As a beach/ocean lover, I was pleasantly by this beachfront property. The beach itself was gorgeous as was the view of the Boardwalk and Pier. Loved hearing the crashing of waves at night. Great location. Great customer service. We absolutely loved the retro decor, as well. Looking forward to returning. Oh, and we lucked out with 72 degree weather!

Dream Inn was truly amazing and a must stay. We were on level one and our view from our room was perfect. So relaxing and still enough privacy to feel comfy. Beds were super clean and pillows comfortable. Our girls 2 and 8 enjoyed the shower and pool area. Fire pit area was my fav in the evening!

We totally enjoyed a very relaxing vacation at the Dream Inn. We had an excellent view of the beach and wharf. We loved the meals which included breakfast and dinner. The location was perfect for parking the car and walking to the boardwalk, wharf or down West Cliff drive.

This hotel is perfect for families! It is located a short walk from the Warf and the boardwalk and since it is right on the beach, you don’t need to move your car once it’s parked! The hotel gives you the resort feel with a pool side waitstaff who serve food and drinks. We had a blast!
