I stay here at least a few times a month all year round when I go to visit family. I am always taken care of by the very attentive and polite manager during my stay. They are very reasonably priced and provide fresh tea and coffee which is very convenient. I recommend that anyone going to Seaside should stay here... More

Under new management... used to be called the Sands. Let me just say that our room/motel was a dump. I've stayed in Seaside before, so I certainly wasn't expected luxury or anything close to it, but this was bad. Got a room with a double bed and didn't expect the room to be so small. There was hardly enough room... More

I was excited to visit Seaside Heights to support the businesses that are coming back from Super Storm Sandy, but Hotel Charlee only looks ready on the outside. When you walk up, it looks colorful and fresh and modern, but our room was in a state of mild distress. The bathroom was a DIY mess with tiles that didn't go... More

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

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 !
