On a East coast car tour with family, and as leaving NYC late on day one (29 JUN) of the trip, I thought Atlantic City, Ocean City or Cape May would have one nights accommodation. Not so lucky it seems.
90% want min two nights, or well over 500 bucks a night (4 adults). The ones that are nearly affordable, are flea pits and come with grave warnings here on Travel Advisor & other forums (but a very funny read- sorry to those who had to experience it however!)
The idea was to head southish as heading to DC in a long roundabout sort of a way, but will have to revisit our itinerary as I really dont want to be driving more than 3 hours as we don't get out of NYC until well after 3 pm on the sat arvo. Any clues or tips on 'non flea pits' any where from Atlantic City down to Cape May for a family of 4 adults that does not cost me a 4th mortgage for an overnighter?
