          Good location right across from the boardwalk, cheap and you get what you pay for. Room 206 is very noisy though, some sort of banging going on all night. avoid it if possible. Breakfast is very very basic. Staff are very friendly at reception

          Looking to book at your motel through Trip Advisor. Do you have an elevator? We're traveling with my 85 year old mother, who can not walk up or down stairs.

          Unfortunately we do not have an elevator, however we do have rooms on the ground floor, so there would be no stairs between the parking lot and those rooms.
