We've been taking short trips to Seaside for years, and have finally found a perfect spot! You have the advantage of cleaner and quieter beaches in Seaside Park, while only being a block away from the boardwalk. The rooms were nice and clean, and the heated pool was awesome. The owner was also very nice. We will definitely return!

Let me start by saying you will not find nicer more accomadating owners. We stayed the 2nd week after Labor day when things get a little slower. I'll start with the negatives: The room had only a small stall shower which is very hard to clean up in. The bathroom itself is also a little tight. The TV although a... More

My husband and I had stayed here once a little over 4 years ago (it was our first vacation together), and decided to go back to Seaside Park for our 1st anniversary. Our first visit was a lot of fun, but with a pretty unimpressive room. It didn't come off as very clean either. But we figured we weren't spending... More

We didn't expect much, having stayed in Seaside Heights in the past, but thought we'd try a hotel in Seaside Park. Although the room is quite small, it was clean and the bathroom looked like it was recently renovated. No carpeting was a plus! Great location, right across the street from the beach! Parking and badges included with stay as... More

I booked a room thru Travelocity (although I could have used Hotels.com, Expedia.com, etc. because they all listed the hotel). At the time of the reservation, I received a confirmation number from the Desert Palm Inn, so I thought I was set.
