We were only go to stay for two nights...so this was a welcome retreat for such a short time. My mother & I stayed in one of the rooms with a private balcony on the beach. We had read the other reviews regarding the step down into the room, etc. While I too was disappointed by the 7pm curfew on the pool, I noticed that many other hotels had the same on their signs. The desk stated insurance...but who knows? I still don't know why the whole state of NJ is full service at gas stations either, it's just "one of those things" to us outsiders. I was very happy about the pool not getting much sun, as I don't like to get sun. The 8-9 foot depth of the pool was great...as was the waterfall. It was clean enough, and certianly large enough for most. I LOVED the retro feel of the entire area. The names and colors of the properties along Ocean Ave were a delight. Especially as I usually go to Panama City, which is so very homogenized...and nothing but HUGE glass & steel "resorts" filled with young college kids drinking at beach clubs.
I hope to return next year for a full week or hopefully two!
