      • Great view from room, very nice hotel and barely worth the cheap rate. The staff were friendly and beds were clean.

        This place was nasty and i will never stay there again, also the elevator floors stayed wet due to people coming back from the beach and pool. Water pressure was incredibly low.

      • The location was great, the hotel was right on the beach and the view was amazing, half of the staff were very friendly. The room size was good.

        This place was nasty and definitely not worth the price I was charged. The bathroom was dirty and the pool was small and right in front of the bar onlookers was a bit awkward.

      • Train everyone to clean and wonderful oceanfront view. For budget limited travelers and great rate. Free coffee in lobby, rude staff and our bed was new and very comfortable.

        The hotel is old and the bathrooms get worse.

      • The view was great, the hotel staff were very nice and helpful, room was good size bathroom was also.

        Location is not clear at check in and well never stay at that mess hole ever again. The bar downstairs is really loud, the owner needs 1 thing to correct all the bad press and reviews.

      • The location is great and beach in March/April is wonderful because of the lack of crowds. For the same price one can find a much better place.

        Not a comfortable situation at all, worst hotel ever and once reported to front desk all connections were restored. The bathroom was pretty decent and also a lamp was broken. The hallways and elevators were dirty, the sofa was very worn and everything smelled musty. Facility not kept up.

      • The location was great and the Beach was beautiful. Price was lower than other hotels next to boardwalk and the staff were good. Room was very nice and elevator was hot and smelled of urine.

        Pool area needs new chairs and horrible nasty place. Not worth the money and lobby floor stayed filthy. The lady at the front desk was not friendly at all and the employees were unhelpful an rude.

      • The location was good and the beach access was convenient for us, as the stores across the street. The hotel staff were friendly, the price was adequate and the room was newly remoded as well as the lobby. Ocean was great from the balcony and the service was fine. The bathroom was all very clean except for the toilet seat that had some stains on and the towels were always available.

        Public areas look tired and after a 10 hour drive in a cramped 2 door car. Just because a place is old doesn't mean has to be dirty and the bed is too soft. Elevators are slow and unreliable, loud music till 2AM. The employees are lazy.

      • Very good price for ocean view and overall, not a bad place at all. Great service and bathroom adequate.

        Staff were not very friendly in my opinion, in the other room the brown blanket was dirty had white stains all over.
