I liked to location of the hotel even with having to boat across the channel to the island and the service was very quick never a long wait. The hotel is close to the boardwalk and restaurants. Unfortunately this hotel has run down a bit and showing it's age, the pictures on the web page do not display the reality, the laundry room service was not.t available until the day before leaving and the WiFi was very poor to non existent in our room. I think with a little more maintenance and making sure patio doors opened and screens worked it would help a lot. The beds were terrible, they need replacing urgently, so soft I could barely sleep and my back was sore every morning. In 1992 when last there it was 100% better.
