First the positive of the hotel. We checked in on a Wednesday,and stayed till Sunday. July 23-28th 2014. Check in went very well,front desk people were friendly and courteous .

It has been over one year since my last visit to this motel, and I do emphasize "my last visit." After having frequented this establishment numerous times when our 20-something children were young, we decided to come back last summer partly in an effort to support New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. It turned out to be a... More

We're sorry things weren't exactly as you remembered, Mike. It's really disappointing to hear our service let you down when you were here last. Unfortunately, as the manager on duty told you, we can't provide the owner's phone number, which we're sure is frustrating. However, we understand loud and clear how upsetting your stay with us was, and we want... More

I had a one bedroom suite and the AC partially worked in only one room. the rest it was disgusting. The staff was very friendly and apologetic, however the manager BOB was rude... More

We're really sorry to read about your experience. When you go on vacation, you should be able to relax and enjoy your time off, and we're disappointed that we couldn't give you that. No one on our management team ever intends to treat guests rudely, so we're sorry you felt disrespected. We've been open for more than 50 years, and... More

We stood there 4th of July (2014) The Manager was totally irresponsible. Our room was without air conditioning for the entire four day weekend. The staff was very apologetic but the manager was not. It is most likely that he is working for a bonus at the end of the season. I truly feel bad for the owner of this... More

Worst trip ever...no A/C, no WiFi, stove didn't work, and no electrical outlets available....had to unplug refrigerator to plug in coffee maker or microwave. And no repairs to be made. They gave us another room which was just as bad.

The hotel is not what they advertise. Internet service, no good, Manager not like kids at premise. Rooms smelly, dirty. Old set up. I do not recommend to anyone to staid on this hotel. The only good thing is the view, that is all. Manager call police if you are not on your room by 11pm.

My wife and I stayed at the Oceanview Motel during a recent trip down the shore. If you're lucky enough to get an ocean-front room, the views are great. The motel is clean, the staff is friendly and the location is ideal. Lots of families makes for a pleasant atmosphere.
