      Needs a little TLC

      It is located close to everything, the bed is comfortable and the guy who checked us in was friendly. However, the place in general feels very well used. It was over priced, the bedside lamp and coffee maker in the room didn't work and it felt dingy. The bed felt clean but the bathroom door handle was sticky and the paint, furniture and microwave were all pretty beat up.

      Ok for one night stay

      Pros: friendly staff, noon check out, parking was literally right outside our room, comfortable bed Cons: old facility with rusted door, chipped paints everywhere, free wi-fi didn’t work but when it worked for a brief time, it was super slow so virtual unusable

      Half of the Inn was across the street which was fine. There was a great chinese food restaurant literally next door. It was quiet. 5 minute drive to Boardwalk. Floor un room was dirty, and cofee maker was broken.

      The front desk help was great, however I was not told ahead of time that there would be a $30/ night charge for my dog, the room was small. the pillows were like bricks, the dog area was pathetic. It was okay nothing to write home about and breakfast was not included they don't serve breakfast as far as I can tell. good location . Expedia charged me differently than I was looking at so that part was annoying

      The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and quiet and just the perfect temperature. The bed was very comfy and so I slept very well.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Awful

      The room was run down and dirty. It is in an ok part of town but with the paper thin walls it was very loud! Parking is awful all of the spaces are compact so we had to climb in thru the rear of our car to get in be because we were boxed in on both sides. The bed was terrible the pillows were like cardboard. The shower was the tiniest I have ever seen in a hotel. I never ever write bad reviews but someone needs to see this to save themselves $350 for one night!! So insanely over priced!
