This is the best hotel we've stayed in near the boardwalk. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's convenient, affordable, clean, friendly and safe. Thanks, front desk, for all of your help above and beyond your regular duties! We will be back, soon.

This hotel is located right at the boardwalk. It has parking, is clean, comfortable and the welcome was friendly and efficient. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. We enjoyed our short stay and would recommend it.

Perfect location. Good service and value for the price. We will return to this hotel next year. Right across from the Boardwalk. Walked every where including the pier. I think 200 words is not necessary to review hotels.
