Our room appeared to be recently remodeled with a brand new bathroom. It was very neat and clean and the couple who run it seemed really nice and helpful. There's a little pool off the parking lot which the kids enjoyed immensely. Our room had a fridge/freezer with a microwave which was very convenient.
The location is great. 5 minute car ride to the ocean/boardwalk. Whole Foods right around the corner. Super cute coffee shop across the street. Trader Joe's and CVS + all the downtown restaurants and stores are within easy walking distance.
My only complaint was the breakfast which was either cereal or white/wheat toast + coffee/milk/OJ. A few additions like fruit, muffins, bagels, instant oatmeal, etc. would have made for a more filling breakfast.
