Enjoyed ourselves.First time staying here.We usually stay at The Best Western Hotel in Pleasantville N.J. but decided to try this one this time and we had a wonderful experence.Will be staying again. We enjoyed the service and the location is great.Short drive to Mill Road which takes you to The Shore Mall for shopping and food.Or short drive to Route 9 which takes you over to Ocean City and also a short trip to Atlantic City N J

This is the place to rest at night. It was clean and the staff very friendly. Our room had a Jacuzzi at a very reasonable rate. Nice hot breakfast. The atmosphere is a whole lot better than about 4 years ago-staff much nicer/friendlier. We will go back next time we are in New Jersey.

We recently took our family to see a concert at the Borgata. Well the weekend prices at the hotels in Atlantic City were very expensive. So, we choose this motel in Absecon, NJ. All we needed was a clean place to shower and sleep for one night. The room and bathroom were cleaner than expected. The bedding was pretty nice, and the beds where comfortable and clean. (I always pull up the corner of the bedding to see what's under there, and the mattress looked new, and there wasn't a spot of anything on it.) The breakfast was good. Which included scrambled eggs, sausage, make your own waffles, and cereals etc.

Basic bare bones roadside motel. Looks like it has recently received a fresh coat of paint both inside and out, and a basic interior freshening. It's an old building providing basic accomodations, but it is very clean and gets the job done. Mattress felt new and was very comfortable. Pink bathroom tile was dated but was very clean. Breakfast was disappointing but I think I was one of like five guests staying in the hotel that night, so I understand them wanting to not waste warm food. I would imagine that during tourist season breakfast is better.

For the money you can't beat this motel. It was clean and quiet. Manager was very nice. Everything was in working order. Convenient location, and easily had food delivered. Very close to Atlantic City. Would definitely stay there again. Had upstairs room- felt safe.

I stayed here for two weekdays last summer just initially for an overnight getaway and ended up staying an extra night. Thankfully there were no issues adding on the second night. We chose this hotel because of it's low price and the close driving distance to all of our favorite Jersey Shore spots. The "cheap" hotel we usually stay in (Budget Inn in Somers Point) was booked that week and after this good experience we might change our go-to hotel to this one. Unlike the Budget Inn, this hotel did NOT smell like smoke, and the typical musty (moldy?), ocean scent was not too bad (it's the shore- it should be expected). The room was spacious, even with the large bed, dresser with TV, and small table, there was more than enough room to do some in-room exercising! I took advantage of the tub and took a relaxing bath, but did not have enough time to check out the pool. The continental breakfast was actually pretty good (for being free), and had assorted breakfast breads, meat, fresh make-your-own WAFFLES!, and some questionable scrambled eggs. We stayed in a corner room, facing the highway, and it was very quiet and peaceful. So, this hotel was not luxurious, but I would definitely recommend it for someone who would rather use their money on a nice dinner out or a day on the boardwalk than for luxury accommodations.

The hotel was clean and nicely kept up. We stayed there on NYE. It was a lot cheaper than the Atlantic City casino hotels and only 15 minutes away! I believe they ran a shuttle as well, but we choose to drive. I would love to stay there again. The staff is impeccable and very nice!
