Room is incredibly small, approximately 10x10 plus small bathroom, no private balcony or motel pool. AC and bathroom fixtures worked fine. Upcharges for towels and almost everything imaginable. Wifi included but was unable to connect. Room uses hard keys requiring $20 cash deposit. Parking served well for walking distance to inlet and lower boardwalk attractions. Seemed expensive considering the low end accommodations.

Ceiling of room appears to be caving in. Loud obnoxious music from the abyssinia restaurant next door all night. Clothing in suitcases soaked from moisture in room.

Room service came very late in the day. Should come at morning time. Didn't have enough towels and the front desk staff didn't want to give any extra. That was displeasing

The hotel is close to the beach

Pros: Close to the beach
Cons: Everything, this is an old hotel, that doesn't care how it looks, and can get the price for an upscale hotel because it's close to the beach.
Location: Location is excellent for all the attractions, boardwalk and beach
The best part about this hotel is that it is 1 block from the beach. The room was tight,the floor was dirty, no lamps on the table, air conditioner was louder than the TV, the shower curtain had mold on the bottom. I felt that if someone had pushed on the door it would have opened and being by myself, this was an uncomfortable thought. The price was way too much for this kind of room even through Expedia, but it was close to the beach. So be careful wanting to be close to the beach. Oh yeh, the parking was tight as well with no additional parking anywhere. You will know how the rooms are based on the way the office look, and the office was not good.

Loved it. Only downfall was no microwave and bathroom could be a little bigger but couldn't beat it for the price and being one block from the ocean. Didn't have to drive anywhere except to go get towels so it was nice.

You get what you pay for. It was what I expected for the price. We just wanted a place to crash n shower. The towel bar was missing, no toilet paper holder, sandy floor, musty/moldy smell, tv was broken off the wall and it was very small. It served its purpose for a quick weekend. I wouldn't stay any longer than that. Nice close location to Boardwalk though.

Hotel Okay

Pros: Nice Bathroom
Cons: Ceiling
Location: one block from boardwalk. Advertised as Boardwalk.
Hotel price was fine for the Middle of the Summer. Glad we were only staying the night. Doors were hard to open and close. Everyone had to slam their door in order for it to close. Our Hotel ceiling was in bad shape with black spots in every divider between drop ceiling tiles. Wasn't sure it wasn't from mold stains. Should have spent the extra money an went somewhere else. Check in was 4 and check out was 11 am not exactly got my monies worth. Very disappointing.
