I have to admit since I started my block of rooms for my wedding,a year and a half ago, it has been a crazy roller coaster. I have dealt with so many different employees and over 5 different general managers. I was very nervous about my block, paperwork was lost and reservations were missing. This should be the easy part...

Our family just completed our fourth annual visit to the Bungalow and have to say there was a marvelous improvement over the last three years. A hotel consultant (Julian) was brought in and the changes in staff and attitude were all first rate. DJ (bellman/reception) greeted us upon arrival and was great the entire stay. There had been no professionalism...

Found this property on a Google search and read some reviews on this site. Located a block or so from the boardwalk, this is a funky, cool spot you might not even know existed if you weren't looking for it. Greeted by great lobby with pool table, comfortable lounge chairs and a small bar, it's very welcoming. Although official check...

This small (2 dozen or so rooms) "boutique" hotel can be described as modern with a strong dose of "retro." Very clean and very beautiful! Much thought and planning went into the design of the rooms and the decorating details. The staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby/game room was comfortable and inviting. We only stayed for one night...

Would recommend but pricey! Large rooms, friendly staff. Not on beach but for $15 day you can use their beach club which provided lounge chairs, towels and umbrellas and you can buy food at your chair. Food was really good! Located right at the village pier for great shopping and restaurants.

This hotel is completely over priced considering how little you get. I was new to the Long Branch area, although quite familiar with the beach towns more south, so some friends and I thought we would give the Bungalow a try. We heard it was a trendy boutique hotel within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in Long Branch....

The hotel is clean and beautiful. That is where the good ends. The staff is not helpful at all. It's simply "check-in", "check-out", take payment and that's it.
