Clean and comfortable though not high-end

Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: Front desk employees were friendly and helpful. Shuttle service is important to have.
Cons: I am sensitive to odors and immediately detected a carpet cleaner scent. Keeping the air on helped.
Location: Location is out of the way and close to what appears as an industrial area. Location is difficult to find when you are unfamiliar with the area.
. Shuttle service to the airport was convenient. I had a reasonable hotel rate, but spent to buy breakfast and to pay to park the rental car. The hotel is a bit off of the airport campus and it was just enough to be a challenging ride back to the hotel each evening. Front desk and restaurant employees were friendly and helpful.

Family environment and Close to airport and NYC

Posted Sep 26, 2016
Pros: Shuttle service to & from Airport / Manhattan. Check in in was a delight. All the staff were a joy to be around. Room and Bed were comfortable and big
Cons: nothing I encountered
Location: not much to do outside the hotel unless you take a cab to mall or bar, or take the shuttle to the airport. The hotel is in an industrial area .
Hotel is an older hotel and has that 1970's feel but an absolute joy to stay at. it brought back memories of my first howard johnsons stay back in 1980 as a 16 year old. Despite its age , all the carpets , curtains and ammenities are clean and modern . Shower is older type but still function great as my 3 year old shower at home. The hotel has a family atmosphere , staff are helpful , always smiling and a joy to interact with. Great café in the lobby for breakfast and lunch. Very accessible to Newark Airport with free shuttle buses on the half hour. Also has a twice daily shuttle to manhattan for $25 return trip. I loved staying here and avoiding the high price NYC hotels. It is in an industrial area but except for planes it is quiet and safe . Look forward to staying here again next time I visit family and friends in New Jersey or Manhattan

Decent hotel near airport, tough to find.

Pros: Clean and close to airport, inexpensive
Cons: Attitude of male desk workers
Cafe staff slow and not very competent. Food okay, server had trouble figuring the bill. Desk staff tended to be gruff, morning woman very helpful.

Cubre las expectativas para 1 o 2 días con auto

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: Dormir
Cons: TODO
Location: No hay nada, no hay espectativas, solo sirve para dormir, está en una zona inaccesible sin auto o con el auto que ellos ofrecen a Manhhatan por $25dls
Cubre espectativas para un día max 2, solo por bajo costo y estar cerca de Manhhatan, si te quieres trasladar a Manhhatan no te ayudan solo quieren que uses lo que ellos proporcionan con alto costo, no hablan español no quieren que te ayuden personal que habla español, cuando reserve puse que se hiciera el cobro en efectivo cuando llegara yo, sin embargo hicieron el cobro antes (no sé si es cosa del Hotel o de Expedia) RESERVE DOS HABITACIONES Y SOLO ME DIERON UNA y ya me habían hecho el cobro por las dos, sin embargo se deslindaron, pedí otra habitación puesto que necesitaba dos habitaciones, por supuesto tuve que pagar. Llegue en auto y me cobraron el estacionamiento, (se que en muchos lados cuesta, pero en un hotel pfff...en General mala experiencia.

Trapped in Jersey

If being in New Jersey isn't bad enough, all of the EWR hotels are little purgatories.
