Do not book a reservation for this hotel online - if you have to cancel for whatever reason they charge you no matter what. That is great customer service huh

This hotel rooms are smaller than the photos. A jail cell had more space and the beds are full beds so me and my husband was uncomfortable sleeping. WiFi doesn’t work. Bathroom is smaller than a closet. The parking lot is tiny so if you have an SUV, your car is not fitting and you will have to worry about someone hitting your car. Remember to get your receipt for your room key deposit. They didn’t want to give me my deposit back because they never gave me a receipt. However I got lucky and dealt with the person who checked me in. Also no privacy, if you do not put the do not disturb out on the door, staff will just walk in your room. They did it twice even with the do not disturb sign. Walls are thin so be prepared to hear kids running around of the room next to you having sex

The manager Mike was awesome. Other then that, this hotel is out dated and pretty disgusting. We had blood on the walls, slugs crawling around in the bathroom. NO water pressure in shower. It was just a trickle of water. I am not a picky person and didnt expect it to be the Hilton but they have lots of work that need to be done. The location of this hotel and the staff is the best thing they have going.

The room was not really clean when we got in. There was a bit of sand on the bed and floor. When I entered the bathroom, the shower curtain was stained with something. The WiFi never worked the whole time we were there. The room was small but it was very well air conditioned. It was nice to come into a very cold room after being in the sun/heat.

the hotel was horrible as soon as you walked in there was a foul odor, after lookin around you saw it was from the mold on the back of the bathroom door and on the baseboards leading out o bathroom. Behind the bed there was one towel in the room. You could feel springs through the mattress and there was a beer left in the fridge from previous guest. We had to buy lysol to treat the mold to be able to breathe. There was someone who said he lived there bumming cigarettes and asking for jump starts for his motorcycle. They never made beds or changed sheets. There was a pile of dirty linens outside our room the entire stay. The door to the room seemed very unsafe and had to be slammed to close all the way. Picture of the room on the web site is very photoshopped in my opinion. This could be a nice hotel with a little TLC.

This hotel is literally across the street from the beach and boardwalk. If you're wanting a close, but cheap place, you found it. When I arrived, there was a "Be back in 5 minutes" sign on the door. 30 minutes later, it was still there, so we had lunch and about 2 hours later there was finally someone available. If you want to check-in early, it's $10/hour for every hour early, you have to give them a $20 bill to get an actual key to your room & you get it back when you check-out, there isn't an ice machine, and there were empty alcohol containers and dirty diapers in the parking lot. The facility isn't much, but Alex and Jess that work there were super kind and did their best to help us with all of our questions, so good customer services makes up for all the other things.

The room was very hot when we went in because the AC was not on. It felt humid and moist inside and didn't have a clean feeling. The pillows had a weird stench, which I hated because I had to put my face on it. It felt like the sheets and pillow covers were not cleaned well because they had small stains on them. Overall, the room was really tight and nothing like the pictures online. I do not recommend anyone stay here if they're expecting a nice hotel room. The one good thing was the distance to the boardwalk, and the price wasn't too bad. However, I feel like they did not do the basic necessities.

Toilet not bolted to ground, sand all over the bed, dead cochroach behind the dresser. I will never go to that hotel ever again.

would recommend for young people looking for a room for a few nights, small but clean and comfortable

Thank you for your feedback. You are correct with what you convey and that is exactly why we hired Mike a couple weeks ago. He is quickly turning things around and we hope you give us another shot once he's completed his mission.
