Clean rooms and bed. Easy to get around town from this hotel. Manager was helpful and very nice. Will stay here again.
Ice machine did not work for me? Not sure if it was not on
Location was great, close to the boardwalk and beach.
Old, noisy uncomfortable beds. Overall dingy feel to the place.
Corion countertops kitchen
The bed was on wheels, on a wooden floor, when you moved, the bed moved.
We found the motel to be well furnished with a useable kitchenette and swimming pool. The location was very convenient.
Nice location nice accommodations clean
bed in living room frame loose Shower leaked water out shower head the whole time No light in shower
The pool was very nice, but could stay open alittle later. Location was good.
Not easy access to our room.. Need stairs or elevator on other side of hotel
very cute decor and close to beach. we also enjoyed the barbecue facilities. the pool was nice too.
It was close to beach
Everything! Room was nothing like website pictures. It claimed to sleep 4, I don't think it was big enough for one person. The furniture was filthy, there were stains running down the wall, the a/c stank and was rusted out. Awful.
Would liked to have another fan to move the air into the bed room.
Staff was helpful and the boardwalk was only a block from the hotel.
Had a room that slept 6 and it was a rather small area for that many people. Parking was very tight.
This is suppose to be a family room. But the room was so small I would have done better in just a normal hotel room. They said if we did not use booking.com they would have taken care of us. But we ended up paying the same amount for this small room as the other larger family rooms! Not sure why they have the same price. This room was so small there was no where to put your clothes or even place your suit cases. There was no where to hang wet things.! Were at the shore! There was no closet and no draws. The bath room and shower were so small. You could not even get your elbows up to wash your hair. The room is located on the outside of the motel. Street side. They have night lights on at the hotel that shine right in the room all night long! The beds are the worst beds I ever slept on. When I mention this to the staff they were rude. The man there told the front desk girl give her money back for one night and bye bye! He was trying to kick me out of the hotel! I than told him I will mention it online and he said go headed! Don't get room 22 whatever you do!!!! Rip off!!!!
it was very clean and friendly
Laundry room door was noisy
Location was close to the beach.
The room given was horribly old fashion and depressing. Patched up holes on the walls. Dark and gloomy. Damp feeling. Lighting was bad, bulbs were missing. Food on the kitchen floor. Used Qtip on bedroom floor. Shower so small that not even my 10yr old could fit. Had to step out just to soap up. This stay was for my 10yr old's bday. Even she was disappointed. My husband and teenager wanted to stay out all day to avoid the room. We got the Bates Motel at a Meriot Price. Worst place we've stayed at but it WONT happen again.
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!
