I read some of this reviews after booking a room. I was worried about what I got myself I into. But when we arrived sure it was no 5 star hotel but it wasn't as bad as people reviewed it to be. It was so close to the water park and boardwalk we didn't have to move our car the...

The pictures were a lie! The pool was green and our rooms were completely outdated, HOT and sleazy. The entire set up of the rooms looked as if we were in a crack house. The walls had chipped paint which made me think we were all going to get lead poisoning. The carpets were not vacuumed or cleaned. The bathroom...

I didn't expect a 5 star hotel but OMFG! This place was run down, outdated and sleazy. Nothing was walking distance (within a block). The place was blocks away from the boardwalk, beach, arcade, food and drinks. I was lucky enough to get parking for my huge truck in the limited amount of parking spaces. I decided to leave and...

I recommend that nobody stays at this motel! Disgusting and just smells like mold. As soon as we checked in, we checked right back out. Definitely violates some health codes. I don't know how this place is still up and running. Even the office is dirty and that's the first thing you see when you walk in.

Me and my boyfriend decided to come down for a weekend. This was one of the most affordable places. Man at the counter was extremely nice and helpful. We are here after the season is over though, so it's not as if there were a ton of people to care for... The room is spacious, has a mini fridge, kitchen...
