We stayed here based on the fact that they are pet friendly, and were one of the few hotels still available, since it was a holiday weekend. The first nights price was way too much at $300+ a night, plus a $40 pet fee. At check in we decided to stay a second night, getting a price for that was a bit difficult, as the girl checking us in had to ask 2 different people. We were given a price of $199 plus the $40 pet fee. I'm honestly not sure if that is what we were charged or not, the bill summary they give you at check out is a bit confusing. I will have to investigate it further. Also, I'm not quite sure why this is considered a resort? There was a restaurant on site, a fitness center, and pools. That's not my definition of a resort, but whatever. When we ate at the restaurant, we wanted to have the bill charged to our room acct, but the waitress told us we could not because we didn't have a room charge card. Obviously, when checking in the girl did not give us it. Also, the hotel has 14 floors, and only 3 elevators. As you can imagine, there were times they we had to wait and wait for an elevator. Sometimes when an elevator did come it was already full, causing us to have to wait once again for another elevator. Another issue we had was dogs barking in the middle of the night. Obviously we have a dog ourselves, but she does not cause a bunch of noise. When my husband called the front desk to make them aware of the barking, they told him they'd send security up. I'm not sure that they did, because the barking continued. Our dog found a pair of socks in the room, that were not ours. You would think that housekeeping would have found those while cleaning. The beach behind the hotel is very nice. Although, it is quite far from the boardwalk. But there is still many stores within walking distance. But, do not stay here and expect to be able to walk to the boardwalk within minutes. We may stay here again, if the price was lower. In my opinion, the room is worth $175 max per night.
