Rooms dirty beds not comfort people fighting in the parking lot
Proximity to Boardwalk. Separate room accommodations in suites.
Not enough towels available for amount of guests, had to wait until "laundering done" to get additional face towels. No tv in second room. Still renting out old rooms with disgustingly low sunken mattresses and partially painted walls.
loud noise level at night
Wifi didn't work
The staff and the indoor pool.
Pool and spa was decent. Employees very friendly.
Black mold in bathroom. Hair all in shower and toilet. Carpet pealing up. Half painted half not. Blankets stinky and dog hair all over it. Carbon monoxide detectors are near the ceiling. When they should be near the floor.
Staff was horrible. Front desk young man and woman Were talking back to unhappy customers. They dislocated a party of 9 as they stated they had the right to refuse service. They yelled at customers and told a lady that her daughter was making a scene. They charged my credit card yet said charge did not go through. We had nowhere to go and had two young children It was terrible
Great king size bed, very good shower, closeness to beach and downtown
Price- too expensive, internet didn't work well
It's a dump - Don't stay here.
the pool and the room arrangement
the lack of cleanliness, from the outside to the inside. I felt like I needed to bathe - furniture stained and dirty, bedding was questionable and regular service was poo (only bath towels, no face cloths or hand towels. Cheap shampoo/lack of other amenities.
Nice remodleing 2 rooms in one good size fridge my daughter loves comming here she will only want to come here and the hot tub and the pool were large in size a 7 feet deep pool and a 3 feet deep hot tub od
The door of the bathroom got stuck and the extra room door did not lock
Loved how close it was to the boardwalk. It was cleaned well each day and had just got brand new a/c units.
It was just an older place with not much parking. I have a bigger pickup truck and i couldnt even get thru the entrance
Close to board walk
Smell very bad, needs to clean more often the carpet
Newly refurbished room but unfortunately it was not finished. No towel bats, to dispenser, closet poles etc
Seedy clientele. Parties going on. Smokers and cigarette butts everywhere
Spacious and good for 3 ppl. Complimentary breakfast. Walking distance to the board walk
It was close to the boardwalk and for one night stay the right price.
The room was smelly, the door was difficult to Open and Close, the lock took me several tries to work because of the misaligned door, the bathroom was gross, the carpet was filthy, the bedspreads had cigarette holes in them and were really worn, one small blanket on each bed, the lights did not work in one of the rooms. We stayed here two weeks earlier and the room we had before was clean, nice beds and comfortable. That is why I stayed a second time, unsure if there would be a third.
Customer service was good and check-in was easy.
Moldy showers. Paint peeling off of walls and doors. Stained and old carpet. Empty AC area not covered and had see through holes. Noisy neighbors. Bed and headboard too squeeky. No electrical plugs. Barely slept because I was afraid that something would crawl on me or someone would break in. All other places were booked.
location, there was indoor pool/hot tub but did not get a chance to use.
old furniture, holes in walls and door. Checked us into room (2 bdrm) that clearly was not serviced yet, but then the maids came and serviced within 15 minutes. We clearly got a room that was not renovated, as we saw some were.
IN DOOR POOL WALKING DISTANCE TO BOARDWALD
ROOMS COULD BE A LITTLE CLEANER
My family of six had a great stay. Don't judge a book by its cover. The exterior if the property is in poor condition but the queen suites were fresh with updates and clean and comfortable. The indoor pool and spa were clean but lacked seating. Five minute walk to the Boardwalk and beach. Great location!
No seating the indoor pool. No ironing board or iron in rooms.
Hard beds, dirty environment, smoking customers, loud, poor breakfast options
Staff were friendly and attentive
Room was not completely renovated. Doors needed to be worked on paint chipped all over door. No air conditioner attached which could see holes to outside. No closet doors. Bathroom lock wrong end of door. Could see paint on walls started but could tell not completed. Window screen falling apart. Pool and spa needed to be cleaned, spa especially.
The beds were comfortable. There was a mini-fridge and microwave.
The rooms were not finished and there was no air/heating unit. There was a hole in the wall for the air heating unit that was covered by a piece of cardboard. There was no other furniture in the room other than the beds, nightstand, TV and dresser. There was no closet or space to hang clothing. The was no coffee pot. There were no documents or fliers or any paper with the address of the hotel or nearby amenities.
