The location was pretty good within walking distance to Beach and Boardwalk, but that’s the only redeeming quality of this place. The parking was atrocious, and the rooms were very rundown in great need of a facelift.

Staff was super friendly. We got a room in which toilet seat was broken, smelled of weed, there was no running water in the shower and sheets had stains. Very gross. Hotel had better rooms but not sure how booking site rooms. Same room booked thru Hotel.com, was much better. Over all bathrooms needs update no matter which room you stayed in.
