“A cold winter night”
Reviewed January 3, 2005

Checked in at 10pm after a difficult 4 hour drive looking forward to a good night sleep. As we entered the building and walked down the hallway, my wife remarked that it felt colder inside the building than out. We opened the door to the room and were stunned by how incredibly cold it was. Although it is winter, it was 50 degrees outside at the time.

We turned the heater on and waited a few minutes for warm air to come out. Then we called the front desk to tell them the heat wasn't working and the man said they would be right up. We waited ten more minutes which gave us the chance to look around the room. Everything from the furniture (including bedding) to the carpet and towels looked 2nd hand.

Nobody from the office came to our room so I went outside, saw a competitor next door and walked over to see if they had a room available. They did. I went back to the office and requested a refund. At first they resisted and told me someone goes up to the room a half an hour before check-in to make sure everything is working. Yea, sure.

A few minutes later they agreed to give me a full refund and we were happy to be out of there. "Innkeepers" who don't seems to be the rule for that chain in that particular area - yet in other areas they are fine.

Reviewed September 28, 2004

We went earlier this month, and although we didn't see any elevators, we didn't mind climbing the stairs to our 2nd fl. room. Our room was very clean and comfortable. They served a typical continental breakfast; cereal, donuts, toast, juice, coffee, tea; but that was quite sufficient for us. It was about 15 min. away from Atlantic City, and about 45 min. to Cape May. We chose to stay there because of it's close proximity to both of them, since we had a boat trip planned in Cape May. They had an outdoor pool that didn't look very clean, but we wouldn't have wanted to go in anyway, because it was a little cool then. The ammenities were quite good too. It certainly wasn't fancy, but, a very good hotel. The price was good too. Both my husband and I would go back again.
