They made us feel welcome with a smile and friendly greeting. The room was clean, the furnishings up to date and the bed very comfortable. We had a balcony room with an excellent view...

I stayed here for three nights while attending an event nearby. The hotel is in a decent location. The view from the balcony is nice. And my room, 208, wasn't bad. It had everything I needed. The bad parts: -The hallways are really dingy and dirty. -There was some sort of teen youth group staying here and they were literally...

Me and my family stay here a couple of times a year. It is always clean and the staff is the best.The free breakfast is really delicious not that cheap stuff. The hotel is in the middle of everything so no need to drive.

The hotel is a bit dated--could use a fair amount of updating. It's in a great location though, right on the boardwalk, close to several restaurants and amenities. Pretty much the whole hotel needs an upgrade though. It was fine for our several days at the beach, but nothing fancy. Breakfast was good enough--the setup is not conducive to the...

“We were on the 6th floor and that is high enough for a great view but not too high to feel at part of the beach experience.”

“Try to obtain a room with a balcony because the views of the beachfront are beautiful”

“All rooms are oceanfront, so that's the most important thing. Opt for a higher floor, rather than down closer to the noise of the boardwalk.”
