Our family was looking for a place to spend some time at the beach and we discovered this resort. We were a little concerned when looking at the outside of the building, but as soon as we stepped inside we knew it was going to be a very nice week. The lobby is beautiful and they also have an owner's lounge area where you can watch tv or play games. There is also an exercise room, which we didn't use, but it is very nice to have. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, which was very spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed having 2 beds in the second bedroom. I really wish that we had a balcony, but I guess our room was on the wrong side of the hotel. Instead, we had a view of the street and the fire station right across the street. It got a little noisy at times, but not too bad. The room itself was done in a very modern style, and looked like it has been kept up very well, especially for being so close to a beach. Everything was very clean and comfortable. There were some spots in the carpet that looked like cigarette burns, which really concerned me because my son has horrible asthma and is very sesitive to smoke. But, we didn't smell any smoke in the room at all and his asthma didn't have any issues. I talked to the staff and they explained that there is no smoking allowed on that floor of the hotel, which was a relief. The staff were a high point of our trip. The lobby was always very well staffed and everyone that worked there was incredibly friendly and helpful.
The beach was an easy five minute walk from the hotel and was a very nice beach. Unfortunately, when we were there the beach was incredibly crowded at all times. Whenever we would set up, within an hour we would have people on all sides of us, almost on top of us. That would have been okay, but almost always they would start smoking and we would have to move further and further away from the water because of our son's asthma. At that point, it would have been nice to head back to the hotel and hang out at the pool, but the pool was way too small to enjoy. It is literally the smallest pool that I have ever seen. It looks like an over-sized bathtub. Overall, we really enjoyed staying on Brigantine Island. It is a quiet, sleepy area that is nice for families. There isn't much to do after about 9 pm, but we really loved that since we were there for a quiet family vacation. We would love to return, but we are thinking of trying a beach in another location due to the incredible amount of people smoking in this area.
Ask for a room with a view of the ocean so you will get a balcony and avoid the street and fire stat...
