When choosing this hotel, I read some mixed reviews but decided to stay here anyway. That was a mistake. The positive is that the hotel is right on the beach. The negatives, the room was very dark and outdated. The kitchen cabinets were peeling and our toaster almost caught on fire. The door did not close properly and the light... More

Older motel but we got a discounted rate and fit our budget. Nothing fancy in room. But hey most of the time should be outta the room anyway. Did have stove top full fridge and microwave. Flat panel tv and clean room. Few places to eat in the area and not far from boardwalk. Location location location.

We just left the Coliseum Ocean Resort and we had a great time! We stayed in one of their suites, and were surprised how spacious they were, kitchen and bathroom. Very clean accommodations and friendly staff. The oceanfront pool was amazing and we were right on the beach the whole time. We will be back next year for sure!

We have stayed at the Coliseum for 9 straight years and have always enjoyed our stay. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Wally makes you feel like you have been friends forever. The rooms are a little small but honestly, the view and beach location make up for it. This is a perfect place to bring kids, we have... More

We just got home from NJ and I must say we had a great time. The hotel staff members were polite and helpful. They kept a good eye on everything down to the car being parked correctly. Mostly children used the pool and it was kept very clean. Rooms are small but good for the price

This motel is right on the beach and has a heated pool. Its little kitchenette (with full-size refrigerator) is a boon to the budget traveler. it is a clean, basic place, but the staff were wonderful, in our experience. Produced coffee filters, then a can opener...and called us when my husband left his computer in a bureau drawer! Would be... More

We stayed at the Coliseum from May 31 - June 4, 2015 in an oceanfront efficiency. You can't beat the unobstructed view of the ocean! The room was clean and looked freshly painted. This is a no-frills "resort". The necessities were all included, mis-matched silverware, plates, coffee maker...furniture was old but functional. TV in the living/dining area has all of... More

First visit here. Not very impressed. Parking is very difficult. Very narrow spaces, can hardly open car doors. Staff tried to charge more at check-in, when I already paid in full online. BEWARE: there is a not on desk that states if "if you choose to dispute charges, there may be a ?% fee added to your bill." I put... More

Management is completely unhelpful. The plumbing clogged and apparently this is an on going issue with this place cause they have plungers on every floor outside so the guests can plunge the toilets !!! Management said it wasn't their problem. The guests are the ones who clog the toilets!! Seriously, your better off sleeping in your car.

I booked this hotel in April, and thought it looked real nice in the pictures. Totally NOT a true representation of this place. Someone has really done some creative photography. Our room was filthy, it was as small as a closet. The bathroom was rusty, and you could barely turn around without bumping into the toilet, it was soooooo small.... More
