As an old hotel you have to expect uneven floors, peeling paint and small rooms. In which could all be part of the "charming" experience. However, this hotel fails on cleanliness, maintenance and communication within staff. Unnecessary clutter, sticky dust, dirty floors, rotten floors under carpet and shower stalls, water damage on ceiling and unprofessional service. The owners like to... More

We stayed there the weekend of August 15. The location was great, the owner was super helpful and hospitable. The place is charming and cozy. charming. Our room was very clean as well as the facilities and bathrooms. Breakfast was an added bonus with Bill being very gracious and accommodating. Will definitely be back!

After reserving sight unseen, we asked for our money back and went to the Majestic Hotel. The Albatross website is absolutely deceptive and it is actually very dingy, smells foul, dark inside and the front desk person has an attitude. They are not hospitable at all! Highly recommend that you go elsewhere! Unfortunately, one of our friends had to stay... More

.have already made reservations to go back for the 4th of July. I found this bed and breakfast charming. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Every day of my stay was delightful. It is within walking distance to the beach, shopping and Asbury Park. I plan on staying here whenever I can.

Our room reminded me of room one would get in a boarding house...ceiling had to be 30+ years old...the ugly paneling and dirty looking carpet in the room was probably even older. The shower in the hallway was also old and disgusting. Too much money for such a dump. The breakfast was adequate.

Most B&B are very old some things can not be helped so you have to realize what you are dealing with, yes it may take a few minutes for the water to get warm and reach the 3rd floor...aside from all new plumbing it goes with the territory. The owner was nice...perhaps he has read most of these reviews and... More

It's definitely not worth the money . The whole time we were there I felt like I was back at my parents house. Prior to checking in you would think the air conditioning would have been turned on in the room , well guess what no !!!! It was a sauna . There was no cold water in the shower... More

My road trip of 2.5 hrs was a breeze. Arrived around noon, my room was ready although I wasn't expected until 3 p.m. I was greeted with a place to park out front, a view of the ocean, and a large porch to which I was drawn. My luggage was taken to my room and checked-in. Bill, the owner, was... More

Okay, a few things: 1) To start off with, the owner man had a bit of an attitude. 2) Without telling me when I booked the room for 2 nights, the bathroom on the second floor was broken so, I had to go up the stairs to the third floor (after a leg injury). 3) The 3rd floor shared shower... More

I just spent some time at the Albatross and felt I had to right a review. It was a warm and friendly place where the owner went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met. The second floor porch was a delight to sit and drink my coffee and look out at the ocean. I will... More
