Impressive Property

Very impressed with the quality and luxury at an unbelievable price. Super clean, large bathroom with every amenity and a great walk-in shower. Lots of plush towels and pillows. Located on the beach with a great ocean view and plenty of free on-site parking. I will return for future visits!

Value With A View!

I was very happy with the hotel accommodations and the staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and couldn't have asked for a better view of the ocean and boardwalk. The only that could have been better was a microwave already in the room. This was a great value.

Great place for our overnighter!

Our experience was great! We only stayed one night to attend a concert, but really liked the place! The staff was friendly and accommodating by allowing us to check in early, and the room and view were beautiful! We were disappointed that the breakfast buffet was not open, but that was our fault for not allowing enough time for a la carte options.

No Microwave

We were pleased with our stay overall, but not having a microwave was a bummer. Having a coffee pot in the room was very nice.

Great Stay!

This hotel is right on the beach practically. The view from the room was oceanfront, and was the best part of the stay! The room was average. The best were extremely hard spring mattresses and they probably could've been updated. We went during off season so the restaurant in the hotel didn't have as much selection that they usually do during the "season".

Great location!

Clean, comfortable, and a good location. I was not impressed by the onsite dining. I did not use the pool, though it looked clean and inviting. The service desk could have been more professional and friendly. Would stay for it's comfort and location.

Hard to beat for the price, but didn't get good sleep

The pluses are the location, value, and nice staff. However the negatives were the room was loud (can hear the hallway too clearly which got noisy at like 7am), we could also hear our neighbors pretty clearly, and if you have the door open to hear the ocean, you will hear some drunk people on a balcony near you talking loudly..I had to shut the door because of them talking for hours starting at 2am. Also the mattress makes spring noises everytime you move, and we are not heavy people (130 lbs), also the mattresses were uncomfortable.

Great Oceanfront Stay

The location of this hotel is perfect, it looks like basically every room has an ocean view. The staff was helpful and friendly. It's a very basic hotel, but clean and perfect for a stay on the beach.
