Stay in a location and style usually only reserved for locals. Full kitchens in every suite along with comfortable living rooms provides an authentic homestyle experience few get to have while traveling.


No need to go out to eat if you don't want to! Have a great family dinner at "home" in your fully applianced private kitchen.


Our properties have been part of history since they were built, but they are also establishing their own history in the present. World renown musicians, artists, and more still flock to our locations.

Perched a few feet from the Boardwalk, very few places like Ellison Suites remain. Authentic, cool vibe.
