Everyone at the Commander was friendly and accommodating. The whole hotel was very clean and pleasant. We were 2 physically challenged customers and were treated like royalty. Anyone who wants to enjoy their stay should consider this hotel.

Rooms were very nice and staff was pleasant. A wonderful view of the boardwalk and ocean. Room had a full size fridge, dishwasher, small stove top and dishes to use which made it very convenient and helpful. We were pleased with our experience. We will be going back in May for our wedding.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The decor and furnishings have recently been updated. It all looks fresh and up to date. We love the convenience of staying on 14th street, close to everything worth doing. We look forward to future visits.

I made a mistake booking the dates and was really frustrated, but after some calls, I was able to fix the mistake although I had to change the room for one with pool view instead of ocean view. We arrived at the hotel and asked if they had any ocean view available and the front desk made an upgrade to...

We've been coming here since the 1990s and I am impressed with the new decor. The lobby is spectacular - a real fresh look - with free coffee and tea all day. We were in room 454, an ocean front suite, and the kitchen had been completely done over, making the suite more light and open. Beds seemed new and...

Rooms are clean. Indoor pool is tiny, so tiny. Shower pressure is non existent. Checked out early so I could go home and wash my hair and be able to rinse it properly. View is great with oceanfront room.

Suites were spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds were great and ocean front balcony was adequate. This hotel was advertised as being built in the 1930's, but has been updated recently so it has the appearance of being a much newer hotel. Resturant and garage parking on site makes this even more attractive for a vacation. Starbucks and a donut shop...

We spent three days at this lovely remodeled historic hotel on the boardwalk and 14th street. The location is prime on the boardwalk with everything you need within walking distance. Our oceanfront suite was perfect for a family of 5. It had a great counter space for preparing food along with a small refrigerator and microwave. The efficiency provided dinnerware...

If time or weather are an issue, simply make your way to the family friendly onsite Grottos Pizza and see for yourself why they are the first name in pizza here on the shore.
