“Great Service. Nice clean room.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I stayed here for a few nights while working on the barrier island for the hurricane response. The service was above par and the room was nice and clean. The breakfast was in the restaurant which is expensive unless you are an upgraded member with Priority Club (which I was). Otherwise I would not have paid for it. The restaurant service was above par as well. Great place for an extended stay in the area. They were very responsive for whatever need arose.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

I stayed with my team of TSA EDS workers at the hotel and the whole staff went above and beyond the call of duty and did so with a smile on their face most of the time. The staff were very helpful and accomodating. Any request whether big or small was handled with grace. The only thing and it was a very little thing was that the music in the hallways was a little loud and you could hear it in the rooms at night. Breakfast was very enjoyable and the service was great.

Recently stayed for three days in the Holiday Inn on Route 37 East, Toms River, NJ. The hotel was immaculate, quiet, and very accomodating. Even though they were sold out due to an overabundance of displaced people due to Hurricane Sandy, the staff went out of their way to please everyone. The breakfast buffet was sumptuous, and the staff, led by Jennifer, went over and above board. All in all, a perfect 10 stay.

We stayed here while volunteering for disaster relief, and the hotel was very accomodating, especially considering the state of the town. They have done a great job accomodating displaced residents and travelling workers. We may have been shorted a pillow or two, but the hotel is doing its best for a town in need! I've stayed at this hotel for years whenever I return to my hometown, and I plan on continuing that routine.

Thanks to Jennifer Schel for her service and accommodations. She is definitely a people-person. Being displaced from our beach home and needing last minute lodging, everyone was more than helpful. A pleasant atomophere and clean room made a great weekend.

Service was very friendly Jennifer Schel made us feel very welcomed and help make our stay easier while working Hurricane Sandy.
The rooms were clean and they cleaned them every day from top to bottom nothing was left undone unless requested other wise. We were staying there when hurricane victims were there due to no other place to go. Staff went out of the way to make sure all had what they needed.
We would stay there anytime we are in Tom's River due to the great staff and accommodations provided by this Holiday Inn. This Hotel cares about it's guests.
