Came here last week and had a great stay. The manager Kristin was so welcoming and accommodating. Kristin went above and beyond to make us feel welcome The Alton Motel is about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. We will definitely come back again.

The room is clean. The pool hours can be a longer. Currently, it is 10am to 7pm. The motel need to invest some money to upgrade the equipment, too. There is no wifi on second floor and above. It only cost 30 bucks to buy a long range wi-fi antenna. Why not to buy one? Microwave are old and rusty,... More

This review is very much a rarity for me, especially when it comes to mom and pop type businesses. It is not my intention to hurt the motel/business in anyway, but to maybe help them improve with my findings, and also to inform other travelers. I am not super picky, all I expect is a clean bathroom and bed; any... More

We recently changed it from two double beds, based on customer feedback. Your feedback is important to us! We immediately replaced the shower curtain and stained towels as... More

First impressions mean a lot. Bud, one of the owners, warmly welcomed us to the Alton the minute we stepped out of our car. Those lasting impressions didn't stop there. We were down the shore for a baseball tournament and we couldn't have picked a better motel. They had two bottles of water in each of our rooms with our... More

Nice small motel. Very close to the beach & walking distance to your local needs & access. Fair driving distance to other restaurants. Definitely ask about any specials before paying. Pool was nice, Billy from Philly is very helpful & friendly. Top notch service!
