[vcf-midatlantic] OT: Recommendations for Hotels in InfoAge area

My wife and I have stayed at that Residence Inn a couple times and it remains our top pick when the price is right.

Lately, it hasn’t been, or it’s been booked, so we’ve been staying at the Hampton Inn Neptune/Wall, which I’d also recommend.

Both these hotels are near the outlet mall, which is a useful amenity to me as there are EV chargers there.  (The Hampton Inn /might/ also have some but now I can’t find evidence they do.)

In pre-pandemic times, I’ve stayed at an AirBnB in Belmar that I enjoy, if only for the resident feline staff. :)

We also found the Sea Girt motel perfectly decent the one time we stayed:

My first time at VCF East I hadn’t really researched other than “sort by price,” and consequently I will NOT recommend the motel on Rt. 33 which I can’t even find on Google Maps anymore.
