Very close to the bus stop to take you to new york
A failed attempt to make your run of the mill sleazy motel motel into a hotel
Breakfast was never available
quiet,pleasant. I did not find a hair drier,but is okey
The stuff at the reception was friendly and helpfully in every way. The neighborhood is not so bad as some described it. The bed was pretty good. Room could have been cleaner. Little smelly in the Hotel. As already mentioned really thin walls...
I liked that it was not too far from Manhattan with the express bus across the road. They should act more professional. And clean the bathrooms a lot better! That would help a lot.
It was a cheap place to go for a night Was a bit dirty
What i like the most about is that everyone is so friendly and helpful. The staff was even friendly when i call to inquire some information before booking this hotel. I recommended this hotel to several people already. I will be back soon. Love Curacao no
I stayed for a night in Capri Inn.It was very affordable and decent. The room was large and had microwave and refrigerator also. It was worth for the price.
orderly and without hinderance
What I didn't like was the room smelled like smoke and I ask for a non smoking room I had children with me we smelt like smoke leaving
Large bed, cable TV Can't open the window and... the room smells too much chemical spray.
Overall the hotel was beautiful. The room was very spacious and neat. My stay was very pleasant. The jacuzzi was out of order and the pool water appeared to be dirty. I didn't like that you have to pay for parking if you booked a room and that you only have 1 hour of free parking.
There is no noise from outside creeping in or from people in the hallways. The bed is very comfortable. The price is right. Food selection at breakfast is very limited. No other meals are available at the property and it is inconvenient to find a restaurant nearby. Parking fees are high.
1st- Decent breakfast 2nd- Could not hear the airplanes even though we where right next to the airport. 3rd- After having an issue with the first morning having the lobby and breakfast area completely blocked by a school group, they moved them to a conference room are for the next 2 days to resolve it. 4th- Had plenty of power outlets around the desk. 5th- The free wifi internet was not slow, making it unnecessary to purchase the $9.99 a day "upgraded high speed" pass. After reading reviews for all the hotels in the area and seeing mixed reviews for all,I decided to to try each hotel for a few nights to see which was the best. Facing a 2-3 month stay in the area, I was going to be able to try a few. This was my second hotel after Holiday Inn Newark, so here is what I got. 1st- No bottled water in the room, maybe this is just a Northern US thing, because most major hotels in the Southern US and West coast have 1 or 2 free bottled waters in the room. 2nd- Had to pay $15+tax a day for parking even though when reviewing the description of the hotel it said there was a "Surcharge" for extended parking, it did't show the fees for parking until after booking even though it showed it as an amenity. I mean, I didn't have to pay for the pool, business center, gym, or elevator use, and they were all listed as amenities without noting a surcharge. 3rd- There was a smell to the room I couldn't place. It was a light smoke and minor mold smell. I got used to it after being the room for a few hours but every time I left and came back, there it was. 4th- Fridge was the smallest fridge you could possible find, like 1.2 ft2.
The staff , breakfast and pool The location kinda tricky
The room was spacy The front desk put me on hold for 7 minutes, come back and ask to put me on hold again. I hung up. Front desk absent for 5-10 on check out at 450am. Front desk needs to be retrained
clean comfortable and roomy...really nice breakfast
Proximity to airport. Shuttle service to and from airport.
Convenient shuttle to the airport They provided me with take out menus for nearby delivery I ordered delivery from a nearby Italian restaurant and they delivered it right to my hotel room door. Nice indoor pool and jacuzzi There is no bar or restaurant in this hotel you have to walk down a road where there is no sidewalk to get to the Courtyard Marriot which is a short walk but 2 doors down to get to the food and bar. Menu and bar is extremely small.
Upon arrival we found a spacious room which was very clean and updated furniture with comfortable double beds. Microwave and mini fridge were included as well as free parking. The free breakfast was nothing fancy but was adequate and got the job done. I was happy to find my favorite Kashi cereal, but the coffee wasn't to my liking. Overall I would definitely book this room again.
The room was super clean and spacious. I would stay here for leisure or business anytime. We even had a little view of the city and planes coming into Newark Liberty. My wife and I drove here from Ohio and this was the perfect balance of what we needed. Cost effective + parking + NYC access A little far from the city and public transit but with a little creativity you can get there in no time for only a few dollars.
Everything, microwave and fridge were available without extra charge, relaxing atmosphere and i felt safe in the environment. No dislikes here.
