“Perfect for a family on a tight budget”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Coral Sands. Our priorities as a family of 7 were all about fun, convenience, and affordability and we rented the large room with 3 double beds (one kid on the floor in a sleeping bag). It was difficult for us to find a place our family could stay together without spending a fortune, so we are excited to find the Coral Sands and plan to come back. The microwave and fridge in the room were very convenient, and we brought our coffee pot, so we also saved money 'eating in' some of the meals. The restaurant on premises was also wonderful. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, excellent room service, and clean and functional accomodations. If you are looking for everything to be shiny, new, and modern, this is not your place. But if you need a place with a quiet, family feel and comfortable facilities, this is a great value.

I really like the Coral Sands. It's got a real 'old Ocean City' feel to it, The rooms are small, and dated in their layout due to the age of the hotel, but i liked it, it has lots of personality. My wife thought it was more shabby than chic, but i disagree. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable, and what else do you want from a hotel? The staff was very friendly and helpful, and you just can't beat the location! Steps to the boardwalk right on 9th, and easy walking to everything. We can't wait to go back this fall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs if you're staying long, the upper veranda is excellent for sitting and e...

The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Great location. A block and a half from the boardwalk. And the the restaurant next door is very convenient. Can't wait to go back.

We have been visitors to Ocean City, New Jersey for many decades...this hotel has a great location and friendly staff...the two double beds were very comfortable considering our spine and back issues...these issues limited our mobility so being on 9th street and a 1/2 block from the beach put you right in the middle of the boardwalk making small trips in each direction manageable...the amenities of a refrigerator and microwave were a plus...free parking, beach tags and a restaurant on property made the visit memorable.

We have stayed at this motel a few times. Winter, spring, and fall. Wish they were still open in winter for New Years! Our stay has always been comfortable and enjoyable. Parking can be a little tough, but no reason not to stay there. So close to boardwalk but away from the BW noise. Will always go back to the Coral Sands!

Good location. Parking spot depends when you check in. Careless owner. Dirty shower and toilet with mold. Ac and refrigerator were useless. Room didn't get cool and fridge didn't close all the way due to worn out rubber along door. It was cooler outside at night.

jbpetrov, Manager at Coral Sands, responded to this review, July 26, 2013
our parking is not first come first served everyone has a parking space, some are rented from the city and we keep a record and assign rooms to that lot. But sometimes as people will see an empty spot from someone who went to dinner and will pull over, thus taking 2 spots. The air conditioner and refrigerators work fine, when the door is kept closed and also the racks were taken out and put in backwards in refrigerator causing the door not to close. If they would have come to office with these complaints we would have immediately handled the situation by sending the maintenance man up to the room who would have seen the shelves. As for the showers our bases are worn and old but are clean. They are also under contract to be refinished when Motel closes for the winter. These issues could have been handled by the customer better if they would have informed us immediately. We cannot fix what we do not know about.
