Simple hotel, nothing special. The room we got was clean and pleasant. We stayed at the hotel for one night, there were lots of families with small children but it did not bother us. There is not much to do there but it is certainly a good option to stay for one night.

Marisa F. From New York We come to the Jersey Shore often and I will now come back to TR Hotel every time!

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend - it was very clean, comfortable beds, good a/c, fast and free wi-fi. I did get woken up every night by noisy/drunk people in the hallway during the wee hours of the morning, but as many people likely stay here to enjoy summer vacation, my guess is that this will happen at...

To make a long story short, We planned a trip to Seaside Heights NJ in August, last week. We booked a motel in Seaside that looked nice online and in the pics and had the best reviews. However, the place was disgusting and when we tried to check in late, they gave someone else our room and tried to put... More

Stayed with my family and another family for a weekend trip to Seaside Heights. The rooms were very clean. I had a refrigerator and microwave brought to the room for a small fee. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel manager Jennifer is terrific!! She runs a tight ship, and it shows. Would definitely stay there again.

Checked into hotel at 10pm and checked out at 10am. Room was clean, aside from some stains on the pull out couch. The bathroom was new and relatively updated. The shower head was a little low, only 5'7 and i had to duck to get my head under it. Perfect for a quick overnight stay, on a budget. Close to... More

I recently stayed here with my 4 year old daughter for a mix of work and leisure. I was pleasantly surprised how close it was to the beach / boardwalk (about a 10 minute drive). Only a few minute drive from the hotel is everything that you need, gas stations, grocery stores, kmart etc. The hotel restaraunt staff were very... More
