Recent guest reviews

3 day getaway. Great location. Nice clean room. Jetted run very comfortable.. ice machine down in bldg 2. Had to go to other bldg.. fixed before my checkout. 20 mins from boardwalk. Had a great time. Will and already looking forward to come,again.

It was a great experience staying here. We will be back again!!

My husband and I have been coming here for a while and we love it. It's about 15 minutes from A.C. It's very close to shopping and restaurants. Great friendly staff and clean rooms!

The hotel smelled and there were stains on the sheets. It wasn't worth the money we spent. They didn't have enough towels either

Hotel needs a update/remodel to bring it into the 2010's super dated, smelled bad, needed AC Units in Lobby and Hallways, I won't stay at this HOJO again terrible. The staff was nice though

This is a great hotel. Friendly and pleasant staff. Very clean and quiet!

Slightly shabby hotel that exemplifies the adage you get what you pay for. Inexpensive and rightly so. Nothing drastic but so many little things that were wrong or just off. 1) Front desk clerk incompetent, had trouble with the computer, took us ten minutes to get checked in. Asked if we were OK with second floor (we said yes) then gave us a first floor room (room number started with a 2) so we went upstairs looking for the room. Also told us the room number loudly with other people in the lobby (typically hotels will just tell you the room number is on the folder the key is in for security and privacy reasons). Generally unprofessional overall. 2) Door to room wouldn't close on its own. 3) Door to the hotel building where the room is wouldn't open, cut my hand trying to force it. 4) Exterior light outside the other hotel building (where we went to try to find our lost second floor room) had bulb burned out, quite dark. 5) Hotel advertised continental breakfast. Not sure what continent it was on but if it was North America it was in another location, not this hotel, which still had not opened the lobby when we left, much less set up a breakfast. 5A) With office closed one would have expected a drop off box or something for the room key(s). One would have been wrong. Drove back to the room to leave the keys there. 6) Parking lot and access thereto in severe need of paving repair. On the plus side, the TV and remote actually functioned, the toilet flushed, and the beds had no apparent infestation of insect life.

OK place to stay if on a budget & you can't find anywhere else to stay close to AC. Wouldn't stay there again.

For a hotel near atlantic city it has a great price and the location is close to all attractions. Enjoyed my stay. Room clean and comfortable.

This Hotel was average. Nothing spectacular, def. clean! About 10-15 mins. drive from AC. Not too bad...

The hotel was fine. The issue we had was there was no one manning the front desk. We had to wait 15 mins after 2 phone calls to check in. Then when they deactivated both of our keys, another 10 mins for someone to answer the phone to be able to get into the room. But the room was fine.

My stay was great. Not the biggest or best hotel but can't beat the value. The room was clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.

One of the reasons we chose this lodging was because it offered Wi-Fi and the room they gave us was not in the building that the wi-fi was available. We had to ask for more towels as they only provided 2 in the room. the coffee maker wasn't clean and there were no coffee cups to drink the coffee from. We found the door to our room open and unsecured after the maid service had been in. They came to fix the door when we complained but it was not a good feeling to be so vulnerable. The breakfast area in the "lobby" was not air conditioned and was sweltering hot. The machines for dispensing juices was very dirty. The ice machine wouldn't work, the place just in general needed attention.

Hotel is very far from boardwalk I didn't even check in at all I left cuz I didn't like the hotel

My door was open when I got to my room. A foul odor permeated the entire building. The bathroom ceiling was stained and the fan was hanging out of the ceiling. In the hallway there were electric cords hanging down from the ceiling, there was a dirty microwave oven plugged in, on the floor and it smelled awful. When I checked in the person was nice and when I requested a rollaway it was delivered within 10 minutes. The person who delivered it asked if I could pay for the rollaway in cash. Overall the experience was gross.

The "non-smoking" room was clean, however, it smelled like a smoking room. The bathroom was clean, however, no toothpaste and shower cap. The towels and linen were clean and fresh. Overall, not a bad hotel for a one night stay, but definitely needs to improve.

hotel allows pot to be smoked in rooms. Says can not controll what they do behind close doors. But if you go up to the room you can smell which room the pot is in. So they wouldn't do anything about it and also was suppose to be in a Room Description 2 Double beds non smoking room with free continental breakfast and free --nd2--wi-fi - Special Requests Non-smoking said they couldn't help my pregnant daughter with a non-smoking room wouldn't refund money we drove down from PA told her not to go back to room unsafe

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. We notified the police because of the a sitution the hotel would not help with regarding the welfare of my young pregnant daughter. We had to drive to AC to help her since owner of hotel would not. They allow Pot to be smoked in there rooms, comment from owner nothing he can do behind close door even though you can smell which rooms it was coming out of. The police will be watching this hotel.

Great price for great service. Upon entering you're greeted with a friendly host, escorted to your room where you are surround with comfort. Great getaway for a couple.

Short ride to Atlantic City. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom could use better cleaning.
