Positive Reviews

Very well priced

Paradise Inn By the Beach is considered by almost all guests who visit to be really very economically priced. Although there are no frills and fuss at this motel, there is plenty of change left to enjoy more important things like entertainment and shopping.

Just minutes from the boardwalk

Although the motel is located just a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk, the motel itself is quiet. The rooms are situated in a way that they are protected from the sounds of the public.

The view is great

If you happen to have a room that faces the ocean, you won't be disappointed with the views. The sun rise is a wonderful sight, according to guests, but the sun set is even better with a glass of wine. Its normally a relaxing end to a busy day.

Negative Reviews

Could do with some TLC

There have been some comments about the building getting a bit long in the tooth; also the furnishings and fitting that are a bit old. Visitors have said the motel has the potential to be very popular, so a facelift would go a long way.

No coffee maker

Paradise Inn By the Beach is advertised to include a coffee maker, but some guests have found no coffee maker and no hairdryer in the room. If you ask the friendly reception to assist, they will gladly do so.

Awful parking

The parking at this motel is reportedly on a slope, and not on the usual flat surface that you would normally find a guest parking lot. Some visitors struggle to get in to the small parking spaces, and then they also struggle to maneuver on the uneven ground.
