I just stayed at the Impala Island Inn 7/11 thru 7/13. It's a typical shore-type motel, a bit dated and smells somewhat musty. My biggest concern was with the Life-guard on duty!! I was at the pool on Saturday afternoon from 12:30 till 5:00 (closing time). Many people had young children at the pool area. The Life-guard was constantly on... More

Hadn't been to the Impala in a few years and am left with mixed reviews on the improvements made since my last visit. While the flat screen TV and the modest entertainment center in our room was a welcomed addition, the loss of the table and chairs and moving the small refrigerator to the closet was disappointing. It’s clear the... More

We got a "great" deal on a 2 bedroom according to the manager the room was just redone. While the bedrooms and bathroom may have been redone the kitchen was not. The dishwasher sounded like it was going to explode when you used it. The location of the room was great however the maids cart rammed into the chairs all... More

We stayed at the Impala Island Inn at the recommendation of a friend and I was so pleased with her recommendation that I want to pass it along to others looking for a place to stay in Ocean City, N.J. We were warmly greeted by the front desk staff, who processed our reservation paperwork and told us about the parking... More

50+ family members stayed at the Impala Island Inn for the Nth time in decades on June 13th-16th. The day prior to leaving for Ocean City we had a medical emergency with my father, and expecting to not be able to attend, we sadly cancelled our reservation. The Impala was kind enough to refund our deposit despite the 1-day cancellation... More

My husband and I used trip advisor to locate a place for one night down the shore. The ratings were good so we decided to stay one night at the Impala. The room was clean, the person at the front desk allowed us to check in early and all of our questions were answered. The only negative was the trash... More

We have stayed at the impala for at least 5 years now- always early June and the prices cannot be beat (beach tags included). We have stayed in one of their apartments (#100) the last 3 years and have found it perfect for our needs! The bedding seems to be better than the reg hotel rooms and it is better... More

We recently spent a weekend at the Impala Island Inn as part of a metal detecting event at the Music Pier. Many of the people attending this event stayed at the Impala as part of the weekend. The weekend started off on the wrong foot, when we discovered that parking was impossible to find. Several reviews of the Impala have... More

We stayed here on the off-season for Doo Dah weekend. The room was clean and had a nice sized TV. Rooms are outdated but it is a beach town motel so that is to be expected. The location is awesome! Only a block to the boardwalk and beach. The rides at Castaway Cove are literally in the back yard! We... More

Our family has stayed here every summer for the past 16 years. It's perfectly located right off the beach and is clean and convenient to everything in OC. A bit noisy sometimes since it's right next to an amusement park, but we wouldn't stay anyplace else. Of course you pay dearly for the experience of being that close to the... More
