No complimentary Breakfast or even coffee. Only option is expensive below average buffet which goes up 20% more on the weekend. $31.80 for 2 or you have to drive miles. Ruins my mornings. Indoor pool is nice feature.

I thought our stay at the TR Hotel was pretty darn good. The room was clean, even for being a smoking room. The pool area was clean and so was the sauna. The only thing that I didn't like it the fact that the breakfast that the hotel offers was a little over $13.00 and the buffet only had eggs... More

My back didn't recover from this bed for weeks. It was so uncomfortable-hard and lumpy. The room was musty and, even with the air on, never seemed to dry out. It is near the ocean so I can be somewhat flexible with this but it was pretty bad. Our clothes even started to smell. A cigarette burn in the quilt,... More

We stayed at the TR Hotel recently on an overnight visit. We were amazed at the transformation since it was taken over from Holiday Inn. The hotel has been refurbished and the rooms are immaculate. Service was terrific with pleasant and helpful people from the front desk on through. We will definitely return!

We needed a place to stay the night. The hotel was clean and within our budget. The only thing we weren't prepared for was the $50 refundable damage fee. But we were refunded so it was a minor inconvience.
