I used this kennel on the recommendation of a collegue. The owner lives on premises and this is a privately owned kennel, so they take pride in what they do. I was a little anxious to leave my baby boy (20 month Rottweiler), since he's "particular" with people. He did well with the owner (female) and was well behaved. I thought he'd come back a little smelly since it's a kennel, but he came back clean. The owner remarked that he was a "clean" boy and didn't want to soil his kennel. My other dogs stayed behind at home with a petsitter coming in. I'm not sure if a kennel would work well with very tiny dogs. Kennels are kennels after all and 2 of my dogs would be able to fit thru spaces in between the gates. I have foo foo dogs and the noise level would probably disturb them. If you have a rough and tumble dog, this is a good choice because of the individual care he/she will get. I would use StoneHill Estates Kennel again for my one dog. They fed him his own diet and he is actuaully calm today, but not tired.
LOVE IT! I was excited to hear there was a new stop on our way down to the shore. We used to go to Roy Rodgers, but it's now longer there. The some of my favorites were there: Yeast rolls and Awesome Pot Roast. However, Grandma's meatloaf was not on the menu when I went during the week (all Golden Corral's I've been to inbetween lunch and dinner have this). The location is pretty accessible off the GSP.
Pretty good pizza. The waitress was nice. I stopped by there for a fountain Pepsi, always nice guys at the counter.
I will start with the positives: The owner or manager was present and he seemed pleasant. When we worried about getting our car out, he was there to move his car. Close to the boardwalk and beach. I was able to sleep at night, not noisy. The negatives: The place was very run down. I stayed in room 24.There were gouges, scrapes on the walls. The fire entinguisher was expired (have to be serviced within 12 calendar months). The tiles in the bathroom were cracked. The windows in the bathroom and off the bathroom do not close (glass slates) so it was rather noisy (the windows face the pool). Only one working light in bedroom. Hole in bottom of door to outside. The pool was small and had cracked/missing tiles (very dangerous). It seems that the motel caters to Muslim clientele. In of that I don't care but do not appreciate the stares b/c I chose to wear standard clothing to the pool (one piece with a skirt cover up). The women wore full head to toe ensemble in the small pool, which I think is dangerous to them and others who could get entangled in garments. In the small house: there seemed to be fire/building code violations. The floors/cabinets/etc were uneven. The bathroom floor's tiles were coming up. The tub's faucet's (can't even explain)!! The pictures on the website are not what you get. We selected this motel b/c we booked too late and this was the only vacancy- I know now why.
I was referred by a coworker who had been referred too. This office is great! They make tax filing a breeze. I've been happy with the speed, affordability and pleasantness of every transaction. I'd recommend them to anyone.
I had the unfortunate experience that my car didn't want to turn over and had to be towed to Don's (and Jim's) Sunoco. I had no concerns of the service/honesty here. I knew Jim beforehand and know firsthand that he's a nice guy. They are always busy, which says alot about them. The location is convenient, not too far off the highway. I live in Mahwah and would travel to use them in the future.
I was pleasantly surprised at the assortment of foods. The employees there were friendly and eager to help find an item. I saw a lot of customer interaction. I purchased some new brands that seem to be "whole" foods. They sell Nature's Variety raw, I'd give them 5 stars if they sold other brands.
I had used Oma's Pride for a couple of years, but stopped. The store I get it from said they had been having bad batches. I contacted Miller Foods and they denied it and passed the buck to the pet store. Then the pet store denies the whole thing ever happened(that they said the food was spoiled). Whatever. I won't buy Oma's Pride anymore since I have no idea who's to blame for all 4 of my dogs vomiting up the food.
I have only been there twice (not to purchase a puppy) and both times quite impressed with the cleanliness of the facility. The puppies weren't barking uncontrollably. The puppies did not have hacking coughs or runny eyes. I only saw healthy dogs. Because their is a need for pet stores (lots of rescues are wacky along with breeders), I would recommend this store. I think these folks care more than other pet stores.
The wait was long (it had just recently opened) and rather dark in waiting area. I didn't care much for my entree, but liked the salad and bread sticks. To their credit my dining partners liked the food. It's just that chain Italian restaurants don't excite me. I like fresh sauces made by real Italians, that's all.
