One of the worst ever

by ConstructionMan101

After working all day, I need internet to fill daily reports. I have stay in three different room, and NONE of them have internet over 15 seconds, at most. I have to come to the lobby area, and its 95%. If you don't NEED internet for work, and you can use your phone data, no problem. But, if you NEED a laptop because of lots of typing, and have to send files, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS PLACE, unless you want to sit in the lobby every night for a while, and listen to guests check in a few feet away....and just imagine the type of guests you'll see here......:(

Clean, affordable and close to Jones Beach

The room was clean and affordable. I did get a room farther from the road which was nice to cut down on the traffic noise. A coffee maker would have been nice but I brought my own. A few chairs outside would have made it a bit more comfortable for those that smoke but all in all, it was just fine.
