Where do I start?? Well it's a disgusting place and we couldn't get out of there fast enough. The owners are not hands on so if there is an issue after 10:00 pm, you are on your own. This is basically a frat house with a over priced check in rate. The room was YUCK!! Sand on the bed -...

I have stayed at this property twice. Once before the renovation and recently again during the Memorial day weekend. The new owners have completely renovated the rooms. Carpets from all rooms have been replaced with new flooring, New Beddings, New counter tops in the bathroom sinks. The rooms are exactly as they appear on the motel's website http://www.seasidesands.com/rooms.htm The best...

The other reviews described this place perfectly. It is the most filthy, nasty place I have ever been in. When we got to this dump of a motel, we were told we would have to park in front of a dumpster and would be blocked by another car also. So the lady at the front desk said we would have...

The place is in a great location about a block from the beach right in the heart of the boardwalk. The rooms were ok. They need some work, but for the most part it was clean. I think some paint/new wallpaper would help alot. Management is very helpful and nice. They are also quick to fix whatever problems one may...

When I made our reservations online it was the Gangplank. When we got to NJ we could not find the Gangplank so I called their # only to be told they had changed the name to Seaside Sands--go figure! When we pulled up in front I was skeptical to say the least. When we went to check the room we...

We spent a week at Seaside Heights at the Gangplank, family of four - two adults and two children, 15 & 10. It is what you would expect at a base rate of $65/night. Our room was average. Two queen size beds, TV, refrigerator, microwave, table & chairs and the bathroom. Our room was clean and for the most part...
