“Right on the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

I've stayed here a few times during the off-season. Reasonably priced for that time-frame. Nice hotel but nothing fancy... it's a beach hotel - a place to put your clothes and rest your head at night.

Room Tip: There's also a 2nd set of room across the street from the main hotel. Ask when booking if you...

Typical shore type motel-nothing fancy, but served the purpose. Was clean and quiet. A bit far away from the town of Beach Haven-so not so easy to walk to things. I'm sure it would be different in the summer.

I can't believe this place has any good ratings. I read about their "Bait and switch", promising a room on the back side of their hotel and then placing you across the street in their annex. It is 1AM as I write this, I've been trying to get my family to sleep since 11, we have called the office 3 times, they came over one timem the walls a paper thin, not only do we hear the conversations as if we were at a keg party in a college frat house, we hear every toilet flush, every footstep and every noise from every room around us. We even heard the knock of the manager after the first call to the desk, they obviously ignored the subsequent calls.

Pros: None

Cons: Baiti and switch room booking, they don't tell you about the building across the road
paper thin walls - I can hear the toilets flush in the rooms next to us, below us and on each side of the rooms below us
Management ignores these problems,

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!

flippo147, Manager at Spray Beach Inn, responded to this review, October 22, 2013
Guest referred to "bait and switch, promising a room on the back side of their hotel and then placing you across the street in their annex". Guest booked on-line, where the room description reads: "Standard rooms on the 1st or 2nd floor in the Atlantic Avenue Building which is steps away from the main building and beach." The night manager went over after the first call, and asked the offending party to close the windows and quiet down. After the second call he went back over, stood by the window and listened to them talk. Because they were only talking at normal volume levels, no further action was required.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night over the Columbus Day weekend. We had a third floor room, not far from the elevator. The room was very clean and updated. The front desk was extremely helpful and customer- friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant (only customers) and it was fine. The bar tender was friendly and talkative. The waitress was attentive. Free continental breakfast was in the restaurant and although limited, was fine. Someone checked on us from the front desk to be sure we were taken care of. Although the place was pretty empty, I would recommend it and if we need to return to the area in the future, I would certainly stay there. The cost was very reasonable.

Enjoyed everything, start to finish...from arrival, the front desk was most helpful , then dinner At the Spray Beach, both Friday and Saturday nights , was excellent. The view from the comfortable bar and dining room, was awesome. Dining in the oceanfront patio was spectacular. We all had asked our waiter to send compliments to the kitchen..our meals were great. Breakfast on the patio could not be beat! The staff is outgoing, friendly and very professional. We had been here during the summer, and some even remembered us. the ambience and friendliness is hard to beat. We shall return!

Room Tip: 3rd floor oceanfront is the best.

My adult daughters and I stayed in early September. We were on the third floor right next to the elevator and I was worried it would be noisy, but I only heard the elevator once. The room had no outside area but we were happy with that because it felt very private. Gorgeous view from our window right out onto the ocean. The bathroom has been recently redone and the rugs and bedspread were new as well. We ate breakfast in the restaurant twice and the food was very good. We had great drinks at the outside bar looking onto the beach. Yes, the beach is a cliff so getting down and up was a bit of a pain, but even with my arthritis I was able to do it. The pool is shallow but we didn't mind . It was Rosh Hashanah so I worried the restaurant and pool would be crowded but even though the hotel was full it never felt crowded. I am very very picky and not easy to please but we had a great time and want to go back next month !

Room Tip: Poolside deluxe with queen beds and great ocean view

We had a great ocean front room but they are asking way too much for this place. The place sorely needs to be redone. I agree with the smell of mildew in the carpets and just the general decay of the building. Even the outside bar was closed.
