Boardwalk Hotel Charlee & Apartments
Ranked #25 of 39 Hotels in Seaside Heights
Reviewed June 1, 2011

Boardwalk Seaport Inn is hands-down the best place to stay at while visiting Seaside Heights, NJ. This is my second year vacationing in Seaside Heights for Memorial Day Weekend, and I was overly satisfied with this years accommodations. The previous year (2010) I lodged at the Hershey Motel, which was further inland and more expensive. This year, after careful research, my party and I decided that this location was the best deal. Our recent trip affirmed and solidified our opinion of the place.

Boardwalk Seaport Inn is also in a fabulous location. It is right on the boardwalk but away from all of the commotion, as it is on one end of the boardwalk. It also has a third floor roof balcony open to all residents that overlooks the ocean and provides a fun place to hang out with friends.

An unexpected plus at Boardwalk Seaport Inn is their helpful and personable staff. From the planning stages of our trip they were very gracious in answering all of our questions. Throughout the weekend our manager Ziko spent time with us, whether getting to know our friends or telling us about himself. However, our manager did not only take a liking to our room, but many. Throughout the weekend I saw him interacting with all his clients. This of course was completely unnecessary, but an additive to our trip. His kindness came off as genuine, instead of strictly business. The friendly staff extended beyond the manager. The security guard was also great company, while very understanding of our needs. I must have had about 20 requests or more over the course of 4 days, whether it be more toilet paper or even dish soap, and our manager and staff complied faster than google can turn up search results.

This motel is definitely one of the nicest (if not the nicest in the area) with an incredible staff. Every dollar was well spent when considering the location, room accommodations, and staff.

If I ever need to stay for the night in Seaside Heights, I will never consider looking into another place because this is truly the best bargain. In fact, my friends and I are already planning another trip back to the hotel in the coming months!

A group of us stayed for memorial day weekend! It was the best room I've ever stayed in! The people working were very kind and accommodating and made sure we were comfortable at all times! The room was very big and clean and the beds were very comfy also :) I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to stay in seaside!

This motel is right on the boardwalk, it has an awesome view, a cool roof deck, but what is really outstanding is their staff! If you are kind and courteous to them, you will get the same respect back and then some!

My husband and I stayed there this weekend on a mini honeymoon, and the staff were so kind to us.

We had a very serious incident that happened in town, and they did more than you would excpect to accomadate our needs, they went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of.

I would highly recommend any of my family and friends to stay here, it's nice to know that there are still kind people out there.

Zeeko (sorry if i spelled your name wrong), we will never ever forget how much you helped us and next time we go to seaside we will definitely come back and stay at the boardwalk seaport inn.

If you are there for the ocean, its your safest bet for excellent service, best location, and great value. Easy in and out to your car, to the boardwalk and straight to the beach. Staff is available at all times if you need so much as a towel and they keep an eye on everything with security cameras including the free parking area. Their kindness has been priceless as I go there alone with a special needs child. Also, this is an excellent location if you want to catch a glimpse of the MTV Jersey Shore crew. Location is well-managed by local security as well. Motels are not meant to be fancy, so talk to the staff in advance and arrive with appropriate expectations. I've been all over the country, all over Seaside Heights and I say it's plenty clean enough for a beach trip

I stayed there on 4th of July weekend. The location was amazing right on the boardwalk. And there they have this deck on the third floor for all the guest to use. Came in handy to relax and also when there were a sea of people were on the boardwalk to watch the fireworks. I had quite a good experience.
The rooms were pretty good compared other years I stayed in seaside. The price was satisfactory compared to the quality. I was not displeased with my stay at all.
Oh let me add, they offered me free beach passes and I opted for the breakfast package which gave me breakfast At the cafe in front of the hotel. Service was good, the manager was very nice!
