I arrived to a filthy room, the towels in the bathroom were damp and appeared used, there was a dead roach in the bathtub, and there was a plastic bowl in the refrigerator which was full of mold, I could not tell what kind of food was originally in the bowl, but it was completely molded and had obviously been...

First of all I took only 2 steps into the room before leaving. All of the bad reviews are curate. The after reading the good ones its is obvious they are fake reviews. The good reviews are clearly fakes which is now obvious watching hotel impossible.

Dark hairs on the sheets, and gross stuff in the toilet--astounding!! The people next door were really drunk and loud--kept throwing beer bottles over the balcony. Weird, mangy dog loping a long the corridor--... More

My two friends and I stayed in this motel for 5 nights. The staff was very welcoming and friendly and they did everything to make us feel relaxed. 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
