Last minute trip was great! First time calling hotel, they were booked! I couldn't understand why but they only have 24 rooms and have a group staying with them. I called back for recommendations and they had a cancellation. We couldn't find the hotel at first because it blends in with the rest of Pier Village, but with the lights... More

Again, we apologize for the... More

We were in need of a vacation this summer- due to family issues we were unable to plan ahead, nor were we sure we would actually be able to show, which made peak summer travel plans nearly impossible. Thanks to the very professional, empathetic general manager of this hotel, we were able to book a two day beach getaway. To... More

We loved this place and its cool interior, lofty apartments and unique funky bar. Our only complaint was that the bar wasn't staffed all the time but appreciate it was out of season by the time we left. If you are holidaying in the area then this is the hotel for you! Although no breakfast and/or facilities for coffee on... More

This hotel was like staying at a frat house. We (my husband and I) had the unfortunate opportunity of staying over labor day weekend. Our hotel room had makeup smeared on the walls, the toilet paper holder had been ripped from the wall, the shelf in the shower was hanging off as it too had been pulled from the wall,... More

A small but cool hotel in an area where hotels range from a big resort hotel next door and several chain hotels in the area. Though it's not a "full service" hotel, none of the competition is as new, modern or fun as Bungalow. The general atmosphere is laid back and even the least expensive rooms are quite big. The...

Beautiful modern design close to the beach. Defenitely not on the beach nor will you get an ocean view. If you are exclusivley looking for an ocean front this is not it. However, if you are looking for cleanliness, sleek modern design absolutely. It's the best Jersey Shore has to offer in my opinion. It needs room service! The bakery... More
