Doolan's Shore Club is a great value (if bought through Travel Zoo), but in great need of updating and renovating. Very dated but clean. The service personnel are very nice, especially the food servers and the bartender, Ron. Ron was very busy, yet kept up with the pace providing excellent service and a friendly smile. My wife and I very... More

Our friend had their wedding reception at Doolan's Shore Club. Since they had rooms available ($130/night for 2 full beds) for wedding guests, we decided to book there rather than drive to a nearby Marriott (my hotel preference). That was a mistake. The rooms were extremely outdated and are in drastic need of remodeling. We had 2 full beds in... More

In 2012, my wife and I first vacationed at Doolan's Shore Club and we were so impressed that I wrote a review entitled, "One Big Happy Family" which was then and still is very much the truth. We returned last August, this past July 4th week and we just returned from another fabulous week. And I might add, we booked... More

Stayed here for a wedding. The wedding was great, absolutely beautiful. This place is so stuck in time. I hope our room is not the after the update. The bed was horrible, uncomfortable, the worst night sleep. The sink was clogged. The bathroom was so small. The room was big though. Thank goodness the breakfast was free because I wouldn't... More

If you want a vacation you will be thrilled with go to Doolans in Spring Lake. The pool is the best anywhere in the Jersey Shore. My husband and I eat out quite often and Doolans has the best food by far! The owners, Susan and Joanie, and the staff can not do enough to make your stay wonderful. Did... More

We had a great time last week at Doolan's in Spring Lake!! My husband and I met in Spring Lake many years ago and we go back to visit now and again to Doolan's. Our room (king size bed) was so lovely and done in a Coastal Living motif...seashells, starfish and it was COMFORTABLE. We really enjoyed our stay and... More

Stayed two days for our son's wedding. The hotel is stuck in time...needs major updating! The A/C squeeked all night long. Breakfast was good. There was a couple fighting in the room next to ours, so I called the front desk at 4:00 a.m. only to receive an answering machine.

Stayed for two days. The weather wasn't the greatest but room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was okay- continental. Dinner in the Grille was excellent. The pool was very nice and convenient to all rooms. Weather did not permit us to go to beach but the town is quite nice. Would go back again.
