Reviews We Love

  • Heidi and Rachel were great to work with throughout the whole process – they were very diligent with responding to emails, and they were always very accommodating whenever I wanted to come check out the venue space to plan out the decor. Angel was simply incredible. He always made sure my husband and I were taken care of, and made the night flow so smoothly. The Versailles Ballroom was an incredible venue, and I couldn’t be happier with how well our wedding went. Heidi, Rachel and Angel are true professionals, and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    — Christine, Wedding, January 2018
  • My husband and I got married there on 9/15/17, and we could not have wished for a more perfect wedding experience. You can put your complete trust in the Versailles team, and I promise your wedding will be breathtaking.

    — Samantha, September 2017
  • The Versailles Ballroom is the perfect place to celebrate your special day! Melissa is amazing! I could not have asked for a better person to help us plan and orchestrate our dream wedding. From the moment we walked through the ballroom, we knew this was the place – beautiful with tons of space, a huge dance floor, and most importantly, it was affordable. Our day was everything we wanted, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, stress-free wedding experience.

    — Bride + Groom, May 2017
  • I can’t even put into words how simply amazing everything was! Heidi is a gem and is perfect at her job. She’s informative, kind, and simply loves what she does! Angel is a sweetheart. He is terrific!! They made our wedding a fairy-tale! I have NO complaints about anything! The venue is simply beautiful, the staff is great, and overall we are highly satisfied with everything!

    — April 2017 Wedding
  • My husband and I had an amazing experience at the Versailles Ballroom. The whole crew was fantastic and the night went so smoothly. Melissa and Heidi were a huge help and they made the planning process so much easier! Angel was the best!

    — Married July 15, 2016
  • We chose Ramada for so many reasons, the big dance floor, the awesome cocktail hour (as well as the room it is held in), the food choices, the affordability, and the location was perfect for us. The wedding day couldn’t have gone any smoother. Everything was set up exactly how we wanted. We didn’t have to worry about ANYTHING! Angel lives up to his name! He takes the worry out of your day so you can enjoy and have fun…. Thank you again, Angel! All in all, we truly had the best time.

    — Katie, October 2015 Wedding
  • The Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada in of Toms River exceeded our expectations more than we could have imagined. Throughout the whole process Heidi was so attentive and responsive to all our needs. If I had to do it all over again, I would STILL choose the Versailles Ballroom. I would recommend all my family and friends consider them when choosing their wedding venue. Thank you Heidi, Angel, and everyone else at the Ramada of Toms River!

    — Allison, November 2015
  • The wedding coordinators and staff at the Versailles Ballroom are amazinggggg! Not only are they all nice and helpful, but they anticipate your needs and worries before you even have time to worry! They make you feel at ease every step of the way! They work with you on everything from entree choices to napkin folding ! The icing on the cake? They have a great price tag!

    — Jennifer, August 2015
  • Heidi and Lauren truly care about their clients. In regards to Angel the Maitre D’, there are not enough words to describe the experience I had with Angel. He dealt mainly with the wedding itself as far as the set up and progression of the wedding. He did everything I asked and more! This is a dream team of members when it comes to putting on weddings/events.

    — Bride, August 2015
  • We saw so many different venues in the Jersey Shore area, but Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Toms River was the absolute best. Their ballroom is so elegant, with their huge chandeliers and gorgeous table settings. They also have a HUGE dance floor, perfect for having all of your guests dancing the night away. I would recommend Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Toms River to any couple who wants a beautiful, fun, and stress-free wedding.

    — December 2014 Wedding
  • My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the wedding that we had in the Versailles ballroom. From when we first booked with Heidi, she was so knowledgeable and sweet. Every time I emailed her questions or suggestions, she answered right away. Lauren was a sweetheart too! And Angel was truly the angel of the night! Really made sure our night was perfect! Our hotel suite was so beautiful! And everyone had such a great time! Food was delicious too! VERY HAPPY with our choice and would definitely recommend this venue.

    — Bride, June 2015
  • After getting a tour of the Versailles Ballroom, my husband and I booked our wedding immediately. Heidi was great, going above and beyond for some guests with food allergies. Angel was phenomenal! Not to mention, the food was delicious. Wouldn’t have had our wedding anywhere else!

    — Kerry, November 2014
  • We cannot say enough about the Versailles Ballroom in Toms River!! They did a phenomenal job from start to finish. From the first meeting with Heidi we knew we were in great hands. Heidi was attentive to our every email! The week of the wedding was a breeze!! Angel took care of all of our requests and executed all of my crazy DIY’s perfectly. We felt like royalty the night of the wedding and all of our guests are still raving about the food and our venue!! Just perfect from start to finish!!!

    — Jackie, August 2014
  • Everything was perfect. Angel was amazing during my wedding and set up the ceremony and reception spaces so perfectly I almost cried when I first previewed it. Heidi was awesome to work with – very down the earth and helpful. If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t change the venue at all! We traveled over an hour to go to this place and I’m so glad we did. Thank you!!!

    — Megan, August 2014
  • Although the ballroom and the cocktail hour room are gorgeous and the food was beyond fantastic, what REALLY made our wedding was Angel’s service. There was literally not ONE flaw or hiccup during our wedding reception; Angel ran the show like a pro and he did it all behind the scenes. He worked wonderfully with our DJ and photographer and made sure everything was perfect. He even selected his tie color to coordinate with our wedding colors!

    — Bride, July 2014
  • The facility was absolutely beautiful. The new renovations are amazing. The catering and sales staff are amazing. I knew after meeting Heidi and Angel that I was making the right decision on the venue. Their reputation of being the best is completely deserved. The planning was flawless. The execution the day of the event blew my expectation of perfect out of the water.

    — Heather, June 2014
  • They really understand weddings. They know what it’s like and they are there for you every single step of the way. By the time it was time for the wedding, I had no reservations. I knew everything would be wonderful thanks to them. When I walked into the reception space, I was completely blown away. Angel was able to flawlessly execute my vision. He was born to do this. I walked into the ballroom and was jumping up and down and crying because I couldn’t believe my eyes.

    — Bride, December 2013
