We stayed there several times. Each time, the situation became bad to worse. The carpet was so dirty, and we felt itchy in bed. Apparently, the change of management did not improve anything. We decided not to return there any more.

It was off season when we stayed and we were the only quests. The staff was very friendly.Breakfast was cereal, juice and bagels. The room and bath were both adequate in size and clean. Two beds and the sleep comfort was OK. We enjoyed the stay.

The front desk check in person was very cheery and efficient. The room was clean with wear and tear you would expect. They have a shuttle to take you to the beach which is about 2 blocks away. My advice - if you are disabled or have hip, back, or knee trouble this is not the place for you. Almost... More

Small property with great prices. We stayed a few nights and enjoyed it. We were on a multi generation family vacation and looking for a good location that was affordable.

Dated and ill maintained rooms. Very moldy smell as soon as you walk in. Front desk lady was super kind, understanding, and very accommodating. She did everything possible to find availabilities elsewhere for my family.

Was recently in the area for business and stayed here based on price and reviews. Being offseason, the price was very reasonable. Front desk woman was very friendly and welcoming.

Thank you for your honest feedback. I am glad that you find our staff very accommodating and helpful. Every winter, we do upgrades at our hotel to keep up with the wear and tear of the beach and we will most certainly update the curb appeal of the rooms.

The stay itself was good, the on-site offerings were good (laundry, pool). The beds were firm, but I like a good firm bed.
