Great staff, easy check in. Great walking distance to boardwalk. Rooms were pretty small/cramped and the outside lights shines into the room at night and there’s no curtains, only shutters. Breakfast was okay.

The location was great and the manager was very nice. The breakfast was not great and the pool was a joke.
