Exactly what you expect for a beach motel. No frills, but right next to the boardwalk (great location, free parking). If you have little kids, you can hear the music from the nearby club into the early night. Had a nice time. Only issue was there was not hot water and the hotel was not full so that was difficult to understand.

Location location location. Directly across the street from the beach and boardwalk. The neighborhood is a bit on the noisy side but I felt safe and the room was clean. Staff was great.

After reading many bad reviews, I was very hesitant to book, but still did because of the location. It's your typical seaside motel. It def needs alot of improvement (fresh paint, minor repairs, new beds/furniture, hooks to hang towels, hangers & small closet or rod for clothing etc.) Brought our own showerhead, towels, cleaning supplies and disinfectant. Cleaned before using anything. But, staff was friendly, pool very clean AND best part- best location! Steps from boardwalk & beach. Best breakfast spot across the street. Would return & recommend, if you're not picky and ok with a non 5 star hotel.

We found a roach in our room it was so dirty. Didn’t feel comfortable to take a shower. One of the beds in our room was broken you literally sank on the one side our heads were lower than our feet and we felt like we were going to room off. Woke up from very little sleep with bad back pain. The lady at the front desk was so out of it she wrote us 3 parking passes (we didn’t need) she just kept writing them and forgetting she just wrote one. Wasn’t worth the money
