The location was fine. The ac unit was very loud. The TV did not work when we turned it on and we need a staff member to trouble shoot it to make it turn on. The office staff was very condescending to us about the problems blaming us for our ignorance and claiming surprise at the deficiencies.

Thank you for staying with us! We try our best to keep parking available for our guests. As you can imagine parking is hard to come by being a block from the beach! We promise you will always have a spot for your room!

Perfect spot for beach vaca

Pros: Great staff, nice room, good pool, short walk to beach.
Great experience. Short walk onto the boardwalk and beach. Kids had a great time in the pool during grownup downtime. Our room was a nice size, we only had 2 double beds because we booked at the last minute but there was plenty of space in the room. The folks at the front desk were SO NICE and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at the Forum.
