Recently, we had to stay in Toms River for my fathers funeral. We were fortunate enough to choose the TR Hotel. As it turns out we had to stay even longer than anticipated due to a snow storm. Everyone there was so compassionate and helpful. They could not be nicer! There was always a fresh container of citrus ice water... More

My Family stayed at this wonderful Hotel, TR Hotel in Toms River NJ. We arrived 02/11/2015. I can't express enough the warm greeting we had when we arrived. The employees were excellent, our room was perfect, the girls at the front desk were amazing. Especially Jennifer Hayden Schel. Front office manager. She is the hardest worker I even seen there....

Recently my husband and I had to have work done on our home and we were unable to stay at our house. We choose the TR hotel due to the close proximity to our home. For the next seven nights we stayed at the TR hotel. The staff could not have been more welcoming to us we were greeted by... More

You can't beat the rate in the area - great customer service, but very basic hotel and rooms. The TR does the best they can with the hotel they have and it's enough for me to rate them from what would be 3 to 4 stars. If you are looking for more then be prepared to spend more in the... More

I don't know where to begin to express how happy we were with our daughter's Sweet 16 party. Jennifer Marvel was amazing in the whole planning process and she made sure every detail was attended to. Sharon was our Maitre D' and she outdid herself. They both took the time to make sure we were completely happy with everything. The... More

I was needing a place to stay for an undetermined length of time. My Mom was in the hospital, then in hospice. I didn't know if I was staying a few days or a few weeks. The staff was marvelous! The care and comfort was appreciated at such a time. Besides a great rate for the room, "Thanks, Carlos!" ,... More

We needed a cheap, clean place for a couple of nights off-season. The customer service was exceptional. Everyone was extremely accommodating and flexible. We were met with enthusiasm by Jennifer and Moira was very friendly in the bar/restaurant. The heaters were loud and the rooms are no-nonsense, but it was perfect for what we needed.

Wow - I am astounded by the wonderful friendly service by all staff members at this hotel. Jennifer, the front office manager, is unfailingly cheerful. She remembered all our names and room numbers when she greeted us each day. The rooms themselves are fine, clean, coffee maker. Looks like you can request a fridge if you want one. The heaters...
