Go somewhere else!

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything. Maybe if the top management changed, if there is any management.
Location: It is close to the airport, but that just made it noisier. There is nothing near by
The bathroom was gross. There was a $15 charge for parking my car overnight. The staff seemed completely disinterested. There really wasn't anything good to say about it!

You get what you pay for!

Posted Aug 22, 2014
This hotel is cheap, and convenient, but is NO place to stay, if you need a good nights rest after a long day of walking the NYC streets! The hotel is located by the airport, so the plans take off at all hours of the day/night, flying right over the hotel, with the loudest noises that would wake up even the deepest sleeper! Secondly, the rooms have no sound proofing whatsoever. Anytime A guest closes their heavy room door, the sound can be heard into your room a few doors down. We had neighbors next to & across from us, that decided to party all night..... We could hear everything they did. Myself & 4 other guest talked in the lobby once about the noise, and how the staff did nothing about it. As polite as the staff are, nobody was confident enough to take charge, and asks the noisy guests to be respectful! They were obviously afraid of confrontation, or loosing business. In my 3 nights stay I had to call down x7, begging for some peace & quiet..... But there was no relief! I would not recommend this hotel to anyway! Its cheap, but you get what you pay for!

Vacation in New Jersey

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Close to the airport and a great staff. well equipped gym, great and affordable breakfast.
Cons: Local calls within New Jersey from the hotel phone was classified as long distance. I called the desk and did not get help with that.
Location: The location is just perfect, I felt really safe. There was information stand in the reception with pamphlet about all the attractions in New Jersey.
My experience at Howard Johnson hotel in Newark, was great. First of all, we were picked up by hotel-airport shuttle. I came in with my 2 boys ages, 8 and 12 and received a very warm reception when we checked in. The room was very clean and homely, The bathroom was exceptionally clean. We wanted to visit New York, fortunately for us, we were informed by staff in the reception that there was a bus that comes directly to the hotel to pick up guest to New York and back. This information made our visit to New York less stressful. my boys and I enjoyed every moment of our stay in Howard Johnson Hotel Newark. I strongly will recommend this hotel anytime.

Cheap and clean place to stay.

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Location to Newark airport
Cons: Decor is very dated
Room was clean but basic, didn't expect much for the price we payed. We only stayed one night that was enough. The staff were very helpful. The best thing was the shuttle service to New York.
