1 star rooms for a 4 star price. Room was incredibly small, heater fan sounded like a freight train, shower was cold, front desk staff was unpleasant, no coffee in the toom, no amenities. Great location

Convenient and affordable - close to the Boardwalk! Very quiet and we were able to sleep comfortably (but it probably has to do with it being the off-season). Shower's dispensers for combo shampoo/body wash are an odd first, but eco-friendly! Served the basic needs for an overnight stay.

More of a motel than hotel
The location of the hotel is good - a couple of minutes from the boardwalk. The room was clean, but run down and kind of depressing. I stayed one night so it was not a big deal. I was able to bring my dog for an additional $20, which is very reasonable in comparison to other hotels. No amenities on site - I had to walk ten minutes to grab a cup of coffee in the morning.
