    No breakfast served. WiFi did not work. Bed was comfortable. Room was very clean, a big plus.

    More seating accommodations. One bench, mostly under the hanging clothes, was inadequate. The bed was a bit too high to offer comfortable seating (fine for sleeping - just not for sitting).

    The location was perfect, 5 minutes walk to the boardwalk. The bed was also incredibly comfortable!

    The curtains were dirty and the TV didn't work but we didn't spend much time in the hotel so it didn't ruin the trip.

    Nothing. Staff was horrible. Room was dirty. Got locked out my room at 1:30am in the morning upon returning from a music gig. No one was at the front desk nor did the phone number posted get picked up. No one showed up until 8:45 the next morning.

    Everything as horrible about this trip. I had to find another hotel at 1:30 am just to get a couple of hours of sleep. When I informed the attendant in the morning she was rude and confrontational.

    Walking distance to the beach and all Boardwalk sites.. parking was tough but is expected near the beach.. I will definitely come back.. highly recommended

    Just the parking but management was kind, courteous and helpful, so no points knocked off for this small detail

    Front desk staff

    Dirty floors, ancient microwave that reaked of popcorn, paper thin walls, very loud outside, exhaust fumes from cars backed in enters your room.
