I can't express how bad this hotel is. There are flies in the room. It looks like there was a murder in here. Quinten Tarantino would have a field day in here. The cigarette stench is ridiculous. Never stay here. I can't believe I paid $150 for this room.

This hotel is definitely not worth $135 a night. To start, the room we were assigned first had a musty, smoky smell. Then they put us in a different room and it was filthy, especially the rug. There were stains & dirty spots all over it. Actually, there was even an extra ironing board setup near the bathroom as if... More

The place is a dump. Non smoking room smelled like a dirty ash tray. Tried to scam additional fees for using a specific credit card. The owner Raj, was arrogant. After seeing the room and the arrogance, we decided not to stay. The owner became quite taunting which is not only unprofessional but completely classless. I would rather sleep in... More

We have been to this place to before and had a better outcome. The overall of the room was filthy. Bedding and tables nightstands were clean. We asked for a non-smoking room and they put us in between two smoking. They also do not have enough handicap parking or decent parking. The lower price from competior websites is a joke... More

Awful hotel, poor customer service. Booked hotel online (hotels.com) as a last minute beach trip. When we arrived at the hotel, they claimed to have never received the reservation, probably a 30 minute ordeal. They told us they had no more standard rooms for booking, and said they only had one suite available for double the price. Luckily, we were... More

Booked this hotel the morning of the day we were planning to stay early in July as we had planned on meeting some friends in Asbury Park. Unfortunately, due to a last minute change of plans we were unable to find any other reasonably price rooms closer to Asbury Park. The price paid for a one night stay was $140... More

this was the worst hotel ever . The water did not drain. I have been here for about an hour and the room is still freezing. The sheets were stained.
