The hotel was great and price was definitely right. The location is perfect because it is so close to everything like the Boardwalk, The Catalyst, Bars and good places to eat. I would definitely recommend.

We were there over the winter holiday and they wouldn't let us check in early. Our room wasn't ready so they assigned us to a different one. I think we were checked in and our too about 3:30. We got there a little before 3.
