Poor 2.0
I’m sure the hotel was fine, however due to covid 19....the pool & all amenities were closed, and the purpose of going was for my niece so she could swim....so I decided not to go..just to sit in a room....

Good 6.0
Overall good, cleanliness needs work
Courteous and friendly front desk staff, was a busy weekend. Hair in bathtub, hair and a little bit of blood on shower curtain, not a great impression on cleanliness. Fridge in room wasn’t working, not a big deal. Other than the cleanliness of the room (especially the bathroom) everything was good

Great Hotel, Great Location
Quite possibly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever experienced in a hotel. The location is incredible with a beautiful view of the water and boardwalk. When there was an issue with barking dogs on the floor, the staff were quick and attentive to solving the issue. Would definitely recommend.
