Very Good 8.0
Perfect location and super nice staff! Great two day stay. May be a bit overpriced for what you get, but the staff and proximity to Boardwalk perfect. Would stay again!

Fair 4.0
The price we paid ($380) for one night was not worth the room we stayed in. It was a last minute booking but that should not justify the mediocre condition of the hotel and room. We had to wait to be helped out during check in and out cause there was not anyone there. Gentleman who finally came was fairly nice. Our room was somewhat comfortable but there was hair in one of the beds, like they didnt change the sheets. I had to clean what looked like snot off the end table. There was no tissue in the holder. Noise level was good and the shower was decent. I could go on but not worth the small fortune I payed. This place is missing out on an opportunity to be one of the better places to stay because of their proximity to the Boardwalk.

Poor 2.0
Front desk clerk is incredibly rude. When we came in DURING our check in time he made us feel like a burden and like we were bugging him. Then, he had the audacity to berate us for missing his call while we were DRIVING and was asking what we’d do if our parents were calling us. Like dude, not your business at all, it was 6 hour drive to this hotel. Then, he forced me to move my car from a perfectly fine spot to a tight spot and I hit the car next to me and he said “it’s fine” ITS FINE??? No it’s not. Place is nasty and guy is rude. Don’t waste your money here.
