I never in my life thought that there could possibly be a place that we had decided to stay at but there is!! Let's start with the desk staff. The guy that was supposed to check us in, was EXTREMELY rude. He obviously did not enjoy his job. Upon arriving at the hotel we went to check in and were told that we did not have reservations and there were no rooms available. We explained that our credit card number had been taken over the phone and that we had one double room that was supposed to be held for us. He argued that we did not and there was no credit card number taken. The other gentleman at the counter got on the phone, not knowing who he called but then said okay that he had a room that we could stay in. We asked if we could see the room on the bottom floor that was given to us. Upon going into the room, the smell was terrible, the bed wasn't properly made, and when we lifted the comforter to see if the sheets were clean, I noticed OVER 20 MOUSE DROPPINGS in the bed. We were completely grossed out and went to the desk and told them not to book the room for us, after complaining we were speaking to another couple who was trying to get a room at this hotel and they explained to us that there was BLACK MOLD in the room that they were going to put them in. This black mold can kill you if you are all aware of this. We then tried one more room which was better than the first as far as no mouse dropping nor mold. We decided to take it only because there were no other hotels around with available rooms. The bathroom was filthy and the room of course did not smell good. The pool was also horrible which we never went swimming in because you could not see through the water at all. They did not give us towels, extra toilet paper nor anything else your typical hotel would provide you with. When we did go on the hunt for toilet paper a gentleman approached us and asked what we needed. We explained to him that we needed an extra roll of toilet paper, he proceeded to tell us for some reason that we needed a parking permit, but would cost $20.00. A parking permit is free of course which that was a scam. He had said that he owned the place and then decided to give us the permit for free, although it was midnight and we had, had no problems all day where our car was parked. After doing this we see that we cannot get into the office, and he rings the bell for the desk clerk. Of course the same RUDE guy that we had to deal with earlier came to the door, and responded "What do you want?" The man told him to get us a role of toilet paper, which he did slamming the door to go get it. When he came back to give it to us, he shoved it in my boyfriends chest and slammed the door to go back inside and to sleep again. He had looked like he was sleeping when he came to the door first. Anyway, we left the next door to try to find another hotel room at Point Pleasant which was an EXTREMELY better and beautiful stay!! Whatever you do, do not stay at the ATLANTIC MOTEL in seaside heights, it was TERRIBLE and should be shut down especially with the black mold.
