Was so surprised at how nice this stay turned out. We got an amazing deal, it has a pool, newly renovated room, incredible bed w/memory foam topper! Super clean & quiet. In the heart of downtown, within 1 block of the boardwalk, beach & aquarium. Will definitely be back. Loved it!

A cheap and cheerful motel. Older, Night chain was missing from the door. However, the bed was comfortable, the room clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. As we were there in the off season, the owner dropped his price $10 without our asking! They has an indoor pool which we did not use. All we wanted was... More

It's an old building with the expected issues, but . . . . The beds were very comfortable. The shower had good water pressure and plenty of hot water, and the towels were large and fluffy. Housekeeping did a fine job of keeping the room nicely made-up. Decide what you want to pay for ~ we want a clean, reasonable... More

City Center Motel is cheap for many reasons. The suite we stayed in needed a total renovation. There were ants in the kitchen. The place was not clean. One third of the carpet in one bedroom was wet. The bath tub faucet dropped constantly. When running the bath, rusty water came out of the tap. The staff did not offer... More

Why senselessly bust your wallet going to expensive hotels when you can go to this one for a fraction of the price. If you're on a budget or want a great deal then make a reservation here. The money you save here can be spent more on restaurants or stores. (It can get a little spendy). For $69 I reserved... More

If you don't mind your neighbor's open bathroom window across about a 3-foot walkway from your open window (no air conditioning at this motel) then I guess this is your kind of place. This place is a maze of narrow outdoor walkways to many rooms with ours also being next to the motel laundry where the commercial dryer ran until... More

The motel was easy to find on 1st Avenue one block back from the beach, opposite a huge and ugly car park. It reminded me of how motels were twenty years ago but with a 21st century price tag. But then Seaside reminded me of how resorts were back in the 80s. A little dowdy, a bit tacky, rather pointless... More

When we checked in we were told we had a queen bed. It was a double which we decided we could live with in this tiny room. Unfortunately we didn't check the condition of the mattress until we were going to bed. The mattress was HORRIBLE!! No matter how hard we tried we sank to the middle. The mattress in... More

We made late plans to go to Seaside and had few choices for a room. Most were the high end prices, but the City Center Motel had rooms for a great price. The motel is an old school road house type of place where the rooms are almost apartment's with all you need for a long stay. Oddly, the one... More

Love this place. We reserved the king plus 2 queens with a kitchenette and were very pleased. It was more like a little apartment than a motel. The king was in the main room and then there was two bedrooms with a queen in each. The kitchen has a full size fridge, sink and a stove. Not to mention dishes,... More
