We stayed at the hotel during the Thanksgiving Holiday 2003. It's definitely not a luxery hotel, parking is a little cramped, but we had a wonderful time.
We stayed on the eighth floor which was the right height and had a great view of the ocean and the boardwalk. On the street side of the hotel there was also a balcony off the pool where you could stand and watch the activities on Atlantic Avenue which is full of tourists. At night, especially, it was great with all the lights. The indoor heated pool was also located on this floor. The only bad thing I can say about the stay is you have to go outside to get to the pool (and that's not good if you're staying off season). Also, it is a little too small. My 8-year old loves to swim and enjoyed it.
Everything in the room was working fine. Having a television in each room worked great since I had kids with me. Even found the pull out sofa was not as bad I had read in the reviews. At peak season it's not worth the price, but if you're not picky, it's great to go any other time of the year.
Haven't been back since the renovations, but looking forward to it!
