We stay at Coral Seas every year for long and holiday weekends. We just stayed over the July 4th weekend, which did require a four night reservation. They were completely booked, with many families. I have never been there when it was so crowded, but it was still lovely. One of the nice things about this place is they attract... More

We stayed at the Coral Seas for a long weekend 7/10 - 7/14. As we did not plan on spending much time in the room we booked a Standard room which consisted of 2 double beds, dresser, flat screen TV , coffee maker and mini-fridge. The room was very clean and did not have that musty Jersey Shore motel smell.... More

This property has A LOT going for it, and I will definitely return. 1. Everything is dated. But it is VERY clean and VERY well maintained. It's like you took a time machine back to 1972 and the owner just purchased all the tables, umbrellas, lounges, etc. There wasn't a single strap broken on ANY lounger or chair in the... More

Coral seas is not a luxury hotel but it does not assert that it is one. It is clean, comfortable and well maintained. Management is courteous and accommodating. It is located directly on the ocean and has a nice sized pool. Hotels/motels on LBI are, by design, small, family owned and operated establishments. There are no upscale, modern high-rise hotels...

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
