Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place is completely outdated. There was no air conditioning in the bedroom so it was brutally hot to sleep. The TV didn't work. This a completely "no frills" facility, but the price is high. Worst place I have ever stayed.

Excellent location. Close enough for a short walk to the beach and boardwalk- far enough away from the intense action to actually get to sleep through the night! More of an old fashion style location that had been updated at some point. It’s all about the location, location, location! Staff was so wonderfully friendly and helpful. Communication was excellent.

Was greeted enthusiastically by the owner at check-in. Super friendly and accommodating. Went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and even offered to pick up a bag of ice for us when he went to the store. Very clean room and property. Walking distance to the beach! Strongly recommended. We’ve found our spot to stay any time we visit seaside in the future.
