Bring your own pillows. Theirs have NO stuffing. The beds are nice and comfy. Make sure you get into a newer room. Our fist room was teeny tiny; a 3 foot clearance around a queen sized bed. We got moved to a room with two queens and it was delightful. First floor, doggy friendly. Within walking distance of an IHOP,...

The price is reasonable and the hotel was very clean. The staff was very nice. Great indoor pool and two restaurants to choose from. The rooms have a fridge, mircrowave and a large flat screen TV. I would absolutely stay there again.

The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant and the price was right. Stayed there to enjoy the beach a short drive away. The location was accessible to many restaurants and a short drive to Seaside beach, rides and arcade. Would stay there again.

Many of the reviews of this property are right on the money. The breakfast room is very small and crowded and only operational until 9 am. Our room on the first floor was clean and recently redone. There is no smoking permitted in the entire Hotel which is nice, but people are allowed to smoke on their balcony or patio...

I was looking for an affordable place near Seaside Heights for a two night stay. Based on the positive reviews I chose this Howard Johnson. I didn't expect luxury for $109 per night, but I did expect a clean room. Perhaps there are better and more updated rooms but I did request a first floor and they were fully booked....

My wife and I stayed at Howard Johnson site in Toms River, NJ for three nights. The place was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We roomed on the side away from Hooper Av. so we knew it would be quieter since Hooper Av. is a main route.
