    Good location right across from the boardwalk, cheap and you get what you pay for. Room 206 is very noisy though, some sort of banging going on all night. avoid it if possible. Breakfast is very very basic. Staff are very friendly at reception

    The room was decent and clean. Good location; across the street from the boardwalk. The staff was friendly and helpful and offered free parking. I would stay here again. They apparently offer a free breakfast but I left before it was served.

    Our stay was absolutely fabulous. Clean room. Beautiful bathroom. Comfy beds. Wonderful staff. We stayed during that February storm that hit the area and it was a beautiful view watching the lights of Neptune's kingdom shine through the rain and reflect off the wet lot....More

    Looking to book at your motel through Trip Advisor. Do you have an elevator? We're traveling with my 85 year old mother, who can not walk up or down stairs.

    Unfortunately we do not have an elevator, however we do have rooms on the ground floor, so there would be no stairs between the parking lot and those rooms.
