8.0 Great
Pros:Good tv, comfy beds, nice pressure for showers
Cons:People around the area, lots of hookers
5.4 Passable
Pros:Great location, enjoyable walking distance from the boardwalk, good value, and the service is very friendly for what I expected! Fridge and microwave in the hotel room which is nice! Overall would book again on a budget trip.
Cons:There was lots of cigarette burns in our smoking room which is expected but it made the bed more uncomfortable to sleep in. My boyfriend didn't want to use the bed blankets but I used them anyway and felt itchy all three nights! I regretted it immediately. Room wasn't cleaned after the first night unfortunately but we weren't messy. The maid was cleaning our neighbors room the 3rd day, but they happened to leave their Pepsi drink in our room! I think the maid's child left it there? They were playing in the other room while it was getting cleaned.