Great bed, nice room layout, very quiet and dark which was nice for sleeping. If you close the curtains you will not be able to tell you are essentially in an airport. Restaurant was okay -- not bad, not great. A bit expensive for the quality.
The rooms and staff were nice The shuttle service was very poor. Understaffed shuttle service for people trying to make flights. If you are going to use mini-vans, you need to have more of them, or have bigger shuttles on stand-by.
Got in at midnight and still able to grab a quick bit in the restaurant/lounge! Staff was great and never made us feel rushed.
Had to pay for computer access in business suite, no free TV channels…..everything was promotional.
The bed was comfy and divine! Check out time was noon. Service fell short. Shuttle took 40 minutes to arrive; I had to call twice. Massive plane delays brought me in at 3 a.m. and it was not fun waiting yet again. First room shown smelled to me of smoke; no problem about changing rooms. However, she said she would slip a new room key under the door while i could sleep (almost 4 a.m. by now) and she did not. It was easier to not leave the room when I woke (bc very tired) then to deal with trying to get a new key to my room when I would be checking out soon. I left hotel at 11:30ish a.m. without coffee but showered.
Amazing location adjacent to terminals Prices are similar to Midtown Manhattan
They set up a pack and play and refrigerator. Huge win! No bellman to bring our bags up. We had to push the luggage cart ourselves. The restaurant was initially rude when I asked to take food upstairs (to my husband and sleeping daughter). I was surprised that this was supposed to be "in" the airport but it still required a van to access. They will not direct you to a walking path. The van was included (nice) but the driver refused to go to the premier counter, leaving us to lugg baby and bags up multiple flights. Not as easy as for a solo business traveller
Hotel staff was nice, room was clean and not noisy. Restaurant staff were terrible. Can't be described as nice which is in sharp contrast to the hotel staff
Lobby and restaurants remodeled. You can walk to terminals but a shuttle is provided. Best place you can stay when departing from EWR.
The place was very clean and nice, and very professional looking. If you're not a posh business person, it isn't the best. We made the mistake of ordering Dominos to the room, and the hotel was obviously not very happy about "fast food" coming. First of all, they gave the delivery person a hard time and accused her of not really having customers here and being shady, before they finally called my room. Once I confirmed we had indeed ordered pizza, they wouldn't even let the delivery person come into the hotel, and I had to go outside to meet them.
A shout-out to the Newark Airport Marriott for their excellent customer service. Having taken a red-eye and landing in Newark at 5:55 yesterday morning, we went straight to the Marriott, not necessarily to check in, but to have them be aware that we were there, because we knew we wouldn't be back to use it until around midnight. The night clerk decided just to check us in early, at 6:30 a.m. We never went to the room, but left for our day in NJ and NY (and Neal Gottlieb 's Survivor viewing party, which was attended by so many relatives and friends). When we returned to the Marriott just past midnight, we attempted to print our board passes for this morning. When that didn't work, the same night clerk offered to try during the night and have them for us in the morning. Great. We went to our assigned room, and when we opened the door, we saw it was a wreck. It had not been cleaned at all. So it was a trip back to our now favorite night clerk. After explaining the situation, a supervisor got involved. We received an apology, and an upgrade to an executive suite which included a full breakfast. Thank you, Marriott!
Everyrhubg was great above average on all things.. Great service and room service food was beyond great.. One very rude women that was a clerk at the front desk about 3am in the morning needs to be fired. I don't want to give the hotel a bad review because of her. I asked about the shuttle and all were more than happy to call the bus driver. They said tell us when you are ready.. I walked outside and came back in and there was another clerk there. I said you can call the shuttle driver now please, I'm ready. She answered very ugly and rude sharp '' when I have time I will'' there were no customers at the desk. No reason that I should have been treated like that. I just thought to myself welcome to new jersey where all the rude selfish people in the world live and blew it off. But what needs to be realized is that people like this on staff there will cause this great hotel to lose customers.
A place to sleep Bathroom not very clean
Location Housekeeping waking you up early by knocking once and opening the door on you, even if the lock is on. It's annoying!!! Check out @ 11am they'll be attempting to open the door on you around 9am.
