It takes alot to skeeve me out but when I walked into our room, I actually gagged twice at the smell of [--] emanating from inside - i'm CERTAIN it was urine on the carpet.

The room was very clean, 2 beds, 2 rooms, small bathroom, small table with chairs, micro-fridge and microwave. This was my primary concern, as most motels in Seaside Heights tend to be dirty. The hotel is located right on the boardwalk and beach which is nice, but its at the end of the boardwalk where things start to die down,... More

We've been going to this motel every year since we discovered it, usually around July 4th. This year we went in September with three other couples and we had a blast! The hotel is on the boardwalk, close to the fishing pier and amusement parks, but not in the center of congestion. The accomodations are clean and are good sized.... More

They are all so friendly and helpful (looked like 4 generations when we checked out in the office). Our room, which faced... More
