This room will take you back to when you were a kid vacationing with your parents. Room was nice, big and clean. Sink in the bathroom area and outside the bathroom, which is nice when you have people trying to get ready at the same time. Balcony was an added bonus. The pool and kiddie pool were not open when we were there, so can not vouch for that. We only used their breakfast once, standard continental breakfast but they did have Krispy Kreme donuts- YUM! Walking distance to most things ... Read more

My husband and I styed here for 3 nights in May. walking distance to boardwalk, Ober tramway. the staff at front desk very pleasant and informative. Yes the rooms are dated but plenty big and there is a balcony over looking the pool it served the purpose for us, they had just replaced the mattress. We would stay here if we returned.

The staff was very nice, room was good for the price. The air conditioning cover was left off but the service desk fixed the issue immediately. The front desk was helpful with things to do in the area. I recommend asking them for fun things to do.

It was all good, the front desk lady was very nice, and cheerful....price was not bad, the location was good - walking probably 1 block to walk to parkway strip, less than that to eat at Bennett's BBQ, big daddy's pizza and Texas Roadhouse. The rooms were big, and roomy and it was quiet, balcony overlooked the pool. We didn't do the continental breakfast ...........We will stay again Our stay was Jun 10-12 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed there last week for 6 nights. The staff was wonderful and the stay was pleasant. We had a room with a jacuzzi and the only drawback was the area in which the toilet sat. It was a little cubby hole with no room on either side. Other than that, everything else was fine. Plain, simple rooms. Nothing fancy but it was clean and air conditioned which is all I needed since I was barely there.

We found that this hotel had a 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen and stayed here for significant savings over renting a mountain cottage, and we're glad we did... Staff was all very friendly, not just southern hospitality friendly. They must be the owner & operator, they made you feel like a guest. Beds were comfortable, linens were clean/not worn out, bathroom/kitchen were clean. Pool is a saltwater pool! Very clean and relaxing, we spent significant time in it every day. However, there i...

It was a nice clean room and the desk was very helpful. It was close and could catch the trolley. It was very handicapped accessible and so was the trolley. Hotel and town was fantastic. Book your room early as a lot of times they are full. There is a river right across the street where locals were fishing.

Hotel is older, but was clean and very basic. Located at the far south end of town which is convenient when you want to drive into the mountains. Parking can be rough when the hotel is sold out. Loved having a sink/vanity outside of the bathroom. Very limited breakfast choices. Very small TV in room (if that is important to you)
