9.7 Wonderful
Cons:It was a little run down but clean
3.4 Poor
Pros:Fantastic location right across from the boardwalk.
Cons:No coffee before 8:00 trashcans in parking housekeeping came in the two days we we're there....facility is run down.
5.4 Fair
Cons:The neighbors were partying all night and we tried to call the front desk but our phone did not work. We then called the front desk from cell phones and no one was available. Incredibly restless night. We spoke with them and they quieted down but certainly no staff available and functionality in room limited.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:They didn't have a queen when i made my reservation that's what i booked so they upgraded us to a king at no charge and offered to give us better rates when staying with us again.
Cons:The fan in the bathroom was super loud. Ran out of toilet paper in the room halfway through the night.
0.0 Poor
Pros:It was right in front of the beach.
Cons:Not at all what I expected, walls were very thin and we did not get a good night sleep, we could hear people on both sides of our room and on top of our room.
8.3 Very good
Pros:The reviews weren't kidding when they said it was across the street from the boardwalk! less than five minute walk. Beautiful sunny day made the motel's ocean mural so pretty. I was only there for a day and it was a 15 minute walk to the Pacific Ave where there were stores, restaurants and Catalyst (where we saw my boyfriends favorite band D.R.I). overall great experience. If you're not picky and just want a place to crash, this is for you!
Cons:nothing really
