“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

One nice thing about Hilton Hotel properties are their consistency. The Hilton Garden Inn Lakewood is no exception. This motel is typical of what I expect from a Hilton Garden Inn, Clean, spacious rooms and good service. Breakfast is a combination of Buffett and cooked to order. Service and food were good; however, it is not free unless you are a Diamond Member. The exercise room had a good assortment of equipment and it was in good working order. The staff was efficient and courteous. The only problem I had was the entrance. It is a bit tricky thanks to the New Jersey street system where you have to turn right and do a loop around in order to turn left or make a U turn. Not the fault of the Motel, but a sign by the driveway would be helpful to see where it is.

The group of people at this hotel is absolutely amazing. From the GM Michael to the Assistant GM Karen to Jessica at the front desk to the always amazing Louie, they made weathering "Sandy" warm, comfortable and couldn't have been more accommodating. The hotel is wonderful, clean, great rooms, it was like being at home with this group.
Thanks!

A group of us has been staying here for the past nine months on and off for a project in the area. The Hilton Garden Inn has always accommodated last minute itinerary changes and have always made our group a priority. It's very appreciated as long stays from home always take a toll and having a stable place to come "home" to at the end of a 16 hour days has really made a difference in my efforts to complete a difficult project.

The front desk always greats us with a bottle of water, a smile, and if we aren't arriving too late in the day there is always cookie treat or some freshly made green tea. Most mornings/afternoons/evenings we share a laugh too. I know if that if any colleague of mine wanders into the hotel in need of some assistance I know they will take care of them!

Breakfast has a variety of food, and it's all very good and well presented. The rooms are clean, modern and good enough size to continue to get some work done even when you feel the day should have been over hours ago.

The entire staff is outstanding, and I will always stay at this hotel whenever I am in the area. Keep up the great establishment, and again thank you for being so accommodating.

Room Tip: I've stayed on every floor and all have been good. Although the 4th floor on facing the backsid...

I have the pleasure of staying at this Hilton garden inn regularly. The front desk staff is amazing! Very friendly! In fact I feel like family when I come here. Karen Kraig, Camille Passalacqua, Alexia, the red head young girl are the greatest! I received some fresh made hot chocolate while passing by. They always address me by name. No matter how busy they are they stop and greet everyone. This just the front desk staff. The team that cleans the rooms are so friendly. They are into every detail. This location goes above and beyond. If your in the area your crazy if you don't book at this location. One great thing I like as well is the staff doesn't change. So that means they love what they do and they care. As always room was clean, bed was comfortable, and you have longhorn for dinner and Starbucks on the way out in the morning. You also can have breakfast at the hotel which they do a fantastic job as well. I love it here!!

Room Tip: Stay here!!!!

I booked a room for a wedding and the Hilton reservation hotline messed up my reservation. The hotel was sold out for the night due to the wedding taking place. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and went out of their way to find us a comparable place nearby and provide us transportation when needed so we were still a part of the wedding functions. The entire situation was no fault of their own but they helped us in every way possible (including being willing to stay an hour later to make sure we were taken care of). They could not have been nicer or more helpful.

This hotel is a real gem. Clean, quiet and very comfortable. Staff are pleasant and very friendly.
Offers room service from Longhorn which is next to the hotel. Lobby bar for after hours makes this a very convenient place to unwind.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the back side for even a quieter experience

Overall, our stay here was just fine. Room was comfortable for the two of us and well maintained the whole weekend. Staff at the front desk was great with any requests that we had.

We had a King room, which was pretty good size. It had a nice chair and ottoman to sit in while watching the flatscreen. Bathroom was your standard hotel bathroom and nothing special, but it got the job done.

It's a decent ways away from the beach and all (15-20 minutes), but there are a ton of places around there to eat and go to (mall, shops, etc). The breakfast buffet/cook to order is a little pricey, but that is just my opinion on it. We had breakfast at a diner down the road for about the same price as one of us having breakfast there.

I would stay there again for the same reason, but if really wanting to head to the beach, would get something closer.
