I've gone there for many years and never had any issues The owners are terrific and will accommodate you any way they can. The hotel is great. It's only a couple blocks from the boardwalk and the price is right

Clean, close to the beach, friendly staff. We appreciated the discounted and free beach passes. If the pool was open later we would have used it. Enjoyed our visit! We would definitely stay here again.

1st time stay, an awesome motel. We had a room as described which worked well for us. Pool right outside which kids loved. The owner Theresa, who was on site, was a wonderful host. Beach was about 2 city blocks away. No complaints at all, applause only. Will definitely book again!