What I really liked about this hotel is that all the staff is very nice. All the staff would say hello if they walked past you and were very helpful. I also liked that the bar and convenience store were open later than the other hotels in the area. My sister and I wouldn't get back to the hotel until 10:00pm to 12:00am and we were able to get a bite to eat and have a drink before going to bed. You can tell this is an older hotel so there is little things that could have been better but for the most part you could tell the management was really trying to get the hotel fixed up so the little things didn't really bother me like they would some people. When my sister and I first sat on the bed it seemed really hard and uncomfortable but it didn't turn out to be an uncomfortable sleeping experience. It was actually quite comfortable for my sister and I. If you are someone that needs a softer bed I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The location of the hotel was a bit confusing because the hotel is right off the highway so if you are going too fast you will most likely miss it and have to go all the way around again. So if you are someone taking uber and lyft just make sure your driver knows about when to turn into the hotel so you don't have to pay extra. Even though I smoke cigarettes I didn't like that the ash tray was right next to the restaurants door. It just seemed really weird to me to have it right there when people have to walk out that door. Also even though they have an ashtray right there people had been throwing their buds on the floor and staff was walking around collecting big trash but didn't stop and pick up the cigarette buds.
No hot water. Reported this to staff. No results, one week apart. Seems like they could care less
The price for the weekend was great but on Monday it double Not the best at all!!!
Location next to Newark Airport with free shuttle. Good value. Hotel is shabby, carpet fraying, lots of dings and marks on the walls in hallways (though room itself was in better shape). Housekeeping must've been rushed, because underwear left by a previous guest was on the floor of our bathroom. Yuck.
Hotel common areas are dirty and smelly. Staff is surly and apathetic.
Okay for the money Bar/restaurant was over priced and the WiFi was down. The doors do not close very well...
The staff was helpful for the most part. The room, the facility in general, was poorly maintained and run down. It felt like a dirty cheap motel. I asked the housekeeper to clean my room when I went to breakfast, nothing was done. I asked again at dinner and I came back to a pile of towels thrown on my suitcase, and the bed sheet just thrown on the bed. I called housekeeping who tried to explain that only the supervisor was on duty and that the do not disturb sign was on. This was not the case when I twice asked housekeeping to clean the room.
Nothing The hotel is nothing like the picture, it was very dirty and old. This is the worst experience I ever had. DONT BOOK THIS HOTEL, its full of roaches !!
We liked that it was so close to the Newark airport & the free shuttle ran every 30 minutes to/from the airport. The staff members weren't rude, but not really friendly either. The room was very small - it barely fit the 2 double beds in it.
For $79 plus tax on a weekend night through kayak, it was great. There were only two things: 1) The room could use a mini-fridge. 2) Saturday morning, around 8:30 am, there was house music blasting from the first floor that you could easily hear on the second floor. I realize this was from a group holding a gathering there on Saturday morning, and would be hell on anyone who checked in late, but I couldn't blame the hotel.
Rooms updated but small, adequate for my business needs. Onsite restaurant, excellent food and service but is pricey. Parking is free, good news, finding a parking spot can be difficult but attendant is helpful, may have to park 1/2 block away.
I had low expectations based on reviews, but rooms were clean and spacious and recently renovated. Wifi worked fine for me. Staff were friendly and attentive. Good value for the money. Maybe I just got lucky this time, but nonetheless I'd stay again. Fine for a night. The area is a bit dicey, but not so much so that it should prevent you from walking to the train station, etc.
Location & Price are great! Good breakfast included with hotel stay. Had to switch rooms b/c of a grainy picture in tv and shower stopping up. Also, b/c of warmer temperatures during this winter season the hotel decids no to offer heat in the rooms...WTF? IT STILL WAS COLD AT NIGHT!
Stayed for 4 nights for the 2016 Star Trek convention in NYC. No regrets. Staff was friendly and helpful. Convenient, free parking. Clean, comfortable room. Good breakfast. Walking distance to Newark Penn Station. Reasonably safe urban neighborhood. Easy access to NYC via PATH or NJ Transit. Price compared to NYC hotels. My room had a nice view. Was able to park the full day after I checked out. Elevators malfunctioned one morning (this was a huge annoyance). Area around hotel closes very early (no good restaurants, convenience stores, etc).
- Good complimentary breakfast - Decent gym facilities - Convenient free shuttle to the train station and airport - WiFi fairly fast and reliable I was put on a floor that was renovating (maybe all floors were renovating). As a result, the entire floor looked really run down, it smelled like paint, and it was loud.
