We have stayed at the Flanders over the last ten years or so. We love it! It's so convenient to the boardwalk & beach. We arrive very early (8AM) and have alway been given beach tags so we can begin our vacation. This year each of our kids brought a friend so we were six total. We made the call... More

I am here now, I am beyond appalled and disgusted. I am in a penthouse suite for almost 1,000.00 per night so I expected at the very least a clean room. The first thing upon entering the room that I saw were the dirty windows leading to the terrace, handprints & smears totally turned me off. Enter the bedroom, I... More

This hotel has incredible beach and boardwalk access. Also, the rooms are very large - we had a bedroom with a king and then a separate kitchen and living room area. 6th floor with a view of the bay and the 9th street bridge. Truly the only beach hotel I have ever stayed in that doesn't have the musty smell... More

This elegant, 91 year old hotel offers a special treat on Thursdays during the summer. White gloves, individual teapots, and savory and sweet treats are part of their delightful afternoon tea. True Victorian charm!

The Flanders Hotel was wonderful. Both my wife and I have agreed that this hotel was one of our top 10 favorites. The inside was lovely and our room spacious enough for my wife, my two kids and myself. The room service was very reliable and our room was always clean when we came back to it. Also its location...

We had a wonderful experience at this old time gem of a hotel that's right on the boardwalk. They've done a nice job maintaining the property while leaving the feel way back in time. I jokingly told my wife that my long-deceased great-grandmother might walk out of one of the shops at any time. We loved the place. The staff... More

I attended a wedding at the Flanders on July 12, and I must say I am used to expecting mediocre food at wedding receptions, but I was not only surprised, I was blown away by the delicious food, excellent service, the beautiful cocktail area at the top of the stairs on the second floor, and the reception room!

I have stayed at the Flanders three times and this was by far the most disappointing visit. We stayed on the fourth floor in room 409 over the Fourth of July weekend. Check in was quick and easy got there at 3pm and up to the room by 3:15. The location of the Flanders is perfect. Right on the boardwalk,... More
