“A Nice Inn for a Family Vacation”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

The room we were staying in was one of the smaller ones thye offer but I cannot complain as I knew beforehand the size. I would recommend getting one of the larger rooms if given the choice.
Items to Note:
The web site coule be updated with some key things. They do not supply a hair dryer, alarm clock or shampoo. We usually bring our own shampoo but did not think about a hair dryer. Not worried about the alarm clock as we were on vacation and not in a hurry to get up in the morning.

The Good:
The room was clean and the beds are sturdy with newer pillows. We enjoyed the pool, which was never over crowded.
The Inn is right across from the beach, though it is a long beach to get to the Ocean.
The sun deck was great. Everynight we were on the sun deck with a small snack enjoying the warm breeze and recapping our adventures from the day.
The staff was great.

I would recommend the Alante Motor Inn but would give some heads up what you may have to bring along.

We've been staying at the Alante for about ten years. We have four children who are in their teens now, but they were very young when we started vacationing there. The location is very convenient. Situated right across the street from the ocean makes it easy to spend the entire day at the beach without having to pack lunches as it is simple enough to cross the street to eat lunch, use your own bathroom or take a quick dip in the pool. The beach itself is long enough for us to enjoy but not too long to be an inconvenience to walk across the street. The motel is about eight to ten short blocks from the boardwalk, so we always have "the best of both worlds.". We enjoy the quiet, peaceful evenings at the motel, and if we want some entertainment, we're only a short distance from the boardwalk. As our kids grew old enough, the location became even more convenient because they are able to walk to the boardwalk easily enough without having to use the car and without us having to wonder exactly where they are. Several blocks in the opposite direction is a baseball field with a basketball court, so our sons and the other boys we vacation with enjoy playing basketball and then returning to the Alante for a quick dip in the pool. The Alante is also only a short block away from Russo's deli/mani-mart. The food there is great and easily accessible. There is an ice cream parlor within a short walking distance. There is always something for them to do. We stay at the Alante for a week or two at a time, with about five or six other families, so besides all the conveniences listed above, we enjoy everyone's company. At the end of each beach day, we all relax and enjoy each other's company at the pool. At night, we all unwind on chaise lounges which are located on the upper deck. Although there are very few negative reviews about the Alante, I hesitate to take them seriously. Our family and all the other families that we vacation with have been staying there for at least ten years and would not return year after year if we had problems or complaints. it is true that the motel could use some updates with regard to such things as furniture, bathrooms and drapery, however, it is clean and efficient and not run down. There is a washer and dryer available for use. There are two barbecue grills available for use also. For those of you who have small children, there are some outdoor toys. As far as parking is concerned, each room comes with a parking spot. Now that our children are older (and bigger), we take two cars but it is easy enough to park our second car a block or two away and we do not have to pay a meter and we are not inconvenienced by having to wake up early to move it. Since we've been staying there for many years, we've developed a comfortable and friendly relationship with Margherite. The Alante has become a fond childhood memory for all four of our children. I have recommended the Alante to other friends and will continue to do so. If you are expecting your experience to be comparable to that of the Trump Hotels, then go stay at the Trump Hotels. I and my family are comfortable at the Alante.

I spent 5 days at the Alante with my girlfriend and we had a blast during the Irish Fall Festival. The Inn is right on the ocean and a nice distance from a lot of local establishments such as Flip Flopz and Keenan's. Many of the rooms have a great view of the ocean and there is a nice, clean pool in the middle of the inn. The rooms have everything you need in the kitchen and they keep the place very very clean. The staff are very pleasant people to deal with and they made our stay even better. I would recommend this place to anyone, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Marguerrite and her staff can't do enough to make sure your stay is pleasant and memorable. Our room was huge and clean, bed was very comfy and the view .... the view out the window was nothing but awesome because all I saw was the ocean. Sunrise was glorious!! Chairs out front of our room was perfect for taking in not only the ocean view but the cool breezes from the ocean too. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone who is looking for not only a great place to relax and soak up the view but to have a staff that takes care of your every need!!

My girlfriend and I have stayed at the Alante several times. We have always been more than satisfied with our visits. The rooms are comfortable and clean while containing everything you might need during your stay. Our last stay was in room 210 and it was outstanding. You are right across the street from the beach so you can unwind outside your room with a great view of the ocean. The swimming pool is a great alternative to the beach and refreshing after a hot day on the beach. The owner is on site and it shows in the level of service. After owing the hotel for close to 20 years they have built a loyal following who return over and over again. We were treated like family the first time we stayed there and have become faithful and loyal guests.Thanks Alante and we will see you soon!
