This was a necessary stay for a business trip. The staff was friendly and accommodating however the room was outdated and in need of renovations. The chair was ripped and the toilet had different colors between the bowl and lid. Walls needed a good cleaning and paint. It was a place to lay your head after a long day. Stay...

The place was clean & the gentleman at the front desk was extremely nice but this place was totally not worth $166 a night!! Maybe $50. This motel was the only available place in the area. It's so outdated that I felt like I was stuck in a time warp. The bed were only double size (no queen) we went...

Nothing elaborate, but a decent local getaway. Right next door to Bayville amusement park, and a great tiki bar across from beach. Motel has a pretty nice pool and beach is directly across the street. Jay the owner of motel is a great guy!

It's the only motel for miles around...which is how it stays in business. Dirty, worn carpets, beat-up furniture, HVAC that doesn't work...this is your standard flophouse. Even though it takes 30+ minutes to get back to Northern Boulevard to find alternatives, it's worth the time. You should not stay here.

Is it shmancy - nooooooo But a family on a budget can grab a room here. The management is super friendly, there's a big grill pit and ample lawn space for frisbee or to throw a football. The outdoor pool was big with plenty of seating and while we were there they were upgrading the tennis court. There's an amusement...
