    It is a short walk to the beach and just a bit longer walk to the downtown night life. The desk counter attendant was friendly and helpful. We appreciated the free parking. Our room had two bedrooms, which is just what we were looking for.

    The hotel is showing its age, but if it were renovated it would be too expensive to stay there. There is no breakfast, but that gave us reason to try the excellent food at nearby restaurants.

    Walking distance to wharf and boardwalk.

    Extremely Intense cleaning solution smell in room. Pool was at least 90 degrees, and the smoke detector went off at 4:00a.m. for no apparent reason. We had to remove the battery!

    It was very close to the boardwalk.

    The room smelled horrible - the carpet was disgusting and constantly damp. Your feet got dirty very quickly if walking barefoot. Everytime we came back to the room and opened the door the scent was nauseating - we had to resort to buying air freshener but that was only temporary. On the first night we arrived the room light was flickering. I told the guy and he said to use the lamps instead. The lamp on one bedside table did not work (the knob was broken). So the only light source was the other bedside lamp table....for the entire room. The main light would turn on for a few minutes, then turn off, then turn back on. During the day we had to resort to opening the window for some light but in the night time there was no other option. The place was a selling point for me because it was the only option I could find that was a “two bedroom” suite. However, note that one bedroom opens into the other, so not a good option if you’re after some privacy. There was no warm water in the bathroom tap which made for some very cold water on mornings. The rooms are in desperate need of a deep clean (or ideally throwing out the nasty carpets altogether) and some serious TLC. The place felt like a dive and for that price point it is not worthy it. I’d never recommend this place. Would have left immediately but there was a no cancellation policy and the card would have been charged anyway so we were stuck.
