This hotel was so clean and just a block off the boardwalk.The rides were a stones throw away too. The restaurant at the hotel was very good and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. The only downfalls were parking...you had to find a lot across the street and walk to the hotel and no microwaves.

After staying here last year and liking proximity to everything we decided to come back. I have been in hospitality for 16 years and operate a top rated Inn, which makes short family getaways so important when they can be squeezed in. When we arrived at 1AM (after calling first to be sure it was ok) there was no one... More

Thank you for taking the time to express your view on your recent stay. I have spoken with the night clerk and am unclear why he was not able to tell you where our four parking areas are, that surround the property. As a rule, our housekeeping staff prides itself on cleanliness. That you had two disappointments is very upsetting.... More

Stayed here for three nights/four nights and had two rooms next to each other, 505 & 507. Check in was a breeze and office was friendly and accomodating. The rooms we had were the Southside Deluxe ones that had two queen size beds and a sofa bed. Small round table with two chairs, TV and dorm size fridge. Kick butt... More

Our family stayed at the Impala sharing with relatives in Rm. 214. Great layout with full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, and full bath. Very nice updates to bathroom and Thomasville furniture in bedrooms. The newer mattresses were comfortable and the pull out sofa ment no one had to share a bed. The bathroom was fully stocked and clean. Very... More

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
