Reviewed 9 April 2017

The next day, we discovered that many things in town were closed - restaurants, mini-golf, the amusement parks.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review, we really appreciate it! I must say, we run into all kinds of circumstances here at the hotel and it was a pleasure to be able to help you all out!

Our room was ocean front,so we got to wake up looking and hearing the ocean. College kids showed up and had to be told to settle down by the Ocean city police. We had a rainy day but still enjoyed our stay. Room was clean,but no screens on the door to the balcony.The staff was helpful and very nice.

Our Air Conditioner and the unit next to us rattled loudly every time it went on. The Restaurant's exhaust fan shook the house morning and night. Sugar ants were climbing all over our desk and suitcase. The breakfast at the restaurant was cold and appeared to have been taken off the buffet that was served earlier. It was unpleasant and...
