"Driver sleeps beyond pickup time"
Service at front desk was excellent at checkin. But 3 of us waited a half hour beyond scheduled 4 a.m. pickup time for the 24-hour shuttle to arrive. And, only at our request did the desk call the driver. They gave the explanation "he sleeps" When he finally arrived he wouldn't take us to Terminal A although we were the only passengers on the bus. Instead […] he dropped us at the rail link, which was closed, and we had to take an airport bus to the terminal. A very bad way to end an otherwise enjoyable stay. Needless to say, none of us gave him a tip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good hotel for a single travelling female."
Parking is $15.00 per day with no reserved spaces for Hotel guests , which means there may not be any available parking space and you have to wait until someone leaves ! The location of the hotel is difficult to access although it is close to the airport. .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the hotel."
We had planned to visit New York, but hotels there were way too expensive. Howard Johnson at Newark was an economical option. We used the hotel-airport shuttle to reach EWR and then took the air train to Newark train station, which was free. From the Newark train station we took NJ transit to NY Penn station, which cost us $31 for 2 adults and 2 children. […] It was convenient and economical to visit NY while avoiding the costly hotels in NY. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Safe, clean, and secure"
Although the hotel,is old and needs updating, it was super clean...the linens, the bathroom...everything. And the staff was very kind, helpful, and friendly.For a one night stay, it wast just fine. Early morning van was prompt, but pick-up at the airport was a bit delayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I can safely say that I will stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The experience was good the breakfast are expensive but the other are OKGenuine Expedia guest review
"ok room but poor staff customer service"
I wish this hotel would undergo a renovation. New carpet and bedding would do wonders. The only issue I had was with the black woman behind the desk. She was rude and didn't even look at you when you spoke to her and when she spoke to you. Her attitude was awful. She clearly didn't want to be there and was not motivated to work at all! She ticked me […] off! I'm sure they can do better. There are plenty of people out there who want to work and will be motivated to give good customer service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Would stay again. Good shuttle services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for Overnight Stay Before Cruise"
This is definitely a no-frills hotel. I stayed here the night before my cruise. The hotel is situated in an industrial area, no shopping or restaurants nearby. There is a small cafe, bar and gift shop in the hotel. Funny side story...I went to use the complimentary green shower gel while in the shower and when I opened it found that it contained mouthwash...not […] shower gel....whatever.... The room was clean and comfortable. This is perfect for a short overnight before the cruise. Would stay here again before a cruise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok. Big plus free wifi and guest computer available in lobbyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I needed an inexpensive hotel that I could easily get to the airport. The surrounding area is not nice. You cannot walk out, it is surrounded by freeways.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fast response after calling from Newark airport."
I was checked in quickly and efficiently after arriving at 1 am. The room was quiet and clean and very reasonable. I checked out at 7 am so my stay was very brief but perfect for my circumstances.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Run down hotel sitting by itself w/ no amenities"
Stayed at this hotel for one night until we left for our honeymoon the next morning, the price was the only redeeming quality. Staff was rude, unaccommodating and the hotel is not by any restaurants or even shopping of any kind so you are forced to eat/purchase everything there. They tell you the shuttle is 24/7 but is on their time table, we had to […] call when arriving in Newark for it to pick us up at the airport and then when we went to leave had to spend $30 on a cab because the shuttle left a few minutes before 7am when we reached the lobby and the front desk refused to call them back and said we had to wait 30 minutes for the shuttle to return. We could not wait that long and called a cab, who came in 5 minutes and got us to the airport before 7:30am. The staff barely spoke English and could have cared less that we needed to catch a flight. I have never had such a bad experience at a Howard Johnson, but I will NEVER stay at this hotel ever again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was poorly lit at night. I used GPS to find the hotel and I could not see the hotel until the third trial. Parking lot was dark. Room was not clean as expected from HoJo. Very noise even after midnight. Kids were playing and talking outside of thier rooms.In addition, I was forced to pay $15 for parking which was not mentioned when I booked online. […] POOR POOR POOR Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
The hotel had a different smell every ten steps or so. It would smell like air freshener then urine. The hotel staff was really friendly and nice but the hotel was not so much. Pay a little extra and stay in a nicer place!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Free shuttle, strange spot"
The accommodations were adequate. Hotel is located near Newark airport with a free shuttle. When I inquired about a taxi to manhattan, I was told only a limo service would pick up there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The meal I ate at the restaurant was good and the shuttle service was efficient. The fitness room served its purpose too. It worked well for a short, affordable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only kind of good thing was customer service. Front door staff. Kind of. Everything else was gross. Do not come hereGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was the pits"
When we called the hotel for the shuttle, they said we would have to wait even though it was 2:15 am and we told them we had children. They said they sent shuttles every half hour, but one did not come for over an hour. The carpet in the room was filthy. Our wake-up call never came and when we called the front desk, they had no record of the request, […] although we talked with the night clerk about it. The restaurant service was so slow only two of our party of six were able to get food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice hotel with close location to airport . Good for one or two stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Go somewhere else!"
