I live in New York and enjoy visiting the Jersey Shore every year as I have for the past 6 years. The Cloud 9 Inn is the dirtiest hotel i have every stepped into. The room had such a foul odor. It was a cross between stale air and a musty moldy smell. The light in the room did not... More

Someone should prepare a class action lawsuit against the town if Seaside Heights for allowing the motels there to maintain such horrid conditions! This room cost us $300 for 1 night....here are the real pics. Not at all like the ones on their website!!!

upon pulling up to this motel the real life thing is run down and not as pictured, the only nic thing is possibly the pool. The staff was arguing with another group of travelers when we pulled in and there are beer cans and bottles everywhere as well as broken furniture outside the hotel rooms. Upon seeing all of this...

He just said that the Motel is overbooked, He was very unprofessional. In the end we accepted the fact, because we stayed for just 1 night in Jersey. He promised that the place would be... More

This place is absolutely disgusting. First of all, it is not the Sand Castle Motel, it is Cloud 9 Motel. Upon arriving, we were asked to pay $40 each for beach passes that when we returned we got our money back, which we did.

This hotel was clean, with cozy rooms, seems recently updated and in the perfect location. Once we arrived, we didn't have any problem until we checked out. It seemed to promote nice guests-everyone was courteous and friendly. The manager tried his best to see that we were happy and enjoyed ourselves. Here we were treated like family.
