First, the positives: great location right on the boardwalk; the (double) beds were comfortable, the room was surface clean, and they allow dogs. The pool looked clean and nice. Now the not so good: the older woman at the desk was very rude, acting as though I greatly inconvenienced her when I asked what the amount was when she asked for my credit card. There was a $30 charge per dog, per night, which I never saw in the information (twice what we pay for boarding). The door was very hard to open; I was told to just kick it. The small fridge freezer was so frozen over it decided to defrost itself, causing water to leak out and me to slip and fall. One of the headboards fell off the bed. The ceiling was peeling, and paint job was incomplete. The gardens were neglected. With a little TLC and better customer service, much of this could be better. I'm no snob, and my favorite hotel is at another beach, with a funky, shabby-chic decor. This was shabby, without the chic.
