The hotel staff & the room was fantastic. The desk agent recommended a few local restaurants that are off the beach that the locals go to as well as one's that are on the beach. We have tried 1 so far. The bed was very comfortable

I was not happy that within 48 hours my credit card was charged with full amount. I have never seen that before. usually it is for one night deposit. in addition the taxes were not added at point of reservation which increased the amount I was told at point of reservation. I was also told that b'fast was included and...

Beds were incredibly comfortable!! Room was decent. The temperature was slightly hard to control, freezing in the hallway but muggy in the room. We did find a leftover dirty napkin in the corner but other than that no huge complaints. I would stay here again, also had convenient location.

It was near the Tanger Outlet and plenty of restaurants. Just minutes from the beaches, so it was a short drive. Our bathtub didn't look clean when we arrived, but overall the stay was enjoyable. Pleasant staff.

Loved the stay, very comfortable bed & huge enough. Just be aware, that though its says rooms have kitchen/kitchenette, it is only a small microwave and a mini-fridge. Ofcourse, they were nice enough to provide us plates & silverware from the bistro.
