Hazlet, New Jersey
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stayed on the 6th floor, had great view of the ocean. Room was clean and a/c worked great. Tiki bar is nice to hang out and listen to the live band which plays every night 5-10 and the food is very good and priced right. Room balcony is very small, standing room only but serves it's purpose.

Our third stay at this very comfortable and affordable resort. Very convenient to the beach. The food is very good and the Seafood Buffet is excellent. The staff is friendly, courteous, and very helpful. The Tiki Bar (Lenny's Bar and Grill) is a must see. I would like to commend Cyle and Samantha for their exceptional service. Make sure they...

My sister in law picked this hotel. This was our first stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is awesome. The pools were heated and nice. We loved the beach waitress amenity too. There's live music which plays a little late for a family but quality singers. There's ample parking. Our maid, Helen was the best I've ever...

One small issue to get out of the way, there was some water damage in the rooms but I never expect rooms to be perfect when they are by the ocean because they are so over-used. With that said, our whole entire softball team and their families stayed here for our second year in a row and decided even if...

Loved just about everything about this hotel! Great restaurant, my 5 year old daughter and wife loved it... the tiki bar w/ live entertainment during happy hours was great! Only notable problems is that the outside pool has a rough surface either on the bottom of the pool and/or on the ledge or sitting shelf of the pool. I scraped...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and provide valuable feedback. I'm very glad you, your wife, and daughter enjoyed your vacation with us! Just to clarify, the employees you saw at the pools are pool attendants and not lifeguards; lifeguards aren't required for the size pools that we have. However, there are normally full first aid...

I stayed here with my husband and 4 kids. The room had 2 double beds and a sleep sofa so everyone had space. The facilities and room were clean and I had no problems.

Both the indoor and outdoor pools were warm and the food at the hotel restaurant was very good. The buffet had a lot of variety and was tasty. The extensive wine list is a rarity at a hotel restaurant.

This is our go-to place to stay in OC. We love that you can drink on the beach and love that the food and drinks (love the buckets of fun!) are pretty tasty from the beach bar and grill for lunch. The rooms are nice, the location is great if you want to escape all the boardwalk madness. I will...

I always enjoy staying at the Clarion. Once you park your car, you don't have to leave, because everything is there. Pools, Ocean, Bars, Restaurants, Bands and a lot of Children's activities. Crab Imperial I feel is the Best.
