    I like it had multiple rooms for a low price. But the manager was very rude. Had me waiting in lobby for over 15 minutes. Than when he finally came to help me asked me to wait a little longer while he go wash his hands. Also was talking on his cell phone while assisting me. Than while I was unpacking he came out smoking and watched me unpack the entire time very creepy. So happy when we checked out.

  • 8.0.Very good

    What I like about this property is that it is reasonably cost and not too far of a walk to the boardwalk. Having 3 rooms was helpful as well for my family to enjoy the weekend. Cons: was not stocked with any toiletries, the phone is the room was hidden behind the tv and did not work. Also the neighbors above us had kids that kept running and jumping in the room non stop. Finally went to the front desk to tell them after 10pm. No elevator to the second floor so keep that in mind if you are handicap and have trouble climbing stairs. I luckily got the last downstairs room upon checking in because I told desk that I cannot really due stairs due to my health. But overall, I usually always stay here when visiting to save costs and the third bedroom is a plus. It’s nothing fancy as it is an older hotel, but that doesn’t bother me.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Where to begin?? Upon greeting I was told our Heat/Air was not working and placed space heaters in our room but were told they could only be plugged at a certain place or risk power outage. Mind Space Heater?? We have children in the room. There was no sleeping the walls were thin as paper and my children had to hear conversations about Mollies amongst other things. Over all I felt highly unsafe and dissatisfied. Will not be going back to this location.
