The only thing good about this hotel was the double bathroom sinks. The rest everything was grossed, a stain on the bedsheets, the DISGUSTING carpet you have to wear shoes or else the soles of your feet will turn black. Everything just need to be updated had to shower again at my house once I left the hotel. So gross never again.

Clean hotel with a friendly staff!

Right on the water and at the end of the boardwalk so it was a bit quieter. Construction and a wedding above us made it hard to sleep. Carpet was extremely dirty as was furniture in room. Staff was friendly.

Great location

Great atmosphere!!

Close to the beach Dislikes, patio door was broke and needs replacing, toilet leaked down and flushed every 5 minutes bathroom door was sticky and was hard to open all the way and several light bulbs were burned out in the bathroom. :(

Beachfront was a plus. The hotel had not been updated for forever and there are no amenities. No pool, no gym, no breakfast. I will not be staying there again.

Quiet and great location. The staff were super friendly. The latch to the balcony was broken and hard to open, but it was great to sit out on the balcony. Parking can be diffi ult since it is a small garage.

Every single staff member I encountered during my stay asked if I was enjoying myself and if I needed anything. Everyone was so pleasant, friendly, and accommodating. I will never stay anywhere at the beach but at this hotel. Best experience ever!

In need of "finishing details" - lots of details

It was quiet. Right on the beach walking distance to a lot

Amazing view from my balcony watching the dolphins and look at the sunrise and the sunset

It was nice and roomy will be back

Old hotel but right on the beach. It definitely needs updates but the staff were friendly and everything seemed clean. Couldn’t beat the price being right on the beach, but again, it definitely needs updating.

Very displeased. Great location however the shower had to be cleaned before use due to hair in it, bed was hard, found 2 bugs, carpet needed vacuuming, toilet ran all night, and no hot water in shower one morning. No ice, and all vending machines wouldn't accept any dollars. They didn't work. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. FIND ANOTHER PLACE. ( I never leave bad reviews, but very displeased)

The rooms were in horrible shape. I could barely shut my door without slamming it hard as can be. Every time I closed it rust came off the door and onto floor. The pictures were so deceiving, I would not recommend this place. Just to put into perspective how bad this room is I never leave reviews.

Our room was dirty and decor very outdated. Room smelled, door handle to balcony was broken. We only stayed one night as we found another hotel with availability to finish our vacation. We really didn't get to see much of the hotel as I spent most of the day unloading then repacking or on the phone trying to find another hotel. This hotel wasn't for us, maybe you get what you pay for? Others might not have such high standards for a hotel room as we do and are fine with the room. The staff was accommodating with our complaints and gave us a full refund for nights we cancelled with no cancellation fee which was helpful and appreciated.

Very clean, spacious rooms - we felt very confident in their policies regarding Covid distancing and cleaning. Great access to the North side of the boardwalk and included parking is very good for the area.

The location was perfect - right on the beach and boardwalk.
