My boyfriend and I were planning a weekend trip to the Jersey shore, and after viewing this motel's website and reviews on Travelocity, we decided to book two nights. From the photographs provided, the rooms seemed spare but clean. What an unpleasant surprise we had when we checked in!
When I say that this is the worst motel I've ever been in, I'm not exaggerating. Our room reeked of mildew, and the owner hadn't even bothered to turn on the AC wall unit before we arrived, so it was also stifling hot. The carpet was dirty and dingy, with dark stains all over it. The toilet barely flushed, and the shower wasn't more than a pipe in the wall, spraying out water. This shower was not a place you'd want to set foot in without sandals. Trash hadn't been taken out since the last customer. I can't even imagine what the sheets looked like under the vomit-colored bedspread: my boyfriend and I were too afraid to look. Overall, the place looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite a while.
We ultimately decided to cancel our reservation and moved next door to the Belmont Motel, which was somewhat better. The owner still charged us for one night's stay, which was over $100. We felt so disappointed and ripped off.
In conclusion: this place should be torn down, it's only use is for those working by the hour. Do not book a room here if you want to enjoy your stay at the Jersey shore.
