I had a race that started at Cowell Beach and needed a place that was close to the race start. This location proved to be very convenient. Staff was very friendly as well. A great value considering that many hotels in the area require a 2 night minimum stay. The room had the basic necessities and that is all I... More

First let me say that this motel is great. The location is perfect for easy access to the beach, pier, and boardwalk. The price was fine. There was plenty of parking (which is a big deal in this area). The room was in fine shape. The service was excellent. Overall, I loved this place and I would certainly stay there... More

This place is infested with bed bugs. I stayed Sunday and Monday with three young children. I took them with me for summer break. Got a reasonable price through Expedia and I knew the location was ideal for three small children. I actually called Expedia Monday but it was too late to cancel Tuesday night. The room was not even... More

7/18/2015 As an Innkeeper of a Bed and Breakfast, I can attest for the pricing and location this little gem is a hit. Yes, rooms are small, but with a comfortable bed and shower so close to the Boardwalk, you don't need much. The couple at the front desk were helpful, friendly and had the best sense of humor. Just... More

We stayed at the beach view inn on 7/11-7/12. It was a nice place. The owners were wonderful and very friendly. The beds were comfortable. Great location. No pool but we got over it. When we left, I left my purse. Joe went above and beyond to locate my phone number. The name of my business is on my car.... More

Great place to stay right next to the beach. No frills, but the room is spacious and very clean, and the owner was great. I'll stay here again when i am in town. If possible, get the ocean-view rooms on the second floor - definitely worth the upgrade! The wi-fi connection had some issues, but sometimes it is great to... More

This is a perfect location - good proximity to the beach, the wharf, several restaurants - just leave your car at the hotel and stroll. The surrounding area appeared very safe and we felt comfortable being out and about at night and early the next morning (6am). Our room on the ground floor of this older facility was very clean...

Stayed for 2 night , and we had 2 rooms. Clean and very nice rooms! Got there early, no problem leaving the car in the parking lot. Walking to the beach, boardwalk is 5 minutes. Breakfast is minimal. Free wifi and it worked ok. Would stay here again!

Was greeted at first by a very nice and accommodating gentleman. I knew we were going to have a perfect stay. The rooms were very nice and clean. The bed was super comfy and we had a ocean view from our room. Very conveniently located and the staff is super nice. Will definitely stay here again.
