“A Little Scary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2010

It looks like they put some effort into keeping this place clean but it is clearly dilapidated and not worth the $84 we paid. The room was big, the bed was acceptable, and there was a small refrigerator, but the wireless Internet did not work in our room (too far from the router, we were told). Also, the towel rack fell right off the wall and my 2-year old daughter found a rodent trap behind a curtain. Fortunately, the latter event happened on the morning of our departure or else I don't think I would have been able to spend the night. I suggest paying the extra 20 bucks and staying at the Holiday Inn on Route 72.

We stayed at the Barnegat Motel for one night traveling through the state of Delaware. The price was the best for the area. The room was large but dated. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spotless but the hot water was not hot and the shower was cold in a very short period of time. I was pulling a car trailer and the parking lot was big enough to accommodate both truck and trailer.

Rude owners. No ice, no soda machine, no hairdryers, rooms are a little stinky. And, again, very rudy and unfriendly owners. And wireless does not work even though they say they have it.

My nephew and I were in the Little Egg Harbor area on business and it wasgetting very late on Saturday night. Could not find ANY motels near that town, stumbled into a new Holiday Inn and found their price too high, but their desk clerk knew of a more affordable alternative and even made the call for us. It is 4 miles north of the Route 72 and US-9 intersection, price for a Saturday night was $89 and included all taxes and fees.
We stayed in the second floor of the second building and found the queen size bed were very good -- much better than falling asleep while driving!

  • Liked — it was available
  • Disliked — distance to Little Egg Harbor where we had a business deal to complete.

This is a great motel! My whole family enjoyed staying at this execptional motel. It was much better than Seapine Inn where we stayed the day before we stumbled apon this great motel. It was better that it wasn't on the island because of all the traffic. Even though it isn't on the island its only a 10-15 minute drive. Everything was much cleaner then I expected, considering it was a motel. The service was excellent and it was very convienent that Sweet Jennys was only a 1.5 minute walk! All in All it was a great experience for my family. I highly recomend bring your family to this excellent motel.

The Barnegat Motel is a German style motel that has aged. The rooms are kept clean and there are plenty of different type. My wife, baby and I stayed on the second floor of the main building.

The room was very large and had a king bed. There was even a twin bed in the entry room. The 1.5 year old enjoyed the unique shape of the room. He was quite excited to stay there. While the age of the motel could show, the room was clean and in good repair. A perk of our room was central AC which meant no noisy fan keeping us up on a warm night.

The motel is located about 15 minutes from Long Beach Island. LBI is a great vacation spot. The Sweet Jenny mini golf and restaurant next store has a nice summer feel to it.

Overall, this is a good place to stay for a night. While the motel has aged, it is well kept and clean. LBI can be a tough place to stay and the Barnegat Motel will more than suffice if you find yourself in a bind. For those on a budget, your will get a good room and a great price.

We stumbled upon this motel after leaving New York heading towards Cape May. Our kids (3 and 8.5 months) decided it was time to stop, we punched in nearest hotel locations to our TomTom and this was the nearest.

Lucky for us they had one room left. The guy did not recommend the room for us as it was a smoking one but my husband checked it out and said it would do. It was well worn with some marks on the carpets, etc but was fairly clean and did not really smell of smoke too much especially after we had the windows open a while.

To be honest we were only there for around 12 hours but it was fine for a quick stop.
