“Family tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming here for 40 years. Can't beat the location right on boardwalk. Clean. Maid service is superb. Pool is heated. Basic motel lodging at a good value for the shore. We won't go anywhere else.

Clean, maid staff was great, very nice place!! We were (as other reviewers said) 1/2 block from the beach it was a little loud at times, but it quieted down in time for bed. Our kids had great fun in the pools, especially useful was the heated pool over the weekend (it rained and was cooler). We really enjoyed our stay and will be back!!

Just booked impala again for my family. The person who booked my reservation was very helpful and reminded me of a review I wrote a while ago. The review was a little harsh. She also reminded made me think how many great times me and my family have had at the impala. Looking back it was probably two people having a bad day. The impala has been good to me. I never stay anywhere else. So it must be good.

I have been staying at this hotel for 15+ years. Never disappointed! Only 1 block from the beach and the amusement park is right out back. Once in your room you cannot hear the rides at night, so don't let that scare you away. Two pools to choose from when you are done at the beach. Private outdoor showers to wash off before you go to your room. Book your rooms early because they tend to go fast. They also have 3 other properties to choose from.

Recent stay at the Impala with my wife was less than I expected for the money spent, off season. We stayed 3 nights Wed and checked out Saturday. No specials were offered. Room was clean and maintained, but NO MICROWAVE or Coffeemaker in the room. This is crazy, a hotel at the shore resort without a Microwave???? I stayed at a much less expensive place with a frig, microwave and coffee maker in the room. The location is good but so are many other hotels in the area that offer much more. Next time I guess I must call and ask, yes.

Room Tip: Ask questions before you book. The people on the phone are not always the friendly.

Reminds you of days gone by. A beach "motel". Clean, great location, and the "Jersey Shore experience" when you stay there. This was our third stay over the past three years, and will book again for next year. Once you park your car, no need to use it again until you get ready to leave.

Room Tip: No preference. Have stayed in three different rooms over the past three years.
