The location is great, but the rooms were out dated and we had a hard time closing our door to our room. We had to push our weight into it to get it to shut. You also could see the sun light around the door. We had a ocean view room and it was a wonder view you could really...

Loved, LOVED this Howard Johnson. Newly refreshed, it has EVERYTHING you need for a quick beach get-away! Clean, well-stocked rooms, e.g., towels, toiletries, kitchenette, etc., etc. Short walk to your towel and umbrella on the sand. Life Guard on duty. Restaurant on site offering a wonderfully tasty breakfast/brunch menu. Boardwalk Shuttle stops in front of the property going and coming...

Room was fine. Elevator could have used an air freshener. Cigarette container needed to be cleaned up. Did not get in the pool because of the weather.

The room was alright- nothing so great or so amazing. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room smelt a little moldy and damp but that also could be from the cold AC that was on constantly. Over all it was good for the one night. The rooms were cramped- two queen beds and a pull out sofa...basically side by...

First time staying here. The room was a bit smaller than some other hotels, but it was very clean. One of the beds was very comfy, the other had a giant dip in it. There was no soap in the bathroom and the maid did not come in Fri or Sat. However, the front desk staff - we dealt with...
