    The room was decent and clean. Good location; across the street from the boardwalk. The staff was friendly and helpful and offered free parking. I would stay here again. They apparently offer a free breakfast but I left before it was served.

    Unfortunately we do not have an elevator, however we do have rooms on the ground floor, so there would be no stairs between the parking lot and those rooms.
