We will stay across the street next time

The location is perfect for access to the boardwalk and downtown. The room was "clean" but well used. We considered going out and buying our own pillows if that gives you an idea. There is another Super 8 across the street and Comfort Inn we will pick one of those next time because their upkeep is obviously much better.

Convenient location

Pros: Clean and convenient location (5-7 min walk to Boardwalk entrance). Cons: Clogged sink and hard beds. Bring your own pillow and that might help you sleep a tiny bit better and some aspirin or ibuprofen for your back the morning after!

Great place to stop

Traveling with a group on a budget, it was very difficult to find a reasonably priced room anywhere in this area that received decent reviews and did not make me concerned that I would be bitten by bed bugs or woken up by trains in the night... This Super 8, however, met the expectations set by its positive reviews. The staff was kind and professional, the room was spacious and clean, and the breakfast was great (as long as you don't mind taking it to go). Overall, it's a great value, and I would definitely go back.

Good price

If you're just looking for a place to stay without an fancy expectations then this is the place. It's conveniently located near the Boardwalk and downtown. Both are about a 10 min walk.

Last minute getaway

My boyfriend and I traveled during the busy summer season and found this hotel. It is extremely clean and a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk. It isn't the most modern place but it did the trick and was really clean.

Great location, great price

Room was clean, and for the price, that was enough for me. You can't beat the location. The staff was very nice.

Nothing fancy, but was CLEAN & close to the Boardwalk

We had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. Nothing fancy, but it was CLEAN with NO bad odors. We were able to get the bottom floor so that we could house our bicycles safely at night. We will definitely return.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Our favorite restaurant was called IDEAL. Located ideally at the corner of Boardwalk street and entry onto the wharf. Great food, great music, great atmosphere. We sat outside where they had giant heat lamps to keep us warm and toasty yet able to hear the ocean. A+ rating from us.

Boardwalk fun

The location was amazing. Just two blocks to the boardwalk (which was a lot of fun). The room was mediocre (at best). Old and dated, but it was clean and there was no evidence of bugs. The breakfast was a joke. There was coffee and bread with a toaster.

Good location and affordable

Perfectly located at just a block and a half from the Beach Boardwalk allowing you to leave your car in the free onsite parking. The rooms are small and basic but clean and the walls are a little thin. The breakfast is just toast and cereal available from reception and there was no fridge or microwave in my room. THere is a small pool and though I didn't use it there were several families who seemed to be enjoying it tremendously. Overall it suited me to a tee and I consider it good value form money. I would certainly stay here again.
