Had to stay here as only motel in town that would take small dog. Later found out Quality Inn is pet friendly. AC noisy and barely worked. Old, out-dated decor. Afraid to sit on couch or chairs w/o a sheet covering them. Bed hard as a rock, mattress covered in plastic, and also afraid to use the blanket. No window... More

I just got home today and never wrote a review before but I just have to warn people. First of all the price I paid for this dump is a sin, $525 for 4 people and Two small dogs for 2 nights . I was told the only room left was an efficiency but that was a lie, the place... More

After an extensive search I found that this is the only place in Seaside Heights that allows pets during the summer season. I read all the terrible reviews from previous visitors but decided to go and make my own decision based on my own experience there. Staff was very helpful and friendly. My dogs were treated great and there weren't... More

I booked this motel on a Sunday evening. On Monday morning my husband and I realized we could not go. I contacted the motel right away. The woman on the phone was extremely nasty and said that they would still have to charge our card 30.00!!!!!!! This is so unfair and not good business practice! Thank goodness I cancelled! I...

My husband and I booked this with our dog. We wanted somewhere that we could bring our dog and this was the only place in Seaside Heights. I was excited about going here because I have never been to this beach town before and wanted to see where the Jersey Shore was filmed. It was run down and old looking.... More

This place is a disgusting dump. The manager and his crew are SCAMMERS who will find a way to keep your security deposit! They love having kids come down on prom week-end...that's when they make their money. None of the security deposits are returned because they mysteriously find ways to scam if from you. Dirty place, dirty management...beware!

DO NOT STAY HERE. In addition to the rooms being dirty and disgusting (along as the manager) they are thieves, and try everything to keep your deposit. Check everything in your rooms when you first get in.

This hotel is a dump. I knew when I checked in & I had to leave a deposit for the tv remote (and then she handed me the remote in a ziplock bag) that we were in trouble. The room was dirty. The sheets had burn holes in them. We used our beach towels as blankets instead of their GROSS... More
