Our family has come to the Armada for the last 15 years and the accommodations are wonderful and only surpassed by the staff and the ownership of this motel. We also appreciate the consistent upgrade of the facility and everything is neat,clean and family friendly!

Hotel's Favorite
Oh, Armada By-the-Sea how do I love you? - let me count the ways! I love your location with the decks and pool always facing the sun! I love that you have a whole city block of green space as your “welcome mat!” I love that you are situated ON the ocean and all rooms are angled for a perfect ocean view! I love that you are near the boardwalk but separated. I love that each year you are “invested in” and improved upon in order to be ready for next season's guests! I love that you are well-maintained and that your staff is like family - any issue is remedied quickly. I love that you attract the best guests who are courteous and cheerful. I love that you “feel like home - but, next to the ocean.” I love that you are family-owned and treated with care since being built in 1973. I love that for 33+ years, you have given our family joy and respite - and now you will be enjoyed by our fourth generation!

I felt like I was returning home. My family stayed at Armada 5 years in a row when my children were school-age. I recently talked a couple of friends into a beach trip so that I could return and it felt like no time had passed. The room was clean and everything worked. The pool was heated and the grill was in fine shape. We all want to return next year. Actually, my friends asked me if the Armada was open all year round!

We are so happy that you have made the Armada your home and that you plan to return to see us in the future. Glad you enjoyed the pool this year. It certainly was a beautiful summer. I hate to see it end. Looking forward to seeing you next season.

My wife is terminally ill, but this trip could not have gone better. Friendly staff, nice accommodations, great weather, etc. Even the other clients were all hospitable and friendly. In order to solicit that response says something about the overall mood set forth by the hotel. Well done......
