We booked the double bed room and it was very disappointing to say the least. All the rooms are on the third floor there are no elevators stairway is very narrow space is not clean. The sink is next to one of the beds and the bathroom consists of the toilet and shower. The carpet looks very filthy in the room.

Room was filthy. Sheets where dirty blankets were ripped and outdated. Door knob was lose. Bugs inside window. Front desk staff was best part of stay they were both very pleasant even when I complained

Close to the boardwalk. We stayed on 3rd floor, which was the single rooms, and it was difficult to go up and down without an elevator.

The pools were located two blocks away (and closed AT dark). The rooms are outdated and the building is all but falling apart. The water pressure would completely shut off, at some points while showering. Parking was TERRIBLE - non-permitted vehicles ransacked the site and were not removed. The ENTIRE building advertises non-smoking; but REEKED of marijuana CONSTANTLY. There were fights in the halls and out in the parking lots, every evening (one that woke my daughter and I at 2 in the morning - which didn't end for what felt like forever). It was TERRIBLE and we will NEVER stay here again, nor recommend it - EVER.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed I stay and rates...just wished they offered complimentary breakfast

The first time I got in the room, the floor still had chips and papers on it. Bad customer service. They said no soap was left in the hotel and getting towels was problem. Ants in room all in my food and on the bed. Ants even in the fridge. I will never go back to this hotel in my life

The stairway from 2nd to 3rd floor are so small, it is very hard for one person with a bag to fit through alone. The doorways are about 2.5 ft wide max. Mind you, all of us are below middum built. Don't get me starting with the bathroom...

Very nice location. Only a couple blocks away from the beach.

Close to the beach. Thought it was a full kitchen only 2 burner stove top. No utensils and toaster didn't work.

The hotel is 2 short blocks away from the boardwalk which was convenient and good. Some issues in the room were like the clogged sink, the clogged bathtub, the sinking mattresses, no covers on the wall plugs, the dead light bulbs. We spent the days out and just went back to the room at night to sleep so overall it was a good vacation at the beach!

No hot water for 3 days... could not sleep at night people up partying all night...not very clean.

I got this hotel for the sole reason of it was the cheapest one in walking distance of the boardwalk. I’ll just warn anyone that YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU PAY FOR. This is a cheap hotel for a reason so go into this knowing you are not getting quality. If you don’t mind a dirty room with some things that don’t work, then this is a fine place. However if you require a very nice living place, go elsewhere. Overall, my experience here was fine, even though one drawer was broken, the AC was a huge thing on the floor that took up a lot of space, the shower was pretty unclean, and the layout was inefficient. I was able to tolerate the bad quality because I really just needed a place to sleep for the weekend fri-Mon.

Nice location. Nice fridge and air conditioner Hard to move around. Beds need replaced. Had to bring luggage up 3 flights of stairs. Shower temp either hot or cold. But decent price for one block away

This place looks as if a strong wind gust will topple it over. The steps are wooden, rotted, and water damage and frequent flooding is evident. No phones in room. No irons. Clean linens and towels are given out from a black trash bag that is dragged down the hallways by the staff. But hey, there is bed. If all you need is a place to lay your head then it will do.

You get what you pay for. It's cheap. It's a block from the beach and the boardwalk. It comes with a parking spot. It was quiet. There was no remote to the TV in the room. The front desk girl gave us one but it didn't work so our TV was stuck on the History channel. Tiny bathroom with no water pressure. Beds were fine. I'd stay again for the price.

You get what you pay for. Hotel is obv older... Needs paint and stuff. Typical beach motel. Has everything we needed. Good AC in the room, cable, clean towels, and nice firm beds. Front desk was friendly. Cheap, close to beach (2 blocks walk), and free hotel parking.

It was alright for the price very friendly kinda outdated

This place is over priced. I was like the roach motel. Ants in rooms. Frig did not shut, shower had caulk peeling off
