"Good location near the highway. I felt safe. The hallways and elevators were clean, but the room smelled like fried food and wasn't that clean. I didn't like the bed pillows. Not enough towels provided, and the toilet paper was thin. The floor was sticky. The hotel clerks were wonderful, and the man in charge was personable. 2022-05-19"
"Other than a mild musty smell, my hotel room was clean and quiet. It was uncluttered with unnecessary items. No bedside lamp, though; the overhead light was glaring. Great choice if you just need a place to sleep.2021-08-25"
"No toiletries provided, and there were no dishes or cookware. No coffee maker either. The toilet ran non-stop.2019-03-11"
"The hotel was reasonably clean, and across the street from the beach. The continental breakfast wasn't great, but there were other options nearby. The front desk clerk offered some dining recommendations.2022-10-11"
"This hotel was a good, economical choice. Across the street from the oceanfront and great boardwalk for walking and biking. The room was clean, and the service was nice.2017-01-17"

"Great hotel stay. The room was clean and pretty, and the bed was so soft that I didn't want to get up. Awesome breakfast with many choices. A really nice place.2016-10-25"
"Choose a room in the tower building. I heard too much noise from the bar next to the hotel.2015-10-30"
"The hotel had new owners, new flooring and paint, but the room lacked a hair dryer and tissue. The staff said they were short on washcloths and linens. The beds were fairly comfortable, but the bedsheets were stained. The bathroom ceiling leaked from water in the room upstairs. Nice front desk staff. The breakfast attendant had a bad attitude, and food was minimal. Only one desk clerk working a 24-hour shift. I don't recommend staying here.2023-05-10"
"I had a comfortable hotel stay.2019-09-19"
"Great hotel stay.2019-08-03"
"The hotel wasn't that clean, and the room was outdated. The heater only had one temperature, and the TV reception was fuzzy. The employees weren't that friendly. I wasn't impressed by much other than the price. Breakfast was scary. Bring your own pillow and blankets, and wear flip flops in the shower.2018-01-16"
"Great location right by the boardwalk. The hotel was OK but really needed updating.2021-08-12"

"The hotel wasn't lavish, but the accommodations were satisfactory. We were met by friendly, competent employees when we arrived. Throughout our stay, the attention to detail was excellent.2016-07-25"
"Good rates. The room was clean but somewhat small. I didn't hear any noise even though we were right by the ice machine. The hotel staff wasn't that professional, and didn't ask for ID when guests asked for extra room keys. 2016-07-21"
"Clean room. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Had an indoor pool, but I forgot my swimsuit. Limited parking, and the spaces weren't made for a large SUV. Great restaurants on the same block, including a breakfast place.2015-10-21"
"Great hotel. The room and bathroom were clean, and the showerhead worked well. Nice view from the balcony. The only negative was that the room was a bit cramped withe the fridge, coffee maker and such. Not enough counter space by the sink. Good stay overall; I recommend it.2017-11-01"
"Ask for a room on the new side of the hotel complex.2017-07-17"
"This motel was awful, and the staff was even worse. Upon arrival, we were told there were no rooms available, but suddenly she found a non-smoking room. Unfortunately, it reeked of cigarette smoke. There were people outside smoking marijuana. A large truck was running in the parking lot. Stay somewhere else.2021-07-19"
"The motel room was clean, but there was a dead roach on the carpet. Check-in went well.2017-09-22"
"The motel was clean. If I were staying for more than a night, I'd choose a more updated property.2016-12-28"
"Not worth the price. The motel room looked fairly clean, but the washcloth was dirty and I found a dead cockroach under a bag in the bathroom. The checkout clerk didn't seem overly concerned when I told her, and didn't offer compensation. I don't think I'd stay here again.2016-04-25"

"Good rates and close to restaurants and malls. The room needed upgrading, but I had a decent stay.2021-10-04"

"The room and bathroom were clean, and the bed was comfortable. However, the shower temperature was hard to regulate, and the bathtub didn't drain well. The hotel clerk was helpful and pleasant.2020-12-04"
"The hotel lobby was small, but the suite was nice, clean, and quiet. The sofa was comfortable, and so was the bedroom. Bring some ice; the in-room fridge had a freezer with an ice maker, but it took a long time to make ice.2020-11-08"
"Great hotel in a great location. The employees were friendly.2017-08-15"

"An outstanding hotel stay.2017-02-13"
"Nice hotel. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it.2016-10-31"
"The room could've been cleaner. The TV didn't work, but it was fixed in the afternoon. I found hair behind the bathroom door. The hotel clerks were most helpful. Good breakfast buffet. Parking spots were few and far between. I'd stay here again.2016-07-09"

"Clean hotel with friendly personnel. Breakfast was great.2017-11-22"

"The room was clean, but smelled like smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. Pleasant staff. I'd stay again.2015-06-27"
"The staff was friendly and helpful, but the hotel was way below par and in need of renovations. It took a long time to get hot water in the sink and shower, and the water temperature fluctuated. The bathtub didn't drain well. The hot food at the breakfast buffet was lukewarm to cold, and breakfast cost $14.2017-01-24"
"Convenient to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants, and shops. Inexpensive. The room and amenities were as expected for a 2-star hotel. The room was clean but small, and the bathroom was tiny. The staff was friendly. The phone didn't work, but we didn't need it. The check-in desk was in the parking lot, so we had to go outdoors to reach it, and also had to go out to reach the elevator. The pool was tiny and right next to the parking lot, with just a fence for separation. Adequate for a short stay.2016-04-12"
"The hotel was old, and it was under construction when we stayed. The room was only partially remodeled, and the pool was dirty. Seemed more like a cheap motel.2015-09-24"
"Good hotel for the price. The room was very clean.2015-03-26"
"Hotel door was locked and the lobby was dark when we arrived just after 4 AM - after pounding on the door, we finally called 911; police officer shined light in window, and a clerk came and let us in - he said he was working in back, but it was obvious he'd been sleeping, and he initially gave us the wrong room key - room was nicely laid out - ceiling fan in the bedroom was filthy - shower wasn't cleaned our 2nd day - weekend clerk apologized, but the manager never did - don't recommend=2014-05-01"
"Not a bad place to stay, but it was inconvenient to navigate. The ice machines weren't conveniently located, and I had to go through two breezeways with luggage, which was difficult for a physically challenged person. The view was spectacular.2019-12-02"
"The hotel room wasn't thoroughly cleaned; there was old food in the fridge, and the furniture was dusty.2019-11-18"
"The coffee and microwave in my hotel room didn't work, and it took a long time for the maintenance worker to deal with the malfunctioning safe. On a positive note, the beachfront setting can truly calm you down.2015-11-03"
"The motel was falling apart. The room was dirty and had bugs, and there was hair in the bedding and bathroom. The toilet was loose. Don't waste your money here.2020-09-07"
"Great value and across from the ocean. The motel was small. The room served our purposes well, though the desk, shower rod, and toilet paper dispenser needed repair.

"The lock on my room door didn't work, and the floor and windows were dirty. The smoke detector was chirping before we checked out. The toilet didn't flush properly. I was charged for early check-in even though I've been driving for a long time. No kitchen gear in the room; I had to get them from the front desk, including the coffee maker. OK motel for an overnight stay.2022-02-25"

To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
