Room smelled of mold - had a broken window, torn rug, no wifi signal from our room, we were on the end of the loop and had little or no hot water for showers. We checked out a day early. Motel is across from boardwalk

The couch looked liked someone was murdered on it, the beds were scary and gross, the bathroom was tiny and the floors in it were spongy from the saturation and mold growing under the tile. I checked in at 2pm and returned the keys at 10pm, I couldn't even think about sleeping in there so I am currently disputing the... More

It was not a very good experience to begin with. When we arrived they told us our room was ready, we get the keys to the room and when we get there the door was open and who ever was there had JUST checked out. Room was a total mess, well of course it hadn't been cleaned yet. Later on... More

Recently checked in and out of this motel within a 1/2 hour.. I made the horrible mistake of paying for the room before I saw it.. When I first entered the room the 1st thing I noticed was the broken door, at first I thought it was do able but quickly realized neither lock worked.. I went back to the... More

Okay place to stay. All you need is a bed shower, TV. This place fit that bill. Although party time on Friday and Saturday. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will be going back. The location is awesome best there. Nice pool.

Most unfriendly or actually Aggressive treatment ever, the lady at the reception kept screaming at me when I asked for beach passes because I didn't read a paper in front of her saying that I should give my original driving license to get beach passes.. Room wasn't clean and smelly .. The pool is on the street .. Couldn't continue... More

Dump! Pool was dirty and room had cracks and loose ceiling tiles. Shower was in such bad shape we decided since we were only there for a night not to use it. However the location is good, across the street from the Boardwalk.

I stayed here recently with a friend and we each rented a room on the third floor. We picked this place because it was affordable and very close to the boardwalk. I mean for $99 a night and being that close to the boardwalk, I figured "eh how bad can it be right". Well I should have read more reviews... More

Needed to get away for 1 night to be able to rest and get a good nights sleep. My kids and I were woken up by the maintenance man outside our room using a generator to power wash the balcony and the wall and door to our room. Not only did we wake up to this at 9 am, but... More

My sister and I came to the jersey shore for a huge music festival. There were only 5 United States tour dates chosen by a British band, I'm assuming they chose Seaside Heights because they had no idea of it's not so shiny reputation. Despite what we had heard, this was the closest location for us so we came. This... More
