We stayed in unit 605 for a long weekend at the end of February to celebrate a late Valentine's Day. The unit is privately owned and hotel is very close to the boardwalk and beach. The room was very clean and newly updated with modern appliances. It was a very cozy and comfortable with awesome ocean view. We got lucky... More

Great hotel for a get away in or out of the season. The hotel is in the process of being upgraded and the lobby is under construction. The view from Unit 605 is to die for panoramic views of the ocean from the 6th floor with an Ocean view from every window in the unit. The owner says the unit... More

I am always fascinated by older hotels and the Homestead Hotel fits the bill. My visit was brief but very enjoyable for my wife and I. We went for a 3 day weekend and simply fell in love with the old world charm of a hotel built in 1929 but had a newly renovated room (#407) that had the original... More

We stayed in rm510. It has a small bay window looking out to the ocean. Very cute! We never moved our car. Everything you could want is in walking distance. The room was spotless and nicely decorated. Looking forward to going back. We liked the feel of being in a condo and not a hotel room.

My fiancée and I first stayed in room 607 at the Homestead Beach Hotel Memorial Day weekend in 2011. We liked it so much that we booked the same room for the July 4 weekend. We've been back at least once a year every year since then. Why? Location, convenience, and price. The boardwalk and beach are less than a... More

I stayed there last summer and will be back next month for a week. The units are small but has everything you need. Our unit faced the ocean. It is so close to the board walk. There is no parking unless you want to pay. You just need to drive around alittle and you will find a free place to... More

This place is dirty and small. Our key to get in the place didn't work. It was VERY hot because the air conditioner didn't work. There was a creepy old man everywhere we went. They said there was ice but we couldn't find it anywhere. It was in a good location but not a good place to stay in. This... More

. This was a wonderful place to stay. First you have to understand that these are privately owned units. Our unit although small had a nice view of the boardwalk and some of the ocean. It was clean and nicely appointed. Bathroom was small as was the entire unit. This is an older building so things were not as big... More

This place is the gateway to hell. I made reservations with my family. It is certainly not a family hotel. It would be much safer to sleep on the beach or under the boardwalk. We were very disappointed because the website is deceiving. Be warned.
