Rooms small, floors covered with silt of sand despite maid service, cable TV gets maybe ten or twelve stations, two of them HBO. Toilet mechanism kept going on blink. Showers functional but very cramped. But the real kicker is a bunch of rowdy, drunken revelers, many of whom gather outside the rental office at a table all day and well into the night, making enough noise to raise the dead. I brought this to management's attention, indeed had to address some of these idiots myself, and management just smiled -- "oh, the security guard was here." Yeah, right. Also, the parking lot is crammed with SUVs and you can enter nose first, but you have to back into the main road to get out. Recommendation: avoid Seaside Heights and Seaside Park hotels altogether. Tradewinds Motor Lodge in Lavallette is much nicer, and it's got wonderful bakery on the corner, Italian restaurant right across the street, and is a very short block from the ocean.
