June is officially here and that means it's officially beach time! You guys know that I'm always looking for fun weekend getaways with the kids (and without!) and the Jersey Shore is always one of my top choices for short and sweet staycations. We truly have some hidden gems so I wanted to share with you in case you are looking for some nice - out of the norm Jersey Shore hotel ideas. I've been discovering some amazing spots along the NJ Coast Line and of course I want to share them with you all, so let's get this beach party started!

THE SHORE HOUSE - WILDWOOD, NJ

While browsing Airbnb during the early spring months, I came across this hella cool and chill hotel in Wildwood. As a creative, the attention to detail and aesthetic drew me in right away. The Shore House used to be an old run down motel, Kevin, the current owner, flipped the whole property and turned it into the coolest Jersey Shore hotel I've ever seen. You can rent different size home style apartments depending on your needs. Each apartment has a kitchen and living area, you can book a 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom or 3-bedroom! The amenities are so well thought out... they have bike rentals, yoga mats and even grocery delivery at your request! Yes, you read that right.

I love the location, close to all the fun stuff, hello boardwalk! and of course near all the delicious restaurants. The bonus? It's dog friendly and has a dog beach too.

WAVE RESORT - LONG BRANCH, NJ
This luxury boutique hotel is the newest addition in Long Branch Beach. It opened just a couple of weeks ago on Memorial Day weekend and I am eager to book a stay just Dave and I! The luxe vibe and gorgeous style makes this the perfect getaway this summer. It's located right on the beach front, along all the Pier Village attractions. If you've been to Long Branch Beach, you know it's the perfect location among all the great shops and restaurants. Every room has a private balcony and wall-to-wall windows, a bloggers dream! The amenities are top notch, so if you are looking for a top of the line fabulous stay down the shore, you should look no further. Oh and yup, they offer bike rentals!!


HOTEL LBI - LONG BEACH ISLAND, NJ
I haven't been to LBI in a few years, but the times I have visited I fell in love with the calm and relaxing scene. The beach is beautiful and it definitely makes for a perfect family staycation. As soon as I saw NJMom post about this new hotel called Hotel LBI, I knew I had to research and check it out! So naturally, I wanted to share with you guys because it's so nice and if you are looking for a getaway without flying, I think this can be the hotel for you. I love the whole cozy mood of the hotel. It's beautiful and luxurious, perfect for a fun time with the family. I honestly don't think I would ever want to leave! 


THE ASBURY HOTEL - ASBURY PARK, NJ
If you know me, then you knoooow Asbury Park is my favorite beach down the Jersey Shore. I love the diversity, the bars, the food options, the fun vibe and of course, the beach itself. Asbury is actually pretty close to my house, at about 40-45 minutes away, so we've never stayed the night but if I had to stay for a night I would definitely choose The Asbury Hotel. I love the decor and the atmosphere. It's a little cozy, a little rock n roll... it's just down right cool AF.  Reminds me so much of NYC.

I love how diverse the hotel is, there's something for everyone. Want to do yoga? They gotchu! Bar and chill vibes? It has amazing bars to lounge area overlooking the ocean. There's also an outdoor movie theater called Baronet, catch that on a nice summer night... dream come true! The pool is pretty awesome too, with cabanas, lounge chairs and fire pit. Definitely a hotel to add to your list of must do's!

Like Nikki says... "let's go to the beach, beach, let's go get away..." see you down at the Jersey Shore! Catch me there sippin' on a nice margarita. Nos vemosss!
