What a disappointment. We booked 2 rooms at the Howard Johnsons in Toms River, NJ. From the outside it looked fine, and the halls were clean. The main reason we booked was the newly renovated pool for my 2 grandchildren.. Upon arrival they went to the pool and found it disgustingly filthy with dirt on the bottom, and hair floating... More

We rented 2 rooms for 4 people at a bargain rate to join friends at a reunion. As we were leaving we suddenly had a need to host an afternoon for 12 more people. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We had a great lunch at a reasonable price, teens swam in a lovely pool and... More
