This small (2 dozen or so rooms) "boutique" hotel can be described as modern with a strong dose of "retro." Very clean and very beautiful! Much thought and planning went into the design of the rooms and the decorating details. The staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby/game room was comfortable and inviting. We only stayed for one night... More

Would recommend but pricey! Large rooms, friendly staff. Not on beach but for $15 day you can use their beach club which provided lounge chairs, towels and umbrellas and you can buy food at your chair. Food was really good! Located right at the village pier for great shopping and restaurants.

This hotel is completely over priced considering how little you get. I was new to the Long Branch area, although quite familiar with the beach towns more south, so some friends and I thought we would give the Bungalow a try. We heard it was a trendy boutique hotel within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in Long Branch.... More

The hotel is clean and beautiful. That is where the good ends. The staff is not helpful at all. It's simply "check-in", "check-out", take payment and that's it. Did you know you can use a nearby gym for a small fee? Me either. Did you know that you can use the beach club they also own for a fee? Me... More

This is a really beautiful hotel that is well decorated, clean, spacious, very serene. It is a great place to stay and very convenient. The staff is very friendly and even gave us a glass of Prosecco upon our arrival! My only complaint is that the website shows a pool as if that is on the grounds of the property.... More
