Personal Attention

4.0 on January 27, 2016

I was at the Majestic during the great winter snowstorm. The staff was helpful with unloading and parking in the storm. When everything around us was closing, they called local restaurants to see who would deliver food, and coordinated orders so that only one delivery would be needed. When NYC closed all roads and bridges and my kids could not come down, the staff easily cancelled the room and forgave the charges, returning my deposit. I'd go back there any time. Ask for room 8 or 9!


Love it!

This was the second time my husband and I stayed here. We were attending a concert in the area both times. We love it here! Very clean nice rooms and the staff is super friendly. It's within great walking distance from the beach and local shops/venues.

Off Season Delight

The room was lovely, and the staff easily accommodating. Although we did enjoy a simple breakfast, we can't honestly rate the full menu... The coffee, tea, and toast were served in a pleasant surroundings.


Gorgeous getaway

The Magestic hotel was just that...beautiful, outstanding location, premiere luxury rooms and walking distance to great shops and restaurants in town. It was off season so the restaurant on site was closed for private parties, but the continental breakfast provided was hearty. I would gladly return to this location any time of year!


Very Un-Majestic

1.4 on September 21, 2015

What a disappointment. I was travelling from the UK to attend a wedding in Asbury Park and if the bride-to-be had not passed by early on the evening I would have arrived, not only to a building in total darkness, but one with a locked door. Apparently dialling a foreign number is a challenge in the 21st Century at Ocean Grove, although they did manage to send me an email inquiring about my arrival time but again, had it not been for the bride-to-be emailing me instructions of where the keys had been left, I would have been stranded tired and bewildered in the dark wondering whether the Majestic had somehow closed since I had last spoken to them. When I finially did locate the keys and let myself in, I was quite sadly underwhelmed with what greeted me: a tired interior that smelt like a retirement home, in desperate need of a make over. The room itself was a decent size, but cheaply decorated and the bathroom was chipped and cracked - no where near worth the $290 per night. There was no hot water in the morning and when I eventually found someone at 7am to ask for help, I was told that I just needed to let the water run for a "while" as my room was at the top of the house. It took about 15 minutes for the hot water to reach me! Then there was the breakfast: cheap coffee and your choice of sliced shop bought cake. Absolutely no effort has been made to make this an experience and there wasn't a cooked breakfast to be had, even if you wanted them. At no point was I ever welcomed by the owners or the staff, despite being in and out for four days. My advice to the owners is to visit the Ocean Spray around the block for a lesson in how to do B&B. If you're going to charge a high end rate, then you need to deliver a high end product and The Majestic is a million miles away from this. If I had been charged $100 a night I would have been less horrified - spend your money elsewhere!


Expensive but nice.....

Great Place!!

4.0 on August 31, 2015

This place was great! It is close to everything. Beach is right there and all the shopping and restaurants are right there too! The rooms were very clean. It was nice and quiet. We rented bicycles and rode to Asbury Park. The girl at the front desk suggested places to eat and we were very happy. We will be back for sure!


Nice place, pleasant room, great views
