This is just another aging, rundown Jersey Shore hotel, well past its prime. I can overlook the sand everywhere... it IS on the beach... but the shower looked disgusting. The toilet with its "sanitized for your protection" wrapping on it hadn't been flushed from the last person who used it. Half the light bulbs were burnt out. Website says there's...

Dear traveller, Thank you for sharing your review. We understand your stay was clean overall except for some issues with the toilet and some maintenance items.

Basically, we were on the boardwalk without the view. This is, by far, the cleanest room we've stayed in at the shore during the season. We stayed during the week so the rate was amazingly reasonable. The room was clean and the staff is friendly. We would stay here again, no doubt. Another bonus is how they hook you up...

Pro's Close to beach Discount beach passes Manager was nice Con's Cancellation Policy Should fix up roof top could be nice Should replace and fix a few things in bathroom door wasn't hung properly, previous guest apparently melted a/c cover, shower could probably use replacing, toilet paper holder bar missing. Bottom line: It's a shore motel.

Needs some updating and some paint. The beachfront rooms were a lot nicer then the others but still could use some work. The outdoor deck was nice but also could use some updating. If I need to visit seaside height I would look to this hotel.
