Great value for the weekend.

Liked: The location is amazing and the staff was great
Disliked: The bed are hard and they squeak soooo much. The bathroom had someone else's hair all over the floor and it smelled "wet" in the room

Trading great location and free...

Liked: The location was amazing and the breakfast and staff checked the boxes. The bonus is that you also get a good deal on the day pass at the boardwalk and the parking is free. It was so nice to be able to walk back and forth throughout the day though. That being said, I would stay here again for convenience and bring a couple of pillows and a decent blanket, cross my fingers, and hope for a good night's sleep.
Disliked: The issues were the antiquated facilities, the beds were horrendous, and the WIFI. They only had one employee there so we tried to check in twice and had to leave and come back. They were taking breaks both times.
