Don't Due It.

Pros: Nothing
Reserved a room for 2 nights for a wedding (Thursday - Sat) and arrived very late (12;30 AM). The room was across the street from the main hotel (not a resort), in the motel buildings. The room was awful, small, damp, dirty, floor was wet. I told the front desk that we could not stay there and was informed that he had no other rooms and if we left I would I may forfeit my deposit . I recently got my CC bill and yes I did not get deposit back and in fact got charged for the 2nd night . I have traveled close to 3000 nights in my career and this has never happened. Upon calling the hotel and inquiring, the manager would not return phone calls and when I finally got a hold of her she was rude and un-apathetic and told me I should have stayed and they would have worked something out the next day. The charges stood. . The hotel was not as advertised or certainly worth a 2-4 star rating. The people at Travelocity have been great but the manger was rude to them as well, not Travelocity's issue. I guess I will call my credit card company next.

Good location and facilities. Pleasant staff.

Pros: location, amenities.
Cons: Housekeeping needs to get their act together. Plumbing needs an upgrade.
Location: Right at end of boardwalk, short walk to beach.
On the plus side, we enjoyed the nice warm pool while we waited for our room. Location was great, near end of boardwalk. Room was clean, bed was comfy. Staff was great. Was surprised off season there were so many people waiting to check in to rooms. It did not appear to be at capacity. Most places are ready way ahead of the the check-in time listed, but after sticking around one cold day I realized it was probably due to housekeeping which seemed very unorganized and loud. Room was a bit cramped especially for 4 adults. Not enough bedding for 4 which was discovered when we pulled out the sofabed at 11PM but they quickly resolved this. Plumbing needs upgrade. Showers go hot and cold. But overall, we did enjoy our stay here. Just expected a little more for the money.

Staff not helpful.

There are 5 buildings & front desk is across the street. Difficulty in finding my room was proven to be not just me when I found a couple & their young daughter struggling to find theirs at 10pm! Staff is not helpful! Should at least lead guests to their building in golf cart or have a printed map! Something! Wasn't even told of services or check-out time. Room was stale smelling and covered with thin film of dust. No tissues. One bar of soap.

I am so sorry you had this experience with us. We do give out little maps and explain where the room is located at time of check in. Also, all the rooms have been painted and cleaned thoroughly. All of the rooms on both sides of the street are fresh. I would be happy to speak with you if you would like to call. Otherwise, I hope you will return and give us another try.
