I checked in on July 31, 2021. Im a truck driver so I been driving all day. They had Availability. The charge was $88 for one night. Not bad. I was given room 116. When I walk in I was disgusted. The room had urine stains on the sheets. The bathroom was nasty. Not my kinda hotel.. I went to the front and told the gentleman that the room was not liveable and nasty. He gave me room 120. This time the bathroom had hair in the shower. I took a shower. I was about to lay in the bed and saw hair on both beds. There was several stains on the bed. The room had holes in the wall. It looked like someone dig their nose and smeared it in the wall. I have pics of these nasty rooms. Don't stay here. I think the delete all the bad reviews because i looked at the reviews before I stayed here and the are misleading. Nasty rooms. This place needs to be shut down. Everyone is afraid of covid and to come to a dirty hotel is unheard of. This is a shame. I hate I came here.

DO NOT GO! I went to South Amboy for my job and decided not to go back to south jersey . The staff was kind enough to give me an extra hour in the room but then I WOKE UP TO A BABY ROACH !! On my bed. Guy would not refund my money , very argumentative and rude ! I didn’t complain about the heat being broken in the room . But after sleeping with a rodent I ask for half of my money back and he refused . He lucky I ain’t destroy the property!

I was there one night and one too much. service is not nice. let's start with the fact that the service asked me to give me a credit card password to pay for the room. I did not give the password to the card so the service was very unhappy. I paid in cash. only then did I get the keys around the room. the room was smelly of vomit and cigarettes. I found someone's hair on the pillow. I went to the front desk asking for a room exchange. the service laughed and said that I chose the cheapest room so it does not guarantee the freshness of the room. for 5$I can increase the standard of the room and there is no way to return the money

I was severely bitten by bed bugs. This place is a dump. I should have read the previous review. They had disgusting mattresses,and comforters. No hand towels or bath mats. The bath towels are old and they obviously don't use bleach or softner. We left early and demanded a refund for the day we did not use.

I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in more than my fair share of hotels/motels up and down the eastern seaboard. Circle Motor Lodge, by far is THE WORST I've ever had the displeasure of having stayed. Rooms are filthy (my room had a stained blanket...any by "stained" I mean, fresh with someone else's bodily fluids). Cleaning staff is a joke. The night manager has a VERY BAD attitude and this place also offers "hourly" rates. You can therefore imagine some of the people who hang out there. Book a room at your own risk, but don't say I didn't warn you!
