The staff was rude, the room was the worst I've ever seen, the grounds were filthy and delapidated at best. People live at this dump. If I had to choose between sleeping in my car or renting a room at this motel I'd absolutely sleep in my car. Steer clear folks, it's that bad.
It's walking distance from good restaurants and boardwalk and couple miles from downtown. Very close to the university also
Cockroaches in the room, bugs that bites during the night, couldn't regulate water in the shower
This hotel was not at all what was reflected in its listing. Yes, it had a king bed (with cigarette burns in the spread), but very little room around it. There was a hole punched in the bathroom door, the blue counters has ugly white caulking in all the corners. Outside amenities included 33 gal garbage cans on each of the walkways, anti-jimmy plates on the door, a clientele that immediately caused my fiance to say that she would NOT step out of the room alone, the aroma of pot smoking in the air, and the gate to Ocean St having a heavy chain and padlock. I found it totally unacceptable and demanded the reservation be cancelled (after a 1/2 hr arguement) and moved to another motel though because of the last minute arrangements we incurred significant additional costs. The room was nothing like the posted photos or the pamphlets in their lobby.
Wasn't looking for the four seasons, but it's not as good as it looks in computer! Rooms are tiny and a.c. was loud. Got questioned when asked for extra towels!!!
The mattress was old; the room and everything in it was old. There was no elevator. The rate was cheap so all the young drunk kids get a room there and screamed at each other until 2:00 in the morning. At that time another guest came out and screamed at them to shut up and called the police while standing in front of my window. I didn't take a shower because I just wanted to get the hell out of there.
The staff was friendly, the walk to the boardwalk was only about 15 minutes, you can leave the car parked and walk around as long as you don't mind a 1-2 mile walk each direction.
Besides being bare bones (no provided towels, no furniture aside from beds, no covers on the light fixtures) the rooms were disgusting. The entire motel is run down and the room stunk, the bed sheets had debris in them when the blankets were first pulled back, and the walls were covered in graffiti. I would never have agreed to pay almost $100 for the room had I seen it prior to swiping my card. Pay a little extra to stay somewhere else. The kindness of the staff doesn't clean the bedding or get the horrendous smell out.
Not a good value for the money. It was very run down. Not at all what I expected for the money I paid.
Close to Beach/Boardwalk
The chipping paint, the noise, overpriced, (spoke with others who paid $89.00!) not enough towels, kleenex on request only, no continental Breakfast as listed, that we knew of, room not available at check-in time, the photos on the website are deceiving. The rooms are not at all attractive! This motel needs work!
dirty, broken plumbing, very run down, internet photos very deceiving,, I would not have stayed there after seeing room if I had any time to change hotels.
ease of location
we unknowingly received a room facing the main road and it was very load.
NOTHING.It is yacky,dirty,the paint is coming off of the walls.Yacky people around the hotel and in it.I Will never go there again!NEVER!!!
Same as above
