This was my first stay at this little gem. You cannot find a better location or a cleaner motel. Sure the interior is not updated, which makes it feel like you are a kid staying with your grandparents down the shore, which to me is a good thing! And I'm completely bewildered at how they keep those vintage tiles in... More

I stayed at the Lark Motel as sort of a last minute getaway. I was pleasantly surprised by this motel. It was clean, quiet and quite delightful! So close to the beach and shops. My visits to the beach were restful and relaxing, as the beach was not crowded at all. I could not have picked a better place! The... More

My husband and I have visited The Lark several times and each time the staff/owners gets more and more rude. They don't care to give you information, they feel that you should read it online instead, they are very short, and their cancellation policy is absolutely absurd (charging money for cancelations that occur over 30 days prior). It's a shame... More

I wrote a review of The Lark in 2012, and my daughters and I still go there. In fact this was our 24th season. You can't beat the location, a block from the beach and the up scale shops. The beach is clean and never crowded like some of the other shore points. The staff is great, very friendly and... More

Such a nice staff at the hotel. We arrived early on Friday and was able to get into our room. Our room was a bit dated but we were comfortable. The pool was heated and enjoyable. We were able to walk into the town and an easy walk to the beach. We had a very nice weekend.

My daughter and i stayed here overnight for a quick beach trip. It is a lovely little motel just a block from the beach. The gentleman that checked us in was so welcoming and gave us fabulous restaurant recommendations. The rooms were amazingly clean and the hotel has managed to keep the retro look in the furnishings which my daughter... More

We originally chose to stay at the Lark Motel for the great location but we keep returning because of so much more!!! The friendly, helpful service begins right from reserving our room throughout our stay. We can tell this motel is run by family and staff who take great pride in what they do.

Vacationing down the shore does not get any better than spendng time at The Lark. This is all of the best parts of vacationing with family because even when your family is not there your "Lark" shore family is! The Lark is clean, perfectly located and our favorite summer destination. We have made life-long friends there and vacation with them... More
