The place is a dump. Non smoking room smelled like a dirty ash tray. Tried to scam additional fees for using a specific credit card. The owner Raj, was arrogant. After seeing the room and the arrogance, we decided not to stay. The owner became quite taunting which is not only unprofessional but completely classless. I would rather sleep in... More

We have been to this place to before and had a better outcome. The overall of the room was filthy. Bedding and tables nightstands were clean. We asked for a non-smoking room and they put us in between two smoking. They also do not have enough handicap parking or decent parking. The lower price from competior websites is a joke... More

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

I am staying hear because of hurricane Sandy and the owners are very nice. I was surprised how clean the bathroom was. The whitest bath tub I ever seen. I will not pay ridiculous prices ever again. Express inn is way worth it! - Bruno P

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
