Seaside Beach House
Ranked #11 of 39 Hotels in Seaside Heights
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I just got back from Seaside Beach House. It is literally that- a house, that was converted to accommodate guests. I only needed a place to crash with my boyfriend for the night. Every other place wanted $150 and up for a room. I stayed here for $75 plus tax. The room had a full size bed, dresser, small TV, small fridge and an air conditioner. You shared a bathroom and a shower room and also a common living room area, a common kitchen area to cook in and an outside deck with a grill with about 3 other rooms. The room was clean enough, no awards but I didn't feel icked out either. It was like a hostel more than a "motel". There are other rooms with a private bath.
I probably wouldn't want to spend my "vacation" there, but since it takes me 2 hours to get there, I like to make a short trip out of the beach. It's right in the middle of Seaside Park nightlife (not that happening) and the boardwalk area. Not my favorite things, but right down the road is Island Beach State Park, the gem of the Jersey Shore. Just make sure there are no flies on the beach (west wind) if you go there!

I've been coming to the shore longer than I can remember. My (now) wife, our bridal party and I were coming there for a nice getaway before the wedding. We reserved the room a few weeks ahead of time, but once we got there we were informed they were actually double booked for the suite we reserved. No big deal, they had a property right across the street they were able to rent to us for only a couple dollars more.

It was actually a fantastic condo on the third floor. From the deck you could get a nice view of Funtown Pier (come back in 2014!!!), the boardwalk and ocean. If you turned your head the other way, you could see and hear Karma and Babmoo. Steve and JoAnn were extremely friendly and gracious hosts.

Our place to stay was modern, clean and the beds were super comfortable. You couldn't beat the price either. Some folks will complain about either and honestly, if that's the case, Seaside Heights isn't for them. We had a great time and my best man even shared a very funny (and kinda embarrassing) story from our stay.
I would absolutely stay here again in a heartbeat!

I found their bare bones website and their rates seemed attractive. Since there was no way to reserve online, I called and spoke to Steve (co-owner). I asked for one of the $50 rooms for the night of July 2, 2012 (Monday night) and when told I would have to share a bathroom with other rooms, he offered an efficiency with private bath for $75 per night. I told him I would call back to reserve. When I called back, Joanne (his wife) answered and when I told her I wanted to reserve the $75 room for 1 night, she said he was mistaken and she would check with him and call back the next day. When she didn't call back the next day, I called them. She said that it was probably $75 PER PERSON (4 people) and since it was a holiday week it was a 3-4 night minimum. Nowhere on their website (as of 6/28/12) did it say 'per person' or holiday rates or x-number minimum night stay - just daily rates. Needless to say, I declined.Totally misleading. Can you say 'gougers'?

This place is terrible. It is by far, the worst place I have ever stayed. Six of us got crammed into a basement when we were promised a loft. The basement looked and smelled like it hadn't seen the light of days in years. The moisture in the air and sheets made the entire room moist, and musty. The shower floor was moldy. Our fridge did not work at all, it was room temperature. We did not get the microwave we were promised, nor washer and dryer access. This place was not made to accommodate six people, let alone have humans in it at all. Waste of money, averaging to over $200 a night. Oh yeah, and the stove did not work at all either.

I encountered the same thing as Ms Jersey. I never even stayed at this beach house, I called to get prices for two nights and all I could hear was a guy yelling in the back round and the guy that answered thr phone ( Steve ) kept telling him to be quiet and then had to repeat to me what I could not hear. This guy Steve said the the guy yelling in a much lower voice to "be quiet I'm still on the phone" not sure what was going on at this beach house. I also asked him if the beach badges were included like many of the other hotels and he said he is hoping to get them next week I called on July 17 2010 the season is half over already. Glad I'm not staying here!!!
