“Overpriced, on the beach, next to a shopping/restaurant village”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Our room rate was $199 plus the resort fee so $211 during the off season while the whole lobby was under construction-- so overpriced! The rooms have been updated since last year, though, and they are much nicer than they were in May 2013. They redid the lobby space practically overnight - the new bar and restaurant are much more trendy looking with a lot of open space. Hotel is convenient to a shopping/restaurant village and is along the boardwalk.

Stayed June 2014, travelled on business

If you want a family-friendly place on the beach, this place is it. Also, has a nice outdoor pool along the beach side and an indoor pool too. Free parking and great access to the boardwalk along Long Branch. The staff is friendly and attentive. Doing a bit of construction on first floor but didn't affect our ability to access the hotel amenities. Because the grounds are spread out and the beach very wide here, it never felt crowded or noisy at this hotel.

While the hotel is nice and has a great location, the staff is anything but hospitable. I waited 27 minutes once seated by the host for a server to even come over to me. They were all just standing around chatting with one another. The front desk was understaffed, my room was not ready at 4pm to check as they said it would be and don't expect any help in the mornings as no one is around at all. Will never stay here again.

Great hotel. Walking distance to the pier with good restaurants and nice shops. Room was nice and clean. Will definitely come back. Beaches are nice but Long Island beaches are much nicer. Great getaway for a few days. We enjoyed walking the boardwalk.

Pro's-
Great lobby, Food was very good for resort this type, although I waited longer than I would have liked for lunch outside on terrace. The servers are very friendly and seem to care. Tiki bar great, and they have a great drink menu worth the price. Banquet dinner on the beach top notch. Pool area upstairs nice and I didn't feel I was in NJ for my stay. Love those palm trees
Con's
I was aggravated that my room was not ready at 3:30pm when I booked a stay for a 4O'clock wedding at the hotel over 8 months ago. 4pm check in for 4pm wedding traveling in from out of town not good.
Rooms were decent, and views from 12th floor fabulous.

My wife and I were staying overnight after spending the day at the beach with some friends. We thought we might bring our dog so we booked the dog-friendly room. They're on the second floor and they are tiled, not carpeted. The balcony is double the size of the rooms upstairs. Otherwise, it's the same as the other rooms. We found it, just like last time, very comfortable. The staff was friendly. The beach service was excellent. The chairs and umbrellas that they provided made for a comfortable afternoon on the beach. The water was never busy even though the beach was full of families and couples. The breakfast buffet was worth more than they charge for it.

Great location on the Jersey Shore and updated hotel. Able to park and enjoy a long stay on the Jersey Shore without having to drive. Walking distance to Pier Village which has great restaurants for families and large groups. Hotel is updated, nice rooms, easy access to pool and beach. Restaurant and pool side service needs some training but overall you can't go wrong here.
