Honestly, this hotel was no better than a Motel 6. I can't honestly say that I recommend this to anyone or that I would return to this hotel. I also had asked for a King size bed and got two Full size beds. When I asked for a King they replied
that they had none available.
Nice hotel - beautiful view. A bit far from all other casinos and resorts. Not within walking distance. Would Deffinitely stay here again. Room was loaded with all one needs - kitchen supplies etc. The suite was huge. Staff was ok / not very
Picked this place because of the value of the hotel and the view that other have mentioned in their review. I was on the top floor (32nd). It was a great view and big room with living room. The elevators were not bad at all like some have
mentioned. i waited for ten minutes max once, every other time it wasn't bad at all.
Rooms are huge with good views. Every room has a balcony, this is a plus.
Facilities (lobby, hallway, rooms etc) are kept clean. Nothing crazy special or to worry about.
Elevators are ridiculously slow. These elevators are special, where you
press the floor you want to go to from the outside (no buttons inside the elevator). When you hit the floor that you want to go to, the screen will tell you which of the 4 elevators to take. Sounds fancy, but ridiculously slow and inconvenient. Expect ~10-15 min wait.
The hotel will charge you ~$8 for garage parking. Take it. I parked on the street nearby (there are plenty of free parking space), but the location is not the safest. Someone broke into my car overnight and stole my GPS (hidden in console) etc.
This is a great value hotel overall (cheaper than most hotels on the boardwalk). I highly recommend it if you are planning a trip with a group of friends.
Me and a couple of my friends stayed the weekend at this resort for my Birthday. I have nothing bad to say at all about this hotel.The room we had was very clean, great view of the ocean, friendly staff great location. Instead of driving we took
the jitney which saved us a lot of money. I'm thinking about getting a timeshare here. That's how much I loved my stay. Don't be scared off by some of the bad reviews like I almost was.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
If you plan on going to a buffet at one of the casino's, go right before dinner and pay lunch price. Dinner price was way to expensive.
I only spent one night -- a Saturday to attend a show, not gamble -- but my experience was distinctly average. Best feature by far: the view from the north side rooms. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the coastline made it almost worth the steep
price. Worst? The elevators. Waits so long we finally decided to walk down ten flights, and discovered we weren't the only ones as a parade of guests tromped down the stairs rather than waiting ten minutes or more. Yes, they claimed they were installing a new system, but if so, it's a loser. Other negatives: a lot of noise from nearby rooms and hallways, not one but two attempts to pitch us their time-share, a distinctly edgy neighborhood far from the casinos' action, and lastly, the absence of a boardwalk. That's right, the northern section of boardwalk was apparently destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Hopefully that will be corrected at some future point. Otherwise, the bathroom was clean, the beds comfortable, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful, despite being burdened with the handicap of a less than stellar property. At $100 or less per night, this is an okay lodging, as long as you're not expecting a real resort experience. At $300, not so much.
Awesome. The elevators r fixed now. So ur not waiting forever anymore. Very cozy. Great view. Full on kitchenette is great. a lil far away from casinos but its a positve no drunk kids n the hallways yelling. pleny o guards downstairs to prevent
