My Husband and I stayed here due to the fact that we wanted to goto to beach and that the hotel was pet friendly. The first stay was for 3 nights and then we stayed here again for another night a few days later. The first stay started out weird.
My husband booked the 3 nights for $559 and then I called to check and see if they had anything cheaper with the king non smoking room... We then got a totally different quote for $370- Huge difference and we were glad I called back...
When we arrived, we were so tired... We didn't really care what the place looked like. The bed was comfy and that was what we wanted. The front desk guy was very nice and helpful! However, when we got up and went downstairs to the "contenintal" breakfast... It was a joke. There were old bagels and doughnuts. Needless to say, we didn't eat any of that.
On the 2nd stay we were able to do an early check in which was fabulous, cause again we were exhausted! We got an "updated/ remodeled" room which, by appearance was nice, but it couldn't have been completed yet... Nothing matched, the shower wall was cracked really bad and the floor (although it looked nice) was a major hazard! The floor was a laminate wood, which looked new, but it was soooo slippery. My dog even had a hard time bending down to eat/ drink. I can't tell you how many times I almost slipped!
I don't know about any bed bugs... I certainly had bites on my legs, but I never saw any bugs and we were at the beach and there are a lot of flys and who knows what else flying around on the boardwalk...
We also didn't like the fact that the other hotel "residence" folks would smoke out on the main landings and flick their cigarettes on ya while you were wlking up the stairs... Not the most inviting. We never ran into anyone doing anything illegal or fighting or being rude...
I can tell you one thing... for the value of the hotel and the atmosphere... The pice of the hotel is more than it should be... I was glad I called back and got a cheaper quote cause I would have really been ticked if we had paid $559 for the 3 nights. I even think that $370 was to much...
Over all... would I stay here again?... Maybe... If we couldn't find somewhere else. The no pet fee was great!
