Old-fashioned luxury in a historic old New Jersey town with plenty to see and do.
One of the very few newer upscale hotels at the Jersey Shore. There are more now than there were 10 years ago. This one is a must-see.
Just a quick walk or drive to the north is Surf City. This one is a more affordable classic Jersey Shore hotel.
There are several resorts to choose from here at Crystal Springs Resorts. You can't go wrong with any of them, but Grand Cascades is a knockout.
We had to throw one in for the kids and families. This decent indoor/outdoor waterpark is attached to the Hotel ML. Nice property and easy to access from the New JereseyTurnpike or I-295.
One of the classics is America's oldest seaside resort of classics. Must go once at any time of the year.
With a view of Manhattan without all the hassle, how can you go wrong?
The George is an upscale boutique hotel in the heart of charming Montclair. A nice, unexpected getaway.
OK, lower your expectations. This property is at the far southern end of the state right on the Delaware Bay. If you like rustic and isolated, this is your jam.
It seemed to take forever to come together but once it did, it quickly became the crown jewel of accommodations in Asbury Park.
You have the charming bustling tiny city of Hoboken and spectacular views of NYC.
Freehold is an amazing, underrated town with a sick amount of quality restaurants on Main St. alone. There are many more scattered throughout this quaint, historic Monmouth County town.
