Its right on the Beach and has a heated pool. I believe its family owned and they always keep the place clean. Could us a facelift inside the rooms but you cant beat it . My grandson always thought it was our shore house when we would stay there. Homey and com

Jackie and company were very professional and friendly. Gave us a few good recommendations to eat for lunch and dinner and also told us a few bars that were open. Hotel was clean and great location on the beach. Although not beach weather as is was last weekend but weather was great to walk the beach. Very clean.

The Coral Seas is definitely a gem on Long beach Island, NJ> Located just steps to the beach at a wonderful family resort. Patrick, Jacqueline, Meg and Mary Kate are the perfect hosts tending to your every need. This is definitely one of the better motels on beautiful Long Beach Island, NJ.

Had a weekend getaway with some friends who booked this motel after Labor Day. I was pleasantly surprised by the motel itself and the help by Pat Kelly, the owner and the rest of his staff. They were very accommodating when the island was hit with a rainstorm and made sure that we were safe and told us where to... More

We stayed at the Coral Seas Motel for one night on Sept. 8. From the moment we arrived until we left, I cannot say enough good things about the staff (especially since we checked in very late and were only there for one night). They were personable, helpful, accommodating, and made us feel very welcome. The location of the motel... More

We were very happy with our stay at Corals Seas. The pictures capture what Coral Seas looks like, rooms aren't anything to brag about as far as decor, but it is very clean and there is nice fridge and table for making a quick sandwich/breakfast before heading out to the beach! Convenient and int a great location! We would stay... More

My wife and I returned here this year for a four-day stay. We stayed here in 2015 and gave it an excellent review. It still deserves that. You need to get a room on the second or third floor (walk-up only) to have an ocean view: otherwise you're looking at the side of a dune. The beach has been replenished... More

Let me be totally honest here, this place is a time capsule motel in the finest sense of the term - we loved it! If you want a quiet stay with fantastic ocean views (if you request an ocean front room on the 2nd or 3rd floor), then this is THE place to stay in Beach Haven. I would give... More

location is great. beautiful beach great food nearby and attractions. as for the hotel the pool was nice well kept. The beds are small and pillows must be stuffed with squeaky cotton from those pill bottles. air conditioners must be at least 10 years old. no parking space.
