Overall it was fine, but this hotel is in need of a good cleaning and a facelift...the décor is tired, stairwells, elevator, and common area bathroom musty, and the glass doors/handles around the pool and common areas were never cleaned the whole time we were there. Breakfast was definitely on the low end (limited choices, no-brand everything), and it would be nice to have a bathroom in or around the pool area. Not deal breakers, but definitely items of note since the price-tag on our stay was anything but cheap.
This was our first visit to MB and what a fun place! This hotel's location on the boardwalk and proximity to activities is great, the beach is beautiful, and the pool/lazy river were fun for the 7 teens we had in tow. Front desk staff is super friendly, housekeeping maybe not as much. We didn't realize it was Mustang week, so it was pretty busy and equally LOUD (into the wee hours!), but that didn't slow us down. We loved being right in the thick of things with the ferris wheel next door, fireworks at the pier, and rows of shops and restaurants all around, but if you're looking for a quiet getaway, you'll want to go somewhere else!
