Dear MoMc, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. Posted at the Front Desk is a 3 foot sign indicating that the hotel is in fact under construction. Additionally, the entire section of the building in which they are working is locked off to avoid any guest from wandering into the construction area. There are... More

Nice facility, but what most impressed me was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. "Continental" breakfast was more than that. Coffee was fabulous. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Easy on and off the Garden State Parkway, too.

Nothing special here, but nothing really bad either... Older building, last renovation I would guess was maybe 5 years ago. Threadbare carpet along the threshold to the bathroom, one of my pet peeves. Room was a good size and very clean. HVAC worked well but did not have a constant-on setting, which I prefer for white noise that blocks out... More

I've been to this hotel 2 times in the last couple of months and both times the room was very clean. The bed is extremely comfortable and it was a king size bed so there was lots of room for me and my boyfriend. The internet has a great connection and it is secure and quiet. I would recommend this... More

If your room number matches the pick 3 you win $ 50.00. Pretty cool! Everything in our room was unplugged frig and lighting etc. You had to be a contortionist to plug everything in. Staff was very nice! Breakfast tables should have been bused some guests were slobs and just left their trash on the table.

The hotel in general is about 40+ years old. Management is in process of renovating, including converting to non-smoking, but has a long way to go! The rooms were clean but not spic n span and there was still a linger of cigarette smoke throughout the hallways. The guest washers/dryers were in excellent condition however and the continental breakfast was... More

We book 2-3 rooms at the Best Western Leisure Inn each Thanksgiving when our family visits. The staff is most helpful, the accommodations as well as the breakfast are good, and the overall value is excellent. I recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed.

Given the hotels proximity to the shore and the busy area that it is located I would have expected the hotel to have been updated. The rooms are not appealing in decor and need to be overhauled. The amenities in the room were sparse and there was not any conditioner in the bathroom. The lights by the bed flickered throughout... More
