My area, in the Extreme North End is quieter and nicer than all of Seaside, and, is a great place for families.
If you and your wife like to go out, you can walk to almost anywhere, including couple nice clubs on boardwalk, where they are having some pretty good bands too!
Many places are selling quite lower than you would expect, and I generally check all the sites daily.
So I see the price differences. It would be the best time to buy.
Hope you find what you are looking for, and it's true that Seaside Park is nicer, but it's much more expensive, and you have to go a few blocks into the Park to see the difference, and that far in, you probably couldn't afford.
Let me know if you'd like to see my place. Be glad to show you.

As a teen I hung at seaside heights I loved the place. As a responsible adult I am more selective.
This is the time to comsider the shore great prices and selection.
Good house hunting. If you have a smart phone Text MJW to 87778 that will give you the listings and solds in the area and facts you need. No smart phone?
go to http://www.RealEstateInOceanCounty.info for the same info.
as a lifelong resident of this area. I can safely say that some parts of Seaside Heights do have the 2:00 bathroom breaks .
However there are areas that are fine are quiet neighborhoods. The key is to find a agent who knows the area. Take a look at 228 Franklin ave. that home is in a nice quiet area. You can use the web link below. Let me know what you think.
From a personal viewpoint and not a professional one, I know when my friends and I were younger, the 3:00 a.m. atmosphere that you described above is exactly what I was remembering...lol! Don't you watch the Jersey Shore? LOL!!
Honestly, I'm not sure of what the correct answer or opinion is here. I, personally, being a mother of three kids, wouldn't probably buy in Seaside but would consider maybe Ortley, Lavalette or Ocean City which you mentioned above. Ocean Grove is also a nice town too.
Good luck and try reaching out to Laura Giannotta, she's here on Trulia and also an agent in South Jersey. Here's her ActiveRain profile: http://activerain.com/laurag
