5 minutes walking distance to the boardwalk
The room was very dated, the room was not very clean and Wi-Fi unstable.
Best deal on strip at that time 5 min walk from boardwalk.
We liked the location and the quiet room.
Very dirty and run down, spotty Wi-Fi, toilet clogged.
Very close to the Boardwalk, walking distance to bars/nightlife and restaurants.
Shower was like a fire hose coming out of the shower head, literally hurt to stand under it. And because it was so powerful, everything in the bathroom got wet. Old furniture and mis-matched chairs. Very very small room for the price. Parking is very limited!!
Loves how close we were to the board walk.
Walls we're a little thin and kids above us were running around all morning. Don't mind kids but it's vacation and sleeping in is a part of relaxing.
Proximity to Boardwalk was great.
The room was old and not very clean. I booked it for four people and was given 2 towels. The bathroom mirror was falling off the wall. There were no towel hooks/racks at all in the bathroom. We stayed 2 nights and the room was not cleaned during our visit. The swimming pool was also closed.
The staff were very friendly and the location was excellent for the price. Plenty of parking also
I liked the location
I booked my room for $219.50 out the door on bookings.com when I got there they made us pay an additional $30 because I had a person with me. Why would I book a room with 2 beds for 1 person? I had no choice but to pay because we were already there. The lady that helped us was not friendly and I would never come here again.
Location was great!
Staff! Asked for extra toilet paper since we just got one and were 2 nights but we never got it.
Very helpful and nice people Great location Clean and comfy
Pool was closed Office was closed most of the time
The receptionist wasn't polite, looks very angry, not patient . Called me many Times at 9.00am when I'll come, I told her ,you Check In is at 2pm ....
Air conditioning didn't work,all the furniture was old dirty and stained,bathroom door didn't shut,very dusty,pool was closed
No ice machine. Bugs in the room. Black mold on the Walls. The stairs gave way as you climbed them. Only have 1 key to the rooms and it's an actual key!! WOW!!!
Two blocks from the board walk and the beach awesome location!!!
Older facilities a little run down!
The only good thing about this place was the location...close to the boardwalk.
Very old & small outdated rooms. Our room smelled horrible, like the old dingy carpet needed to be replaced badly! Oh yeah...no ice machine close by, we were told to walk to the next door motel to use their ice machine...Very Weird!
Worst motel I ever stayed
I didn't like anything
I liked that it was close to bored walk 5 min away.
There was no hot water at all so we paid 250.00 and no shower and they didn't even refund half are money back at least.
The location was within 2 min walking distance to the beach and pier.
The staff were rude and abrupt, trying to check out we were stood at the desk for 10 minutes before anyone came. We also had a broken window in our room, which had been taped with masking tape. I wouldnt stay here again, as there were much nicer places, more than likely the same price, on the same street.
Rude staff, very dirty, hot and stuffy (even when cool outside), broken window repaired with duct tape, non- smoking facilities yet smelled like smoke, and to save the best for last BED BUGS. This place should be shut down- will never return here!
No closet , no place or even door hanger to hang your clothes. the shower with two small and there was no place to sit outside
I liked that it was close to the boardwalk
W well the shower head was broken they only gave us 1 towel for 3 people
price, especially in season it was clean if you want to be near the boardwalk it is a two block walk quiet for a busy neighborhood
pool was closed room was very small
