Owner was super friendly and at front desk during check in. Great location across from the beach. Not sure if this is being used as a low income hotel from the state but here are some weird things going on there.

This is my second time staying at this motel during the off season, first time was a two night stay, this time just one night. This is your typical beach side motel, it’s not really meant for anything more then a place to change clothes and sleep. I like staying here as it is right across from the beach, close to the boardwalk attractions and budget friendly during the off season. I was upgraded to a larger bed room this time as I had only booked a standard single bed room (double bed). The only issue I had with my stay was the sheets looked like they hadn’t been laundered well but I didn’t feel the need to ask for them to be changed. Decent value for the money.

The room was horrible. Wall air conditioner that was so loud, you could see daylight coming through the entrance door, window curtains barely hanging on the rod and no matter how much you tried to tuck it in on the sides, no luck! No phone in the room. Guests in the room above were sooooo loud until 4 am and if we wanted the manager to correct it, we would have had to walk to the front office since there's no phone in the room. In general, the room was extremely small, old decor and dirty. Never again!!

Bathroom details are important.

The rooms are super small, and if you pick a room with only a shower stall, bring a shower caddy. There is no place to put soap, much less yourself. The staff is helpful and ever present. They do get a lot of large groups of noisy teens. Our room had no phone, or television remote. The location of the hotel is great because of its proximity to entertainment.
