This was our first time staying in a Jersey Shore motel & we did so with some trepidation as our family normally travels in 4-5 star name brand resort properties. We were, however, pleasantly surprised. This is a family owned business & from my initial phone call with the son, to our check in process with the dad, everything was great. Our 2nd floor room had 2 queen beds, a small kitchenette area (which we didn't use other than the small fridge) & a petite bathroom. The room was very clean. WHITE bedding (hooray!). Small table/chairs and TV. We parked our car right below our room & left it there for our 2 day/1 night stay. 1 block to the beach. We were also invited by the owners/manager to pool hop to the owners' nearby other properties (where, at the Gondolier, a poolside party was underway). Just a few blocks to the WW Boardwalk. We had a slight problem getting our room key (yes, key) to work, and the on-site maintenance man was there within minutes. We didn't know that shore motels do not provide toiletries other than bar soap, but the owner kindly offered to provide me with some anyway. We were glad to be overlooking the parking lot because we assumed the pool area might be a bit noisy with kids laughing/splashing etc. Overall, this was a fun weekend getaway and we would definitely stay in one of this family's properties again.
