Awful hotel, poor customer service. Booked hotel online (hotels.com) as a last minute beach trip. When we arrived at the hotel, they claimed to have never received the reservation, probably a 30 minute ordeal. They told us they had no more standard rooms for booking, and said they only had one suite available for double the price. Luckily, we were... More

Booked this hotel the morning of the day we were planning to stay early in July as we had planned on meeting some friends in Asbury Park. Unfortunately, due to a last minute change of plans we were unable to find any other reasonably price rooms closer to Asbury Park. The price paid for a one night stay was $140... More

this was the worst hotel ever . The water did not drain. I have been here for about an hour and the room is still freezing. The sheets were stained. And we called to fix our heater, and the guy came yelling and slammed the door on our face and left yelling. Not to mention this is the manager 0.o.... More

I wanted to go to the jersey shore Labor Day weekend and decided to book at Econo Lodge. Motel and hotels closer to the beach were priced at $300 a night. This place was only $80 a night. I booked this room at least 2 weeks in advance. My friend told me that a few days after I booked, the... More

The room was good enough for us 4 girls to spend a weekend down the shore. It was clean and spacious and the bathroom was big enough. The AC worked just fine and it met the needs we needed for our one night stay. It was only a 15 min ride to the beach and a much better deal then... More

What a dirty place, We spent $20 on Lysol for the dirty, smelly carpet and the air filter in the AC. The refrigerator was in a cabinet and it was so full of ice in the freezer section, nothing could fit in. There is only one ice machine in the office. Would it hurt to buy toilet seat covers for...

I honestly chuckle to myself while reading the poor reviews of this place. From the outside you would be a bit skeptical of its cleanliness. I was pleasantly surprised as my boyfriend and I opened the door to our room. Everything was super clean, the room was spotless and it was so comfortable! I don't know what people are talking...
