For $300 (including taxes) a night this Howard Johnson's was a huge disappointment. We expected a beautiful , well cared for ,prime, ocean front ,boardwalk property. What we got was a run down hotel with rundown rooms. Even the toilet paper holder was about 20 years old. We saw two cockroaches go under the bed as soon as we arrived. There were ants in the efficiency "kitchen" area. We stored our food on top of the closet.
Upon leaving we stripped the beds (always do) and found what seemed to be human excrement on the side of the mattress. (So disgusted!)
The elevator needs some updating. The floor was spongy and gross. The balcony was also in need of improvements. Even though the pool was clean it was too cold to swim in. The best part about it was that it was on the boardwalk.
Why didn't we leave? Because it was on boardwalk and it was Bike Fest 2017 with no other boardwalk rooms available anywhere.
Go find another (clean&updated) hotel if you want to enjoy your stay. More
