“Yuck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

I stayed here for prom weekend with my school and this place is disgusting. We were given a key to our room, after walking up a flight of cement stairs outside of the motel and we were on the second floor facing the boardwalk which had a decent view. Our room had two queen beds and a pull out couch. The bathroom door did not close unless it was kicked, the coat hanger fell because it was only being held up by one nail, and we brought our own blankets and pillows to sleep on after seeing previous reviews, (which was smart considering many people found bedbugs in their rooms). For a prom stay it was a good place because it was cheap and could accommodate a large group at once. It's a great location, close to steaks unlimited and the beach and boardwalk. If you were staying with family bring proper sanitizing items and your own sheets just to be safe. The outside appearance of the motel is almost horrifying...actually no it is horrifying. Overall, since it was prom weekend we had a fun time, but if you were actually going to stay here its a wreck. The only good thing I can say about this place is the location. If you do stay here plan on staying at a cheap motel with broken room objects and doors that don't shut, very thin walls, and no telephone in the room. There wasn't even a bible, so I couldn't pray that I didn't find bedbugs.

Room Tip: Floors facing the boardwalk have a decent view and are convenient to parking lot.

I lived here for 4 months now, two of which were in the summer..I love it here. Everyone is nice, caring, and fun to be around. For all the people who said stuff about the Toliet paper and towels, all you had to do was go to the office and you would of got all the Toliet paper, towels, blankets, pillows, and sheets that you wanted with no problem. Moody does what ever you ask as long as you ask with respect. And for the person who wanted to check out 3 hours early...you can't expect someone to be there 24/7 for the one person that checks out early. If someone was there a extra 8&1/2hours
(2am-10:30(<closing-check out)and there payed 15 a hour, that's another $127.50 the owner has to put out for one person..the person paying 175 for there entire stay lol. You can't have the best of both worlds, it's either a good price and a good stay or a high price and a bunch of worthless extras at another motel that's more..and Sam comes in a hour early(9:30) so he's there when people are ready to check out(10:

I just got home, do you know why? We made reservations to stay at Sky View Manor Motel. We made reservations on line during the week, rate $67.00. We figured "how bad could it be:. We planned on just staying one night. WELL: The place is DISGUSTING!! As we were approaching our room, I noticed holes in all of the Drapes, yes Drapes, in the rooms. I open the shaky door knob to room. First thing we noticed is odor of mold. Then cigarette burns on the furniture, holes punched in the walls. Microwave all dented. Heres the kicker, The box spring on one of the double bed's was actually broken. Again we figured we were just gonna crash, so we'll use other bed. A guy named Moody let us check in early, which was nice. We put our bag's in the room and went to the beach. Moody asked us if everything was alright, we just mumbled. We should have just left. The more we thought about it while on beach, we decided we just couldn't stay there. I went to clerk to explain. He refused to give us our money back. While discussing this Moody comes out of back room and get's involved. Now not so nice. You can all figure out how that went. I've seen a guy named Sam answer reviews on this site. I asked for him OF COURSE he was OFF today. But I can call him tomorrow. Listen if that's the way you do business, Keep the &67.00. I've been in cleaner crack house's (as a result of employment). Stay far away..

The appartment that we stayed at was great! There were only two of us staying in the entire unit so we had lots of room. Having a kitchen was great as we were able
To prepare all of our meals. The beds were comfortable and the small sitting room provided a space to socialize with guests. The location to the boardwalk was fantastic...literally a one minute walk. The hotel staff were friendly and on the ball, what minimal issues we had were resolved within minutes. The security provided by the Skyview Manor was phenomamal my girlfriend and I felt safe and secure for our entire vacation!

DO NOT STAY AT THIS MOTEL. If I could give zero stars I would. Motel has not been updated or cleaned in what looks like 10+ years. The rooms are filled with broken and dilapidated furniture; the bed sloped down on one side, panels of the dresser were completely off, carpet had stains from who knows what, ripped, hole-filled drapery, black mold and mildew on every surface of the bathroom. Pool was in decent condition and staff were helpful when addressed, but it clear that the management takes no pride whatsoever in the motel's appearance or cleanliness. Although it may be a bargain financially, the price is not worth the horrible stay we experienced.

This Motel, has the best location and the best pool...that's it !! OMG< OMG, It truly is a Dump !, the rooms have no phone, the carpet...you don't want to touch them with your bare feet.. the cable connection had the TV fuzzy on all channels, and those damn Drapes in the windows, Horrible. .It still looks the same before Sandy, but worst, they did Nothing to improve this motel at all. It has to be the worst looking motel on the beach, and smelliest ! Its sad, because it could be one of the best, but I guess they don't care how it looks. The staff is very nice though.
