Just returned and we were pleasantly surprised! We had never been so did not know what to expect. We checked in Friday night everything went perfect. We parked the car in their safe lot and did not need the car again except to drive home. This motel is in the perfect location. Close to everything! Steps from beach and boardwalk....

Stopped in for one night after a day trip to the Jersey Shore. I checked in at 3pm, and found the staff to be friendly, polite, and very efficient. I was quickly shown where to park, and then shown to my room. The room was very big, clean, and had everything we needed (AC, fridge, TV). The bed was smaller...

My room was big enough for 4 people, staff was great and welcoming, parking was a bit of an issue. Location was amazing, besides there being no pool and the door making weird noises at times, all around it was a great 3 night stay in seaside with friends and family.

Overall I was very pleased with the accommodations provided by Buoy 16. My fiancé and I were looking for a an inexpensive trip to the Jersey shore.

An ok motel if you're on a budget and just want to crash between visits to the beach. The Staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. The room was adequate in size, but only had a bed, futon, dresser and 2 floor lamps and no maid service. For a table, were brought a folding tv tray table. A desk, small table...

We stayed overnight. For a last minute booking it was a good price. The owner was very nice and on site all the time. The room was spacious and had a full size fridge. I was a little concerned that they kept my ID while we had the beach passes, although they did toss in an extra pass for my...

Clean......, for the most part. Old tattered towels, cheap everything etc. I received a lecture about partying and noise, then was escorted down a loud hallway with people clearly partying in their rooms. Not sure why people say the owners were nice. One of the brothers almost jumped the desk at check-out because I mentioned being charged for one level...

“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.”
