We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean, accessible to boardwalk, bike rentals and beach. Pool was great and also very clean. Pictures dont do this place justice. Bath and body works toiletries in bathrooms! Will be staying here again!

We have stayed at the Impala Island Inn at least twice a year for the past 5 years. Very nice little family motel. Always clean, quiet and staff is very friendly and helpful. It is located only a short half block from the boardwalk so is very convenient to everything. The prices are some of the lowest in OCNJ. They... More

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for the second time. Unlike the first trip, this time we had a room in the north building. It did not seem as roomy as the previous room in the east wing. The room was quite clean, and we appreciated that housekeeping cleaned the sand off the carpet each day.... More

Happy to hear you're a fan of our location! The north side rooms are a bit smaller, and therefore less expensive. We appreciate your input on the bathroom vanity and the tub. It's my hope that we'll be able to "wow" you with a five-star worthy experience next time out! Thanks again! More

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.

Thanks for sharing about your visit, and I hope we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back again. We'd love to show you another wonderful time! More

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

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
