I just wanna start by saying spend a few extra dollars and stay someplace else! The past summer I stayed at the Sahara Motel in an ocean view room.. Before I could feel comfortable enough to even sit down I had to make a run to the store to buy Clorox Cleanups and Lysol spray to clean that nasty room..... More

The Sahara is a good choice for oceanfront motel on the boardwalk. Location is close to Phillips Seafood Restaurant( 2 blocks) and other well established local eateries on and off the boardwalk. Sahara Cafe is my best choice for breakfast(see review) Price for oceanfront room on the boardwalk is very reasonable as compared to other choices. The beach is not... More

We rented two rooms in the Oceanfront building. Both rooms were fantastic. No bad smells, AC was on upon arrival, brand new televisions. The balconies looking out over the ocean were clean and free of spiders (a hard feat to accomplish in coastal areas). Staff was friendly and parking was convenient. Bathroom was a bit small but enough to do... More

This was our second time we stayed at this hotel. We stayed both times at the tower building located on the corner 19th & Baltimore Avenue. The hotel room was clean & convenient although, the hotel could use some improvements. The pool was nice, but lacked tables with umbrellas. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Just got back from a 2-night stay. We stayed in the Tower Building, which has 4 floors and an elevator. The price was very good compared with most of the places I checked. Room was very clean - it had a bit of a musty smell when we checked in, but apparently this was because the A/C was off -... More

My wife and I booked a room at the Sahara Motel for one night in late August. We have been going to OC for many years but never tried the Sahara. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the room very clean and large enough to accommodate the both of us nicely. The price was affordable and our room was... More

Good: location, two pools, very clean Ok/not my fav: Double size beds... Forgot how small they really are! Internet only worked when we went down to the lobby :(. I know people say they don't need wifi on vacation, but we not own smart phones, so we do rely on it a lot to look up attractions, restaurants, etc.. We... More

Got away for a few days to the beach and this was my first time staying at Sahara. I was pleased to see the nice clean rooms. Bathroom a bit small and wifi could not connect to,in my oceanfront room, but minor things. Had a good time and would stay again.
