I was a little apprehensive about staying here after reading some of the negative reviews. However, since it was 1 block from the boardwalk, and I can park there for free. Asbury Park charges 2 dollars per hour to park at the beach. So I decided that since it was October, there should be no problem getting a room anywhere...

My girlfriend and I decided to stay at the Oceanic for a Saturday night after attending a concert at the Stone Pony. We have stayed at the Berkeley several times but wanted only one night and something affordable. The Oceanic is at a perfect location for walking to beach, bars & restaurants. In addition to a cheap nightly rate, they...

Wow. I would like to say "you haven't really lived until you've stayed at this place," but its more like "congratulations on getting out alive!" This is by far the cheapest place to stay in Asbury Park. It is right next to the Berkley Hotel, which charges about $200 a night and does not have free parking or wifi. The...

This hotel is GREAT! Yes an older hotel, but back then they built things to last so why mess with it? Everything was clean, towels were fluffy and the beds were comfy. There was a digital TV w/cable, a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Across the street from the ocean and boardwalk! Close to lots of things. We were on...

This is a functional "efficiency" kind of an accommodation: bed, linens, table, refrigerator, "hot plate" stove, and basic cable. It's convenient to the beach; but definitely not a place to stay on a rainy day.

It's all about location, location, location. The motel looks rundown and it hasn't been renovated probably in years but is clean and just a place to lay your head after a day at the beach. You can park your car for free and walk to the beach. I do recommended if you're looking for something decent close to the beach.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a Friday and Saturday during high season. Paid about $85/night, which is a STEAL for the Jersey shore in the summer (especially when all the other hotels in Asbury start around $150/night)! The hotel is a block from the beach and boards (unfortunately, there is a tag fee to get on the beach). We...

I can NOT believe the accommodations we received here. I will never ever ever go BACK! I wish I checked out the minute I opened the door but I had no other options. The reviews had said that it was "outdated and need a few repairs"..... OMG That is an UNDERSTATEMENT! I was so grossed out I don't know where...

Due to price and location I was drawn to the oceanic hotel. Read the reviews and most seemed to be ok just said outdated. That is the understatement of the year. The bathroom looks like it hasn't been touch or remodeled ever since the building was opened. Dirty tiles in the shower not to mention hair on the walls in...
