I would definetly not recommend this Motel!!! The manager send us to another Motel ("Village Inn") that was 3 blocks farther away from the beach. He just said that the Motel is overbooked, He was very unprofessional. In the end we accepted the fact, because we stayed for just 1 night in Jersey. He promised that the place would be... More

I stayed at this motel for a women's weekend getaway, and my daughter came as well. As soon as we got there, there was no parking in their small parking lot. The room was very gross! There was a cigerate butt on the floor, mold in the sink, phone did not work, we had to clean the tub with bleach,... More

My daughters and grand daughter (age 2) had been planning this short getaway since April. The website pictures of the motel were really nice and the place was quite affordable. Upon arrival our first clue was when we said "This doesn't look like the website"...... The door did not bolt shut, the telephone had no cord, the smoke detector was... More

This place is absolutely disgusting. First of all, it is not the Sand Castle Motel, it is Cloud 9 Motel. Upon arriving, we were asked to pay $40 each for beach passes that when we returned we got our money back, which we did. We entered our room (3 beds with small kitchen) the first thing I noticed was the... More

This hotel was clean, with cozy rooms, seems recently updated and in the perfect location. Once we arrived, we didn't have any problem until we checked out. It seemed to promote nice guests-everyone was courteous and friendly. The manager tried his best to see that we were happy and enjoyed ourselves. Here we were treated like family. We will definitely... More

Do not stay here! This is by far the Worst place I have ever stayed at! I found this motel through an online agent and the description made it seem like it was a reasonable place. Upon arriving, the owner/manager was EXTREMELY rude to us and not welcoming at all. The room was disgusting! The bed cover had a huge... More

This was a sad experience. My husband and I stayed at this hotel over 20 years ago, and it was a nice place at that time. We decided to stay here again, after not having much luck getting a decent room in Seaside the last few years and here is our experience. The room was not updated since we last... More

I can't imagine anyone giving this hotel a positive rating. The rooms are dirty (feces on the bathroom wall, toilet dirty, carpet filthy, bed linens dirty), the toilet didn't flush, and there was a 1" crack around the door frame where you could see outside. We booked the travel through the motel and when we got there and saw the... More
