Stayed here for 4 days and I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for clean comfortable budget accommodation. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They didn't mind us in the pool at night time which was magical. It is right across the road from Dennys whic

This is an older motel in town...serviceable, but dated. Rooms are pretty small, but clean. Breakfast in the morning is s pack of danish and juice or coffee, but if you just need a place to crash for the night this is a better location than some of the places by the Boardwalk.

"We stayed in 117 upstairs near back. No problem with noise."
"Very close to the beach. Crowded parking lot, but always found a spot."
"Second floor seemed quieter."
"We needed adjoining rooms and was accommodated. The rooms also had nice, large high definition flat screen TV's, it was wonderful."
"If it is late at night and you are tired, check the windows. They leave the windows open, but the bug screens make them look closed. The room will be quieter if you close the windows."
