Leaking roof, Marijuana and cigarette throughout the hallways. AC not working.

Terrible hotel disgusting manager not go mention a man stabbed a lady in their lobby the night i stayed very ghetto i do not recommend

None of the ice machine’s were working The towels in room were like bounty paper towel In other words they stink

I found the surcharge for my dog to be excessive, and I don't think it was sufficiently communicated.

The blankets they offer are not thick enough or big enough. When we asked for extras they said they couldn’t provide us with an extra one

Nice room clean also had a balcony which made it awesome

It didn’t look anything like the pictures. It was way outdated and did not sleep sex like it was advertised

The pictures didn’t match what was online room was definitely outdated and false advertised online

Restaurant wAs very good. Room was small but ok had. King bed. Staff was nice and helpful.

Old and dingy just ok better properties at this price point

The hotel rooms are small and everything in the room is old including the carpet. The free breakfast was very poor. Very little selections. In the evenings there where very shady looking people in the hallways doing what ever. We did not feel comfortable. We will never stay here again. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The price was outrageous for this hotel.

Disgusting. Dirty. Stains on the rugs. Mon smoking room smelled awful. It would have been fine if it were an $80 room. But it was $142.

Its a convenient place if you just need a place to rest your head for a night and bath from the beach. Hotel is outdated. Nothing continental about breakfast, only hot waffles. Everything else was coffee and cereal. Bathrooms in rooms are dirty. Overall, it should be worth cheaper than what it cost.

NICE HOTEL AND NEAR WHERE WE HAD TO BE FOR BUISNESS

Had to book a hotel last minute for a funeral, and it turns out my family booked the same place. Staff is very friendly, and welcoming.Rooms are very nice, the place is centrally located, and the bar downstairs is great- not fancy, not a dive, but a good crowd. Breakfast buffet isn't much, but there's a decent IHOP across the lot.

We travel to Toms River once every other year or so to be with family and friends. This hotel has been my go-to for over 20 years. But after this latest stay, I'm sad to say I'll probably look elsewhere next time. I love the location, cleanliness is good, and the staff is very pleasant. But the property is getting old and in need of upgrade. The too-small bath towels were also really annoying: just one per adult. Since they're small to begin with, can't we have a couple extra?? We also needed one more pillow. There were three on the bed and no extras, leaving my husband and I to negotiate over who got the third one. Sheesh, leave four! To be honest, we'd have minded the aging property a lot less if the the towel and pillow situation hadn't pushed us over.

I am not from the area so I was unsure about the location and the hotel. I read reviews and went ahead and booked it! No frills or luxuries- but it was a clean room with friendly and helpful staff. Good hotel if you are on a budget. I did not visit the pool, but I did check out the continental breakfast. The coffee had room for improvement and their was limited selections of food. I came on a Friday night and it seemed like the bar/restaurant area was lively and peope were having a good time. I slept well and was not bothered by any noise or distractions.

Got to the hotel late and was welcomed with great service and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and had a nice view. Breakfast was good and got to use the pool which was very clean. Will be coming back.
