My family and I have been staying here for the past 3 years.....close to Island Beach State Park and Seaside boardwalk. The staff is very acommodating...I asked for a refrigerator in my room and was promptly given one. If I had any issues, Jennifer at the front desk was wonderful and helpful. She always had a smile on her face... More

We chose this hotel because it was close to family. When we arrived to our room it was late, so all we wanted to do was hit the sack. When I went to prepare the sofabed for my daughter there were no sheets. I wasn't about to go down to the desk, so we had her sleep with us. The... More

The staff was excellent in every way. They took care of issues in a very expedient manner. When a problem was brought to their attention, they acted on it and rectified the issue at hand. I could not have asked for a better staff for my class reunion. Excellent job by everyone and we look forward to possibly coming back... More

I'd like to thank Jennifer at the Tom's River NJ holiday inn for her great personality and helpfulness. She went above and beyond to help me when I needed it most. Great deal with the gym down the road too.

Thank god for this hotel. We arrived to seaside to the worst hotel ever ( village inn) and just could not stay there. We checked in ( they only had smoking available) and it was just great and they offer military pricing! Front desk was very helpful. Will definitely stay here again...thank you!

I found this hotel to be very average. The rooms could be in better condition, the wall paper in the bathroom was coming away from the wall, the shower had no pressure and the bath had no plug. My bathroom light did not work as well as my alarm clock. As priority club member I had requested not to be... More
