Apparently, Doolan's specializes in senior citizen gatherings. Nothing wrong with that. We were there for an Italian festival and had a great time. Live band and good dance music- including electric slide, Sinatra type vocalist who was quite good and an Italian comic who was very appealing. The food was okay- plenty of roast sirloin and edible. That being said:... More

This place was so filthy and sleazy I was stunned that it was in Spring Lake. Given the area, I expected better. This place is stuck in the 90's, which was probably the last time it was a good spot to go to. Now it's just tacky and unclean. The bartender was pretty good, but the food was awful and... More

My first time at Doolan's was when I was 17 years old. I'm turning "60" in a couple of months. I have been coming down here that many years.And never stayed anywhere else. It has always been my favorite "Ever" hotel in Spring Lake. My family and I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff/Management is. Add to this,... More

Pleasently surprised by the excellent service, friendly staff, great restaurant at this Monmouth County shore classic. Very good value in the fall, winter, and spring, and fair pricing even in the summer for such a convenient location.

We took advantage of a Travel Zoo special for a 2 night stay that included a $50 dinning credit at their restaurant as well as discounted room rate. I... More

We spent a couple of night's at Doolan's Shore Club. The hotel staff and facilities were great. We will definitely stay there again when we go to Spring Lake. Spring Lake is great, too. Nice quiet beach and several nice golf courses, including par 3 courses.

I would go for dinner, bar or banquet, would not stay in motel. The bar and wait staff are outstanding; could not be better. The owner is present and hands on. We stayed for a wedding and found it an excellent location with easy access to beach, town, and highways.

During my most recent stay, September 6-8, 2013, I stayed in a newly renovated suite by the pool with two bathrooms, a separate living room with a... More
