I liked that there was an ice machine and free beach tags to use during our stay. There were no dislikes. Very nice stay, and very pleasant staff.

Room looked NOTHING like advertised. Everything was cracked and broken. I can only hope it was actually clean to avoid Covid 😭 I suppose you get what you pay for but $100 seems a bit steep for this motel that could feature in a scary movie..

The rooms were older and in need of an update, but the pool was perfect for the kids and we were just steps from the boardwalk. It's not luxurious, but it wasn't scary, either.

Good location and nice pool. The cleanliness and condition of the rooms and motel overall were just ok, leaning towards not so great. Could definitely be better but was still a fun time.

Literally falling apart. This motel needs major repair. We took a room based on the proximity to the boardwalk (across the street). It’s a step up from sleeping in garbage can.

Nice hotel, and great staff they wee so nice to me

Close to the beach and the casino my kids asked me to go back to home they can’t sleep

Location is great, they don't clean your room during your stay and I couldn't tell you when the last time the floor was clean before we got there among other things, front desk person practically lays down behind the desk so you can't see her and she doesn't hear you come in so unless you lean over you're waiting there a long time, no beach tags, furniture pieced together, and the bathroom was held together with caulk.

I love it it’s comfortable it’s next to the boardwalk and Lucky Leo’s where I love to play games. And the staff is very pleasant to be around. The other guests are usually very nice to chat with.

We had a great time friendly staff also. Close to beach and walking distance to everything we like.

We were locked in our room as deadbolt was jammed & when maint. woman climbed thru window to get into our room, she was able to unlock, but told NOT to use it. No hairdryer or phone in room. Tiles broken, pool in disrepair, high noise area, neighbor took out his boom box, speakers and alcohol on the balcony at about 5:30PM. We immediately checked out. Afraid of reprisal if we reported him. Ofce mgr joined his party also! Would like money back - only stayed there 2 hrs.

Front desk woman was hard to understand, had to make her say everything 3 or 4 times. I have never been in a hotel/motel where there was no place to hang clothes. One of the beds was broken and the sink vanity was broken with a split down the front. The room smelled of cleaner that made us sneeze every time we walked in. I paid extra for a room with 2 beds which we used but housekeeping only made up one bed after the first night and left a roll of toilet paper, a plastic trash bag and some ragged towels on the couch. There was no house keeping after the first night which was a unfortunate since the sheets didn't stay on the bed and we were sleeping on plastic mattress covers by morning. Every towel in our room had black stains on it and some were rags. There was mold in the bathroom and since we were at the beach the floor got covered with sand, No one came to vacuum and there was no broom to clean up. We stayed 3 nights, 4 days so you can imagine the amount of sand on the floor. We left the trash cans full and the house keeping envelope empty. We will never come back here.

I drove in for one night myself. So I wanted a place to drop my stuff and head to the beach. That is this kind of motel. They do offer free parking passes on their property but it is tight. I got a small scratch in my door from either someone's beach chair or a car door. The room is very dated. Needs repairs and updating. My cable in my room didn't work. The bathroom is a standing shower with a toilet. Sink is in the main sleeping area. The water did get hot I was impressed there. But the shower curtains were gross and some tile work was falling off. Like I said this is the type of room you drop and go. Cheap and next to the beach.

Great location And the pool is nice but the rooms need updating

If you are looking for a better place to sleep then your car... look no further. Don't expect maid service or anything other then a nice looking pool. Clearly I should have looked for somewhere else to stay, or just packed a tent. The receptionist is a condescending and will make it clear that "you are not staying online". Only good thing about this hotel was the free beach passes... why else would anyone stay here?!

This place is a dump. Has many permanent residents that are so high they walk around like zombies asking for cash and cigarettes. We were lucky enough to have a pimp and his two prostitutes in the room next to ours. Many visitors all hours of the night. The owner admitted she didn't care what went on, as long as she was getting paid. Better off sleeping in your car.
