    Too much money for an outdated room. They also charged $15 to park there. Ridiculous.

    Disappointed

    I was first disappointed by having to pay $15 per night to park, which I've never done before. Next they wanted us to wear wristbands on the property and said there would be security checks. Very few towels in the room and did not get replenished daily. Also had to ask for soap & toilet paper.

    The front office staff was very rude. We were not pleased that parking is not included in the over $400 we paid for two nights. Besides the parking, the room was disappointing. Not as clean as it should have been and very musty. The pool was nice and clean and a very good size. The location to the boardwalk was nice.

    Not worth the money

    Not worth the money. They don’t provide parking or beach tags unless you book directly. Some of the staff was nice. Some not so much. But THEY DO NOT provide housekeeping. Saying it’s COVID but it’s an excuse to be cheap and dirty.

    The Forum is in a great location, only about 2 blocks from the boardwalk & beach. Right across the street from a great breakfast spot. The room was clean overall & I liked the wooden floors. I didn’t like how the sink was outside of the bathroom & the size of the bath towels were pretty small - like half the size of a normal bath towel. Also the walls must be pretty thin bc we could hear our neighbors come in around 12:30 in the morning. We could hear their whole conversation which woke us up. Our TV turned on but there were no channels; the guy at the front desk came up to our room to try to fix it but couldn’t. The Forum probably should’ve gave us a discount at that point but didn’t.

    horrible

    I paid for a room that sleeps 5, it only had 2 double beds. I also paid for a kitchen all it had was a microwave & a mini fridge. I was told they provide 2 beach passes, that was a lie. And even thou it was out of their hands the electric was out for most of the first night
