“A quiet gem near the heart of the action!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

This little motel is a treasure to be found. It is located in quiet Seaside Park across the street from the beach, and just steps from the renowned Seaside Heights Boardwalk. It is run with the highest of standards (very clean, great staff, wireless internet, bagels and coffee); truly a fabulous family beach getaway. The owner, Tommy, couldn't be nicer or more accommodating; always available if we had questions or concerns. He goes over and above to make his motel a warm and welcoming place for you family and friends. I would definitely recommend this motel, and plan to stay there again.

Room Tip: Lower floor corner room was excellent for wheeling a stroller in and out. Tile floor, and easy acce...

This is a very nice, modest little motel only FEET from the Seaside Park beach and boardwalk. We spent 2 nights with a group of longtime friends. Our efficiency was very spacious and quiet, which was great. Most importantly, the Luna-Mar is VERY clean, which is great. Tom and the other front-desk staff are very helpful and nice, too. Our only complaint was that they allow smoking by the lovely little swimming pool. I'm not sure where else the smokers could go - the rooms are smoke-free - but it was a bit bothersome when there were a lot of smokers hanging out there. Otherwise, ideal for family and friends!

We just stayed at Luna-Mar this past Labor day weekend and totally enjoyed ourselves. The room looked brand new to us, very clean and did not expect service to replace towels and make beds during a 2 night stay. was very impressed with the staff at the front desk as well handling the coffee and bagel refills each morning and keeping towels at the pool. I have paid much more and had less service so thank you Luna-mar. The pool was wonderful, right across the street from beautiful beach access, a little further from boardwalk than had first thought but not bad and Teens had a great time. Loved the key wristbands, did not have to worry about getting them wet and the kids could keep them on their arms at the beach or on boardwalk and nobody got locked out.

We have been going down to Seaside for years and years.
This is the first time we have stayed at the Luna-Mar Motel and I must say we were so pleased. The owner and staff were very friendly, courteous & helpful in every way,
The room was clean & the bed was comfortable. They provided a flat screen TV and free wireless service for your laptop or phone. Every day they provided fresh complimentary bagels & coffee for breakfast. This motel is steps away from the beach and a short walk to the amusement park. I highly recommend this motel if you are thinking about going to Seaside. We look forward to our next trip to Seaside and will definitely stay at the Luna-Mar Motel.

Where to start? The owners are great. Make you feel right at home. Rooms are very CLEAN. They provide free bagels and coffee every morning, free beach passes, free pizza on Thursdays. It's a short walk to the boardwalk, perfect if you like it on the quieter side at night. Everyone was very friendly, an added plus when you are traveling with 2 year old twins and a 6 year old. I will DEFINITELY. Be going back again. I think I've found our recurring jersey shore "spot".

I cannot say enough about the Luna-Mar Motel. I will return again and again. As with other's reviews, they are by far the friendliest and most accommodating motel in the area. Tom, Ed and the rest of the staff are very helpful and are truly there to help you have the best shore vacation possible. It is located within a very short distance to the boardwalk making it convenient to walk for dinner, drinks or shopping. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Luna Mar in Seaside Park, NJ. This hotel is the cleanest shore motel I have ever stayed at.
They offer complimentary bagels & coffee for breakfast daily. On Thursdays they offer a complimentary pizza lunch party.
The pool is very clean. Free wifi is also available. Hotel is located across the street from the beach & offers free beach tags to its guests which saves adults $10. each
The owner is there to make sure he & his staff make your stay enjoyable.
