    Decent location; only a ten minute walk to the beach/boardwalk.

    Poor rooms, old and tired. Damaged furniture and wallpaper peeling from the wall. Too expensive for the quality of accommodation.

    Location was good as it was close to both the beach/boardwalk and downtown! The room seemed a bit dated but was more than enough for us as we don't really need a fancy room as we spend most of our time out and about.

    I was a bit shocked when upon checking in there was a sign on the wall saying 'this motel stores chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm'. We didn't drink the water put it that way. I've never seen this before and not sure if it's common to see or not. It wasn't that cheap either, although it was a Friday that we stayed but still the cheapest I could find close to the Boardwalk.

    Small, broken hair dryer, right next to the street with skaters.

    Fabulous

    Room was to be expected but our bathroom was amazing. Cribbed shower, lots of space, remodeled tiles. I'd go there again just for the shower

    Staff was okay but at least you only need to see them at the beginning and the end

    Great for the price. Walking distance to the boardwalk.

    Parking was not the greatest but you could not beat the price.

    A small, recently redecorated room, everything clean and working. A good value for a single or 2 good friends.

    The location is great for waking to the boardwalk.

    The room was furnished with old furniture, it wasn't very clean, there was mold around the window in the second bedroom. You could hear street noise through the fan in the bathroom. Oh, the bathroom! There was garbage in the bin in the bathroom when we checked in, the shower it's the size of a casket at best, and just about as dark. The neighbors were noisy - paper thin walls. The best part, though, was that we hated it so much that we checked out a day early (being charged for a second night anyway), and when we went to the office - where there is supposed to be breakfast as well - on a Saturday morning, we were met by a sign on the door that said they would not be open until 8:30am and not to disturb them unless it was an emergency! Seriously, don't stay here.

    Superb

    The location and price and the fact there were 2 separate bedrooms as we traveled with our children

    Not much variety for breakfast

    Superb

    The motel is only about a 10min walk to the boardwalk. The bathroom is huge and motel is really clean.

    I wish there was a microwave in the room and also, I didn't like having to pay .25 cents for ice.

    Good

    staff was very helpful and friendly...room was very clean.

    location is sketchy...more of a motel, rundown, curtains, bedspreads, etc...very old.

    Fabulous

    It's about 1/4 of a mile from the boardwalk, which wasn't bad for us. The room was clean, and the breakfast was better than we expected as well. They had fruit and mini cinnamon rolls and muffins, pretty good for how comparably cheap it was.

    The only bad things about the hotel are things you would bring yourself. The complimentary toiletries are the worst, so bring your own; same with the hair dryer. And we had extra blankets which was nice because the sheets were a little light and thin.
