We had our daughter's wedding there and stayed in one of the recently re-done poolside rooms. The room was beautiful and big with a living room area. This area was great because we had many family and friends staying and it was a great space to gather and visit. The wedding couldn't have been better and the staff was wonderful...

My husband and I stayed here. The room was recently re-done. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The bed, ah the bed, had a brand new matress on it and it was heavenly. Had a great night's sleep. We also had dinner in the restaurant, it was delicious. The steaks are very good! We will go back and stay...

Went there on a package that included "Date Night Dinner". When we walked in I asked an employee where thre registration desk was, he had a blank stare. We were standing right in front of it (it was not marked). Our package was to include a Deluxe Room, but alas none were available. Given a room with two full size...

Dear Guest, We truly value the opinions of all our guests. Over the last two years we have done many renovations to improve our venue. The focus of the first phase of our renovations was on the restaurant and banquet facility. We have now begun the second phase which focuses on our guest rooms. We have just completed the first...

We went back to Doolans for a weekend and had another great time. We had a superb dinner at the restaurant both nights. This time the room was a bit smaller but it was clean. The staff was courteous and helpful as usual.

Had my wedding here, and as a wedding venue it CAN NOT be beat. The food is awesome, the people are accomodating and it was just PERFECT- truly... The hotel portion needs a little bit of help.... If you stay in one of the more expensive rooms on the inside lobby area, there are no complaints.... However, the rooms with...

The RHS Class of '67 just had our 2nd weekend reunion at Doolan's Shore Club in Spring Lake, NJ. I have to say, the place is even better than it was 2 years ago! The place is perfect for a large event, it's the best because the staff is so accommodating. Since we were last there Susan had the bar...

I stayed at the hotel portion of Doolan's because I was attending a wedding there and rooms where blocked off for the wedding guests. My room, which you access from the parking lot was horrible. It was old, outdated and nasty. If I wasn't having a drink or two that night...I would have driven home and lost the money I...

I waited a month to get the rom I wanted , which was described as a Deluxe Room. Yes it slightly overlooked the pool, but that was obscurred by the air conditioners right outside the picture window.

The Shore Club is without a doubt the most friendly and hospitable hotel/resort facility in which my wife and I have ever vacationed and we have traveled all across the USA. Susan and Joan, the proprietors are obviously continuing the Doolan family tradition established by their parents. THEIR ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND SERVICE TO THE GUESTS HAS BEEN PASSED ONTO...
