The property had a nice view of the beach but, unfortunately, that is the only complement that can be given. The facilities were extremely rundown and sketchy. The staff and amenities were less than adequate. The parking was off site and appeared like an abandoned lot. It was an experience to remember but not in a good way.

This property was disgusting and covered in mold from a flood. There was no remote no phone and the sheets were covered in semen and mold. I’m not even kidding I have pics that I hope you let me post.

We had a great trip! You get exactly what you pay for so i didn't have any over the top expectations like some. The only complaint was it took me 3 days to get a second towel and there were 2 of us I literally asked from the moment of check in (before I had a specfic room) until the last night. The staff is overall very nice and friendly I didn't notice alot of what i read in the reviews which im very greatful for since my child is 5. I can tell you I would definitely stay again! Great views nice people a bed fridge and tub you get what you pay for if you have "high" expectations thats fine we are all different but this wouldn't ve the spot however if your more of a beach bum and not picky this place is perfect i have OCD and lasted from monday to friday without the first thought of leaving so for those who ended up in the car well thats a little dramatic

Very close to 2nd Ave Pier. And right on the boardwalk.

The room were okay would stay again if I had to . it was right next to the beach. You could walk right out to it.

Room small like death animals inside roaches all over on the wall and shelling.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! This old Hotel is Infested with BED BUGS and COCKROACHES did not believe it until I saw it and had to go to another hotel. Horrible experience!!!!!!

The only thing I can say is that it is on the beach for great convenience! The rest was deplorable. To start, I didn't believe the reviews, I thought they were just being picky. WRONG! The parking was 2 blocks away, the room we got was on the fourth floor, no elevator, I was with a child! The people would hang in front of our room- mind you we were at the end of the hallway- all hours of the day and night. The place was run down, BAD, so bad, I was afraid to lay in the beds, take a shower, or even set anything down. I kept all of my things packed and pulled out as needed! We layed on our towels we brought ourselves and placed our car air fresheners in the vents of the A.C. it was so terrible smelling. My grand daughter wanted to swim in the pool but I wouldn't let her! The grounds and hotel were absolutely terrible. We ended up leaving after one night even though we paid for two. This hotel was less expensive than most, however, I think the price we paid should have been cut in thirds or quarters for the condition the place was in. My suggestion to travelers- DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! Pay the higher amount the reviews are accurate!!!!

Let's start by trying to check in when they don't have hotel parking(it is 3 blocks away) was a nightmare. We had to literally kick the office door open and jerk it shut when we left. Hotel is severely run down and very old fixtures and furniture in rooms. We were even supplied with a chair outside door to sit(handicap shower chair) room was clean to first view until we moved the dresser and nightstand to plug lights back in, and those areas appeared to not have been cleaned since Raegan was president. Place also appears to maybe rent long term rooms to people who were drinking and loud most of the time we were there. I have stayed in some cheap and old hotels and motels, but this one had to be the worst I have ever seen. People and staff seemed nice and that was my one plus for the stay. I also noticed as they were cleaning rooms around ours, they were only changing sheets and leaving blankets from previous guest on the beds, I wish I had brought blankets from home as we took ours off and slept with just the sheets. Toilet had a huge rusted bolt and washer holding seat on, shower time was dated and busted (covered with caulk) age stains in tub and sink,microwave looked as though it was found in trash and put in room. I will not be staying here again.

Even though we booked a non smoking room ,they gave us a smoking room

The beach was like 100ft from our room. The hotel has an outside shower to rinse off and a nice pool.

This hotel makes the Bates Motel look good. The only improvement it needs is demolition !

Cons: Arrived and room not available. Booked king got double beds. No elevator. a/c not adequate to cool room. Shower either scalding hot or freezing cold - nothing in between. Wifi not working. Parking for hotel is 2 blocks away. Pro: on the beach. Pool clean. No extra bs fees like other hotels. Central located to beach activities - walking distance.

ROOM outdated, STINK, nasty, no iron in room, got a stove no pots or pans, bed was dirty, had to go buy my own sheets n blanket, had to burn candles

HAD bed bugs in bed, room STINK, outdated, toilet wasn't clean, seen a roach, staff was great

The ceiling in the bath room was falling down. The bed sheets had not been changed.There was hair on the pillow cases and sheets and the sheets were dirty.The carpet was wet because the air conditioner had frozen and leaked water on the carpet. The kitchen was filthy. No dishes or forks , spoons, or knives. The was dirty mop left in the room when we checked in.

I woke up to bite marks all over and bugs crawling on my bed. When I asked, on what occasion are refunds given, the answer I was given was "we don't."

The room was dirty when I got their had to leave for three hrs for them to clean and still was not cleaned the room looked like it had white power on the counters and bathroom trash every where dirty towels all over the room beds not made clean

Great balcony onto beach, clean linen, good wifi. The rest was a little sub par, but the price more than made up for it!

run down, ocean front hotel.

Everyone

Let's start by trying to check in when they don't have hotel parking(it is 3 blocks away) was a nightmare. We had to literally kick the office door open and jerk it shut when we left. Hotel is severely run down and very old fixtures and furniture in rooms. We were even supplied with a chair outside door to sit(handicap shower chair) room was clean to first view until we moved the dresser and nightstand to plug lights back in, and those areas appeared to not have been cleaned since Raegan was president. Place also appears to maybe rent long term rooms to people who were drinking and loud most of the time we were there. I have stayed in some cheap and old hotels and motels, but this one had to be the worst I have ever seen. People and staff seemed nice and that was my one plus for the stay.