The food and the shuttle service as well The first room smelled like cigarettes and was tiny. But the second was nice
We were very well , near restaurants, quiet place, very good breakfast and free parking........................................
I asked for a "quiet" room and ended up next door to a group of women who were clapping, cheering, and in general having a good time. I don't mind people having fun but at 1:00 in the morning I really wanted to get some sleep.
The location is very close to train stations and the free parking is a very nice perk. If they run out of parking they will park it for you. The elevator is simply amazing. It sounds like such a little thing but it is really fast and they don't shut them down on off hours so you're never waiting for one. As other guests mentioned the A/C doesn't work very well. If you turn it all the way to cold (past the temp settings) it will get comfortable after about 30 minutes. The bed is very lumpy and extremely uncomfortable.
Every thing Parking
Downtown location, close to restaurants and activities. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff
Good location for getting into NYC. The breakfast was pretty good. Employees were very friendly. Room was clean. Bathroom door did not close and some of the walls had paint/wallpaper peeling off. Vending machines were all either non-functioning, didn't take bills, or were not well-stocked. We ordered a cheese pizza when we got in for a quick bite to eat and it was possibly the worst pizza I've ever had, especially from a restaurant. A frozen pizza would have been better. Our neighbors rolled in around 2 AM and were loud and woke us and kept us up until about 5:30 - 6AM when we finally had to call the front desk to ask them to do something about it and even then it still took a while for them to quiet down.
The hotel was very close to nyc and they had great accommodation for transport. It was only 12$ round to the city. Our door to the room would not shut quietly it slammed behind you very hard and loud. I thought that was a big safety hazard.
Location close to nyc No gym parking lot out of maintenance
The staff was friendly, the location is nice. The rooms were horrible, the locks in the restroom does not work, the windows don't open the are missing the locks. The room smelled very bad like ciggrate smoke, my mom has Astama so this was not a good experience l.
Once you get inside, the hotel is nice looking. They have a shuttle to take you to the city for a small fee which was nice and convenient. The shower leaked and there was no one at the front desk when we arrived.
The beds were a little too firm, like the mattress needed to be changed.
Michelle was very helpful by giving us lots of information about NYC, while she was checking us in. She even made us a reservation for a taxi for the next morning. The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable and we loved the deep bath tub. Also, we ate dinner in the 12th floor restaurant. The food was amazing and our waitress was very nice. Definitely would stay there again.
its confusion to categorise the hotel as being in New york city. its situated outside new york staff werent too helpful
It's just outside the Lincoln Tunnel. It's clean, and the breakfast cafe was actually great. It's an older hotel. I suspect it was grand, actually, in the 60's. It's clean and no frills. I was pleasantly surprised by the value. The parking lot felt sketchy, but mostly because there weren't many other cars.
Location, options in the breakfast, shuttle service to nyc, in room facilities One of the staff member was not professional at all on reception. Others were very gud
it was very quit and not far from nyc
The customer service No complaints
service for New York tour no breakfast,the pressure of toilet flush not good, far from bus station and takes 40 minutes walk to train station
nothing difficulty getting to it. Staff not really friendly. Too dark
Free shuttle service between EWR and hotel, both ways. Staff was friendly and helpful. I had a room on the 6th floor, it had a vaulted ceiling which was lovely. Clean luxurious sheets, beds were comfortable with pillow options. Plenty of space. Large mini fridge in the room. Convenient, Way better than sleeping on the floor of EWR. Wifi did not work. Elevator incredibly slow. Air quality in my room was not great, was pretty stale and overpowered by air freshener. The windows were not openable to add fresh air. Food in the restaurant is subpar, with virtually no clean eating options. There are no other food options in the area, as the hotel is located amidst train tracks, gates, car parks and rental lots that seem to stretch to forever. $2 for a small bottle of Poland Springs bottled water in the vending machine.
Clean, comfortable rooms, decent food and drinks, timely shuttle to the airport, great price. Better than a park and fly hands down! What more could you ask for!
Very nice room and very friendly staff. Free shuttle to and from airport. Nice rate. Coffee and muffins were available at 4:30 am. Other guests were extremely loud- banging doors and yelling in the hall the entire night. It kept waking us up. Our wake up call rang at 3:40 instead of 4:40. We reserved a shuttle and one of the drivers never showed for work; so at 4:50 on the morning there were four families trying to get to the airport for our flights. The driver was very, very nice but one family was forced to stay behind.
