This motel is centrally located for the main attractions and rides. It is also one of the closest to the beach. However, it behind one of the ride piers, so can be noisey. The northside, though older, is quieter and the pool isn't so crowded. The rooms are very clean, but the bedspreads are the old flower patterned type from... More

Hotel was clean and nice. They are updating rooms, one section at a time. We had an older room but it was still clean and nice. They should update those old bedspreads and it would seem like a partial reno for cheap. They must be from the 70s. I understand new furniture, fixtures and carpet must be budgeted and done... More

Thank you for visiting the Impala Island Inn while in Ocean City. It is true that we are a tourist destination throughout the summer. Our proximity to the attractions can be an asset for families.

We loved our stay at the Impala Inn, the pool was really nice and the room was clean, best of all they already had extra towels in the room waiting for us :) We were traveling with our one year old so having the mini-fridge for his snacks and drinks was a must. Also loved being able to park my... More

We stayed here one night for an event we were actually attending in AC. Close enough to there without all the other traffic/hype. It was off season so it was a great price. Very close to the boardwalk so we even took a walk up there. Not much was open because of the time of year but it was still... More

On spur of moment decided to do first night in Ocean City, New Jersey. Many other properties were booked so were thrilled but somewhat hesitant when able to make a reservation here. Room rate was very reasonable and a factor in staying four nights versus two. Upon arrival, thrilled to find a very clean room that was super spacious. King... More
