I checked in with my kids and the place was decent. What I would expect for the price but it was clean and that was good. Unfortunately, my kids had the pleasure of seeing people on the observation deck doing drugs and having sex. I had to not allow them up there for the rest of the stay. One night,... More

Me and my girlfriend were looking for a place close to the boardwalk and somewhere you could check in and be 21. This place was close and was great. The room was clean and was just enough for our weekend. The only things that aren't great here are the parking which you need to park on the street but they... More

Upon arrival it was more like visiting an... More

Came here last week and had a great stay. The manager Kristin was so welcoming and accommodating. Kristin went above and beyond to make us feel welcome The Alton Motel is about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. We will definitely come back again.

The room is clean. The pool hours can be a longer. Currently, it is 10am to 7pm. The motel need to invest some money to upgrade the equipment, too. There is no wifi on second floor and above. It only cost 30 bucks to buy a long range wi-fi antenna. Why not to buy one? Microwave are old and rusty,... More
