Rooms outdated, small. It states breakfast is included but there's no breakfast. All they had was toast and bagles. Will not be going back. Spend a few more dollars and stay some where nicer. Board walk is 5 mins away.

The man at the front desk was helpful, not his fault. Very broken English. Got to our room, very dated and dengue. There was a crack house LITERALLY right next door with crack pipes and heroin in full swing. There are no locks or even doors for that matter at the main entrance. We saw a man snorting cocaine off... More

This place wasn't so bad to stay for a night minus the crappy area and neighboring outside. The bed was comfy, staff was nice and helpful, room was clean. I only rated a 3 star based on the comfy of bed and the nice staff. Other than that, it's better to find else where if you have family, couple date... More

The room was large and tidy but not clean, it had a mouldy smell and the bath tub was peeling paint. The pool amenities were dirty and we avoided it. The stair well and lift were filthy with a sticky hand rail. Breakfast was served in the office and only offered a few pastries, juice and coffee. The room over... More

I do not recommend this place to anyone. The Inn is surrounded by one room shacks full of meth heads. I was worried the whole time that our car was going to be broken in to. We got the hot tub room and it was so dirty looking I didn't even want to shower in it.

We thought we were in the twightlight zone. I'd rather walk on dirt than on these carpets. Bathtub was painted a couple of years ago (maybe 10) and the paint was peeling. I'm thinking of calling the health department and the better business Bureau. Wish I had seen reviews first! Thank God we only endured for one night.

The hotel was clean and quiet. It had air conditioning but with the window open it was a perfect temperature without it. The only time people woke us up was around the time to go to work, granted it was the middle of the week. The staff was very helpful in recommending places to see and the beds slept well.... More

After negotiating the dog droppings in the garden bed, we encountered the man at the desk...completely disinterested. The room was unpleasant....filthy carpet, no table, cramped bathroom, dirty corridors...and the room had an unpleasant musty odour. We quickly left and moved to another hotel. Most disappointing.

First the neighborhood felt like the hotel was in a bad part of town that you wouldn't feel safe to be in at night. The pictures from the web site looked entirely different! tiny window looking out over a seedy looking parking lot and another hotel. Tv didn't work. The clock radio didn't work. The sink was out by the... More
