Great motel at a great location! This motel is clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and efficient. Rooms are well appointed. Pool area is a bit small, but they have other sun decks. Pool closes way too early for a beach resort.

We absolutely love coming here every year for our family vacation. It's right on the beach, close to the boardwalk and far enough from the excitement. It's very clean, the staff is nice and helpful. The rooms (type 4 & 6) are a nice size for a family of 4. I like that the sleeping quarters are in a separate... More

This was our first time staying at the Matador and we will loved our time there. We will be going back. The location is the best!! It is right on the beach and right at the beginning of the boardwalk. The staff was very nice and the facility was very clean. Very family oriented. I highly recommend this place.

My stay at the Matador was amazing. It's right on the beach, and the entrance to the Boardwalk is right next to the resort. The staff are amazing, and the maids are great. The rooms are amazing, the pool is great, and the view is amazing. I look forward to next summer, so I can come again.

Just came back from our vacation from the Matador and once again it was wonderful. The staff is great, the housekeepers are hardworking and so sweet they do an excellent job cleaning the rooms daily, grounds are kept in great shape. My little one got great use of the playground right out front of the hotel and the heated pool.... More

The cleanliness is excellent and the rooms are so cozy. It's everything you would want it to be and more. Ocean front view from our room... More