The room was very large and quite attractive. The bedding was excellent and we had a great rest before and after our travel overseas. Nothing at all!
Our room was very nice and the bed and bedding was very comfortable. It was a very quiet stay.
Clean, fast shuttle, good breakfast.
Convenience I reserved king but I got two twin/double, I did not bother to change when I realized in my room
The bed!! So comfortable. Also I left my luggage on the shuttle, and they were very helpful in facilitating my getting it back. The plane was late, and the shuttle took much too long to pick up.
I liked the customer service! Carlos was our waiter one evening and he was so sweet and friendly. The shuttle drivers were also wonderful. Friendly, professional and very nice!! The breakfast was very good also. The only thing I didn't like was that my bed was not made one day by housekeeping and the did not replenish the coffee nor did they remove the melted ice from the ice bucket. I was very disappointed in that part of the service since, as a mom, I do look forward to going to a hotel to be a little spoiled. I didn't complain to the front desk since the rest of the hotel experience was wonderful!!! All in all I would go there again.
I stayed in this hotel twice during January 2017. The hotel has a good location, it is close to the airport, the neighborhood seems safe, and the shopping area is not too far. It has an acceptable shuttle service to the airport. The rooms are spacious and their beds are comfortable. During my first stay of three days, the room was cleaned just once. When I inquired the reason, a woman receptionist explained that when you stay there for a few days the housekeeping personnel “sometimes” skip a day of cleaning. She said that she was alone, that all housekeeping personnel was gone for the day and the manager was out as well. She offered no other explanation and her attitude was of an upset person. As if I was annoying her with my problem. When I returned the second time, I complained to a supervisor, he apologized and said that the mentioned receptionist was wrong, adding that unless I had a “do not disturb” sign on the room door, there was no reason to not have skipped its cleaning. He also gave me a couple of vouchers to compensate for my aggravation. I suggest to closely supervise and train that receptionist to make her understand that clients are needed to pay her salary and they deserve to be treated with respect.
Nice rooms and great location for bus into city No coffee in lobby after 9 am , breakfast buffet seemed hurried and not enough to feed guests
Plenty of parking, clean room
Clean, roomy, acomodating and helpful staff hideaway bed was unuseable due to hard ridges and bumps as well as troughs, had to share king with two daughters like sardines in a can. Air conditioning complicated and hard to use. Slow internet, plus it timed out after 24 hours (despite our having a 2 day stay).
Friendly teen trying to do the best to satisfying us. Clean and excellent Non
For the amount of money to say here you'd think the tv would have worked. We chose this hotel because we wanted a luxurious stay in a plush setting. It wasn't any better than a Best Western. Breakfast was served till 10 am but we had to wait in line for 47 minutes to eat. No bagels or bread left when we finally got our eggs because it was almost 10:30! Really disappointed and wish we had looked for a Best Western.
Excellent Service with professional staff
Great staff Great Clean 24/7 galley Easy TV hook up Consider we only stayed in the cheaper room it felt very luxurious. Would definitely use this chain again and reccomend. Breakfast was disappointed (not the cooks) the quality of the hot food was airline coach. Only compliant.
Nothing No water in pool Gym terrible Had no room key for us upon arrival and for a few hours until my buddy got loud with someone about it and that majestically we got a card Rooms were dirty Desk chair was all messed up They provided corona with no limes put in a ice bucket upside down not even with the body submerged in ice Straight up terrible
ITs proximity to the Meadowlands - liked how they embraced the Springsteen show, and pumped his music through the lobby and outdoors while we were all arriving. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Check in was quite long because of the sheer number of people arriving at the same time, but they made it fun with the music and an "impromptu" pre-show party in the lobby.
We stayed here for our first NFL game, giants vs Jaguars. There was a shuttle to the game that was significantly cheaper than paying for parking and we didn't have to deal with the traffic. To our surprise, many of the giants were staying in the hotel as well. We meet quite a few of the team and even shared an elevator with one of them. We upgraded to the city view for $10 and it was well worth it. We will definitely be back. While the room was gorgeous and comfortable, it was odd there was no mini fridge, and no where to get drinks. The gift shop was closed when we got back from the game and the vending machines didn't work. We were so thirsty!
We booked one "king standard room" and we received a double instead, the room was cold and humid and not too clean.
