      This place is like staying in jail! The beds are like jail cots, walls have filth all over them, black mold in the bathroom & shower. The staff is not personable and you are lucky you can find someone. On site parking is a joke…came out to my vehicle surrounded in trash cans & trash bags. City trash threw garbage cans at my truck causing damage. When I approached the hotel desk staff I was told “oh well, we have city trash that’s where they pick it up!” Never again!

    • 2.0.Poor

      This property is a no frills hotel that is in walking distance to the boardwalk/beach. Last year, I would have said it was family friendly. This year, my nice got sick on the first night of our stay with a fever sore throat and runny nose. The next morning, she had the same symptoms. As she is not old enough to have gotten a COVID vaccine, I decided to check out and get her home. The hotel is trying to charge me for the nights I did not stay. The manager, Dawn, who also manages another property next door, refused to come speak to me in person claiming she could not leave the desk. What she did tell me is that I would be charged for the nights I didn't stay. I'm now contesting the charge with my credit card company. This hotel is fine on the surface, and seems to be run by pretty savvy college students. However, when problems arise, you are treated like dirt by management. Dawn refused to tell me the name of the hotel owner, claiming he lived out of state. She refused to come to meet me and I couldn't meet her as my 9 year old niece was upstairs. Awful service, horrible customer treatment.

      We only stayed two days and our room was never cleaned or change of linens. Attendant never apologized for the screw up, extremely up set. If this represents management I would never come back. Sorry I just sent a nice review to soon.

      Completely disappointed. No running water in the bathroom sink. Upon check-in I reported the issue with the very nice girl at the front desk and she said should would report it. I still had no running water in the bathroom sink when I checked out.

      Nice last minute trip with the family. I wish the staff was more informative. They checked us in and I had to ask what way to the room, pool info, and so on. Overall it was clean and worth the money.. we will be back!

      The property was old, the room we reserved opened up to the street so noise would have been a big problem if the window A/C units weren't so loud. The outer screen door didn't close all the way, the paint was pealing throughout the room, the kitchen counters had been painted with a blue semi-gloss and were sticky and gross. The window curtains didn't cover the entire window limiting privacy. There was a mold smell in the room. The beds were lumpy and one of them leaned to the right. When we arrived there was no pull out couch, only a normal couch and they instead gave us air mattresses that had holes and told us to just sleep another person on the couch. We received a replacement air mattress that also deflated. I was made t feel as though they did us a big favor on the second day by replacing the couch with an actual pull out couch even though this what was promised when we booked. They refused any sort of refund for the first night, even though there wasn't a bed for two of my children. The staff was rude and impatient and had no interest in dealing with my need for a bed for my children to sleep on in their hotel. It was all absurd.

      Not worth the money

      I was disappointed in the advertising it was so misleading. Once I got in the room I wanted to walk out. The doors and floors were soo Unleveled it was horrible. The toilet didn’t flush and no one was there to answer at front desk. I had no towels and used my own.

      We have stayed here before and would recommend to anyone looking for clean an friendly place to stay when visiting Ocean City, NJ. The use of parking and beach tags for arrival and departure days are greatly appreciated.

    • 6.0.Good

      This is an older property where the owner's have elected not to modernize to any significant degree. That said the rates charged are reasonable given the location and time of year. Since we only slept in the room and departed we cannot be that critical. The ability to park early and leave a bit later was a big plus. Staff were friendly and helpful. The outside balcony was a plus as it allowed us to have coffee and relax in the AM before going about our "buisness."
