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

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 The venue itself is very outdated, it badly needs a good remodel.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

I went during the off season. I was supposed to stay 3 nights but had to cut it short due to the approaching blizzard. The front desk staff were very helpful and couldn't be nicer. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. When I'm back in the vicinity I will definitely stay there again.

A group of friends made this hotel part of our "Pub Crawl" experience in December. Wow! What a beautiful place; everything was decorated for Christmas. The tree in the lobby was just gorgeous as were the other trees and decorations throughout the first floor; everything was so beautiful. The off season price was under $100 and included breakfast. We had... More

Our room was a beautiful suite with two baths right by the pool. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious. The location in Spring Lake was ideal. Spring lake is a beautiful little town with great shopping. And near the ocean.

My girlfriend's birthday was sneaking up on me and I had not gotten her a gift yet. I remembered her saying she had not gone to the ocean all summer. Aha- I'll get her the Ocean! I remembered loving Spring Lake and it's less chaotic Jersey Shore. She had never been there so it was perfect. It was a last... More

Went here for a wedding....the rooms were seriously outdated. Bathrooms had old sinks and cabinets...rusty shower curtain bar....smelled musty....old linens.....and shakey air conditioning. It needs a serious upgrade for what they charge. On the other hand the wedding facilities were pretty nice....they have a great room for cocktail hour...and the ballroom was large and also very nice. Service was good...especially... More
