There were no dressers or drawers, bathroom tiles on floor were moldy, the sheets that cover the box spring was stained and filthy, the comforter was sandy and yellow on the inside don't think it was ever washed. We went to breakfast came back and they took all the wet towels out of the room and gave us fresh ones....

Chose this hotel due to TripAdviser reviews. This is a small 20 unit hotel. 1 block from the boardwalk. The price was comparable to the other hotels. I did not swim in the pool but it appeared inviting. There was even a bbq grill by the pool which I assume was for guests. The two double bed room was good....

I visited motel two nights with 3 family members. Room was very basic, small and clean. If you want fancy don't pick this one, small bathroom with shower (clean), AC works and small private pool in back. Walking distance to Boardwalk and beach, breakfast places. Owners friendly.

It's the shore...expect overpriced rooms with few frills. The owners were very polite, nice and friendly. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable and fridge, toilets and showers, a/c and TV all worked. Pretty amazing for a shore hotel room. Parking and beach passes were provided and the location can't be beat. Quiet rooms even though the area is not generally...

The location can't be beat - one block from beach and a few from the Casino Pier (rides, mini-golf, etc.), but the room was kind of gross. The shower curtain was covered in mold (not just a little, literally black all over). The bathroom was tiny (practically unusable sink, it was so small, and very cramped shower) and dingy. I...

After a not so pleasant stay at another seaside motel, we checked into the Franklin terrace. We had 2 double rooms which were clean and comfortable. The pool, although small, was clean and well kept. The location was good as it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Price was extremely good as well. If we ever...

The front desk person was very nice and helpful. Upon arrival, after signing in, I was given two beach passes and a tag to hang in my car which gave me free parking at any metered space in town. The room had two beds. Very clean and newly painted. Nice flat screen TV and a cold A/C. There was a...

Nice hotel, great staff, clean rooms, only problem is the parking. There is an on sight pool, but we didn't use it. The hotel is very close to the beach and boardwalk. There is a microwave, refrigerator and a hot plate in the room. There is a soda machine outside. Would recommend.

Clean which is really all you can ask for in Seaside. Room was ready 2 hours ahead of schedule. Small parking lot but was able to back in per the front desk recommendation. Front desk was very courteous and welcoming. Perfect for a quick weekend getaway to the beach.
