There were great facilities in the room and it was spacious enough for 4 people to share. Good shower with immediate hot water. Air conditioning was a little loud but that is... More

Not only was the stay comfortable and relaxing, the service was incredible and the location was perfect for a awesome weekend at the jersey shore! I am definitely coming back next weekend! The rooms were clean and on hot days its nice to come back to just hang out with family and friends.

My sister and I traveled from Michigan to Seaside for the weekend (July15th-17th, 2011). Our room was perfect for us - much more than we were expecting. We loved the kitchen, fridge, and balcony. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! I felt like they really cared about us and were looking out for us at all times. I hope... More

Stayed there with my 4 children. We had such a great time this will be a "home away from home" for us in the summer. The rooms were very clean & tidy! Highly recommend this cozy stay at the shore! The owners were on the grounds which shows their dedication to making our stay perfect! I am booking for next... More

First of all, it took 4 calls to even book a room - first try, someone's mother answered the phone and couldn't help us, second try the person who answered was in her car and couldn't help us, third try got voice-mail, fourth try finally was able to book. At no point did they ever offer to call me back... More

Stayed here for an end of summer vacation with my 2 friends. The price was great, the staff was very nice and the rooms are huge compared to other places in Seaside Heights. The rooms are also very clean. We will be back!

When we walked in to our "suite" there was a dirty couch, a "kitchen" our fridge was filthy & had HAIR on the shelf, also a half bottle of someone ELSES water! The bathroom has... More
