Overpriced but your options are very limited in the area. Overall ok experience. The staff is friendly and they try but this isn't a "true" high end hotel. I'm looking forward to seeing the evolution of Asbury Park. Great town with tons of potential!!

The dirtiest hotel rooms I've seen. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated - the ocean view is great - location is great but the rooms were so filthy it was impossible to enjoy them. Candy wrappers, peanuts, clothing left behind….restaurant on site was closed. the bar is a creepy dark cave-like place with a teenage bartender who -... More

It is a good hotel, great location... little pricey for what you get. The hotel is old, and I get is not easy to keep things up to date at the Shore when you only have 4-5 months of peak season, but they keep it fairly good.

Was very pleased with hotel and room. Check in was easy and young girl helped with getting two rooms next to each other. Coffee in lobby was very nice The one thing we didn't like was the sink . Tv was ok. Otherwise a great experience.

I arrived to be given a room that only had 1 metal key (we were 2). Then in the 2nd room, only 2 out of 4 lamps worked, the 3rd lamp was placed nowhere near an outlet so we moved that to behind the TV so we can get more light. A hotel staff came over with light bulbs but... More

The place looked and felt like a crappy hotel that tried to be fancy. The guy at the front desk kept asking others if they needed help while he was checking us in. The room was not very clean and the evelvators were sketchy giving you a constant feeling like you were going to get stuck.

I guess you pay for the location because it is definitely not for the service. Rooms were a bit run down as well. One of duvet covers on bed was full of hair. Restaurant food was average. Pool was nice.

This hotel has a terrific location, nice lobby, great-sized rooms and fashionable decor BUT wifi is not free AND crummy TV. No premium channels and very poor reception...still you can cross the street and be on the beach or boardwalk.
