Motel staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was pretty clean but terribly outdated and in desperate need of some repairs. AC ran all day and room was still hot in the evening, even in mid September. It was ok for a place to sleep and shower but I wouldn't stay there again. Stayed in room 214.

If you are looking for an acceptable motel with the best location and lowest price, this is it. The motel is just a block from the middle of the boardwalk. Let's not kid ourselves, it's not a Hilton, but it's clean and perfect for people that just need a decent place to sleep while spending all day at the beach.... More

You can't beat the location at one block off the middle of the boardwalk. The room itself was fair for the two nights we stayed. The beds aren't comfortable. The TV is only really visible from one bed. The staff was nice, and they repaired our door quickly after we got locked in our room! The air conditioning was cold... More

Well I should have listened to the reviews but we booked late and there wasn't much available close to the boardwalk without spending over $300/night. So we took a chance.....shower had mold and mildew in the outdated bathroom and it didn't drain well so you stand in an inch of water while trying to get "clean" , quickest shower I... More

only stayed for an over night vacaton. The room was clean. The decor was a bit dated, but for an over night visit and only a block away from the boardwalk, who cares. The women at the front desk were very nice.

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
