Our room was amazing. It had a living room with fireplace, full kitchen, bedroom & a nice bath. It was cozy & charming. Each room is different & will fit about anyone's needs. We had views of the ocean & were literally steps from the beach, wharf & boardwalk. We appreciated how clean it was, the amenities & the staff... More

I have stayed in four of the hotels within this main strip and always return to the Edgewater Beach Motel because of the great location and facilities. This trip I traveled with four teenagers(who can be hard to please), and were the first to point out the three comfortable queen beds, Jacuzzi bath tub and great location. As a parent,... More

What a great little seaside getaway! Staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful when needed. The room was beautiful, very clean, and spacious, with very comfortable beds. Loved the ocean breeze at night! We had a full sized kitchen with all the cooking and dishes needed for cooking and eating in. A very short walking distance to the beach and... More

I was with a group of friends celebrating a birthday party and wanted to stay the night close to the boardwalk so we could go mini golfing and karioke. We were able to save enough to reserve one of the large cabins. It was absolutely spotless and the beds were made neatly. The hotel staff and manager were very professional... More

Edgewater Beach Motel is in a perfect location and has wonderful sleeping options and I thought would be perfect for our family coming for a wedding. I had stayed here once before and it was fine. I tried finding out prices a year in advance but was told they did not take reservations until they heard from repeat customers. That... More

Terrible except for the location. Location is good about 100m directly across from the pier and beach but that is where the good ends. The rooms - are spacious but dated, v dated.

We spent two nights in a room that was not much bigger than the bed, which was sloppily made. There was no dresser or closet, only a desk topped with a microwave and a rod sticking out of the wall behind the door with a couple of hangers on it. The carpet and furniture were shabby and stained and there... More

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
