4/5 Good

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A wonderfully kitschy motel with no bells and whistles, but the room was clean and spacious (the bathroom was HUGE). The proximity to the Boardwalk can't be beat. Plenty of parking, a great mural on the front, and just a fun place to stay. If you want/need/expect 5 star Hotel service, this is not for you. If you are traveling with the fam and want comfy beds and easy access to all the fun, this place is perfect. Do bring your own soap/shampoo/lotion, etc. They do not provide these items. They DO provide nice towels that smell of bleach! Fun place to stay. Would absolutely book again.
