I was looking for a last minute hotel for a mini week get away. I wanted to stay on the boardwalk, yet most places were either booked or much more than I was looking spend. A friend of mine suggested the Shoreham, said she knew of a few people that stay there every year. After reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant. I looked at several other hotels, motels, and condos, And finally just decided to take a chance and book at the Shoreham. I booked king oceanfront room. I prepared myself for the possibility of a complete dive, as many boardwalk hotels are. But I must say, I wasn't disappointed. The location could not have been better. We had arrived early and were able to check in by 10:30 am. The parking lot is small and secure, right behind the hotel. We had a 3rd floor, side front room, so there were two windows in the front, one on the side, and one in the bathroom. All from which you can see the boardwalk and the ocean. The room was clean and bright. There was a window AC unit, which worked very well, small refrigerator w/small freezer, TV , closet, just your basics. A simple room is all we needed. We are never ones to spend our vacation in the room for longer than we need to be. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar beneath the hotel has great food and drink. When heading out at night, we could hear the noise from the restaurant on the first floor, but the boardwalk is a busy place, it's part of the excitement of staying on the boardwalk. There were a few cons, the biggest one was the stairs.. I'm an active person, but carrying the luggage up was a task, otherwise stairs don't bother me much. Other cons, the comforters are definitely outdated, the floors are a little slanted, no coffee maker, and the power went out while using my hair dryer (called the front desk and they corrected the problem quickly). Overall, however, the pros outweigh the cons. Bottom line is, if you are looking for an affordable, clean, simple place on the boardwalk, the Shoreham is a great place to consider. If you are looking for frills and luxury, this is not for you.
