"Needed a room unexpectedly, pleasantly surprised."
I had to check my daughter in the hospital that specialized in her issues. I live on LBI NJ & 2 hour drive. After the whole experience of checking her in and saying good by I was exhausted & decided to find a hotel for the night. I NEVER expected for the hotel to be so nice. I found the hotel on Expedia super quick, booked & paid for it. I really didn't want to pay 169.00, was WAY out of my budget but I was too tired to search further. Parking space, no problem. Front desk girl excellent, cookies to take & warm up in your room were on the counter. The area that usually is for breakfast was turned into the "manager's Wed night happy hour". Free wine, beer & soda. WITH pasta, bread & the best homemade BIG meatballs. Super friendly manager serving it, would NOT take a tip! Awesome fireplaces and big flat screens, So warm and friendly. Right there (in my mind) it took off 50.00 dollars. Heck that was FREE dinner & cocktails!& it WAS GOOD! The whole hotel was so clean and smelled so good! The room was amazing for a Holiday express it was like a 5 star room. We even went for a swim and enjoyed the hot tub. It was open till 11pm The breakfast was super good too, bacon, eggs, pancakes, juice milk, coffee, fruit, cereal, bagels, doughnuts, & much more.with take out bags. The room was cozy, fireplace,TVs with the news.They had 2 girls working the breakfast bar & refilling and cleaning. Again the breakfast (in my mind) took another 20 off the cost. EXCELLENT!
