I liked that is really close to the Fair and main beach. I didn't like the condition of the bathroom, it needs some renovation and upgrades.

It came with a fridge and microwave... the toilet seat should be replaced... damaged and reminds me a frat house back in the day. There was hair and make up on one of the pillows... good thing I brought my own

nice but needs upgrade or tlc
Location to the boardwalk was very convenient, literally one block away. The hotel was a little old and needs a major upgrade, parking is very very tight. Air conditioner was working but room was still musty and warm a little. Other then that it was a nice stay, my family enjoyed the weekend there I would stay again.
