I just got back from a girl's trip to Spring Lake, NJ (August 24th-26th). The 5 of us stayed at the Spring Lake Inn in the Innkeepers' Suite (if you look at the rooms on their website, the pictures depict the room perfectly). The inn keeper's are friendly & helpful and the location to the beach is great, just a short 1 block walk. They provide beach badges, chairs, and towels too. There are snacks available in the afternoon and a fridge filled with beverages which are $1 (honor system), and the breakfast isn't bad. I wish they had a daily menu though. What we didn't realize till the last day (after we had already gotten our food) was that we probably could have ordered anything: pancakes, waffles, sunny side up eggs, etc... instead of just "the special".
Our room, which is right off the main foyer, was spotless & comfortable, and huge - perfect for a group of 5-6 girls or a large family. There is a large open area which has two double beds, and a living area, and a separate bedroom with another double bed. Although it boasts a TV, music, etc.. nothing worked. I had to call my husband to figure out how to get the TV, cable, DVD player all correctly hooked up and running so we could watch TV! When we asked the inn keeper, they said they didn't know how to hook up the TV and that the radio (Bose system) didn't work. I'm sure if I had fiddled with wires I would have been able to get the radio working as well! Overall, we had a nice stay, but nothing really stood out about the place. I would recommend it as a nice, no-frills inn, close to the beach, but not sure if I would stay here again.
