Location kitchen could not hear other guests through the walls. Very Clean
didn't care for mattress on pull out bed. Would have liked housekeeping to vacuum better sand was everywhere!!
I stayed in a queen room with a kitchenette it was very well equipped and clean. Definitely 4 stars
WiFi did not work for us in the room....very slow and in and out, it only worked outside. Also I was going to cook on the pool grills but I couldn't light the 1 and they were both dirty with dirty utensils hanging from them so I chose to cook inside instead.
Parking...the last night we had to ask where to park..no spaces Couch horrible shape time for the dump. The bed did not get made Asked for hangers since only 4 in the room ..we never got them. Asked for an ice bucket and was given a trash liner. Was not told ahead of time that we would be given...I am sure the price was included in the room...a beach badge...we bought it....and the women just looked at us....no apology nothing....
Office staff were very helpful and friendly
Furnishing and fixtures (kitchenette supplies, etc.) were deficient
Room was cute, well furnished, mostly modern. Pool rules said no swming after 6, but we went in and did not get in trouble. They let me leave my car there after we checked out so we could go to the beach for a couple hours.
Room was small, two block walk to the beach, the section of beach is very rocky, so limited swimming area when ride is up.
Heated pool, friendly staff, awesome location, great value
Close to beach, heated outdoor pool, clean, friendly staff
Could have had a bit more counter space in the kitchenette
Nice pool plus air-conditioned rooms.
Rooms with almost no amenities, such as tissues, hair drier, very few lamps, and packets of poor coffee.
convenient to beach
no good space to hang wet clothes. top bed sheets were clean but "bed bug covers" over box spring were disgustingly dirty and stained.
Location was great to boardwalk/beach, shops, restaurants Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were able to add a night to our stay and the front desk was very helpful with that. Room layout was great for our family. Pool was nice feature which we were able to get great use out of.
Could have used a couple more chairs outside in front of the room so, we could sit outside.
We loved this location because we were so close to the boardwalk. Our rooms gave us ample space and the owner even gave us a free upgrade because he thought we'd be more comfortable in a larger unit than the one we first selected. Now that is customer service.
We would have loved it if the pool opened earlier!
The location to boardwalk and beach is very nice and quite close. Staff was very nice and allowed us to keep our beach tags and car parked a little longer than the usual check-out time. Cleaning staff was also very nice. Didn't use pool, but it looked refreshing. Would stay again if in a different, more up-graded room.
Room 40 is less than desirable -- but other rooms are supposed to be much nicer since they are individually owned. Beds were comfortable, but decor was very dated and the overall room impression was poor. Room was small and the kitchenette was sufficient, but you wouldn't want to cook anything more than soup because there is just no space. Bathroom was clean, but the shower was dark -- no light in there. Make sure to call and ask what room you are in and go on the website and look at the rooms -- pictures are probably spot on. The staff know this particular room is not as nice and have tried to make it better, but it is acceptable ONLY if you want a place to sleep and a quick shower.
It was very clean and comfortable and convenient to the boardwalk. We were only there one night but will definately go back.
No closets.....popcorn in the bed....a pair of shorts under the bed....half empty water bottle on the window sill.....and two nights in a row came back to the room smelling of skunk weed!!! This place was such a disappointment....staff was told...but didn't care....nothing was offered...of course no discount....don't stay here!!!!!
the gentleman who took our reservation was very pleasant and accommodating.
the air conditioning window unit had been replaced and the old broken one was still in the closet. the fridge had been replaced and the old broken one was still in the room. the pot and pans were heavily scratched teflon and unusable. we ended up spending as little lime in the room as possible and never cooked there, despite our intent to cook most meals in the room. the kitchen, aside from the fridge was useless. we were nervous about the smoke detector, which was hanging off of the wall.
Staff very, very helpful with everything. Liked the tile floors.
No place to put everyones clothes (4)
The set-up of our room was perfect for a family with two teens. The location was great as well. Also, since we were staying early in the season, we got the benefit of all the cleaning & "sprucing up" that took place over the winter months.
We were only given 2 beach tags for a family of 4. When we arrived, 5 light bulbs were burned out and we had to replace them.
Leaving was the best part.
Not enough parking spaces for number of rooms. Tiny, cramped room. Not enough lighting in room. TV in unwatchable location. No drawers or place to hang clothes. They have a stove but no table to eat on. (makes no sense)Loud "Philadelphia" guests partying in the pool WAY past the time pool was supposed to close. Old paint cans and other debris in plain view on first floor. The whole place is generally dirty and an eye sore. I will never stay here again and would recommend anyone thinking of staying here to check it out carefully before reserving a room.
The location was pretty good (on a few blocks from the boardwalk) and the pool was a nice extra. The rooms and furniture were old but clean.
Beds were not very comfortable; linens and towels were low quality. Could hear all outside noises including rowdy neighbors through the walls even with air conditioning on.
Well equipped for our purpose.
No carpet near bed.
the location was good and near everything.
pool was a little small
I would not stay here again. For the few days we get to spend away from home I want something better.
The room was very small and the bed very uncomfortable. Kitchen area was awful. Bathroom tiny
close to beach value
Wifi did not work Pictures vs. what it really looked like
the staff was wonderfully attentive and concerned that we have a pleasant stay. The room was clean and fairly comfortable. The pool was nice.
It was a little dated, otherwise a nice place to stay.
Great place and location
