The reviews on TripAdvisor are misleading. There is only one Super 8 left. The other has been sold to Marriott and is being replaced. The hotel was very dirty, very very rundown, and disappointing after reading reviews. Hair from previous guests still visible in the room. Booked through Booking.com because that is where Trip Advisor rerouted me. I will be...

Hello, I've never had a worse experience from someone working in hospitality until I went to this motel. I was deceived, harassed, and even charged for staying the night when I didn't step foot in anywhere but the lobby. I was told by a customer service rep I called while I was still in the lobby that my reservation was...

We only stayed one night thankfully. The motel is old so you expect a little worn look. The floors were so dirty my kids feet were black after 20 minutes. The sheets were clean so that was a plus. Parking is horrible. But it is right down from the boardwalk.

The service is good and breakfast is good. But, the floors are dirty and towels are stained. I'm sorry that we had to lay your already stained towels on the floor, but it was so that our feet wouldn't get dirty again after washing as we walk to the bed. We rented two rooms and one had a jacuzzi, but...

This place is horrible. Bathrooms not clean or updated. Room smelled musty. The phones and Internet in our rooms didn't work. The front staff was indifferent and did not fix the problem. There is no place to eat breakfast in the lobby of this place and only one person can approach the breakfast bar at a time so people were...

This motel was rated relatively well within this price range so I thought I'd give it a try. My family and I needed to stay just one night to enjoy the Boardwalk. The short walk to the Boardwalk was definitely appealing. Pros: The beds weren't too bad. I'm a Tempurpedic sleeper so bad spring beds usually do a number on...

The room was large and clean. The reception was unwelcoming, the receptionist was very unwelcoming (worst person we met on our US trip). The reception area was dirty and as breakfast was served here we didn't eat it. This hotel is very basic, if you want the cheapest place then this is a bed for the night.
