I visited this hotel last year with a bunch of my friends and I loved it. The pretty girl at the desk was really sweet and went above and beyond our expectations. The rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. We were a block away from the beach which we got to go on for free because the hotel provided... More

My fiance and I stayed at Casa Del Mar in early August with our dog. The email and phone correspondence with Tobi prior to our arrival was great. She was very accommodating, able to answer all of our questions, and we really appreciated them allowing us to bring out dog. We were really very excited. So first off, this is... More

Jamie, it's truly disappointing to read this review. The last thing we'd want is for you to feel like your needs weren't met, so I apologize that your room wasn't what you were expecting. You're right, not all of our rooms are listed on our website, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be cleaned in a timely manner. I apologize... More

I couldn't have asked for a better weekend at the Jersey Shore!!! Tobi and Joanne went out of their way to make our experience the best it could be. We rented 4 rooms so our friends and family could spend the weekend together. Each room has its own style, charisma and charm. The rooms were clean and newly renovated. I... More

I wouldn't have cared so much if the pictures were an accurate representation. Let me be clear, it's a straight up dingy motel - not the fancy "by the beach" resort which is portrayed in the pictures. The check-in process was chaotic and the staff were all over the place (pretty sure they were high 90% of the time). I... More

While we welcome feedback from all of our guests, it’s truly disappointing to read this review. It’s disheartening to hear you found our hotel to be “dingy,” “dirty,” and “chaotic,” as that’s not the type of feedback we typically receive, nor is it the impression we wish to leave on our guests. Overall, if you have any constructive feedback to... More

This is a hidden gem! I have driven past this place a million times and never knew it was there. My friends and I stayed at Casa Del Mar for a bachelorette party.

This is an amazing, comfortable home away from home atmosphere. The staff Tobi, Joanna, Daniel, Melanie makes it even a better stay. Melanie is a wonderful person who made sure my family had everything we needed in our rooms. Spotless bedrooms,kitchen & bathroom. Clean sheets, towels & appliances. This second home is a highly recommended for a perfect vacation. I... More

Based on the wonderful reviews I read about Casa Del Mar, I tried to make a reservation for a one night stay in September.
