You will not be disappointed. Their food is amazing, their service is top notch and our wedding here was just beyond perfect.

The guests were all so impressed by the wait staff and especially the... More

This was our fifth year vacationing at Doolan's and if possible the best ever as all of the past four years was phenominal.

They had entertainment from the well known Irish entertainer Mike Byrne,... More

We go here for dinner every time we are in town. This year we stayed at the Breakers and one night I took the family here for dinner. Like always, personable, efficient service and great food.

Don't let the looks deceive you...this 1960's style hotel has not changed much.Beneath the concrete and rusty structure lies a clean well kept motel....Our room was not bad for the price (considering its Spring Lake). The concrete pool was clean refreshing and NOT crowded...A good hot buffet breakfast is included in the daily rate. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Doolan's... More

Doolan's is full of unrecognized potential. The musty, dirty, outdated rooms and decor are in great need of updating and investment.

My family stayed at Doolan's Shore Club because of a wedding there. The rooms were disgusting- dirty sheets, hair on the sheets, run down rooms, musty smelling rooms. I was so embarrassed for recommending them to stay there.
