Staff do there best I guess. but the place is old dirty and smelly the place needs a overhaul. Its only good for a quick pit stop close to airport. I had to stay arrived late and had a 1 year old with me.

The room was not so clean. The sheets were not changed every day. On or second day of stay the cleaning crew took our drinks from the fridge as well as other belongings left in the room

Hotel is convenient and economical.

Don't let the location freak you out. The room was comfortable and clean. I was disappointed that the room attendant staff failed to clean room on my last night. It rained that night and there was a terrible urine smell that permeated the room. Bring food with you.

Quick turn around

Pros: See above
Cons: Review bathroom shower/tub for cleanliness
Location: Close to Airport with shuttle service
The staff at the hotel were very helpful from how to take the air train at the airport, to menus for delivery of various restaurants to the hotel, and to giving me a new room. The first room I was placed in smelled like a smoking room, had VERY u comfortable beds, and a faucet in the bathroom that didn't work (handle fell off right away). This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because my 2nd room was COMPLETELY different! My second room, on the right side off the elevator, didn't have a funky smell, had beds that were very comfortable, and all facilities were in working order. I did find two hairs in the shower before entering it, but other than that the room was clean and perfect for my quick return to the airport 10 hrs later. I ordered a pizza from the restaurant in the hotel. They called my room when it was ready. The pizza was yummmy! :)

Convenient location, but disappointing condition

The shuttle from EWR airport was convenient as well as being able to catch a shuttle for $25 to NYC. However, the condition of the room was disappointing. There was a smell when we unlocked the door that was unpleasant (musty/mold smell). There were stains on the ceiling and the bathroom had no fan and mold spots on the ceiling. The room was damp and stayed humid even with the air conditioner on. For the price of the room I was expecting a cleaner space and no smell. Overall, convenient to the airport, but I will not be staying again.

Close to airport

The best thing about the hotel was the shuttle to New York daily. The room looked nothing like the ones on the website. The bedspread had cigarette burn wholes in it and the room smelled weird. Parking was $15 per night and there was a very large biker group there that partied in the parking lot until really late. There was no continental breakfast. You have to purchase breakfast, which I think is insane. They could have had cereal, toast, doughnuts, coffee or anything. I was not pleased not were the others that stayed in our group. I will not stay there again.

Close to Newark Airport But....

If it comes down to sleeping in the airport and staying at this hotel- stay here. Short of that, I can't recommend it.

decent hotel, great price

Pros: clean. kind & courteous staff.
Cons: beds need to be replaced... seriously felt as if I was just sleeping on the box spring.
shuttle was quick, driver was awesome & timely. Hotel staff was friendly and quick, was dissapointed that I coudln't get anything from the hotel restaurant, but it was after 10pm for my arrival. Got a yogurt from the gift shop, was enough to hold me over. Room was clean, bed was uncomfortably hard. I only stayed because it was easy in/out from airport for next day travel. Will stay there again when flying out of Newark for certain.
