Hotel was adequate and clean. Heater worked fine. Not a luxury or very comfortable hotel, but had the basics, including refrigerator in room. Bathroom was clean but not roomy. Hotel director was friendly, outgoing, and hospitable. Enjoyed talking with him. Breakfast was cozy and nice.

The manager, John, was very professional and even had complimentary...

Very poor quality and out dated for the money they charge. The parking lot is very small and they run out of parking spaces quickly.

The location was fantastic, right on the boardwalk, easy access to the beach. The rooms were clean. No frills, but clean and good for the price.
