Older hotel in need of repairs and paint. Still a good deal for it's location and price. The pictures were not representative of the room we booked. We would stay there again.

The property is old and outdated. The rooms need fresh paint and new carpets.There were cracks and breaks along the walls and baseboards. We got 2 towels and 2 washcloths for a family of 4 and there wasn't a towel rack to hang towels on. The only good thing i can say about this spot is the location is about as good as you can get. What they lack in everything else, they make up for by being next to the Warf and Boardwalk area.
