We needed to be near Ocean City for a wedding the last weekend in September and originally booked the Econo-Lodge in Marmora because of price but were concerned with the reviews. We wanted clean and quiet. Then – using Trip Advisor – we hound this family run hotel. It is run by a man and his mother and should suit many folks. It wasn’t elegant but it was clean. It’s a 35+year old single-level strip hotel, literally off the exit of the Garden State Parkway where you take Roosevelt Blvd 2 miles to the beach in Ocean City. So it’s VERY convenient – though you can’t walk to the beach. The rooms are plain with comfortable Queen Bed and refrigerator and a 30 in flat screen TV in the room. The reading light is only on the right side of the bed (as you are laying on it). There was soap, but no shampoo, in the bathroom.
The hotel is a few blocks drive to a large Wawa Convenience store and a HUGE (I mean huge!) new Shop Rite supermarket.
In the morning we were presently surprised to see a Keurig coffee maker set up next to the parking lot with K-cup coffee, sweetener and half and half. (It was not mid summer but still about 70 degrees so we were able to use the milk before it spoiled.)
The rates are way better than anything in the area and the air conditioner in the room worked well, though it does blow on the bed. A nice ;plus is that the front windows open to let in fresh air.
The motel is only open from Memorial Day until end of September. We checked out Sunday 9/25 and were the last guests for the season.
We don’t go to the Jersey shore a lot so not sure we’ll be back but at about $80./night on a Sept weekend, this was $10. less than the Econolodge and probably $25 - $30 less than any place in Ocean City.
