VERY NICE OWNERS. but the hotel room wasn't the greatest. And it smelled so bad of cigarettes. But it was cheap, so you can't expect much out of that. Location was decent, you weren't very far from the boardwalk.

I have no idea what people are complaining about...I stayed here for 1 nights a couple of weeks ago. The people at the front desk were very nice.. The rooms have tile flooring which is a lot better than the smelly carpeting that most places have near the shore. I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again. Some people just look... More

Room smelled like smoke and pee all at the same time. Noisy and sketchy characters outside the room at 3am. Parking across the street - sketchy. Worst of all - day 2 all we needed was clean towels, yet there was someone else's gross hair all over our shower and our "clean" towels - GROSS! Dirty liquor bottles under the... More

I called and was told that they had 1 double room left. Their website shows the room is $159/night. The woman who answered told me she could do it for... More

Standard room. Nothing fancy. Friendly front desk. Got free beach passes. Bathroom clean but small. Air conditioner was loud but kept cool. Biggest problem was room was non-smoking, and it smelled terribly of smoke. Linens smelled like smoke. It probably solid to help the person cleaning the rooms smelled like a smoke bomb. In the end, it gave us a... More

Dear Cynthia, I am sorry room smelled like smoke. Our rooms are non-smoking but sometimes guest violate the policy and smoke in the room anyway. We try to enforce the policy as much as possible. If you had informed the front desk they would have gladly switched your room to your satisfactory. I just wished you had mentioned something which... More

Very plain room, no decoration whatsoever. Couldn't get wifi, no ice machine. No phone in room, not that I would have used it. Small pool. Good points, tile floor (hate carpet in hotels) clean. Newer TV. Cheapest price but for 170 would expect better even near the beach.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our establishment for your short gateaway. Our rooms are basic and do not have phones in the room since everyone nowadays have cell phone. We have removed all the carpet for all of our rooms since tile is more easy to maintain and also it does not hold any odor. We are not the... More

The house was beautiful,clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to use the hotel pool which was also very nice. The kids loved it. Everyone had there own bed. We are a family of 5. We were also given beach badges. I recommend this house for anyone with children.

The apartment was average. A good option for fitting a lot of people. The beds are not very comfortable and there was no blanket. Only a sheet and mattress duvet (which most places do not regularly wash). The bathroom could really use an update. It smelt like urine, the curtain was ripped and dirty. The Mirrored cabinet above the sink... More
