We have stayed at Tangiers two years in a row. This year we stayed August 2nd-6th, and last year, August 3rd-6th. For a basic double queen bed room, it cost us $150 per night. This motel is the second hotel in from the beach and boasts nice ocean views. It is located about a block away from the beginning of the boardwalk. Tangiers seems to be a sure bet as far as knowing what we're getting.
The positives: Nice location, quick walk to boardwalk, Primo Hoagies, and Tony Lukes. Very pretty ocean views that are mostly unobstructed if you are on the third floor. The grounds and pool area are relatively clean and well kept.
The negatives: When we stayed in 2012, the room seemed much cleaner than it was this year. It didn't appear the room was vacuumed or windexed prior to our arrival. They did not change the sheets during our stay, only remaking the bed with the same used linens. As with most motels along the shore, the bathrooms are very outdated. The toilet did not work that well - having to hold down the handle during the entire lengthy flush process.
Overall, Tangiers is a reliable motel for a fair price.
