small family owned motel just steps from the boardwalk. There was a club or something nearby so loud music until 3am . . . but it's kind of to be expected in this classic Jersey Shore town. A beach pass is included in the price of the room. Check out was a little early - 10am. Rooms include microwave, refrigerator,... More

This is a VERY basic motel that I'd never consider booking if it was situated anywhere else; however on a August weekend this was the only thing available close to Seaside Heights boardwalk that was available at the last minute and I took a room. The experience was mixed. PROS: clean overall; helpful and accommodating staff; LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION (one... More

We had bed bugs, the water in the tub didn't go down, the floor was dirty, and my friend and I both got sick the day after we left. It was a disappointing experience which left a lot more to be desired.

I had a very good experience at the Franklin Terrace Motel. It was less than two blocks from the beach. Staff was so nice that when I left my iphone charger in my room after I checked out, one of their employees tracked me down at the bus stop a quarter mile away to return it! My olnly complaint is...

Stayed at the Franklin Terrace Motel for 2 days August 13-15. It was better than expected. The rooms were clean. Very close access to boardwalk. Was surprised to see my room beds were made each day and towels replaced. I am absolutely recommending to friends/family. The price was perfect! Thank you to a wonderful/friendly staff.

Repeat Customer. My wife and two sons love this place. We stayed here last year, and again this year, and plan on coming back again! It's a Family run business, and it shows. Franklin Terrace Motel is very reasonably priced, and is well worth it. They have a small pool, and it is nicely secluded so passerby's on the street... More

There were no flaws with my stay at Franklin Terrace Motel. I recommend anyone visiting Seaside Heights stay at this motel, 150%. The room I had originally booked was unavailable so I was upgraded which I was very pleased with. The cleanliness of the room was very impressive due to the sandy beach area. The cost of my stay was... More

Nothing fancy here. Just a short walk to the beach and boardwalk. Everyone I encountered at the front desk were really nice and friendly. They actually told me it was cheaper ($69 cheaper) to cancel my reservation thru the phone app I had made and just book thru them. Appreciated that! We were given 2 free beach tags so we... More
