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Very quaint room, outdated yes, but clean and comfy, Beds were extremely hard.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

Our family of five stayed at this hotel for one night in August. We were happy to have found a hotel that allowed a one night stay and one that could accommodate the five of us. The hotel was a block away from the beach, which was a plus, too. We read the comments that the hotel needed updating (which... More

We just returned today from four wonderful days in Ocean City, where we stayed at Coral Sands.the location a block from the boardwalk and beach was great. There is a restaurant attached to the motel, with delicious pancakes and omelettes which is very reasonable with efficient staff....I recommend it highly. They are very accommodating to all. Now about the motel...very... More

We spent a week in Ocean City at the Coral Sands. I found it to be a typical beach motel. The rooms were clean, average-sized and had a refrigerator and microwave and free WiFi connection. We declined daily housekeeping during our stay but we were given fresh towels, trash bags, soaps etc every morning. The staff were always pleasant and... More
