Ocean City has been my family's favorite NJ shore point since the 1970's. It's been 5 years since we last visited, and most of the places I'd stayed at in my youth are gone, replaced by new condos or in one case, a parking lot. I decided to take a chance on the Impala Island Inn because of its location... More

It sounds like you and your kids had a wonderful time in Ocean City! There are certainly plenty of fun things to do around here, and it sounds like you and your family may have hit them all.

This is a very nice and pretty hotel!!! My parents and I stay here a lot of the times when we go to Ocean City, New Jersey. It is fairly reasonable and everything is nice and well organized on both sides of the hotel. There is a restaurant called Blooming Tulip right across the street from Impala or if you're... More

Traveled with a friend to Ocean City NJ for their "first night" New Years celebration. I booked at the last minute, and felt lucky to find this delightful little place. The room was clean and basic, with comfortable double beds, a sofa bed, comfortable and quiet heating system, and plentiful towels. There was also a small fridge, and free wifi.... More

My wife, 1 1/2 year old daughter and I stayed at the Impala Island inn the weekend of Sept 20 for just two nights. The inn has off-street parking - and since this was off-season there were plenty of spots. We had a second floor pool-side room with a King bed. The bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows and blankets... More

A little expensive, but considering the convenience to the beach and boardwalk, it's worth the extra. Very disappointed there is no in-room coffee or coffee in lobby. Should be stated in your write-up about no coffee. We could have brought our travel coffee pot. Also, it would have been nice to have at least a 10% off purchase in your... More

My family of 4 stayed here for a weekend Basketball tournament, and this was group-booked by the team parent for all. We were initially given keys to a room that was already occupied. I pushed the door open and to my (and their) surprise, it was already being used. They barely offered an apology. Our room was very small, very... More

We come down every year, and have stayed at most of all the rooms. Rooms are clean, and like the hotel close to the beach and boardwalk. Will always... More
