My husband, my 14 year old son, and his 17 year old friend,and I recently visited the Jersey shore, for our very first time. We had heard mixed reviews of the area and knew not what to expect. We took a room at another motel for one night, figuring we'd check out the place and see what we thought.
To our surprise, the beach was lovely! The water was crystal clear, and the walk to the ocean was reasonable. As we walked along the boardwalk, we found The Sand and Surf Motel. It looked cleanest of them all. It was very well maintained. We went in and met Jeff who was friendly and accomodating. He showed us a room, and offered a very reasonable rate, discounted if we booked three nights, which was exactly what we needed!! We chose a second floor efficiency, for about $25.00 more than a standard room per night. We had 2 comfy, plush, full size beds, and ordered a cot as well. To us a bad mattress can ruin a trip, so we were very pleased with the beds! The room was newly renovated, clean cool and fresh smelling! No must mildew smell, like some have. It had a great view of the ocean, boardwalk and rides. It overlooked the dead end street so the kids could skate at night and I could sit upstairs and watch.
This is a family owned and operated motel. It is clean, it is a great location and it is reasonably priced. If you want a pool, they do not have one. If you have a problem parking across the street in their own secure lot, it's not for you. But we basically park the car and don't touch it again until we go home, so for us, it was fine! I would stay here again if I went back to Seaside. If you've never been there, this lodging will make the whole experience better. You can walk to the amusement park, waterslides, go carts, arcades, beach, restaurants, skyride and shops. It's a nice little getaway, especially with teens who like to stay up late and be entertained!!
