The location of the model is very good, it is close to the boardwalk. It is also close to the clubs so you will hear the music playing at night but that did not bother us at all. The staff vas very polite and the room was clean. The room was what we expected with a small fridge and TV...

Solo traveler, off season. Positives: cheap, one block from beach, walking distance to Casino pier, extremely friendly accomodating staff, the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in, fridge, microvave, stove. Negatives: Limited offstreet parking (what you see in the photo is it); tiny bathroom; slightly saggy bed (I like firm) rooms not sound proof; and the deal breaker for me, advertised...

For $99, I didn't expect much. But, I must say, The Franklin was clean & comfortable. There was a fridge, stovetop, microwave, tv & wifi. We parked on the street (free), as the lot was full. The Franklin is close to everything in Seaside Heights. No pool, but we were only here for the night, and besides, we came down...

small family owned motel just steps from the boardwalk. There was a club or something nearby so loud music until 3am . . . but it's kind of to be expected in this classic Jersey Shore town. A beach pass is included in the price of the room. Check out was a little early - 10am. Rooms include microwave, refrigerator,...

We had bed bugs, the water in the tub didn't go down, the floor was dirty, and my friend and I both got sick the day after we left. It was a disappointing experience which left a lot more to be desired.
