We love coming down to LBI and staying at Coral Seas. It's right on the beach and walking distance to everything. You never have to get in your car of you don't want to. The owners are wonderful and friendly. The rooms are clean, all overlook the pool with seating right outside your door. The pool area is quite nice.... More

Ok, I don't get it. I don't understand how this hotel, as clean as it is, got a 4 on Trip Advisor. True, the location is fabulous. You couldn't get closer to the beach unless you were on a raft. And, yes, some of the rooms have small balconies overlooking the beach which is very nice. BUT, the rooms are... More

We had a room overlooking the staircase. When we ask if the room could be changed the owner was rude and sarcastic! He said no other rooms were available. We understood that. We paid over $175 a night and stayed three nights. Each night I noticed the main sign by the office door said "vacancy", and yet there were no... More

We just spent 2 nights at the Coral Seas and enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. The hotel is very old but clean overall. The area is expensive in general so we did not expect to find a good deal and this place isn't. Overall it met our expectations.

This is a special place run by special people. I have stayed there in the past a long time ago and remembered how nice it was there. I had to find a place to stay under car trouble circumstances at the end of the weekend. They gave me a special room after hearing my situations and were so caring. The... More

Just stayed here with a few girlfriends for the weekend. The location is unbeatable. The beach is steps away and there are restaurants and fun places to have a few drinks within walking distance. Honestly, our group of 4 women was a bit loud for this motel. (We're in our early 40's so we're not out of control crazy, but... More

I've stayed at the Coral Seas multiple times and have always been totally happy. The location is super, the staff treats you great, rooms are clean & comforable, and it is a friendly, family environment.
