This place was terrible! I will never stay here again. The room was large but dusty and dirty. I couldn't put my feet in the tub. No extra toilet paper no cups, paper towels, ice machine, no washclothes. Suffice it to say it was a dump. The pool forget it. Dirty & old. Stayed on top floor didn't even have...

Let me explain my caption for this hotel. If you are traveling to Seaside Heights with your wife or family? this is NOT the hotel you want to check-in to. This hotel has been the venue/ host for soo much college kid parties, that the rooms are permanetly vandelized by cirgeratte burns on the furniture & extremely bad carpet stains....

So me and my family wanted to try Seaside Heights. I have two little girls ages 2 and 1. I read the reviews but told myself it really can't be that bad. It was the only place with rooms available so we tried it. Got there and there was the little Indian dude at the counter the reviews talked about....

My friends and I had a very good time of relaxing at this motel. The rooms were big enough for a few of us; they have 2 beds, TV, heat, and refrigerator, microwave all of that. We stayed here and really enjoyed it. The people working at the front desk were nice and very helpful. It's also only a couple...

We chose to stay at this motel based on a 3 star rating through Orbitz. We drove 300 plus miles and when we arrived, we found the accommodations to be very substandard. Upon entering the room we noticed a very foul smell. The carpet in the room was so dirty and smelly that we would not remove our shoes. The...

We stayed at the La Fontana for an entire week. What a mistake. When we saw our room, we were horrified and going to check out. We then were told our credit card had already been charged for the entire week and we could not afford to go to another motel. The motel is filthy, the furniture is falling apart...

First off, the pictures make it seem a lot nicer than it actually is. I went down with 3 other friends (2 of us were 17 so we're still considered minors) . Even though you're allowed 2 adults and 2 Children the guy charged us an additional $40 for the 2 minors to stay. This was never stated on the...

The room wasn't what was pictured on the web site. Carpets were stained, there was something still sticky on the night stand. The dead bolt didn't work. You could see the sunlight coming from around the door when it was shut. The pool was very small and dirty. I wouldn't allowed my girls to swim in it. I left, and...

Ok, so I've been in some nice hotels, but this isn't AS BAD as those last reveiws. We went for my friends' prom weekend, with too many people to fit into the rooms we could afford. At first when we got there, we thought it was pretty crappy because the man working the front desk was absolutely rude and couldn't...
