    First time at the Boardwalk. Usually stay at a smaller facility for the ambiance but traveling with kids this time and wanted a safe place to wander around after dark. This worked very well. Enjoyed the heated indoor pool and got a great Foot Massage from Fatima. Breakfast buffet had a nice variety of choices.

    Nice hotel, friendly staff.

    Very nice hotel with friendly reception and concierge staff. Restaurant staff in the morning could have been more attentive but overall would recommend staying here.
