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

Bed dirty under fitted sheet that kept coming off. No hot water. Very dirty room. People next to us up all night outside the room. Only thing nice was pool and walking distance to boardwalk. Couldn't connect to the free Wi-Fi. Bed uncomfortable also

Stayed for two nights while attending the Gentlemen of the Road beach concert. Covers a short beach block with direct boardwalk access. Parking is a 5 minute walk away-no problem at all. On-site management was very uptight, probably due to the concert. We are a couple in their 50's and found it onerous that they were worried about us selling... More

I spent my vacation at the shore. I had a nice room with a microwave and a refrigerator. Sine the motel is on the ocean, it was a short walk to the beach. The rooms were clean and cozy. The staff was very helpful and extremely nice. I definitely will come to this hotel for my vacation.

My husband and I stay here every year with our two children. The hotel is nice an clean. Owners are very personable and they have great security. We have stayed other places and I would say this is the best motel if you want to be right on the boardwalk/beach. Very reasonably priced, too!

No disappointment here! Room was small but clean and the rooftop deck is a great place to hang out. Being just steps from the boardwalk is awesome! The owner Kimo was very attentive. Will be going back here in the next few weeks!!

Thank you for your review. The reservation that you made by phone was for 4 Adults and 2 Children. Upon arrival, you brought an additional 4 persons. I asked if I could provide you another room for your additional guests but you declined stating that it would cost too much. The cost of the room was $822 + 12% state... More

Went to the Jersey Shore on a whim and came across the Sand and Surf Motel. The rooms very comfortable and very clean. The views of the beach were amazing. You would have never known that this area had been hit by Sandy.

Stayed here for summer and enjoyed it. Staff was great. When i needed something had no problem going to office to get it. Read thru some of neg comments and people wanting shampoo and what not people it is not the Ritz Carlton. However it is right on the boardwalk next door to the Shore store and Jersey Shore house.
