Great place for a getaway!

Clean rooms, friendly staff, perfect location and on-site parking - would recommend this hotel. The only nitpick I have is the quality of the breakfast - it was mediocre, with not much variety. The coffee (both in the lobby and in the restaurant) is weak and watery as well. Other than those comments, though, this is a well-run and maintained hotel.

Friendly staff, family friendly

Overall I'd give this hotel a good rating. It is an older Hotel so don't look for new like you would get in the newer hotels. The staff however was great, very friendly and helpful. The rooms have everything you need, iron & board, (although not a lot of room for it), blow dryer, and the balcony was very nice with the ocean view. The cleaning crew did a good job and got in and out without getting in our way. The rooms could use a little updating as the coverings for the bed need to be replaced, drawers to the dresser would fall out instead of slide out, and the air conditioner never worked for us. But it was nice outside in early May so that did not hinder our enjoyment.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The boardwalk was just outside the door! Shopping and dining within walking distance. Carnival within walking distance. No need for using a vehicle until you leave or have other plans. That was the best part.

cheap for being on the beach

I've stayed at several different locations that have ocean front view. This hotel was a pretty good value for the location. It's right now to the Pier which seems to be a tourist location! I went during the off season and the hotel didn't have any of the restruants/lounges open; however there is a Pancake house right across the street that was really good!! If you stay at this hotel def try the Pancake house. The room reminded me of staying in a local motel and not a hotel. The doors, flooring, and tiling needs to be updated. However unless you stay at one of the newer hotels, this seems to be consistant across. Enjoy your stay!
