Let me start off by saying that upon arrival, about an hour before check in time, the room (we stayed in the Beachcrest condos across the street from the hotel) was surprisingly ready with the exception that the towels were being dried and would be ready later on. That was not a problem with us as we were very happy to get situated and start our vacation and we didn't need the towels at that point yet. Check in was extremely easy and we were just handed keys to our room without any other tips about the hotel. We were told it's across the street, we were pretty much on our own after that. It was a challenge, but we figured out the parking situation and how to get into the building to our room. The room set up was great, all queen beds, and not to bad. Carpeting was just replaced, so that looked great. However, the furniture is getting a bit nicked and it makes it look old and dingy. Also, the walls were in dire need of a fresh paint job. We were given plenty of toiletries for our stay and all was well, until the next day. Our room was never made up, my mother made the beds that day and my father and I took a stroll to the front desk to inquire "why". They looked at us as if they hadn't a clue but opened a door in the lobby area that had towels, washclothes, toilet paper, etc. and told us to help our selves to what we needed. After we took what we needed, even though we paid for room service, someone came to our room to collect all our trash and dirty towels. We were told we would be first on the list the next morning for room service. They didn't come until late in the afternoon and did everything except make up the sofa bed. After that, service was fine but we were only there for 2 more days at the point. We did take advantage of the free boogie boards and umbrellas, but as someone else had mentioned, they are very cheap, but it worked. However, upon borrowing the boogie boards, they only had the small ones and we were told the rest are broken, people steal them. It's a great service to provide to the patrons, but if the hotel cannot keep up with the demand they may consider not offering this anymore. If there were any hotels activities going on, we knew nothing of them. There was not a board in the lobby or anything telling you what was going on. We never asked because we were getting a little dissappointed by this point. But the place grew on us, we had our own pool, it was small, but for the amount of people using it, it worked out great. The hotel pool was always jammed. It was clean, plenty of chairs and tables. Even gas grills, a plus. Location was the best, nearby restaurants such as Bandanas and Little Italy. Bike rentals right next door, and not even a block walk to the boardwalk. Even though we had some issues, after we thought about it, it was kind of nice because nobody bothered you and that might not be such a bad thing after all. Your hardly in the room anyway and vacations are what we make of them and we actually had a great time.
