“Seaside perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

My husband, 2 sons and I have been staying at Ocean Terrace for the past two years. The owners and staff are accommodating & welcoming. The hotel is very family orientated and the rooms are clean, large with great seaside decor. Check-in as a guest and check-out feeling like family! Future trips to Seaside with a stay at Ocean Terrace already planned!

I am originally from New Jersey, but moved out in 1983. I first lived in West Virginia and now in Kentucky the past 26 years. I was going to visit my family and classmates from high school in the summer of 2012. I wanted to spend some time down the shore. I was so frustrated trying to find reasonable prices, but most of all a comfortable place to stay. Finally at the last minute my wife located Ocean Terrace. I could not have been happier with the location to the beach and boardwalk. Rooms were very clean, pool was fun for the grandchildren, price of the rooms reasonable, and the staff was friendly, courteous but most of all helpful. We enjoyed the other guests, and everyone was telling stories how Ocean Terrace was superior to other hotels in the area. We enjoyed it so much, we came back in 2013.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was wonderful and we had no complaints. Maureen took prompt care of all of our requests. We are looking forward to coming back this year and making this an annual tradition.

Gwen,
We love when families make our place their annual vacation choice. It's great building relationships with guests. We've watched children grow up and come back with their own kids! Very gratifying.

In September 2011, in honor of my year-long 60th birthday celebration, my family rented Unit #2 (second and third floors) in the Stockton Avenue house and had the most fantastic time! Unit #2 has three private bedrooms (each has a queen-sized bed), two indoor bathrooms (one with a tub and the other with just a shower), one outdoor shower, a large eat-in kitchen (fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware, utensils), a HUGE great room (lots of comfortable furniture and a large flat-screen TV), and a glassed-in sunroom/porch. There's a large BBQ grill in the backyard along with very nice picnic tables. Oh, and it's air conditioned, too! There are two sets of stairs to the unit, one in the front and the other in the back, both of which are quite steep and long. Our legs definitely got worked out! There's plenty of off-street parking. The house is located just two blocks from the beach and the pool at the motel. The beach is clean and was close to the Funhouse Pier. The motel pool is exquisite - large and clean with lots of sun. The pool terrace with its many tables and lounge chairs is a fantastic sunny spot to meet up with family and friends, as it overlooks both the pool and the ocean. We were so happy to hear that Seaside Best Rentals was unaffected by Hurricane Sandy and are definitely thinking that we may book a week in 2014. The folks who run Seaside Best Rentals couldn't be any nicer or more helpful. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Ocean Terrace in late June 2013. The weather was changing, but being across the street from the beach, who cared! Plus, on misty days, we simply walked the boardwalk. We are hoping that the Ice Cream Stand rebuilds, it was our nightly treat to end our day. Sadly, while we were there, my mother fell and broke her knee. Our original reservation time was ending, yet Maureen and her staff kept us in our condo so we could continue to go back and forth to the hospital. Worrying about my mother's health was hard enough. It was a relief that we didn't have to worry about where my son and I would lay our heads at night. Needless to say, the extra 5 nights of our stay were accommodated, Mom is doing better and we are looking forward to returning and thanking all in person for their care, concern, and help during this stressful period. It was like we were with family.

My family has been going to Seaside for 58 years…every summer since 1955!! We rented bungalows back in the day and for close to 20 years we have been staying at the Ocean Terrace. We have been through many managers, but the current team of Stu and Maureen and their entire staff has been the best ones in all that time! The place has never looked nicer and cleaner, they have updated so many things to make your stay more comfortable and they couldn’t be more accommodating…ALL OF THEM!!! When we go back every summer, it’s like seeing family. The rooms are spotless, all flat screen TVs, refrigerators, and you have a choice from regular hotel style rooms all the way up to 3 bedroom condos. You also can’t beat the location. They are right across the street from the beach and boardwalk, yet not in the middle of the craziness….quiet but close. PERFECT! Walking distance to all….beach, bars, restaurants, rides, boardwalk, arcades…very convenient. They also have a heated pool which is great on those days when the beach is too rough or for those who just don’t like the ocean. I highly recommend the Ocean Terrace and I don’t see my family leaving there any time soon.

Wow! 58 years. That must be a record! Seaside has gone through changes and we continue to be a thriving community for all those who love the Jersey Shore. And, you're right. The heated pool is wonderful for people who need a break from ocean waves. It's so great that we can offer both!
