Good hotel in New Jersey Jul 27, 2008
This Howard Johnson hotel in Toms River, NJ, was perfectly located for our visit to some old acquaintances. It is easily accessible and nicely shaped. Each wing has its own entrance and you cannot enter another. You can only open the door with your keycard, so the building is very safe. Around the hotel are a lot of parking spaces, which is ideal of course.
The welcome was friendly and the lobby neat. The room itself was quite large, and the ceiling height was large as well.
There were two double beds, a desk and a couple of chairs, a tv, fridge and bathroom. All were clean. The room also had a balcony.
Furthermore, the hotel has 2 restaurants and a breakfast room. The breakfast room has self-service and the products provided were mostly pre-packed, but good as breakfast. You could also toast your bagels and fresh coffee, tea and juices were available.
The bar has a good atmosphere and you can have a drink and a snack there. We also ate at the restaurant, which is, in contrast to the rest of the hotel, extremely formal. Or at least, they tried to be very formal. The food was not that special, but tasty anyway.
A negative point was that the walls of the rooms were very thin and you could hear the neighbors, which in our case were very loud. The hotel has a rule that after 10 p.m. you must be calm and keep your voice down. We let the receptionist know our complaint and she took care of the noise.
The other thing I noticed was that the decorations in the hotel did not match each other. There were a lot of different styles going on and it looked a bit messy.
I can recommend this 'HoJo' to travelers in New Jersey. It has a good value for money (we paid around $60-70 per night).
