Keep in mind that this is a 2 star hotel. I have never stayed in a motel before, let alone a 2 star. I think that for the price, and the fact it is 2 star, it was perfectly fine. The biggest issues we had were that the room was way too small for 5 of us (we had a room with 2 queens) and the people above us sounded like all they were doing is having a dance party/moving furniture party all night. The parking spots are also very small and you have to make sure you are parked between the lines or they will call you to move your car (whoops!).
We did partake in their free breakfast every morning. It is mostly carbs, and does offer waffle makers which the kids LOVED! There was also breads, bananas, apples, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, and some small muffins and coffee and juice.
They have beach cruiser bikes to rent in the main office which my 13 year old daughters and I tried out. This was great fun! We roe the bikes around the area, down to the boardwalk, saw a skate-park, and were back in about 20 minutes. Since they charge by the house and we were not gone nearly that long, they charged us less money which was appreciated.
Another thing is that though the rooms were cleaned daily, they never left extra shampoo or other toiletries. I also had to take an extra toilet paper off a maid's cart as they did not leave an extra in the room.
The room contains a small TV, microwave, fridge, small table, bedside table and 2 beds. This is all that is in the room aside from a sink and a very small bathroom. If traveling with more than 4, even if there are kids, I recommend at least 2 rooms.
