Great hotel with excellent staff !!

Posted May 4, 2015
Pros: The staff and the location are awesome !!
Location: Beside the beach, village area with shops & restaurants just short walk/bike ride away, climb the stairs of the lighthouse for amazing views !!
From beginning to end the staff at this fabulous hotel were wonderful !! We received a warm welcome when arrived, the check in was quick and easy and we were then shown to our room - felt more like we'd arrived at a friends house than a hotel !!! We had booked a deluxe suite and it lived up to the name, great room with fabulous views from the lovely large balcony. Breakfast was served downstairs, day one we sat inside, day two we sat out on the patio with a gorgeous view of the ocean I can't compliment the staff enough they go above and beyond for their guests !! Everyone is greeted like a friend and well taken care of, nothing is too much trouble !! The food was delicious, we enjoyed yummy little scones with our coffee while we waited on our breakfast, the eggs Benedict were fab as was the frittata my husband had. The pancakes are so fluffy and light they are heavenly, I tried the apple pancakes which were delicious - full of crunchy apple pieces !! I'd recommend the Rooftop restaurant, great for a special meal with amazing views but grab a light jacket or wrap as it does get chilly with the ocean breezes if you eat out on the patio !!! The hotel has bikes and beach chairs available for guests to use, next time we'll certainly make use of the bikes. I'm already looking forward to my next visit to this great hotel, the staff and the location make this place something very special indeed !!!

Well appointed second row hotel

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Pros: Proximity to restaurants; Two bathrooms; Wonderful staff
Cons: I wish the hotel were ocean front.
Location: Neptune park and the pier are about half a mile away. Crabdaddy's is less than half a mile in the other direction.
The hotel is second row with limited ocean views but rooms with great balconies. The furnishings are much nicer than a typical beach hotel. Our suite had two bathrooms which was a nice bonus. The free breakfast was good. Michelle and Gloria took great care of us at breakfast. The concierge, Jackie, greeted us every morning with a friendly smile. Gloria and her daughter, also Gloria, kept our room clean. We walked everywhere. Neptune park and the pier are about half a mile away. Crabdaddy's is less than half a mile in the other direction. We saw dolphins swimming from the beach. During high tide there is little beach but the neighborhood is very walkable too.

It was very relaxing, I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Birthday Weekend

Posted Jan 19, 2015
The Ocean Lodge is a hidden Luxuriously Romantic Italian jewel for couples. This location is perfect, just across the street from the beautiful Atlantic.  Their staff was extremely hospitable. Specifically, Ms. Jackie and Ms. Michelle made my boyfriend's birthday at the Lodge truly enjoyable, they went above and beyond my expectations. The room we stayed in on the third floor was elegant and expansive. The bed was so comfortable, we never wanted to get up and the view of the sunrise was breath taking. The daily chef prepared breakfast was A+++Their Rooftop restaurant and bar had great food and drinks. The live music was superb, Michael Hulett played the hell out of the sax and entertained like no other. We will be returning to our new found romantic  hideaway. A special thanks to Joe, without him this experience would not have been possible.

Awesome!

Posted Jan 18, 2015 on Hotels.com
My wife and I visited the Ocean Lodge Jan. 1-4. We were very pleased with the Ocean Lodge as soon as we arrived. It is very easy to find, and right across the street from the Ocean. Don't plan on walking on the beach right there however, unless the tide is really low. Anyway, the Ocean Lodge is small and private. Our welcome was very warm, and we were very pleased to find out that the staff we met on day 1 was the staff that served us during our entire stay. The rooms are just as nice as the pictures depict, and are very large. The cleaning service was done every day, and always left the room smelling great. We were surprised to find that our suite actually had 2 bathrooms. The hotel's complimentary bikes are a really nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island by bike. The breakfast that is included is fantastic. It is made to order from a menu, and not a standard buffet. We ordered the Roof Top restaurant to be brought to our room, and it was delicious. I don't have a single bad thing to say about our visit. The Ocean Lodge was exactly what we hoped it would be, and we definitely want to make a return trip.
