"There were cobwebs in the room, the pillowcase was stained, and there was a blood spot on the bedsheet. People smoked marijuana outside. The grass needed mowing and had mushrooms in it. Don't stay at this motel.2020-09-08"
"Easy to access from the Garden State Parkway. The motel room was clean but small, and the only chair was at the desk. The bed was too soft, and I had to go to the front desk for 2 extra pillows so I could sit comfortably and watch TV. The bathroom was large. Only 2 towels and washcloths provided, and only one hand towel. A few more would have been appreciated. Nice front desk clerk. Not a bad place for a one-night stay.2019-12-14"

"The motel was close to restaurants. Don't expect any frills. It's just a bed for the night.2019-05-28"
"This hotel was less than desirable. The room and bedding were clean, but the decor was outdated. I was surprised by the flies, the rust in the microwave, and the lack of porcelain on the bathtub. The check-in clerk was respectful, welcoming, and helpful, but the computer system was slow.2016-07-31"
"Great staff, but this hotel needs some serious remodeling. Not worth the price. The pool and deck were small.2016-06-27"
"Everything about this hotel was great, and all the employees were super nice and helpful. Stay here for a stress-free vacation.2019-11-11"
"The bathroom doors were filthy. We were on the 3rd floor, and the elevator was out of order in the morning; there was a sign saying use elevator 3, but no indication of where it was. I have to use oxygen, and it was a struggle going down the stairs with my luggage. The hotel manager was rude when I complained. No breakfast provided. Don't stay here.2017-11-24"

"The hotel was clean, comfortable, and pleasant, and it was close to the beach. The staff was friendly. The only issue was the parking, but there was a complimentary valet service that we didn't need. I'd stay here again.2019-01-06"
"Close enough to stores and the beach. The motel room was clean and quaint, and had useful amenities. It was bright, airy, and beautifully decorated. We cooked meals in the adorable kitchenette, which was quite functional. The TV didn't work until we changed the channel to 3. Great water pressure in the shower, but I didn't like the small, minty toiletries. The one restaurant nearby was a bit pricey. We had a pleasant stay.2016-04-03"
"Walk to everything. The hotel and staff were wonderful. The suite was pleasant, clean, and nicely furnished, and I loved the view of the ocean from the balcony. The only negative was that the AC didn't work, but it wasn't a problem due to the cooler weather. I definitely recommend staying here.2016-10-26"

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.
