“great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Staff goes out of their way to please. I'm also part of the running club and have been coming
here for the past 5-6 years. This is not your super-lux place, but always clean and good value for the price. Particularly good bar and deck. Warning: don't speed getting here. The cops in Seaside Heights and Park just love giving tickets!

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are quieter

This is the fifth year my running club held its late spring weekend event at the Windjammer. We have over one hundred people from all parts of the US and Canada attending each year. For most of them this is their second or third visit and in some cases there are those who have attended all the weekends for the past five years. Our successful weekend events are due in no small to the role that the Windjammer plays.
The Windjammer, family owed and managed, is a classic New Jersey shore motel that offers quality facilities and service at an economic price. Joe the family manager for the motel, his wife and the rest of the family and staff are determined to ensure everyone has a good experience while visiting.
It is perfectly located one mile to the north of beautiful Island State Park and two miles south of the amusements and boardwalk of Seaside Heights the Windjammer is great for either families or groups like ours. In addition to the quality food service available at the Windjammer there are several sandwich shops and a liquor store within several steps of the motel. The very generous Happy Hour is a favorite of our group, as is the heated pool.
Our club is already planning next year’s event at the Windjammer.

Room Tip: Apartments are great for families includes kitchien, private bedroom and living room

We stay here with a 100-person group for a weekend every May the weekend before Memorial day. Great staff, great bar and good location walkable to the boardwalk. Beds are a bit soft. Loads of parking, nice, clean, large pool.

It's a classic Jersey Shore motel. The rooms are dated but clean enough. But you aren't coming to Seaside Park to stay in the freakin' Hilton--you want an old motel! The difference between the 'jammer and other motels is the management, who go out of their way to make sure your stay was enjoyable. They're good people.

The motel was easy to find, clean, friendly staff, and fabulous food. I would go back again without a second thought. We went with a group of people and the staff went the extra mile to make sure we were all had a wonderful time and all our needs were taken care of.

My famiy and I have spent a few wonderful weeks in Seaside, the Windjammer is a lock from the Ocean, you cannot eat the location. The family who owns it are very nice and willing to help you with whatever you need. Whle the Motel is old and the rooms are old, they are clean, which for me is most important.

This year we are just trying to get over Hurricane Sandy. I hope and pray, that the Windjammer is still there, as well as other businesses are in good shape.
