This place is great! I was in town on business, and happened to drive by this place. I've seen it before a few times; the place looks beautiful compared to anyplace else in the area. Well, the room they rented me looked pretty good, and it came with a jacuzzi tub. When I mentioned how much I appreciated the tub,...

Location is great, but rooms are old and it feels very motelish. Don't come here unless you're good with small outdated motels. I was very disappointed.

I recently had the opportunity to stay in my hometown for a night and was lucky enough to happen on this very cool little motel. We had a room with two twins in living room, full kitchen, and queen bedroom. It was perfect! Within walking to distance (2 minutes) to the beach and another two minute walk to Boardwalk. And...

The walls are PAPER thin. Not muffled voices but you could hear every word. The neighbors were disrepectful, smoking outside the rooms, screaming at their kids early in the morning. A homeless man came through to enjoy the free morning coffee and sat on our patio in front of the room! WAY overpriced for the quality. The rooms were clean...

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
