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

Great Location, Close to nice restaurants but terrible customer service! We called to check what time check out was and they said 12:30 was ok, at 11am I had someone knocking the door like crazy telling me I was late and had more people coming that I had to leave the room asap! Not only rude but yelling at me.... More

Great location, very nice people, hotel room has a full kitchen and very comfortable, u literally walk out of your door and you're on the beach, I definitely would stay again, new wood floors, balcony with chairs to sit on, right next to all the action and quiet enough to not be annoyed by the club Avalon

We have stayed here on several occasions and this by far exceeded our expectations. From the wonderful and kind manager James to the assistant manager Donna. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, great sized patio, to perfect sized rooms, clean neat and orderly. This place is perfect for a weekend away. Anything you need James and Donna can... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. We chose to stay here after reading not so great reviews of the other hotel in the area. Ocean Court was perfect for our needs. Directly across from the beach and walking distance (literally a minute walk) to Pier Village. Our room was clean and updated. The staff was very friendly... More

The service and room was very disappointing. Ocean front room reservations were not honored. The room smelled and had mismatched pillow cases and furniture. Was not at all pleased with anything at this motel. Made reservations for one night and did not stay there. The service and attitude of the manager was unacceptable. Was quoted one price over the phone... More

Thank you "Ocean Court by the Sea" for great hospitality we were so impressed how close the ocean is to the location (DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STRET). Great staff very accommodating, rooms very clean with flat screens. Very impressed should be labeled as a hotel rather than a motel.

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
