    Room was okay, clean, smells good, pool was good/heated. Breakfast was okay, only 1 waffle maker, long line, some muffins, coffee and cereal (had better), small parking lot, first come first serve. Would stay here again since its very close to beach and boardwalk.

    We were there over the winter holiday and they wouldn't let us check in early. Our room wasn't ready so they assigned us to a different one. I think we were checked in and our too about 3:30. We got there a little before 3.
