The overall experience was great the staff were friendly and very helpful. When I was there to checkin I was before these guests but they went ahead of me it was not the staff’s fault but the guests and what I didnt like was the AC leaking water running down the wall, I thought rhe sink was overflowing upstairs. Everything else was good.

We liked being on the boardwalk, right in the action. We didnt like the the price was DOUBLED fron the usual June prices, for the air show.

A few friends and I stayed there for a couple of nights. The location was nice, a beautiful Oceanside view. We weren't expecting a 5 star experience, it was exactly what we needed. I would stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay. Room was clean and well stocked. Refrigerator was a perfect temp. Loved the private balcony. A bit small to share with my 2 kids but we weren't there to hang out in the room. Fit our needs perfectly. It's at the end of the boardwalk so it's nice & quiet. Will definitely stay there again when I come back.

Toilet clogged, but they fixed it promptly. In general, I didn't think the hotel provided the value I expect for the price.

We picked the hotel because of the location and thought there would be a certain level of expectations. The room was ready when we arrived just before 3pm check in time. The front desk staff were nice. We get to the room and started to unpack and saw several room flaws. The drapes were broken not closing all the way. We had to come up with our system to keep them completely drawn. The carpet was badly stained throughout the room. One day during our stay it was pSt 4pm and the room had not been cleaned. Once we called the front desk someone came, made the bed and replaced the towels but the room especially the bathroom was untouched. Would not stay here again.

Had a very nice view. Room was clean and was a giid size. The only thing is check in is so late at 3pm and check out is too early at 11 am. We pretty muvh only stayed 8 hrs. Would be nice to have at least 12 hrs gor an overnight stay. The bathroom door was not opening wide enough. It gets stuck and you really jave to push it hard to open.

Our family stayed on the 3rd floor, and had a great experience. The housekeeping staff was very accomodating and did a great job. The rooms had just what we needed for our stay, and the location was ideal

Took my grandson on a mini vacation. Started poorly being unable to gain entry to room. After the second trip back down to the lobby, leaving all of our belongings, and telling the gentleman at the front desk that it was the door, not the key, he sent me back once again with a third set of keys. The manager from the nearby Days Inn came over to try to help since maintainence was not available. She tried to help by changing the batteries in the door. No luck. Turns out, there was already someone staying in that room and they had the door locked. I was given a different room. There was hair on the shelf in the bathroom and the carpet was so dirty that our feet were literally black soon after batheing. Ashtrays were positioned right at the elevator door were little hands could touch them when reaching for the elevator buttons and the same cigarette butt was on the floor in the elevator our entire trip.

Terrible check-in and rooms called Oceanview are not that. Also, the booking site says you get free breakfast daily but the hotel says that the booking site is mistaken. Just OK Hotel... nothing special except its on the boardwalk.

The room was what I saw on the sight and was worth money. We enjoyed the trip

Our experience at this hotel, was great. Front desk allowed us to park the car, change into Beach attire and check in 2 hours early! VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE

great location with a wonderful view. We were off season so many places were closed. If we go back we woul stay there again.

Nice Location.... Right at the board walk. Nice balcony.

The curtain was down when we walked in, had to call maintenance. One of our keys did not work. A smelly microwave with a burned substance had to be removed from the room. The elevator was filthy, all the outside glass needs to be cleaned. The coffee shop has great breakfasts, but the service is terrible. We kept losing Internet service; had to keep entering ID and password. There are much better values on the boardwalk for the same price.

Nothing special, nothing to really complain about. Room is OK, bathroom is small, everything is mostly out dated.

The staff was fairly friendly. The room we received wasn't what I expected, and the staff didn't even try to go out of their way to accommodate me. Basically, sorry that's too bad, nothing we can do. The room was ok. Smelled kinda dingy,the carpet felt sticky, sheets were clean. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was brand new and clean. Overall the walls and paint needed to be updated and cleaned. The place looked a bit outdated and old. Room service was ok, but we decided to skip on the daily room cleaning. Just personal preference. The pool out side looked clean, we didn't partake though. Hotel location was right on the boardwalk which is always nice. Elevator was very dirty and very slow moving. Overall a two out of five stars. Definitely needs some TLC on multiple levels.
