Exactly what I expected - cheap, clean, comfortable room

The mattress could have been firmer. Otherwise, you get what you pay for, and I didn't pay much, which was the point.

clean room, friendly staff

we stayed one night with a bachelorette party. We spent little time in the room, and took cabs to and from casinos, as it was raining. If not, it was in walking distance. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. No frills, but u get what u pay for. I'd stay again.

A average ordinary hotel

For a HoJo its average, room was clean, staff was nice. If you are too nervous of any individual this location is not for you but I have seen worse (I was traveling alone) Not a whole lot of choices unless you stay at a casio. Location is close to the boardwalk -would stay there again.

Good price and location for a week end.

If you just need a place to rest your head and don't care about extra frills and want to be near the boardwalk then I recommend to stay here. Front desk staff were nice and helpful with directions. Neighborhood was quiet. The room was average and clean. Would of been nice to have a frig. Used a cooler. The price for a weekend stay was reasonable.

Not bad, for an older AC property

First the good: The staff is great, and very helpful. They offered to keep my bike locked up in the office, so I wouldn't have to lug it back and forth from my room. Although they were sold out of non-smoking rooms, staying in a smoking room really wasn't bad--there was no residual smell of cigarettes. The hotel is in a great spot, a block from the boardwalk, and with a jitney stop right outside. For your spiritual needs, there is a Catholic church across the street. Now for the bad: The place is starting to fall apart. The carpet in my room was torn, the remote for the TV was broken, the pool is microscopic, and the place generally needs to be remodeled. For what you are getting, it is overpriced, but no more so than all of Atlantic City--by AC standards, it's probably a bargain.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel has a very nice little diner, where they make a great tomato-and-feta omelet.

Weekend getaway on a budget.

While staying, we visited casinos, dined at a variety of restaurants, and shopped at the outlets. Free parking and wifi internet were pluses, as well as access to transportation. Jitney stop is located just outside the cafe doors. Convenient when bad weather prevents walking to attractions. The experience was comparable to other hotels in the same price range.

Take advantage of the cafe next to the lobby. Great place for breakfast after a long night. Serves breakfast all day. Open from 7 am to 4 pm.
