“excellent hotel / beware of weekend lounge music”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

Excellent clean facility with ample parking. Very close to major roads but set back so traffic noise is not a problem. Minutes away to the ocean and shopping.The room was large and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was free, filling and tasty, and the hotel staff was very professsional. Weekday evenings the room was very quiet. Weekend evenings we could hear the music (mostly bass and drum) rumbles from the lounge opposite the reservation desk. Unfortunately, our room was situated near the reservation atrium area. All members of our party heard the noise. If not for this annoyance, the hotel would be close to a perfect 10.

Room Tip: Reserve a weekend room away from lounge area

Efficient check in. Room was large, clean, and well equipped with the amenities we have come to expect (decent TV, coffee maker, hair dryer) but also had a small refrigerator and a microwave. Bed was comfortable. I think it had been recently remodeled as a part of some sort of up upgrade program.

Breakfast was the usual motel free breakfast, but also had hot scrambled eggs and bacon on a steam table. So sort of a cut above the norm.

Hotel is located west of the Garden state on Rte 31 but well back from it so noise from the road is not a factor.

My husband and I spent one night here for my high school reunion. It was the place that the reunion committee had selected and where they blocked rooms. I went with low expectations and was most pleasantly surprised. The young woman at the front desk was friendly, efficient and helpful. Our room was lovely--quiet, comfortable bed and nicely furnished including a flat screen TV. The complimentary breakfast was another really nice surprise. The location was most convenient--close to the Garden State Parkway. The pool was lovely and the grounds are very well maintained. Anyone who has reason to be in the TR area can't go wrong staying here. Great value.

Excellent, friendly,helpful staff. Fantastic managenment.Very, very clean rooms, comfortable beds. Great clean pool. I stay at this hotel often and when I come back it's like my home away from home. Mr Bob Van really takes pride in his hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to get away and just relax or just for business purposes.

We stayed in a first floor handicapped room facing a side parking area. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and modern. The room seemed updated and was a comfortable stay. I had a very quiet room and the a/c kept a constant hum which was a good sound barrier.
The only negative was the smell of the room. I am sensitive to air fresheners and found the smell too strong and I disliked it. After being in the room for a while, we got used to it. But each time we reentered, we smelled it.
We used the gym a few miles away.This service was free and we liked the gym. The breakfast was adequate and basically all we needed. It was nice to be able to roll out of bed and have some breakfast, free right off the lobby.
