I have stayed at this motel 3 times now with my son, daughter and 2 grand daughters and definitely plan to go back. It is a no frills hotel but the rooms are clean, there is a steps-away private beach and everyone there is very friendly and helpful. We had a 2.5 room efficiency which was perfectly adequate for the...

We stayed in the efficiency room which was as advertised. Queen size bed, tv, mini-fridge and bathroom. Great setup if you plan on spending most of your time on the beach which is exactly what we did. Friendly staff, close walking distance to the beach and plenty of restaurants made this an enjoyable visit.

Great location and nice beach! Staff was friendly and helpful. But, sofa bed the worst. All mattresses old. Hole punched bedroom door. Bathroom from 1960's. Needs major renovation! Want to come back and invite friends, but cannot sleep on those beds!

We stayed here just before rates got raised for the summer season. We had the PH suite on the side of the building but still had a wonderful view of the ocean! The rooms here are a bit outdated and could use some renovation but we were fine and comfortable. Our PH had a full kitchen and refrigerator so we...

I can't tell you how old the mattresses are, so old my daughter refused to sleep on it without a beach towel on top, they were very dirty and disgusting. It is sad that this could be a top rate motel but they refuse to pay for any renovations. the carpets are filthy, the bathroom had hair all over it...

My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago. It was last minute so we could not get top floor suite with balcony. Even though it is not a luxury hotel, it was one of our favorite trips ever. Steps from private beach, next to island beach state park. Bars and restaurants right across the street. If you...

My husband and I are fans of visiting the shore in the off season. Less crowded. Prices are much better. We've stayed at this hotel many times, and will continue to do so. It is clean, the people who run are are extremely friendly and accommodating, and they have a private beach. Dawn works in the office and is very...

It was ok! Room was clean and comfortable! Parking and access to the rooms is not the best, if it were busy it would be a real mess. It was said it was a private beach but every time I tried to go fishing there were so many locals parked on the street end and on the beach fishing I...

I've stayed at this motel many times. If you're looking for a 4 star motel, this isn't the one. However, consider these points: 1. This motel is right on the beach - a few steps to a private beach with an unobstructed view of Island Beach State Park. 2. This motel is clean. You never get the usual damp and...
