Only took a few minutes to Broadway (by car). You enjoy the beach, district, boardwalk and even the skywheel by walk from the motel. You can enjoy... More

Spent the weekend here for a little pier fishing. Perfect location. Could walk to 2nd Avenue pier and all the shops. Our room was oceanfront, but you couldn't open the window. It seems to have been updated recently. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Loved the fridge, microwave, closet, and huge tub. Can't beat it for the price. We'll be... More

The room was clean and comfortable, although I do wish they would update the bathrooms. In whole, I really like this place and hope the owners keep it open for a long... More

I was looking for a decent place on the ocean that wouldn't kill my wallet...Found it! For what it is, it's pretty darn nice. We had a great time and the room was just fine. Sure, the appliances could be replaced and carpet could definitely go...but it's great for the money compared to the other hotels in the area charging... More

The only thing going for it was the proximity to the beach and Boardwalk. The rooms were dingy. They were ok clean like visiting a 90 year old aunt clean but old. The only time the room gets really cleaned by the maids is when you check in. They fan your wash cloths and you get fresh coffee pot and... More
