Older hotel really needs to be updated but all in all very nice and quite and right on the beach. The owners are so nice and helpful. The little place to eat attached to eat to the hotel is so good and prices are great. Can't wait to stay there next year.

Booked an room here for a long weekend and could not have been more delighted. The location is great, right on the beach and close to local attractions. There is a heated pool on site along with a separate area for barbecuing. There is a terrific little restaurant that does breakfast and lunch, perfect for getting to the beach quickly.... More

I do not understand the "bad reviews" on this place and believe me, I read them all before, during and after booking. Spent this past weekend with family - two first floor poolside rooms. Check in was fast and friendly. Rooms were clean, there were actual blankets on the beds and not just the bed cover there usually is and... More

We decided to stay at this motel for a long weekend so we could visit relatives. I don't know where to begin but this Motel has not been updated since it was built, which I would assume was in the 1950's, judging the decor. For the price paid I would expect that they could make improvements on a consistent basis.... More

We get there on a Friday, it's already a party motel from the noise. We go to get in bed that night and the couch pull out was soaking wet. They use Fabuloso cleaning product that reeks of cheapness. I slept on he floor because there was no one there to fix the problem. I do not recommend this motel... More

We have been coming to the Jersey shore for 35 years. Beach is the best. First time at this motel. Front desk staff very nice but that's as far as it goes. Motel is very out dated. If you stay on street side of motel, have to walk up ramp through a walkway up on flight of stairs through another... More

This was our second stay and we look forward to inviting multiple families next year. Harold and his family run a spotless, attentive and beautiful "piece of paradise". Their housekeeping staff is impeccable. If a "throw back", fantastic beach placement location is what you want this is it! yes its literally brick and mortar, ran on honor system. (Harrold doesn't...

Our room was clean. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and even though it was only for 3 days it was a very pleasant stay. The cafe was next to our room and the food was delicious, great for a quick breakfast. I will recommend the villa nova to friends and family.

This was our first visit to this motel. We have been to many motels in the crest and decided to try this one for the retro feel. The first 2 days we were ther were great!! Great location right on the beach clean pool quiet and family oriented atmosphere. Then it all changed on Friday night. A large group having... More

After reading multiple reviews and doing some research we chose this "resort" because it was a little more pricey and the reviews looked promising. Boy were we wrong about that. We arrived late in the evening after the office had closed, but were left the keys in the room. Upon opening the door the stench of staleness and mold hit... More
