Generations of my family have stayed at the Kings Inn, and I've been continuing to stay at this motel for the last few years, not anymore. The staff is 50/50 when it comes to being personable. I ran into one nice gentleman when I checked in, and a rude, back talking lady checking out. I used a wash cloth in...

I dont like to be mean but lets just be honest, i would rather die then another night ever in that place! I would call the rooms decent if you like moving toilets and moldy showers. Further more the staff, so while we were there for a beach blast our car got hit while parked in the more expensive parking...

Notice any decent reviews are very old and notice the staff or owner doesn't reply. Total dump, dirty, towels are like sandpaper , rude in office and even booking a room over the phone seems like you are bothering them. They try to charge you extra for anyone that waves at your from the boardwalk or stops to say hi....

I am not saying the Kings Inn is perfect but they have a wonderful staff and the pool is very nice. There is also a kiddie pool for the young ones. It is located right on the Boardwalk and the beach. Of course, the water is out there. lol Easiest way to get to the beach is to walk out...

We booked a room with the owner, who did not write down the number of people in the room to be charged. When checking in after over 4 hrs drive, the staff was rude and told me it wasn't his fault everything wasn't written down, but if I didn't like what I was being charged, I could leave. I paid...

Crappy rooms and rude staff! Very outdated motel with small parking spaces. Not a good place if you have a bigger new vehicle! Also railings on the second floor are loose and unstable. Wouldn't take much to be able to fall thru! When I ask the staff if I could park somewhere else because spot was tight I was told...

This motel was by far one of the dirtiest places I have ever stayed. Not only did we find toe nail clippings embedded in the carpet but the bathroom looked as if it hasn't been cleaned since opening day. The ceilings and walls had major cracks ad damage too them as well as a very old outdated TV, which only...

This motel is run down and rusty (sinks, windows, doors and tubs). The rooms are very small and dirty. Worst of all is the management, specifically a lady with shoulder length "dirty" blonde hair. Multiple times we heard her talk negative about people that would call and ask questions and when we asked for no room service just a vacuum...
