“Great 3 night stay for Sister's August Wedding & Rehearsal dinner on site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

My sister got married here in August, and I had a king bed room for Friday through Monday. The room was on the first floor, and was decent. Nice size bathroom, but the room was smaller with no refrigerator - which would have been a good amenity to have for a long weekend. Other guests who got a double bed room had MUCH more space. The bridal suite is HUGE - has a whole sitting room, two full bathrooms, bar, living room with dining table, large closet with vanity area. Great for those who plan to have bridal party to get ready in the bridal suite.
The pool was great, and though the prices are high at the lobby restaurant, the food is really good. Had an ala carte breakfast at the breakfast room one day which was also on the expensive side but very good. Pool bar has good prices and very friendly staff.
We went to AC on Friday night which was about 10 mins away and very easy with a taxi to and from.
Saturday was the rehearsal dinner which was a BBQ theme. We practiced the ceremony on the grounds (gorgeous) and then went in to the smaller banquet room for the dinner. The food was good - ribs, sausage & peppers, fresh rolls and cornbread, all types of salads. Open bar- again, very nice bartender. Everything was great.
The wedding was Sunday and absolutely stunning on the outside patio near the grand ballroom. Cocktail hour was enormous (satay station and raw bar were outstanding) and just more food than ever expected. Easy to get drinks with two bartenders - there was no line really to wait for a drink (150 person wedding). The reception was just unreal - great service, food and the portions were very large for a wedding. Cake was delicious.

Room Tip: Get the double bed room if you want more space.

This old classic hotel has seen its best days, but it has 2 very good golf courses that are its main draw. It's not near anything else, although Atlantic City is 20 minutes away. The hotel is now run by a college and half of the rooms are used by graduate students. The hotel has a nice outdoor pool and the grounds and landscaping are well kept. Food was pretty good but they were short on wait staff. Shopping is limited to a small sundries store and a pretty big pro shop.

We stayed here 1 night over labor day weekend....my fiance and I prefer to stay here instead of AC (which is where we were headed for a concert)...it is a beautiful resort with a friendly staff. The hotel is old but has a lot of charm, our room was spacious, clean, and the bed was super comfy!
I'm very familiar with the area because I went to college about 10 min away (Stockton) and I've attended a wedding at the Seaview Resort (which was also beautiful). If you have time check out Smithville...its a cute little town/village a few minutes away from the resort and about 15 minutes from AC. Smithville has antique stores, small eateries, and a lake where you can rent a paddle boat. The area calls for a lovely setting and is a fun place to walk around and spend some time.

Attended a wedding here which I have to say was done to perfection. Great food, beautiful setting and convenience for the onsite event and local attractions. The cocktail hour was outside on the terrace and it could not have gone better. Stations with varied and delicious options in addition to wait staff with trays offering up hors d'oeuvres. The ballroom for the dinner was spectacular. I don't know if the hotel as an in house florist but the table arrangements were stunning. Nice big dance floor, excellent food and great sound for the DJ and band. It was a blast.

The only thing stopping this review from being 5 stars is the room. We stayed on the first floor far, far away and it is a bit confusing if you are not familiar with the layout - the hotel dealt with this well posting guides for wedding guests to get to the right location. The room itself was a little blah. I read other reviews that complained of a musty mildew smell - we did not encounter that.....just a room a bit worn around the edges and paper thin walls. I appreciate old world charm so I would not let that stop me from coming here again because the overall grounds were beautiful and the staff was well trained and attentive. If you are considering hosting a wedding in this part of the world do not overlook this property.

Room Tip: We were in room 129 - king size bed and toward the end of a wing on the first floor.

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding on property in September. The property is beautiful. Any golfer would love it! (My husband was disappointed we didn't have time to play!) The room was very nice and well appointed. The bed was SO comfortable. The only negative about the room was that the paint on the ceiling in the shower was peeling. No big deal, a little sanding and new paint and it will be good to go, I'm sure they will do that in the off season. The bathroom was still spotless and nicely sized. The walls were also a little thin, so you could hear people in the next room and the hallway, luckily we didn't have noisy neighbors! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had room service breakfast delivered to the room, it was ok, nothing to write home about, but most room service meals aren't anything superb. Overall, if we were in the area again, I would be happy to return.

This is a beautiful old world style hotel. Very classic style and details.
It is a great shore destination hotel. It is in between atlantic city ( about ten minutes) and Ocean city nj (15 minutes) .It is also very close about ten minutes to Storybook land....a must see for families with children.The hotels has a golf course, a nice outdoor pool and a great indoor pool. It also has a family game room downstairs with a large TV, couch and pool tables, ping pong and air hockey all free of charge.(although it is a bit musty down there)
The beds are very comfortable,AC works well and the rOoms are updated and clean. Room came with a free microwave and a refrigerator.The staff are very pleasing and accommodating.They do have a few rooms with balconies , call to request.

Stayed here on a business trip, I can't express how friendly and welcoming the staff was. The hotel itself is like a wonderful old house surrounded by nicely landscaped grounds. I spent more than a few nights enjoying the breezes in one of the lawn chairs set out under the trees. I almost can't wait to visit again.
