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.

Well, we weren't expecting much, but this place is not only outdated, but needs a total overhaul in terms of rooms and staff. We took the advice posted here to stay in the back. We expected quiet. There were people outside in the parking lot talking until 1am. People outside smoking. We did not feel safe here. Don't stay on the ground floor unless you want to see bugs on the bathroom floor. The bedspread is outdated, the Wifi signal was not strong (we kept getting disconnected) and overall we left and would not recommend this place to anyone.
