Utilitarian, older property - not in perfect condition. Clean. Friendly desk and support staff (Floyd). One block away from the Boardwalk. Jimmy's - Best breakfast place in Seaside Heights one block away. Pool is nice and perfect for families with small children. Parking area is safe.

You can't expect a Marriott, it's the jersey shore, you won't be in the room that often anyway. Not a bad price, so close to the boardwalk, guests and workers are all pleasant, even BBQ together.

We were offered two rooms. One apt that was so moldy I was surprised the bldg wasn't condemned. There were failing stair treads leading to the apt room The second room we saw had an ashtray filled with dead cigarettes outside the entrance door. Bedspreads had cigarette burn holes The room smelled nasty. Dont even think of staying here

This motel was the most dirty, disgusting motel I have ever seen. The stairs outside were in bad shape. The room smelled horrible. The doorknob was broken and barely locked. The floors were black and filthy. The beds were so hard they felt like cement. We had to walk around in our flip flops. The mini fridge smelled gross. Thankfully...
