Was expecting a cheap Montauk-like motel which would have been fine for us for the price and last minute. This place really exceeded our expectations. Plenty of towels which were soft and fluffy unlike other motels and lots of soap too (unlike other reviews). Kitchen was a bonus, nice bathroom, spacious room for Mom, Dad and two boys. Beach right... More

Maybe because it was pre-season in mid June but this hotel was a joke! No towels or soap in bathroom that we had reserved 2 months previous to our arrival. Sheets did not fit beds, did not appear freshly laundered and the pillows were scary!! I would definitely check out the room before I paid. We were asked to pay... More

Clean motel with an exceptional location. We happened to get a room that when we stepped out we saw the ocean right in front of us; beautiful. Surpisingly the decor inside the rooms was much more modern than what we expected. The only thing i would complain about is some rowdy college kids in the room next door and although... More

This is a great little find of a motel. It's not scary or dirty. It is not an upscale place but considering the location, the price can't be beat. It is not on the beach but most if not all rooms have an ocean view. Great for those one or two day shore trips with kids or with hubby to... More

I loved my stay here. The view was absolutely beautiful. This hotel is located right on the beach. I can see my tennage kids sitting on the beach from the deck of this hotel. The location is the best. It is literally right on the boardwalk in Pier Village. I was impressed with the rooms, hardwood floors, beatiful bathrooms, very... More

The best thing about this motel is its location, right across the road from the beach. It's a short walk to restaurants and shops. My room on the second floor was clean and quiet. My room had obviously been recently updated and the bathroom was small but very nice and perfectly clean. The remaining decor and furnishings were also very... More

You simply can’t beat this place for its location, facilities, service and price. An immaculate ocean beach is right across the road, replete with a measured two mile, walking, running, biking trail along the boardwalk. Every single room in the place has just been remodeled and looks wonderful. In addition to comfortable beds, each unit has a kitchen with a... More
