This place stinks. Supposed to be a non-smoking room but I can still smell residual smoke. Bed pillows are the size of couch pillows (see photos). We had to ask for extra pillows and all we got were more couch pillows. The pool is dirty and very dated as is the whole hotel. The place is dingy. No other word... More

What a great group of people doing the utmost best that they can. The management and owners should do the following: 1. Replace the carpet in the hallways, it is time, it is tethered and worn and grimy looking and smells. NOTE: The staff is going the extra mile, excuse me for the lack of vernacular in keeping this place... More

I stay at this hotel alllll theeee timeeee. My family lives within a mile of it, and while you might be able to save a buck down the road, you have to think about what you lose for that buck.

After a hot day at the beach The TR Hotel is just a few miles away. We will certainly be staying here again. The cheese steak I had for dinner at their 'Palms' restaurant was outstanding and the delmonico steak superb! The indoor heated pool was clean and just right for swimming after braving the freezing ocean. The rooms were... More

The place itself was very clean....i dont have a bad thing to say really. Close to seaside heights and the parkway. Close to the mall and places to eat. The rooms were decent size and the pillows were normal(not pancake flat like some places)

My family stayed here over night for a wedding in the area. It was just "ok". It was relatively clean, but, you could smell the remnants of an old "smoking room". This old Holiday Inn is acceptable for a quick one-nighter, but notmuch more than that.

Staff was great - very accommodating. Rooms were clean and spacious. We would definitely stay here again when in Toms River. Close to restaurants and shopping. Only a short drive to the beach. Only suggestion, request a microwave and refrigerator if needed - they're not included in every room.
