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

We spent a very enjoyable week in Ocean City. We found the Coral Sands to be a typical resort motel. The rooms were average size and clean. The bathroom had an average-size shower stall. We chose not to have daily housekeeping but we were given fresh towels, soaps, trash bags, etc. every morning.The post office was next door and sometimes... More

When we pulled up to this motel squeezed between the post office and a restaurant with a tiny compact parking lot. I instantly felt my vacation excitement deflate. The lady at the desk was very pleasant when we arrived, but when check out time came around she had a, "Don't let the door hit you on the way out," kind... More

Stayed here last minute one night summer 2013. Room small. Not that nice but ok for a pinch. Price was good. However found a Brown roach crawling on hour clothes laid on table. Won't stay here again.....

I had a wonderful weekend in Ocean City with my daughters and grandsons. The Coral Sands was clean, affordable, and so close to the beach. Jane is a very good hostess. My grandsons are 3, 2 and 2months and were a little restless at times. But no one complained. All in all it was a great weekend of memories for... More

My hubby and I spent 3 nights there from last Sunday to Wednesday. The rooms are very clean. I loved that the towels were soft and smelled good. The owner Jane was very nice and welcoming. Everything worked well in the room. Very quiet place great to get rest after a long day. Great location very close to the Board... More
