Great little hidden gem on a main street. Rooms were nicely updated and comfortable. Very welcoming employees. Newspaper, Wi-Fi, and breakfast were all wonderful. Late check-out was greatly appreciated. Ask for a room that faces the back as the hotel faces a busy street. We were so tired, the traffic didn't disturb us at all. Would stay there again. […] Small indoor pool and whirlpool were a surprise-but had no time to take advantage of it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
THE ROOM MY WIFE AND I HAD IN THIS HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS IN AVENEL, NJ, MUST BE THE ONLY ROOM(213) WITH NO BARRIER BETWEEN THE WALLS. PROBABLY BECAUSE IT HAD ALL THE DRAIN PIPES FOR THE UPPER ROOMS IN THEM! AT AROUND 6 A.M. IT WAS LIKE A WATERFALL IN THE WALLS. AFTER THAT SLOWED DOWN WE WERE NOT SO HAPPILY ENTERTAINED BY OUR 2 LADY NIEGHBORS HAVING A […] GOOD TIME WITH EACH OTHER! YEP, I SAID IT! IT WAS LIKE WE ONLY HAD A CURTAIN BETWEEN US. BUT, AT 2 AM THE NIEGHBORS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF US WERE ARGUING FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS. COMPLAINT TO THE DESK BEFORE CHECKOUT WENT WITHOUT CONCERN NOR APOLOGY. NO SLEEP, NO COMFORT, NO MORE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS IN AVENEL, NJ, EVER! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just what I was looking for!"
My boyfriend and I stayed here on New Year's Eve and attended a party at a local bar. The service at the hotel was excellent. We were quickly checked-in, informed of the hours for the free continental breakfast, and provided a party pack with snacks and water bottles. The front desk was helpful in calling a taxi for us as well. The room was much larger […] than I expected. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would gladly stay here again if the need arises. The only negative is the surrounding area. The hotel is located right on US-1 and not in the most picturesque area, so it is probably best suited for business or visiting people/attractions in the local area.

"Holiday Inn Express Woodbridge - EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!!"
There are not enough stars for this hotel! The staff was courteous, friendly and efficient. The hotel is new and in in excellent condition. I felt like I was in an exclusive "grand" hotel. It is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the "FREE" appetizers and beverages that were available for all guests for dinner. What a special perk. Would recommend this […] hotel to everyone.

"Friendly staff made the difference"
The area this hotel is located in is not very salubrious. It is on a busy main road with used car sales lots and some run down buildings. But this hotel is a little oasis. Plenty of parking and comfy and well kept rooms, with a spacious and comfortable breakfast room. But best of all are the staff. Very helpful and friendly. Must have been a special […] day because they gave me a baggie of goodies when I arrived. That made me smile. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sound hotel, but need to have a car"
Very poor location without a car. A fine hotel, and reasonable breakfast. All day coffee/tea. Pool is ok but hot tub is not very hot and no bubbles.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"

"Ottimo Hotel per andare a NY City"
Ottima posizione e ottimo Hotel ad un prezzo decente per andare a visitare la City. Avevamo ad un paio di miglia il treno che portava direttamente a NY e quindi e' stato semplice e Veloce. il bilgietto di andata e ritorno dalla City era di 10 USD andata e 10 USD ritorno. Hotel in generale molto bello come tutti gli Express della IHG, unico problema […] il condizionatore della camera perdeva acqua quindi avevamo la moquette della camera nelle vicinanze del condizionatore Bagnato. Ma credo sia stato un problema del momento, nulla di ricorrente. Andateci ne vale la pena. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice HOtel in with a good location in Woodbri"
If you wanna stay in Edison than this is a perfect location. Close to TexMex and Woodbridge One negative thing is, that it is located directly at Route 1, which means try to get a room located to the backyard But in total a very nice hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
価格以外は、全て満足です。現地のクーポンブックとの価格とあまりにもかけ離れていて、ショックです。近くの同等のホテルでもここまで高くありません。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Smaller that it seem"
Very clean hotel, looks like it was renovated not long ago. Breakfast was better than the average HIE. Recognition of platinum member by room upgrade to a small suite. Keep in mind that the hotel is on route 1...the traffic noise in the early morning hour may wake you up earlier than you plan. The jacuzzi was out of service and the pool was small, the lobby is very small!
The hotel was in a great location, the hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. I had trouble turning my air conditioning unit on because im an old lady, an a young maintenance man came very fast an assistant me, he was very polite and helpful, he told me if I needed anything or any help with anything else he would come back an assist me with whatever I needed.. I definitely will be coming back..Great service

