Great location - within walking distance to the boardwalk/beach. Parking included, provides discounted beach passes, owners are very friendly. The room was a good size and clean. Only complaint might be that the bed was a little uncomfortable and the showers were tiny.

Please do me a favor and take my review seriously. I benefit greatly from the reviews and want the community to get the same benefit, The service is bad, the sheets are smelly, the towels are a joke and the cherry on top is no room service. If you pay a penny more that $20 a night it's not worth... More

If you are looking for luxury this is not the place but if you are looking for affordable, friendly, great location then this is a top choice. Went with my sister, my son and his girlfriend and loved the location. Right off the boardwalk near great food and games. Manager was extremely helpful and attentive. Would stay again. Only downside... More

I read all the reviews about this hotel and the others in the area. Based on what we had to pick from, wanting to stay only 2 nights on the Jersey Shore, this was the best of what was available from what I read - which turned out to be true. Alex and Adam were very kind and hospitable. The... More

Stayed here one night while waiting for a rental down the shore on a Friday. The key with this place is location and that is pretty much it although guys who run the front desk were pretty cool, the place needs a serious upgrade. Typical run down beach motel, dark rooms with little to no furnishings and hard mattresses. The... More

My wife and I returned once again this year to a newly sided exterior of the Motel. The room we stayed in on the second floor was very quiet and extremely clean! Obviously, the location is probably the best in Seaside Heights! Those who are looking for a good time in Seaside Heights and a reasonably priced Motel must check... More

Just returned and we were pleasantly surprised! We had never been so did not know what to expect. We checked in Friday night everything went perfect. We parked the car in their safe lot and did not need the car again except to drive home. This motel is in the perfect location. Close to everything! Steps from beach and boardwalk.... More

Stopped in for one night after a day trip to the Jersey Shore. I checked in at 3pm, and found the staff to be friendly, polite, and very efficient. I was quickly shown where to park, and then shown to my room. The room was very big, clean, and had everything we needed (AC, fridge, TV). The bed was smaller... More
