We returned again to Coral Seas this year. We will be retuning next year too. This has become an annual expedition for us. It is an older hotel, a classic 60s-70s appearance, but the location and pool make it worth it. The guests are friendly and parents mind their children. The staff is very friendly and mindful of their guests... More

My husband and I booked the Coral Seas for a last minute long weekend and we are very glad we chose to stay here. We really enjoyed ourselves and the location of the motel is fantastic. It's an older motel but it definitely has charm. The staff is fantastic and helpful and the place is very, very clean and well... More

Reserved for visiting family members - still very clean with great beach access. The rooms and pool are cared for, still needs a little updating, (bring your own pillows), but the friendly staff and cleanliness make up for the minor update needs. Very relaxing by the pool!

The Coral Seas is an older hotel. But so are all the other hotel choices in the area. The staff is friendly and efficient. The pictures on the website accurately represent the hotel. The hotel has paneling, smells a musty and has small bathrooms. But the location and cleanliness of the motel kind of balance out. To combat the musty... More

The good news is the hotel room was very clean, bad news is the hotel is in dire need of a renovation. The rooms are decorated with cheap lamps, tables and furnishings. There is wood paneling and indoor/outdoor brown carpeting in each room. A very small bathroom, with no fan, a small mirror and poor lighting. The bedspreads were cheap... More

We just made our second visit to Coral Seas, and I think it is an excellent spot to stay for a beach vacation. The motel provides basic services (no food), and you cannot view it as a luxury destination. 1. It's a great location! We parked for days without moving the car and had full walking access to the beach,... More

My family and I have been coming to the Coral Seas for many years. The rooms are clean and the location is perfect. The hotel is on the beach and an easy walk to many Beach Haven locations. It is a family hotel -- no bar -- so the hotel is generally quiet. The pool is very nice and a... More

Proximity to the beach is awesome and the pool was beautiful! Within walking distance to lots of places. The room could use some upgrading and it smelled like grandmas, but it was clean and had everything that you needed. Would stay here again.

The Coral Seas Hotel was a wonderful "long weekend get away" for us from the City in mid September. We have been coming to LBI for close to 30 years for a long weekend or two during the year. Normally we stay at the Spray Beach hotel, but they had a wedding and no rooms on ocean front to be... More
