Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Hotel Toms River

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Time"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I recommend this hotel for the price. It is well worth it. Half hour away from Point Pleasant. I would stay there again as the front desk was very friendly.

Response from Management on 12-Aug-2015:
Thank you for sharing your trip with us. We appreciate your business. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay and found the hotel was conveniently located, clean, quiet, and comfortable place to stay with a restaurant on-site so you did not have to drive anywhere. We are delighted to see that you will be returning soon and looking forward to seeing you again.
"Need Lots of Work and Updating"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We checked in being told a non-smoking hotel, but we were given a key to a room that reeked of smoke. I went back to the front desk, got a key to another room which wasn't any better, but took the room with the hope that the smell would go away and it did not. The hotel is in need of updating in every way. The staff was helpful one time and not the next. We had our dog with us so hotels in this area are limited. The breakfast that was offered was of poor selection and not very appealing. We were very disappointed that we left earlier than expected instead of staying the last night we had already paid for.

14-Oct-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Sep 05 to Sat Sep 27 2014 at a $79.00 group rate (26% discount).
"Very Pleased"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Found hotel room and bathroom to be very clean with an easy outside entrance. Th room was small, but adequate with a clean refrigerator. Front desk staff was courteous with no waiting for check-in and help. Easy access to two highways. Continental breakfast selection also included waffles.

"Wasn't Horrible"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I needed to bring my dogs over night so I was very careful to make sure my reservation was for a pet friendly room. When I showed up to check in they did not have my reservation showing pet friendly. The room was on the first floor and had a sliding door to sit outside. The door was nearly impossible to open and close. They gave us the WiFi password and neither of us could connect to it. The room had an odor. We didn't see any signs of bugs or get bitten. Overall not my worst experience. For one night it was okay. I wouldn't stay there for a longer stay.
