For the last 8 years, we've been staying at Aqua Beach towards the end of summer. It's our home away from home and the staff always treat us like family. What a convenient walk to the beach as well as the boardwalk too (although almost all the shops are closed for the season). The pool is always nice and clean. I love that there's a fenced off area for the kiddie pool. We had an oceanfront room and it was lovely to see the beautiful sunrise in the morning. I have to admit the room is a bit outdated and the sofabed was hard to operate. We loved the shampoo! Our room was very well-kept and very clean! Restaurant was a bit busy since there were many guests and only a few tables inside as well as outside. With only 3 people (that I saw) working, it took long to just get someone's attention so I could get a cup of coffee. Overall, we had a lovely stay and we'll definitely be back again next year!

I always enjoy my stay when i visit this hotel. I was kind of thrown off when there wasnt a curtain in my room. The light from the pool kept my room very well lit as if it was daytime. Due to that i did not get much sleep kind of sucked. But everything else was good.

Staff was friendly. Close to beach.Rusty shower rod. Old creaky mattresses. Door didn’t latch properly. No maid service. Noisy neighbors. Had to pay for ice. No continental breakfast or even complimentary coffee for the room. Very limited dishes and silverware, only 2 spoons. Parking spaces are very tight.

It was nice but when we checked in there were sheets at our door on the floor that were from the prior guests and they left them there for a day I had to call and ask them to be picked up and still nobody came until later. I didn’t want anyone to think I took the sheets off and tossed them lol. The front desk person named Gina is amazing. She is smart & friendly. The pool was nice but kinda crowded & loud but ok lots of young adults throwing the ball making it more like a party place. Weed smell at the pool big time maybe it’s legal in Jersey but guests were smoking blunts walking down the stairs. The beach was at our door step so we loved that & the morning sunrise & sunset from our room was perfect. The cleaning staff did not leave an envelope for their tip so I had to give the tip to the front desk. They changed the towels & garbage but we made the beds. It was a decent stay I would give it 3 stars. Gina honestly is the star of the hotel. She knows her job well.

We have been returning to Aquabeach for 3-4 years. We are a group of 4 families. This year we only had 2 nights.With prices as they are the ceiling shouldn't fall in leaking water all over, and then in the same room the air conditioner goes out on a very hot day. It took 7 hours to get back in one of the rooms. Multiple requests for some compensation have fallen on deaf ears. Very disappointed. We will not go back.

I definitely DO NOT recommend this hotel even though it’s saying that I do. I picked this hotel because it was right on the beach and right next to the boardwalk. I loved that it had a pool and a rooftop deck. The lobby smelled clean and the bed was comfortable for me, but that’s about all the nice things I have to say. It was confusing to find our room at first, it took a while to find the bagel shop in the morning and when I got there it said that it was closed even though it was open. The parking was very tight, and my friends and I went out for the night. When we got back there were LITERALLY NO PARKING SPACES AVAILABLE and I drove around a few times thinking that I missed something. I parked on the sidewalk because there was no place else to park. Despite the fact that I had the sign hanging on my mirror proving that I was a guest at the hotel, I got a ticket. On the way back from the beach, I got a call from the hotel telling me that if my car wasn’t moved in ten minutes it would be towed away. I moved the car into a tiny space and went upstairs to pack. The bathroom needs to be updated in multiple ways. The faucet in the shower was coming out of the wall when I turned the shower on. There’s a hole on the side of the faucet in the sink so the side of the counter was wet. The toilet was so low and the water in the toilet was so high that my hand was touching the water when I was cleaning myself. And there wasn’t much room for that because my arm and should

The hotel is clean. It is an older hotel and definitely could use and update. The pool area was great and the beach cafe downstairs is a plus. Overall we had a great time and the staff was nice. I wish they would replace the beds. That was by far, the worst part of the stay.
