The hotel is old and the bathrooms could use an update, as well as some of the common places like where the ice machine is set. The lobby is quaint but dark so we did not spend any time there. Our room did have a smell of stale donuts (there is a donut shop a few feet down the boardwalk), however, opening up the big window in our bedroom quickly solved the problem.
The room was clean and bright and we had a great ocean view. The staff was very accommodating to our requests. I felt the value, for an ocean front room, was very fair.Some rooms have a mini fridge which was nice for chilling wine and bottled water. We really loved the big porch, complete with rocking chairs where you can relax, read and enjoy the ocean view.
