... to the beach, only 3 houses away. People were fishing, swimming, having a great time. It was a beautiful afternoon. Back to their house for cocktails and dinner.
Tues Sept 17--We had planned to spend the day at the beach but it was cloudy, windy, and cold. Rick drove us around the island to see some of the damage caused by Super Storm Sandy.
... life easier. The casinos are similar to how I remember vegas if considerably smaller and less labyrinth like. They also let natural light in from outside. And people smoke in them. I guess that's legal in Jersey. I find the sight of people at slot machines (which are all ticketed, no actual quarters here) in the middle of the day quite sad. I can see the attraction however. I think it's less about the money, more about entering a trance like state similar to types of ...
Atlantic City with Susy and family. Left early and drive 2 hours. Had lunch at a burger place while the family had Panda Express. Lay by the beach for a while. Had a quick swim. Played kick the ball with the kids. Walked along the boardwalk. Had funnel cake. Waaay too sugary! Had pizza slice and chicken parma with pasta and salad and baked potatoes. Drove back around 8. Had ice cream sandwich on the way ...
... Forest I believe). So we packed up the little day pack (that we use for the beach) with fresh cherries, sandwiches, drinks, etc., and Luke donned his Camelback water pack (which he loves) and we headed down the 1.8 mile Batsto Lake loop. It really was a nice hike. Not too long or too short, relatively cool amidst the trees, with fresh forest smells. No bugs (or very few). ...

Field Test - Awaiting results
There may be other items that I'll add to the list as we prepare for the trip, but these are the main ones I'm interested in testing as we'll use them most often. This is the first time I've prepared a list like this for my personal use, and I'm excited to see if it actually provides any insight into what makes for a comfortable and rewarding camping trip.

Historical Traveler Reviews Seaview, A Dolce Resort Galloway
The reviews on this site have helped us greatly so I'll return the favor by presenting the facts. My wife and I just returned from a 4 day trip to the Marriott Seaview. Overall, I'd rate it about 3.5 stars on a scale of 1-5. For comparision purposes, we are upper middle class that know top level service but usually aren't that picky!!! I'll break it down honestly.
Motel 6 quality/service at Ritz-Carlton prices
I don't know where to begin. The rooms are disgustingly dirty: spiderwebs all over the place, pubic hair on the bed linens, mold and mildew in the tub, the list goes on. This place is the most overrrated, overpriced hotel I've ever stayed in. Horrible service (takes forever to get an answer on the phone; front desk people have a major attitude; maid never threw out the trash the whole time I was there). It looks great from the outside, but on the inside the hotel is in desperate need of renovation and its staff needs an attitude adjustment. Unfortunately, the other hotels in the area are also substandard and overpriced. My advice: stay away from the Jersey shore.
Not worth it.
Around Christmas we stayed at this clean, lovely resort based upon a very reasonable package. We got the same room we paid $225 a night for the previous summer, for $83.00 a night. About the only thing missing is the golf, which we don't do anyhow. We still were able to get room service, the food was first-rate, and we still visited the nice lounge for an after-dinner drink.
Two disappointments- the parking wasn't available due to a large wedding, and there was no piano music in the lounge, like there usually is.
But the room cleanliness, the shower, the heat, were all first-rate. I wish for slightly better sound conditining, though.
Roaches - Yuck!
I only have one thing to say--ROACH INFESTED! My husband and I stayed here in November 2003 for my birthday. It was our first time in Atlantic City and we will likely NOT return. The hotel is older, but calls itself a "spa resort." We were only there for one night and the morning we checked out we saw not 1, not 2, but 3 roaches in the room as well as in the hallways. I was disgusted to say the least and made my experience known to the staff. Needless to say, we were not charged for the room, but that was the LEAST they could have done. We felt so contaminated when we left, we felt that THEY should have paid US for emotional distress.If you're thinking of staying--DON'T DO IT!
Do yourself a favor
Find a reason to visit the Marriott Seaview. Everything about this resort is First Class!From the time we checked in to the time we reluctantly left for home, I was amazed at the quality, the service, the convenience, the scenery, etc. Considering the time of year (late February) and the fact that they had 6 inches of snow only days before, the Bay Course was in excellent shape. The staff was friendlyand helpful. The rooms large and luxurious. The food in both the Grill Room and the Dining Room was very, very good. We enjoyed the excitement of Atlantic City and yet returned to this tranquil setting to relax and recover. Try this place....You're sure to love it!
My husband, son and I spent one night here for a quick getaway -- loved every minute of our visit! This place is beautiful, even with the renovation underway and snow outside. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful I've encountered, the indoor pool delightful, and the room comfortably appointed -- gorgeous chintz comforters, nice view, good size. We passed on Atlantic City (tho' the nightime view of the skyline was nice -- it's only 8 miles away) and headed to Brigantine for a snowball fight on the beach. Also enjoyed Smithville with its excellent Inn (lunch), shops and tons of ducks. Unless it's summer and you're a golfer or like Atlantic City, there isn't much to do. That's exactly what we wanted -- a restful mini-vacation in a beautiful place. And it's what we got.
For a stay at a "summer"-type golf resort, we had an incredible experience (even for non-golfers in the middle of winter). The rooms are nicely appointed, the beds the most comfortable we've ever slept in, the bathroom very large. Easily accessible to Atlantic City. They simply don't build them like this anymore, it's an impeccably-maintained early 20th century classic.
Elizabeth Arden Spa (actually part of the adjoining Fairway Villas timeshare complex) was awesome and easily accessible with shuttle van.
Can't wait to return and see the results of the major renovations (scheduled for completion by March, we were told). Even the numerous pitches to sell timeshares at the adjoining Fairway Villas didn't phase us.
My wife and I just had our second getaway weekend at the Seaview. We were just as pleased as we were on our first stay back in February. We stayed in a standard guest room in the Bay wing. The rooms are clean, bright, and tastefully decorated. We have never encoutered a staff member that wasn't courteous, cheerful, and helpful. One caution we would offer is that a guest needs to keep in mind that this is a luxury resort; not for the bargain-minded. The food is very good, and priced accordingly. A round of golf will cost you plenty, but you can get reasonable fees off-season and in the afternoon. With Atlantic City only minutes away, there are plenty of things to do in the area, all year long, so don't think you have be a golfer to enjoy this place.
Awesome get-away resort!
The Seaview Marriott, in Galloway NJ, proved to be the perfect get-away spot. Here are just a few items of interest: challenging golf course, relaxing massage, comfortable bed. Add those to a resort with pampering service, and you have yourself a wonderful visit. Thank you~ MLW from Vienna, Virginia
Marriott Fairway Villas at Seaview
Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend in 2003. This is the Marriott
time share resort adjacent to the Marriott Seaview Resort. All condo
units are 2-BR, 2-bath units with a full kitchen, which is great if
you're bringing kids. Units are extremely clean and well maintained.
All buildings are 3 stories high. Fairway Villas has its own outdoor
pool and an Elizabeth Arden spa on site. The condo units are on the
golf course. Golf pro shop and restaurant are in the Seaview Resort
next door, which is a bit of a hike walking so take the free shuttle
