Even tho it was an ocean block hotel you could see the ocean which was nice. Also the rooms looked exactly like the picture the beds were really comfortable and the bathroom was nice. They also provided a lovely amount of soap. The location was perfect because it’s right across from wawa.I would definitely stay here again.

Went for a long weekend with a friend. Side beach view was plenty since it was fall and ended up raining. Walked to breakfast and seafood restaurant across the road. Room was nice and it was clean. Refrigerator was big, staff really nice.

This was my first time staying at this hotel and my experience was fantastic. Vickie and her staff are amazing and were very friendly. Vickie gave us a quick tour of the hotel along with any recommendations for activities we could do in the area upon our arrival. Located right next to beach in a quieter area and the balcony view is very nice. The added mini fridge and microwave in the room was really the icing on the cake for me. This is an older hotel that could use some upgrades, but I assure you the place was clean top to bottom.

Place was clean, such friendly staff. And the fee is absolutely stunning. Check in is a breeze. Can’t wait to be back. Staff was always cleaning it seemed whenever we were coming or going. Bus stop right at the end of the street. Easy parking and all in all good people

I have been staying here every summer since 2014. It is a nice clean and safe place to stay. Vickie, Cheryl and their entire staff are awesome. Some say it is outdated but for the price, location and amenities, it is an awesome place to stay. Looking forward to next years visit.

The best thing about this property is the location! It’s perfectly located right on the beach ocean front, and 4th floor balcony has gorgeous views. The beach is only steps away, and the hotel gives free vouchers daily for beach chairs, which is appreciated. The hotel needs upgrades to make guests more comfortable. The mattresses are old, worn, and sagging in the middle. We woke throughout the night and every morning with our backs and hips hurting. Twice I woke in the middle of the night with my side and hips fallen asleep and numb. The kitchen & bath are deteriorating; cabinets falling off the wall, refrigerator door duct taped, old, bent utensils, stained dishes & not microwave safe, stove drawer bent & sticking out, plumbing fixtures in the shower are loose and coming off the wall, baseboard heater dated & dirty/rusty. I can see by other reviews the hotel is aware of these things. The very bright balcony lights stay on all night, so you can’t sleep with the curtains/door open to see/hear the ocean. The smoking area is right next to the main back door ramp. Not really ideal for non-smokers. Front desk staff interactions were perfunctory and lacked interest or enthusiasm. Our stay was enjoyable because we were directly on the beach and we made the best of it. A hotel that is owned by a large property manager such as The Carousel Group should invest in upgrades and renovations. For $300 a night you would expect better. I really want to stay here again, so I hope some improvements are made in the off season.

The hotel is 100 feet from the waves. We had an oceanfront suite on 3rd floor with a clear view of the beach and beyond. You could hear the waves!. Wife is injured and can't walk, so room was perfect for her, and building has elevator and handicap ramps. Staff and guests were friendly and we got no surprise charges. Building is older and somewhat worn out, but this was at the end of the season of what I suspect was continuous use since June. Example: a few of the electrical outlets were so worn that you couldn't really plug stuff in. Room had few plates, silver, and cooking utensils, so plan to bring your own or buy paper plates. Biggest gripe is that each oceanfront room's balcony has a very bright light that stays on all night and can't be turned off or bulb removed which meant we couldn't open the curtains to see/hear the ocean (would be nice if they could be individually controlled or automatically turned off by 11 pm). But all this is trivial compared to the location and views. We will definitely stay here again.

Great place, great location. My wife and I stayed 6 nights after labor day. We enjoy so much to be facing the beach and the sea. Great also to be close to the beach because my wife has mobility limits. It was quiet in the room and the bed was very confortable. Thanks for the beach chairs also. We plan to go back next year. Things to improve: Wifi on balcony is not working well. We made most of our diner at the room and we were missing dishes and cooking ustensiles. The quality of image on tv was poor. It would be good to have the possibility to recuperate some stuff like plastic and paper. Merci, Ghislain et Christine Québec

Loved the closeness of the property to everything. Staff was really pleasant and helpful! Our smoke alarm malfunctioned in the middle of our stay- the property manager came right away; the repair guy right after that. There were very few electrical outlets, which made working remotely a little tricky... our suite had all the basics we needed to prepare meals. All in all, loved our stay, and will definitely look to go back! Thanks for making our stay enjoyable! 😊

This was my first time staying at this hotel. Comfortable, fairly quiet, nice staff. Very convenient to places we could walk to when we needed to, and could walk to beach. The only thing that would have made it a little better was hand towels-there were none in the room, and I asked a few times, but was told they were either in the laundry or not available. But again staff was very nice in explaining. Bathroom was a bit small. I would stay here again!
