I have been going to the Pavilion for 15 years and this year will be my 16th. Rooms are a good size for families of four, the pool service is excellent, parking is a little frustrating so plan ahead, and maid service is great. I've read other reviews and I must say this hotel is reliable, affordable, and CLEAN! It takes you right to the boardwalk and the beach. After the recent hurricane, they've remodeled. I assure you, this hotel is your best experience.

Room Tip: Choose third floor rooms with the view of the pool. These are the BEST and quietest rooms. Benches a...

We stumbled upon this lodge as we looked for a place that was affordable but had a good location for our extended weekend away with our 6 year old. The location was perfect! Two blocks from the boardwalk. Pricing was great too - but you get what you pay for. It's a very basic room with two double beds (I believe - trying to think back to the summer!), a bathroom (could have used a fan) and a fridge with a counter area to house any snacks or goodies brought along. Our one complaint was the lack of a microwave. Anytime we stay away from home, having the ability to heat up leftovers is a definite plus! I do believe Pavilion had microwaves to rent, but we didn't feel it was worth it for our short stay. The pool area is a bit small, but it's better than no pool at all! We also had the pleasure of being in town for fireworks, which could be seen from our room.

If you're looking for a budget-friendly place that has a great location, this is a perfect place. We've stayed in budget accommodations where you definitely are itching to leave, but this place was clean.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool

This was our 3rd summer stay in the apartments. They are always nice and clean and nicely decorated. You can't beat the location, no streets to cross to the beach, bike rental across the street on corner,(favorite with the kids), on site restaurant if needed, staff is always friendly and quick to resolve any issues that might arrive. The kids love the pool, and the front porch to sit out at night. There are tables near the pool we used for "picnic" lunches/dinners . I like the idea that we park the car for the week and walk or bike to all the activities going on. Looking forward to the 4th summer here as well!

Room Tip: If you have small children or older adults, ask for ground apartment, the second floor have steep st...

The location alone is worth the price. You don't ever have to cross a street to get to the beach & boardwalk. A real plus if you have small children! The rooms are average size and having a refrigerator is a plus. It is very clean and housekeeping does a great job. There are 2 nice areas where we could get take-out and enjoy our dinner by the pool where there are round tables with umbrellas. On the downside, there wasn't even a clock in the room! No tissues, small shampoos, or lotion either. Had to divert the AC from blowing right on us. We'll definitely be back though. Nothing's perfect!

Room Tip: The pool can be noisy. We were at the other end away from the pool and were glad we were.

Stayed on bottom level poolside room for midweek October getaway. Room was very clean with flatscreen tv and small fridge. Staff helpful and lots of coupon and informational brochures for restaurants and activities. This is NOT a chain hotel. It is a typical beachside motel with that shore "vibe" that may take a minute for some to appreciate. The location cannot be beat!

Room Tip: Poolside rooms may be a bit loud. For a quieter room choose the fountain view area.

Reviewed 26 September 2013

Many other reviewers have said basically the same thing. It was clean but very small. Did look as if it had new carpet and maybe fresh paint but otherwise it was a typical motel room. Had a small fridge and flat screen tv but the AC unit was literally right next to my bed. Like didn't need to stretch to touch it. Bathroom is also very small. Since the weather was pretty good we didn't need to spend much time in it. I reserved the Fountain View since it was the cheapest. Longer walk to the boardwalk and no elevator but they are upfront about that. Did not use the pool but it and the lounge area around it also looked small. Can't imagine what it must be like in-season. But as I said it was reasonable and clean. Basically, all I was looking for so no complaints and you couldn't beat the location to the boardwalk and beach. Parking is super convenient also.

Room Tip: Lack of elevator on the fountain view side does make a difference if you have any big luggage.
