My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a long weekend in July. The pictures on the hotel website of the parlor we thought we were getting were very deceiving - we thought the room would be much bigger - it turned out the sleeper sofa was just directly next to the bed, rather than in its own room. The room was clean and furnishings were nice, but the room was very dark, and looked more like a hotel room in a city - there was nothing "beachy" about it at all.
The staff was very nice, but we were put off upon arrival by a new staff member who spent 10 minutes talking to another hotel patron about his line of work before acknowledging our presence and checking us in.
While it is walk-able to the beach (and a lovely one at that - right past the lake), it is a good 15-20 minutes, so if you are looking for an easy on, easy off beach scenario this is not for you.
We won't come back here. For the amount we paid, we could've stayed in a much nicer hotel on the beach in Long Branch.
