This was my second visit to the Beach Tower by the Sea and it was a great experience both times. Rooms are reasonable priced, clean and close to shopping, dining and the county pier. Staff was friendly. They have even added a breakfast consisting of apples, muffins, cereal and bagels. Really enjoyed the stay.

Good - The manager was very nice and professional. The location was steps away from the beach. There was a well-maintained pool. Wi-Fi worked better in the breakfast area than in the actual rooms (I was on the 4th floor however). Minor Issues - I stayed 3 nights and the first room had a problem with the balcony door. It...

Spent two nights at this hotel and would not do so again. That being said,the location is GREAT. It is close to restaurants, shops, and there is not a great distance to the pier. The hotel itself could use some work. The GOOD -location -plenty of space in the room -balcony -beautiful ocean front view The BAD -if you are... More

I typically stay in a beach front condo if I'm in town for a week or with a larger group but when it's just the two of us, this is our place. Lobby has completely been remodeled recently and is very nice and pretty. They closed the back "lounging" area in for a breakfast room. I was kinda sad to... More

I didn't really expect much from this hotel because it was very small, but we had a great experience. The gentleman who checked us in was nice and let us know that there was free breakfast (cereals, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee) between 7 and 10am. There was also free wifi and a small pool that was warm. Much of the... More

Arrived @ 8:00 PM Saturday night, 6/11/16. We had requested 2 rooms close together because it was a family trip. We had to stay on a different floor the 1st night so we knew we couldn’t get settled in. After 13 hr drive, it was not a good way to start. The floors were so dirty in the 1st room... More

Stayed in a double queen with a balcony. Room was clean and room service came by daily if needed. Great access to the beach, with a nice (if small) pool as well. Only downsides were no hot tub and poolside tiki bar was shut down as well, apparently they are replacing or reopening it next year. Would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is clean and employees are very friendly. My disappointment is the ocean having the stinky algae in it. It is really sad to see it like this. The ocean needs fixed. Otherwise this is a great place to stay but really don't even want to be in the water here.

Very nice smaller hotel. The location to restaurants was handy. Not a lot of traffic in front of the hotel. Loved being so close to the pier for fishing. The only two complaints I have is the floors need a deep cleaning as your socks are black in know time and the beds aren't the most comfortable. I would definitely... More
