    Poor customer service.

    My autistic brother stays at this hotel every August for 4 nights. He enjoys its close proximity to the boardwalk. I paid for his stay back in February so I assumed everything was good. The day of his arrival I received an email from the Forum stating that they were instituting an additional $15 a day fee for parking. I immediately called and paid the additional $60, early that morning, but when my brother arrived later that day the front desk told him it wasn’t yet paid. He texted me to inform me of the additional cost and I then contacted the hotel. A different person at the front desk told me their coworker failed to process the morning payment and he then did so immediately. My problem is that being my brother is autistic, minor problems can be enlarged out of proportion, something we can both live without. The Forum changed ownership/management maybe two years ago. Both of those years they failed to properly process my hotel payments. Because of this, my brother won’t be staying at this hotel in the future.

    Our stay at The Forum was fine, but I'm not sure the experience will be repeated. On the list of pros, the location could not be beat! We were able to park on-site (granted it's $15), go to the beach, come back and go back out for dinner. It is so close to the boardwalk. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. However, the facility was fairly old and it shows. The fixtures were original and not up-to-date. Little details like a bit of mold on some of the toiletries stood out to me. For the price we paid for one night, it reflected more of the location than the quality.

    The building is very old and really needs updating. There was only ONE outlet! And that was very inconvenient. It was as clean as it could be but due to age, we couldn't expect much more. The cleaning staff did a very good job. It was noisy out on the street, but inside the room it was very quiet. The front desk folks were very helpful.
