“We loved it!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

My husband and I drove down without a reservation and stumbled upon the Hewitt by accident. We were lucky they had a vacancy. We stayed on the 3rd floor with a private balcony. The view of the lake was fabulous, and you could even see some of the ocean. The room was beautiful, clean, and perfect for a quick romantic get-away. The beach tags were included, and we were able to use the tags until 3:00 the day we checked out. This is a nice policy considering the cost of beach tags down at the shore. ($8-$9 per person per day) The hotel was wonderfully decorated and the grounds were impeccable. We brought our bikes with us so it was a pretty quick ride down to the beach, only about 2 blocks. We had a fantastic time and the staff was friendly and accomodating.

Stay in front room. Hotel has lots of space to hang out: pool, lounges, porch, etc which is nice especially if you have a fair room like I did. Breakfast is not much and not as advertised.

Room Tip: Do not stay in rm 23 in back of hotel. Lots of light but looking out onto a parking lot and back of...

We had a wonderful stay at the Hewitt Wellington. Everything everyone praised was true, the reviews are not exaggerating. My mom, sister and I arrived 5 hours before check in and they made us feel welcome even with the inconvenience. They showed us where to change so we could go lay out by the pool, gave us towels, held onto our bags, and the room was made ready 3 hours early! From there it continued to be just as great, every request was accommodated quickly and kindly, the room was stunning, well kept and comfy. We didn't have a car but we were a very short walk from the main street in town, the beach, and some fun restaurants in Sea Girt.

Heads up, a lot of restaurants in Spring Lake are BYOB, there is no beer on the boardwalk, and there is no bar in the hotel. BUT the staff at the HW gave us the number to Egan's who deliver to the hotel and our order was left in our room for us by the hotel staff, with wine glasses and a corkscrew to boot!

We stayed in room 18. It's on the first floor, right next to a door to the porch where there were tons of chairs to sit out any time, and 5 steps away from Whispers (which was delicious. We ate their twice!). The room sleeps 4 (a double bed in one room and a pull out couch in the other room), and even though the hotel is technically not handicap-accessible, it's was only 4 steps up so my mom who uses a cane was able to get to the room with very little trouble. Also, when suggesting where to go, the staff made sure to keep my mom's abilities in mind and didn't recommend anything that would be impossible for her to get to. I really appreciated that kind of attention, it was very kind.

We had a great stay and I can't wait to get back. Thank you!!

Thank you for sharing the details of your most recent stay with us!

We're so happy to hear that your stay with us was great; that it was great from beginning to end makes us even more happy!

We understand that guests are eager to visit Spring Lake as much as possible, and sometimes they arrive a little earlier than expected. We can always guarantee a Check-In by 3p.m., and if you happen to arrive earlier, our pool, the beach, the breezeway, and the porches are a great spot to relax while we prepare everything for you perfectly.

We're glad the hotel's associates were able to assist you in every aspect of your visit to Spring Lake and the surrounding areas. We're always here to make sure you enjoy every second!

Once again, thank you for the kind words, and we hope to welcome you back in the future! Have a great day!

Had a very nice vacation here. Wanted to comment on the towels. The new ones could not be more luxurious as compared with ones in a previous review. Shows that the management listens and takes action.
Looking forward to our return visit sometime soon.

We decided to spend couple of nights at the Hewitt Wellington and were pleased with the accommodations as well as its close proximity to the beach. When we were tired of the beach, it was great to be able to relax by the pool.

Our pool is a great way to unwind after a great, sunny day at the beach! It's quiet, private, and simple, and always a great place to lay out and enjoy the end of the day.
