Room smelled like smoke and pee all at the same time. Noisy and sketchy characters outside the room at 3am. Parking across the street - sketchy. Worst of all - day 2 all we needed was clean towels, yet there was someone else's gross hair all over our shower and our "clean" towels - GROSS! Dirty liquor bottles under the... More

Just tried booking a room at the Anchor Motel. It was for my daughter and her friends, so it was last minute and all of the better motels were booked. I called and was told that they had 1 double room left. Their website shows the room is $159/night. The woman who answered told me she could do it for... More

Standard room. Nothing fancy. Friendly front desk. Got free beach passes. Bathroom clean but small. Air conditioner was loud but kept cool. Biggest problem was room was non-smoking, and it smelled terribly of smoke. Linens smelled like smoke. It probably solid to help the person cleaning the rooms smelled like a smoke bomb. In the end, it gave us a... More

If you had informed the front desk they would have gladly switched your room to your satisfactory. I just wished you had mentioned something which... More

Very plain room, no decoration whatsoever. Couldn't get wifi, no ice machine. No phone in room, not that I would have used it. Small pool. Good points, tile floor (hate carpet in hotels) clean. Newer TV. Cheapest price but for 170 would expect better even near the beach.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our establishment for your short gateaway. Our rooms are basic and do not have phones in the room since everyone nowadays have cell phone. We have removed all the carpet for all of our rooms since tile is more easy to maintain and also it does not hold any odor. We are not the... More

The house was beautiful,clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to use the hotel pool which was also very nice. The kids loved it. Everyone had there own bed. We are a family of 5. We were also given beach badges. I recommend this house for anyone with children.

The apartment was average. A good option for fitting a lot of people. The beds are not very comfortable and there was no blanket. Only a sheet and mattress duvet (which most places do not regularly wash). The bathroom could really use an update. It smelt like urine, the curtain was ripped and dirty. The Mirrored cabinet above the sink... More

It was good for a two day weekend, but I wouldn't stay for a week. The room was clean as was the fridge and bathroom but it smelled a bit of smoke. The walls were also paper thin but for the price it's expected.

We went for a few nights. The cost was nice. The beach was very close too. The pool was small and the air conditioner was moldy. You get the picture. Aptly named: I can't believe this place has not gone under yet.

This is a typical Jersey shore motel. It was clean but there was nothing special about it. The hotel is in a good location and was easy to find. The beds are uncomfortable, and the rooms are very sparsely decorated. they do however have a refrigerator and microwave. the staff/owners were very very nice.
