My husband, 13 year old stepson and I stayed for 7 nights in June visiting nearby family. We had booked a room with two beds and added a mini-fridge ($15 per night). On arrival they only had a room with a king bed. That room was not very nice. Walk-in shower was dingy, there was a pair of pants hanging in the closet when we got there, wallpaper messed up in places, furniture was old and pretty banged up, and the remote didn't work. They moved us the next day to the correct room type and that room was much nicer in every way. HOWEVER THE SO-CALLED AIR CONDITIONING HARDLY WORKED IN EITHER ROOM. We kept the thermostat constantly set to 65 and it never got cold....barely cool. The restaurant downstairs was very good and very reasonably priced. THEY DO NOT OFFER COFFEE IN THE LOBBY. My husband is a smoker and of course had to go outside the front entrance to smoke. He asked about coffee and was told: "We are NOT a Holiday Inn Express". So I guess they aren't allowed to offer free coffee??? The indoor pool closed extremely early at 8pm (before dark!) which was very inconvenient for our son. He was able to use the pool maybe twice the whole time we were there. We visited family in the day and he wanted to swim when we returned to the hotel but it was usually after 8. Ice machines only on every other floor so you if you weren't on that floor it was quite a trip for ice. Our stay for a week was over $1300 including taxes, not including refrigerator. I felt that was pretty high for a hotel on a highway. No special location, but yet it's the only hotel in Manahawkin. Most of the desk people and restaurant people we dealt with were very nice and helpful, although they were sometimes overwhelmed since they were often working alone and there were 3 wedding parties there during our 7 night stay.
