Unhelpful “ kids” @ front desk. Talk like they have no energy/tired. Also talk like that when you call in. Don’t smile/ The pandemic is over so why are we not cleaning the rooms taking out the trash and restocking the toilet paper and shampoo? I paid $800 for three nights at this hotel and never got clean sheets or towels unless I asked, and the person I had to ask didn’t speak English. Hotel is on the second floor and you have to walk up at least 15 steps to get into the hotel. There is no Porter and no one to help you with your luggage. And when I asked for help they asked the security guard and he refused to help. I would never stay here again. It is old, with mildew around the bathtub an old plug in the bathtub that came all the way out just to empty the water. Crusty shower/ tub controls. Rug in room had obvious spills as did the hallway & needed scrubbed. And the only available blanket was at the top of th closet in an open bag,dirty & smelled.It may seem like a good location but there are no restaurants nearby to go to breakfast except on the weekends. The only thing that’s available are people in a café who talk on their cell phone while they’re waiting on you and again and while they’re putting your food on the table. When we told her our order was wrong and she forgot to give us silverware and drinks she said OK then walked out the door to go do something else and never did come back. The pool was closed. It just looks like there’s no leader and nobody taking charge

For the prices of the room , I expected a better tv, better showers ( bath tub peeling out and not enough towels in the room . Very simple room for a Master room with balcony) . Other than that, room was clean and very good view.

The condos above exceeded my expectations. Very roomy and close to the boardwalk. There is a bar across the street that seemed to be a little loud into the night but other than that everything was GREAT!

We went during the week on off season so hotel and area was quiet. Restaurant on property was not open and many in surrounding area also closed but there were still a lot to choose from. Room was larger than most hotel rooms. Staff seemed to be limited since there was no one at desk when we arrived but rooms were ready hours ahead of time. Certain on weekends and summer that this location would be awesome for being surrounded by boardwalk activity. Probably different level of stay during these times - may be a lot noisier. Overall great stay and would stay there again.
