We stayed one night for a girlfriends birthday. You cannot beat the location. They upgraded us to an ocean view for free! Nothing fancy, but it is clean and the front desk is very hospitable. I would definitely stay again.

Right next to the Boardwalk, beach and wharf, so location is excellant. Numerous food and drink options within walking distance. Room was big and more than adequate and very clean. No complaints with the room itself or amenities(except lack of in room coffee). Staff was efficient and friendly. Parking lot is small and difficult to drive into and out of.... More

I see plenty of bad reviews but on the whole we found the coastview to be pretty good. First up booking.com cocked up our booking so instead of having two queens we had a room with king but it is big enough to sleep 3. The bathroom was nice enough although the sink is outside next to the fridge and... More

Regular customer for over 25 years, and have never been disappointed. Hotel is steps away from beach and boardwalk. Right next to cafes/diners and an easy walk to wharf with a variety of delicious restaurants to choose from. Hotel is clean, parking is free, staff is friendly and accommodating and the bed is very, very comfortable. I asked the brand... More

It was easy to check in, as soon as we walked in the room it had a smell. There was NO shower curtain and not enough towels. Rooms need to be updated! the pool is nasty and NOT heated. Parking sucks balls.. Other than that we liked the location rite across from the beach/boardwalk.

Not only I was I extremely disappointed in the outdated room (the TV had to be over 10 years old AND the volume didn't work on the remote...come on!), I was appalled by the lack of security for the hotel guests. I was woke up by a half a dozen juveniles outside my room at 2:00 o'clock in the morning... More

Coastview Inn is just what we needed. A place where you walk a 100 yards and your at the Beach and the Boardwalk. Clean & comfy, it was our perfect crash pad. Rooms are not a worry. Bottom floor for convenience but other than that your so spent by the time you walk in from the day and evening that... More

Other than being located near the beach, pier, and arcade, this hotel is in serious need of updating. When we opened the door to Room 117, the smell of urine about knocked us down. The front desk guy brought a spray bottle of disinfectant/cleaner, sprayed the carpet around the door and was generally apologetic, but didn't really offer to do... More

This hotel is located across the street from the boardwalk. We arrived early and although we could not check in we were able to park our car and leave for the day. Traffic and parking can be a nightmare in this town so we were very thankful to be able to park early. This is an older hotel which could... More

The pros: obviously the location - you can't beat it and we loved it. The room was clean and comfortable. Cons: parking is crazy tight. There are very few spaces and its one lane in and out so you really have to watch for cars. Our room, like i said, was clean except one major thing: the floors. They seemed... More
