3.4 Poor
Cons:The only plus is the hotel is a 10 min walk from the Boardwalk. However it is clearly a 2 star hotel... Even that is over doinging it
2.5 Poor
Pros:Location, the hotel was within walking distance to the beach.
Cons:Overpriced for the quality of the hotel. While reserving this hotel parking was supposedly included, I had to pay a parking fee upon arrival. When I arrived there was sand on the chairs and on my bed. The bathroom smelled and did not look clean. There was only one towel available, I had to ask for more. I ended getting a few hand towels, instead of bath towels.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:The facility is well cared for - newly painted, clean with attention to small details like the lighting in the courtyard. Breakfast was nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable.
Cons:Our room was a little odd - a huge closet that was an obvious retrofit because the door was held closed by a lock on the outside to keep it from hitting the front door (someone could be locked inside the closet...) Poor lighting - no light switch near the door - at night, you had to enter a dark room to turn on the lights, Minimal lighting - bedside lights and one recessed light made for a very dark room, Bathroom retrofit with a strange double door entry and odd shower configuration.
3.1 Poor
Pros:Not one thing the room had part of it remodel and the other tours the bathroom was old the shower old and dirty.
Cons:I did not like the room and the bathroom what was Mo's it important it wasn't clean .
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:location was great.pool was nice.
Cons:toilet ran the whole time.lights didn't work.towels were old and needed some fresh paint and baseboards were missing.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The room and bathroom was large and spacious. Beds were comfortable. The pool was open until 10 p.m. Walking distance to the boardwalk.
Cons:Towels were dirty. Wouldn't clean our room. Had to ask for clean towels after 3 days. No a/c in our room. The FREE WIFI never worked in our room. Said they would check it and never did. Some staff members were not friendly. The breakfast could use some pastries. Not everyone likes waffles.
8.5 Very Good
Pros:The works were nice The pool was clean
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Room wasn't ready on time so we got a free upgrade
Cons:Parking was full even though we had a parking pass but they made a spot for us
2.5 Poor
Pros:We chose this hotel, because of the location.
Cons:The overall was dirty. Commom area sofas were dirty. Carpet in the room was dirty. The dinet chairs in room were dirty. Jacuzzi filled with kids. Not relaxing environment.
2.0 Poor
