The AC/Heater had a terrible rattle that woke me up at 5am. Otherwise the property is quite nice.

Took for ever to park and check in. We paid for a suite and our view was the side of someones house, looking right at their driveway. The fan in the bathroom did not work. The ceiling floors were so thin we could hear every footstep above us so we didnt sleep. We tried watching tv and we could get no stations. It appears it was all internet based but the local channels would not load. Can't check out in room. Won't stay again.

Arrived for my reservation and this property was closed for renovation. What a nightmare with dealing with Travelocity about this. This is more. Problem with Travelocity and not he hotel itself since I was unable to enter the property that I had booked.

The property is listed as open and available. I booked this reservation months ago, showed up and it’s totally closed and fully under construction. We had to look for another hotel farther from the boardwalk. Both hotel and Expedia’s error.