Staff No water pressure. Toilets questionable. Shower weak. Needs some engineering. Do a little food on Bruce Springsteen nite. The shows always last late. Great staff
The hotel staff had difficulities to confirm my reservation due to last minutes booking. However the Director of Guest Relaltion very helpfull and support during my stay
I made one phone call and u charge me $33.00 for one & $7 for the next one.
Staff in general very nice! Attitude with the guest attendant at the Restaurant, Rooms are not clean enough to be a Marriott, disappointed!!
I booked a room with two beds, and got a room with one! Manager told me she would drastically reduce my room rate for the inconvenience, was busy at the moment and promised to contact me by cell phone as soon as she could that evening. Manager never called, and never answered multiple voice mails I left her. poor customer service!!!! As if the above was not bad enough, our room was directly behind the elevators on the 14th floor, and the loud, constant, noise made it impossible to sleep. Asked for any other room, and was told they were sold out. The hotel should never book room 1411, the noise from the elevators is unacceptable.
The shuttle was very good. The rooms also. I didn't liked the restaurant in the main entrance. It is not good to put it there. The design of the restaurant i also didnt liked. The lady she was the chief of the restaurant was not very kindly.
Staff was friendly Nothing.
The room was clean. It appears to have been upgraded and the AC was good. If you are there to work, it's quiet and a good place to stay as long as you are willing to put up with the staff's poor attitude. The staff was extremely rude. The fridge did not work and when I reported it to the desk clerk she asked "So... do you want me to send someone to fix it?" Really?! I wonder what she thought was the reason I told them it wasn't working and my drinks were warm. After reporting it three times I finally got maintenance in the room at 9:30 PM, the guy said he'd be back in 10 minutes and never came back. The next day I saw someone in the hallway and told him, he came over and brought a new fridge. More than 24 hours after I first asked for it to be fixed or replaced. I found all the staff to be rude and unwilling to help with the most simple request. There are no restaurants around so you are stuck paying an insulting high price for everything you eat or drink. The breakfast buffet is 14.95 plus tax and you have eggs, sausage and potatoes as "hot" food; fruit and french toast and muffins. Don't expect more.
Helpful staff. Great food at Teds! The shabby leather chairs in reception don't reflect the overall quality of the hotel.
Staff was super rude. Room was dirty. Absolutely disgusting
Apathetic, robotic staff that did nothing to accommodate traveler that encountered a major issue
Close to Airport , Friendly staff, Good restaurant WIFI was poor on 8th floor . Could not surf internet properly.
nice updated room. blankets were like brillo
I liked that it had shuttle No pool or jacuzzi for the prize
Parking was not included
The location to the airport is good. The rooms were just okay. The parking was ridiculous. They did not have enough spots for how many people were there. I can't believe you have to pay for parking when there was not even enough parking to park there. Spent a lot of time driving around the parking lot and parking just where our vehicle would fit....usually no actual parking spots but rather parked on grass or in non parking area and left vehicle there. We asked for towels one night and never got them. The walls are very thin and we could here everything going on in the rooms and hallway. The rooms were not all that clean and the pillows were terrible. I would not stay here again.
Nothing - rooms were dirty - bad room odour -
We arrived much later than expected at Newark Airport. Fortunately for us, their airport transportation runs 24 hours. Called the front desk a couple of times about the transportation and they were always nice. It was also good to see a 24 hour pantry stocked with some pretty decent quality foods and baked goods, as all the airport concessions had closed with our late arrival. Our room was clean, modern, and nicely appointed. Overall, would highly recommend this hotel. Food in aforementioned pantry was a bit pricey. Bathroom fixtures needed some repair, but admittedly I forgot to tell them when I checked out. Location of the hotel not the greatest if you want to walk out of hotel grounds.
Absolutely nothing! We were the last guests to check in for the evening. They gave us room 207 and it was filthy. There were huge sticky stains on the carpet and on the furniture. There were chunks of things stuck on the carpet. And the air was stunk of stale smoke. I asked for a different room but they were full. We left and went to a residence inn. I had purchased through Kayak/Priceline and priceline refunded my money. It was the nastiest room I have ever seen. Our friends were also I the hotel in the 9th floor and they said their room was fine. The hotel staff didn't seem to care one bit about the state of room 207. The only thing they offered was to have housekeeping come and spray something so it smelled better.
