Officials have approved the application of a Toms River developer to demolish a troubled motel and replace it with a new, four-story hotel building that will bear the name of a brand name chain.

C. Seaside Heights Hospitality, LLC won the approval of the Toms River Zoning Board of Adjustment last week to replace the Pine Rest Motel with a 72-room Hampton Inn. The company, which purchased the property in 2008, will demolish the current building, a frequent site of arrests and police calls.

The property received state approval in May and won local approval July 20. Plans call for a four-story building with 72 parking spaces. The new hotel will more than double the size of the current motel, which has 28 rooms.
