We have been to Seaside Heights 3 times now. The Sea Garden is typical Seaside. The hotel is outdated and run down. But the location is everything. We parked the car for the long weekend and walked everywhere. 2 blocks to the pier and 5 to Breakwater Beach. It was a 2 bedroom which was perfect and the price was... More

Stayed here for one night in August 2016. Our room was "clean" but stains could be seen all over the unmatched furniture that is from the 70s. The thought of what could caused these stains makes one nauseous. Pretty disgusting. Im not lying when I say the toilet was unusable. There was no room to sit because the toilet was... More

It is horrendous! Run away!! Upon entering we were hit with a stench of an awful cleaner, but hey at least they used one. Then there were no towels and not enough parking. Asked for towels, got blood stained ones! There was sand in the beds. We felt the springs in the mattresses. The stairs to the rooms were moldy... More

First of all, I truly feel bad about writing this review. This motel has both standard motel rooms and two bedroom suites with living room/full kitchen. This review is about our stay in one of the standard motel rooms. My wife and I found ourselves unexpectedly looking to spend one night at the New Jersey Shore in order to avoid... More

Spent a Saturday night here and the motel was absolutely great! Large beautiful pool. Very clean rooms with big kitchens. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the beach. Excellent!!!

Overall great experience. The motel was clean and orderly. Like any motel it did not have thrills, but you can't beat its proximity to the seaside nightlife along with the fact that the motel was very clean and pleasant to stay in. Furthermore, the pool itself provided for a lot of fun before going out at night. The motel is... More

From beginning to end this was a disaster. I put in an inquiry if there was a room available through booking.com. I got an email saying to call them, when I called they said they had a one bedroom available for $309 (which was for two nights). I booked, gave all of my information and asked to get an email...

Let me start by saying that this review is entirely opposite from what most of our customer feedback is like. We normally send confirmation emails at the time we charge the card, there is a possibility that we got your email address incorrectly, nevertheless let me remind you that when you called our sales associate told you that he was...

Let me start by saying I don't think there are any really nice hotels in Seaside Heights. If you want nice you should go to Pt Pleasant or Belmar. Anyway our trip was last min so we stayed at Sea Garden. It was actually pretty decent compared to other hotels in the area. I can tell there were recent renovations.... More
