Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    This property is conveniently located within walking distance to the wharf.Has a nice size pool and jacuzzi for families traveling w/ kids.But we were not comfortable because the rooms are not clean and the neighborhood is very noisy.Started w/the garbage trucks in the early wee hours slamming bins,then shortly thereafter sounded like someone driving around the block blasting loud music and then our neighbors being very loud.So overall we did not sleep soundly.

    The rooms lacked cleaniness.Also the neighborhood is very noisy.So overall we did not sleep comfortable.

  • Family with children

    We liked the indoor pool and jacuzzi but wished it stayed open longer.

    My room had cockroaches, which made me very uncomfortable. Also, when I told the management about the roaches they did not even offer me a discount or refund or an apology.

  • Couple

    It was a close walk to everywhere. Hotel accomadations were pretty basic and not luxurious but it's a room with a bed, bathroom, and tv.

    Comforter had nail plush stain in hot pink. General cleanliness would be an improvement.

  • Couple

    The Travelodge was only a few blocks from the Beach and Boardwalk.

    W/o air conditioning nor a fan, I was surprised that I had to walk to the opposite end of the property to borrow a small fan to get a little relief. Bed was hard and the pillows too small/thin. Staff did not address noisy "Partiers" outside outside their rooms past midnight until two guests complained. The low price appears to have attracted rowdy young folks drinking & smoking Pot etc. as well as families and law-abiding, respectful folks

  • Group of friends

    Hotel office open too late ie 8:00am

  • Family with children

    Left for dinner and our door was locked ad closed. Came back from dinner, the door was wide open. Management didn't seem to care too much. Nothing was missing.

  • Older travelers

    Good price, a little run down, but price is what we were after and expected place like this...

    I think if you are going to say you are having a free cont. Breakfast it could be a little better than it was. Coffee w/ powder creamer and a cut up muffin is a joke, just saying...

  • Couple

    We got to leave the next day.

    Dump, dump, dump. Toilet smelled like piss, sheet had blood stain. Furniture looked like salvation army, half the outlets were dead, white sheets used as curtains

  • Family with children

    Location and staff

    So overpriced for what you get but typical of this town

  • Group of friends

    It was pretty close to the boardwalk the rooms were clean we ordered one bed but they ended up giving us a two bedroom room!

    They did not tell us that we could have got a one room with 2 rooms in it we went as a group & payed more than needed.

  • Older travelers

    Rates where good but.....

    Needs to be Updated. We found someone's I.D. in our room so to me, that means Someone did NOT do a Great job At ALL in cleaning and that is very SCARY!! There is NO Lock on the door to the pool AND we were TOLD the pool was HEATED at 75 and Believe me, I would be Surprised if it were at 27!! Our Room REEKED of Cigarette smoke so much so that it made us SICK.... I do have to say that Desk Clerk who was there on November 22 Helped us with NO ATTITUDE!!

  • Family with children

    Spacious rooms, Low price.

    Rating listed as 2 stars, I would rate as 1 star only. Really similar to a Motel 6. There was even a police raid at 2:00 am which woke our entire family. Not the hotel's fault, but certainly speaks volumes about the clientele. I would not stay there again.

  • Group of friends

    Close to the boardwalk

    Room has no ac or fans, windows did not open so room was stuffy. They placed a hold on my card for the price of the room and also charged me, as of today their charge has cleared my bank but their hold is still pended so they have tied up an additional 225.00 of my money.
