    Hi,

    I’m coming to Lakewood in the summer and I’m looking for a place to stay for a couple and a baby for 2 night’s. Ideally under $200.

    Any Leads?

    Please advise

    Tip Tam Camping Resort, on the border of Jackson and Lakewood, shuls and groceries are 2 minutes away and fees are less the $50

    There is no Lakewood anymore.
    Rav Aharon Kotler ZTL took it with him to the olam haemes.
    It was now replaced with Brooklyn NJ with lots of basements to rent but the Kedusha of the Torah community devoted to Torah was removed R”L

    YungermanS, OP seems to be looking for a place to stay in the city of Lakewood. Brooklyn is in NY, quite a distance from the city of Lakewood. OP did not write “עיר הקודש”.

    If you want to discuss the holiness of Lakewood, I would suggest that you go back to this thread:

    yungerman: A charismatic leadership structure doesn’t survive the death of the person at the top. Coincidentally it is also commonly found in cults.

    AirBnb lists over 50 homes for rent on the first two shabbos weekends in August and even more for weekday stays.

    Common Saychel: The Ramada and several other hotels are available in the $200/night range.

    I think the OP wanted 100 per night, 200 total

    #2108994

    Do you know the history of Lakewood hotel? Who built it and why?

    AAQ, please share with us that information.

    “ymr: They looked up to me and tried to emulate me.“

    This is the funniest line I’ve seen today

    Another interesting observation is that commonsaychel didn’t call the person a troll and is actually trying to help a newcomer

    If it wasn’t for the aforementioned comment I would’ve thought I’m in a parallel universe

    Yup. The New Irvington Hotel was the winter residence of Tammany Hall back in the day.

    Sure, I grew up in NJ not far from Lkwd.

    “I think the OP wanted $100 per night, $200 total”

    Good luck. If you are lucky, for $100/night you are likely to get free bedbugs….Perhaps contact one of the local shuls/yeshivos and inquire about locals who rent out rooms or apartments in their homes. I don’t think any commercial hotel/motel will offer a clean/safe room at that price point.

    CS,

    I thought you were answering humorously, but you seem to seriously suggest this place Tip Tam Camping Resort.

    Have you ever stayed there?

    For 50$ you can camp out in a tent.
    Even for more, the cabins appear to be bare bones.
    Does it have any conveniences for frum people ?

    @jackk, No I never stayed there, I have a Brother in Jackson and a few nephews in Lkwd, was I half joking? yes, but that is the only thing your going to get in Lkwd for $50

    Common Saychel….you don’t get the free bedbugs at a campground…you may also encounter some difficulty in finding someone to light the campfire to warm up the blecch shabbos morning. Finally, check to be sure its located within the eruv.

    @GH use a dutch oven like I did when I camped

    CS: Great idea….I’m sure the OP can put the Dutch Oven in the baby’s carry on bag w/o raising any questions with the TSA security screeners.

    I’d say buy the DO stateside. I’ve had shabbos in the woods many a time while the fire pit held numerous dutch ovens. I neither eat nor cook cholent but I make an amazing white bean stew with lamb in a DO in the coals.

    @amil, “but I make an amazing white bean stew with lamb in a DO in the coals.”
    That is the PNW version of cholent

    Who thinks common saychel and godalhadorah should get married and argue at home instead of online?

    CS I will agree with you there. It’s not a traditional cholent that’s for sure!
