4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Very clean and well kept motel. Nothing negative to say about the efforts to keep this place nice BUT the breakfast area is a two person sized corner of the reception area. And, if get there late in the evening there will be nowhere to park. Pros: Nice big balcony upstairs overlooking the pool with tables and chairs. Very helpful, friendly staff and most importantly, although showing signs of wear its all kept very clean.

This motel is only 3 blocks from the Boardwalk. A good price for being so close. Clean with comfortable bedding and extra parking in back. The management is friendly and very helpful. we arrived early, about 3 hours before check in and they allowed us to park there so that we could go and enjoy the boardwalk with out having to pay extra parking fees. The kids loved making their own waffles in the morning. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I'm a surprised as anyone that I would be writing a 5 star review for a Super 8 Motel (hadn't been in one since college 30 years ago). It's two blocks from the entrance of the Boardwalk, was very quite (and we had a room facing the street) the staff (Ernest) was so gracious and helpful, they had a flatscreen TV with many channel choices (even CSN to watch the Giants) and the beds, OH THE BEDS, were so comfortable. My husband woke up and said "we've got to find our what of mattress this is." We slept well- even with my two teenagers in the adjoining room (that tells you how thick the walls must be). I'm surprised to see the other reviews had an issue with the noise. This is the place you want. Make sure you book Super 8 EAST (the yellow one not the blue one across the street) when you book. We will be back often :)

Room Tip: The corner rooms 201 and 202 are adjoined and overlook the pool

A good motel with clean rooms, nice facilities, decent breakfast and very nice manager. The pricing is excellent, but it might be more expensive during high season. Overall a very good choice if you just want to sleep somewhere. And oh yea they have a pool as well!

There's not much to say aout this motel really. The parking is very tight. The walls are very thin so you're out of luck with noisy neighbours. It's next to a busy/noisy road. The toilet cistern fills up noisily 24/7. I'd not stay here again.
