This was a great find! the PRO'S: :Clean rooms that did not smell of harsh chemicals or musty. The beach is only footsteps away. The restaurant has great food, a bit pricey but you should expect that when you are in a tourist location. CON'S the pillows are very flat, no stuffing in them and only 1 per person (so... More

This is a great find! Clean & well maintained. Awesome pool & private beach is just steps away. Restaurant was a winner too. Strictly no frills but beds were comfy & air conditioner worked great. Only wish there was wifi in the rooms. It is in the pool area & upper deck. We will b returning!

This is a nice hotel with clean, spacious efficiency apartments and overall a good value. It's footsteps away from the beach and a short walk to island beach state park (fishing, kayaking, biking, hiking) and a variety of restaurants and delis. It has a vintage feel, and partial upgrades, but is in need of a facelift. I'd love to see... More

I know with the shore, you pay for the location, and I wasn't expecting 5 stars. I booked a penthouse suite for a Sunday night. The pluses - closest entrance to Island Beach State Park in the area. Very quick response to my initial email, and very nice on the phone. And now the problems - it's an older motel.... More

I stayed here for the first time. The place is older but well maintained and very clean. Staff is very accommodating. Beautiful private beach and nice pool. Great time at the tiki bar, staff there was awesome and so was the entertainment Uke & Drum. The restaurant is a must, food is over the top and so is the view.... More

I have stayed at this motel 3 times now with my son, daughter and 2 grand daughters and definitely plan to go back. It is a no frills hotel but the rooms are clean, there is a steps-away private beach and everyone there is very friendly and helpful. We had a 2.5 room efficiency which was perfectly adequate for the... More

We stayed in the efficiency room which was as advertised. Queen size bed, tv, mini-fridge and bathroom. Great setup if you plan on spending most of your time on the beach which is exactly what we did. Friendly staff, close walking distance to the beach and plenty of restaurants made this an enjoyable visit.

Great location and nice beach! Staff was friendly and helpful. But, sofa bed the worst. All mattresses old. Hole punched bedroom door. Bathroom from 1960's. Needs major renovation! Want to come back and invite friends, but cannot sleep on those beds!
