      Location considering.

      The smell was old, dank and musty... the hotel has a lot of potential but truly needs a face lift. I am a time share owner and know accommodations. The place was comfortable for a weekend stay. I would have problems with a weeks stay...needs new or updated furniture and the smell was bad but for the price what do you expect.

      The bad smell in the hotel was a bit strong. Needs to be improved.The breakfast continental was not good either, it was too cheap/small for the price we pay.

Also I was to have king bed which we never got

      Very Quiet. Comfortable bed. Well equipped exercise room. Beach is a very short drive down the road. A short drive to the casinos.

      Continental breakfast was just choice of 2 small danish or 2 small muffins and coffee. Other hotels have fruit or cereal included in a continental breakfast.

      The quietness, nice large room, nice pool deck, location very close to the casinos.

      Certain front desk staff, not very friendly.

      The room was clean.

      The elevator was broken and they didn't tell us they were having a LOUD party that you could hear on the second floor until around 1:30am. It was not good.

      The price and the friendly staff.

      The parking for the guests is around the side and back of the building and is not very lit. The room temperature was very hard to maintain a consistent temperature. The second night we stayed there, we paid more for that night and we had no parking. There was an event occuring and all the guests for the event were taking up all the parking spots and parked illegally, making it difficult to "squeeze" through to spots. Once inside our room, we could still hear the bass from the music that was being played. Our room also had a constant musty smell to it. This location is not in an ideal location for a family and seems a little rough.

      Staff, room, grounds, nor towel/linen. Well dingy property!!! Tried getting directions from staff who had me on hold for over 12 minutes then returned to asked me what I was calling about then put me on hold again and never came back. Had to get directions from Howard Johnson inn in Atlantic city. When I got to the location I booked, I vented my frustration and was told that they were changing shifts!!! Not good and would not stay nor recommend to anyone again.

      Despite the reviews very nice, upon arrival strong musty/cigarette smell but it was removed by our return later the same night....very nice room, great price and truly only about 5-10 minutes from the boardwalk, will return (admittedly we slept through the offered continental breakfast)...they were very generous with a late check-out which made departure all the more relaxing

      Almost missed the place as the sign is new (a banner over the original sign, not all that visible at night) other wise a great stay!

      The damp air smell of the hotel's hall way; air conditioner really noisy, couldn't sleep; and the shower in our room hord to turn on and off. The most dislike thing is NO wiifi at all in our rooms, and I heard another guest complain about it too.

      The hotel and grounds are generally in a rundown state. The room was ok. They cancelled the continental breakfast and instead offered a small discount for the restaurant but had not updated their website with this fact.. so we had to fork out $30 for breakfast in addition to $170 for a room.

      Clearly this is a property in transition - new owners with the correct priorities: while the hallways and loby still have a long way to go, the room which was updated, clean, comfortable. Strong wifi connection. Excellent front dest service.
