A room was booked through booking.com by mistake by a teenager. We were able to cancel the room right away and I thought everything was fine. But, then I got a message stating that the full amount for the room had been charged so I called booking and their email they sent had said if it was cancelled before midnight...

The hotel owner/ staff was very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to help me out. The room was clean, could use a little bit of spackle and slight repairs, nothing major. The real value in this hotel is the location- very close to Convention Center, barely a block away. A Rite Aid is a block away, there...

I booked my room 4 months in advance so I could have the room I always get. When I arrived I was booked in the wrong room and it did not even have enough beds. It had one! No other rooms were available. The so called manager blamed it on a new receptionist that didn't know what she was doing...

The last couple of reviews really had me concerned about my stay (I booked a month earlier), but luckily I had a good experience. It's called Dawn & Nova because there are two buildings, we were in Dawn. The rooms are dated, but met our needs of a place to sleep and shower. They were quite spacious and a maid...

“This place is awful and I will never return. The staff is rude and they do not care about the guests at all. Once they have your money, they own you and make everything impossibly difficult.”

“If you don't like steps, you don't want a 3rd floor, but if you don't like people above you the 3rd floor is good and the view is great to the boardwalk and ocean. bring your own blow dryer.”

“If you're going with a small group, (no more than 3) and dont mind beach noise, REQUEST ROOM 2! It's a kitchenette with a king bed and a sofa bed. It is the corner room on Ocean and being on the second floor has a great extended sun deck. GREAT for people watching.”
