We stayed here for a couples night and it was good. It's close to everything and the pool was great. They do give beach passes and would stay again. The rooms were dingy and the bathroom very tiny and needed some work. All in all it was perfect what we wanted!

DO NOT EVEN THINK OF STAYING HERE!!! (The Sunrise is almost directly behind it and it's much better.) I have a sentimental soft spot for Seaside Heights especially, since Hurricane Sandy 2012. Been coming here for 40 yrs. Seaside took a beating. I'm saying this because I would NEVER beat it down unless it was well deserved...well... the Surfside Motel... More

This place needs to be shut down by the city! I can't believe that they are able to operate as a business. The room was filthy. Every inch of the carpet was stained, the shower had mold growing and the bedding was just disgusting! I tried to bring my concerns to the staff and I got verbally attacked. All I... More

Location, location, location. That is about the only thing this place has. It is half a block from the beach. Half a block from the Beachcomber bar. Two blocks from the amusement pier. Lots of restaurants nearby. It has a very nice pool right on the street which offered no privacy. The room was small. Had a tube TV that... More

Place needs, ohh where do I start! First parking, none available. When we did park, other guests told us our car wouldn't look like that by tomorrow if not moved. Could have a cleaner office. Steps to the second floor are falling apart. Most of the people there must live there. When do people bring gas grills and cook outside... More
