This was the most pleasant motel I've stayed at while down the shore. The staff is incredibly friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location comes with a great view and all this for a price that can't be beat. Highly recommend

We recently stayed at Ocean court by the sea at long branch. The place was great: affordable, literally right on the beach, we just took our towels and went directly to the beach. The kitchen was newly renovated. And the price is very affordable. So conveniently located next to the boardwalk where all of the restaurants and shopping are. Would...

When i first walked in I felt like I was at home. The staff was pleasant and very accommodating. Just a few steps from the office, I found my room and was proud of myself for making a great decision. The rooms seem newly renovated and well-maintained. The kitchen was a convenience I could not find anywhere else in the...

New management must have addressed the pevious concerns. I really wasn't sure WHAT to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at my room on the upper level. Bed linens were clean and crisp and bathrooms were spotless. GREAT LOCATION! Will definitely come back again.

The bed sheets were black and stinky and you couldn't tell if they were clean or dirty since the whole room was stinky. Floor was very sandy and I could hear electrical buzzing. They said there was an electrician working the next day on the electrical features of the motel. It was a great location but a bad hotel. The...

I booked this room since we had to stay up in the area for Indoor competition. After booking it, I was some pics that didn't show it in its best light. My husband and I were quite surprised when the manager (who came off as being a little on the grumpy side when I called) ended up being very pleasant...

Choose hotel based on kitchen and destination. No equipment in kitchen (ie: coffee cups/ plates/ knives). Sheets literally had stains on them (you know what I'm talking about), management was unhelpful and the office smells like an ashtray.

It was terrible. The room was not clean, broken furniture. Window pan broken, closet door, drawers, storm door, tile in bathroom, mold on refrigerator, mold on shower curtain and tile in tub. The owner was rude when I addressed the problems and wanted to leave. There was also very loud music in the next room.
