Choose hotel based on kitchen and destination. No equipment in kitchen (ie: coffee cups/ plates/ knives). Sheets literally had stains on them (you know what I'm talking about), management was unhelpful and the office smells like an ashtray.

It was terrible. The room was not clean, broken furniture. Window pan broken, closet door, drawers, storm door, tile in bathroom, mold on refrigerator, mold on shower curtain and tile in tub. The owner was rude when I addressed the problems and wanted to leave. There was also very loud music in the next room.

Dumpy and expensive. No plates cups silverware or anything in the "kitchenette" not even an ice machine on premise. Ugly beach surrounded by orange jersey walls and fences. Sheets were threadbare. Paid over $300 per night on hotels.com only because could not find phone number on their website to book directly. Topped off by grumpy, unfriendly management.

This place is falling apart. Wind and rain leak past the door’s rotting frame – we put a towel on the floor. The door itself has no chain, deadbolt or do not disturb sign. There is no phone, no clock, no cups or filters for the coffee maker (much less coffee), one flexible glass, not forks, spoons or knives. No... More

I hesitate to write this because I don't want too many people to know about this gem of a motel because I am afraid that there will not be a room available for our next visit. But they deserve this excellent review. Best kept secret on the Jersey Shore. My husband and I stayed for two nights June 26th and... More

My husband, daughter, and I spent the weekend at this motel and thought it was a great getaway. I'm 8 months prego and needed some fresh air. This was by far the cheapest place on the boardwalk. Ocean place had rates double this price as did bungalow and bungalow wasn't even on the boardwalk. My daughter rode her bike on... More

Let's just start with the price of the rooms!! first you call and they tell you one price and once you get there they change it to another. The bed spreads have cigarette burns and hair. Let's not forget that you will also find sand on the sheets. Its very pricey for the type of room you get. One more... More

Last minute, I decided I wanted to stay at a hotel overnight before the NJ Marathon. I chose Ocean Court based on proximity to the finish line and availability, figuring it was only for one night. I ended up really enjoying my stay. The location is perfect for both the beach and the race. The room had everything you need--comfortable... More

I stayed 4 nights last week and had such a wonderful time. Rooms were clean and organized. They had everything I could need I felt like i'm in a 5 star hotel. I love the people there, they were very helpful and friendly. I will differently come back again. I don't usually write reviews about a hotel I stayed at... More
