We booked a room at the last minute at the Jersey Shore over the weekend. Glad that the Mayfair still had a room since it's currently summer peak. Sure it feels like its the 1920s there and the room is nothing to shout about. However, it's beach front with coffee shops within walking distance. The staff is friendly and even... More

This is most definitely a place to be if you're strictly looking for somewhere to shower and sleep. I stayed here for Labor Day weekend, initially walking in I realized how outdated and awfully decorated the place was. Rugs, decorations, everything was old. The double bed room I stayed in was very small and the shower was not in it's... More

This hotel has the flavor of the 1920's decor. Obviously needs upgrading, but savings on upgrading keeps their prices very reasonable. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and the location with a view of the boardwalk and ocean were excellent.

I am currently staying at the Mayfair and can honestly say that THIS is the real Jersey shore. We have a small eclectically decorated room with the unique quirks that make it a true one of a kind, take a step back in time experience. If you are looking for the cookie cutter sterile atmosphere of a chain hotel, then... More

I am shocked by some of these reviews because I found this place to be fabulous. I travel almost 40% of the time for work and have stayed in so many sorts of places, and this really is up there as one of the best. It has personality and charm. My room was very clean, had a fabulous view of... More

I know it is an old building but cleanness is all about cleanness. Hotel was ok except for the insects. I rented a room couple days ago and I found a cockroach in the bathroom. My room has the sink inside the bedroom next to the bed and there was another cockroach walking around the sink as well. Would never... More

It is not a luxury hotel, but the pool is awesome and the location is superb. It is so cheap I hope other people don't find out about this place! Very quirky, the view from the room was awesome right on the beach.

Accessible by the NJ transit train from Penn Station, a short walk brings you to a friendly oceanfront hotel quite reasonable, clean, quiet where the ocean breezes dance across the large lobby. great place for writers to sit and do their thing, the lobby expands into another huge room which one time was a ballroom, now a sitting room with...

Me and my husband was being spontaneous and drove to the area on a Saturday, we liked the area so much and decided ti stay for the night. The hotel had an old school look to it, so we chose to experiment for one night. Shame on us for doing it without planning. Sure it's cheaper, but we got what... More

I first stayed at the Mayfair back in the late 60s and early 70s.. this is not the Sheraton....It's better. If you want the old Jersey shore, this is the place. Some weird old architecture. Built in the 20s and hasn't changed. Woody Allen would love this place. If your looking for the old Jersey shore flavor, this is it.... More
