If you want to shower in dirt 👍👍
Our room was very run down paint peeling in need of a big refresh. All of what i saw of the hotel was pretty run down. The shower in our room was filthy it was disgusting mold and layer on top of layers of dirt. You couldn't pay me to take a shower there. I was so glad we were only staying one night. Never again.

This place is like staying in jail! The beds are like jail cots, walls have filth all over them, black mold in the bathroom & shower. The staff is not personable and you are lucky you can find someone. On site parking is a joke…came out to my vehicle surrounded in trash cans & trash bags. City trash threw garbage cans at my truck causing damage. When I approached the hotel desk staff I was told “oh well, we have city trash that’s where they pick it up!” Never again!

This property is a no frills hotel that is in walking distance to the boardwalk/beach. Last year, I would have said it was family friendly. This year, my nice got sick on the first night of our stay with a fever sore throat and runny nose. The next morning, she had the same symptoms. As she is not old enough to have gotten a COVID vaccine, I decided to check out and get her home. The hotel is trying to charge me for the nights I did not stay. The manager, Dawn, who also manages another property next door, refused to come speak to me in person claiming she could not leave the desk. What she did tell me is that I would be charged for the nights I didn't stay. I'm now contesting the charge with my credit card company. This hotel is fine on the surface, and seems to be run by pretty savvy college students. However, when problems arise, you are treated like dirt by management. Dawn refused to tell me the name of the hotel owner, claiming he lived out of state. She refused to come to meet me and I couldn't meet her as my 9 year old niece was upstairs. Awful service, horrible customer treatment.
