Although we didn't encounter roaches (that we know of) there is nothing in this joint that works correctly. The front jacked up the price of our stay $20 over what had been agree upon when I booked the stay at the front desk.. Had I known then what I know now I would have tried the other Econo-Lodge in Somers Point, NJ which is way more convenient to Ocean City and a minuscule amount more. On top of the 30% rate increase thrust at us, the room we were put in was directly across from the hotel dumpster (oh, joy!) If we hadn't need the room right then and there we would have run and run fast. The air conditioner was broken to boot. When we complained the management (aka owner as these are franchises) tried to convince me that it was working. Finally swapped out with one taken from a store room. It blew mildewy air and only worked at max settings.
The staff they "hire" look like it operating as indentured servitude; crammed into on of the guest rooms as lodging because they work them from sun-up to well into the night (saw same guy work well past midnight and back at work at 6 am). Don't go down the same road as us--better to sleep in the car in a Wal-mart parking lot.
