This is the best hotel we've stayed in near the boardwalk. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's convenient, affordable, clean, friendly and safe. Thanks, front desk, for all of your help above and beyond your regular duties! We will be back, soon.

Directly opposite to boardwalk area, great location, however it isn’t really close to the main shopping area. Rooms are basic and clean. Wifi is free and reliable. Onsite secure parking meaning you don’t have to beat the crowds to the public parking.

This hotel is awesome. The price was great (way cheaper than anything else in the area). The breakfast was coffee, tea, hot chocolate, muffins, bagels, scones and fresh fruit and juice. There was always plenty of food. The location was so close to the boardwalk...More

Great Location! Nice balcony/porch with table and chairs. Very simple room, nothing fancy. It served it's purpose. You definitely pay for the location/convenience. Continental breakfast was very minimum, but the coffee was hot and good muffins.

I don't think so. We were only there for a night. But the beach is across the street.
