Home away from home! Rich and his family have created a clean, quiet and comfy oasis in Pt. Pleasant Beach! The property is immaculate- cut grass, no garbage. The rooms are clean. Our room had new furniture-lots of storage space. Lovely pool! Everyone is friendly and helpful. Short walk to beach and restaurants. If you are looking for a safe, clean and quiet place to stay in Point Beach, this is your place!

I am very disappointed in the booking process experience I had. I called multiple times during office hours and reached a message that said I couldn’t leave a message. I finally got in touch and the woman on the phone was extremely rude. I asked for room availability for August and she told me that the rest of my group ( my family) would have to each individually call to ask for room availability as she wouldn’t tell me the exact amount of rooms she had left. I started to say that this would be a problem because I didn’t want to book knowing that the rest of my family may not get rooms and she cut me off saying they were extremely busy. Such a shame because my family and I ( all grown adults) would have been booking many rooms in their hotel.

If you like a clean motel, are hardly on property, and don’t mind owners and housekeeping in your room all the time, then this is your spot. There is mandatory housekeeping everyday. What? I felt so uncomfortable that someone had to go in my room. I always use Marriotts when traveling and thought quite odd that there was mandatory room visits. We were there only two nights and the after the first night housekeeping workers and owners sister in my room 3 times! I am in my 60s and felt like a college student having room checks. In addition, fairly early in evening about 9:15 pm, sitting outside room with spouse watching football game, we were told too loud. All guests outside were told this as owner walked over to 70 year olds down the walkway to tell them they were too loud. We saw hardly any kids and after reading other reviews after we had already checked in realized the problem. This is strange Motel and yes clean but never will go back.

We just left this morning and had another great stay! The rooms, pool, and grounds are incredibly clean. Every single employee we encountered is super friendly and they even called and sent me a text when I left my charger there. The price and location make it our favorite place to spend a few nights down the shore.

My daughter (12) stayed at the Surfside Motel in August 2022 and had such a wonderful time. The accommodations were extremely clean and comfortable. Will most definitely be back next summer! Thank you Surfside for such an enjoyable visit.

This motel continues to impress. I have stayed with family for several years now and each year the experience is fantastic, the rooms are perfect, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. No other option for a place to stay suits our needs as perfectly as this - family oriented, close to beach, and close to boardwalk. Today I had another exceptional customer service experience with the staff and I so appreciate their help. Thank you for providing a fun, family oriented, safe place to enjoy the beach in NJ. We really can't wait until we are able to go again.

My husband and I stayed here in the off-season for 1 night. We had the King Room with Whirlpool. Often the tubs are way too gross to even consider using, but this one was Spotless and HUGE. Used the tub 3 times in a 1 night stay. Room was small but immaculately clean. Perfect for a couple looking to have a nice night away. Wouldn't bring kids here based on the rules and reviews I read below.

WARMEST, NICEST PEOPLE & BEST POINT PLEASANT STAY: My wife and I having been getting-away to PP for years, whenever we could. We would drive back from July 4th. Fireworks very late,with Dauntless cruise, or stay at a pricey B&B. We were so truly amazed at how remarkably clean The Surfside Motel was (every single aspect showed infinite dedication toward keeping this Point Pleasant gem, as polished, sanitary, and welcoming as humanly possible,) that not only did we cherish our week long stay during the July 4th Holiday, we quickly booked another return week, for my wife’s Birthday, the 3rd week of August! We are very concerned about only vacationing at the cleanest possible places, to the point where my wife makes me overpack and include all our own cotton linens and pillows. At Surfside, it proved really unnecessary. Everything was immaculate beyond words, and not just the rooms, but the same dedication to detail extended to the crystal clean, heated Pool, and the beautiful surrounding grounds and parking lot. Honestly, after such a difficult Covid-19 related year (plus) and recent unrelated hospital stay, I started-out just a tiny bit concerned with the word “motel.” As it turned-out, this was much, much more like a boutique Inn, fussed-over by Richard, the Manager, his family, and outstanding (family-like) staff! Words like “gracious hospitality” and “dedicated service” do not even begin to cover what we joyfully experienced during BOTH our wonderful stays this summer! Rich, his friendly family, and devoted staff ALL made us feel so very welcome and could not do enough to optimize our stay and accommodate our every request or need. Can you tell? We fell in LOVE with this great place and the great people that maintain it! Yes, there are rules, as mentioned by some other reviewers. My wife and I have held down 4 jobs at one time, in the past, all requiring a certain degree of rules or regulations in order to assure positive outcomes for all members of the public and optimized management of logistics. We have traveled to many places and under a myriad of conditions. Do you know what we have generally discovered about most people that wax on about “....all the restrictive rules?” We have come to realize that many of said people really mean, “let us have our own version of party-hearty fun, by intrusively trampling on the rights, safety, health, and enjoyment of all the other guests!” Nobody has the personal liberty to potentially cause harm or heartache to others! As I mentioned, we were able to feel truly safe, secure, and cared-for, because there were necessary rules in place that ALL assured the quiet and complete enjoyment of most ALL the grateful guests, and Rich and his dedicated staff, devoted themselves 24/7 to again ensuring consideration to EVERYBODY spending money to stay at Surfside. No matter when we returned for the night, from the many fine places to dine, nor headed-out early to enjoy a wonderful breakfast out at an equal numbers of nearby establishments, we would almost always either see Rich, his family, or staff, working so hard to maintain some aspect of the Surfside! In the end, they were far from being just about the needed rules. They were all so dedicated to helping us with whatever we needed, or advising us on all the helpful details with Point Pleasant vacation destinations and area establishments. It literally breaks our heart, to see (mainly) one single group, that was looking to “barrel-into” the motel, disregard the safety and needs of the guest already present, create disorderly disruption, disregard the safety of their very own children, and loudly party-on, smoke and rudely engage the sweet staff, to previously “shotgun” negative reviews, under different names, online, in a disheartening attempt to hurt this outstanding business! It matters little, in the end, as ALL those that we congenially interacted with, during BOTH our stays this summer, were truly (also) in love with the Surfside and their great hospitality! In fact, we felt like such “newbies,” as most of those we conversed with, had been brining their families for many years and couldn’t wait (like us) to return again, as soon as they could! It is offensive that they online inaccurately disparage with a word like “racist” when we constantly witnessed them treating ALL the guests, regardless of race or national origin/cultural heritage, with the same high degree of kindness and congeniality that they showed us! They just ask that all their guest act responsibly and I with empathy for all! If you want a “party cave” PLEASE, go elsewhere! The fact that they take seriously the noise, smoking, parking, pool, age, and other rules, means our stay was made exponentially better! I could likewise sleep much more soundly, knowing that they take due diligence in confirming the identity of those staying there. Even as we enjoyed Point Pleasant via a personal penguin encounter at the aquarium, or a lovely breakfast at I’m a Local cafe, or a tasty dinner at The Poached Pear, Atlantic Fishery, or Daniels, or took our firework cruise onboard Capt Bill’s Dauntless, EVERYBODY knew of Rich and The Surfside as the cleanest and BEST motel/hotel in town! A reputation both deserved and duly quite earned over time!
