3/5 Okay

A place to stay near the beach .
It is basically a 3 star hotel. It was. It flattering to see when driving up or when entering the room, but it had what we needed. It is a short drive from the boardwalk, and the cleaning service did a nice job between nights. It's not the nicest placw to stay, but it was quiet and mostly clean with proximity to he beach. We had a good stay here.
