Great Hotel, right on the boardwalkPosted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: The location, the price, the staff, the heated pool. The separate bedroom was nice and a large screen TV with cable. The Wifi was fast.
Cons: The carpet was dirty to walk on without socks, but being that close to the beach... The pool closed down at 7:30PM which I thought was early.
Location: The board walk is 5' from the parking lot. The beach was not far to walk to either. Breakfast, lunch, dinner all could be had within walking distance.
The Sahara Motel is one of the nicest vacation motels I've ever stayed at. I travel extensively and have had my share of bad motels, this one was not one of those. True it's a little outdated, but for the price, the location and the staff this vacation was outstanding. The carpet was a bit dirty, but that close to the beach, what do you expect? The Frig was clean and a full size unit. It also had a microwave, oven and even a toaster. The owner and staff went out of our way to accommodate us and they were so friendly. The pool is heated, had a nice deck we could sit on to eat and watch the waves. The only thing missing was a hair dryer, but next year we'll just take our own.

Sahara at the BeachPosted Aug 24, 2013
Cons: Quieter A/C units more comfortable furniture and updated appliances
Location: This was the best part. Located at the end of the boardwalk on north end. Very quiet and convenient. Didn't even have to move my car.
Well the staff was very friendly...our stay was for two nights and on the second day we had to ask to have our room serviced. For some reason it was skipped but the girl at the desk took care of it Beds were comfortable bathroom was updated. Furniture was not comfortable. This is an old hotel so not much was to be expected. Window unit was located in bedroom and it was so noisey it was hard to sleep. Great location though overall right next to the boardwalk.

Thank you for your comments. You room is serviced daily..we only would not service the room if told not to by the guest. Glad it was worked out immediately as per your comments. We are also making great updates to the motel like the flat screen TVs in all the rooms. Look for more great updates for next season. Thanks for staying with us. See you again. The Sahara Motel...

The location is literally right on the boardwalk!!Posted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: The staff was informative and AWESOME.
Cons: Better curtains in the room and replace the tiny older TV's. Really, nothing else.
Location: The boardwalk is right next to the parking lot..so not far from that. The Piers are all within walking distance.
The staff was great. The location was awesome. Some may say it is dated, but for the price and location, I can't think of a better place that I'd like to stay. WIFI is available, the pool is nice. We stayed for an overnight and had a great time. I am DEFINITELY staying here next year when we take our next Wildwood vacation.

New management needs improvementPosted Jul 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked a room here from looking at the overall reviews, and it seemed like a nice place. But was I wrong. It turns out that there is new management here, and they have absolutely no idea what customer service seems to be. They interrogated me as soon as i arrived to check-in. They didn't believe that my PA ID was real, and kept asking how many people were staying with me (even though I clearly booked it for two). We had some friends staying down the street at a nice little motel, and came over to visit us. Before they could even get to our room, management had run out of their office and stopped them and started interrogating them. "Where are you staying? Who do you know here? Why didn't you book with us? You're going to need a wristband to enter our property to visit your friends." Needless to say, my friends decided not to visit from being so alienated, and I felt the same way. They even intimidated one of my friends to pay $25 just to visit us for an extended amount of time in the evening. I've never had a vacation ruined, but this hotel managed to do that. I didn't even want to stay at their hotel that night from how they treated me, so I ended up sleeping at my friends hotel. The management there is rude, unprofessional, and just care about getting some cash from tourists. NJ does not deserve to have hotels like this, especially after Sandy.

I already responded on Tripadvisor to this false review. It is sad that the customer has given such untrue information. In fact the customer broke all the rules by bringing in unregistered guests, even after they were told about our policy of guest fees. In addition t he Sahara went out of its way to accomodate this reservations even though they made the reservation stating they were over 25 when in fact they were not. The sahara management tries to accomodate all guests, and with our over 25 years in the Motel business we surely believe we have an understanding of what our guests want and what there needs are. In this case we obviously have a young adult who just did not want to follow our motel rules even after they were clearly explained to them. It only takes a few bad eggs like this guest to spoil the vacation of other guests, and that would not be tolerated. We are very proud of the fantastic Motel we have and all the exciting upgrades this season like flat screen tv's etc. We look forward to seeing everyone at the beach at the fantastic Sahara Resort Motel.
