My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Bungalow Hotel this past weekend. To have walked out of the bitter cold and into probably the sexiest lobby we've ever been was the first of many two thumbs-up! We were greeted by very friendly staff (Suzana, Don and Anna were awesome), check in was super quick and with... More

This past spring I got the surprise of a lifetime when my love asked me to marry him at the Bungalow in Long Branch, NJ!

The small boutique hotel in Pier Village is so nice and has such good service, I had to review it. The wonderful and warming gas fireplace in our room was much needed in this frigid weather we have right now (January, 2015.) The lobby is cozy too with a fireplace, vintage foosball table and pool table...so fun and different from... More

The relatively new -- or looks like new Bungalow Hotel had a welcoming lobby, with unique "adult blocks" for furniture. The staff, Ana, was very helpful. My siblings, cousins and I were down for a funeral and the hotel was extremely accommodating and sensitive to our scheduling needs. They kept the hotel bar, which was very casual, run by Chris...
