Was here for my son's wedding. I will admit could use an upgrade, but what truly outweighs that is the incredibly friendly staff who were knowledgable and courteous. The owner was an absolute delight. The entire staff from bartenders, wait staff and housekeeping was incredibly friendly. Bring beach towels to the pool, as they do not supply towels for the...

The staff and service at Doolan's were wonderful, but the facility is in bad need of renovation. The event space was nice, but the rooms seem to have been last updated in the early nineties - even the television was old. I was not offended to be staying here as part of the event I was attending, but I wouldn't... More

The hotel is average, could use a bit of an upgrade, but perfect for what we were looking for, a quick weekend away. They have a nice pool. The place was clean. The rooms have refrigerators. The staff very friendly and very willing to help if you need anything. They have a huge parking lot. A nice breakfast is included.

You will hate it if you are looking for new on the beach,a large sceen TV and many amenities. You will like it if yu are looking for good value ,comfortable beds, a hot breakfast, pleasant & helpful staff and... More

I think this is the best value at the shore. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an OLD motel but they make improvements every year. It’s also very clean. The linens were updated since our last stay. There was a cute little row boat shelf thing in the bathroom. They have a tiny flat screen TV; seriously my husband’s computer monitor... More

This venue has seen better days. My family and Friends stayed there for a wedding and were disgusted with the rooms. My niece and daughter in law had dirty sheets- stains and hair - and the rooms were old and musty smelling. To get to her room, my daughter in law had to go outside and down a few steps.... More

Our stay was spilt between two rooms as they could not book us for our full stay in just one, so we experienced rooms in both the “main” building (translation the older section) and a room in the pool section (newer but still very old). In the main building the room was dingy and dirty with a strong mildew smell.... More

We visited Doolan's Shore Club in June 2016 for a wedding for a one night stay. As someone who hasn't spent much time at or around the Jersey Shore, I must admit I was a bit surprised when we pulled up to a very old school "motel" type place. I wasn't expecting exterior room entry! My understanding is that there... More

Attended a wedding on Saturday June 25th. The food good, services good, entertainment good and of course the people great. Stayed over night in a room on the parking lot side. I honestly believe the rooms have not been upgraded in 30 years except for a small flat screen TV. I would not recommend staying there unless you check out... More

Came here for a wedding on a Saturday night....free valet upon arrival which is a nice touch. The venue itself is very outdated, it badly needs a good remodel. Bathrooms are poorly located far away from the hall and they should provide you with a map so that you can find them. Upon arriving, cocktail hour was not ready yet... More
