It's a nice idea to have a kitchenette with a full fridge. However the room is very uncomfortable. Couch is very uncomfortable to sit. And having only one AC in the bedroom does not regulate temperature well. Freezing while sleeping and a hot in living room. That's not very comfortable and my blanket has blood stains on it. The one...

My family and I vacationed at Cara Mara just last week and we rented from Danni. The place was perfect, It was clean and had everything we needed. They even provided beach umbrellas that were stored in the closet,which was a huge plus to be able to borrow them. Our room had a perfect view of the ocean and overlooking...

This place was just OK. The rooms were clean, albeit small. The "kitchen" was just an oven, toaster, coffee maker, and small sink that you can't make dinner on. The bathroom was clean, and the bedroom was...interesting. There were two beds, which were OK, a nightstand with a clock with outlets, and an air conditioner (also there's a tv and...

I stayed here because my sister was renting 4 blocks away and I didn't want to spend a little more for a room I was only going to sleep in. I should have spent the extra money.... I got there and the window was open so it was hot and smelly. Someone had left. Cup with water and cigarette ashes...

We stayed here over the past week. We stayed here many years ago when our boys were younger. We liked the fact that the motel was far from the boardwalk and quiet when our kids went to sleep. It's not quiet any more, and nothing has been done to upgrade the rooms since our last visit in 2003. The rooms...

I have stayed at this property 3 different times; twice in the same room(414H) once in a smaller room(103B). Both units are not in great shape. The furniture is really poor quality, and has been abused in 414H. There is also mold on the lamp shades, and in some of the wall A/C units(both 414H and 103B). The kitchens are...

We rented a room on the first floor. The building is old but in good repair. It is a quiet location away from the boardwalk. Across the street is a city park/pavilion where bands play, early morning exercise groups meet, etc. The other side of the park is the beach entrance, very close. Next to the pool were several grills...

This place was not the greatest but it served it's purpose for the most part. We stayed here for 3 nights and made the most of it. When we arrived to check in @3 the office was locked. We had to search the building for someone to help us get our room key. After driving 2.5 hours to get here...
