Stayed one night at the Coral Seas in May and had a great time. The only room available was a suite which was more than we needed but it was an excellent room. It was on the third floor overlooking the pool with a great view of the ocean. The room was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed the... More

recently stayed at the coral seas. if you're looking for the lap of luxury - this isn't it. but if you're looking for a very nice, clean, friendly place coral seas fits the bill. because it was pre-Memorial Day, I believe it added to the pleasurable experience. (no crowds, extra attention, etc.) we had an oceanfront room which is spectacular... More

As some other reviews mention, this isn't the newest hotel around, but relative to what's around, a definite 4 stars. First visit to LBI a few years ago I was concerned about the lack of nice chain hotels, etc, but have come to love the charm and area of this place. Owners and staff are really nice and take care...

I visited the Coral Seas Oceanfront as a last minute Mother's Day trip to the shore. It was not my first choice, but they had an ocean view room available at short notice so we took it. I was traveling with my husband, 16 year old daughter, and nearly 3 year old son. The cost is a bit high considering... More

We spent the weekend here while attending a beach wedding. It was the least expensive of three motels, all in a row. The pool was very nice and the beach was a very short stroll through the dunes. The room was comfortable and clean with two queen beds. I'd like to try the ocean view rooms next time I visit.... More

One of the better values on LBI. Located on the beach, with basic but clean rooms and a very nice pool. It's a very walkable location to shops, restaurants and taverns. Rooms are a little dated but have flat screen TV's, small fridge and coffee maker. We were there off-season and for a reasonable fee, were able to keep our... More

My family came to the Coral Seas for years when I was growing up and I returned over Labor Day with my boyfriend for a quick beach getaway. The motel is right on the beach and that's why you stay here. Almost all of the places to stay on LBI are motels and as long as you don't expect a... More

The hotel was recently renovated and its prime for location, short walk to the beach and short walk to restaurants, grocery store to fill the mini refrigerator in the room and Bay Village and Fantasy Amusements. Pool is so nice and whole area is always kept clean, they supply your beach badges for your stay and bathroom facility if you... More

Coral Seas is an old shore motel, but it's been updated so the room we had for 3 nights in August was very clean and neatly decorated. I took notice that the walkway behind our ground floor room was swept daily and the staff in general keep the place well maintained. We've stayed in beach motels where because of the... More
