Look, this is a boardwalk beach town. If your looking for a Ritz Carlton, you are in the wrong area period. Sea Palace is a typical type of motel for a beach town. The floors aren't carpeted, people come in with sand all over their feet so that doesn't make sense. There isn't a phone in the room, amenities are... More

When i called th motel they indicated this price was for a 2 night stay only despite the fact that this was what was quoted on line. When I called this motel, the... More

This is your average Seaside Heights Motel. Not the best and not the worst that I have stayed in on the island. The shower needs remodeling and cleaning and the sheets could use a good deep wash but nothing that was horrendously terrible. Friends that were staying at the hotel as well had an issue when they arrived with their... More

The room was very spacious and clean 3 comfortable queen size beds. The blower you need to request from the office along with extra towels.... More

Due to visiting after a recent storm, there were no hotels in the area without flood damage. The staff was more than accommodating, providing air fresheners and upgraded rooms without upgrade fees to compensate for the minor damages. Even the first room we were assigned to only of a mild musky smell, however we were still upgraded to an immaculate... More

Me and my friend were going to seaside for the weekend, and we wanted an afforable but clean motel to go to. After having a brutal experience with the Knights Inn, we call the sea palace and the staff was SO friendly, gave us a deal on the room, and gave us a GREAT room. This is only a block... More

From the looks of this place it appeared to be clean. So we booked it. I can't say it was a total mistake, but we will not ever stay here again. They don't have an ice machine. What hotel/motel does not even have an ice machine? Our room only had one mirror and that was in the bathroom. The room... More

Went for the weekend with my girlfriend and will never go back. When you first pull up you see a decent looking building and think "this isnt too bad". Well once we checked in we were taken to the motel area that seemed like not a single penny was put into the place since it opened 100 years ago. The... More
