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

The room was very quaint, clean, comfortable beds, perfect little efficiency. Customer service was superb. Very friendly staff. Literally, you walk right on to beach. Best value and accessibility location wise..Would definitely stay again and will highly recommend it.

I know there are a lot of bad reviews here. And while I agree with certain points you can find in them (see below), I think it all depends on what you're looking for, and what your preconceived notions of what the Jersey shore should be are. I gave Ocean Court Motel four stars for several reasons: 1. THE STAFF.... More

Staff was rude, No WIFI as advertised,it never worked inside, outside, in the parking lot, or near the front desk. If you complain you actually get attitude!

We were very excited to visit Long Branch as we heard it was a better place to stay than Point Pleasant which is where we were taking the kids. Before showing up to the hotel, the owner or manager was very accommodating allowing us to stay for one night only rather than two which is required during peak season. In... More
