We really enjoyed the hotel. We checked in the first day of March and the really nice thing was it was a slow period for the hotel. I was very quiet (inside the hotel and the Boardwalk. Some people may like "crowds", but we value a nice quiet relaxing atmosphere. The room was comfortable and the view was great. Even...

The motel was very nice and decor was great. While there are older couples visiting the fabulous restaurants, the motel itself had so many children running up and down the halls hollering and slamming doors. Not conducive to sleep much less nice romantic evening for couples. Albeit it is a pleasure park with rides, my suggestion is to ask for...

I've stayed here in the past and always had a great experience. This check in was different. The room was not what I had requested. I had to request a different room. There were bits of what looked like Dorito chips on the floor by the nightstand.

Location of the hotel is fantastic.... everything is in walking distance from the hotel. We were extremely disappointed in the hotel. We paid extra to have strawberry's and champagne delivered at the time of arrival ($75) and there were not there at check-in. I had to call to ask about them and was told they were running behind. We also...

We enjoyed 3 nights at the Boardwalk. The rooms were very clean. Staff was very helpful, giving us extra coffee and water. Rooms were freshly painted and bathroom was gorgeous with a large lit mirror.

The entire staff at boardwalk inn on February 19th and 20th were great. From the moment we arrived we felt as though we were being cared for at the nothing was being left to chance regarding our experience. The best thing about it was the feeling that the staff wasn't new to providing an exceptional experience.

Staff were not friendly or much help, except for the multiple calls and emails prior to our arrival wanting to know our eta, which didn't matter or help anyway as we had to wait 2 hours for the room to be ready once we got there.
