Absolutely filthy place. First, we had a very difficult time getting into the room because the keys (yes keys) were not labeled and did not work in the door. Had to wiggle the key to get it unlocked. The smoke detector was non existent and the only sign of one being there was a hole in the ceiling. Layers and... More

Older hotel that is on the boardwalk. Room was out dated, no elevator. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor that was on the back side, so we didn't hear the bar in our room but it was very loud in the hallways. Our room was very clean! Had 2 issues with the toilet that were promptly fixed.... More

This place is perfect for everything we needed. It is inexpensive, located right on the boardwalk with easy access to Shenanigans Pub for drinks and Dough Rollers for breakfast. Our room was even facing the ocean...and for only $200 per night for a queen and twin! The staff and manager are very friendly and helpful as well. As for the... More

Old & worn, and not in the shabby chic sense. Our phone did not work and we could not get the deadbolt to lock. The desk clerk was snotty & dismissive to our concerns, and the manager was instantly defensive and rude. We paid for 3 nights in advance and checked out after the first night to go 10 blocks...

If you need just a room and a shower, this will work. Nothing fancy here. I felt like I walked through a door to the 70s. The carpet, beds, TV and bathroom were very old. However, the place was CLEAN. I would stay there again given the short duration of stay. The price was a bit high for the what... More

This is an older hotel and does not have an elevator for it's 3 stories. However, the staff totally make up for this. The woman working at the front office was fantastic. She was very helpful and knowledgable. I would definitely stay here again. The room was a decent size and very clean. The hotel is right on the boardwalk.... More

My family has been meeting up at the Shoreham for some 10 years now for our yearly long weekend get together at the beach. The location is excellent and we've experienced clean rooms and friendly staff, Angel has always been accommodating with our bookings. Yes this is an older hotel and the rooms aren't decorated, but we go to Ocean... More

We stayed there in July and the room was filthy. The sheets and comforter were stained and dirty. The owner was very argumentative and nasty towards our complaint. The shower head kept falling off as well. The location was the only upside, and is right on the beach/boardwalk. We left a day early due to the conditions of the room.

I'm sorry that your stay was uncomfortable. the reason you were not refunded your first night stay was due to you walked pass the front desk at least three times and never complained. when you wanted to check out at 5pm the following day is when you complained. I would have like to correct the problem by providing you new... More

Just this weekend I went to the beach with my aunt, mom, and cousin and it was a last minute decision to head to maryland. Never again will we stay there. Too many flights of stairs, no elevator. Had to carry our luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The floor was uneven, stains on the bed, small bathroom, the water... More

I'm very sorry you were unhappy with your stay at the Shoreham Hotel, I'm not sure if you complained at the front desk so we could have fixed the issue or moved you to a better room. I hope that in the future you would give us a second chance to make it right. More
