  • Family with children

    Horrible, I would not stay at this Hotel ever again. The room smelled like urine. The beds were very uncomfortable and it was a horrible experience. We couldn't wait to leave.They should not be allowed to run a hotel in such horrid conditions.

  • Couple

    There wasn't much to like. The only positive thing about my stay was that there was a free shuttle to the casinos, Which saved me a 25 dollar cab ride. On the other hand... the location is far enough that it warrants a shuttle or expensive cab ride.

    I only stayed here because I booked last minute and it was a holiday weekend. This was literally the only place that had vacancy, and clearly there's a reason for that. I would never stay here or any place like this ever again, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. This motel room should not have cost more than 50$ per night. But because of the holiday weekend I payed $200. If I had payed $50 I would have at least been expecting what I saw. I thought that it couldn't possibly be that bad considering the price, but it was. The place was dirty inside and out. The room smelled awful. My girlfriend put our own beach blanket over the bed and we slept on that rather than the sheets. We considered sleeping in my car.

  • Couple

    Honestly I liked the location, only 10min maybe less from the casinos and entertainments, for a last minute booking it was pretty good

  • Couple

    Me and my boyfriend stood here for 4 days . It was a little far from the casinos a bus does come but going back didn't meet the time we wanted to go back to the hotel... The pool was clean But the room had spiders everywhere n wasn't very clean. I actually bought disinfectant spray n didn't use there sheets n towels. You pay for what u get

  • Older travelers

    The hotel was the worst experience i've had, the service was terrible, the room stunk, the toilet did not flush, I was given a plunger to plung my own mess...... And the management had no clue.

    I didn't like anything about the hotel...Only styed because they would not refund us our money, I learned websites are very deceiving and the hotel was nothing like the pictures online....Lesson learned do further research before you choose a place to relax for a weekend!!!!!

  • Family with children

    The staff was quite rude. We had a problem with our rooms at first and when we complained, they switched us to another room which shortly after, we left to go to atlantic city. Then, the next morning, when we went to take a shower, the tub was completely blocked and the water quickly rose with disgusting content so no one in my family could take a shower. then we went to go complain around 10 in the morning when checkout was at 11. The manager was extremely rude. He told us that he could not do anything to help us. which we found quite wrong. He told us that we came too close to checkout time and if we would have come earlier, he would have had us switch rooms AGAIN. We told him repeatedly that he was being rude to us, and rather than helping us relove the issue, he told us that he doesnt want customers like us at the hotel. I had a slip of tongue and used the word bloody once, then he went on and on using fowl language. He sent one of his guys to go check the room and when the guy came back and confirmed the problems, the manager continued to ignore our complaint, telling us that he cannot do anything for us. The owner/president of the hotel was sitting in the lobby, and when the manager told the owner what the problem was, the owner was quite rude to us also. We told him the problems and he replied, "who is going to pay to fix that stuff?" That was very offensive. Then after a bit of arguing, the manager specifically told us to "get out."

  • Family with children

    The staff very incomprehensible and spoiled and the bathrooms lack of towels and other things more

  • Couple

    The best thing was the location of the place.

    The room were not cleaned properly and check in was at 3 and the room was not ready.

  • Older travelers

    The section I stayed in rm105 was not lit and it was dark once the sun went down. The other sides were well lit.The front door has such a huge gap that cold air was coming thru. I didnt feel safe to stay but we had no other choice at the time. When I checked out I had to ask for a receipt and when I viewed it I was charged $91.03 The room was supposed to be $70.00 but I saw I was charge $5.53 twice (one for state tax and city tax) and a $1.00 for an additional person .I would not recommend anyone to this Hotel.

  • Group of friends

    Nothing. It was absolutely disgusting. I wanted to throw up the whole time I was there. Almost slept in my car.

    Everything. Worse grossest place I have ever stayed

  • Older travelers

    The bathroom layout was ok.

    The complimentary breakfast was served in an unheated area, it was very uncomforable.

  • Group of friends

    The beds were like rocks! the rooms need to be more clean, found spider webs in the room, you have cigertte burns on the tub, the curtons. No phone. But over all for just a place to crash after a long night. It works. If your looking for a 4 star this is not it or looking to spend your time in the room than this is not it. This just a crashing place.

  • Couple

    The price. That is all the appearence was a mess

    The appearence, the clenliness. It should have been cheaper than what it was

  • Couple

    Nothing I woluld never recommend this branch of Hojos I have always had good stays with Hojos in the past which is why I chose this one.

    Dirty unsafe a hazzard a total joke of a room really thought I might get bed bugs or murdered..... You could see right out the door around the frame There was stains on the bed linens garbage from the past stays in the cans the tv was plugged into a 10 cent extension cord along with the cable box and the lamp in the room the carpet had all kinds of water damage the continental breakfast was out of everything and the dinner was cold not heat at all.

  • Couple

    Price n location close to the casinos

    Was a typical low budget mottel , would not recomend to others ,
