"Horrible, NOT AS PICTURED, FILTHY"
This hotel is all worn out, it is not as pictured everything is old, there is also a $15 parking surcharge per night, the carpet smells the wall are stained, couldn't even watch the analog TV is not an LCD as they show, picture was all red, it's very filthy. I do not recommend this place to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Not a good place for sleeping and hidden costs"
We spent nearly two weeks in this hotel near Newark Airport as a least cost option for our stay in the area when taking our daughter to college in NYC. What we did not anticipate was the additional costs of parking and the cost of travel in an out of the city with the tolls. Furthermore, no free breakfast, a horrible restaurant with rude staff, and […] surrounded by freeways meant it was complicated to get meals. Finally, it is really hard to sleep when the curtains won't shut. Even at night it was problematic because the parking lot lights came in the room like it was morning. The rate was great, but I would not recommend it. Pay a bit more and get a good night's sleep and a meal! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to must-see sights"
We stay for the convenience of hotel location to and back from NYGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I didn't like at all. The mattress was really bad and flat. I had a problem in the shower and the bed is to small - looks like a twin size. I just stayed at this hotel because it was close to the places where I was going to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you can deal with airplane noise, then A+"
This was a stop-over on our way to our destination. Ordinarily people would not want to stay in an airport hotel unless using the services of an airport, but if you can deal with sound while you sleep this is really a great deal! My family and I live near a railroad station so we have the ability to "tune out" outside noise. Even though it does have […] planes landing (literally right next to the hotel) I must say the hotel is adequately sound-proofed. The noise when standing in the room, as opposed to in the parking lot, is CONSIDERABLY quieter. Beds were comfier than I expected being a HoJo hotel, and had lots of kids channels on tv. Additionally, if you have yound children they may even enjoy watching the airplanes! Mine did! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very bad experience"
Everything was so bad ,bad location patheric people really bad location and service was TerribleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Closed to park facility .bad location"
Bad customer services very hard to communicated Smells and elevators a disaster !!Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean, spacious, near airport, free shuttles&wifi"
This place is great if you're just looking for a place to crash and rest at the end of the day. The beds were very hard but it was very clean and spacious. You can store your luggage at the front desk but you have to pay $5 per bag which kinda annoyed me since a lot of places will do it for free. There's not much transportation available nearby (or […] restaurants or anything else) but they offer free shuttles to the Newark airport where you can find several different transportation options from there.

"Pay the extra money an stay somewhere else"
Staff were not friendly or helpful, hallways were wet, rooms smelt like mildew an urine. Not worth the money at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
We got there around 11 at night. The room smelled of smoke even though we requested a non-smoking room. It was muggy and dusty smelling. The sheets had stains on them, the floor was not vacuumed, the window in our ground floor room couldn't lock. We called the front desk and they said there was nothing that could be done about the window. Overall not […] worth the money. I'd spend the extra $20 or so for a room in a different hotel ans in the city. NEVER AGAIN!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"You get what you pay for,nothing more,nothing less"
This was a good hotel for the hotels.com price. We were visiting NYC and is was good for the stay. Pros: Affordable, easy check-in and check-out, nice, little work out room, laundry facilities. Cons: additional parking fees...per night, per vehicle. very small parking lot that is open to non-guest parking. Came back late 1 night to 1 parking spot left. […] bathtub did not drain properly, no exhaust fan in bathroom, hotel food was awful, hotel is tucked away on an off-street with inadequate signage. Noise from airplanes and thruway traffic depending on which side of the building you are on. Nothing to do in the surrounding areas. Even the bar staff said "you are in the middle of no where" when asked for suggestions for the family. Surrounding cities offer very little to do in the evenings with children.

"Not what we were expecting."
This hotel just seemed to be much better when we looked at it online. It really just wasn't in a good area and we didn't really feel comfortable in the hotel. As three college students, we weren't really prepared for what we were getting into with this hotel. We generally just didn't feel secure at the hotel and were disappointed with it after seeing […] the hotel online. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would recommend to people flying in or out of EWR"
Hotel very close to airport, room was large and clean. Big TV, work desk, good A/C, bathroom fine, good hot water and water pressure, hotel shuttle guy very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is restaurant was to open at 7AM and I wanted to have breakfast at 7 before I left to the airport, but it didn't open at 7AM. Also, gift shop was to open at […] 7AM, I wanted to purchase some things, but they told me at 7 that it would open at 7:30 or 8AM. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Never again will I stay here. It felt like a very cheap motel. The beds were so uncomfortable, the smell of cigarettes would come through the vents even though we were in the NON SMOKING section, the AC sounded like it was about to break down and couldn't be turned off, the shower curtains needed to be changed and the chair in the room was so filthy […] it was pretty gross.

"Bad bad bad......"
Paid more than compare to good hotel price. Dirty rooms. sticky. looks like a rundown place. if you are planing to stay here think againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We literally only needed the room to recharge our batteries on our phones and ourselves. The room was large but the beds were hard. The room appeared clean except for the bath tub which looked as if it was rusty around the drain and had been painted over several times, The noise from the airport was loud as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price, nearly fragrance free"
Night desk guy could have been nicer, but why pay lots more? It was fine. Airport noise was not a problem at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good inexpensive accomedations"
Excellent price, 15.00 a night for parking not included in room fee. Excellent staff, hotel needs to be rejuvenated. Gym is tiny but equipment is maintained. Every thing is clean and the staff is respectful and helpful in all areas. Hotel is old and that produced a musty feet smell from the carpets in the rooms. This was not due to messiness but rather […] age. i would stay at this location again even if its out of the way. Hotel has a shuttle stop with multiple daily pickups to New York for a competitive price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
you get what you pay for! Don't ask for a cab at the front desk they'll call some sketchy guy in a black navigator who charges you a ridiculous amount of money to go 2 miles down the street to buy groceries.

