“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

My Husband and I have been to this property a few times but this was our first time since it has upgraded to a Days Inn. We were kind of skeptical at first, but to our surprise it was great! The staff was wonderful, hands down best I have seen in Seaside. The rooms were nice and clean, but my favorite renovated part of the property is the Lobby its Beautiful! We will definitely be back this Summer, already have out room booked!

My husband and I just came back from 2 nights here with our 1 year old son. We went for the St. Patty's Day parade so we wanted a room within walking distance. That ended up being one of the only good things about this place - it was only about 2 blocks away from the parade route, which was convenient with having a baby who needed a nap right when it was over! The only other good thing that I can say was that the staff member who checked us in on Friday night and out on Sunday morning was really nice and helpful. I'm sorry I didn't catch his name. The guy who was there on Saturday morning was great too. They are the reason I am giving a 3 out of 5 instead of 2. Anyway, on to the negatives. The king bed room we had was definitely one of the smallest I have ever stayed in. We barely had any room to fit our son's pack-n-play in the room without having to climb over the bed. Also, it was not exactly clean - which even though I wasn't expecting a 4 star hotel, I WAS expecting it to be clean. There was dirt and dust everywhere, the floor was filthy, there were stains all over the bedspread, pillows, chair & ottoman, and the heating/ac unit looked like it was filled with ashes inside. I cringed when my son stuck his baby bottle in one of the vents! Also, when we arrived the maid had left 2 bath towels and a basket on the bed - in the basket was a roll of toilet paper, and a few toiletries (lotion, shampoo, etc.) and an EMPTY wrapper that once contained a bar of soap! Good thing I brought my own! There were no was cloths or hand towels, just 2 bath towels. I'm pretty sure we had a partially updated room, since the flooring seemed new, as did some of the furniture and the bathroom sink. But some parts of the room seemed like they had not been updated. Oh and speaking of the bathroom sink, I have never seen anything designed this way! You couldn't fit your hands under the faucet to wash them! Why would anything be intentionally made this way?! I'm so sorry I forgot to take pictures to post here because I didn't want to forget anything. Also, the walls are so thin - we could hear our neighbor's conversations and then we hard them partying all night long, including screaming and slamming doors until 4am. Maybe this place will be better once they complete all the renovations which hopefully they are still doing. If you're literally just looking for a cheap place to sleep and you don't care about anything else, then I would recommend this motel... otherwise you might want to look elsewhere. Oh I almost forgot about parking. You are supposed to have a permit displayed in your car, since there are probably only enough spots to park one car per room, especially if they're totally booked which they were when we stayed. There were several cars without permits, but after informing the front desk guy of this on Saturday night, he didn't seem to care. So we had no where to park. He told me to park on the street since it's free, but I informed him it's not free overnight.

Dear Ms. KristenJovi,

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We appreciate you writing about your stay with us over the Holiday weekend.

We understand that there were some issues with your stay that prevented a fully enjoyable stay. We have spoken to our housekeeping supervisor about the room deficiencies as this is not a typical guest experience. In regards to the upgrades, we appreciate you enjoyed the upgrades so far and we will continue to improve our hotel every year.

We look forward to your future stay so we may provide a much better experience for you and your family!

That's not truly a knock as the place seems recently renovated. Trouble is not entirely. For instance the wood baseboard along the floors in the room were old and not to clean. The door to the bathroom was chipped. The dispenser for the toilet tissuee was rusted. There was no drain handle on the bathroom sink.Worse yet don't be fooled into thinking there's no hot water when you turn on the bathroom faucet. Turns out, hot and cold are reversed ! In general the room was clean with fresh paint , and lovely art work, along with a nice flat screen tv. So if you don;'t care about elegance and just need a bed for the nite at a good rate.... enjoy your stay.

We just spent a night here, on Valentine's week-end. It was the best price for the location, & we were well satisfied with it, for the night. The place has been recently up-graded. Very affordable, very friendly staff, & the room served our needs. Good breakfast, & really affordable.
This place used to be known as the Cranberry Inn - recently taken-over by Days Inn chain.

Seaside regulars, we came down to spend New Years Eve at Hemmingways. We read the reviews for this place on Kayak and were not sure what the expect. The gentlemen at the front desk were great, friendly, helpful, personable, the lobby even seemed nice. (Especially compared to the mechanics closet "lobbys" most seaside motels have) It was a little bit of a pain that the hotel is sectioned off and you can only get to your room one way, but that's neither here nor there.
We were totally impressed with the rooms, clean renovated and very warm, except the bathroom which was freezing for some reason, and the floor which was also really cold.
Everything was clean, the tv worked and it was one of the lowest priced rooms we've stayed in. It's a little far from everything but in the summer it won't be an issue to walk. We will definitely be returning.

I don't know what to say... The front office guy was great so thank you but the room was not good at all. A space heater to hear a freezing cold room. What was that about. Unacceptable period!! The office guy moved us to warmth but I froze for an hour. Then when we got to the second room the bed had springs could be felt in my back. I was too tierd to complain. The rooms were not clean. I was not happy at all but I must say the service was good... I plan to address this further up.. Days Inn near Jersey Shore.

i came down with friends & family. We went out for NY Eve, in Seaside, and stayed overnight @ Days In .I like the affordable rates and I think that the rooms are beautiful, for the price. The staff, from the time I booked the room, and all thru my stay, were extreme friendly and helpful. Location is great, as I, frequently, go down to Seaside Heights Boardwalk. Wally, Alex and your cleaning & maintenance staff were very nice and knowledgeable. Due to that...and the affordable rates and cleanliness...I will, definitely, stay at the Days Inn @ 201 Hiering Ave, Seaside Heights, NJ, again! If summer rates are reasonable...I will stay there, alot, this coming Summer (2014). I will fefinitely recommend you to my friends! If you are ever offering specials, please email me at kcotillo@optonline.net. Thank You. Karyn Cotillo
