We had such a great time! House was clean and perfectly located to all we wanted to do. We will want to book again.
This hotel is very nice. Well staffed and rooms are clean and quiet. The restaurant on site is excellent with live music and very good food and drink. Would recommend and will stay again.

Rude customer service. No breakfast. Sand in my bed. Kept asking us to park in the unlit back of hotel so they could sell the parking spots to boardwalk customers at night. called me 3 times to move my car while I was at the boardwalk just so they could sell my spot. RUDE AND DIRTY. NEVER AGAIN.

Took 3 days to get ahold of anyone there. Had a death in the family and called to cancel, but no one answers the phone or returns emails. No voicemail either. Had to contact Expedia to contact the manager, three DAYS after I was supposed to check in. I would never book here again.

Staff was very polite and welcoming. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Continental breakfast was more than expected, with very yummy waffles 😁. Overall it was a great stay and within walking distance to the boardwalk and a great Mexican restaurant.
