“looking for new rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2005

I just stayed at the surfside Motel and all the rooms have been done
for the 2005 season . The rooms have been all freshly painted with new fixtures and equipment I suggest you do not wait to make your reservation
for this spring and summer . The free breakfast was great at their Oceanview restaurant

The problem with the Jersey Shore is that almost all of the hotels on the beach are "Mom and Pop" operations. This place is no exception. My wife and I stayed overnight here on a whim when we went to Seaside Heights for a weekend with no reservations. Our room needed a lot of work and it was no where near worth the money they charged. The bed was uncomfortable and I have seen dorimitory rooms that were nicer. The pool area was crowded and loud even late into the night. The only good thing was the location on the boardwalk. Save your money!

I payed the hotel to stay for four nights, five days. We had a party and got kicked out the second night. We didn't get our money back which really sucked. Overall it is a great party Hotel but it has its limits so go to another Motel.

I had the unfortunate occasion to stay at the Surfside a few years ago.
It was absolutely the most disgusting place I have ever seen. The air conditioning didn't work and had many slats missing from the front of it. The door did not lock properly so anyone could push their way into the room. The knob was missing on the tv so the station could not be changed. A single light bulb hung in the room as a source of light. The sink was backed up with black scummy water. Inside the drawers in the desk it appeared that someone had vomitted and it had never been cleaned. The room was dirty and scummy. I would never stay there again!!!!

You could not find a more disgusting hotel if you searched for the rest of your life. If you can get past the disgusting smell, and actually set foot in the room you would find most of the rooms contents to be broken, filthly and moldy. My recommendation , find a different motel.
