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.

My wife and I stayed at the Bungalow for a long weekend, and boy were we happy. It is a few seconds walk to the beach at Pier Village in Long Branch NJ, and all of the clubs, shops and restaurants that come with it. (There is a Gold's Gym on the corner that welcomes guests) Wifi is free and... More

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

After spending the day in Asbury, my partner and I took the ride over to the Bungalow for a mid day check in. We were greeted by Don, a very personable, genuine fellow, who welcomed us with such a smile. We were so impressed with the decor, location, and warmth that we decided to upgrade our room. Let me just... 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.

very friendly staff, ultra modern furnishings that looked great but were uncomfortable to sit in. The air conditioner did not cool the room, when I complained they said it would be fixed by the time I returned from a walk but it wasn't. They were full so I couldn't switch rooms.

First of all I was BLOWN AWAY by the décor of this hotel. It has this really cool, chic design. The rooms themselves are very comfy and decorated in sort of a white-washed way, with some cute pops of color. The white walls/floors/ and bedding give the room a very clean look but manages to maintain a welcoming warmth. I... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Bungalow - the first time being in March of 2012. The rooms are well-appointed, and the bed is EXTREMELY comfortable, but there are some details that just aren't quite right. The "rain shower" shower head is simply too much water pressure to be pleasurable. There was an overly fragrant air fesherener smell... More
