“Definitely will return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

From the moment you walk in to the lobby of the Windjammer you are treated as if you knew these people forever. Margaret and Joe, the owners were very hospitable . They made my stay very comfortable! Joe and Leah, the bartenders, were very informative as to info on near by locations to visit and eat. For the people that posted negative feed back about the Windjammer, Get a life! Step outside your room and smell the ocean, swim in the heated pool, sit on the deck with a cocktail under the palm trees, have a delicious breakfast, or a great burger for lunch! Great value for the location! I will be bringing my husband to be, Jimmy back in September to enjoy another fabulous time!

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.
