We stayed at the Sahara's Tower Building, which has a pool and Cafe on site. The room was very clean, the maid came every day and even though we were one block back from the beach, we had an awesome view from our balcony (we were 4th floor, all the way at the end). Our girls, ages 11 and 8, LOVED the pool. It ranged from 3-5 ft. deep which was perfect for them. I cannot say enough good things about the Sahara Cafe! The staff was very friendly, the food was really good (homemade food) and the portions were very generous. The price was great, we went down for the early bird special between 7-8 am and got two eggs, two strips of bacon (or sausage) and two LARGE pancakes for $3.99! I ended up splitting one with my 8 yr. old cause I couldn't eat it all myself! The room had a small fridge with a small freezer compartment and a small microwave. Now, I will say if you're looking for a high end type room, this is not for you, but if you just want a good, clean place to stay, you will not be disappointed. Also, the tower building has a parking lot right below and an elevator. It is close to the boardwalk and beach, but at the same time, I noticed that in the evening/night hours when the boardwalk is buzzing with people, it was less crowded up at this end than down around the lower streets. We appreciated that it was quiet when we were ready for bed. The only cons I can even speak of would be the pillow wasn't very comfortable, (although the bed was comfortable), and the washcloths and towels were a little rough. Overall, it is a great place though. We felt very comfortable here and would absolutely stay here again.
