Having occupied its current address for more than 100 years, Chateau Inn & Suites is the perfect base for experiencing the charms of the Jersey Shore. The property is, in fact, one of the founding members of The Historic Inns of Spring Lake, but don’t let her age fool you – this lovely retreat is completely up-to-date, with all the modern conveniences and luxurious touches needed for a relaxing getaway. You’ll find marble fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs and high-end furnishings, all combining to create a stay that’s truly unforgettable.
There’s just as much to enjoy outside the walls of this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, too. You’re at the Jersey Shore, one of the country’s most classic vacation destinations, so whatever all-American pleasure you seek, be it an arcade game or a Six Flags roller coaster, a fried Twinkie or a saltwater taffy, all you need to do is stroll down the boardwalk. And if you need an excuse to drive around, blasting Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”? Asbury Park’s The Stone Pony, where he was discovered, is just a 15-minute drive away.
Each of the 37 elegant and individually decorated rooms features high-end furnishings, imported marble in the bathroom and some kind of outdoor area (patio, sun deck or balcony). You get a Jacuzzi, too, for a luxurious bath at the end of a busy day.
Occupying one of the most picturesque settings on the Jersey Shore, the inn is tucked alongside Spring Lake’s namesake waters, just five blocks from the ocean and boardwalk. The surrounding town is exceedingly lovely, dotted with wooden bridges, gazebos, impressive homes and gardens. Plenty of parks, restaurants and pubs are just a short walk, and famed Asbury Park and Point Pleasant a short drive.
How to Get There
My extended family has been coming here for at least nineteen summers for a long weekend by the beach. This Inn is in the perfect location. It is right across from Spring Lake where there are tennis courts, a playground for little ones, and it is also a nice scenic place for a walk, run, or bike ride. The Inn has many beach bikes available for rental for the guests at a fair price. The town is also walking distance and it is a cute little town with some good restaurants, nice shopping, and great for browsing around. It is not at all what you would might think of the "Jersey Shore." It is not at all cheesy and has a feel more like Martha's Vineyard with cute preppy stores and beautiful Victorian styled homes. The Inn also gives the guests beach passes to the private beach area near the Pavillion where you can eat and use the restrooms while visiting the beach. It also provides beach chairs if you need them and beach towels. The guest rooms are spacious and well air-conditioned and have nice deck/porch areas where you can sit outside and have a cup of coffee or read. The Inn adds nice classy touches like making water available all day flavored with either lemon slices and/or cucumber slices (which I enjoyed often before and after walking and biking around the area). In the afternoon there is unsweetened iced tea and bakery cookies available at no additional cost. The breakfast is fine- it is a continental breakfast that is a small fee extra but if you prefer to eat a hot breakfast in town there are several options that are very good for breakfast and/or brunch. The Inn is great for families and/or just a couple that wants to escape for a nice beach vacation. I highly recommend staying here if you want a lovely, relaxing beach vacation in a great location.
We just finished another marvelous stay! We are never disappointed! Scott certainly has mastered the hotel experience. The room is comfy and clean! The Continental Breakfast is opulent. The grounds are superb - a postcard photo with each step! The staff is so attentive - especially Amanda and April! We availed ourselves of many of the resources available! Denise & Peter
This is one of the most quaint, sophisticated, outstanding, friendly, #1 in customer service, immaculate Inn that you can possibly get from any Inn and Suites in Spring Lake. Thank you all who provided us with top notch service during some very eventful happenings to: Scott Smith, CEO (our hero who saved our vacation with quick wit expertise in getting us settled), April Masco - General Manager (nicest, friendliest most accommodating woman we've ever met), Sage Smith (most accommodating life saver service), and Ralph Masco (hands on friendliest contractor you'll ever meet). All of the personnel have been with Chateau Inn & Suites for so many years and the proof is in their "customer service!!" We'll be back again soon and miss you all already!
