“Heartbreak Motel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

What a horrible, depressing place. The owners, (especially Maggie), were extremely rude and demeaning, looking down their noses as if speaking to someone less than human. The furnishings were old and ugly, the carpet worn. The microwave didn't work, and the shower water (like the heat), would suddenly change from cold to scalding hot. One night Maggie knocked on the door after 11 pm to search the room, looking under the bed and asking if I had a skinny girl hidden there. Junkies seemed to love the place, though, like a guy in room 6 who seemed to have a regular business going all night. Avoid this rat-hole at all costs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The Barnegat hotel has a nice, old-fashioned charm too it. My girlfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights while visiting friends and going to a wedding over the weekend. The hotel's managers were extremely accomodating, friendly, and personable, and even upgraded our room for free 'just because". The room was clean, spacious, and charming with a slightly more romantic feel than most chain hotels. Don't believe they offer a continental breakfast or have a swimming pool, but if you're looking to stay somewhere that's well managed, neat, with a slight European architectural flare, then the Barnegat Hotel will meet all your needs and then some. Such a wonderful weekend there. Great people.

We regrettably stayed in this dump 2 nights; for the money spent you get nothing…not even a blow dryer!!!! Our AC had 2 speeds full blast and off, we froze our butts off! When I went outside in the morning my glasses fogged over!!! My 2 year old son flushed the toilet on me in the shower and burned my butt! The water pressure SUCKS! Our second night the “guest” below us had music blaring til 3 AM. I used my cell phone, since there is not a phone in the room to call the “front desk” only to leave a message. No one was around at check-out, so once again I called the front desk. I spoke to the women who checked us in. She said she checked for someone playing loud music and couldn’t hear anything. Then I see the “guest” from the room below us collecting the trash from around the grounds. Of course she didn’t hear her “employee of month” playing loud music all hours of the night!! If there is a next time we will spend the extra money to stay at the Holiday Inn and not have to drive to get coffee!!!!

Room Tip: Stay away from room 16!!!

First room I got was not serviced. Second room had no AC. It was a vaulted ceiling loft style room on 100 degree day. Third room, key didn't work. I settled withe second room not wanting to go to the trouble of another hotel... Then the owner walks into the room without knocking rudely asking for key to the other room.. I had already made 3 trips down to the "lobby", this place flea bag

I have stayed there a couple times before and have been very satisfied. We plan to stay again this June, 2011. We travel with 2 dogs and one cat and usually have an efficiency that serves us all well. We used to live in the area, so we know it well. Usually come in a car so we eat in or out. There is a restaraunt within walking distance, can't vouch for it because we never ate there. With a good walk, there is a Deli and Pizza place. For exercise, I walk to the light south of the Motel and through the community behind those establishments. We plan to visit NJ many more times and would gladly stay in the Barnegat Motel again. The proprietors are friendly and nice as well as the accomodations suiting us very well. Joyce Stengel, Cape Coral, Florida
