It was last minute that me and my boyfriend decided to go to Seaside Heights. The hotel/motel selection was slim and a lot of them had bad reviews. We settled on Franklin Terrace since it was so close to the boardwalk (huge plus).
We arrived half an hour before check-in time (2pm) and it was no problem. I paid the rest of what was due and our total was $230 (tax included) for a one-night stay (Saturday to Sunday). We got to our room and we were pleasantly surprised because there was more included than we had known. There was a stove (a tad beat up), microwave, kitchen sink, and cabinets with dishes in them. Everything seemed pretty clean and newly painted (I'm assuming because of the hurricane). We checked around for bed bugs and everything looked good! There was a mismatched couch in the room with stains and marks on both sides of the cushion, but other than that, we were happy with it. Oh and they had pre-cooled the room to a chilly 60 degrees, which was nice. There's a small pool out back which could easily get congested with too many people, but luckily nobody was there when we went for a dip.
Checkout time was 10:00 am but we wanted to go out for breakfast so the owner let us keep our car there while we ate. It was only 10:30 am when we got back, but still, that was nice of him. We would return to this motel if we ever vacation in Seaside Heights again.
