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

So first of all I was convinced there were cameras in our rooms. Our room was right on the street and people were knocking and tried to come in. A staff member suddenly appeared within seconds telling them to get out. They were teenage boys and I was with my teenage friends so truthfully... I didn't have a huge problem... 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

My room was big enough for 4 people, staff was great and welcoming, parking was a bit of an issue. Location was amazing, besides there being no pool and the door making weird noises at times, all around it was a great 3 night stay in seaside with friends and family.

The room is not large but it is CLEAN. We were only in the room to sleep and change, did not need anything fancy and this was perfect. The owners were polite and very helpful, buy your beach passes from here too. The location is perfect! Park your car and walk to whatever you want to do. Stayed 3 night... More

My three friends and I traveled from Albany Ny down to the shore for a girls vacatioin. Booking the hotel was easy and the owners were very helpful. We did the 4 night special which was totally worth it. Once we got there they were super friendly and even switched our rooms so that we wouldnt have to stay in... More
