I love it here!! The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. It is the closet hotel to the boardwalk. I didn't have to drive anywhere which was great. The pool is very clean and relaxing. I definitely will be coming back.

The staff was very friendly, the pool is warm, it's close to the beach, affordable, and doesn't smell like cigar. Overall it was fantastic. Sure to stay there next time. If you want to be close to the beach and a good price, this is your place.

So my one night stay went from $109 Trip Advisor price to $125 after taxes and then $150... Also I was told beach... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your concerns. The pricing and charges should have been properly explained as they are nothing out of the ordinary for seasonal Jersey Shore Motels to charge. We do our best to keep it affordable for our customers. Our resort package which is very inexpensive provides for discounts on beach pass's... More

I have been staying here for over 10 years and have always had a great experience! Awesome location just 1 block from boardwalk, friendly and helpful staff and clean rooms. They have a great outdoor pool and the contintental breakfast every morning is a great way to start my day.

Friendly Staff, Clean facilities, wonderful and relaxing pool, and family friendly place to stay. Reasonable prices and great local deals. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes the beach and a place that is very close to a lot of things to do.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years. It's within walking distance of all major attractions and bars. The rooms are always tidy and the staff is very accommodating. The pool is an added bonus. Great place to stay.

Best motel in Pt. Pleasant. My sister and I have been staying here for a girls weekend for the last several years. Office staff is very friendly and helpful, clean rooms, onsite parking. Excellent location, walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, several restaurants. We are looking forward to our stay this year!
