The Bungalow is a great luxury boutique hotel. The rooms are extremely spacious and the decor is very unique. There's a fridge in every room that can be used to store food and drink. The location is great as it's close to most things in Long Branch. What sets this place apart in my opinion, is the service and the... More

We stayed at the Bungalow during the peak July period. On the positive side, this is a nice hotel in a great location, one block from the beach. The room we stayed in was big, clean and comfortable. If all you need is a room, this hotel is just fine. There are no other frills and from what it seems... More

Dear Michal, Thank you for staying with us and I hope that you will return to prove to you that we do care. We do have limited services compared to a full service Hotel, but have lots of other charms. We do have limited staffing at certain times of the day but enough to look after our guests. Please do...

Great little hotel a block from the beach. Rooms are clean and roomy with high ceilings. Donald at the front desk was very helpful, outside patio has a great gas fireplace as do all the rooms. The lack of a pool is the only thing missing but for $25 the private beach club with rooftop pool a block away was... More

This is a great hotel. I've never been somewhere where I loved the smell so much!It's so clean, the decor is unique and the night was quiet. Its not going to be the cheapest hotel but you won't forget your stay.

Great bright and airy rooms. Great bathroom with two sinks and "rain-style" shower. Great location. Unfortunate that there is no view of beach but good proximity and parking. No breakfast in hotel was a shame. Very relaxed.

We spent one night at The Bungalow Hotel with our 2 kids (5 y.o. and 2 y.o.). The staff and more importantly the General Manager, Julian, continuously made sure that we were happy with our stay. They were very accomodating with the late check out also which allowed us to have our 2 y.o. have his nap in the room... More

The hotel is amazing, but more importantly the staff. Everyone is attentive , courteous and accommodating . Would stay here again. My one minor concern is that le club has parties 21 and older on Sunday and Monday , and since we were with our 5 year old we couldn't use the facilities for two nights.
