I found the place clean and close to the ocean which was nice. The staff was extremely helpful. Always ready to fix any little problem or to allow us to be a little silly. The pool was a very good temperature.

The room was very basic, like a 70s time warp. But it was clean. The hotel has that fusty smell - which is like a cross between a Spanish hotel and a Skegness holiday park. Staff were friendly, and the happy hour at the bar is well regarded. For me this was a bed for the night and it did... More

We stayed there in the Winter, as our regular hotel wasn't open, which surprised us as we thought they were opening. This hotel which we stayed in was obviously not geared for guest at this particular time of year, as the service was unprofessional if at all, and what was provided was done almost reluctantly. The room itself was mediocre... More

Great family owned place! They made me feel welcome right from the beginning. Rooms are clean and some might call them dated, I call them full of character! Good place to stay and catch some waves the next morning.

Stayed here one night in February. The price was right: $40.00. The room was very clean but dated. Cigarette burns in the carpet, old furniture, small bathroom, but a decent place to stay if sleeping is your main concern. Friendly staff. If you don't want to spend a fortune to visit the shore in the winter, this is a great... More

Just stayed for a week, had work in NJ. Clean room, great location and the staff and owners are Great People. I have been staying here for many years and it is always a pleasure. In the summer, this is the spot. Thanks

It is so refreshing to find a place like this that is still run by a real family and one that treats all of their guests as though they're a part of that family. The overall disposition is warm, welcoming and friendly. I'll expound on that in a moment, but first I'll review the facilites: The Windjammer Motor Inn has... More

My husband, nephew and I stayed here last weekend and absolutely fell in love with the place! I've been to several places in the area and nothing compares! Nice area, nice clean rooms, beautiful pool, bar/restaurant on premises, free private beach passes (which is a mere block away) and the best thing... the staff! What wonderful people! We're going to... More

This is a really friendly place just a VERY SHORT walk to the beach. The staff were great and really helpful. A real bargain considering the location, beach, restaurants and close to the bay and the pier. Nice pool area and good place to have a drink in the evening.
