I was participating in a bike event - Multiple Sclerosis and this was one of the few hotels with vacancy when I booked it. The room is mediocre. I was told in advance that room was pet friendly and may have an odor but main issue was bed seemed old. You can hear the springs as you turn over. The... More

We were very happy with our stay. It's not fancy, and the property is old, but it is well-maintained, reasonably clean, conveniently located, priced well, and has friendly staff. The hotel pool is small, but was clean, and not crowded. The room was decent sized. The beds were comfortable. Staff was accommodating (we checked in very late, and we requested... More

The place seems to be kept clean and neat. We arrived in the morning before our 2:00 check in. We were in the room by 12 though as they got the room cleaned quickly. The room was everything I expected it to be at the price I paid. The WiFi and cable worked very well. The air conditioning was nice.... More

If you think about the core elements that make a solid shore vacation -- a clean, comfortable, affordable room in proximity to beach, boardwalk and good restaurants, with free parking and a decent pool -- this place delivers. Nothing here is going to wow you, but collectively, it all works. Had a nice stay there last weekend. Staff is working... More

Definitely overpriced for an average room. No microwave. Very outdated. The manager is very nice and always accomadating. The property is clean. Had to wait awhile for the hot water. Free WiFi was a plus. Shower needed to be cleaned. Close to the beach. Pool was nice.

The Hotel is in a great location. The rooms were clean and the staff was great. Skip, the manager, was very helpful! The rooms could use a little updating. I highly recommend this hotel. I would also suggest a small continental breakfast.

I wish I could give this motel a higher rating because it has some really great things going for it, and the staff is very nice, but it is in dire need of a major renovation, so I can only rate this as average. It is a beach hotel, and budget friendly, but really needs some TLC! Pros: Manager is... More

My husband & I, his parents & our infant daughter stayed for one night. Room was bigger than I expected. There was plenty of room for my daughter's pack-n-play. The beds were firm but comfy. Bathroom was very outdated but big enough. Shower was a little small with some black mold in the grout lines between the tile but good... More

I only stayed at this hotel for a night for a wedding that weekend and it was perfect. The room was clean. It was only a few blocks from the boardwalk and the beach. It did not have an iron in the room though.

We all got our own rooms. I took too long to book so I got the little apartment suite for 20 bucks more than my friends. We arrived late due to traffic but we were happily greeted by a young lady at check in. You can rent beach tags for 20 a person and you get the money back if... More
