My husband and I were looking for a spot at Seaside Heights to enjoy a little get-away for a few days. We always enjoyed trips to Seaside, but our go-to motel was torn down and made into a parking lot, leaving us unsure of where to stay without worrying what the experience would be like. After reading many reviews of... More

Our room, double occupancy, had a table and chairs to sit at. A small fridge, microwave, sink and a two burner cooktop. We didn't use the cook top but did use everything else. The staff is great, very attentive and helpful. For the price you can't beat this place. Close to the boardwalk and centrally located to go to Island... More

Franklin Terrace is just about your best bet on the jersey shore. Being only about one half block from the boardwalk and beach you are close enough to enjoy all activities but not too close to be bothered by the noise. The hotel and staff are about the best you can expect. Overly accommodated any request we inquired. The rooms... More

We stayed at the motel on their Summer Deal from Sunday to Thursday $349 special. The owners of the motel are all very nice and accomodating, always on the property 24/7.When we checked in they helped me to my room with my bags and made sure everything was okay. The room is big and has a kitchenette in it so... More

We arrived early and were allowed to check in and get settled. The room was clean and quaint. I was happy there was a microwave and refrigerator. We loved the pool and the employees were more than accommodating. Extra and fresh towels when we needed them, beach passes and a parking pass along with walking distance to and from the... More

The room is clean and sort of adequate. It is good for the economy of Seaside Hts. because there is no where to sit except on the beds. So you cant spend time in your room. Be aware there are no cooking utensils in the room although there is a microwave, fridge, sink, and cooktop. Staff is very nice. Bathroom... More

Because this is a motel, I knew not to expect for this place to be amazing; however, this place was a lot better than I thought it would be. It was clean and it wasn't to far from the boardwalk. If you are a young person that likes to party, then you would love it here because it is right... More

I'm writing this review because my stay with the Franklin Terrace Motel was probably the worst motel experience I've ever had in my life.

It's hard to find a great hotel in Seaside because so many are tiny, dirty, and super expensive. This one is a block from the boardwalk, the rooms are a good size, and they clean every day. We stayed in this hotel twice. The first time the floors were dirty, but everything else was clean. The second time everything was... More
