We booked for the week of the 4 th of July. The Paradise Oceanfront was exceptionally clean along with courteous room service and staff. They were visibly maintaining around pool and common areas. This is a great family resort as well as a couples getaway. Quiet , quaint and gorgeous view of the ocean. I just booked for Labor Day... More

Stayed August 2013 for 3 days. Location is beachfront, a good 40 minute walk (5 minute drive) to boardwalk. The place was kept clean and focused on a family atmosphere- quiet at night, pool clean, etc. The motel is old and the rooms (we were ground floor) are small, the 'double' beds are not full size but barely big enough...

It was very clean, spacious and the staff are all very friendly. The location is great. We ended up coming back down again 2 weeks later and again had... More

My family and I returned for the fourth year in a row to this hotel, which we loved when Hermes owned it. This year's trip, a late May to early June visit was HORRIBLE. We paid for the room at the end with the direct ocean view and private balcony, but were bait-switched to an interior semi-view, non-private room, even... More

Our goal is to be the friendliest. cleanest motel in the Crest. However stating... More

The staff was very nice and the property was adequate for one or two nights. If you are looking for Paradise, it's not here but for an average place to stay, it's not bad. The Bed was hard and the bathroom small but for one night it was manageable. Ice machine broken but they sold ice in bags and although... More
