The cleanliness of the rooms is superb. the view of the best beach great. The convienience of having the boardwalk right there with the tramcar. Cafe's within walking distance. We usually walk to breakfast most mornings. We have been staying at the Matador for many years and just love it. would recomend it to everyone and have.

We just got home from our 6th summer staying at the Matador and we are already discussing our vacation for next summer! This motel is family friendly, clean and convenient to the beach, playground and boardwalk. They even have an elevator and two sun decks with great views of the ocean. We wouldn't stay at any other place! We love... More

This was our 3rd year staying at the matador. My husband stayed here as a child. The motel is clean inside and out. You'll often see a staff member sweeping outside and even wiping the elevator floor! The location is perfect especially for the teenagers. We park our car and it never moves till checkout time. The first year we... More

This July was our 9th year we've spent 10 days at the Matador in a two (2) room efficiency with great satisfaction. Like every motel you will get overly rambunctious/noisy children at times however overall the clientele are very friendly and family orientated. Price wise: A little pricey however you do get what you pay for in comfort and convenience.... More

They let us park there prior to our check in because we arrived so early for the soccer games and even let us swim after the game while our room was being prepared. once we got in our... More

The Matador is a great place to stay! We looked at other nice places for less money, but in the end you get what you pay for, and we have no regrets in paying a bit more for this place. The location is prime - steps to the beach and right at the beginning of the boardwalk. We stayed in... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Matador, we did not spend a lot of time there as we are not one to sit around. The only suggestion I would have to improve things would be the bedding, I found the sheets were not adequate, the top sheet was too small and very thin. Other than that we were happy enough.

The Matador may not have a spa or restaurant bar with umbrella drinks, but its a place that becomes familiar, like a home away from home for all its guests. Now if you are a true NJ shore vacationer, that's what you truly want. Kick off your sandy shoes and relax, have fun or do whatever.
