We booked the room last minute and were so happy we did! The location is very close to the boardwalk and walking distance to several great little restaurants! The room was large and had wonderful amenities including a make up remover wipe which came in handy!!! (I hate using soap on my very sensitive eyes!) The shower was fabulous, loved... More

What a pleasant surprise the Bungalow ended up being. Although the website is adequate in giving you the basic information, it definitely falls short in showing the whole picture, imagine that. The hotel is actually nicer than depicted on their website, as opposed to my past experiences in picking a hotel via the internet. The rooms are much larger than... More

I can not say enough about my family's recent stay at the Bungalow! The room was gorgeous. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. Julien, the manager, made sure to give my young son a sand pail and shovel as well as a pair of sunglasses when we arrived! My son loved the gifts! The staff, Jasmine and Anna, were... More

We went to Long Branch for a weekend to visit my daughter who lives in Pier Village (right next to the Bungalow). We took another couple with us so we decided to stay in the 2 bedroom "Pipeline" suite at the Bungalow ($1,050/night). First...it should not be advertised as a two-bedroom suite as there is ONE bedroom and a 2nd... More

Stayed at Bunaglow this past weekend and would highly recommend staying there for the following: -Rooms are kept immaculate, with bright white interior. -I stayed in the two room "Rain Man" suite, which was impressive. The master bedroom was the side of a studio apartment! Request room 305. -Staff was fantastic, especially Julian during check in and all the font... More

Thank you so much for the Great Review. We are a small team so it means so much when we are able to look after you. That should be the deciding point when choosing a boutique hotel versus a resort. Looking forward to your return visit Best regards Julian More

I stayed here in March and had a wonderful experience. The rooms are very roomy and pretty. The hotel is within walking distance of nice shops and restaurants. I got the impression that this hotel and area likely has a different (night club) atmosphere during the summer time, but it was relaxing and wonderful in March. I would love to... More

The room was nice, very modern, and clean. The only complaint—the room was pretty noisy—people in the hallway and loud cars driving by at night. The bed was pretty hard/firm and the pillows were super soft and lacked support. One of the most uncomfortable beds I’ve slept in. It was nice to use the hotel’s bikes to cruise around (no... More

My husband and I got a last-minute room here for a Saturday night get-away. It's not right on the beach, but it's a cute, boutique style hotel within a short walk of the beach and a lot of restaurants. It has a bar with reasonable prices if not the most experienced bartender. We really liked the design of the room... More
