We weren't to sure what to expect when booking this hotel for our trip to Seaside Heights, but we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived around 11:30 which was too early to check in, but the front desk allowed us to park our vehicle in the parking lot while we went to the beach, which was very nice! The hotel had... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Charlee for several days and it was a real pleasure. The staff was friendly and helpful. Greg and Kevin printed directions to everywhere I wanted to go. The location was great, just a few steps from the boardwalk, convenience store, laundry. The renovations gave you a real sense of fresh and clean... More

From check in through check out I enjoyed it. It was way above my expectations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to seasides heights and would definitely stay there again. It was a great location. Walking distance to the boardwalk and convenience store. The pool was excellent. I can't find anything to complain about !

look at my review for boardwalk seaport inn over memorial day weekend. the hotel itself was very very average. it was pretty clean. the fridge was a freezer and they don't provide cleaning service until after your stay. it's well priced for teenagers looking to get away for a day or two.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your support after the major storm. When you were visiting, many of our staff members were still assisting us in other locations to get our hotels ready for our guests. Our staff are back to their normal duties and their help in restoring the shore was much appreciated. We also appreciated your visit so early... More

We stayed at the Sands last year, and even wrote a review recommending for everyone to stay there. Upon returning back this year, my boyfriend and I saw that it was under new management. We got to our room, "room 1", and it basically looked like a remodeled bathroom. The floor was covered in white tiles, no carpeting, and you... More

My family and I were looking for lodge on memorial day weekend- and were happy to find something two short blocks from the Seaside Boardwalk and a fair price (considering the time). It's basically a remodoled home. Clean, I guess (but arent they supposed to be?) - but so small you can't breathe and time and time again the owners... More

Dear Guest, We are glad you found your accommodations very clean (and yes we put in great efforts to maintain that). As far as the noise and visitors, Memorial Day Weekend is the official start of summer for most people, and their energy really shows. We do hope you do feel much more welcome on your next visit.

I booked this place with not much research because it was a last minute get away. Big mistake! (should have known because they didnt even have a portable crib for our 10month old) We got to our room and there was no toilet paper (not even the empty roll) so I go down to the office (cause there's no phone...
