Positive Reviews

Desirable location

The hotel is located directly on the beach along the popular Boardwalk with its many shops and restaurants, and guest also enjoyed the fact that they could walk to many attractions such as Ripley's Believe It or Not or the SkyWheel.

Affordable accommodations

The hotel was stated to be rather affordable compared to other ones in the vicinity, and guests appreciated the fact that they had a fridge, a microwave and air-conditioning in their rooms. Furthermore, they found the small pool to be a pleasant addition when not in the mood for a dip in the ocean.

Pleasant staff

Guests found the staff to be friendly and very accommodating as special requests and questions about the local area were met with professionalism and efficiency.

Negative Reviews

Outdated interior

While offering historic and unique charm, most guests found the hotel to be in need of some upgrades especially within the rooms. They noted that there were scuff marks on the walls, the furniture was quite worn and the wiring appeared to need some work.

Housekeeping hit or miss

While many guests found their rooms to be adequately cleaned, several reported having a bad experience, as they encountered sticky floors, cobwebs, dust, dirty sheets and bugs in their rooms.

Insufficient parking

Even though the hotel advertises ample parking opportunities and indeed has a separate area behind the property, several guests pointed out that you might have difficulty securing a spot. They noted that there just aren't enough spots to guarantee a parking space per room, so some guests have been blocked in by others on occasion.
