Been all up and down the Jersey coast, stayed in some of the nicest places, some of the worst, this was absolutely one of the worst places I have ever been. Filthy, disgusting, dirty, nasty, that is all I can say. Stayed one night, left the following day because it was so unbelievably nasty.

I have 2 positive comments about this hotel. The location was great, and the pool was clean. Check in was a disaster, the woman working behind the counter was coarse and rude. Didn't explain much to us, and it felt like she was scolding us when we didn't understand. The office and all around the hotel smelled like marijuana. The room.... was dirty. The floor had

The room was not the room advertised. I immediately had a bug jump on me while entering which looked like a bed bug. The air condition was not working in the room assigned to us while it was over 90 degrees while arriving. The room we were supposed to get was given to someone else and our room was I believe, downgraded. The only room available was given to us. Door frames broken in pieces, toilet paper all over the bathroom, rust all over the shower. We immediately left. We did not stay

It was the worst motel I have ever been too. The staff was rude, and did not help in any way. The door did not close completely and the lock was broken. I would never reccomend this to even my worst enemy it was the worst experience I’ve ever had.

This hotel has seen better days. The sink was leaking, we were afraid to use the stove due to the condition it was in, the bathroom was completely outdated and small. Also, the bedroom window was plexi glass that wasn't even in correctly which was ridiculous, because if someone wanted to come it, it would be quite easy! The only thing that seemed to be maintained at this hotel is the pool!

Very dirty. Moldy. Graffiti on mattress.

The worst hotel/motel experience . I have stayed at other motels in this area before and this one is really the worst. Not clean at all. I was afraid to sleep or touch anything . I actually cleaned the room myself. We were only there for one night and the other hotels were sold out.

From Bad to Worse

Pros: closeness to beach
Location: Boardwalk and beach
Over all the motel was sketchy,(unsafe) To start sheets dirty (unsanitary) , motel light shining in room, and room the size of a shoe box. To top off on day of checkout (11:00am) went back to room after breakfast to finish getting stuff ready for checkout (10:45am) and a housekeeper was exiting my room with a bag of mine when we have not checked out yet and he said was told to clean the room by the boss (this was before check out time!!!!!). Went into room to find the rest of my thing were gone - frig cleaned out (I still has items in the frig). I felt violated!!!! Went down to the main office and told the front desk person what had happened and he really didn't seem that concerned. Offered me $50.00 for lose of food. I feel that I should be refunded at least my nights stay. As a family living on social security benefits $176 may not be a lot for some people but it was a lot for us and we were very disheartening.

Great location

Pros: The location
Cons: It's a beach motel I was not expecting to walk into the Carlton. I can't think of anything I would improve.
Location: Walking distance to boardwalk, shops, beach, place's to eat. I parked my car and did not get into it again until we left.
I was very pleased with my stay. So close to the beach and boardwalk. I could even see the ocean from my room. Clean room and good staff. I would stay again.
