No wonder the food is fantastic and they know how to throw a party. Ate there on various occasions other than the wedding Stakes...beef...appetizers...so very good Rooms are huge, clean, multiple, tvs, fridge, places to... More

Was in town to see a friends band. Found Doolan's by accident. Stopped in and reserved a room. Hotel was decorated for Christmas. Looked great. Staff was outstanding. Rooms were a bit dated but upgraded big time and huge. Giant tv, a cold fridge and nice and dark in the morning. Breakfast rocked. I will be back soon.

The resort has a beautiful setting in the back with pool. The walk-in entrance is decorated very festively. We had continental breakfast with a good selection of breakfast goodies. We also enjoyed our bartender Ron and... More

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 The rooms were extremely outdated and are in drastic need of remodeling.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...
