The major plus is that it's right on the beach
Posted Aug 23, 2016
We arrived in town from Hershey, PA and our room was ready for us about 2 hours early, which was a major plus. Being on the boardwalk and beach was super convenient. However, the facility wasn't what I was expecting--a lot of worn out, shabby looking carpet and an old, rickety elevator. Our room was in great condition though, and we loved sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean/beach while our daughter napped. The hotel staff were super helpful when it began to pour down rain and we wanted to walk the boardwalk by providing a huge umbrella for us to borrow. The next morning we went downstairs for breakfast. Aside from the made to order omlettes, it wasn't impressive and in my opinion, overpriced. Our daughter, being two, didn't get a lot of sleep the night before and I had called the front desk and asked about a possible extension to our departure so she could nap before we left and make our trip much more tolerable. We were told there were rooms available but it would be up to the day shift staff. When I asked about a possible extension of a few hours to our check out time and possible pricing of same, I was told in no uncertain terms that in season, there are not extended check outs available. I feel like for the comfort of guests, if there are rooms available, in season or not, extend the checkout. We had a very miserable 4 hour trek home because of a lack of naps for our toddler and 2-3 more hours of hotel room would have avoided that. Plus, we were willing to pay.
