This place was absolutely disgusting. We would not recommend that anyone stay at this hotel. There was vomit outside our door, curtain shades on the windows that don't close, old ratty towels and the locks on the doors don't work. Stay far away. We tried to find another hotel but everything was booked.

Thank Maria M

I stayed here with some friends on a Saturday in July. The only good thing about this hotel is the location being one block from the boardwalk. The management here is so terrible, the lady couldn't keep track of anything that we told her and was forgetful. The room did not have a safe. After we got back from a... More

We have never been to the Jersey Shore, so booked this on the spur of the moment. We didn't' expect much, but this was less than that. Apparently, the reality TV shows set in Seaside Heights have turned it into a party town, so that most of the motels -- the term hotel is a stretch for any of them--... More

The service here was absolutely awful. The 19 year old who is supposedly in charge was rude and tried to make us pay even more than the original price that he told us. It was very unprofessional and disgusting how he had his friends smoking weed in the room next to the check in. What was also very unprofessional was... More

My friends and I (anywhere from 3 to 6 people at a time) stayed at Seaside Sands Inn from Saturday, July 7th until Friday July 13th. We had a great stay overall. We booked our room through Booking.com which saved us about $100 for the week. When I first checked in there was trouble because they did not have my... More

One of the cheapest motels in the area but definitely the price reflected the quality. We still ended up paying $93 per night + tax for a room with 2 double beds as we were 4 people. The bathrooms were not very clean and the toilet did not work very well. The WIFI worked great and so did the TV.... More
