A small motel located right on the beach on Long Beach Island, the Coral Seas provides a small pool and a place for families to easily walk to the Shore. Third floor suites are best suited for families, with a separate bedroom with two double beds or one queen bed, a living room area with sleep sofa, and a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, and small kitchen table. Oceanfront rooms on the second and third floors have private balconies overlooking the beach. The hotel is open May through early fall. It did not suffer damage from Hurricane Sandy.

If you are looking for bells, whistles and commotion - this isn't for you. If you are looking for relaxation, clean room and property, and a great staff - then you have found your place. Coral Seas is right on the beach, quiet, and conveniently located by many shops, restaurants and bars. My husband and I have been coming here for years. It is a great getaway from the chaos of day to day life.
My SO and another couple booked this property a few weeks out from our travel date, based on it's location and positive online reviews. It did not disappoint. Parking was plentiful and convenient, check in was a breeze and the standard room and hotel amenities were excellent. The entire property was spotless and well maintained. The beach is literally steps away and a number of shops, restaurants and activities are within easy walking distance. The pool area was immaculate and chill. The vibe here is quiet, which was perfect for us. The staff was very friendly and welcoming too. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would not hesitate to book again. If you're looking for a clean, convenient, well priced, well maintained Jersey Shore motel, this is the place.
