This is our second stay here in the last 4 months, the first stay was nice, no issues for the one night. This time we decided to stay 2 nights, the first night the neighbor room was having a party and we had to noise complain at 2am, and they kind of quieted by 3am, for the inconvenience i asked for a percentage off towards next stay, manager said yes she will contact me and a week later i have yet to hear back. somewhat disappointed with the customer service. We do like the location, convenience of the boardwalk being walking distance. and parking is right next to your room.

The hotel was dated with old furniture and very dirty carpet. The room didn't have blinds curtains or screens on the window in the walkway. The owner upgraded me with what they called a suite that I had to pay an additional $ 90.00. The room had holes in the wall. someone to mop the floor, so we had to use all the towels in the room. When we requested more towels, we were only given 2 large ones. I could go on and on but to what purpose. The only good thing about the room, it was across the street from the car show.

The price was great for location. However no curtain just roll down shade. Couldn't use soap or shampoo. Shower went from burning hot to ice cold. The worst thing was sheets on the bed rock hard and the metal things underneath very loud getting on and off hitting your feet on them

We stayed at this hotel because it is walking distance to the Boardwalk, beach, dining, bowling. Very convenient. However, the rooms need some work...misfit sink faucet, missing baseboards, wall unit hvac. Parking onsite but very tight spots.

The rooms were adequate. Nothing extra and outdated. The parking is on a hill and could be challenging to those with mobility issues. However the location was wonderful, a short walk to the pier and boardwalk with many family friendly activities and excellent food choices for both dine in and take out. Makes for a great weekend being out with friends or family

The front desk lady was very nice and the room was clean. But it's very small. Unfortunately, the bed was really uncomfortable and had metal box springs that squeaked every time you moved. There was a loud party going on next door and the phone in the room didn't work so i couldn't call the office about it. The furniture in the room is too big and non functional. There's a large dresser, which no one needs, and no table. And 1 chair. Every door hinge squeaked loudly. The bathroom fixtures all need replacing etc. It's just old. And the parking is terrible. If my husband wasn't disabled we would not have been able to park on the property.