I stayed with a girlfriend for her 40th and the staff were very hospitable, going over and beyond what what necessary to help us enjoy our stay. They gave us great help with knowing where to go and find things and even stayed after their shift to make sure we were ok! The French Toast for breakfast one day tasted like cardboard! Breakfast did leave a lot to be desired with the "hot" options maybe luke warm and a slim selection of breads etc.
Location - so easy and fast to get to Manhattan. Better than staying in NYC. Staff very helpful. Free shuttle to local outlets/shops. Tax free shopping on clothes in NJ. Shower drain didn't work, breakfast was awful, hotel quite worn and shabby. WIFI did not work at all.
Transport from Air port, if possible
Very easy to go to nyc, only 20-30 min by bus! Close to shopping malls Room cleanliness was not the best I've seen...
Good location for city trip, just 20-25 min by bus. Very comfortable beds. Too slow staff, too small room for breakfast.
ease of traveling to the city no blankets for pull-out couch even though requested (not sheets)
This is the first La Quinta that had HOT food for breakfast and it was welcome since they were NOT anywhere near a location to eat away from the venue - the food was well prepared and the staff was very friendly and cordial THis venue does not have any places within a close walking distance where guests can get breakfast or snacks or even a fast food something. I highly recommend that somewhere on the hotel info on your site that the 2 places that ARE near are listed and that it be recommened that they get a rental car.
Price, accommodation and general comfort were above expectations. Bus connection to central Manhattan was good. Continental breakfast was crowded on weekends and generally poor quality.
Clean hotel. Wonderful view of Manhattan. Excellent bus service to NY across the road.
Nothing was done when I complained about smell of marijuana. No respect for a family environment. Least I expected was a comp for horrible experience, but nothing was said besides I will look into it by the manager. Shuttle service to MetLife stadium is one way no pickup after 5 pm. If your looking for a place to do drugs this is the place to go!!
It was very well located and safe. The staff made mistakes and the house cleaning forgot to clean our room one day.
Transportation No consideration for guests
its just fine.the staff is not very helpful. the room is old and not very clean.But its fine for that price.
location and the fact it had onsite Restaurant
We really liked how close the hotel was to the airport. The shuttle between the airport and the hotel was about 5 minutes. If you're not used to road noise you may have difficulty sleeping
Airport shuttle came late and the staff refused to help us with the timing of the shuttle.
Basic accommodation for the budget traveler. Stay only if you missed your flight out of Newark or have a connection. Had specifically requested a non-smoking room. They had only smoking rooms available. The smell was so bad that my wife and I had to keep the windows open (in December !) to breathe some fresh air. As a small mercy the housekeeping gave us some room freshener to spray. The on-site restaurant is too pricey. The breakfast at the restaurant ($11) was not at all good. The front-desk did not mention that the restaurant would be closing early. When we reached the front desk, they just gave us a Chinese take-out menu. This worked out better because the Chinese food was much cheaper and tastier (I'd recommend that). The good part is that the hotel had an airport shuttle. If you don't have a car, that's a cheap way to get to the city and other places.
I thought the location was excellent. I really appreciated the free shuttle from the airport. The room was just fine and we ordered pizza. It tasted great. It was as good a rest as a person could have on a layover.
The very unhelpful staff. Expensive prices at the restaurant and the parking.
The hotel is close to the airport with a frequent shuttle service between the hotel and the airport. It is basic and not the most luxurious or fancy hotel, but we didn't want to pay the price for that kind of hotel. This one was clean, the rates were reasonable and it is far enough away from the runway that it wasn't noise but close enough to make it a short transfer. It may not be where I would choose to stay for a holiday but if I wanted somewhere convenient to stay before or after a flight, then I would definitely use it again.
I liked being picked up from airport by courtesy car. I liked the selection of movies. I thought the hotel was very good value for money. The front of house receptionist stayed on a personal call all the time she was checking me making it hard to ask her questions and i found it a bit unprofessional. She was very helpful however later when my remote control did not work she got me a new one and was able to answer all my queries well.
Love how close to New York and how easy was to get on and off the highway. The water pressure was low.
Front desk staff and hotel shuttle driver were fantastic. Room service was prompt and thorough.
right across the street to newark pennstation(trainstation)20 min from NYC penn station,very helpful and nice employees,free access to business center with free & fast internet,small but nice fitness room, very noisy, expensive inhouse restaurant,not much facilities around and newark is definately not a beautiful city,starbucks is closed on weekends,rooms not cleaned at 100%
It has a very convenient location near the train station that made our trip in and out of New York easy. There was some difficulty in confirming a taxi booking to go to an event.
