Room was small but clean. Check in was easy and pleasant. Major problem was early morning noise from Post Office right behind our room and other people staying here were loud and made things uncomfortable to sit outside of room. Actually it was that bad that people next to us who I think may live here were at our table... More

The hotel is very old and dated, however it was clean. It is in a very good location. A block from the boards and beach. The people were very nice. There was a really good breakfast place on the premises. But....the beds were like sleeping on ply wood not good for my husband's neck. The shower was like one you... More

Everything about this hotel was wrong. The room in their pictures was nothing like the one we stayed in. First off we had to check in late, 7:30pm. When we entered the room, (105) there was an overbearing musty/moldy smell that permeated the entire room. The room did not have a kitchenette like advertized, it had a microwave on a... More

I'm not very fusy when need an inexpensive room but...if your planning on staying here in the summer...it isn't worth it. Rooms are small, beds are hard, no coffee pots, hair dryers or shampoo etc. etc. etc...no pool and the parking lot is so small you can barely get out of it....needs an overhaul and they can afford it!

Stayed at the coral sands for a girls weekend for my mothers birthday in July of 2014 and was very impressed! My family are complete germaphobes and they didn't have one thing to complain about! Everything was clean, comfortable, and the staff was very kind! I loved how close we were to the beach and Boardwalk, and there honestly wasn't... More

Very quaint room, outdated yes, but clean and comfy, Beds were extremely hard. Air conditioner had a piece of cardboard taped to it and ice machines were not working in April. But the staff was extremely nice and got us some ice from the restaurant next door. Motel is located one block from the beach and music pier, so it's... More

This motel has an ideal location for staying in OCNJ, but heavens is it asking too much for an update to the (80's 90's or beyond?) The place was clean enough, but it was like being thrown back to a dorm room of the 50's. Everything in the room except the TV and WIFI were OLD or OLD LOOKING. Sometimes,... More

I love OCNJ but have a real problem with the hotel offerings in town. This place is a great example of why. It's old. Just old and dated. It's clean enough, but nothing special on an astronomical level. And that's fine other than the fact that the rates are seasonlly still quite high. The pro.... the owner and any staff... More
