Pavilion has all the amenties to meet your needs from hotel rooms to apartments

About Us

The Pavilion Motor Lodge is located on 8th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Ocean CIty, New Jersey. At this end of the island, Atlantic Avenue is the closest street to the ocean.

There are NO streets to cross to the boardwalk and beach. The main building with the pool in the center of our beautiful garden is a 4-minute stroll to the boardwalk.

As you walk from the hotel, you pass only parking areas. If you look directly at the boardwalk from the Pavilion Motor Lodge, you will see the Music Pier to the right on the Moorlyn Terrace side of 8th Street. Looking to your left you will see the Water Park at 7th Street and at 6th Street the Wonderland Pier Amusements. Surfing enthusiasts need only to walk to 7th Street Beach for surfing lessons or surfing events.

What Our Guest are Saying

Fit the bill perfectly

I gave the Pavilion an excellent based on the category it is in. This is not a Hilton, and you are not paying for a Hilton. At this price point for a motel/hotel a block from the boardwalk, it was excellent. The room was clean and looked to have fairly new carpeting (which tells me the owners are vested in their property). The beds were comfortable and everything in the room was functional. The staff here are friendly and genuine and made us feel welcome. And did I mention it is only a block from the boardwalk? The only complaint was some noisy neighbors who arrived late Saturday and did not demonstrate good hotel etiquette and allowed their door to slam closed multiple times and tossed their luggage around like gorillas, but that was not the hotels fault. All that being said, I will stay here again next time we visit Cape May.

Great first impression!

Our family had a pleasant stay at the Pavillon last weekend. The staff was friendly the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Free parking was great and they lent us beach tags to use during our stay.
The location is perfect! We enjoyed the short walk to the beach/boardwalk. We (including a 3- and a 5- year old) even walked to a nearby ACME. The onsite restaurant is convenient. We had our breakfast there after a long run/walk on the boardwalk early morning. The waiter was so attentive.
The room is clean, so is the pool. It's nice to be able to use the pool after hours at the beach. There is a patio/garden area that you can sit and relax. The downside is that smoking is allowed in this area.. it does take away some of the enjoyment we had during our outdoor breakfast. Reviewed June 9, 2017 via mobile

Nice place to stay in a great location!

Stayed here for a night with my family. Been to OC many times over the years, and walked by this place countless times, but this was my first stay. The rooms were good, including the bonus of a fridge. It’s nothing fancy, but safe, clean, restaurant on site, and helpful staff. And the location just off the Boardwalk is fantastic!
I’d stay here with my family again. If you’re going to OC, I’d suggest giving this place a try.

Summer fun

The Pavilion is a great place to stay. It is centrally located that you can walk to most things. So close to the beach and boardwalk. The hotel rooms are a good size and the apartments are wonderful for familuies.

Thank you for a fantastic vacation!

If your Jersey Shore destination is Ocean City, I highly recommend the Pavilion Motor Lodge. Everything from booking my reservation through my departure could not have been more seamless. When I booked my reservation, the manager, Desi, went out of beyond out of her way to make me feel welcome. She told me all about Ocean City, given that it is my first time here, and extended more courtesy than I have ever received from any Hospitality employee. Our room was exactly as I expected: clean, fully stocked, and quietly located away from the pool. I am thoroughly impressed with the hotel staff. Thank you, Jerome, for - at 11:30 p.m. - bringing a plethora of extra pillows to surround my toddler in the queen size bed, lest she roll out of bed. Thank you, Jasmine, for helping my little girl fix her rubber ducky toy. Both of you taking a personal interest in us made our vacation all the more special. My whole family thoroughly enjoyed your lovely pool and eating outside of your Charming Dine

We had a great weekend at Pavilion Motor Lodge

Dear Friends and Travels, We had a nice weekend stay at Pavilion.
We have stayed there before and always found it clean and comfortable and great staff. The pool is sparkling clean. Good little restaurant on site too. We had breakfast there also. Close to boardwalk and music pier.
Overall great stay. It is a clean, basic, no-frill kind of place that fits our needs. Our kids now refer to it as the "sea horse". They are already asking to go back!