"Hidden $15 parking fee!!!"
Very surprised and disappointed that the hotel charges a $15 parking fee. They use most of their lot for people who don't want to park at Newark airport. And since we arrived late night we could not find a parking spot. We had to squeeze in a space that said no parking!Genuine Expedia guest review
The attendants were rude. They don't advertise that you have to pay an additional fee for parking. They tell you when you get there, and you have no choice but to pay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed in better places look like a nice run down hotel. And it sucked that I had to pay $15 to park where it looked like parking was not secured if I pay for room I expect free parkingGenuine Expedia guest review

I think paying to park at a hotel is ridiculous the smell was not at all pleasant ...you want sleep forget about it other guest can be heard very easily.....elevators are very slow....but it's better than sleeping in your car in New Jersey ...for a quick trip the price was right.....in the end you get what you pay for....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel needs some updating!"
There was a big sign on the hotel that said "Newly renovated rooms" but I'm pretty sure our room hadn't been renovated in years! It wasn't a very reassuring feeling when we saw a lady walking up and down the hallways spraying Lysol. The rooms smelled terrible. The carpet looked very dirty. The beds were old, the toilet leaked and ran non-stop and the […] shower didn't drain well. The staff seemed pretty indifferent to us. When we checked out they never asked how everything was. I didn't get much more than a grunt when I said good-bye. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good for the price but...."
I stayed there for 4 nights. When we got to the room it had a horrible smoking smell even though I reserved a non-smoking room. Since it was about 2 am and we were so tired we didn't ask for another room. The beds were ok. They don't provide with free breakfast but they have a restaurant there and the service and food are ok. The airport shuttle was […] very convenient. It is a little noisy because the planes pass by very closely. I was supposed to check out at 12 but I needed to stay a little bit more until 4 pm. I asked and they said it would be $40. I paid and when to the room to sleep. At 12 the housekeeping lady kept knocking at the door, she woke me up , I said come back later I paid for late check out and she opened the door. I had the chain so she couldn't enter but that bothered me a lot. At about 2 the same happened. When I checked out I asked for the invoice and the were charging me with the parking fee ($15 p/day) and I told them that I didn't have a car, the guy said when I checked in I was asked if I had one and I told him that I said no I don't have a car, I came in the shuttle. In overall, it was ok for the price but I wouldn't stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A fine place if you need Newark airport stay"
We had a travel delay and needed an airport hotel at Newark. It was one of the least expensive options, and we found it more than adequate. Nothing fancy, but a clean and reputable seeming place for an overnight. They even had an express bus direct into Manhattan, which was a nice feature. One problem: the shuttle to the airport runs every 30 minutes […] (and takes 20 minutes round-trip), but they let someone take it 10 minutes early who was running late for their own flight, so that everyone else became 10 minutes late by the time it returned. Not cool! If you are pressed for time, try taking an earlier shuttle rather than cutting it close. (always good travel advice anyway) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Poorest Service Ever"
First problem had to do with photocopying of my driver's license. Nimesh said he needed it as proof that I was actually there, besides the fact that he had run my credit card, as well as copied it. After settling in my room I came out to look for something to eat, this is when I noticed Nimesh yelling at a lady customer at the front desk. I don't know […] how that story ended but about 30 minutes later I was passing by a room on the 2nd level when the 3 occupants said they were living the hotel because of bad service. The guy who spoke to me said one of the ladies had been bitten by a bug and they had brought it to front desk's attention and Nimesh had scolded them for making up a story. When I reached the elevators, Nimesh was yelling at another man. This time I decided to record it. On top of that he had the audacity of calling police on the traveler. It appears this gentleman wanted a copy of the photocopies Nimesh had taken from him. The other person working alongside Nimesh had given him a copy but Nimesh would not tolerate it. So Nimesh called the cops claiming that the traveler had taken the copy by force. Two police officers arrived and started talking to the gentleman. It was getting too late and I had to live before there was any resolution. What a nightmare this Howard Johnson was. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty and in the Middle of Nowhere"
Not good. They put us in a ground floor room. I like to open the windows so these was not safe - did not want someone climbing in! They gave us another room. The whole place was grimy and dingy. Really not nice. There was no where to get a bite to eat (we arrived around 11pm) There is nowhere around that you can get to on foot. It is completely isolated. […] Regret booking here without reading the other review more carefully. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"OK, but noisy"
We stayed at the hotel due to an early flight in the morning. Thus, our only aim was to get some sleep before the flight. Unfortunately, sleeping turned out to be difficult: there's a lot of noise from the planes and the walls of the hotel don't really block it. In addition, somebody at the room next to us had his tv on all night, which didn't help […] either. The staff at the reception was quite unfriendly. The room was clean, though. The airport shuttle worked well for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
