8/10 Very good

Steps away from the ocean.
Enjoyed the stay as the property was on the beach and access was just steps away. We had a king suite and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was helpful & frendly. The rooms were small. On site parking was expensive. May want to use street parking if you use Uber or Lift to travel to nearby attractions. We were there early June. Parking may be difficult during the busier weeks.

Location.. Location.. Bla.
This hotel is smack dab in the middle of the action, steps from the board walk, beach, bars and restaurants. And this alone is the reason to stay here. Everything else is comfortable but just...OK. Parking in there lot is $30 a night but you can park for free right in front for 72 Hours if a spot opens up. Its not terrible hotel, its just a place to rest your head at the end of the day.
