I cannot say enough great things about this place. The location is unbeatable - you are literally steps to the beach and boardwalk. The staff is super friendly and go out of their way to help you out. They give you a discount if you pay in cash. They drove my boyfriend and I to the bus station as we came from NYC and did not have a car. They let you use their beach tags the day you check in AND the day you check out. They also let you use their pool and the bathroom in their lobby before check-in and after check-out so you basically get two extra beach or pool days if you want. On our last day, we decided we weren't ready to leave yet and asked if our room was available for one more day. It was and we ended up staying. They made the process so easy.
The rooms are simple with nice décor and very clean - we stayed in Room 323 (parking lot side, we weren't in the room enough to care about a view). Although we didn't use the kitchen at all, they supplied dishes, glasses and silverware to cook in addition to a mini-stove, fridge, sink and microwave. We don't have any children but they seem extremely kid friendly, for example: fish tank and caterpillar / butterfly garden in lobby, dvds, books and board games for free rental in the lobby, they give your kid a prize from the treasure chest on your last night there, etc. I would highly recommend this place to any of my friends and family. And they give you a cute mug with your name on it during checkout. The owner goes out of his way for many nice personal touches that make this place more than a typical motel.
Bottom line: If you have expectations of a glamorous five star hotel then you shouldn't go here. If you want to be next to the beach / boardwalk (with a clean room and friendly staff) and don't want to pay outrageous prices, you cannot beat this place.
