I was a little skeptical when I came across this hotel and read reviews. I chose not to listen to the reviews and I am glad I did. When my friend and I arrived we immediately noticed the amazing location of the hotel. It is placed right in between Boulevard and Ocean Terrace. Bamboo Bar was a 5 second walk as well as KARMA which would be great for the weekend!!We were able to walk to everything which was great! Took less than 10 minutes(with stopping at a boardwalk store) to get as far as Aztec and the Jersey Shore house.

The management was very pleasant upon arrival and throughout our stay. They have free beach passes which was excellent as well. I was able to park in the lot, which had limited spaces but there was always a few open.

The room was small. We searched the bed for bed bugs and felt confident there were none, I always search the hotels I stay in. The a\c wasn't the best because it didn't cool the room like It should but it wasn't too hot out anyways so it was okay. There was no alarm clock or telephone in the room, which I thought was odd. We didn't utilize the pool, but I did notice it being tend too and it looked like a nice area to relax. The hotel was fairly quiet, way quieter than the Glenmont across the street. We did have some younger neighbors that were a little loud but nothing crazy.

Overall it was a good trip and for the price it was a good hotel with great service and an unbeatable location. I would definitely go back!

My husband and I stayed here for one night in mid July. We were pleasantly greeted at check in. The motel is small but only a block from the beach and boardwalk. Our room had 2 queen beds that appeared newer. The bedding was crisp white sheets and the bed was pretty comfortable. The bath was good size and very clean. The whole room was very clean! The kitchenette was outdated and the stove has definitely seen better days! We did not use any of the appliances. The pool is extremely small and only waist deep on the average adult.

All in all it is your typical beach motel but extra clean with very friendly management!

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.

It was the second time we stayed here. The location is great, half a block from the boardwalk. The room is clean. The beds are comfortable and clean. The owners are always on sight and very friendly. For the price you can't go wrong, you even get free beach passes. Will definitely stay there next time.

I was hesitant to book this motel because of reviews but I am extremely happy I didn't listen to them! We booked the room originally for 2 people but ended up having another couple come with us & they only charged an extra $15/person a day. The rooms are very clean. The only complaint is that the bathrooms are rather small but they're manageable. There are a couple rooms with full shower/tub combos but unfortunately we weren't able to get one. The entire property was clean and the pool area was nice. The staff was very nice and even let us check out late. Don't lose your beach pass or you'll be charged $50 to replace it. (I learned the hard way) Overall a great place to stay and we've already booked with them for Labor Day weekend! (They give discounts to repeat customers) Located right in the middle of the boardwalk only a block back. Room service came every morning and offered to clean our rooms and make the beds.

This motel was clean and freshly painted and the beds were comfortable.. Close to the boardwalk, shopping, the beach and restaurants.. It was quiet and we had a restful nights sleep. We had so much fun, We will be staying here next time we come to the shore!!!

Room Tip: Seemed like any of the rooms would have been nice. We were on the top floor.
