There is a reason there are no photos of their rooms online and I wish I would have taken one or two but I wasn't thinking of a review when we stayed here. I would really give this a 2.5. We stayed in one of their "hot tub" rooms. It was a Choice Rewards special with a bottle of wine. It had a king-sized bed, hot tub, fridge, microwave and TV. We were initially supposed to stay in an inn but they had a family emergency and would not be there to let us in till late—so we altered our plans and stayed here—not much to choose from... I've stayed in a number of hotels over the years and this was not one of the good highlights but it certainly was not the worst. The room was okay clean for what it was—a room out of the 70's. The mattress was a concave bowl but the sheets and cover appeared clean. The hot tub was next to the bed and seemed relatively new and sat up on a tiled platform—definitely the newest thing in the room, except for maybe the flat screen TV. Surprising I noticed while I was laying in bed that there were no sprinklers on the ceiling—anywhere—so the last time they remodeled was before they required them—when was that? The refrigerator was under the sink next to the bathroom—my wife and I both banged our toes on it several times and made it difficult for me to shave stretching over the appliance. There was a small safe in the room but too small for my laptop. The bathroom was acceptable but once again not anything special—the water in the shower worked and I was not up to my ankles in water while showering—so I was good. There was also a zebra-striped covered chair when we first entered the room by the door on the right. I was afraid to sit in it, Lord knows what was growing on it..it also was not in the best location directly in front of the door. On Saturday we got someone in the room above us—yes I could tell because it was like living in an apartment in my twenties. Every step they took was a loud creak and I thought they were going to come through the floor—I am assuming they were heavy—I have rarely heard someone in the floor above me in a hotel—not the best experience overall. For what I paid for the room for two nights would have easily paid for a decent room with a view on the water at the beach so I was expecting a nicer room—however I can't compare it to other accommodations locally because this was my first stay in the area. The Hotel did have a small workout room across from the front desk. I usually use the workout rooms in hotels but it just didn't call to me—a little cramped. There was also a breakfast included in their attached small dining room. It was edible with folded scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, the usual drinks and oatmeal and raisin bran. I don't remember fruit but we only did it one morning and I just don't recall. The staff was friendly and accommodating in both the hotel and dining room. Wine was supposed to be supplied with the room according to the Choice Rewards site when my wife made the plans online. They were not aware of it, but did go out and buy us one...It wasn't wine but a bad bottle of champagne? It was terrible but it did not figure into my room review, I wasn't expecting much anyway but would have preferred wine—I left it in the fridge. This hotel is in desperate need of a serious makeover to get it a few decades closer to acceptable. Overall in terms of hotels this would be more along the line of a middle of the road Motel 6 on the New Jersey Turnpike not a $$$ room that I want to spend a romantic getaway with my wife for our anniversary. Once again it was not our original plan—that is why we stepped up to a hot tub room—which definitely was the highlight of the hotel visit—My wife and I used it every day and if we closed our eyes we could pretend we were somewhere else. We made the best of it.
