I book this motel based on all the good reviews. Check in went smooth when we arrived, staff very nice. Got to the room, it was OK. It wasn't a dump but it also wasn't what I expected based on reviews. I was starting to feel like it was a motel in another Seaside town with some of the guests... More

Terrie, We are disappointing to hear that you did not have a good experience while staying with us. I apologize for the TV not working. Our satellite was down for the day and unfortunately, our hands were tied until the repair tech arrived. Also, just a quick fact the room you stayed in was updated with completely new furniture, beds... More

I have stayed at the Matador, as well as the Harbor Light, which are both owned by the Del Monte family. We stayed at both motels for many ,many years. I can say without a doubt that they run the finest motels at the Jersey shore. The rooms are always spotlessly clean. They treat all guests like family, and take... More

We have stayed at the Matador for the last three summers in mid August. The rooms are clean and well-kept. The location is second to none: right on the beach, steps from the beginning of the boardwalk. The kids love the pool, the playground and being right by all the action on the Boardwalk. Terrific views, especially from the deck... More

We had a room on the third floor ocean side. The room was small, but clean; no smell. The heat worked well. Easy to use thermostat. The location was... More
