Our family has stayed at the Luna Mar since I was a child. It is a great family place to stay. The owners and staff are very friendly go above & beyond to make your stay wonderful. We NEVER stay anywhere else!

We are here at the hotel right now, last minute stay on the shore for our wedding anniversary. Man at the desk was so accommodating..very quiet. Good for couples or families. Thankfully no party scene or teenagers...seems like they are strict about it which is why we stayed here.

We have been coming here for years and years, and would not even consider staying anywhere else. This is a clean, comfortable, convenient family place, right across from the beach! The heated pool is well-kept and a real plus ! The morning coffee and bagels and the weekly pizza party truly add to the warm and homey atmosphere here. Tom... More

We came back to Seaside Park for another Shore get away. We don't even look to stay anywhere else, why bother when you have the perfect location at The Luna Mar. Not only is it the perfect spot, but this place is so clean you can leave your Lysol & Clorox Wipes at home, there's no need for them here.... More

Nice stay in the heart of Seaside. Tom the manager is very helpful and goes out of his way to accommodate. The pool is refreshing after a stay at the beach all day. Free beach badges are a plus. They even have two bedroom units.

This little motel is a treasure to be found. It is located in quiet Seaside Park across the street from the beach, and just steps from the renowned Seaside Heights Boardwalk. It is run with the highest of standards (very clean, great staff, wireless internet, bagels and coffee); truly a fabulous family beach getaway. The owner, Tommy, couldn't be nicer... More

This is a very nice, modest little motel only FEET from the Seaside Park beach and boardwalk. We spent 2 nights with a group of longtime friends. Our efficiency was very spacious and quiet, which was great. Most importantly, the Luna-Mar is VERY clean, which is great. Tom and the other front-desk staff are very helpful and nice, too. Our...

Where to start? The owners are great. Make you feel right at home. Rooms are very CLEAN. They provide free bagels and coffee every morning, free beach passes, free pizza on Thursdays. It's a short walk to the boardwalk, perfect if you like it on the quieter side at night. Everyone was very friendly, an added plus when you are... More
