Reviewed 18 January 2012

Was lured by pics & internet offer; stayed in early August 2011. Pics do not reflect what is..however, I would stay here again, if ....they would update. No elevators. Pool-small. No microwave in room. Noisy AC. Would never stay poolside again. View is of an alley where garbage is picked up. Parking is limited;however, there is an overflow lot across a busy street. Poolside room-4th floor-disgusting, carpets-filthy, old, room furniture-very old, room smelled-had to lysol daily. Bathroom-small but, there was plenty of hot water. Told manager I was deceived by ad and she invited me back in late Sept for an oceanfront room which I thought was very nice--at a reduced rate! My daughter did go and she had a beautiful oceanfront room on 2nd floor--no problems. Maybe they put the internet specials on poolside in worst rooms--thus-you get what you pay for. Best feature-- ocean was beautiful; can pick up tram for boardwalk, bike rentals. Within walking distance on street to most things.

Room Tip: Book an oceanfront room unless you don't care about the room and its features.

We chose to book a room there based on the reviews, the oceanfront room with balcony, and the proximity to the boardwalk (even though we didn't realize this is on the non-active side) - all of that was fine. We had a shared balcony; which was no big deal for late September, and the beach was just a few steps away.
Our room did have mildew on a wall, which didn't bother us, and the maid cleaned it one of the mornings (the same maid threatened to put our shoes out on the balcony since there was sand on them!).
A major disappointment was that the microwave and free coffee they claim to have is located in their lobby, not in your room. So we didn't even bother - just went out to eat. The biggest disappointment was the lack of internet service. They claim to have it when you book. I even followed up with an e-mail to verify they have it, to which they replied "Yes we do." We got their with our laptop, and could not connect. Then the girl in the lobby told us they don't have it! The work had to get done the night of our return instead.
Would I stay there again? No; once was enough.

Room Tip: Don't book on the pool side. It's a tiny pool surrounded by parking lot. Go for oceanfront.

We were able to check in early and check out later which was a god send since we had a sick child with us. The woman at the front desk was amazing and very helpful and accomodating. Room was nice and the ocean view was amazing. We are definitely staying there again!

Room Tip: Get a room on the side so that you can see the beach and the bay!

The bathrooms are absolutely horrible (hair and dirt on the floor). Mildew smell throughout the room, we were afriad to sleep under the covers.
$437.00 of my personal property was stolen from me. The manager had nothing to say besides " I have to take the maids word for it." I am considering filing a police report.
I will make sure the word gets out about this terrible Motel.
