We stayed here for 4 nights and the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. We had two beds in our room and one bed was full of hair very disgusting. The only positive I can find is the AC really worked and the staff were friendly. Oh and another thing there is no elevator.

We've been coming here for only 4 years but keep coming back for good reasons. The motel is the standard L shape as many in the area but there are a couple of things that sets it apart. One, many of the rooms have 3 double beds. That is important for the demographics of our group. Two, the motel sits...

We stayed at the GCM over the Labor Day weekend. Kathy welcomed us upon check in. She was very nice and helpful. Needless to say, our last 2 days turned sour with Kathleen who was very uptight, not friendly with our toddler and us, showing a great deal of attitude, when we wanted to check out. We wanted to check...

My husband and I booked a last minute booking at the Gold Crest. This was our second stay, and probably not our last. The Gold Crest is very much like other Jersey Motels except...They need to upgrade and repair the rooms. We had one of the best rooms, #317. It's on the third floor, so it's a pain checking in...

This review begs a response because the person who wrote this review has difficulty telling the truth. She failed to mention the new kitchens, the new flatscreen tvs, the new carpeting , the new ceiling fans, the new wicker furniture-just to mention a few of the recent upgrades that were made in every room of my motel. Last year a...

We arrived and were met by Cathy who made arrangements for to be able to get into the rooms immediately. the locations was great, right across the street from the park and then the beach.The maids were sweet and accommodating. The wifi was not working much of the time.

In dire need of updating as well as general maintenance. Unable to use back parking and gate access due to ceiling falling on a vehicle . Daily housekeeping poor, light bulbs out in outdoor areas, drips from upper level A/C onto my level deck outside room, garbage dumpster covers not put in place so odor and flies were a problem...

kathleenpencek, Owner at Gold Crest Motel, responded to this review

This review demands a response as it does not depict a true picture of our motel. We have been in business for eighteen years; many, many of our guests compliment us on how we maintain our property. They tell us how much they have enjoyed their vacation at our motel. We have learned over the years that some guests simply...

This was a reasonably priced quiet place to stay. As far as cleanliness it's only okay. Needs updating bad. Coffee mugs need to be run through a dishwasher or replaced (terribly stained). Gas grills were a nice addition but there was nothing to clean them with. Washer and dryer also need replacing. Nice pool but all lounge chairs need replacing.

A good motel offering big rooms fully equipped with all kitchen utensils and a barbecue station. A fascinating ocean view and a walking distance from the Boardwalk. The motel also offer a pool and mini golf. It is disappointing that after all these advantages the motel management was very rude and unprofessional while dealing with their residents, definitely a point...

Place is extremely old and dirty. Dust everywhere. Rugs are gross bedding and beds even worse. Would not recommend to anyone. Rooms are musty and air conditioning barely does anything. Pictures of the room are highly deceiving. Small and cramped and way over priced.

My husband stayed here as a child every summer for years. We now live in Florida and came up to visit family and decided to show our kids what we grew up with. We love this motel. It's retro... The basics haven't changed... But has been updated, painted, cleaned etc. The owner takes great care in keeping the place clean...
