“Exactly what we needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

For the price, we found that Biscayne Suites allowed us to go on a memorable family vacation. The location was ideal. We felt that the staff was more accommodating than rigid like most places. They gave us 4 beach passes when most gave 2 or none. You can't compare these beach hotels to a resort, but that should be expected. We had a blast which is the reason why you go on vacation in the first place. The location of the bathroom was less than ideal, but we made it work. We would definitely return!!

Room Tip: Some suites have 2 bathroom doors--one from the bedroom and one from the living room area. Some sui...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights. Good news is large room and 2 TV's. Bad news: parking is terrible. Spaces barely fit full size cars and spaces at premium. No lobby area just tiny check in space. Place is a bit worn and needs updating.

Room Tip: This is not a place for a long stay. At most 2/3 nights ok. People are nice but don't offset t...

I am always leary of motels as I am used to Marriotts, Hiltons, etc. My top priority is cleanliness and the Biscayne Suites met my expectations. The suites are spacious, bed is comfortable, however pull out couch was not. Hallways were quiet. Staff was friendly.would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for room facing ocean if you want to people watch. Ask for door to bedroom and kitchen if you wa...

We just came back from an awesome vacation in O.C.!! One reason our vacation was so great was because of Biscayne Suites! It is such a nice place for families! It's so much better having a suite instead of just a room! Our suite was quite nice. Our only real complaint would be the bathroom. Nothing major that we couldn't deal with. The pool was great! Up on the roof, not too small, plenty of chaise lounges, & lots of space on the patio area. The hotel is a short block & a half from the beach. Great location! We all loved it, & would definitely stay there again! Also, one big plus is how accommodating the staff is! The people at the front desk have no problem with anything! They take any stress away that you might have!

Our stay was pleasant and better than I had hoped for staying at a shore hotel. That being said, it is a shore hotel and quite old and outdated. However our room as well as common area and pool were spotlessly clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. If you are looking to be walking distance to everything, this will work for you.

I've gone to OCNJ every summer for my entire life. Sometimes I rent a house, sometimes a hotel room. This is my first visit to Biscayne Suites, and I'll be back. It's a decent hotel for what you get in OCNJ. Another reviewer compared it to a Manhatten hotel. You can't do that in OCNJ. Those proprieters are making their money in about 4 months of the year. Most OCNJ hotels have 1970-80s decor. They survive and do a decent job of maintaining their properties in this adorable beach community. This hotel is more than adquate. And I will be back for a future stay. Our room opened up into a living area with a comfortable pull-out couch. From that living area is access to the bathroom. Straight ahead of the entrance was a small kitchen with a tiny sink and a small frigde. But very adequate for a light breakfast and sandwiches for lunch. Wouldn't want to cook a meal in that kitchen. Next was a large bedroom with a king size bed, lots of drawer and closet space. From there was a nice, PRIVATE balcony. That balcony makes this room special. Many OCNJ hotel rooms don't have that, and it's a nice "extra" to be able to watch people, see the beach, and enjoy some quiet time. There is also a great roof-deck pool. Undercover parking is also a plus. Hotel is about 1 1/2 blocks from the boardwalk. An easy walk. When you come up at the boardwalk, you are right at the music pier, which is nice for beach-going, since a bathroom and water fountain are right there for your needs. Front desk is friendly and took care of all of our needs and concerns. Stay included free beach tags. Did have wifi too.

Room Tip: A higher up floor will let you see the ocean. We were on third floor and could see it. I'm gue...
