We're a couple in our mid-50's, living in Annapolis, MD. We needed a place to stay in September to attend a function in Toms River. I remembered the Luna Mar from when I was a child, so we decided to take a chance on off-season rates, rather than stay in an expensive, big chain operation in Toms River. For about the same or less money, we had a room overlooking the Atlantic, a very congenial couple who own and operate the place for hosts, and a very, very clean room with not a hint of mold or cigarette smoke, or any oder at all. It was small, but had everything we needed. The complimentary coffee and bagles in the morning was a big plus, as it afforded an opportunity to meet some of the other guests and chat with the owners, a very nice way to start the day. By the way, the pool was open, although we did not take advantage of that.
I'm posting because I saw the post from the couple from NY, who complained that the place was dirty. The only way that is possible is if by mistake, they had gotten a room that had not been cleaned yet. All evidence during our stay showed that they are maticulus about maintenence, (They even cleaned our picture window every day of our stay), and had they complained to the owners, I am sure they would have solved the problem instantly, instead of saying nothing until later so that they had something negative to post.
