Rated 3 out of 5 by PatPhilly Hotel is well located, but needs updating
This hotel was perfectly located for our visit to Monmouth Beach and the surrounding area. We found the staff very hospitable and helpful. I was disappointed however in the condition of the hotel...I am sure it is just routine wear and tear, but has reached the point where it needs to be refurbished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skopper Clone TOM!
By far the best feature of this hotel was the gentleman who handles baggage and runs the hotel shuttle - TOM!! This is an employee who truly understands the meaning of the word "hospitality" and embodies it fully! From our first encounter upon arrival to the many drives he took us on, he was a true pleasure to interact with and someone who is a fine example of your staffing!
The only negative of our stay was that the jacuzzi wasn't working :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 by finalvisit the customer is never right
I was, for some reason, placed in a room located next to a suite full of guys on a bachelor party. If this had been on a Friday or Saturday night then perhaps I would have been able to accept the noise. On a Thursday, however, I was neither willing nor able to do so.
At about 1:30am I was finally relocated to another room, in which the awful smell was made tolerable only by the situation I had just left. I was granted a $35 discount for my troubles.
I've stayed at this hotel many many times, but I am actively searching for a replacement hotel in the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Defender12 They get loyalty
This hotel did something that rendered me speechless. I booked a suite for friday and used points to book another room saturday. For my platinum amenity, I asked to simply stay in the same room. They did me one better. They said yes then reduced my rate for the first night to the wedding party rate! I paid half price for a suite and got it for two nights! I spent money in the restaurant several times to say thanks. And, the staff here, is excellent. Very accommodating and down to earth even when I almost missed the wedding and was freaking out!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TravellingFamilyMan Cleaning and amenities crew - not good
I rented the Suite on the weekend for family getaway. As a platinum member I expected better services. The cleaning crew did not refresh my sheets as requested. After two complaints to front desk and various requests, the call came to be addressed. but the dust and crumbs on my desk as well as unclean sheets were not refreshed as a basic need prior to checkin. Housekeeping is lazy here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by breachofcontract2014 Poor Service
I reserved a block of rooms for my upcoming wedding however the hotel released all unused rooms prior to the contracted deadline. I was offered no explanation as to why the terms of my contract were violated and no remediation was offered. They told me "sorry but there is nothing we can do."

Rated 1 out of 5 by Georgi Horrible Hotel
I travel a lot for business and stay at Sheraton hotels. This hotel is horrible.
The bathroom was unsatisfactory. The toilet lid was completely cracked and broken. The shower had mold ont he ceiling, and the shower itself would not work not enough pressure or something. Additionally the drain did not work so I stood in water up to my knees to shower.
No towels were left in my room after cleaning and even to start my stay I had only one bathtowel in my room.
Additionally, the noise do to a group of students was unbelievalbe.
i contactedt he front desk who was very rude and did nothing about the disconfort and issues.
would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I am a committe member for the BIANJ conference which is at thsi hotel each year and I am highly recommended changes venues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JayDee5558 Lacking some amenities
For the price of the room I would have expected a mini-fridge and a microwave, which were absent. Can't remember the last time I stayed at a hotel with a $170 room without those amenities!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Travelpro2 IS THIS REALLY A SHERATON??
I have never been so disappointed. I travel quite frequently for business and personal. Once I arrived to my room. I was taken back by 70's pink, light blue and pearl wall paper. I opened my room door to stains on the drop ceiling; an old smell;dated curtians; wood door to the bathroom with peeling paint; old carpet; formica bathroom counter tops and anything that was chrome in the bathroom was rusted. THe front desk had me try another room and it was just as bad. I left and stayed at the Staybridge across the parking lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tounces17 Needs designated parking for guests and updated rooms
In general, enjoy this hotel and have stayed here on more than one occasion. Club lounge renovation is wonderful but some of the rooms on that floor need some refreshing. Lack of designated parking for hotel guests is a problem. Returning to the hotel while they are hosting one of their many events leaves little to no convenient parking and one is left to hike to the hotel. When you are carrying luggage and children this becomes challenging. Should consider a complementary valet for guests when parking becomes challenging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kaytee86 Nothing special, contract issues
If this hotel wants to be use during weddings and have wedding blocks they need to learn to cooperate and communicate with their clients. A couple who books at large quality of rooms should have their bridal suite covered by the hotel. If the bridal party is getting ready at the hotel and they leave before the check in time, the Sheraton should actually make an effort ahead of time to accommodate those guest. This hotel needs to up their game If they want people to use them as their hotels for wedding hotel blocks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarterTravelers Great Location for Jersey Shore goers
We have been coming to this hotel for many years several times a summer to enjoy the Jersey Shore without the headache of driving back and forth for day trips. The updates to the hotel were much needed and the club lounge is so much better. There is still room for improvement especially the pool and hot tub. The floor is very slippery and always has water on it probably due to the poor drainage. Drains are clogged and we even saw maintainace push water into the hot tub (disgusting). The pool needed to be warmer- was very cold - if they wanted to keep the outdoor pool open which is connecting then they have to heat it!!! We were unable to enjoy the pool this trip. Also, front desk staff could be nicer and recognize that we come to this hotel often and are gold level spg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JanHK2014 Nice and Convenient
The facilities are clean and comfortable, and the location is very convenient to the GSP, Routes 18, 36, and 35.
However, the room lacked a room safe and we had to request extra towels; only 2 sets were provided.
The hotel was very accommodating, even de-feathering the room upon request due to my asthma and allergies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sue3 friendly staff
The staff was very friendly. It was a busy night when we stayed and that was reflected in our experience with this stay. We checked in,went to our room and someone else was in it! We went back down to reception and told them , they took $50.00 off our room and gave us another room. When we checked out the women gave us a copy of our bill and it had a $50.00 food bill on it that wasnot ours.She did take that off our bill. The hotel is older and needs updating however it was clean and the staff was friendly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cojoel not impressed
Initially I was turned off because website posted that hor dourves were served in the evening. When I got there, I was told I had to have club status. The room was nicely furnished but bed had a moldy smell and bed was uncomfortable. The pool area looked great but pool had so much chlorine in it that my eyes burned just standing outside of the pool. Jacuzzi had debris in it was same temperature of the pool.
This is a nice hotel in a great location but needs more improvements to get me to stay there again.

