I had read the reviews on Seaside Heights NJ and had heard it was a party town and was a little concerned about going to visit there. I was delighted by the family atmosphere of the place and found it to be a delightful end of summer vacation. The boardwalk was alot of fun, the ocean was beautiful and I... More

We stayed for one week at the Buoy 16 and found the motel to be clean and quite. If you're looking for a good location, the motel is located right next to the Boardwalk and the Seaside Heights Water Park. It is an older motel, but the rooms are spacious and parking is also included which is great. Jack and... More

The location is great, the boardwalk is right across the street. There is also an entrance to the beach right across from the motel. They have parking on the property, which we found to be really convenient. The place is pretty old, everything is dark brown but rooms were of good size. Only complaint is about the cleaning. The floors... More

For the price you pay at thia Motel it is a steal!! The room was small but very clean. It was so close to the beach you really dont need a pool. I went down for the volleyball and it was a very short walk down the boardwalk. The room was a little dated but who cares we were only... More

First of all, I want to say I wasn't expecting anything close to a 5 star resort/hotel. I also want to mention the owners were very polite. Polite, unfortunately, does not account for lack of cleanliness in the room. The brown carpets looked to have not been vacuumed in some time (or thoroughly at the least) and there was a... More

I found the Buoy 16 by walking back from the beach to the La Fontana( which I was checking out of because it was very dirty). The owners of the Buoy were wonderful. They calmed me down and showed me the one room they had left to rent. Of course I jumped on it. The room was very clean. The... More

I must say I was initially concerned about staying here because I usually stay at 4 star hotels and it is a non chain Motel at the beach. I pictured drunk rowdy kids running around. Okay, it is not 4/5 star but once I was there I did not care. It was very clean and very quiet. The furniture is... More

The Buoy was a great place to stay..Right off the boardwalk and amazingly very quite..The room was clean and comfortable and the owners were very nice. Once there you never had to move your car everything was at your finger tips. There is nothing fancy it's simple and well kept and comfortable. I'd go back with no questions.

The Bouy was a great place to stay ! It was very clean, close to everything. I never needed to move my car. Just crossed the street to boardwalk and ocean. No pool, no screaming kids...very relaxing. Owners are fantastic, willing to please.
