We stayed here over the weekend! It was the worst experience I ever had at a hotel/motel ever! Upon arrival at 10:30am, I was told we could not get our beach badges for the day or park in the lot until 2pm. The staff especially the older man was extremely rude! Upon check-in, I was told I had a balance... More

I came down to Seaside for the weekend with friends and made reservations to stay here. We were on a tight budget deciding where to stay so I was not expecting the highest quality but having stayed at motels in Wildwood for the same price I wasn't expecting it to be horrible either. Let me tell you it was. Upon... More

The location could not be beat and the set-up of the suite was great. It was surprisingly quiet and the bathroom was clean. It was a bit confused at check-In, but the staff was nice. There was no maid service between Saturday and Sunday and we could have used the recycling bin emptied. Also, the A/C had a hard time... More

Was booked for 3 days, but after taking one look of this place 1 day was way too many. Rooms do not appear clean (more about that in a Min). At check in, was given our towel's and the remote for the TV?? Went up to the room and out to the boardwalk. We came back in the evening, and... More

Really enjoyed our stay, thanks so much! Management was great (thanks for the tip on the Crab Claws restaurant) , the rooms were clean (easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 teenagers). Hopefully we'll be back next year (all the way from Virginia).

This hotel is in a great location just off the boardwalk and overlooking the beach. The owners are vigilant about keeping people who are not guests at the motel out. This is understandable with so many people up and down the boardwalk all the time. This is more of a "self serve" motel, you need to turn in your towels... More

My in laws got a room for four days, and invited us to visit. We brought our two year old and 8 month old as well. When we arrived, it was to the manager yelling at my father in law, because my brother in law walked into their room to get his keys. Even after my father in law told... More

We stayed here for three nights during the week. Room was clean, bathroom was good, Owners here work the front desk, and they were quite nice. This motel has several policies in place that I'm sure are a result of having unruly guests, such as an extra deposit in case of damage to the room. Understandable - it is the... More
