“Clean and friendly ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

First off check the dates of all the bad reviews. There NOT recent.

I come to seaside every year for the past 4 years for hemingways halloween party. This is my first time staying at the sunset motel

I called close to 11 pm to book there suite. A very friendly lady picked up she took all my info and let me pay for the room over the phone.

I arrived almost 2 hrs later then my scheduled time. A friendly man in the office was there to give me my key.

Checked out the room it was clean and neat just like the pictures. No bugs or bad smells. Didn't find any stains on the bedding or towels.

Turned the heat on it was quiet and worked well ( not the case at sea palace last year )

Room had nice accommodations with plenty of pillows and towels.

as long as management and the upkeep of this place stays the same I think most people will find value in this motel.

I WILL BE STAYING HERE AGAIN!

Only down side is Parking is a bit limited. But it was the off season and plenty of parking was available

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Clean and well ran.. Short walk to beach. The Shore needs more owners and operators like this... Super nice Staff. This is the only place that we will stay at The Jersey Shore. Looking forward to our next visit.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here the week of August 25, 2013. The stay was just amazing!!! Where to even begin. Annie and John, the managers of the property upgraded us to the Jacuzzi Suite as a surprise for us. They were very helpful with any and all questions we asked of them. They are 2 of the nicest people we have ever met. There is another gentleman who helps out there and i did not get his name. Whenever he saw us out and about on the property, he always stopped to say hello. The room was absolutely wonderful. Big king size bed, small fridge, microwave, table chairs, big flat screen TV, beautiful bathroom room with shower, and of course, the Jacuzzi. The room was spotless, had plenty of towels and bubbles for the Jacuzzi and everything worked just great. I wanted to take the shower and the Jacuzzi home with us. This motel is just steps from the boardwalk, beach and all surroundings of seaside heights. This is a non-smoking motel, however, they do put cigarette recepticles outside each room so patrons can smoke outside and not litter the property with butts....fantastic idea. We found it to be super quiet from outside noises and very roomy. We had an awesome time here. If we do not go to Ireland next summer for vacation, we will definitely be back to the Sunset Motel. I highly recommend this motel for your stay. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Annie and John for your hospitality. Hope to see you next summer.

Room Tip: any room is good.

Me and my husband stayed in the Jacuzzi suite for our anniversary for 2 nights. The staff was incredibly helpful. We asked for suggestions for food ect. and they were always very willing to help. We got two beach passes with our room. The room was completely renovated the Jacuzzi was a great size, the bathroom was beautiful, and the room was overall incredibly modern and clean. Its very close to the boardwalk which is a big draw. It was also affordable for a suite. This suite is not like the ones you'll see in the motels on seaside this was much more extravagant. I highly recommend this Motel for the staff, location, and room. Plus they have coffee in the morning and i think there might have been muffins or bagels or something of the sort, plus there is a pool in case your not feeling the beach for the day.

Room Tip: Jacuzzi Suite is definitely the way to go for a couple!

Let me start off by saying Thank you to the wonderful staff that accommodated my disabled husband,myself and my son with no problem whatsoever. I was reluctant about planning a trip due to my husband disability but when I called the Sunset Motel to inquire the woman I spoke with was so pleasant and helpful I felt comfortable doing so. This hotel is right down the street from the beach which was great. It was also safe and quiet. The room was nice and clean. And most and important we felt at home we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was awesome and I'm looking foward to our stay next summer. Thanks again Sunset Motel staff for your awesome guest service. See you soon!

Rooms were filthy, old vomit in bathroom, stains on carpets and beds, odor was almost unbearable. We had six people, only two towels, two pillows, no sheets on third bed, we were told they only provided what we had. People were very rude and disgusting, asking us to leave a tip for the maid (what a joke). We stayed one night (our 1st mistake), we left the next day were told we would get refunded for one night, that never happened and out credit card company (Bank of America) sided with the Sunset Motel. Needless to say we are no longer doing business with Bank of America. My daughter was six months pregnent and this place was a health hazard to say the least. The business card says clean and comfortable, again what a joke. This place puts a bad name on the Jersey Shore, and I would never stay in Seaside Heights again. I would visit the shore again, but stay somewhere else, like Tom's River, NJ. It was very nice at the Quality Inn.

Room Tip: Don't book any room here.

Arpan P, Owner at Sunset Motel, responded to this review, January 26, 2012
We have taken all complaints into account over the course of the years and have finally decided to do a complete renovation of the property internally and externally. The interior renovations are now completed and ready for renting. Exterior renovations have begun and will carry through spring of 2012. NEW management has been put in place as well. We apologize to all previous guests for the disappointing services, amenities, and especially the management and attitude. We as owners understand that our level of standards and the hospitality that was received was everything short of what our guest deserved. We are striving to change these negative views of our property. Please come visit us again or for the first time, while keeping in mind that our property is completely renovated from top to bottom inside and out with most importantly new, friendly, and respectable management. We encourage everyone to continue to check our website to keep in touch with our new photos and progress of the renovation efforts to better suit our guest. Our ultimate goal is to provide a new and improved guest experience that is nothing short of astonishing, relaxing, enjoyable, and hassle free.

Thank You,
Sunset Motel
