very good for business trip as well as, family trip.

I was in town for a workshop. the accommodation at the hotel was very good. the trip from the hotel to the convention center was excellent. The local Jitney stop is directly in front of the Hotel, i used it to travel to the Convention Center and shopping area. It is cheaper that using the taxi. The fare is $2.25 per person

Sub par

I spent a lot of money for a less than mediocre room. Needs updating. My walk to the boardwalk on Saturday evening with my two children was a bit sketchy. Staff was attentitive and did their best.

Feedback

My experience at the hotel was very positive. I would appreciate if they could at least leave a bottle of water in the refrigerator for room guest. Also, it would be appreciated if they could leave a pamphlet in the room containing instructions of where things are located in the hotel.

Off The Boardwalk

If you are looking for value, this is an option. Rooms are clean, older, but much cheaper than the resorts. You are two blocks from boardwalk, so easy walk. Helpful staff, seedy area, but with cameras and lights, safe. Also, nice little diner next to hotel. Good breakfast under 7 bucks.
