“Great for a quick trip to town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We only stayed in town for one night and this hotel was great. Clean rooms, lobby area, and gym. Not to far from the beach and lots of retail and restaurants are close by. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were in town for a wedding. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful with everything from making the reservations (part of the wedding group) to checking out. The breakfast was nice. It can get crowded as it is only a few miles from the beaches. There is a "code of conduct" type of form that has to be signed when you check in. This was not a problem, and I did not know of any issues during my stay, so whatever works for them. The rooms were clean and updated.

My whole family and extended family was in town for a family reunion and stayed at this wonderful hotel. Sara, Clint and Melissa at the front desk who were awesome,we came in earlier then check in with our handicap mom and they got our room ready by 1. I would highly recommend this clean ,comfy hotel .Service couldn't have been better from breakfast to checking in all the relatives(which included 10 rooms).Breakfast was way more then a continental from fresh pancakes to ,chobani yogurt ,and oatmeal with all the toppings ,eggs , best bagels . The hotel was in a great location close to everything we needed. I will book there everytime I'm in New Jersey.

Good luck trying to reach the front desk by calling their main number - it will keep on recycling you back to the start, over and over, without reaching a live operator. Also, customer service here was very unwilling to help changing a reservation by one day given an unexpected family development related to a pregnant wife. I'm sorry....if you cannot understand that, you do not deserve more than one star.

Nice clean hotel. Free breakfast was good too. Staff was pretty friendly and the rooms were quality for a holiday in. Pool is small but heated. A lot of parking. Ten minute drive to beach. Enjoyed our night and will return if back in the area again.
