Om My Gosh, where to begin...My husband called the hotel for information before booking. He was told that the hotel had been recently renovated. We booked months before our stay. We flew into Newark, so we had quite a ride to seaside. Once we got there it was around 3AM. We checked in, woke the children up, dragged 7 suitcases into the room...
I was HORRIFIED by the sight and the smell of this room. It smelled of Gas from the stove, that almost made me throw-up. The beds were sunken down in the middle, the bedding was tattered, old and smelly. The refrigerator was a "Disani" water cooler that you'd find at a convenience store, but the bottom (Motor/Parts) was exposed! Ewwwwww!!! The carpet and the sofa had many questionable stains on them......Eeeek!
We packed up the kids and traveled 40 minutes to find another hotel. We ended up at a National Chain hotel, and paid dearly for it. Needless to say, after seeing the Surfside Motel, it was worth every penny of the cost.
I'm on my laptop right now, so I can't add the photos...Oh yes, I took plenty of photos! I needed proof. My friends and family couldn't believe the "refrigerator" or the Beds...
One friend said that it looks like it should be "rented by the hour"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
