We stayed overnight. For a last minute booking it was a good price. The owner was very nice and on site all the time. The room was spacious and had a full size fridge. I was a little concerned that they kept my ID while we had the beach passes, although they did toss in an extra pass for my... More

Clean......, for the most part. Old tattered towels, cheap everything etc. I received a lecture about partying and noise, then was escorted down a loud hallway with people clearly partying in their rooms. Not sure why people say the owners were nice. One of the brothers almost jumped the desk at check-out because I mentioned being charged for one level... More

boardwalk and beach was extremely close; the rooms were clean and the management was nice and very helpful. only problem that some might not like is bc it is so close to the beach and the boardwalk, it gets a little noisy at night, but that's all. highly recommend and when we come back to seaside, we plan to stay...

Must say we had a pretty pleasant experience when staying at the Buoy 16. Check in was easy, the room was ready earlier than the actual check in time, so they let us know which was nice. One of the first things I do when arriving to the room is to move a piece of furniture to see if they... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. It was great. The place is clean and management is very helpful. It is right in the middle of everything going on. Extremely quiet for where it is located. We are going to go back to this motel every time we go to Seaside. The only downfall if you have kids there is no pool.

This is the second season that we have traveled to Seaside Heights, NJ and once again we stayed at the Buoy 16 Motel. The rooms were upgraded during the winter months. My wife and I once again had a very pleasant experience. This Motel is truly in the heart of Seaside Heights. This Motel is worth checking out.

This place was a total waste of money. Smelled musty, mold in bathroom, large gap under door. Stamming doors all night, no dead bolt on door- a little chain lock that a 5 year old could pull open. No phone, no room service. Had to chase down towels every day and take out own trash or chase them down for... More

Pictures are very misleading. Rooms old fashioned looks like from the 50's. Mold in bathroom. Tiny rooms, no ice machine, no pool, carpets were nasty! Do not stay here. We thought their was a pool from photos and there was not. We are use to staying at nicer places we should've known when they didn't even send an email confirmation.... More
