The room is not large but it is CLEAN. We were only in the room to sleep and change, did not need anything fancy and this was perfect. The owners were polite and very helpful, buy your beach passes from here too. The location is perfect! Park your car and walk to whatever you want to do. Stayed 3 night... More

My three friends and I traveled from Albany Ny down to the shore for a girls vacatioin. Booking the hotel was easy and the owners were very helpful. We did the 4 night special which was totally worth it. Once we got there they were super friendly and even switched our rooms so that we wouldnt have to stay in... More

Overall I was very pleased with the accommodations provided by Buoy 16. My fiancé and I were looking for a an inexpensive trip to the Jersey shore. The Motel was very well kept and the management very friendly. The outside appeared to be recently renovated with all new windows throughout at well. Our room was small but clean. One queen... More

An ok motel if you're on a budget and just want to crash between visits to the beach. The Staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. The room was adequate in size, but only had a bed, futon, dresser and 2 floor lamps and no maid service. For a table, were brought a folding tv tray table. A desk, small table... More

We stayed overnight. For a last minute booking it was a good price. The owner was very nice and on site all the time. The room was spacious and had a full size fridge. I was a little concerned that they kept my ID while we had the beach passes, although they did toss in an extra pass for my... More

Clean......, for the most part. Old tattered towels, cheap everything etc. I received a lecture about partying and noise, then was escorted down a loud hallway with people clearly partying in their rooms. Not sure why people say the owners were nice. One of the brothers almost jumped the desk at check-out because I mentioned being charged for one level... More

boardwalk and beach was extremely close; the rooms were clean and the management was nice and very helpful. only problem that some might not like is bc it is so close to the beach and the boardwalk, it gets a little noisy at night, but that's all. highly recommend and when we come back to seaside, we plan to stay...

Must say we had a pretty pleasant experience when staying at the Buoy 16. Check in was easy, the room was ready earlier than the actual check in time, so they let us know which was nice. One of the first things I do when arriving to the room is to move a piece of furniture to see if they... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. It was great. The place is clean and management is very helpful. It is right in the middle of everything going on. Extremely quiet for where it is located. We are going to go back to this motel every time we go to Seaside. The only downfall if you have kids there is no pool.
