Nice hotel near airport

Posted May 27, 2015
It was a nice stay overall. The shuttle service could've been a little more reliable but overall it wasn't bad. I could rate the service really bad but I have to take into account that service will be nothing like southern hospitality. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't amazing. The overall cleanliness was good. The location was very convenient as well, a good 7 minutes from the airport. I would stay again if opportunity arose.

Perfect for short stays close to Newark Airport.

Posted May 19, 2015
Pros: Very authentic. No frills. Cheap and cheerful.Thats all you need.
Cons: English tea bags please.............and carton milk not just coffee creamer for visiting Brits.
Location: Nothing close by but perfect location to airport and New York City.
Our stay at the Howard Johnson Hotel was comfortable, clean, and convenient. Suited our budget perfectly. All staff were friendly and happy to help, unlike other more upmarket hotels nearby where we stayed on route. Ok it shows its age inside a bit but don't under estimate this hotel. Shuttle service into NYC great price at just 25 dollars return. Free shuttle to Newark Airport just 15 mins away. Small restaurant on site serving a variety of nicely cooked food and fab pizzas, very good prices. We really can't fault this hotel. Save your money to spend in New York City.

Un peu loin de la ville de New York, mais génial pour le prix et les navettes à l'aéroport au 30 minutes.

空港移動のために寝るだけ宿

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: 空港への無料シャトルバス
Cons: 宿内にカフェではなくコンビニを併設した方が宿泊客には喜ばれると思う
Location: 宿周辺に全く店がないので水や食事に不便を感じた
一番の利点は、無料送迎シャトルバスつきでした。 空港内設置の無料電話でピックアップに来てくれますし、ホテル発の便は30分に1本24時間対応です。 その他には、宿周辺に買い出しのできる店は全くなくスタッフの対応もそれなり。 送迎バスのドライバーも失礼はないものの、こちら側からリクエストしない限り自発的なサービスはありませんが時間厳守でした。 早朝空港移動が楽な宿+コスパの良さが決めてでしたので値段相当と考え不満はありません。

Decent hotel that needs improvement

Posted May 7, 2015
Pros: Located right next to the New Jersey turnpike so traveling was easy.
Cons: The carpet was old and crusty and had a stench that will never be forgotten, better accomadations for infants like cribs.
Location: The truck industry thrives in the area and the best thing to do is bring all of your valuables into your room and keep them with you wherever you go.
Aside from the fantastic view of vehicle transport trucks and the mold on the pillows and in the bathroom....not bad. They supposedly remodeled but I wouldn't call throwing a couple pieces of new furniture and a coat of paint remodeling. There was definitely room for improvement. New countertops don't make a room new. If you like tailgating, every night there were a group of guys drinking and being loud in the main parking lot.

Mediocore

Pillows were not comfortable, mattress was unbalanced, hotel van driver was clearly rude but surely wanted tips. It took a lot not to tell him when you are greeted kindly, you reply accordingly ESPECIALLY when you want a tip...idiot.

Great room but hard to find and high price to park at. Very cheap shot to charge that amount
