Good location- tight rooms

Located at the beach, that's the good. Small rooms, not even a table to sit by. Bathroom door hits against bed.

Seabonay

Seabonay Hotel is right on the beach and a couple of blocks from the boardwalk. We got a full refund for the room. The hotel needs a little work done to it. It had a couple of flies in the room and one area of the floor bent in as the wood was weak underneath. It just needs an aesthetics uplift. The staff and General Manager were great. They were polite over the phone and in person. They quickly understood our concern and the General Manager understood that we were on vacation and wanted to enjoy ourselves so he quickly gave us a full refund and also gave us some other hotels we could go to that were within our price range.

Less Than

I was very upset by the overall experience. This motel is not at all what the pictures show. Seller sights should make sure the pictures that are shown match what the buyer is getting! I was extremely disappointed

Stop over

We stayed the night while on a road trip down the east coast. Motel right on the beach. Definitely worth the money we spent.

Cheap Room not all that good

Check in was good no wait at all upon entering the room there was a huge fly who stayed with me my whole day/night stay sleeping on the lamp shade, there were other little flies that were biting my legs. My bathtub would not stop dripping after I used it, the carpet in the room was dirty and the other mattress in the room was terribly worn I am happy it was just me so I could just sleep on the other bed. Everytime I sat on the toilet I had to balance myself for the seat being loose. I dont usually leave bad reviews and am not that picky but there are other hotels in the area same price range and better I will stay at the Rodeway Inn or Flagship if I need another cheap room sorry Seabonay was too dated and ran down. Good places to eat within driving distance also fast food Mcdonalds, Pizza Hut and Burger King, beach very short walk that was the best part but still not worth it not even for $50 a night.

my experience at this motel could be better. i am aware that for $10-$20 more, i could've had a better hotel; but am not a picky person. what really bothered me most was the stenched in the room. it smelled like someone died there. the smell even clinged onto us!

if u want to enjoy the boardwalk, it's wise to rent a bike there or bring your own.

Terrible, Disgusting, Outdated Motel

My family stayed at the Seabonay Motel for 3 nights in early September. We were extremely disappointed with all aspects of our stay. We arrived early on Thursday, around 11:00 AM and unfortunately it was raining. We inquired about checking in early since the sign outside the Motel clearly stated they had vacancies. We were told our rooms were not available yet and we would be called when they were ready. We waited over 3 hours for our room to become available and finally received a call at 2:30 that we were able to check in. Upon checking in and going to our room we were shocked at how disgusting the rooms were. We had 2 rooms between our family and both rooms smelled heavily of mildrew. The bathrooms were disgusting, shower walls and grout were covered in mold/mildew. The beds were the most uncomfortable beds we had ever slept on and it we all slept terribly for 3 nights. I did not have high expectations as I knew this was a Motel and it was fairly inexpensive however in my opinion this motel should not even be open for business. The pictures provided on the website had to be taken at least 10-15 years ago and the exterior of the motel is in poor condition and very run down. Overall I was extremely dissatified with our stay at this motel and want to warn other people to beware before spending your money on what will definitely be a disappointment!!

almost perfect

Nice, simple, plain. A little outdated, some mold here & there but no different than other hotels. Nice location near beach and boardwalk. Woke up with mysterious bug bites by last day though : /
