Overniter near A.C.

The hotel was old and needed work. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were lacking. I will say the shower had good water pressure. Overall it was ok. Will not stay there again. The rear door was unlocked all night and when we walked to the room we could hear other people talking. Didn't feel especially safe there.

Reasonable price, not too far from Convention center and casino. Bus service is available in front.

I would recomment this hotel for those who do not want to spent so much money and stay too close to casino. Bus fare is only $2.10 and takes 10 minutes to every casino. Rooms are clean and service is reasonable.

Disappointing

Going to a concert in AC so decided to book a room here for my daughter and her friends and one for myself since it was geographically convenient. First off, we were given the key to an already occupied room and my daughter mistakenly opened the door without being aware guests were already in there. When we returned from the concert around 1am, guests in the next area over (not sure if it was a conference room or a banquet room) were having an extremely loud party. We were told by management it would be over by 2:30 am. At 1:45am we received a call from the front desk asking if we wanted to change rooms. As we were already in bed and all of our stuff was in our room already, we did not. Needless to say this party got louder throughout the night and didn't end until well after 3:30am! I can overlook shoddy service but this was unacceptable. Will NEVER stay here again.

Cheap Stay

It was a low cost alternative. Room was very average. Grounds were overrun with weeds. Staff was friendly. Very easy to get to broadwalk for hotel. Again a very average hotel at a low cost.

Totally worth it

Since I'm only 19 I couldn't do much, but it was closer enough to the beach that it wasn't a problem, I just wish the breakfast had eggs and some breakfast meat

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

There was parking at the beach, but if you want to be nearer to the mall and the more populated area, you might want to look for a closer parking spot.

Not impressed

The front desk clerk was very rude. He put us in a room by the backdoor, which people walked in and out constantly. The door would just slam shut every 2 minutes. We asked to be moved to a different room, and were told that there were no rooms with king sized beds available. So we settled for 2 smaller beds. The service was not good, and we will never go back. Very disappointing.

One and Done

The hotel is in a fairly decent location, just several miles from AC. It was bought by Howard Johnson about 4 months ago (mid 2012), and they are haven't really changed anything over yet. Even the sign is still sitting there. One of the major problems I had is the place isn't clean at all, and smells pretty bad. Shower head was terrible, room was so/so, and you will NOT want to take advantage of their Breakfast. The waffle maker had all kinds burned stuff on it - was pretty sickening. When I said something, they blamed customers who sprayed too much PAM on it, and failed to acknowledged that it hadn't been cleaned in years. I literally looked like a BBQ that hadn't been cleaned in years - I'm sure the health department would love to have a look at it - turned my stomach so I checked out. As far as the hotel itself, I didn't feel all that safe, and to be honest, would not take my family there.
