We stayed a week for school vac in April, using Hotwire for an ocean view room ($48). We got there and I read reviews after the fact as HW doesn't tell you where you're going till after you book and pay. I was leary about some negative reviews, but the place was paid for and the rate cheap enough that if it was NG, we could just take the hit and leave.
We were pleasantly surprised and found that a mere $20 upgrade gave us ocean view suite with full kitchen, this unit for a total of $68 a night was great. Yeah, the shower did drain slow, and yes the parking lot was a little hike, but for this price on the ocean in a clean place it was easy to take.
Also concerned about area security and spoke to several MB cops on the BW. Always there in day and visible, they advised to keep to BW area, avoid side streets, especially at night and it would be fine. Did same and all was fine. Couple of pan handlers on beach who left with stern "no" or simple eye contact avoidance.
I've been to ocean front hotels up and down east coast from FL to ME and this was the best value that I remember.
