Be aware, this is not a trustworthy place, not because you have a reservation through booking.com for example, that you have your room guaranteed as suppose to be. Our group had gotten a reservation, but no rooms were available at the check in time, they send us to check at another place totally inappropriate for rent , It was ridiculous... More

I booked a 2 bedroom apartment for the night, they called me the day before saying that the apartment had been damaged and they would give us 2 rooms instead, so I said ok, I understood that is what a hotel has to do when they are fully booked or has damage. When I got there this kid at the... More

I was in town for business and brought my wife and two young children for a long weekend stay. I grew up staying in motels on the Jersey shore line but wife has not. She was shocked at the hectic nature of a boardwalk motel and minimalist room. We arrived a day early and were accommodated with the last room... More

The photos on there website must have been taken a long time ago, because it isn't what they say. First if you came an hour early they wanted to charge you an extra 35.00 to check in early. I have never experience that - second there are no closets to hang clothes and every time you open and closed the... More

We typically do not have early check in during our peak summer weekends due to the number of guests who stay with us. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our early check in... More

This was our second year in a row going to the Boardwalk Seaport Inn. The rooms our on the smaller side but the location can't be beat. The hotel is right on the boardwalk and you get access to a deck on the third floor that overlooks the boardwalk and the beach. There's nothing better after a day on the... More

We booked a night here on our road trip based on better reviews an nice photos but were very disappointed to find a hotel 15 yrs behind on a maintenance overhaul. We definitely didn't get what we paid for. If being right on the boardwalk is more important than anything else to you, then go but don't look back

Dear Guest, We understand your stay was enjoyable in our clean, comfortable rooms right on the boardwalk.

The front desk team kept it secure until they could identify the appropriate owner of it (as no registered guest... More

I booked a room here based upon the reviews I read. I am sure they stuff the ballot box with friends, etc. It was a real dive. I have been to worse, so I gave it two stars. I figured it would be cool being by the beach. The beach was great, turning around to go back to the Inn,... More
