Upon arrival, towels were dirty (stained and wrinkled!) used shampoo packets in the shower, bedsheets had questionable stains. Window in bathroom left open and looked directly out into a construction site with workers on the scaffolding!! Shower had mold! Pillows were so thin we had to request 2 extra each person. No light in the hallway to the bathroom - tripped down the stairs twice. The queen bed was too big for the room, where only one person could move around the bed to get to the door. The mattress was tacoed without even sitting on it and when we laid down on it it felt like laying on cardboard pieces. There is a large gap under the door that made it to where you could hear everyone that walked or drove by all night. We felt unsafe!! Fridge made loud clicking noise at night so we had to unplug it. I realize we paid a little bit less for this room to stay, but they should not be allowed to charge any more than $20/night. Location was great to walk to Boardwalk. - parking just ok, thank goodness we have a little car. Seriously I am embarrassed for Expedia to even be representing this hotel.

The stink was terrible, I tried several rooms but had to find a different hotel. They charged me a cancellation fee even though the motel reeked like mold! Don’t stay here!
