I checked in to the Quality Inn after spending two nights at a nearby hotel where I had issues with the internet connection. To say I lucked out with the internet issues and had to change hotels for the remainder of my nearly two week stay is an understatement. Just to touch on all the highlights, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean, spacious with LCD televisions, a fridge, internet...essentially everything you need. Location is great, especially for those traveling to the base nearby, it's a 10 minute drive at most. Restaurants are plentiful in the area so another plus for the location...however, you won't need to find breakfast as the Quality Inn has a great free breakfast daily. Not a normal continental breakfast but eggs, pancakes, french toast, yogurt, muffins, bacon, sausage, fruit...pretty much everything. No sense in going to ihop when you have such a selection for free! Also the bar has happy hour daily with half off appetizers and drinks, nice setup with whatever sports interest you on display.
Now I ended up having to extend my stay an extra two nights (on a busy weekend at that) and I was worried that I'd have to change hotels again as I was told earlier in the week that the weekend was fully booked. However, I made a request to the management who quickly worked to ensure I didn't have to leave their hotel for the next two nights. It seemed that no sooner did I make the request did I receive a call back saying they were able to find a room for me (what a relief and thank you Lisa!) down the hallway from where I was currently staying. So I didn't have to hassle with changing hotels, and I got to try out a different room and was pleased just the same...clean, spacious, perfect as could be.
If you are staying in the Toms River area for a short trip or an extended stay like I did, do yourself a favor and book way ahead for the Quality Inn, you'll be glad you did. I know I'll be staying here again in my future trips!
