We stayed at the Coral Seas in August of 2013. It was in the best location on the Island in Beach Haven, and the entrance to the beach was 20 feet from the motel. We booked a standard room with 2 double beds. There was a mini-fridge in the room as well as a coffee maker. They also provide Wi-Fi at the motel and the connection was strong. If you need a blow dryer, just ask at the reception and you can borrow one. We had a parking spot for the duration of our stay, although the lot was pretty full. Reception was very friendly, the rooms were impeccably clean, the beds were on the firm side but comfortable, and the pool was in the sun all day and very relaxing. While I would describe the decor in the rooms as dated, we aren't so picky about looks as long as everything is clean. Also the air conditioner in the room was very old, but it worked just fine. At night we slept well, didn't hear the neighbors at all even though the entire motel was full. This is more of a quiet family place, so if you are looking to party and be loud in the evenings this is not your motel. Each room had two lawn chairs outside of the room door under the covered porch/walkway. Everyone left their towels on the railing or suit etc. to dry overnight. There was also space there to leave your beach chairs/boogie boards etc. so you didn't get sand in your room. If your a smoker, there is no smoking in the rooms but you can sit outside the room on the lawn chairs. Also in the pool area, there were some round tables with umbrellas, which were nice for when we ate at the motel since there is no real table to eat at in the room. The pool was open from about 9-7pm if I remember correctly. Really the only negative thing I could think to say about Coral Seas, is that the pillows were not as fluffy as I like. Also the smoke detector was removed from our room, not sure why. But really there is nothing bad about this motel! I highly recommend it! Also the room price was right on or a little bit less than other motels/hotels on LBI, although it is not cheap to stay anywhere on this Island.
