Service is friendly. It's 28° outside and neither of our rooms have heat. Candy clearly stuck to the carpet, frozen urine spots on toilet, washcloths and towels with hairs entangled. $50 for the night..surprising, should be hourly. I would have left after 20 minutes. Must've had financial support after Irene and/or Sandy..not sure where that aid was allocated..certainly no where... More

We booked this place after fleeing from the Travel Lodge (which was downright foul). They took us right in, and even gave us an efficiency short notice on Labor Day weekend. The staff was very nice. They have a bar that over looks the pool, which is in the center of the hotel. So when you leave your room, it... More

We've been going there for 10 years and it just keeps getting better. There is a bakery on the main street. There is also... More

The motel is clean, comfortable, and functional. Joe and Frankie accommodate your vacation needs. They give you badges for a beach that is a short block away. The heated pool with a southern exposure provides a respite from the sand and fills a gap on cool cloudy days. A liquor store, ice cream store, deli, sub shop, department store, and... More

Nice place to stay for the price. Very nice staff, especially Frankie and Vic! They were very friendly and very helpful. It is a block from the beach and close to the boardwalk. I would defiantly go back. WI loves the Jersey Shore!!

The rooms were typical shore. Old furniture, dressers, couch. The mattress on the bed seemed new. Very dated appliances, but who wants to cook. Clean. Had to ask for more towels, which were given promptly with a friendly attitude. Pool was very nice. Warm. Only complaint was too many people smoking. Joe at the front desk was helpful in recommending... More
