Stayed at this hotel for one night this week. I feel slightly ripped off. Total cost ended up being around $115 after including taxes (got the "August Special" so I don't know what the usual cost is). The price isn't what bothered me though, as it was in-season down the shore. What bothered me was what I got for the price...a phone booth of a room and a crawl space of a bathroom. The room was smaller than any dorm room I had during college. The room consisted of a double bed, which took up almost all of the space, a small table a chair set (completely unecessary), a dresser with tv on top, small micro/fridge, and a single bar to hang clothes on with about 4 hangers. There was barely any room to move in the room and NO room to move in the bathroom. The bathroom was a stall shower, sink and toilet. My boyfriend and I tried to brush our teeth at the same time in the morning and clunked heads...it was that tiny! If it had been more that one night I would have been pretty angry. It was definitely over priced for what you got.
I can't complain about the cleanliness. Both the bathroom and room itself were clean and did not have any sort of smells to them. However, there were dated and the shower curtain had some mildew around the rings. The towels, on the other hand, had A LOT of hairs stuck in them, which grossed me out (this is more of a problem with the hotel's laundry service than the hotel itself). The one thing I really did enjoy about the room was the small front deck. We had a street side room that included a shared deck and since no one was staying next door we had the whole thing to ourselves. Much nicer than the usual balcony. Probably the only positive about the room. The place is good for one night, but would be very uncomfortable for two. However for the cost, I'm certain you could find something a little better.
