The location to the boardwalk, beach , and restaurants can not be beat! Very clean, cozy, comphy, and quiet. The breakfasts were amazing, the owners very friendly and sweet people. Can't wait to go back.
The bed and breakfast was close to the beach. The breakfast at the bed and BREAKFAST was awful. Nothing but prepackaged donuts and heated up eggos.
When there was a problem, the staff was very accommodating. A/C worked well. The pool was clean and the "swim-up" Tiki Bar was nice, but only open on weekends. There were TOO many problems. Rooms/beds too small. Refrigerator broken. 10 channels on old-style TV. No phone. The WI-FI stopped working. Limited parking: only a few parking spots at hotel. You can get blocked in & have to get them to move car blocking you or you have to park almost two blocks away. The elevator broke one day. Limited ice supply and only machine at front desk. The bed was so uncomfortable, we did not get one good night's sleep. It seems this place is stuck in the 70s and not in a good way.
Right off the boardwalk. The staff was nice and friendly. It wasn't a bad stay for a two night beach adventure. Not very wheelchair accessible nor were the room very clean but it is a beach front hotel. The tiki bar plays music too loud to sleep if you plan to sleep before 11 pm.
Staff was friendly. Pool was small, but clean and warm and lovely, with plenty of toys and fun slide. Grateful for mini fridge and nicely stocked mini kitchen. Location was good, quiet. Near laundry and nice grocery store. Room could use updating. Stove top ancient, flat screen tv rather small. Bathroom tiny.
Convenient location. Booking online was easy. Cable TV. Couldn't open/close the front door without slamming because the wood was warped. TINY bathroom. Really loud A/C that barely blew any cold air. Uncomfortable bed.
Super close to the beach. Had the facilities we needed (fridge, microwave, bed and shower). Lowest price available. Super small, pool was gross, looks NOTHING like the photos. Short summery: perfect for a dirt cheap beachside motel. If you're a family, save up a few more bucks and go somewhere better.
Proximity to the boardwalk Very tiny room
The location is great not much else The hotel itself is probably 60 years old with little to no updates. The staff is not very friendly and they have a no visitor rule; they charge 20 per person per night after two this includes children. The pictures featured are deceiving such as the bathroom being much smaller (and damaged) than the picture. The owners are unfriendly and hover over guests, making sure they follow the rules.
Location to the Boardwalk is extremely convenient. The room was cold and uncomfortable. The furniture was old and stained. Bathroom plumbing old and seemed ready to break. Dirty caulking around tub. Towels were old, thin and disintegrating. Overall, we were not happy and uncomfortable.
Awesome ice machine.
Location to beach and boardwalk was good. Room was clean. Beds were pretty good. Room was not as pictured online. Online showed a little kitchen area, room did not have that. Tub had seen better days but shower worked well.
Our annual trip to the shore includes two related married couples, so we always try to find a place really close to the beach that has a room with two large beds. Last year we stayed at the Tropicana and thought it was okay–not well taken care of but the location was good. This year I took a shot booking a room at the Mango after reading mixed reviews–it appeared to me that the negative reviews were perhaps isolated incidents and need not be taken too seriously. One block farther away from the beach and $20 cheaper, Mango blew Tropicana out of the water! The distance made no difference because it is already on the road we take straight to the boardwalk–short walk away–and for $20 less we got a nicer room (wood flooring), better amenities (flat screen tv and better beds), cleaner facilities, super friendly manager, better parking (they have 2 lots), and perhaps a bit more family friendly, if you're looking for that. We were well pleased with our stay, and give bonus points for being allowed to stay in the side parking lot with our parking tag for the rest of the day we checked out without having to pay for parking anywhere! Super sweet! We booked the room through Kayak, and there were no problems–just showed ID and the card used, signed the receipt, and got the key. We didn't even have to formally check out when we wanted to leave and hit the beach–we just left the key in the mail slot. We'll likely stay here again for future trips to the shore! Water pressure in the shower was light and temperature fluctuated a bit, bit this isn't really a problem. We were there for the beach and salt water, not awesome showers; so, not a big deal.
