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Went here for a wedding....the rooms were seriously outdated.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

Wedding on the beach with reception at Doolans was very nice. The reception was great , good food, music and working staff were very professional . Stayed over night but found the rooms to be in need of remodeling. Carpets were old and stained, really need to be replaced . Really did not think room was worth what they charged.

We had visted Doolans in the past and actually liked it very much until we attended a wedding there. They showed us our room and I could have cried. The smell was horrible as soon as you opened the door. There was a big hole in the wall behind the door and also a hole in the wall in the... More

This is the fourth year that my wife and I have vacationed at Doolan's and we are spoiled. Whenever we vacation in another area we are always comparing it to Doolan's. Which isn't fair to the other establishments. They just can't provide the family atmosphere that Susan and Joanie and their staff does. They have a top notch restaurant, entertainment,... More

Dated motel style, pretty beat up place. Very expensive for what it is. Only saving grace is being near, not on (a couple miles away from) the shore and the hilarity of being in a place filled with a 70s-80s something crowd that has been coming to the same motel for the last 60 years. Maybe it was nice in... More
