“The Perfect Place to stay on Long Beach Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

The Coral Seas Motel is a great place to stay on LBi. I have been bringing my family here for years. Quiet and relaxing. Just the way I like it. The perfect escape from the noisy city. Great for families and couples. Fall asleep listening to the ocean. Clean rooms and very nice people. I am looking forward to my 2011 summer vaca at the Coral Seas Oceanfront Motel.

This was our first stay at the “Coral Seas” and decided to try it out for a 5 day vacation in Beach Haven based on the overwhelming positive views we read on trip advisor. This motel is exactly what it is supposed to be, a very friendly and family oriented place to relax and swim, which is what its wonderful owners, “Joy and Pat” intended it to be. The rooms are standard rooms with a television and small refrigerator, private bathroom and a small table and chair and a desk. The rooms are very well kept and clean, and housekeeping did a wonderful job cleaning our room while we were out. They also provide free Wi-Fi for guests and provide an ice machine downstairs along with a microwave to heat some late night snacks. The pool is spotless and the pool area of lounge chairs and picnic tables are also well kept. The motel is in a central location being right on the beach and located within walking distance to the center of most things going on in town.
As I mentioned, this is a “family oriented” motel as most of the guests have very young children or are families who have been going there for years looking to relax. This is not a place to go if you are looking to party and get intoxicated and go swimming at 11 P.M., so if that is what you are looking for, this is not the place for you. In regards to some late night “noise and music” from the nearby properties, all I can say is we did not hear any music from our balcony or while we were in the room. Now I don’t ever go out of my way to criticize other reviewers, but I do not understand how another reviewer who was so upset at this motel and management from a January 2010 stay would wait 6 MONTHS until the last day of June 2010 to write a harsh review about this property and their wonderful staff. If you are looking for a clean, family oriented motel in Beach Haven, this is the place, just find out for yourself as our family will be making vacation plans for next summer at the “Coral Seas Motel”.

Our family has vacationed in Long Beach Island and stayed at the Coral Seas Motel for the last seventeen summers, and we hope it will be a family tradition for many years to come. Its location -- adjacent to the beach and within walking distance of just about any place you would want to dine or visit -- could not be better. It is spotlessly clean, well-run, and family-friendly. We hate to leave it and look forward all year to our return visit.

The Coral Seas Motel is the best place to stay on LBI. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and have all the creature comforts of home. The location can't be beat. The staff take great care of their guests and go above and beyond the call of duty. We come to the Coral Seas year after year and have never been disapointed. Besides, it's quiet and the only thing you hear is the sound of the Ocean crashing against the shore. You can't beat that for anything. I recommend staying there. You'll love it.

My family has been going to the Coral Seas for over 25 years. I grew up spending my summer vacations on the Jersey shore and we stayed here every year. The family who owns the Coral Seas is so nice and they really take pride in their work. Rooms are cleaned daily by very friendly and accomodating maids, who have always been more than willing to work around my habit of coming back to the room and eating lunch or napping. Yes, the rooms are a little tight, but it's a motel ... and really, it's all about the location, and it doesn't get better than this one.

Just what we needed, we stayed in a suite, perfect for a family. Friendly service, rooms were very clean. Beautiful pool. Our room was not oceanfront but we could still see the ocean out every window . Ocean was literally steps away. We plan to go back again for a week end in September!

This place is for couples over 50 years old who don't want to party. They are militant about any sort of socializing on the premises and are hard on kids. They walked right into our rooms. Once to issue demands and at least one other time to check around when the renter was absent. The rooms are very average but the location is good. "One and done" for us!
