Ok but wouldn’t go back.
Good location. But a bit outdated in main area. Not great beds and shower was very small. Could be neater in room. A but dinged up. Not crazy bout parking up against someone’s room and have then leaning in my car. Just not as well maintained as I expected for the costly price. Definitely not worth $200 night!

Absolutely outstanding!! I’ve been coming for about 10 years. It’s so convenient. Boardwalk and beach just a block away. Room always clean and employees always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend. See you next year!!!

Don’t stay here
This motel is not a great motel to stay at. The motel needs to be renovated badly, the laminate flooring was peeling up, there were holes in the ceiling, there was dirt in the corners, and there was about a half inch gap under the front door that leads right to the outside. What looked like black mold was in the ceiling corner in the bathroom and the AC filter needed replacement. If you are able to, please pay a little more money and stay somewhere else.
