10/10 Exceptional

The 'Premier' Hotel in Great Bay is terrific value
The SeaView was the first hotel in Phillipsburg, opening in 1940. It has clearly been modernized--excellent a/c, tv, modern windows, bathroom fittings, but is currently being completely refurbished following a change of ownership during the pandemic. The building works while we were there were not a problem but will add a swimming pool, and more luxurious fittings to the rooms. The breakfast service was suspended during our visit but the Double Dutch Cafe on the front towrds the sea offered excellent coffee, juice and criossants. Currently the overnight rate is excellent value--prices will no doubt go up once the restoration work has finished. it will still be a great place to stay while in the Great Bay area.

Our opinion about the hotel is not all that bad. But i do feel if they should give their place a makeover. Especially the bedroom doors need a good paint job, but otherwise everything else was good.

It was OK.
We paid $150 per night. For half that I would have given it a great rating. For this price it was a bit disappointing. The staff were very nice but overall it needed attention. An ice bucket but NO ice anywhere on the premises. Ok, I can live with that. Shower was marginal. Very poor sound insulation. Just a bit neglected. Especially for the price. I see two factors causing this. 1. Still coming back from hurricane damage. 2. New owners that are not putting in the effort.

6/10 Good

Very tired and worn out. Possibly due to the remnants of Hurricane Irma. When I asked for a second chair for our room, the response was that there's only one desk, so only one chair. The continental breakfast included a thermos of not hot water, two boxes of tea bags, an almost empty jar of instant coffee and styrene cups. Of course, you could always purchase something from their vending machines providing you have the exact price. The bars on the boardwalk generally don't serve breakfast unless you're in the mood for a liquid meal. I admit that I chose this hotel for the low price, but never again. This property was rated 3 stars...I would have a hard time giving it two stars.
