Positive Reviews

An affordable stay

Guests are pleasantly surprised to receive a comfortable, enjoyable stay given the affordable hotel rates. They also like saving on the costs of meals by using the well-stocked kitchenettes.

Clean and well attended rooms

Guests consistently find the rooms clean, comfortable and well maintained. For example, the floors are not carpeted which they feel helps maintain a clean room when returning from the sandy beach. They find the hotel staff quick to provide necessities if one runs short in the room.

Great location

Tourists love the hotel's great location, close to the boardwalk and beach, which are accessible without stepping out into any traffic.

Negative Reviews

Not all rooms have a clear view of the ocean

Reviewers recall having a partial view, as opposed to a full view, of the ocean. They write that the room a guest resides in determines whether or not guests have an unobstructed view. They also claim not every room has a balcony.

Appliances need some maintenance

Guests find the appliances have problems that range from minor dents and lights that need a quick fix, to a fridge that does not work and is quickly replaced. The televisions are also found to be small.
