The cleaning staff never came to our room despite the housekeeping request sign we placed on our door, and despite several calls to the front desk. I finally went to their cart to get towels which they grudgingly gave me.
Ground floor room, Quiet, close to wharf & boardwalk!
Cable was out! No microwave! No continental breakfast. No value for the price.
The bathroom smelled bad like sulfur, standing water. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were hard.
They could Accommodate my very late check in - past 11pm
When I check in they gave me extra towels, plus I got to choose which room.
Available parking, not enough
