There are a few great things like the hotel is right on the boardwalk, literally walk out the front door and you are on the beach. Down short distance is a great outdoor music venue that has live great music Wed. thru Sun. Very Fun! The hotel needs a lot of sprucing up. The rooms aren't very good and the safes in the rooms can be opened quite easily with a key thats at the front desk. So literally anyone can ope the safe when you aren't in your room. The lock thats for the guest on the inside of the door to your room can be opened by whomever is working there. I thought the whole point of locking it was for the guest to feel safe inside of their room, but I had mine locked and the maid used her key and walked right in. That felt alarming and so did the safe thing, doesn't really keep whatever valuables safe. The pictures on their website make the hotel look so much nicer than it really is. So yeah it was just ok. Really the location is the best part about it.

The staff was friendly and great. They even had beach chairs and an umbrella in the closet of our room for us to use. Clean beach towels were also available in the lobby.

Amazing location! They also provide an umbrella/chairs for the beach and plenty of beach towels. Staff was very nice. Transportation with Lyft/Uber/Circuit was super easy and affordable. Our flight leaving was pretty late and the hotel let us store our bags after checkout until we left for the airport which was a lifesaver.
