Nothing elaborate, but a decent local getaway. Right next door to Bayville amusement park, and a great tiki bar across from beach. Motel has a pretty nice pool and beach is directly across the street. Jay the owner of motel is a great guy!

It's the only motel for miles around...which is how it stays in business. Dirty, worn carpets, beat-up furniture, HVAC that doesn't work...this is your standard flophouse. Even though it takes 30+ minutes to get back to Northern Boulevard to find alternatives, it's worth the time. You should not stay here.

Is it shmancy - nooooooo But a family on a budget can grab a room here. The management is super friendly, there's a big grill pit and ample lawn space for frisbee or to throw a football. The outdoor pool was big with plenty of seating and while we were there they were upgrading the tennis court. There's an amusement... More

I was in town for my 50th high school reunion, so The Tides and all the beach attractions nearby have a place in my heart (not that I ever stayed there before :) ). I booked one of the smallest rooms which nevertheless had a small refrigerator in it, a nice touch (no coffee maker though).The clerk who checked me... More

It was Columbus Day weekend and everything was booked and ridiculously priced over $900!! When we walked in the place was nice clean and the staff was very friendly...... More

doesn't see the need to renovate. Not sure if I should review rooms first or the amenities. As far as the rooms are concerned they are all dated, the early 90's would be apropo. The beds are uncomfortable, old and squeaky. The linens are also old and used. The furniture and decor are in similar condition. No coffee machine, iron... More
