This is such a dirty motel be it the rooms or all he bathroom it was like everything would fall apart at anytime. There is no sense of basic hygiene here and to top it all the staff was rude. Please DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Holes in the walls, hot tub had slime on the tiles, tv didnt work or have a remote. Do not stay here. The minute we walked in we knew we weren't going to stay here.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Classic you get what you pay for. This hotel is a quarter mile from the Boardwalk. It is in okay condition, rooms had all the essentials but were not the cleanest. Front desk attendant (presumably the owner) was not friendly and seemed bothered by needing to help us check in. I get the sense that he has to deal with a lot of people being less than nice to him and he has thus become salty. Breakfast exceeded my expectations, I was thinking there would be danishes and coffee but they had waffles, bread, cereal, yogurt, boiled eggs, coffee and orange juice.

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked that the beach was walking distance from this location & I liked how this location had its own parking, that was very convenient. The only think I didnt like was that some likes weren't turning on & that we found 2 spiders in our room
Stayed 4 nights in Apr 2022
