Location is the only thing this place has going for it.Stayed with my family for just one night bc we got a good deal on priceline. Door looked like someone tried to bust in. As soon as you open the door, the musty smell almost knocks you over. Cigarette burn holes on the sofa, and actually piles of cigarette ash...

The best thing this motel has going for it, is it's location directly across the street from the Seaside Heights NJ, boardwalk. But even with it's great location, it was overpriced. From the outside it appears to be an average picturesque older Jersey shore motel. Parking is tight and limited, although free. Once we found a good spot, we didn't...

I have stayed at many different types of hotels/motels over the years with some costing barely anything, and others costing alot. The Surfside Motel has to be the worst place I have ever stayed. Its location was the only positive thing I can write about since it is right by the boardwalk. There are soooo many reasons why not to...

My husband and I brought our daughter here for vacation. Well this is NOT a family friendly motel. While the front desk was "ok" for checking in and any questions we had they were not very observant on the activity going on outside of other guests rooms. First night we were there I was woken up every hour until 5am...

Very generous but I have nostalgic attachments to this place. There are many shady people here, I was staying below a couple who loudly fought and blared James Taylor all hours of the night. LoL. The place was outdated, tiny and kinda scary. Buuut the location is amazing. I have no idea if this is still standing after Sandy and...
