After a long flight we wanted a place near the shore. It wasn't elegant but the staff was very eager to please and it really worked out well - especially for the price. Don't count on the breakfast though.

This was the worse motel I have ever encountered. We were renting 3 rooms (7/03/14), but spent less than 2 minutes in each one. It appeared to have feces on the bathroom wall, tubs were dirty, toilets filthy. One bed looked as if it had been slept in. Red looking bug on the top by pillow, possible bed bug. All... More

This place is pure garbage. The staff is by far the worst I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. Honestly I have never been treated with such disrespect its troubling that they're even still in business. The manger bob is just down right nasty. I called about 10 times to speak to him and I was hung up on,... More

This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed. I called for a one night stay and they stated the price was 129.00. When I got there it was increased to 199.00. The service was terrible. Owner stated I could check in by 11:00pm I was there at 10:45am and I could an extra bed. I wasn't able... More

The person that wrote the review on September 1 must be one of the staff. There is no way someone would think this was a great place. The last good review they got was in 2007 until the one from Sept 1, 2013. This place was horrible. Friends of ours booked this place. Never again! The carpet was so dirty... More

We stayed at the Royal Lodge and it was very pleasant. The owner is very nice and was very considerate to our needs. The hotel is about 10 minutes away from Atlantic City. So if your looking for a hotel that is reasonable I recommend that you stay at the Royal Lodge. Eleonora C.

First off, I read the reviews before coming to this motel and was expecting bad but not this bad...This place had to have been the worst place I have ever stayed at! We got to the door and the window of the room was wide open, we couldn't even enter the room with our key so we decided to crawl... More

I'm so sorry to hear about this. When you arrived at your room, did you let our staff know that the key didn't work and that the room wasn't cleaned? We would have promptly issued you a clean room—you definitely shouldn't have to sleep in a place where you feel uncomfortable. This is inexcusable. Above all, our guests' happiness comes... More
