I don’t know what pictures they are posting on their website when you book this room, but they were def not for this hotel. The rook was dated and in green. The lampshades were crooked and the tv was so blurry. There was black hair in our bathtub, I had to clean out before my kids could take a bath. The room below us was smoking so if we went on the balcony or opened our door to outside all we smelled was smoke. Then later they decided to smoke marijuana and it came up through the fan in our room we had to put a blanket over it to keep the smell out. The only redeeming qualities are it was close to the beach and the girl at check in was nice.

The shower was absolutely horrible. Lukewarm at best with no pressure. I've had better showers at a campground. By far. The toilet seat was broken. The place was much better 10 years ago.

OK- where do I start? First of all, the walls are so thin that you can hear the people in the next room having a normal conversation level discussion. Second, the cold water tap at the bathroom sink didn't work at all. Third, the wall paper was peeling off the wall in the room and the bathroom. Fourth, that was NOT a queen size bed and the springs in the bed were broken. Fifth, for a non-smoking room it reeked of cigarette smoke. Sixth, the carpeting had cigarette burn marks in it and so did the plastic bath tub. I could go on about how the TV didn't work right and the other problems, but why bother?

The hotel is great and in a good location, close to everything. Staff is very nice and price is reasonable. This time we stayed in room 114 and for some reason the pillows were shot and so was the matress. I would stay here again but hope it would be more comfortable. I have to say in the past it was comfortable. The room should be checked.

Good staff and facilities. The breakfast should be somewhat more varied and last for more time (at least 6 to 10 am).

Room looked nothing like the picture...very out-dated. Pillows were flat and uncomfortable. When we asked for extra pillows, only one extra could be found. Pool was very green and not appealing.

Old, smelly worn out hotel

Pros: The pillows
Cons: Renovate the entire hotel and get rid of the night staff
Location: Located in Toms River, NJ 25 mins from the beach.
The hotel had a smell of cigarette smoke-all the way to the room itself. There were signs all over about it being a non-smoking facility but it was evident that the hotel had a past and a total refurbish would be needed to get rid of the smell. The bathroom door did not close and the closet was off track. The hotel was cheesy on the toiletries- only shampoo on the counter. The towels were rough and abrasive. The carpet was dirty and stained, furniture was worn and beat up. The room I had was on the road side and it was evident as I heard the cars go up and down the road all night. The door to the room also had large gaps so I heard anyone walking up and down the hall. When I checked in the hotel it seemed the receptionist was annoyed she had to get up from her desk to attend to me (appox 9pm). She never greeted me nor told me to have a good night. The receptionist in the am was much more friendlier and accommodating.
