Stayed in room 214 overlooking parking lot but with a view of the ocean. (saved money that way). Clean with some wear in the bath. Could use some TLC in there. Shower water switched from warm to cold at times and no pressure in sink. Refrig, TV and AC were all new and worked wonderfully. All staff was very courteous... More

Where to begin. My first indication should have been the miserable woman at the desk, but it didn't stop there. Our room smelled of urine the entire time we were there. Our tv in the bedroom did not work, our refrigerator didn't work either. Oh and if you think you will be given a parking spot forget it. The lot... More

We had such a wonderful time at this hotel. I can't understand the bad reviews? Our room was very clean and decorated with typical beach decor. The food was excellent! They even served the large sized shrimp instead of the usual small sized version you get when you order shrimp cocktail. The beach and the pool are right there making... More

It's not good for small kids. It's an easy on and off the beach, but it's for adults drinkin all day and late all nite. Brind ear plugs and you'll be fine if you require that much sleep. It's the beach so if you expect lux accomodations go to the Hamptons and bring about 5K. This spot is great for... More

Words cannot decribe the terrible state of this motel. It is filthy, mismanaged, loud, and the emplyees are inexplicably rude. If this place was run properly, it would be a nice place to stay but instead, it is a place to find drunks and inedible food. This place is a nightclub...bands play loud music until 1am and the bar outside... More

Our whole clan stayed here, and the thing that was great was the logistics -- we could gather together easily at the bar, at the pool, in the dining room, at the private beach chairs, or on the beach. That alone earns this place three stars. What was not so great: the damp rooms, the not so squeaky clean bathrooms,... More

The Sea Shell has been a great romantic getaway for my GF and I. We are going back for the 3rd yr straight. Great beach (be careful the waves are awesome and will wipe you out if you don't pay attention!), great bar, great bands (we really like Dog Voices), great town. This is a great place to get away...

I am so happy to find a place for me to vent how terrible my stay was at the Sea Shell Motel and "Beach Club" on Long Beach Island, NJ. I am warning anyone who has kids to not stay at this Motel! We stayed there 4 years ago and my heart still races when I think of my experience... More
