We took a chance on this hotel based on reviews, and we were not sorry. Two families met at the hotel and stayed for four nights. The staff made sure we were in rooms next to each other. Each room was large enough for two queen beds, a mini-fridge, table/chairs, and closet. We had 4 people in each room (2...

This is an old fashioned motel. The things that bothered us the most were the crooked toilet that made it feel like you were falling off of it anytime you sat down and the windows and/or door were so thin you heard every trash truck every morning, and they drove by every morning. Room 600

We have been staying here for over ten years !! The front desk and staff employees couldn't be nicer. It is our "Go TO" place in Ocean City in Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring !! The rooms have always been nice and clean. You could not ask for a better location. You are in walking distance to the beach, boardwalk,...

I just stayed at the Impala Island Inn 7/11 thru 7/13. It's a typical shore-type motel, a bit dated and smells somewhat musty. My biggest concern was with the Life-guard on duty!! I was at the pool on Saturday afternoon from 12:30 till 5:00 (closing time). Many people had young children at the pool area. The Life-guard was constantly on...

Hadn't been to the Impala in a few years and am left with mixed reviews on the improvements made since my last visit. While the flat screen TV and the modest entertainment center in our room was a welcomed addition, the loss of the table and chairs and moving the small refrigerator to the closet was disappointing. It’s clear the...

We got a "great" deal on a 2 bedroom according to the manager the room was just redone. While the bedrooms and bathroom may have been redone the kitchen was not. The dishwasher sounded like it was going to explode when you used it. The location of the room was great however the maids cart rammed into the chairs all...

We stayed at the Impala Island Inn at the recommendation of a friend and I was so pleased with her recommendation that I want to pass it along to others looking for a place to stay in Ocean City, N.J. We were warmly greeted by the front desk staff, who processed our reservation paperwork and told us about the parking...

50+ family members stayed at the Impala Island Inn for the Nth time in decades on June 13th-16th. The day prior to leaving for Ocean City we had a medical emergency with my father, and expecting to not be able to attend, we sadly cancelled our reservation. The Impala was kind enough to refund our deposit despite the 1-day cancellation...

My husband and I used trip advisor to locate a place for one night down the shore. The ratings were good so we decided to stay one night at the Impala. The room was clean, the person at the front desk allowed us to check in early and all of our questions were answered. The only negative was the trash...

We have stayed at the impala for at least 5 years now- always early June and the prices cannot be beat (beach tags included). We have stayed in one of their apartments (#100) the last 3 years and have found it perfect for our needs! The bedding seems to be better than the reg hotel rooms and it is better...

“King-bed rooms are located on the 2nd floor, which does require using steps.”

“Avoid southside rooms, over looks amusement park and parking lot and walls are super thin.”

“We like rooms on the north side across from the main hotel. Quieter and you have your own (much smaller) pool. Great for smaller kids.”
