Booked an ocean view room, got partial ocean view. Toilet is disgusting. Room is very small. Over charged me $96 than orbitz booked price. One thing good about this hotel is it is close to the beach

First off, my door did not lock. When I addressed it after checking in, front desk said I’d have to wait for security and wasn’t sure how long it would take. The following day we forgot to return beach towels and instead of locker room assistance calling front desk to confirm I was returning they made me go back up to the front desk to let them know I was returning them. Manager then proceeded to call locker room to repeat this entire process. It was rediculous and a waste of my time. Finally at checkout they had charged me for the towels I had already returned and I had to wait almost an hour for them to rectify the issue, and remove the balance off. At which time I realized they had also charged the breakfast we had for the previous 2 morning to the room, when I had paid for them in cash. I guess the waitress got a good tip. Ive stayed here a few other times and expected similar service. But did not get that. Will not be returning here again. At 500$ a night, I would expect service to be at the highest. Instead staff was not friendly or accommodating, and at times had a very nasty attitude. Do not go to this hotel.

This is our second summer vacationing in Long Branch at Ocean Place. The great things about this resort are the location right across from the ocean, the friendly and helpful staff, parking and beach access included, outdoor Tiki bar and seating area, lounge chairs, towels and beach umbrellas also included (with great young guys setting everything up for you!!), access to the boardwalk with shops and restaurants. As stated, lots of great things about this resort. We stayed summer of 2020 as well as 2021. During Covid 2020, needed to wear masks indoors and there was only outdoor dining in the area. This year, no masks unless desired, indoor dining was back. Great outdoor concert our last night this year. Very comfortable room but definitely needs updating. Carpet, fixtures, decor quite outdated and well-worn. For the price, really should be top notch. Bathroom towel bar came out of the wall several times when just removing a towel, caulking around the tub needs replacement. Fridge had lots of frost, no freezer door, carpet had stains and wear. Even that said, we will likely return. Hopefully upgrades will be made or the price will be lowered.

Check in was awful. One staff person working took forever to accommodate those checking in and then I was rushed through the check in without explaining anything about the hotel. When I was given a wrist band I asked what this was for, I was told “all the amenities here.” Well, what are the amenities? More than $500 per night for a view of the rooftop next door. No guest services information in the room. Seems like the place is wide open to the public, although they say it isn’t. Place was packed. No lounge chairs available at the beach or the pool. Early bird gets the worm I guess, but you have to be like 9:00 am early at the beach or pool. Will not be back.

We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub area. I was sad to see that in front of the hotel the ground was all ripped up between us and the beach, quite an eyesore. I was also sent to be informed at check-in that the on-site dining options were closed. The room was fine and the view from the top floor of the beach was nice. The small Shopping Village Square, like, area nearby was perfect for our breakfast and dinner and shopping needs and there was even a games arcade for the small children to play at and win tickets!

Our experience was disappointing, at best. The hotel rooms are musty smelling and badly in need of updating. Our room deadbolt Didn’t lock and the balcony slider door was broken. The food was so bad we didn’t eat anything and had to go out. We won’t stay here again. Definitely not worth $500 per night.

Staff is helpful and friendly. Resort is suoer clean. The location is perfect in regard to the boardwalk.

I location is great. Beach & pool are awesome. Close to shops & boardwalk. Hotel needs updating.

Ocean View place is s great staycation option, I get the Beautiful clean beach experience without having to deal With traveling by plane hassles. The hotel is beautiful and staff is friendly. I would have loved it if it had a coffee shop on the premises, Even if they offer complimentary coffee from 8-11 am , I think a coffee shop in the Hotel would very much be enjoyed by Hotel guests!! I would definitely visit Ocean Place Resort again!!!!!

Very well maintained Friendly helpful staff Excellent location

Always a great stay at Ocean Place. Everything had expanded since our last stay and the amenties are amazing. Love the room, tiki bar, beach service, etc. Definitely will be back next year!

It was all around amazing!!! Hotel is beautiful and perfect location
