I ran the Seaside Half Marathon on October 14th and stayed at The Howard Johnsons in Toms River for the weekend. We had a wonderful stay. We have been there a couple of times this year and the manager, Jawad remembered us right away and greeted me with a smile. I feel that the staff provides a personal touch that is not seen in alot of other large hotels. Check in was efficient and our room was very clean which is what I look for in a hotel. The housekeeping service was wonderful. I found the WiFi to be pretty quick with an easy sign on. There is a bar and restaurant onsite which is very nice. All of the rooms have a mini fridge which is convenient. Another hotel in the area is by request and if available only on the mini fridge which I find inconvenient when you are staying for the weekend so I'm very happy with Howard Johnsons. The only amenity missing was the shampoo but this was not a problem as we usually bring our own. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a room with a kind size bed that included a desk and two chairs. It was a little cramped by the one side of the bed. I would suggest moving one of the chairs out.

Check in staff was great (Dan & Manager), brought extra pillows to our room & refused a tip! But dead & live crickets in the room were not fun. We were told by late night staff to use a hairdryer to scare away the crickets (not easy when it was attached to wall on the other side of the room) and that the bug spray was to smelly to use. We also had an extreamly bright wall light (main room light) missing its cover so we couldnt use it & desk lamp had no bulbs. Becauae we had an event to attend we just dealt with it. The beds were so soft, those outdated covers & the scratchiest blankets made sleeping a chore along with the constant chirping from the cricket. Breakfast was sadly to crowded & depleated to enjoy.

The staff was accommodating and the location was excellent. We like the restaurant in the complex and we ate there a lot. The carpet was dirty on the stairs. The is an old complex that they are updating. We liked the extra electrical outlets. I thought the bed was a little too firm for me but my husband liked it. It was quiet and we appreciated the elevator with all of our luggage. We stayed for a total of 9 days, so it was home away from home. It is not luxurious but is comfortable and a good value.
