I've stayed here a few times. I like it here but it could and should be so much better. I'm fascinated by the ongoing drama with the manager, the most recent being that he actually called the police on a guest for no good reason. There are many negative reviews featuring him. During a visit I asked him a question. He would not even deign to look at me when answering. The staff are pleasant but seem to do as little as possible. I walked into the breakfast room and three staff members were sitting there on their phones. The pool seems always to be dirty. I sat on the beautiful porch one evening and had to listen to the person on desk duty, who sat on the side porch steps, having a phone conversation. I can't believe the owners of the condos don't read the reviews. The staff needs to be more professional.

Let me say that again, if you stay at The Hewitt Wellington and find the service or your room unsatisfactory, and complain to the manager Matt, you will have to answer to the POLICE! I had booked room 18 a few months ago for a 3-day weekend stay in July. Knowing that most Spring Lake hotels are outdated I called the front desk ahead of our stay, and asked if room 18 had been remodeled. I was assured that it was. Upon checking in I found our room not to have been remodeled nor to be sanitary. There were greasy and questionable stains on the sofa, curtains and bed. After my initial complaint about multiple issues with room 18 the on-duty front desk assistant manager Bridget did not apologize for this inconvenience however, offered a discount upon checking out. On July 24, 2022 I began the checkout process at approximately 11:15 am. Bridget handled the matter until Matt the manager arrived. Bridget offered me a $40.00 discount for my trouble. When I pointed out that $40.00 was not a significant discount on a $1,200 bill, I was instructed to speak to Matt. I began in a very friendly tone telling Matt the issues with the room: -Questionable stains -Nobody cleaned our room the entire stay -The mattress on the sofa had springs sticking out and was extremely uncomfortable. I was in significant pain after sleeping on it -Miscommunication about the room being remodeled Matt proceeded to cut me off. The on-duty manager did not allow or want to hear further from a guest, instead he offered to print out the definition of the word remodeled. I declined. He then said “the customer is not always right”. He said he wasn’t going to offer any further discounts and that if I did not like the hotel I should leave at once. On my calm remark that a manager shall not talk to a customer in such a rude way, Matt called the police to escort me from the hotel for talking in the lobby. Allow me to repeat this unbelievable occurrence, the on duty manager in the hospitality industry decided to call the police on a guest speaking and voicing genuine concerns. I am bewildered at this hotel’s complete lack of service, mistreatment and abhorrent behavior by management.

BEAUTIFUL Hotel!! The staff were so efficient, helpful and nice!! The room we had was PERFECT. Nice, heated swimming pool too. Short drive to the beach approximately 2 and 1/2 blocks away with plenty of parking so we were able to drive there with our beach chairs and blanket. Can't say enough about how lovely this Hotel is and we will be back for sure!!

I checked into the Hewitt Wellington on Monday, June 13th, 2022 at approximately 10 p.m. The front desk was closed and it is important to note that the lights were off. I could not see the notice on the darkened desk that gave the after-hours help number. Contrary to what Mr. Johnson, the manager, later claimed, there were no other notices in the reception area for the after-hours phone number. There was an envelope with my room key on the desk. Unfortunately, the key was not for the suite that I reserved, but for a smaller room. The result was I had to sleep on the floor that night as I gave the bed to my daughters. Next morning, the front desk clerk admitted the hotel's mistake and was very apologetic and helpful. The first chance that I had to speak to the manager, Mr. Johnson, was on Wednesday. I informed Mr. Johnson of the hotel's mistake and the fact that I had to sleep on the floor Monday night. Mr. Johnson informed me he would only refund me the difference between the price of the small room and the suite for Monday night. In light of the inconvenience caused by the hotel's mistake, I was of the opinion that Mr. Johnson could have done better to redress this. This was and is not about the amount of money involved, but the fact that I wanted some acknowledgement that the hotel had fumbled this situation. Mr. Johnson was unfortunately not apologetic or indeed professional as regards my respectful sharing of the facts with him. When I asked to speak to the owner, I was informed that the Hewitt Wellington was owned by a Home Owners' Association and that Mr. Johnson was where the buck stopped, so to say. Mr. Johnson then offered to take one night off my three night stay, if I left immediately. Again, all I was looking for was a token acknowledgement of the inconvenience caused by the hotel's mistake. Mr. Johnson badly needs a refresher course in Hotel Management 101 and Good Manners. He seems to be of the opinion that he is not answerable to the Home Owners' Association board that hired him, but I will continue to share my experience with the Spring Lake Chamber of Commerce and other appropriate bodies.

We have traveled all over the world, having stayed in hundreds of hotels and rental properties and this was by far the worst bed we have ever encountered. The bed and frame were old, creaky and so soft that it sagged deeply in the middle. We were up all night. We decided to leave early as the hotel could not change our room and we were not going to spend another night in that so-called bed. We were exhausted and could not enjoy our stay in lovely Spring Lake with our family. Very disappointed. This is an expensive hotel, they need to do better.

We visit family on the Jersey Shore every summer. This year we brought my 86-yr-old Mom along and decided to stay at the H-W in Spring Lake. Our stay has been pleasant and comfortable. The room seems generally clean and looks somewhat updated. Aside from the grossly stain-ridden carpet, the accommodations matched what was pictured in the website. Our biggest complaint is the electrical outlets need updating as our plugs kept slipping right out, creating quite the nuisance when trying to charge our devices. The two Samsung TVs are new-ish but the cable package/options are very outdated. WiFi internet is free and works great, however, it is unsecured which in this day and time also seems outdated. Each room has a wall AC unit which keeps the temperature quite comfortable throughout. We were a bit disappointed at the lack of housekeeping; while we appreciate the precaution of minimal people entering our room, we’d appreciate some sort of daily fresh towel exchange and trash removal. And furthermore, if the lack of housekeeping is due to covid precautions then I’d prefer the staff wore masks as well. One desk attendant has quite the productive-sounding cough. Finally, the daily breakfast bar is stocked with ample selection of the store-bought basics … nothing fancy but met our needs. I especially appreciated the hard-boiled eggs. The best part of the H-W is it’s location — a beautiful spot with lake views, easy access for walking around the lake and into the town AND most importantly to me … a quick walk to one of the best beaches on the east coast. Our stay included two beach badges which we used every day! The covered deck of the H-W has rockers and cozy chairs to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and scenic surroundings. The H-W is a no-frills, low-key, casual place to stay in the heart of Spring Lake. It’s perhaps a little overpriced but isn’t everything these days?! If we need a place to stay again in the future, we’d probably look at other options in the area, and also we wouldn’t rule out another stay at the H-W.

The location is perfect. The porch was a perfect place to wind down and relax. A simple breakfast with coffee/tea available every morning. The staff was friendly and accommodating the whole trip. One issue with the door was handled, but needs a permanent fix. We will be back.

Great proximity to beach, Main St, and the lake. Lake has a nice path with playground on one end. Had a very nice stay here with our 1.5 yr old. Would definitely go back. Only complaint is the bed was very stiff.

While this was another but brief stay at the Wellington, nonetheless it was very pleasant and relaxing. The staff was very accommodating, room was clean and comfortable, and the pool was refreshing. Grace, the desk manager, was especially helpful when booking further reservations. Thank you again!
