The Coral Seas Hotel was a wonderful "long weekend get away" for us from the City in mid September. We have been coming to LBI for close to 30 years for a long weekend or two during the year. Normally we stay at the Spray Beach hotel, but they had a wedding and no rooms on ocean front to be...

Very clean and super friendly team to help you out. Right on the beach with a sparkling clean pool. Will most definitely return!!!! The rooms were a bit musty, but I think that is to be expected, as the air is musty and the rooms are carpeted. Large flat screen tv to watch while falling asleep.

To the reviewer who complained they denied her checking in bc of a wedding party, it's bc this motel is a FAMILY FRIENDLY motel. That's what makes it amazing. This motel is right on the beach and has an amazing view of ocean no matter where you are

A perfect few days on LBI. Closest walk to the beach imaginable, and I hate the walk to the beach. The motel's oceanfront units have an immediate view over the dune to the beach and ocean. The pool was warm and inviting. The sign says no flotation devices, but I brought and use three "noodle" tubes and no one complained....

We usually stay at the Engleside, but opted for the Coral Seas due to availability. No regrets - would stay here again. If you are a light sleeper who needs a silent room, ask about the ac units when reserving. We were in a suite and both units in each room were terrifically loud. But we did get used to...

Never in my life did I think I would have a problem booking a room for after my wedding, but that is exactly what happened. I called to book a block of rooms for after my wedding reception next month, and the man on the phone flat out told me he doesn't want our group there. Because we will be...

the hotel room gave all three of my family members headaches. The room stunk like mold and mildew. The owners were rude and talked down to us, making nasty comments as we asked for a refund. The wallpaper in the bathroom was torn and had black mold behind the paper. The wifi didn't work and either did the tv. The...

I stayed at the Coral Seas for four nights and I absolutely loved it. I had a room on the third floor facing the ocean and the view was phenomenal. With the window open at night, I could hear the waves breaking on the beach. The room was extremely clean, but be forewarned that it is a little bit dated....

We stayed here July 26th for 3 nights with our teen sons and we loved it. Great location! You are right on the beach but also close walking distance to so many stores and restaurants. Rooms are outdated but very clean. We got a suite which gave us alot of space. Pool was nice and clean and never crowded. It...

We stay at Coral Seas every year for long and holiday weekends. We just stayed over the July 4th weekend, which did require a four night reservation. They were completely booked, with many families. I have never been there when it was so crowded, but it was still lovely. One of the nice things about this place is they attract...
