Booked this hotel for one night on short notice until our other hotel was available. Turned out to be such a good place I was sorry I didn't stay a couple of nights. Hotel appears relatively new and was very clean. Room was spacious and also very well made up. There was a small indoor pool and hot tub, with a larger outdoor pool right next to it. Breakfast started at 6:00 a.m. and was more extensive than the average hotel breakfast. Wide range of hot and cold items, the morning I was there the bacon and scrambled eggs were very good. Also biscuits and gravy, numerous pastries, breads, bagels, cereals, fruit, and yogurt. They also had the latest in hotel breakfast technology- An automatic pancake machine. Press a button and then watch a digital display as your two pancakes move through the machine to be ejected onto a plate at the end, they were pretty good pancakes! The hotel had adequate parking and good lighting in the area.
This hotel is on the western side of the Coastal Highway but the light and crosswalk at the end of the drive made crossing easy and safe. The beach was about two block away. Since you are so far uptown it is not crowded and seemed cleaner than in town. The beach is protected by lifeguards about 150 yards apart, so its easy to stay close to one. The area around the hotel has many stores and restaurants and is about 20 blocks from a couple of good mini-golf courses at the Delaware state line. There is a large park with hiking/running trails behind the hotel. On the Sunday night we were there a concert and fireworks display took place. This is a good clean family friendly hotel, and a nice option to avoid some of the crowds.
