Pretty Good

The location can't be beat! Right on the beach near restaurants and shops. Rooms need updating for the $200++ rate charged though. Nice Bath and Body Amenities.

older building

Overall it was an enjoyable stay, because this is the better end of the sea front. Rooms have not been renovated for decades. Not up to standard of Marriott or Hilton.

Big Disappointment

Very disappointing. The hotel is very dated and in desperate need of upgrading. Our air conditioning would not get cold. We were sweating every night. Mold in bathroom, holes in our sheets. The windows have never seen a bottle of windex or paper towels. The bed was uncomfortable and the living room furniture needed to be replaced. The whole place felt dirty. The only positive is that it's oceanfront. Also, I'm not a smoker, but if you smoke you definitely don't want to stay here. The entire hotel is smoke-free, including the balconies. If they catch you smoking you pay a $250 fine. Housekeeping was a joke. All they did was replace bathroom towels. No cleaning. They need to call Gordon Ramsey ASAP!!! We will never come back here.

great vacation

We have been here on a timeshare and this time as a hotel guest. This time our bikes were stolen from the front bike rack. They were locked up. We put in an incident report and the front desk said they recommend putting your bikes in your room. There are no signs recommending that, just a sign stating they are not responsible for theft or damage to bikes. We never heard another word about our incident report.

Weekend getaway

The hotel had an exit from the lobby right to the boardwalk, which was really nice. The room was average. There was a living area and balcony. The elevators were small, which required us to wait sometimes.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel provides a coupon book for local dining and a card that we scanned to see what activities were happening on the boardwalk.

Left early...terrible beds

The bed was terrible and caused us both back and shoulder pain. This has never happended at any other hotel. We checked out a day early because of this. We had prepaid our stay through an online travel servic (O...tz) so we are out over $200 and not happy about it.
