I have stayed in so many places up and down the coast, from Newport RI to Chincoteague VA and I must say, the Empress is hands down my favorite. Everyone is so kind and accommodating. The tea party on Sundays, those sundays are some of my fondest memories. Tuesday, there's b**tchy bingo and even though the drag queen is slightly...

This place is clean and convenient if you like to party it's right downstairs. The hotel is a bit dated, but making improvements. Our room was equipped with a new flat screen TV, however the old box TV was still inside the cabinet and oddly enough still plugged in. Beds are comfortable and sheets are clean. It's great to use...

I really love this place! A lovely room with a balcony with an ocean view! Hanging out at the pool with the tiki bar is great fun. The great thing about the Empress is you can make it whatever kind of vacation you want it to be. If you want to have a nice quiet week go for the oceanside....

Loud, a room that saw its better days 25 years ago. Not clean. We paid 280 Dollars for a night. That was wasting money. There was rumble til 5 in the night. Never again. There is a number of nice and clean houses nearby. The only good thing is: it is close to the stone pony.

The hotel was clean and there was complimentary breakfast buffet. Parking is very limited and I checked in right at 3pm and there was no parking available. Bathroom and shower was teeny tiny. If you arent partying at the pool or club its probably not worth the price. If you are, its a good deal.

Went for a girl's night to see Springsteen related sights in the area. Good location and we lucked out with parking in the adjacent lot. Had a 3rd floor room facing the pool and although we stayed out late and didn't go to bed until 1:00 am, the continuous thump of the disco music at the pool went on until...
