Literally our home away from home. My husband and I stayed here for 8 weekends from June- August as a summer shore retreat, overnight Sat. nights. Hate to leave. Immaculate, very friendly staff, very reasonable buffet breakfast, pool, gym, pub. What else do we need?

Room Tip: ALL rooms are meticulous and cheery. A/C's work perfect in any room. Carpets so clean you can...

I continue to use the Clarion Hotel for meetings and overnight stays. We all enjoyed the updated sleeping rooms and everyone commented on how clean the hotel is. We enjoyed the fast service at Ike's Pub. Very good food and drinks.... Everyone we met had a smile on their face. Breakfast is a nice hot buffet. I'll be back again!

Room Tip: 2nd floor on the east side is close to the exercise room.

Because of my business I utilize the Clarion Hotel in Toms River NJ as both a meeting site and a place to stay. The rooms are consistently clean and up to date. The staff has always been attentive to our every need. And what better way to start your day than one of their breakfasts. Whenever I needed a meeting room again consistency is the word that comes to mind. My guy George takes care of all the details of the meeting room. Coffee is fresh and the equipment the hotel supplies is always working and ready to go. That is one less worry when preparing for a presentation. –Ken, Aetna Medicare

Room Tip: also a great location for a trip to the Jersey Shore!

I was traveling to Atlantic City for a conference and was with my wife and six year old son. We weren't sure where we were going to stop that night but got tired near Toms River and found the Clarion Hotel by chance. What an unexpected pleasure!! We felt like VIP's from the moment we arrived; as if we were minor celebrities with an entourage. Kindness and courtesy would be an understatement. Any of our needs were handled smoothly and they'd charmed our son. We enjoyed it so much that we began looking for local attractions in order to schedule a quick getaway in the future. (Forgot to mention a lovely breakfast buffet). AND IN TOMS RIVER!!! WHO'D HAVE EVER THUNK THAT!

This is the second time that I stayed there and I must say that its an excellent stay! The staff is great and always willing to assist. The restaurant is really good and my favorite was the Philly French Dip. I had to book multiple rooms for business and out of all the rooms nobody had anything but great things to say. There is multiple conference rooms for your business needs. I strongly recommend this hotel if you stay in Toms River or have to work at the nearby Military Base. Lisa and the staff thanks again.

I booked my stay at this hotel because there were no available hotel options near LBI. The drive was about 40 minutes to Surf City, so not ideal but not too bad considering my options. It was clean enough and ok for the price. I paid $140 plus tax a night. Main negative is that the focus is on events and not the hotel. The bar is open on Friday and they had a wedding on Saturday. It is not really separate form the lobby so you're forced to walk through (literally) these events. Breakfast special in the morning was $10 for the room. Great price decent buffet food, but no service. Expect to help yourself and find utensils, etc. I used the gym. Small converted room with treadmill, cross trainer, universal gym and bike. It works. Forget about daily newspapers in the morning. I was up at 7:15am and they were gone. I told the front desk to just order more to accommodate guests, but the staff didn't seem to understand this being an issue. I also showed up early for check in. I was told they would store my stuff in a locked room, but when I returned it wasn't locked. I think the staff could be trained better in hotel customer satisfaction. Overall my experience was just OK (Average). My recommendation is to stay somewhere else, if you have the option.

Room Tip: Take a room behind front desk. Not in conference wing.

I have stayed at other hotels in this vicinity when traveling on business and Clarion is by far the best. It's always very clean, the staff is friendly, knowledgable and always happy to accommodate. After working all day, I look forward to a great burger at Ike's Pub. Thanks Clarion for always being my home away from home.
