We stayed in early March, mid-week. Although they did not come down on their advertised price, they did upgrade us to a room on the ocean side, which was unexpected, and a nice surprise. The room was lovely, clean and fresh-smelling, and sufficiently large, with a balcony that would add to the livable space in warmer weather. The view and location are fabulous, and being on the boardwalk on its quiet end was a real treat. The property is non-smoking, however one employee would stand right outside the door to the lobby to smoke; he needs to get farther away from where guests are coming and going. When we arrived the hotel was doing off-season maintenance, pressure washing the balconies; we were not warned about this when we made our reservation. We do understand that properties will use their slow times to do this kind of necessary work, but we feel that something should be said before guests arrive to find the lower entry door (where one brings in luggage) impassable due to flying water and paint chips. Having said all that, we found the hotel room (7th floor) and lobby to be bright and airy, and enjoyed our stay once we got over running the gauntlet to bring in our luggage.
