2/10 Poor

No housekeeping offered!
First room after check in was open bed not made towels on floor. Upgraded to suite, door was hard to close bathtub / jacuzzi was cracked filthy. Try to be eco friendly so did not want sheets new towels first two nights, third night still not clean told they did not do housekeeping and if we wanted clean towels to leave them outside the door! Well this would be nice to know at checkin. Construction going on again not stated on website. Front desk clueless as to customer service, wife wanted glass of wine after long drive they had no clue on local spots except “go downtown” not one good morning or good evening. I still am in shock we could not get clean sheets!!! Our entire stay! Only thing of any worth was the bed itself very comfortable. Oh and you needed a telescope to see the TV it was so far away from the bed. All of the indoor furniture was stained. Outdoor furniture seemed newer. Employee lounge was the lobby! Came back to half dozen staff having their lunch in the lobby!

Traditional boardwalk trip
Very easy walk to the boardwalk. Staff was friendly and helpful. I wish the pool and hot tub were open later to relax in after a day at the boardwalk. Could hear people walking on floor above us while sleeping. Great value for the price.
