"The hotel was a bit pricey, but it was worth it if you like a quiet beach and pool that aren't overrun with kids. The room was clean, the service was great, and there was plenty of parking. We liked that beach towels and chairs were available for guests.2018-08-28"
"We had to wait several hours to get in my room, but the hotel clerk graciously gave us an upgrade. The room was lovely. The beach was mobbed on weekends; next time I'll go during the week.2017-07-26"
"The hotel staff was friendly, but there were only 2 sets of towels in the room. When we pulled out the sofa bed, there were socks and foot spray in the mattress folds, and the carpet underneath needed vacuuming.2018-05-03"
"Clean, quiet, comfortable room. The check-in clerk was nice, but the evening clerk was curt and not at all friendly. Good breakfast.2015-06-09"
"The motel was comfortable and safe. Excellent check-in clerk; she was knowledgeable about the surrounding area and was helpful. I recommend staying here.2015-05-11"
"The motel room was dark, and housekeeping needed to pay more attention to details. Poor water pressure in the shower. The staff was accommodating, professional, and kind. The garden was unkempt, but the lobby looked great. The pool area needed better lighting. I stayed with my husband, but would have felt unsafe by myself.2015-04-30"
"There was an odor in our room when we arrived; it got stronger and I started to feel unwell. I called the hotel clerk and the carbon monoxide alarm went off. We were moved to another room. It was OK, but the people in the next room were noisy. Good staff and breakfast.2018-10-15"

"We had a wonderful experience. The hotel was close to downtown and a 15-minute walk to the Broadwalk pedestrian plaza with lots of restaurants and shops. Far from the beach, but accessible by car. We brought our bikes, and it was about a 35-minute ride to Sea Bright Beach.2021-07-08"
"The hotel room was small.2018-04-16"
"We really liked this hotel. Wish the room had been a bit bigger, but we only stayed one night. Ask for a room with a view.2015-06-23"
"Not a bad hotel for the price. Right on the shore, with easy access to beaches and the boardwalk. No coffee maker in the hotel room. Pleasant employees, but service was mediocre. Nice indoor pool.2016-08-14"
"Everything was great. The room was clean and well-appointed and had all the amenities I needed. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nice and roomy. The ironing board, iron, and alarm clock were a nice touch. I made full use of the kitchen and was very satisfied. Easy access to the rooms from side entrances, and there was ample parking. I had a 5-star experience. Just remember that you have to request and pay for housekeeping service.2017-06-20"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
