4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Bed was hard as a rock.. only thing goos about this spot is location
Cons:Cleaner rooms ... not muggy, my room was non smoking .. but my quilt had burn holes in it
2.0 Poor
Pros:Pay a couple of extra bucks and stay somewhere else
Cons:Poor service, room moldy, air conditioner filter filthy, list goes on
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Proximity to beach and boardwalk
Cons:The most outdated, dirty and uncomfortable place I have EVER stayed at
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:The location is great not much else
Cons:The hotel itself is probably 60 years old with little to no updates. The staff is not very friendly and they have a no visitor rule; they charge 20 per person per night after two this includes children. The pictures featured are deceiving such as the bathroom being much smaller (and damaged) than the picture. The owners are unfriendly and hover over guests, making sure they follow the rules.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Convenient location. Booking online was easy. Cable TV.
Cons:Couldn't open/close the front door without slamming because the wood was warped. TINY bathroom. Really loud A/C that barely blew any cold air. Uncomfortable bed.
5.7 Fair
Pros:Super close to the beach. Had the facilities we needed (fridge, microwave, bed and shower). Lowest price available.
Cons:Super small, pool was gross, looks NOTHING like the photos. Short summery: perfect for a dirt cheap beachside motel. If you're a family, save up a few more bucks and go somewhere better.
