We stay at the Port-O-Call each year immediately after Labor Day and generally we have a great vacation. Prices are still high at this time, however. We see more wear and tear each year, which is to be somewhat expected. Haven't seen the manager out and about.....the previous manager, Don B., was always talking with the guests and making sure they had a great stay.....even saw him helping older people with their suitcases, etc. He always had a smile and was readily available. The hotel (along with almost all the businesses on the boardwalk and downtown) employ foreign youth to work for the summer and into the early fall, however, they hardly speak a word of English which makes it almost impossible to ask for anything. Therefore, the regular employees have to take up their slack which certainly isn't fair to them. We usually don't eat at the restaurant for breakfast or lunch. For breakfast, try Uncle Bill's Pancake House which is just a short 5-minute or less drive from the hotel...excellent breakfasts! We still feel the Port-O-Call is a great hotel - they just need to upgrade some things. Can't beat the location.
