I hate to say it because I want to keep it a secret but the owners were very gracious, the property clean and well kept, room clean and breakfast adequate.

I first came to this Super 8 with my sister several years ago and after our great experience, I have come back every year with my husband and sometimes with our son. The owners have always recognized us since the stay with my sister. That is great customer service in my book! We always get a "Hello! Welcome back, how have you been?" when we check in. They are the nicest people. I will not stay anywhere else. The rooms are clean and somewhat updated, the beds are comfortable and there are good amenities with the microwave, refrigerator and flat screen tv (I think we must have had the same room as the previous reviewer that had the tv with the bad speakers, thought that was funny. We also did not care as we didn't watch much tv on our visit). The parking is tight but I have never had an issue and the owners are really good about making sure only guests are parking in the lot. We love that we can walk to the Boardwalk, some nearby restaurants and the pier. We visited over Memorial Day Weekend this year and we really appreciated the fact we didn't have to drive in the awful traffic around the Boardwalk. We have never been bothered in our room by the traffic outside but we usually have the AC on. The Wilfongs

Only stayed one night. The rooms are tiny and old. The bathroom scary. Beds were ok comfortable but bedding horrid. Beds so close to the window and door, felt a little unsafe. Pay a few dollars more people and upgrade.

One of the best motels I've stayed at. Amazing, friendly service. Rooms and facilities were very good (considering it's a motel for less than US$100 a night). Also good: it's a very short walk to the Boardwalk and not far from the action of Pacific Ave. 

Pros
Clean
Great service
Location
Love the breakfast waffle machine

Cons
It's a Super 8

This super 8 was like no other I've visited. The owners were loverly and welcoming when we checked in, provided lots of information about the area including attractions, dining and directions! The room was spacious, clean & comfortable! There was adequate supplies including toiletries, a fridge and microwave! They also provided a nice range of breakfast snacks from pastries, toast, cereal, waffles, and a good choice of drinks! The hotel is a stone throw from the boardwalk & a short 10 minute walk to the town. It was one of the cheapest hotels we could find & it was worth every penny! The owners also said goodbye personally remembering previous conversations from the day before! Thank you!
