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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
