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.

Doolans Shore Club offers everything nice clean rooms, pool, great hospitality and delicious gourmet meals at a great price. Was there for 2 days a few weeks ago and can't wait to go back again in July and hopefully again in sept..

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.

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

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.

I recently stayed at the Doolan’s for 2 nights as part of a weekend getaway for my finance’s birthday from 9/29 to 10/1 and we had a really nice time there. 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
