    Nothing! It was a dump!!!

    Everything! Rate, service, cleanliness, noise!

    Nothing!!!!!!

    Let me start by saying I would used Booked.net again,it was very helpful with hotels. There wasn't anthing to like about this hotel, There was no parking, it was very dirty inside, but out looked ok. I also booked for a king bed which I got a room with a full size bed.I Would stay do not stay there ever again. I would like to add that the Booked.net had a check-out time as 12noon but indeed it was 11am which I had to argue with the front desk and thank god I had the print out that said that. ( that was one of the biggest reason why I pick that hotel because we were coming to check -in late and wanted to sleep in the next morning)

    I liked how centrally located it was.

    It was not the cleanest and someone opened our door early the next morning.

  • Older travelers

    There was no closet in the room. There was no wash cloths or hand towels. No shampoo or lotion. Really mediocre place. Old marked and scuffed furniture. Door to toiler/shower didn't close due to toilet stuck out too far and blocked it.

    best place to see this motel is in your rear view mirror !

    Price and convenince of location.

    No towels, no coffee pot, poorly cleaned, front desk not very helpful.

  • Couple
    3.2

    The room was cheap and somewhat close to downtown.

    The grounds of the hotel were a mess, with overflowing trashcans and poor maintenance. There were people that apparently live at the motel that I would not want around my children!

  • Older travelers

    The desk clerk was exceptionally cooperative in trying to get us a quieter room off the main street.

    The area was generally noisy and a little seedy. There were 2 women right outside our room on the 3rd floor at 3:00 a.m. talking loudly. The sink in the bathroom was not clean. It had a yellow sticky substance in it.

  • Couple
    3.8

    The room was really dirty and was smelling really bad! Don't go there!!!!

  • Family with children
    3.8

    The only good thing about this hotel is the close proximity to downtown and the Boardwalk.

    The room had a foul, musty odor. When you tried to open the windows, they would fall back down closed - some of them you could cock sideways and get them to stay open. No shampoo provided. I asked the girl at the desk for some shampoo and she offered me more bars of soap to wash my hair with!? The street is noisy til 3 AM.

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    Nothing really

    I didn't like very much about it. The room had nothing to offer. Very old beds, old towels with cigarette burn marks and dark stains. The refigerator leaked all over the floor with a huge puddle of water that made it difficult to walk the room. No hair dryer and the tv had poor reception.
