“Fun, Clean, Quiet Spot, only a few blocks from the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

I was a skeptic before booking at a motel down in Seaside, since the last time I had gone was for my high school senior prom, but I am glad I chose the Sea Garden Motel. They rooms were very clean, and the cleaning staff cleaned them again every morning during our stay. The room had air conditioning, and I didn't hear a peep from any of the adjoining rooms. It was just a couple blocks away from the beach, boardwalk, and all of the bars for the young twenty's crowd. There is also a liquor store directly across the street. I do highly recommend this Motel for those considering staying overnight in seaside.

Had a nice stay! Close to everything!You can walk to beach and boardwalk!!! Rooms were clean! I liked that there was no time limit on using the pool. I do wish they had ice machines and some sort of vending machines but other than that is was a nice place to stay!

My friends and family have recently stayed in the two-bedroom apartment and motel room at the Sea Garden Motel. Both rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was incredibly nice and very unintrusive! Sea Garden is located at FANTASTIC location. Only a block to the beach and boardwalk and on the same street as the most popular bars. Absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back for more vacations!

I stayed at the Sea Garden Motel with friends 2 weekends ago... We had an apartment for the long weekend and it was the perfect stay. Everything was very clean and the apartment was a good size. Two bedrooms, small kitchen, and living room was no more than what we needed to enjoy our stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay while visiting Seaside Heights!

My friends and I stayed here in a two-bedroom apartment (Room 26) for our prom weekend. The room was big, comfortable, and pretty clean, and staff members were unintrusive and polite. This motel is very popular with teenagers going away for the weekend, so I would not recommend staying here between the months of May and June unless you're comfortable with being around potentially rowdy teenagers throwing parties in their rooms. We, however, had a great time.

PROS:
-Close to everything
-Big, clean pool (unheated)
-Big, clean two-bedroom apartments
-Polite, unintrusive staff
-Digital cable (Cablevision)

CONS
-Teenagers can get loud
-Our stove was broken
-No microwave in our room (we were able to borrow one from next door, though)
-Couldn't connect to motel's wifi from our room (luckily, there was an Optimum hotspot nearby)
-Friends who stayed in a regular motel room had a pretty run-down room with a disgusting bathroom

Room Tip: Get a two-bedroom!

I stayed here this past summer and really enjoyed the experience. The rooms were comfortable and the AC worked amazingly. The motel is 1 block away from the boardwalk which has loads of entertainment, food, and bars. The proximity to the boardwalk is what makes this place so great. The staff is awesome and always eager to help you out with whatever you need. The manager, Tom Forte, is a legend in Seaside and can assist you like a concierge to all the hot spots in town.

Had a FAB time at the Sea Garden! Big pool, walking distance to clubs and beach. Front desk was very helpful. I loved that the place looks like it was recently renovated and the bathrooms were really clean! Walked across the street and used my coupon for a free breakfast...not too shabby and one less thing to think about on a vacation. I highly recommend this motel and although I dont have children, those vacationers with children were quite satisfied as well! Plan to come back next summer!
