Acceptably low price for the off-season. Heat works just fine. TV has a long list of channels. Pleasant, professional front desk. But, the rooms are dated, with the original furnishings..and they show it. Check the bed first...the one I had really, really needed a new mattress. Free parking. Short walk to the Seaside Park boardwalk. Nice happy hour (4) on... More

The weather is great, the ocean is worm, the place is on the beach block. Great rates in the off -season. There is a large, heated pool in the courtyard. The Bar has Happy Hour from 3-8 every Friday and Monday. Great drink prices and free food! A great deal! All the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The bar... More

My group has an annual event at the Jersey Shore. Joey and his family always do a great job of accommodating us. The 'Jammer is a few hundred yards from the beach or Barneget Bay. The rooms are tidy but not elaborate. I recommend an off-season visit to Seaside and this Motor Inn.

My husband and I just came home from staying at the Windjammer for 5 nights. The overall stay was great for the money we paid. I would recommend this hotel to a family in a minute. My only grip was there was no tissues, no Hairdryer (already in the room), the towels are too tiny especially the bath towels. My... More

It's has been said numerous times on Trip Advisor that the Windjammer is outdated in decor, this is true. Also it has been said numerous times that the staff is so nice and accommodating (it is famly run), this is also true and much more important to me than updated furnishings. Just returned from a 4 night stay with my... More

We stayed at the Windjammer for an overnight on a two day trip to the beach recently. I was personally curious as to how the place would be as I remember when it was built back in the early 70s when I was spending the summer at Seaside Park as a college student. We were greeted by a friendly staff... More

I've been going here for the past 15 years. We go 3-4 times a summer. It is very kid and family friendly. The pool is the best in seaside. Happy hour is a bonus. The breakfast in the restaurant is always delicious. Rooms are ok and most need updating but it's down the shore so what can you expect. Always... More

Wonderful location -- one block from an incredible beach, nice staff, great pool, but rooms are dated. Efficiency had RV kitchen from the 1960s. Electric burners and stove but no microwave or coffeemaker. Rusty A/C but worked great. All in all, we had a great week there.

Decided to stay here based on Trip Advisor reviews. The positives: great location, close to beach, happy hour, pool area. Unfortunately, the negatives: no plastic covering on mattress(one review stated there was), musty, burn holes in carpet, dingy, shabby room, sporadic WiFi service, outweighed the positives. Sorely in need of upgrades! Will not return!

Expect fresh sheets & a clean sink. The grounds are sweet, the rooms are spotless and the pool is sparkling. Sit by the pool or sip salty margaritas or foamy beers at happy hour. Wake to a filling breakfast, sample butler served hor-dourves, or a tasty lunch. A block to the ocean, a block to the bay, and a short... More
