My family and I stayed one night on August 24th, and as a veteran of the South Jersey hotel/motel scene I have to say I was impresseed. The staff was nice and accomodating. We arrived way early and the folks behind the desk gave us their blessing to park the car in their lot. Frequently we are told we need to park offsite until check in, so this was good news for us. The rooms were affordable, clean, very close to the beach, and very close to the attractions for the kids. I'm usually not a pool person, but the weather this weekend was cold and windy. Having that heated pool available saved the trip for us because it was too cold to go to the beach on that particular day. The room was small but clean, and there were areas out by the pool that could use a fresh coat of paint, but if youre looking for a little more bang for your buck, look no farther then the Ocean 7 motel.
