I don’t expect much from hotels down the shore, but this one was awful. We had the 3 bedroom room suite and it was quite dirty (bugs and hair in the beds), the bathtub didn’t work and most of the fixtures were falling apart / broken. The manager on duty was also rather rude. When we expressed our dissatisfaction with... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the details of your stay. We understand your room was clean and comfortable but there was a drainage issue. Our maintenance team is glad they were able to speed up the drain to prevent the inch of water that built up during a shower. We are unsure as to what your other comments refer to... More

The room was clean with fresh towels but furniture was old and missing hardware. Bathroom was very small and the room was run down. The free breakfast included apples, muffins and coffee. The TV was small but the wifi was good. The beach was one block away and a very nice location. The employees all seemed very friendly.

Stay away. I have pretty much given up on all Choice Hotels because of this place. I contacted them three weeks in advance about changing my reservation. I heard back from them late afternoon on the day of my check-in. Dozens of phone calls and emails later and I still can't get any response beyond a generic "sorry", "we can't... More

It's clean and a little small but perfect for a cheap beach side hotel for a couple. Service was phenomenal. All of the staff was super nice and friendly. It's only a couple minute walk to the beach so easy to get around. Great for any first time couples looking to get away.

I have stayed in many hotels in Seaside Heights. By far, this is the cleanest hotel. The location is nice as well. It's located at the end of the beach. I found it peaceful and quiet. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed overnight in Seaside Heights in August. The owner seemed nice at the beginning, and was willing to help us with what we needed. We checked in to our room and immediately I noticed that the floor was subpar. There were multiple hairs, a nail, and stepped in gum. We were only staying for one night, so we tried... More

While in New Jersey for business and having an exhausting day we stopped at the Econo Lodge because it was close to the eating establishments. Biggest mistake ever. First the parking was ridiculous. We went around the block to actually find the lot and then there were signs marked for another hotel. We parked anyway because there was no where... More

1) SECURITY.... how about we keep the exit doors closed. Open all night long? Really? 2) LOUD.... sounded like a party in the hall until 4:00 AM. Headphones weren't enough. 3) SMALL ... Room was kinda clean, but very small and stuffy. No room for a sitting chair. 4) FLUSH.... Toilet didn't flush. 5) SMELL.... Smelled musty. No window screens.... More
