“Best place in Seaside Park”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Had a great time. It has a classic "sea/beach theme throughout" so it's not very modern but it has alot of heart and had everything we needed within 2 blocks just made the vacation easy and enjoyable. The owner Joe and his wife ( and all of the staff) were very nice and made our stay relaxing and we just had so much fun with our family and friends. Can't wait to go back again in a few weeks! We are already planning on going a few times for long weekends next summer!!!

Great family friendly hotel!!! We have stayed here at the Windjammer a few times already. although it may not havethe most updated decor.....it really is a great place to stay for families of all ages. It is close to everything...beach, bay, the pool, Surf Taco, a small market, fishing for the kids, the hotel staff is really nice, and we have a great time on the bar deck!! We love it here and will be back again!!!!

We come to the Windjammer whenever we're not renting a house in Seaside Park. It's great to come for a long weekend. The pool is lovely, it's close to the beach. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and lunch and isn't expensive. The happy hour is very nice. It's also a great family spot; lots of people of all ages. It's fun, but not crazy with loud groups of young people all the time. One tip: for absolute quiet, get a room on the outside of the building. The rooms overlooking the pool and deck are great but you will hear people enjoying themselves outside. HOWEVER: it is by NO MEANS too noisy. With the windows closed and the air on, our poolside room was perfectly fine--and the pool and bar close around 9 pm or so anyway.

The hotel is down the block from a well-stocked liquor store, a small grocery that makes amazing sandwiches, Surf Taco, and a cute ice cream shop. Dinner options abound. And of course the beach is lovely.

Got to go down and see the nicest family and staff on the East Coast. You will find nobody nicer and more attentive to your family having the vacation you will never forget. Super Storm Sandy can't keep down a good thing. Love getting every chance I can to stop in and stay with such relation. My wife and son will be going next week just to be in good hands while I go away to work. Wouldn't be happier with my loved ones anywhere else. Thanks Joe & family and the whole staff!!!

Room Tip: If you want to be able to watch the kids swim book early and get pool side room. If you want to see...

My girlfriend and I stay in different hotels often, and the Windjammer puts the others to shame. The husband and wife proprietors are courteous, helpful, and genuinely friendly. We asked them where we could find the best sushi restaurant, and it was literally the best we'd ever eaten (and we eat a lot of sushi!). The Windjammer has a great, clean pool area that the hotel surrounds, so no street noise or staring passersby etc. They also have their own bar and restaurant on-site, which in my opinion is a diamond in the rough. The bartender is the owners' son, and he's great too. I guarantee that you wont find a less-expensive, properly made drink on that entire island. Its really nice to have a few good drinks and be 200 feet from your hotel room. We only ate breakfast there, but it was fantastic, inexpensive, and the waitresses were the best. The beach (to which you're given complimentary badges to on arrival) is a 2 minute walk away, less than a block. We would have stayed there twice more already, but they were fully booked both times! We spend a lot of time at the jersey shore in the summer and there are hundreds of choices as far as hotels go. We'll never stay anywhere else when we go to the beach, this place is a real gem. Two thumbs way up for the Windjammer Motor Inn, its the best!

Nice family run motel. Has a bar and restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch, also a nice happy hour. Good size clean pool off of the street view. Good place for a family, my daughter loved the pool. The owners are very nice and are glad to help. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

we are returning guests. the motel is in a quiet part of town, the rooms are clean. basic. we don't use the pool or eat @ the restaurant. not a box of kleenex & only motel on the planet without a clock radio. no chairs outside rooms or if you get one they disappear at night. cleaning staff always friendly and helpful. so it really is price and beach access for us. beach tags included in room. wifi? sometimes.
