“Pleasantly suprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Stayed here from 7/29/12 to 7/29/12 for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. I have been coming to the shore for about 15 years now at least once a summer and have stayed in different locations. Although many years back I experience some pleasant stays at The Belmont or The Coral Sands my more recent experiences have been awful. Both those Hotels have been sold to new owners it seems and have taken a huge decline. I was hesitant this year about where to stay. Not only is it hard to find a decent place but everyone has raised their prices significantly over the years (I think it’s due to Seaside’s new found fame with “The Jersey Shore” show). I decided on The Bay Breeze because the gentleman who I originally spoke with (who I later found out was the owner Mike) was very courteous and accommodating (which believe it or not I did not experience with my other inquiry phone calls), also the price was right. The location was great for us being that we were coming by bus from New York. They are located less than 2 blocks away. They are also close to the beach, boardwalk, the water park and the amusement park. The hotel itself was cute and clean (there are no 5 star motels/hotels at the shore). Complimentary breakfast was a plus. Nothing extensive but it was convenient to just stroll downstairs and grab breakfast whether you are heading out or still preparing for the day. Mike and his family were terrific! Everyone was friendly and pleasant. Mike always made sure our stay was going smoothly. I was able to get a late check out for a small fee, which was great! We were able to enjoy another few hours in the sun before leaving. The pool and the pool area were kept very clean. The only negative is that the pool is quite small and if I remember correctly only went up to 5ft. Fine for me but my teen daughters would have preferred a bigger, deeper pool. We will definitely be back here for future visits. Thank you Mike and your lovely daughter for making our weekend stay a positive one!

Mike & staff were awesome! The motel was nice and had everything we needed. Loved the complimentary breakfast in the morning. Walking distance to the boardwalk! Definitely staying there again next year!

Once again,Mike the manager made us feel like family! He had our favorite room at the ready and
greeted us immediately upon arrival! We had our customary "Morning Coffee" out front,and
discussed the days plans.We will miss that as the year wears on.When we left,Mike held up
his plans until he said goodbye to us.Then when we arrived home,Mike called to make sure we
got home safe.--"Mike-thanks again for a wonderful stay! We will be back next year!!!!!

We just returned from our 3rd year at the Bay Breeze. Mike and staff cannot be nicer or do any more for you. Anyone wanting a five star hotel will not find it at the shore. The Bay Breeze is nicely decorated, the rooms and bathrooms are clean pool is small but there are never too many people in the pool so it is good. Should you have a problem it is taken care of immediately and Mike is always checking to make sure everything is ok. I can't wait to go back next summer.

Not a bad place. Beachy, outdated and close to the boardwalk. The main improvements I would like to see would include nicer bedding, brighter lighting (more lamps), and nicer towels. He also would not provide us with extra towels which was frustrating because we were such a big group. In order to get a new towel we had to bring a used one down to him! He also was a little too dramatic on the check in process...photocopying every guests license before they entered a room, requiring a written statement, large deposit and license pictures via email when booking the trip, and not even letting one of the girls use a bathroom in the office until the check-in process was complete!! It was pretty nuts. Lastly, the complimentary breakfast is a cute attempt, but I didn't dare try anything on the outdoor tiki cart. Overall, for a big group it is cheap and in a good location.

Overall was a good hotel for Seaside. After our last debacle I paid great attention to others comments. Small free breakfast of cereal, bagels, coffee etc each morning was nice. The room was clean. Owner was very nice. Pool kinda small but stay was pleasant enough. One thing that was a little offputting was if you wanted a late check out it cost $50.00 They want you out by 10am.

The motel is very basic with no phone, no hair dryer and a bit old. Also, the bed is not that comfortable. If you stay on the lower floor get ready for noises from above you. I also think it is a bit overpriced...! I suppose that's the price for seasonal dependent accommodation. Other than that, the owner is very accommodating.
