I made reservations early, based on the misleading pictures on the net. When we got there (two rooms, 4 people in each room) it took us over an hour to get a space in the parking lot. I was told there were 40 spaces, in reality there are 15 max. He tried to charge me 20 to park (website says...

At the time of your review, the hotel was managed by another co which was not up to standards. A new management co took over in 2010 who has delivered professional, consistent, and improved service all around. We take our guests' experience very seriously and strive to please. We encourage you to try the Homestead again and enjoy our beach...

You should weigh the pros and cons of this hotel before considering. If you have any children, do not stay here. The rooms are extremely small. Think of a standard-sized room in a name-brand hotel and then half it. This place is really only good for couples seeking a cozy little room. Overall, we were okay with it because it...

My husband went with my son and his friends for his birthday- guys weekend out. Booked an efficiency apt. room that supposibly slept 5. When they got there, the room was barely enough room for 2 adults. 2 boys had to sleep on the gross floor, which desperately needs replaced. They had to use the same towels all weekend and...

$250 a night seems like a fair price for the Jersey shore in early august. I should know, I live here. Looking for a weekend getaway we booked Homestead. Our first room was adorable but MINISCULE. Four 20-yr old girls could not fit comfortably in the size room they had to offer. The pictures on the website are VERY misleading...

From the moment my boyfriend and I got there, we were greeted by the manager, who was kind and accommodating, even allowing us to check in early. Our room was clean, bright, airy and had a beachy feel to it. The personal care and attention we continued to receive throughout our stay made us feel at home. The location is...

Well, it always looked pretty cool on the outside, turn of the century building a half block from the beach. I purchased a week in July and a day in june to check it out with the family. Strangely, never was sent a lease, even after they had my money! And then we got there.... The cramped front desk wanted...

“Look at the photos, and read the descriptions, each room is different and all decorated differently, ask questions, some rooms have ocean views and others do not, so if thats important to you, make sure you ask what your view is.”
