We went for the 4th of July holiday and did not call enough places. I chose this before finding Trip Advisor. Had a room near the boardwalk but because of issues with people using facilities without paying you have to wear bracelets and if you need a towel you need to turn in a towel. No floor mat in bathroom... More

The Sand and Surf Motel is perfect for a stay in Seaside Heights. The rooms are very clean, reasonably priced and adequate - nothing fancy, just basic accommodations which is really all you need. The really great thing is that some of the rooms have two separate rooms within them which was great for me because I came down with... More

I did not like that I could not book this motel online. You have to fill out a questioneer and then wait to be contacted by the motel. I did not feel comfortable giving my credit card to someone calling me so I waited until I arrived to see if they had rooms. The front desk workers were not very... More

He accommodates his guest in every way possible. The location of the motels lot was just a few steps away. The motel is... More

I was highly pleased with the accomodations and the cleanliness of the room. I did not have any trouble with checking in or out and my deposit was returned to me in cash. The motel is... More

We just came back from this motel. It was absolutely amazing. The rooms we had were immaculate and clean. Jeff and Ken the owners of the property were accomidating, courteous, and were always around in case of any problems. People complain about the wristbands and the security, however, it is for our own safety. I felt at home and was... More

Stayed here for past several yrs. always enjoyed ourselves. This yr, NEVER AGAIN. Prices decent, but me and my five guests were harassed entire time there by the Wristband Gestapo. Nickled and dimed for everything under the sun. We never got more than 6 towels for the 6 ppl who stayed there for two nights and complained of non-working refrigerator,... More

Rooms are small but ok. Walls are way too thin you could everything from your next door neighbor. Overall ok, it didn't have that motel smell which was a big plus for us. The location was perfect. Front desk attend very friendly.
