The automobiles and Pepsi machine place the date of the photographs in this postcard to the 1970s. But a recent drive past the motel confirms that very little has changed to the physical appearance of the Atlantic Motel between then and today. The motel is located on E. Central Ave. between Hancock and Sheridan Avenues. Arline and Ernie Ottoson were the owners of the motel when the photos were taken. Arline is known these days as “Councilwoman Arline Ottoson” and has served the residents of Seaside Heights on the Borough Council for many years. Modern photographs are available at the motel’s website by clicking here.
