Great way to start the new year
My son and I have always wanted to stay at this hotel and had the opportunity to for new years. It was perfect. Super comfy beds and very friendly staff. In walking distance to everything we wanted to do.

2/10 Poor

It was a great location however the heater was not working. Room had no phones, no heater no iron. Front desk was closed at night we had to call a # on the door only to offer extra blankets. It was noisy at night and kids were screaming early in the morning, which is ok but just to tell you how bad the windows are. For what we paid it’s not worth it.

10/10 Exceptional

Convenient and affordable - close to the Boardwalk! Very quiet and we were able to sleep comfortably (but it probably has to do with it being the off-season). Shower's dispensers for combo shampoo/body wash are an odd first, but eco-friendly! Served the basic needs for an overnight stay.

More of a motel than hotel
The location of the hotel is good - a couple of minutes from the boardwalk. The room was clean, but run down and kind of depressing. I stayed one night so it was not a big deal. I was able to bring my dog for an additional $20, which is very reasonable in comparison to other hotels. No amenities on site - I had to walk ten minutes to grab a cup of coffee in the morning.
