Fell in love with this hidden hotel located in Pier Village. My friends and I wanted to get away without going so farrr away! This was just the place! Pier Village has an array of options and the staff was amazing in guiding us to all the area had to offer (especially the Avenue! The food was delicious and they... More

Located a block from the boardwalk in Long Branch, so unfortunately no beach views. 24 rooms. Very modern design by bravolebrities Robert and Cortney Novogratz (featured on Bravo TV's "Nine by Design" and in their book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1579654991?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1579654991&linkCode=xm2&tag=washpost-travel-20).

My only experience with this establishment is based on a reservation made and cancelled. I booked a suite for two nights for this week, but had cancelled it eight months ago after reading some disappointing reviews. At 12:30am, today, our family was awakened by that "middle of the night call" we all fear brings terrible news. Fortunately, it was only... More

I stayed here during one of the several snow storms. All I have to say is this place is fantastic. The lobby was something out of an HGTV show, so elegant yet trendy. Big focal point is the floor-to-ceiling picture of a Queen Elizabeth II stamp, made entirely of ivory buttons no less. The room was comfortable. All white with... More

We stayed here for two nights in July 2013. We'd travelled from Princeton as part of a tour of NY/NJ and it was easy to find. You can park outside the property for a short period but you have to move your vehicle to the car park opposite (only about twenty steps). This was a really cool hotel; one of... More

Thank you for sharing your experince. As a guest of the hotel, it is wonderful to access and experience Le Club private beach club. Some of the benefits are not having to bring towels, beach chairs and coolers to a beach. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Bungalow and hope to welcome you back again soon! More

On a snowy December evening, my significant other and I needed an escape from the rest of the world even though we live within a half hour.. This little boutique hotel fit the bill.
