I completely agree with a previous guest, I have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and this place has gone DOWNHILL! And I WISH I could say it was pandemic related! Ok, they have ZERO staff, fair enough. However, if you can’t properly operate a business then you should close, especially when you have the NERVE to charge what they do. The apartment was disgusting when we got it, (coffee maker had old coffee in it, toilet was stopped up, dirty stove, dirty table, oven didn’t work, furniture outdated) even though they keep saying they are “renovating”. We were forced to sign a bs “quiet time” policy from 9am-9pm yet they let customers check in AFTER 11pm. Don’t even BOTHER calling the “emergency” number just to be told “they paid what you paid, and I am the night manager so oh well” oh and being told “yea well you signed the paperwork so you ‘ain’t’ gettin your money back”. Im not sure where she got her hospitality training but she should definitely be fired! You wanna pay $1800 for 3 days, have to clean your own room when you arrive, deal with partying and noise because they had to run some sort of special to make up for the bad weather and get told off by a “night manager” then this is the place for you!

I have stayed here on and off for many years. Whoever now owns this property obviously does not care at all about it. Had to change rooms 3 times. First room filled with mold, second room tub wouldn't drain, finally a more updated room on the second floor. Room was dirty, never swept under beds, (don't look if you go!) walls dirty, AC dirty, filter had mold spots. It's a shame this historical gem is being left to rot.

This used to be our go-to place at the beach. The rooms were small with and out of date but we didn't care because the location and the price were great. We have gone here every year for over 20 years. We called this year to reserve the rooms we had last year only to find out that there was a new owner and they had TRIPLED the rate!!! Last year in July we paid 1100.00 for 3 tiny rooms that were connected over the office area. This year they wanted 3500.00 for the same 3 rooms in July. We called around and got a whole floor of a huge house, 4 bedrooms a living room a porch and a full kitchen with beach tags for 8 for 2000.00 instead. We also found a 2BR apt with pullout sofa in the LR with a full kitchen for 800.00 The Pavillion is no longer competitive in price and sadly we will no longer go there until they fix this!

Moldy bathroom, shower curtain disgusting, bowl of moldy water under kitchen sink, Air conditioners never cleaned and full of mold and filters packed with dust. No outlet or lights that work in bedroom. Ceiling fans are gross, Bathtub caulk moldy. Ceiling tiles missing in bathroom and water stains on some. Just a gross place, we have stayed there for eight years and this is the first time this happened. Very disappointed

Positives: Only one block from the boardwalk and beach Allowed us to reserve only one night Friendly staff Negatives: Small parking lot TV in our room was missing the cable box The overflow parking lot was 3 blocks away The "heated" pool was colder than the ocean Noisy Decor was meh Strong mold smell when you open the dresser drawers Look, it's a motor lodge with apartments in the back. It's not fancy. We didn't expect it to be. But it was clean. Basically, we paid for location.
