As the title states, this hotel is indeed infested with roaches.
Back in August 2005, my family spent their third year in a row at this hotel. The year before we got the same room as the year before that, but we noticed that year that the room was much older and the trimming around the bed was being torn off. Though I may be the young daughter of the family of five, the Quality Inn was only hated by me. My parents love it since it gives a great view of the ocean and boardwalk. Sure, it may be nice to see all the bikes passing by in the morning, but later in the day it become riff-raff and touristy. The beds were okay in my room, but the sheets were sort of stiff.
One of the things that I hated was that our television lacked a remote control. We have asked the manager countless times for a remote for the television, but appearently they said that tourists must have stole it on their vacation and they do not have back-ups. The outdoor pools were very poorly made; no lifeguards were hired and children could easily unattach pool dividers and play around with them. The tourists are very rude there, too. Every morning, they would lay their beach towels out on the chairs near the pool so then they can "reserve" their spot. DO NOT GO INTO THE INDOOR POOL. Sure, it does look sort of nice with the fake greenery placed around it, but the clorine horribly damages the hair. The food at the little mini cabana bar was very pricy for very little.
This hotel is infested with roaches, thus the title of this review "this hotel is infested with roaches". During my previous stay there, we have found two roaches living in the hotel. If you find one, you're bound to find more. One of the roaches was on my mom's bed. It was pretty ignorable. The other roach was on the curtain that split the TV room from the bedroom/mini kitchen. Eww...
Overall, I would not go here. Instead, think about the Holiday Inn next door, the Grand, the Capri, the Golden Sands, and there was another one that I heard about that I can't remember the name of.
