the inn keepers and there family were great. The hotel was very clean and all of our needs were meet without a problem. We felt like we were home. Every one ven the other guests were very friendly. I would love to spend more time there but had to go home. The Albatross Hotel is a place you realy need to check into. A happy camper who would go back again..Cliffwood NJ

We were made to feel so welcome at the Albatross Hotel. The owner allowed us to check in early so we could have extra time at the beach. Cold bottled water and beach towels were provided to take to the beach. After check-out , we were able to return to the hotel to change into our travel clothes. Our room was clean and quiet, and although we had a shared bath, there was a powder room right outside of our bedroom.
Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit including ripe strawberries and melon and yummy croissants and muffins.
There was plenty of parking in front of the hotel and even right near the beach (we were there on a Monday and Tuesday).

Two adjacent properties are scheduled for demolition--once that is completed, the view from the street should improve. Not all the shops on nearby Main Avenue are open in the evening, although the restaurants and ice cream shops are. (Day's had key lime pie ice cream that was outstanding!)

  • Liked — l proximity to beach--friendly and helpful owners
  • Disliked — my daughter missed a tv in the room

I had a really great experience staying at the Albatross Hotel and plan future vacations there. It was a great atmosphere for my family and kids, which is hard to find in a bed and breakfast, considering most wont accept kids. I had previously stayed at the hotel before the new ownership and had my doubts staying there again until I walked in and saw this absolutely beautifully designed old victorian style lobby. I found the staff pleasant and very helpful and even offered to give me a quick tour of the entire hotel. The bathrooms were spotless and the rooms I saw were beautifully decorated. Coming from someone who was here before and after the new ownership, this has really turned into a great B&B!
