Business Meeting

The staff weret were friendly and accommodating. The room was fine, nothing fancy, but then I chose the lower rate. Location was great. I attended a conference at another hotell, it was very convenient. What I didn't get was the $20 meal coupon. Also, no one told me that there would be a $100 security deposit because I booked through your service.. I was not prepared for that. All in all, a good stay.

comfortable place to sleep

Unfortunately, you get the feeling the doors will close soon. The rooms are comfortable and the location and price are good. Travel elsewhere for food and entertainment.

Adequate at best

Hotel is in a great location on the boardwalk but the room need to be renovated and modernized. Mattress was old and lumpy, missing tiles and broken bath tub fixtures.
