Wonderful place to stay. Very reasonable, nice staff, very clean rooms & right in the heart of all the fun activities on Seaside's boardwalk!

My husband, my 14 year old son, and his 17 year old friend,and I recently visited the Jersey shore, for our very first time. We had heard mixed reviews of the area and knew not what to expect. We took a room at another motel for one night, figuring we'd check out the place and see what we thought. To... More

I don't understand the bad reviews. We stayed for three nights and paid a great price. The location is amazing, yes the bathroom is small and the bedspreads are not new but I was not looking for the Ritz. Traveled with my husband and three kids. We are looking forward to next year and staying at the same place.

This was my family's first time staying in Seaside Heights and we wanted to find a place that was clean, convenient and considerate to our lodging needs. We found it all in this motel. We had a late check-in due to our traveling time and when we arrived, Ken was so pleasant as he greeted us outside. We had our... More

We arrived at the motel right at check in time and our room was ready and waiting for us. This is rare around here and I should say rooms not just room. The double room we had opened up to a full bed with tv, dining table with a view of the casino pier, microwave and fridge with a large... More

Like other reviews we were way over charged to the tune of 800 USD for 3 days. When our friends locked their keys in their car they wanted to charge us another 100 dollars for them to wait in the room while AAA came to open the doors! We had the VIP room but the noise made it hard to... More

I have stayed at the Sand and Surf several times. The very first time we stayed, we arrived late due to travel delays. The original hotel we booked gave up our room because we were not there when we said we would be. So there we were with four young children and no place to stay. We drove around Seaside... More

Sand and Surf has got to be the best place to stay in Seaside. I have been staying there since Jeff and Ken bought the place. I have looked around this past year to see what else was out there, maybe a place with a pool..well now I know not to bother. I've actually checked rooms in some of the... More
