Not cool

The place was a dump with bugs. Luckily I brought my own sheets and plastic to cover the bed along with flip flops for the shower. This was ok. We Expected it. I am not 100% sure if what I killed on the headboard was a bed bug or just something from outside. Great proximity to the beach so we dealt with it. I also put our bags in large trash bags and kept them off the floor just in case. What got me was the fact that they charge their guests for parking. This is absurd!! Then, they give you a hard time about it and try to get you to park on the street so they have more space because they also allow the public to park their for a higher rate. Money hungry!!! Inconsiderate to their paying guests. AND then, we were blocked in so we were forced to walk back to the boardwalk for dinner. God forbid we want to get our car back out to drive to a restaurant without a hassle or hour wait.

Sorry but this is a misrepresentation of what and who we are. We are so close to the central boardwalk that we have managed parking lots to assures first that guests have parking. We additionally have other parking lots that we do use for public parking however guest spots are always assured! Guests can always get to their cars. As for your other issues we can rely on the many positive reviews. We take great pride in what we present our beds are already protected with bed sacks so that is simply untrue, the remaining representation speak to your personal affinity for the issues you are complaining of when traveling. . Unfortunate that you must characterize a small seasonal family owned business in this manner. Thanks

Good affordable option

Pros: I really liked the private patio with pool. Very close to boardwalk and beach (8 min walk).
Cons: The continental breakfast OK. Would be nice to have juice or fruit. The rooms are a little outdated - could use better lighting and more outlets.
Location: The location was great - 2 blocks or 8 min walk to beach & boardwalk. Also, plenty of good restaurants nearby. I recommend the Patio Bar.
We stayed here for a long weekend in August 2016. We did not want to drive far (easy 2 hr drive for us) and there are no chain hotels close to the beach. Your choice is either a small motel or rent a house. Most house rentals require you to stay at least a week, so this hotel fit our needs. The rooms could use an upgrade, but were clean and comfortable. Would be nice to see a little more attention to detail: a towel rack by the sink for a hand towel; a hook on the back of the bathroom door; outlets by the beds for phones; outlets and better lighting by the mirror in the room so that you can do your hair/makeup if someone is in the shower. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were not spacious, but the patio was like an outdoor living room. The hotel staff was very accommodating. I stayed here with my 2 girls and my mom - we had adjoining rooms. I would stay here again.

Gross

Smelled of urine, TV didn't work, no lock on bathroom and couldn't close it. And if you locked the door from the inside when you left your key (not a digital card key) did not work and you got yelled at by the staff as this was common knowledge.
