Beach access was nice and convenient, but the overall experience was dissapointing. The bathroom sink had a leak the first morning spent, we were in a hurry to get out the room to be at the zoo but had to be late once we found out about the leak, we had to pack up again and load the car in case we needed to be switched out of oyr room. The sink was fixed by the time we came back. Later that night, we killed a cockroach in the bathroom and chased another one around. The following morning we killed another 2 ..bathroom and room. We were paranoid and had to make sure when we packed we didn't bring anything home. The rooms and cleanliness was as best as it could be. I think asthetics need to be worked on. The sinks have rust the bathroom paint is peeling off and makes the bathroom look like a cheap motel bathroom. The website says theres pool "access" that means there's no pool on site.. you need to walk 2 blocks down the rd. Cross a street to get to their sister hotel were there's a pool. Overall not worth the money, I think this type of hotel and accomodations should run for cheaper. That way you're very clear of what you're getting yourself into.

Great location. 1/2 block to beach. No stand to hold luggage (used ironing board)

Near beach=great !!! A lot of paperwork needed to get simple things done, like parking, or extending stay. Not user friendly.

We had a great stay here for our anniversary. We were able to walk to the beach every morning for a wave check and my husband was able to have multiple surf sessions a day along the pier. Centrally located in PB, with updated and clean rooms. Had an added bonus of an extra refrigerator in our room so on our first day we stocked up at Ralph’s down the street. This is our second stay and we will stay here again next year.

Nice place overall but showed a few signs of wear. Weather seal on bottom of door was torn up and carpet in my room was dirty.

Like the location. Low cost for the area. Need better parking.

It was perfect for one night stay ! Kinda small but close to the beach and boardwalk.

This was a good place to just crash for the night but wouldn't stay here for a vacation or anything. The shower head was pretty rusty and gross looking but we paid about $79 for the room so you definitely get what you pay for. Pastries in the morning were actually really good and not the packaged kind.

proximity to the beach and restaurants. Clean ...

I liked that the hotel was close to the beach. We were able to walk there. It was clean. . I didn’t like the ultra thin walls. We heard our neighbors talking. It was so loud I woke up in the middle of the night. I also wish that when you see that there are 4 people in a room you give 4 sets of towels especially when they are staying 2 nights.

So close to the beach and reasonable price. Pretty room, comfortable.

We do apologize for the paperwork, and just to make certain everything is situated correct for your individual stay. Unfortunately, there is a real need to have these procedures, but they should be fairly fast.
