I am shocked by some of these reviews because I found this place to be fabulous. I travel almost 40% of the time for work and have stayed in so many sorts of places, and this really is up there as one of the best. It has personality and charm. My room was very clean, had a fabulous view of... More

I know it is an old building but cleanness is all about cleanness. Hotel was ok except for the insects. I rented a room couple days ago and I found a cockroach in the bathroom. My room has the sink inside the bedroom next to the bed and there was another cockroach walking around the sink as well. Would never... More

It is not a luxury hotel, but the pool is awesome and the location is superb. It is so cheap I hope other people don't find out about this place! Very quirky, the view from the room was awesome right on the beach.

Accessible by the NJ transit train from Penn Station, a short walk brings you to a friendly oceanfront hotel quite reasonable, clean, quiet where the ocean breezes dance across the large lobby. great place for writers to sit and do their thing, the lobby expands into another huge room which one time was a ballroom, now a sitting room with...

Me and my husband was being spontaneous and drove to the area on a Saturday, we liked the area so much and decided ti stay for the night. The hotel had an old school look to it, so we chose to experiment for one night. Shame on us for doing it without planning. Sure it's cheaper, but we got what... More

I first stayed at the Mayfair back in the late 60s and early 70s.. this is not the Sheraton....It's better. If you want the old Jersey shore, this is the place. Some weird old architecture. Built in the 20s and hasn't changed. Woody Allen would love this place. If your looking for the old Jersey shore flavor, this is it.... More

This is a family run property that we found accidentally 21 years ago. The bathrooms were added in in the closet space and may have a shag rug. The space is very funky....The kitchen is shared so you can bring your food or grocery shop and use the pots and pans as well as the plates, knives and glassware that... More

My friends and i checked in this morning to this creepy "hotel". As we went to the pool an old creepy guy was asking if he could judge the beauty contest. They then proceeded to watch us sunbathe. We left to go out to lunch and made sure to lock our rooms.(we all checked) when we got back one of... More

The Mayfair hotel in Belmar, NJ is right on the beach. It offers ocean front rooms with amazing views. When you step out the front door you smell the ocean and feel the fun summer vibe of Belmar. The place has an old school mellow feel. It was built in the 1920s. It is family owned. The staff is super... More

Let me start by saying that if your going to stay at the Mayfair then you got to put in mind the hotel was built in the 1920"s and your not going to be staying at the Ritz Carlton. The hotel is being upgraded slowly the pool has been re-done and the painting of the Mayfair is in progress but... More
