My son and I just returned from a 3 day stay, which was the first time we went anywhere since COVID hit, and I would definitely recommend this motel. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was VERY clean. I had brought my own Lysol and disinfecting wipes with me, but I didn't even feel the need to use them. There was a young man constantly going around the property cleaning and spraying down the commonly touched areas. All the staff members wore masks. Hand sanitizer was stationed by the ice machine and pool, and a mask was required when getting ice or entering the office. The location is in a great spot, within walking distance to many restaurants, the boardwalk, and most importantly the beach! The daily beach passes are just another added bonus to staying at this motel as well. When I come back, I will definitely will not hesitate to book a room here again and recommend to my friends to stay here as well.

We just returned from a 4 night trip to the Surfside Motel. This was an unusual time for a vacation as we are still in the midst of a pandemic. I was most concerned about cleanliness and this motel was IMMACULATE! We stayed in a first floor, king bed room. It was basic, as this is a motel, not a fancy resort, but it was roomy enough for 2 and had a nice little table and chairs in the room, plus two chairs right outside the door. The bed was comfortable and we had many pillows - 5 or 6! We did not use the pool, but saw that it looked very clean with nice lounge chairs. There were a lot of guests clearly enjoying it.

The bathroom has a shower stall. The sink does not have a counter, but there is a small shelf for your toiletries. There were a lot of hooks to hang towels or clothing. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner. The one provided was tiny. Hairdryer in bathroom and well-working mini-fridge in the room.

Location was convenient. No beach or ocean views, but an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. There were several restaurants within walking distance. The price of the rooms is a great value for something so close to the beach in July. We would definitely recommend the Surfside Motel to anyone looking for a clean, quiet and comfy beach vacation.

We absolutely love this place!
The hotel is spotless, the pool is exactly what the kids need, and the staff is the best. Their Covid policies (at check in, check out, etc) were exactly what they should be. Every time we come we love how clean and quiet the rooms are, the staff knows everything about the area and are a great resource for recommendations. We love this place and will definitely be back!

This motel has it all- friendly staff, a great pool, cleanliness and the best location- right near seafood restaurants and bars and a less than ten minute walk to the beach and boardwalk.
This will be my go-to place whenever I'm in Point Pleasant. Can't wait to visit 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.

Book it. Seriously trust me. Nicest beach motel I've ever stayed at and I am retired. Great price, great people, attention to detail. No smoking anywhere on property. Very clean bathrooms, floors, sheets and beds great. Heck better than most peoples homes.
If you got this far, look no further and book it now. Trust me. I'll always come back and I don't expect to ever find a better place. Book second floor if you can. Either way its great. We stayed 2 days and then decided to stay 2 more (had to switch rooms) and both rooms spotless and clean through out. Rates very good. I've used bigger chains and they were never as clean as this. Rare find. You want top dollar hotel with all the fancy stuff, then pay 4 times as much if you can even find it around here. I'd rate this motel better than any hotel/motel around. I've never given a rating like this before and I'm tough on them.

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.

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.

To echo everyone else here, Surfside Motel runs a strict shift with keeping the premises clean and presentable. The service is great and the proximity to the beach is fine. Meets the standards of Point Pleasant.

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.
