Stayed here one night. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Rooms was dated. But, an okay value for the proximity to the boardwalk and beach. Wifi worked inconsistently. Microwave was old, and worked poorly. Pool is small, but you're going for the beach, right?

We started off on a great foot with the lovely girl who checked us in. At about 10 PM a man comes out screaming at us that we have too many adults. My husband explained we have two children under 5 and two teenagers with us. The hotel keeper disagreed and expected us to pay. We paid an extra $15... More

Spent a night in Seaside Heights. Looked at a few reviews and picked the Franklin Terrace. Clean property with about 20 rooms. Pros: Staff was very nice, the basic room was clean with fridge and microwave. Small clean pool on premises. I was given a beach tag for the day which was a nice bonus. Cons: Beds were not real...

We booked a one night stay based on the positive reviews the Franklin has received. And we weren't disappointed. The room was very clean upon check-in and surprise, the AC was already on, unlike others have stayed at. The rooms aren't very big, but they do pack a fridge, microwave and stove top into the space. The owners were there... More

Seaside is a town struggling to survive. Many hotels have gone downhill and this place was a pleasant surprise. My first impression from the outside was of a well maintained place. It appears family owned and we were quickly checked in. We were asked to please not smoke in the room or be loud which was no problem. The room... More
