went in with some friends while visiting the shore. we had no expectations going in, just a place to have a drink. This place looks like nothing has been done to it since we were in there 40 yrs.ago. it's dark, smelly and my beer was warm. we stayed as long as it took to finish our drinks.

This hotel is in sad shape. The beds are old, the bathrooms had rust stains on the tile, the carpeting was sticky..... It needs a total overhaul. The people who were managing were very nice and tried to be accommodating. I guess due to the fact that there is no competition for a hotel in sea isle, they don't see... More

A girlfriend and I visited for a long weekend over Skimmer Weekend. The bar and attached pizza place gets crazy but security is very present and kept the drunks out of the hotel area. This is definitely a party property. Our room was a 2 double on the ground floor. The decor was dated but the room was very clean.... More

I challenge anyone to find a better place for: GREAT bartenders, Awesome lice music, #1 Tiki Bar at the shore! Fantastic crowd looking to have an incredible time. Anyone that takes themselves too serious stay away! If you are looking for fun in Sea Isle the ONLY place to go is LA Costa! LA Costa

We headed for the LaCosta to join the Jerry Blavat Sunday afternoon Jam Session (4-7pm) in the Lounge - a Shore tradition during the summer for people from Philly and South Jersey, Geatorville. We arrived early to check out the scene in Sea Isle City. There’s a small parking lot at LaCosta - one of our friends joining us actually... More

Horrible motel, and even worse management. The rooms are extremely outdated with broken items in the room... and watch out, because they will charge you for those broken items that were already defective. Cockroaches are present. Ironically, the rooms are entirely overpriced as well. It is very unclean and very uncomfortable - Sea Isle is a great beach town but... More

Great town to have a good old fashioned beach buzz. The jersey shore gets a bad rap from the bull%^& on tv. This is not Seaside Heights. Great destination if you have kids. Restaurants are very competitive- hit the lobster loft by the amusement park for great seafood. Tiki bar is awesome.

Broke air conditioner, damp floor and bedding, weird smell in room. Add in the rudeness of the staff... real downer to my vacation. Left after first night. Was told I would receive refund for additional two nights, still haven't heard back from owner. Save your money.