I love the hotel and the staff is always friendly and helpfull. The service at the Bar and the food is always good.
My only issue was on the second night of stay when I woke the room service did not replenish the coffee station in the room.
I have stayed here many times and will continue to stay there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KlyBot pretty average, nothing spectacular
the hotel & its decor are slightly dated. the staff was friendly, but their system did not reflect my gold status, so i didnt get bonus starpoints or late check-out. there was a rattle in the wall, not related to the HVAC system (it rattled even when the heat/ac was turned off). also i wish they would spread out the guests better. i was on a floor that was practically empty, yet they put a family with 3 children in the room immediately next to me. i know there were lots of open/empty rooms on the floor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sheeba Way overpriced for dated rooms
Overall staff was very friendly and helpful however the rooms were very plain and not what expected for price paid. Way overpriced. Toiletries very sparse,had three people and not enough coffee, cups or toiletries for guests. Door to bathroom opens very awkward constantly in the way with entering and exting the room, can't enter room when bathroom door is left open or have both open at same time. Rooms were very plain, small, cramped and double beds too small for two adults. would not recommend for price we paid. Would not recommend for wedding guests many guests felt the rooms were very outdated and not at all worth price paid. You expect a little more luxury for the amount of money spent per night. 4 wedding parties and only one bar tender working in bar, very long wait for drinks

Stayed 1 night. Iit was good except the tv went out early morning. Called guest services & they said they would look into it. It was very boring sitting in the room for a couple of hours b4 check out with nothing to do. upon check out I told them again about the TV & they said they were not aware of the situation. I thought they would atleast offer a small discount on the room due to the inconvience and they didn't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by js4444 Room very nice; cafe freezing in winter
The room was nice enough, but don't plan to eat breakfast in the cafe during the winter. It was so cold everyone wore their coats. I thought the heat was not working, but staff said this is just the way it is in the winter. Wasted the money I prepaid for breakfast because it was too cold to stay in the restaurant.
Also, I had a question about my bill, called and left a message and no one ever returned my call.
Small things, but combined they didn't leave me with a great feeling about service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by starrynight89 Staff is extraordinary.
First room had a bathroom with a distinct odor, bath water from shower wouldn't drain and a light bulb missing which we reported next morning. We were staying one more night for a wedding. The staff was exceptional--immediately maintenance was called, he deemed the room unsuitable, so they found us another room on the same floor; and while we packed, the head of housekeeping got us a luggage cart and keys and offered to send up a bellman. The new room was perfect. Kudos to the staff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by undersea bad experience
-Room smelled like cigarette smoke
-The door to my room was damaged
-my room was not made up
-I purchased a "club" package deal that included club acccess and free breakfast but it was not on my reservation when I arrived. I had to find my confirmation, which said I had club access. I was treated rudly by the receptionist who seemed to be accusing me of lying, and then the manager who kept telling me I don't get club access on that rate code. I could care less what the "rate code" is. I know what I purhcased, and I had my confirmation to prove it. They were very rude, made me come back down to the front desk after long flight, and I had to stand there for 20 minutes while they argued with me about my rate code before they finally gave me club access as I paid for.
overall, not a great hotel experience.
