We had a Marriot Hotel certificate so we decided to use it at Jersey Shore. We've been trying to book any room at the Monmouth and Ocean county on a Saturday and finally this hotel have opening. The Marriott Residence Inn is my favorite hotel because the rooms are big, comes with kitchen and all the things you need to make meal. This hotel just open in March. Everything looks new and clean. Check-in was quick and effiicent. My room was on the fourth floor overlooking nice golf resort. The hotel has free buffet breakfast with make your own waffle, breakfast tacos. The swimming pool and hot tub is nice. It is about 5 miles from ocean Avenue which you can easily reach Ocean Grove, Asbury Park, Bradley Beach, Point Pleaseant. There is so much to do and good places to eat at the shore. This hotel is a great choice if you are willing to drive to the beach.
