Truly a hidden gem in a quiet NJ beach town. I found this motel on line based on the one review from Tripadvisor.com and reached out to the owner. A prompt return call, and I was able to book the weekend I had selected. Upon arrival the motel was exactly as pictured on line. Joe Clarke was expecting us and check in was a breeze. Our room was exactly as we had discussed during the reservation and was even cuter in person. The room was cool on a hot summer day with a window a/c unit and beautifully appointed with simple bedding. We had the use of a good sized fridge and a coffee maker. The bathroom was clean, mold free and everything worked perfectly. Towels were plush and not wreaking of bleach and there was always plenty of soap and shampoo. There is an ice vendor and beverage machine available 24 hours and an open out door shower is available should one need to wash sand off before heading into the room.
It was a wonderful three night stay less than 2 blocks walk to the beach and in close proximity to everything from bagels to rental bikes and seafood in between. We really didnt want to leave.
Joe and his wife are wonderful people willing to go the extra mile to service their guests and offer suggestions for anything and everything. They are around daily and present on the property.
Even if we didnt have great weather (but it was sunny all three days) the stay would have been just as nice and comfortable in this sweet motel with wonderful rates even in season.
I highly recommend a stay if you are planning to be in the area or looking for a relaxing quiet get away to the sugar sandy beaches (yes they exist) of NJ.
