After staying in a nice hotel for 3 days and it raining eveyday we wanted to stay 1 more day (cause it was finally going to be sunny). Our hotel was booked up so we had to get another room for 1 day. We found this place and it looked nice from the outside. When we checked in room 109 smelled like cat urine so we changed to 108. We dropped our bags and went to the beach. What a mistake we should of checked it out. When we got back to the room my 3 children wanted to go in the pool. I noticed graffiti on the entertainment center, dead flies on the windows and mold at spots. It was bad but my wife said its just 1 night and the kids wanted to stay so bad. We went to the boardwalk and after the fireworks we returned to the room cause my my 4 year old needed the bathroom. We opened the door and the cat urine smell made my 4 year old gag. I went to the front desk and he said why didn't we complain when we checked in. I told him the smell was not there then. He gave me cleaning supplies and I cleaned the room. We then decided we had to pack up and leave cause our children could not sleep there. We were told to call the owner to get a refund the next day. So we had to drive 2 hours home with 3 children. When I called the next day I was called a scam artist who used the hotel for a pool and shower. I told him I would call the health department and BBB (which I did). He laughed and said no matter how many bad reviews he had he would still be booked everynight cause this is seaside and people need hotels. I was shocked. I talked to people outside before I left and they to had alot of problems and thought the place was dirty. I cannot believe that people stay their in filth just cause it is so close to the beach. I wish more people would report them and just not write a bad review.
