Newest first
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The room seemed to be clean. Smelled strongly of cleaning products. The owner replaced a lightbulb when asked but did not bring the bedside lamp for the other side of the bed as he said he would.
Cons:Noisy air conditioner, turned it off but there is no air circulation, got too hot, bed too hard, pillows too big = terrible night of no sleep
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:The studio was a decent size. The AC/heat is updated to a thermastat.
Cons:While it had a full kitchen there was nothing there to use for it. No pots/pans/plates/utensils/paper towel.....it was totally useless. Even if they had paper plates and bowls and plastic utensils it woulda been better. There isn't enough outlets. The kitchen was dirty...had a fine dust (sawdust?) all over. Floors were dirty. Ick! It's a very old building and it shows. I chose this place cuz it had great reviews but I don't see how after being there.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Guy up front was very nice. Had Direct Tv with many channels. Fridge.
Cons:Old, other visitors were a little sketchy but all was fine.
2.5 Bad
Pros:Rooms were tidy for the most part. Close proximity to boardwalk and other shopping.
Cons:Manager named Danny was very rude. Found bodily fluid stains on the headboard and when I asked for a different room he blamed the stains on me and my wife and yelled at us to check out if we didn't like the room. Extremely unprofessional.
9.0 Excellent
Pros:The beds were comfortable, the water hot, and the room clean.
Cons:The pillows were too big/hard.
