Marjac Suites: Bringing the Comforts of Home

Marjac Suites has 62 two-room apartments with an amazing view of the Atlantic. You can feel the ocean breeze through your windows. For a romantic start, have coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean. There is nothing refreshing than that. After frolicking in the ocean, rent a bike and wander through the famous boardwalk. If you are into photography, do not forget to bring your camera. The view can be magical. And once night falls, relax by the TV, watch HBO or ESPN, or prepare your own meal at the kitchenette. Yes, it feels like home.

The Oceanfront Inn: Enjoying the View
