Very cool experience at The Bungalow. Super modern and laidback. I loved everything about this place, from the music in the lobby to the pleasant nature of the people working there to the clean and sleek rooms. My room was called "Aloha" (they have a surf theme!) It was the most inexpensive room but it was huge! I would definitely... More

I have been in the hospitality industry my entire career which makes me very observant as well as critical regarding services received from venues. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to stay at your lovely hotel, but did have the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Smith. He is certainly an asset to your establishment and you are very lucky... More

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.

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
