2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We visited my hometown of Toms River for the 50th reunion. I was disappointed with this hotel. The rooms and hotel smelled, the carpeting needs replacing and the mattress on our bed was old. We had breakfast at the hotel. The staff was friendly. The food was adequate. The best part of the hotel was the indoor pool.

After moving out to Central PA I often come back to NJ to visit family and this hotel is pretty conveniently located. Clean and comfortable with a friendly staff, especially Bhumi. The wifi didn't work (I suppose if I cared more I could have called and asked for assistance -- and judging by the helpfulness of the staff, except the... More

The staff at T.R. Hotel was absolutely amazing from the beginning of planning our wedding to the end of cleaning up.

My boyfriend and I were traveling in New Jersey in April 2015 and made a last minute reservation at the TR Hotel via Priceline bidding. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel's interior, especially at the low price that we paid. The rooms were cozy and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was a bit outdated in terms of the overhead... More

We came back to Tom's River, NJ to visit family. After just giving away our motor home, we needed a hotel. We could not have asked for a cleaner hotel...or a more gracious staff.....from front desk to management...houseman to cleaning....maintainence to restaurant help with free coffee. Fresh smelling linens, and the most comfortable beds were greatly welcomed. This was not... More