We booked this hotel about a week in advance of our stay. We came to NJ for a funeral. The staff was extremely nice, check-in was quick and easy and the suite we had was clean and comfortable. The hotel was in a very convenient location for everywhere we needed to be. Only complaint was that at 10:30pm, the housekeepping crew was vacuuming the room next door when I was going to bed.
"Quality over Customer Service"
Our family of 4 was searching for a place to stay close to NYC that would fit our budget. This just happened to be the place. There are a couple of other decent hotels in Avenel near the Rahway station, but this worked out for us because our family isn't little anymore and we needed more room. Accommodations: Double queen room w/ fridge, microwave, and living space area was perfect! Stay on 2nd floor... Stairs lead to breakfast area, computer, and pool. Front Desk staff: (depending I on the day or shift) is mediocre at best with a greeting and / or smile. You'll luck out if Dhara is working. She is not only a hottie, but was nice to talk with and so helpful. Food: Breakfast is included. Was decent. They have a pancake machine! Very cool. Wednesday nights they have dinner. Excellent! Business Center: One computer was alive, one on life support that really needs upgrading and a little cleaning. Couldn't print anything out. Just go to front desk and ask them to print stuff out for you. Overall: A nice stay suited our needs. 2-3 miles from the Metro station so you can get to NYC ($10/adult and $4.50 per child) each way.
"A Great Stay!!"
This hotel had much better than average rooms which were aesthetically pleasing and well-appointed with microwave and fridge. It was in a great location near many restaurants, malls, etc. The staff were friendly,efficient, and helpful. Breakfast was decent and food was always plentiful as it was replenished quickly as needed. Excellent value for the price I paid. Since there was an indoor pool near registration there was a humid, pool-like smell in the lobby, but that is understandable given the circumstances. I will definitely stay there again when I need a place to stay in the area.
"Great little hotel, very friendly staff :0)"

Great location, short walk/drive to lots of restaurants. The rooms were nice, clean and bright. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Holiday Inn Express hotels don't really offer much in the way of extras, its the staff that count and these were a credit to the hotel
"Expected better based on reviews"
11/28/13 NCYankeesFan Raleigh
This was supposed to be a two night stay but we left early. There were some problems in addition to the noise mentioned by other reviewers. First, we had booked a queen suite so we could use the sleep sofa. When my son took the cushions off, he found popcorn, cereal, stains, etc. It was so filthy, he chose to sleep on the floor. The temperature throughout the hotel was unusually warm, and our room was too hot even though it was twenty-six degrees outside and we had the windows open. We even turned on the air conditioning, but our room never got cooler than seventy-eight degrees. The hotel is nonsmoking but that is either new or a lot of guests ignore it. Our room and the common areas, including the stairwells, had an overwhelming smell of smoke that they tried to cover up or clean with chemicals. The front desk staff at check-in was friendly and professional. At check-out they seemed inconvenienced and bored. One staff member was (loudly) on the phone buying tickets to a show. The woman who checked me out didn't ask why we were leaving early or how our stay was. We found a Hilton about 15 minutes away that didn't have any of these issues, was less expensive, and included a free full American breakfast.

One of the 1st things I look for when I enter an hotel room, is the state of the carpet! The hotel, both carpet, bed linen, towels, walls everything is so, so spotless that I am overly impressed! The management and state are so professional and courteous that one has to wonder if one is at home or at an hotel.

"Defies its neighborhood"
09/18/13 JSLinNYC NYC
We just needed a place to stay two nights, do laundry and rest up. This was perfect. Great washer and dryer. The whole place was spotless. Breakfast was up to standards. Had a microwave and fridge in room so we didn't have to venture out (though we did find a great diner nearby!). Best of all was the staff. They could not have been more helpful, polite, gracious. I can't say we'd seek this location out again, but if we needed a stopover we certainly would stay here happily.
