2.0 Bad
Pros:Nothing good to say about this place.
Cons:Water pressure was bad, water temp. fluctuates, rooms are dirty, smell like cigarettes, out dated, place is falling apart, and service isn't that great either.
2.0 Bad
Pros:Bed was too big for room so you couldn't even get to the bathroom without climbing over the web. Spent $180 which didn't included continental breakfast. Room only had two towels and one little bar of soap. I can't help but few ripped off.
2.0 Bad
Pros:Location was the only good aspect of this motel.
Cons:Room was.small, dark and dingy, tape covering the holes in the door. No shades on lamps, noisey neighbors, bed wasn't comfortable. We would NEVER stay there again!!!!! DONT DO IT!!!!
5.7 Passable
Pros:Nice location was walking distance to the boardwalk abot a mile walk there, so we drove. The staff was polite and no deposit required. Has Smoking rooms, which is a major bonus, and pet ok.
Cons:Well bring your own bedding, the room was kinda cleaned but questions on bedding, I used my own. The police patrol the motel which I wasn't bordered although crime may be high, not sure. Homeless people around because of a 711 store across the street, but again not bothered by, I wouldn't recommend this motel for kids, because there's no pool, alot of weed smoke and potheads, and rooms are small. But if you're going as a couple and not super picky its not bad. I've stayed here before was about the same.
2.0 Bad
Pros:Absolutely nothing
Cons:The staff was rude, the room was the worst I've ever seen, the grounds were filthy and delapidated at best. People live at this dump. If I had to choose between sleeping in my car or renting a room at this motel I'd absolutely sleep in my car. Steer clear folks, it's that bad.
