Location !!! You walk out the door down the path to a beautiful beach!!! When you are in the room the thought of "cheap motel" screams loudly at you. Those synthetic comforters yuck! And where do you buy bricks for pillows?! Why is it when the people above us flush , I fear the water will come through the wood... More

My wife and I decided to "go down the shore" for a few days. We thought we'd walk around Beach Haven and shop for a reasonable place to stay. To our surprise we booked the first place we stopped at, Coral Seas. I appreciated that the management didn't play the price game that so many others play: they set a... More

Excellent location, great for the children coming on and off beach, the managers/owners were incredibly helpful/thoughtful. This place is for the convenience, location, friendly service, clean well maintained facilities, beachfront, pool, and just overall a laid back vibe. Honest as can be and I have stayed at many a five star hotel.

This is my second review as my last review was in August 2010. Not much of a change and that is a good thing. Clean, basic room. Family friendly atmosphere and a nice stay at a fair price. This time around we stayed in the suite room which offers a bedroom and then another room with a living room area... More

I wanted to take the family away for just a few days to limit the expenses, so we stayed 1 night at Coral Seas. We live in Pennsylvania and wanted to make the most of our 2 days at the beach. We arrived at 10 am and the Coral Seas staff were gracious enough to let us use the beach... More

I just got back yesterday from a 3 night stay at the Coral Seas. We stayed in a STANDARD room, above the pool (room 231). The motel was much nicer than I expected based on the pictures on their website. Here are some comments: LOCATION: was perfect. There was plenty of free parking, and it was a very easy walk... More

The room smelt so musty! The wifi service was so very poor! There were cigarette ashes in the ice machine (Yuck!) - rooms were dated, locks were broken (but fixed within the day) - hotel only had a pool - no tiki bar, no live music, no store, no little eatery - nothing like the neighboring hotels yet the rates...

I had never been to LBI before but friends told us it was a charming town. We called and got an oceanfront view at Coral Seas. We arrived early and asked if they could call us when a room was ready. They quickly switched things around and let us in right then and there! The room had 2 windows and... More

Since I rely so much on other reviews, I feel that it's only fair that I do the same for people. I picked this hotel last minute over a holiday weekend. The place was exactly what we needed. The rooms were clean (and I don't think too small at all), the hotel had a nice pool and was steps from... More