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!Genuine Expedia guest review
My worst stay ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't know about $15 parking fee a night crazyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Need to rethink"
I wasn't happy with the hotel having renovations, it was very tacky and made the stay stressful. The location is questionable because you hear all the noise from the local Newark Airport. Other than that the staff is friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stink rooms, worst place ever, rude attendingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel needs some improvement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but located way outside NYC"
Good but the location is too far from NYC and is almost close to the airport. Also beware if you're trying to arrange taxi through the hotel, they can be horrifyingly expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Worth It"
The hallways smelled like smoke. The bedding sheets had holes and there was hair in the bathroom. The beds were hard and you have to pay for parking. Not worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Dirty smelly rooms. Rude desk staff. $10 parking. All around horribleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Most pathetic hotel I ve ever stayed on.unclean front reception which itself is very non welcoming. Add to that unclean rooms and a rude shuttle driver . I definitely don't recommend this to anyone at all..there are lots of good hotels nearby for maybe ten bucks more..don't go to Howard johnsonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"dont stay here.."
The price was in my budget but i'll slurge next time before I stay there. Cigarette burns everywhere, there was a weird smell in the halls, the gym equipment was below average in rage of what you could do, it was hard to get to after driving all day and the construction was a terrible eye sore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean hotel, big rooms very comfortable, the bad thing is that is nothing to do near on a walking distance or in a car nothing..Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible hotel. I would not recommend staying here, ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Move to other hotel because the hotel envoirment"

"No bad for the price"
We didn't expense much time in the hotel most if the time we were out in the city. The neighborhood doesn't look to pretty. I guess is ok for the nightly rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"unplanned stay near airport"
Would only stay here under total duress. Was one of the only options available as we needed a place to stay (other than the airport) due to cancelled flight. Place needs a complete re-do. Tired, old, dirty and despite the pleasant owner/staff, it's shabby, at best - on the inside and outside. A pervasive smell in the room as well. And for the price […] they charged it would be in the category of highway robbery. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for overnight near with airport shuttle"
Staff and manager very helpful. Construction on exterior of hotel. Shuttle efficient.Genuine Expedia guest review
It is a great hotel, the staff was really helpful, and very nice.other than the price of the shuttle was a little expensive plus parking, Parking should be a part of any hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The worst stay ever"
I will never book again .. Access to the hotel was absolutely horrible. I felt and it looked like I was pulling into a junk yard. The mere fact that they charge you 15.00 to park in THEIR parking lot other wise risk your car being towed was mind blowing!!! I was so disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to airport and Elizabeth."
Guests slams the doors during the night, no ventilation in bathroom, expensive parking. WiFi included, free, but problems to login and very slow. Booked this hotel because the Ramada, close by, was not available for those 8 days of our stay.this hotel will not see me againGenuine Expedia guest review
rooms were small, not comfortable, not really clean. hotel corridor's carpet was wet , and altogether not clean at all. hotel staff were polite, but not very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Room ok but some clients lack......&?%@"
Ok but some noisey people. And why can't the front desk provide quarters for the washer and dryer?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Airport"
After reading some of the reviews, I was reluctant, but I was pleasantly surprised. My room was remodeled and very clean! Staff was nice and helpful. I had an unexpected layover and had to leave at 4:30 am the next morning. The pizza was good at the small cafe. Shuttle on time both ways & very close to airport. Would definitely stay their again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ho-Jo's - Newark Airport"
The parking costs $15 if anyone missed that when looking for a hotel. I missed it somehow. Hotel was clean, staff was adequate. Room was clean, but the bed was like sleeping on a slab of granite! I could hardly walk when I got up the next morning! The internet speed was good and I was able to connect to the home office and stay connected to get some […] work done! Really, other than the bed, it was a perfectly acceptable hotel stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is not clean and shouldn't be used no matter how low the price may be. Hotel was listed for $90 on expedia but there was a sign at the hotel offering $54. Which is not available for expedia customers. But the important point is not to stay here even if you could get the room for $40.Genuine Expedia guest review
