Days Hotel Toms River Jersey Shore

Reviewed December 11, 2012

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.

We were refugees from Hurricane Sandy and were fortunate to stay at this hotel. The staff, especially Jennifer Schel and Nicole at the front desk, were extremely compassionate and did everything they could to make all the evacuees feel calmer in the midst of a crisis, celebrating good news and cheering you up when things weren't going well. They put in long hours during the storm and stayed professional under tough circumstances. My thanks and my family's thanks for their being there for us and all the others in our circumstances.

We have stayed at this property many times before with good experiences but this time was not as great.

The issues that we had were:
1) Check-In- The front desk worker was cold and not welcoming. She did not say more than can I have a credit card or here are your keys. It felt like she was just going through the motions and did not explain anything about the hotel. She did not recognize my Platinum Status or was the first time in about 3 years of staying at Holiday Inn that I did not get a welcome gift.

I learned that they were still offering the free breakfast when I went down to the restaurant in the morning.

2)Housekeeping: 2 Days we were there, we were not given new towels and I had to go to the front desk to get towels. I was told it would not happen again and it did for a second day.

3)HVAC: Everytime the HVAC went on it sounded like a jetliner was taking off. We had to turn it off at night as it would wake us up each time it went on. I contacted the front desk about it but nothing was done.

4) Paper Thin Walls: I could hear everything going on in the room going on in the room next to us and the hallway on the other side.

The good:
The rooms were recently renovated with new furniture and bathroom sink. The bathtub was still in rough shape.

The free breakfast for Platinum and Golds was very nice with a good selection of items.

In the end, this stay will cause us to possibly look for another options when we visit our family in the area.

Dear ktpc2005,

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide the best accommodations to our guests.

The entire staff, including our front desk representatives, are typically always given wonderful praise as you can see from previous Trip Advisor reviews. We apologize that your experience was different, and we will take the appropriate measures to ensure this will not happen in the future.

Housekeeping is not allowed to enter rooms with a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door. This could have been the reason your room was not attended to for your stay.

We see that you have had excellent stays at the Holiday Inn Toms River before from your previous reviews. We hope this recent stay has not deterred you from staying with us again in the future.

Sincerely,

Holiday Inn Toms River
