Hurricane Irene forced me out of my beachside trailer so I bid on a hotel inland and got the Doubletree. (50$). First impression the hotel lobby and ground were beautiful. Ponds and walkways, beautiful tasteful artwork ect. Delicious cookies at check in. Room very nice with a fridge, crabtree and evelyn bath products, Wolfgang puck coffee and real liquid creamers, large flat screen TV.I would have liked a few more TV channels but good selection. Great pillow top beds and soft sheets. Very clean except a few tub hairs-I almost always see at least one in hotel tubs. There is a nice Italian restaurant and a pub serving lighter fare. Hit tub was not hot but had excellent jets (and by not being hot I lasted 90 minutes which was nice). Indoor pool is small but outside one is very big. Service was excellent. My room leaked (hurricane) and they moved me to another room and gave me breakie and dinner meal vouchers as an apology which was great. My friend was down the hall and she had a similar nice experience with her room. In all, the hotel lobby and halls looked like something from a 300+$ a night hotel, the rooms similarly high standards, and excellent amenities. It's near Rutgers and several restaurants and has a nice woodsy feel to it. The retail price is around 90 which is already an excellent value-getting it as a winning bid made it all the better:)