Nice pool, hot tube. We were on the second floor and had a good view. The room was cleaned and comfortable. We got a two bed and also had a table to eat and space for our luggage.
I really liked the clean sheets and the two blocks to the boards was an easy walk. The motel is a bit older, but well kept. Could use some updating, but nothing is in terrible need of repair. What I didn't care for: Blackout curtains ONLY. Would have liked some other curtains to allow in sunlight without allowing EVERYONE to see inside the room.
It was an okay place for the weekend. The beds went that comfortable an don't use there towls. There all stained. They keep the cleaning supply an towls in a garidge. It was a good price that why we went there. Don't think I would want to be there when its crowded there. We only had a few rooms with people from what I could tell. Towls were gross an the beds were hard.
Privacy Needed clean wash cloth and towels and had to wait until morning to get them because there was no one to call .. The office was closed
Nothing Pictures looked better than run down motel that it is. Had to charge my phone in the bathroom, but it didn't work, old fashioned small tube tv, clock didn't work, lamp didn't work, wifi didn't work, air conditioning never got cold, bathroom was sweltering, run down mismatched furniture, no headboards, no blankets, had to use comforter for a blanket. Parking was ridiculous. Had to race back to hotel and ope you got a space-which was very tight anyway. Never will stay there again and seriously don't understand how Kayak portrayed it as a nice motel. It was a real dive. Good reviews had to be written by family members or owners themselves
Location Room size, bathroom
The location to the beach and boardwalk was great, and was still close to restaurants and things in town. We had a nice beach view even on the side of the building. Everything was clean. The staff was very nice. For the price, it met our purposes for a long weekend away. You had to wait a while for the toilet to refill to be able to flush again. The internet didn't work. The balcony was small, but wasn't a big deal.
We really liked the location and the office staff were very nice, friendly and very accommodating. For just the two of us we had a great time and the room was nice for just a night away and it was within walking distance to the beach and boardwalk which was very nice not having to drive anywhere.
Raf was the perfect host; location couldn't be better!
Location When we arrived we were given a room and entered to find someone in there finishing up showering. We didn't get a clear explanation but apparently they let previous tenants use the room well past check out and clean up time to shower etc. really set a bad tone for the weekend. made us question whether our room was secure. Also didn't like knowing that someone was using our room and it was not cleaned after they were done.
Staff was friendly and very nice. Great location for beach and boardwalk. The hotel has not been kept up. Room we stayed in was moldy dirty and had furniture /appliances from the 1970's. Stairs looked ready to collapse. In desperate need of paint.
Great, it was clean. We will be back next summer. n/a
Location right across from the boardwalk and beach with easy access. The staff were very attentive and accommodating to our group. The pool area is quite nice and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The rooms we're a little out of date, but nothing that caused any concern or presented any problems.
Staff was nice. Room was clean but needs to be updated, especially for the price. Too expensive although I did book late. We were told we didn't need a car parking tag when in fact we did and got a notice that it would be towed. A lot of adult party people. Phone did not work.
It was a great location , and good for what we needed for the few days we were there. The staff was friendly. The pool was clean. Was quite at night. During our stay there was another family that had probably 20 people with them staying in only 2-3 rooms(which isn't allowed) they hogged the entire pool, all the pool chairs, grills, and tables by the grills ALLLLLL DAY LONG. There are signs next to the grill that says max time is 30 minutes, and again they used it literally all day, we couldn't even sit down by the pool, because we couldn't. One of their kids were walking around in their diaper and getting in the pool, gross! I found this irritating the staff didn't say anything to them! There are other guest that paid to use your amenities too!
Consierge named Pam was extremely helpful and flexible with our check in and check out. Just because the architecture is from the doo whop era doesn't mean the mattress, bedding, and poolside amenities need to be 50 y/o. Who thought Faux Palm trees were a good idea?
