Great location, but disappointed that the staff wouldn't allow even an hour later checkout on a Sunday AM in mid-September, given that the motel wasn't full with nobody beating down the door to check in. Amenities are the bare minimum -- no coffee packs were in the rooms, even with kitchenettes. No fitted sheets were used -- flat sheets came... More

An interesting compromise on all the comforts one might expect vs the view and the really friendly staff. Short on conventional amenities -- but sitting on the deck looking at the folks walking by on the boardwalk , the dolphins swimming out along the beach and seeing a sunrise make it a kind of special place. Granted the carpets are... More

You can't beat the location - right on the Boardwalk/beach at Bethany. We were in Building A, facing the interior parking lot and the room was very quiet and clean. Nothing fancy - old TV and furnishings, but came with refrigerator and the shower was nice, and the WiFi worked. Had a great weekend. Staff were nice and helpful -... More

New mattresses, spartan but clean enough. Who cares about amenities...it was cheap and right on the ocean. Yes, night clerk was annoyed by my presence, but it was cheap and right on the ocean. Day desk personel lovely. I'd stay there again for sure. Hey...it was cheap and right on the ocean!

We loved it here! We had an ocean front room that was clean and roomy. I feel that a lot of the previous reviews are really unfair. Yes, if you are looking for a new luxury motel with all the amenities, then this is not for you. This is an older motel, but they also don't claim to be new... More

It was the worst! Expensive and not clean.The office lady was nice but the young man was rude and a jerk. Would not recommend this to anyone. Awful experience so don't go - hit the Holiday Inn a few blocks away where at least you get breakfast!!!

The first impression of the Bethany Arms is basically what you get. Check-in for us was quick but the hotel clerk acted like he couldn't be bothered. Not a welcoming experience. The location of the hotel is excellent! It is right on the boardwalk and beach and within walking distance to everything. Forty years ago (if in a time warp)... More
