Stayed here because heard it was a great motel. What was truly great was the location, because literally, across the street were all the attractions of Seaside Heights! The owners to seemed to be very nice people. However the rest wasn't what we expected. The room was not very comfortable, and was pretty crammed. There was a closet that was...

The whole experience was regretted and awful. Rude service, greedy and not nice. There are so many other options, don't stay there!!!! From the moment we got there they demanded things of us, barked at us with a heavy accent of some kind, it was dirty and felt like we were not safe.

Great location - within walking distance to the boardwalk/beach. Parking included, provides discounted beach passes, owners are very friendly. The room was a good size and clean. Only complaint might be that the bed was a little uncomfortable and the showers were tiny.

Please do me a favor and take my review seriously. I benefit greatly from the reviews and want the community to get the same benefit, The service is bad, the sheets are smelly, the towels are a joke and the cherry on top is no room service. If you pay a penny more that $20 a night it's not worth...

If you are looking for luxury this is not the place but if you are looking for affordable, friendly, great location then this is a top choice. Went with my sister, my son and his girlfriend and loved the location. Right off the boardwalk near great food and games. Manager was extremely helpful and attentive. Would stay again. Only downside...

I read all the reviews about this hotel and the others in the area. Based on what we had to pick from, wanting to stay only 2 nights on the Jersey Shore, this was the best of what was available from what I read - which turned out to be true. Alex and Adam were very kind and hospitable. The...

Stayed here one night while waiting for a rental down the shore on a Friday. The key with this place is location and that is pretty much it although guys who run the front desk were pretty cool, the place needs a serious upgrade. Typical run down beach motel, dark rooms with little to no furnishings and hard mattresses. The...

My wife and I returned once again this year to a newly sided exterior of the Motel. The room we stayed in on the second floor was very quiet and extremely clean! Obviously, the location is probably the best in Seaside Heights! Those who are looking for a good time in Seaside Heights and a reasonably priced Motel must check...

“Our room opened to the street facing the boardwalk and when drunk people would be walking by at 2AM, you could hear them easily. Maybe a room facing the parking lot would be better.”
