Rated 2 out of 5 by Quincy1234 Do not stay at this hotel
This hotel is in desperate need of improvement or should not be an SPG property. Upon my arrival, I was told I was "upgraded" to the suite, The suite was outdated with worn carpeting, track lighting above the bed, furniture that had been there for at least 20 years. Some weird "ditch" that ran through the middle of the room. I changed rooms and was moved to the 6th floor. Which was better, but still everything was just a bit worn. The place needs an update. The lounge had over-cooked eggs, under-cooked potatoes and absolutely no meat options. I see the place is up for sale. SPG should give serious consideration to not letting it have the Sheraton name on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tspoon Very Enjoyable Stay
Room was nicely furnished and comfortable both for leisure and business purposes. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of free parking available. Only deficiency was there was no coffee available in the lobby - you had to wait for the restaurant to open. Major restaurant chains are all located within a mile or two of the hotel. HIghway access in all directions very convenient

Rated 4 out of 5 by JGH123 The best hotel in the area
We are repeat guests at this Sheraton for our frequent visits to nearby Ocean Grove. Reservations well in advance are essential for summer weekends, which are mostly sold out here. Food is very good and portions are quite generous in the small, windowless JR's Restaurant, but it's a pity that the much larger, airy main dining room is only open for breakfast. The hotel entrance on northbound Rt. 35 is poorly lighted at night and easily missed -- but if you pass it, you can make a right turn on Industrial Way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by catabad This hotel needs a serious update to linens, rooms and club lounge.
I have been a convert to Starwood because I feel like no matter where I go, a hotel within this family will be clean, updated and business class ready. Although I think this Sheraton was probably best in class 10 years ago, it is time for a renovation and update to the linens and decor.
I had two towels with a hole in each, and you know that feeling you get when you are sleeping in clean sheets--that crispness and fresh smell--I did not experience that at this Sheraton. Now, with that said, I am sure the sheets were laundered and towels as well, but it just didn't "feel" that way. Also the club lounge food seemed a bit dated and although abundant in quantity, it just didn't look appetizing. I want cocktail hour to have finger food and tapas, not steak slathered in gravy and ham salad. Just a personal preference.
Positives are that there was plenty of complimentary water and the desk was very nice. The TV also worked very well and the a/c kept the room chilly. The staff was very friendly and my coworker's TV didn't work and they sent someone right away and fixed it, he was very happy.
Overall, the price point at a low $89/night seemed fair for what I got in return and will most likely stay here again to see how it improves and because it is the only Starwood for miles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NJvisitor888 Miserable experience at check in
We arrived about 8 minutes before the official check in time. Our room was not ready and when I pointed out that it was check in time, the desk clerk, Carol, raised her voice at me telling me it was not her fault that rooms weren't ready. When I asked her to lower her voice, she really lit into me and then stalked off to "get my manager". I have never been spoken to in such a tone of voice at any hotel anywhere. When we walked into our room, it was 80 degrees in there. They ended up putting us in a suite, but all of that was very stressful. The suite's temperature was also very high, but it cooled down unlike the other room. Beyond that, the carpets in the halls were dirty and stained. The lights in the dressing area were inadequate. The drapes were not properly attached and someone at some point attached a hand towel to block the light. All in all, a disappointing stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyTraveler Excellent guest services
I spend more than 75% of every month on the road, and have never experienced a more welcoming and accommodating staff than here at the Sheraton Eatontown. The staff go out of their way - with a genuine smile - to ensure that guests are more than satisfied with their stay. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area - they deserve more than 5 stars.
