Myself and two of my friends booked this hotel for bike week almost a year ago and were looking so forward to a nice stay at the margate and a good time during bike week. what had really excited us and caught our eye was the beach bar which is also open to the public, and the overall appearance of the "resort". I will quickly fill you in on our nightmare stay and experiences that we had there.... First of all our room was highly out dated and not clean whatsoever, you could get a better dinner or breakfast from Mcdonalds and there is about two people working the whole place at any given time. On Sat. 6/16/12 we went down to the beach bar for a few drinks before heading out to the broken spoke for the real party and while there had about three rounds of beers and a friend of mine had a few shots with our waitress whom appeared to be about fifteen years old but claimed to be twenty four, every round or shot that we ordered we paid for on the spot with CASH. upon the arrival of our taxi the bar tender comes to us with two different checks for drinks we never ordered nor drank. after going back and forth with her I ended up asking for a manager whom wouldn't listen to what I had to say and then went running across the street and brought two state troopers back as if i was threatening to kill him or something. I was so calmly talking this BOY of an owner who appears to be about twenty years old who ended up being the owner and he had no clue how to react to the situation so that's how he responded. Nothing ever came of the situation but I will say one thing I will never stay there again and I DO NOT recommend this place to anyone!!!! I
