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

My wife, 17 month old daughter and I stayed here on a recent weeknight. We arrived around 12.30 PM (check in is at 3.00 PM), and the manager was able to get us a room on the first floor right away. The room had a fridge but no microwave; we requested a microwave (useful for warming up milk at 2.00... More

Wasn't expecting much from Econo Lodge, but the good looking host at front desk not only was nice and polite, but he gave me a good rate when asked to do better than normal weekend rate. Space was clean and minutes from the boardwalk.

Where do I start? Our experience with the Seaside Heights Econo Lodge was so overwhelmingly horrible, I'm not sure where to begin. We are a family of 4 with 2 small children. We booked this hotel with my sister in law and her family when it was still known as Hotel Charlie. The photos on the website gave the impression... More

My 12 year old daughter and I stayed at the Econo Lodge for two nights 17July-19 July for a lacrosse tournament being held in Tom's River. It did the trick and I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't sure what we would find in Seaside Heights given the fact that Hurricane Sandy swept through less than two years ago and from... More

We rented the "family room" that sleeps 6. It was very clean and good for a family. The staff was friendly and it is just a short walk to the beach/boardwalk. My only complaint is that the shower was very small and the shower head wouldn't adjust.

The hotel is a 4min walk to the boardwalk. They let us check in earlier which was perfect because we really wanted to enjoy the beach as most as possible. The room was extremely tiny. We had a double bed and we could barely walk inside the room. Its true that you don't spend much time in the room but... More

Stayed here so we could see a different part of New Jersey for on night - was a little hesitant after reading some previous reviews. Checkin was smooth and easy and yes the room was tiny, but we don't come on holidays to stay in our room. The location was great a quick walk to the boardwalk but well enough... More
