Location was ok, room is dated and half the place caught on fire which is scary. Pretty expensive for what you get but pool was really nice and indoors. Staff was nice, bed was really really worn out to the point of a large pit on one side. But overall it was ok, no bugs so thats good.

Convenient to the Boardwalk and beach. Friendly staff during check in. Outside of building has fire/smoke damage. The door to our room did not properly fit, everytime we had to return to our room it felt like doing a forced entry, had to ram my shoulder into the door in order to get it to open. Zero curtains so our room was lit up all night. The carpet was torn and filthy, we had to keep our shoes on. Mattresses must be as old as the building, huge uncomfortable dents on both sides. Nice updated flat screen television mounted on the wall. Room surprisingly had a separate bedroom with another Queen bed so nice for privacy for the adults. No TV in the other room. Nice microwave and refrigerator in our room. In a separate building there is an indoor pool and large spa/jacuzzi. Definitely a plus although very dated.
