I wanted to like this place so much, because of its proximity to the boardwalk, and it's friendly staff; I really did. But there were too many deal breakers. First, we booked a room with a sea view- assuming that meant you could see the sea. Instead we got a close up view of the two vending machines and not... More

I was in aw at how compact this room was. The motel did not provide maid service. You had to rent a microwave. I rented a beach front suite and was given a apartment suite, when I complained a booking agent said that you can't order a suite online, you have to call it in. It only had 1 TV... More

We found our room to be clean, great shower, found the management to be pleasant to us..great location and view! Only one complaint was we were only given 2 bath towels and we definitely needed more from the start..you have to return the used towels in exchange for new ones which was very annoying for us, not used to that...

Down the shore location is everything. Sand and surf motel has it. Right on the boardwalk. Perfect. Easy to get to. And accommodating owners. Second stay at this facility. Will be back. Only complaint is that we could have used 2 keys.

So my friend and I just wanted a place to sleep, shower, and keep our stuff while we visited the shore for the weekend and that is exactly what we got. Clearly a motel, however it was very clean and the room was pretty spacious for the price. We were right on the boardwalk so we didn't need our car... More

Got early check in no prob, but, the room reeked of mildew! I had a sore throat n headache from what I'm sure was mold exposure. When we got home I had to wash everything we took with us, including the bed pillows because the stench permeated all our belongings, it was gross. The a/c unit rattled horribly, lousy nights...

We stayed here over the weekend! It was the worst experience I ever had at a hotel/motel ever! Upon arrival at 10:30am, I was told we could not get our beach badges for the day or park in the lot until 2pm. The staff especially the older man was extremely rude! Upon check-in, I was told I had a balance... More
