"Bed bugs"
Found live bed bug crawling across my pillow as I was about to lie down. Picked it up and took to management. They offered another room but there were signs behind headboard in that room too. It was a long night. Pay more and stay in a hotel where they at least are trying their best to fight this epidemic.

You get what you pay you are getting a low rate for the hotel but alsp the quality for the rooms is poor the beds are bit hard but just for sleeping it can go with it. Dislike the point that for the quality of the hotel you still have to pay for parking when it should be free its one of the points that should be change from the hotel. Staff from there are helpful due to provide with good customer service and did help fix problem about payment method. Staff feom the hptel also help on lowering the price for the parking. The process for the checkput was not difficult at all staff provided with very easy way to check out. But the only and main point that was dissapointed was the fact that expected alil bit more quality for the bed from the room due to the beds from the rooms were very hard and old and bit smell from the room. If the equipment from this hotel wpuld to be updated and the rules for the parking change to have a free parking would consider back to stay at the hotel otherwise would rather look for another hotel due to for a couple of dollars more i could find a better quality hotel with free breakfast and free parking lot. Alsp had a misssunderstand that staff charge from acct a different amount that the one showing on my confirmation number was dissapointed for the situation, but the god point was that after calling the hotel staff and clarify i was able to get my refund for some other hotel fees and my parking was charge again eventhough it was already paid for it.

"Where is a Manager when you need one?"
We have been to this hotel before and had a great stay. That's the reason we chose to book again. How much has changed in 2 months. I have yet to speak to the manager. How is there not a manager on duty within 24 hours? The room smelled like mold. Refrigerator did not work. Bathroom was dirty and tub was clogged could not use. Toilet would not flush. Air conditioner was spitting out condensation on the bed. It was a horrible stay.

It was a Birthday/getaway trip for my girlfriend and I. We had a good time. The only complaint is that the Shuttle that drops you off in New York could be bigger to commendate the guest that didn't travel by Car.

"Barely "OK"! Will search for other next time!"
The front desk people were hard to understand. The service into NYC was way too expensive, although cheaper than a taxi or uber, though not by much for 5 people. And explanation of how to get into the city would be much more useful, such as taking the PATH and city parking for the day. The hotel's own daily parking was ok. The restaurant was over priced and not very good quality. The room was clean - but not enough towels and the beds were not very comfortable and the shower did not have good water pressure.

"My Trip to New York"
I stayed in New Jersey because it is considerably less expensive. The hotel provides service with a shuttle that will take you round trip to New York City. Even with the closeness to the airport, the hotel itself is quiet. The experience was very nice.

"Conveniently located right off the highway"
This was the second time staying at this hotel and it was comfortable. The only downfall is that it's right next to the airport and is loud when planes take off and land. They were accommodating with a crib for my 1 year old daughter and she slept comfortably as well even with the noise from the planes. There was a smell to the room which seemed to have been covered up by a spray. We bought candles to mask the smell which did a decent job, but at 2a, the smoke alarm went off scaring us half to death so we had to blow the candles out and funk came back. The smell wasn't unbearable, but definitely noticeable. You get what you pay for, but if you don't plan on staying in the room much, is definitely worth it.

"Decent place good price!"
Hard to find a hotel near NYC that is inexpensive. This was great. I didn't expect a 5-star gleaming hotel, and I only needed it for a night - less than 24 hours - so it for my needs perfectly. I was concerned the planes were going to be too loud and disrupt sleep where the airport is right next door but you honestly can't even hear them from the room. Simple and easy check-in/check-out!

"Booking website"
The booking website did not make it clear what the actual check in/out hours were....so it appeared on the computer as if I had booked for the FOLLOWING day period...i.e. a couple of hours before my connecting flight left. So I spent 2 hours arguing with the night clerk until he changed the booking date on the computer to agree with their parameters.

"Could be a gamble"
Very nice exterior, very nice staff, great shuttle to and from the airport, great place to park the car for two nights ($15 a night). The treadmill was OK, it was loud and needs some TLC but worked. The windows opened in our room to the outside, but i couldn't find a way to lock them. My 2 rating comes from the amount of air fresheners in the hotel and our room. Our room was on the first floor, and it reeked of cleaning chemicals and air freshener that did not go away during our stay. If I would have had my kids with me I would have asked for my money back and left. I would not stay here again however if I had to do it again, I would try out the second floor. Lastly, domino's delivered fast and fresh pizza after midnight on a weeknight.

When requeste support the just came and put towels around the toilet to hold the water and refuse to change my room. If it wasn't becuase I had my senior mom with me I will have left.

"Stingky tub, creepy floor, no Wifi & breakfast"
This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed (stayed on average 10 per year). The bath tub do not drain freely. Worst, when you flash the toilet, water gushed back in the tub, with stinky smell! I checked in late and was too tired to make a complaint or ask for a change of room. The flooring was terrible. You can hear loudly people walking upstair. The free Wifi did not connect in any three of my device. The worst yet: I had a plane to catch in early morning. It was a shock to see no one there to serve breakfast at 6:30am when they state breakfast start from 6:00am. I was the one to turn on the light for the dark breakfast area! I demanded a refund or reduction of charge but was denied. I had to leave in deep disappointment! Hotel.com should take this hotel off the list. I did not have the time to call Hotel.com as I was hurrying to the airport!

"Grossed out"
I flew in late, checked in at 1:30 a.m. Got to my room, unpacked my bags and got ready for bed. When I pulled sheets down on one bed, sheets were dirty and had a hair ball in it. Then went to bathroom to wash my face, long, dark hairs on EVERY towel. To top it all off a maggot crawled out of the overflow hole in the sink, then crawled back in. Wa too exhausted to repack & go down stairs. Slept in other bed. When I checked out I let the front desk know & showed pictures. The lady said I should have gone back down & switched rooms, like it was my fault. I explained to her the time & that I was too exhausted to pack up and comeback down. They gave me a small discount. Will NEVER stay here again. Disgusting!

I can not say anything nice hotel, booked for 5 people and had to pay extra bed. I left forgotten earrings 24 carat white gold with diamonds and tell me they didn't find them. Very dishonest. I've never had such an unpleasant experience like this hotel. They are not recommended and if so, make sure to not forget anything because they stay with it.

I found the bathroom to be too dirty for my taste. I realized it was an old facility but that did not excuse the hair on bathroom floor and walls. The bed was Ok but the dust ruffle was a mass of wrinkles. The TV did not work but I did not call for service. If I am in the area again and have an early flight, will find another hotel near the airport.

"Surprise!"
We stayed at this location 2 different nights, one coming and one going from our destination. 5 of our rooms were on the 1st floor the 1st stay. Cleanliness of room, carpet, etc was not satisfactory. Our other 1 room on the 3rd floor was very neat and clean. Parking was a nightmare for our small bus. Was not told on the front end that there was a charge for parking. $25 was a bit much for each of our 2 different stays! Our second stay one week later was a little better. 5 rooms on the 2nd floor were much better than the 1st floor. The other room on the 3rd floor was much the same as the 1st stay. Overall, not exactly what we were expecting. Probably won't choose this location to stay at again. :(
