The Chateau Inn

In the small town of Spring Lake, ....there is the most comfortable little hotel called The Ch√Ęteau Inn. From the very first glance I knew I was going to love it. The lighting was moody and atmospheric, adjusted just the right way as to accentuate the looks of the guests staying here. Upon entering the room I was happy to see a big king size bed with comforter and large pillows making me feel at ease immediately. The room was cozy, perfect for two , and adjoined by an entertainment room just behind it with a big leather couch , a bar and a nice HD flat screen TV. The expansive porch off the bedroom , overlooking the town's park was "picture perfect". We opened a bottle of bubbly purchased at the liquor store next door, (the hotel suggests that you BYOB), turned on some jazz music, sat back on the big comfy couch and relaxed for a little while before heading out for dinner...After an evening in this small town---how do I describe it in a word ? --upscale , affluent-- well thats two words but I think those words will go a long way in describing the whole town of Spring Lake,NJ. Here are a few others: well- dressed, Ferrari, Lamborghini, mansions, and what I will assume is lots of old money (although we all know what happens when you assume).

The next day we woke to see many happy, well dressed families at the Inn's lobby/dining area. Their serve yourself-style breakfast included fresh pastries, muffins, coffee and tea....confirming that optimism does exist even in Spring Lake NJ ;--)

We recommend the Chateau Inn for a romantic autumn or winter stay as many rooms are equipped with fireplaces and deep jacuzzi tubs.