The staff were very helpful, they were particularly friendly in the Market Grill where we had breakfast on 2 mornings. Beautiful room, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Usually we stay in Manhattan when we visit New York but this hotel offered a great alternative.It was very cost effective as it was $10 return from the station to Penn Station New York [34th Street near Macys] Our room was not ready when we arrived and even when we came back at 11pm, we then had to wait on the bell hop to bring it up. Think this should have been done.The Starbucks attached to the Lobby only opened Monday to Friday and even then closed at 7 pm. The walkway from the train station to the hotel was closed each evening when we returned from the city meaning that we had to go outside of the station and cross the road to access the hotel lobby. During this we were stopped several times by people asking for money.
The location is the greatest thing about it, as it is next door to the PATH train that takes one to Manhattan in 30 minutes.n I really can't think of anything I did not like.
The location was fantastic for us. The evenning of our stay we had arrived at Newark rail station off the train from Baltimore. We left our luggage at the hotel and after freshening up caught a quick train to Manhatten for ann evenning out. The following morning we used the hotel's airport shuttle service to fly out of Newark Airport. There was slight confusion about the airport shuttle service. The evenning receptionist told us we needed to confirm our intended use half an hour beforehand. When I duly attempted this the next morning I was told this was unecessary
Arrived late and called the hotel about the shuttle from Newark airport, was told it was on its way. 1 hour later was told it was stuck in traffic, so caught a cab and was there in 10 minutes, didn't see much traffic anywhere.
Location inside pen station. Room with good view over penn station and beyond to the airport Good let luggage I had to wait one and a half hours for the shuttle despite ringing three times. When I told te reception staff they showed little interest and didn't apologise although they did offer a free breakfast. Generally the staff were uninterested and I didn't feel valued as a customer Internet expensive
15mn away from New York Penn station. Hotel staff very friendly. Free shuttle to Newark airport. Not the nicest suburb, but seams to be safe.
Concierge Service on the 9th floor was super! Expensive restaurant in hotel with very poor service.
The staff we met while checking in were exceptionally friendly and included concierge service which included evening hors d'oeuvres plus continental breakfast. When we asked details about train times to NY city etc they could not have been more helpful.
convenience to both airport and new york shuttle bus only running hourly to airport - surprised as budget hotels we have used run half hourly shuttles
Staff were very helpfull and professinals. couldnt get a room with view.
Clean, great location, close proximity to the restaraunts and a boardwalk. Very comfortable stay.
The staff was very pleasant and the rooms are nice and new and clean The fact that you need to pay for parking for your car.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and informed.
It's location and price were what sold us on the hotel; it was convenient to New York City. The staff was pleasant, helpful. The red color of the room.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean and cosy, nothing really to complain about. Location was on the New Jersey side and sometimes we had to wait for a bus, but the connections were pretty good.
Nice view of the Hudson/Manhattan
Staff was excellent and very helpful. Pool great. Would have like to watch tv from bedroom but tv was only visible from sitting room. Very clean accommodations. Comfortable bedding overall stay was outstanding. As stated previously would like to see tv from sleeping area but you could only see tv in sitting area. Also a small refrigerator in the room would be nice.
I love the service and location. We have stayed there many times and consistently they have never disappointed us.
Location Paying for parking
It is conveniently located, the rooms were clean, the staff helpful, it is a 10 minute ferry ride to NYC, the view is spectacular, an awesome running path through Weehawken and Hoboken. I really enjoyed my stay and will consider staying here again when visiting "The City". I have no complaints.
Location. Staff.room. Everything good. But breakfast is no free..well last week hotel book time my pakage is have a breakfast but staff say . Pay breakfast..
Some hotels have gorgeous communal areas, such as the lobby, and the lounge, but a different standard for their rooms. Renaissance Newark Airport had beautiful areas that were communal, and their rooms were of the same high standard. Bed was comfortable, and warm. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Shuttle to and from the airport is a plus. Many airline staff stay at the hotel, so the morning shuttle filled up fast, but another shuttle was dispatched right away, to pick up the overflow of passengers. I would stay here each time I'm in the area. Not just a good value, but a great place to stay, meet, eat, hold a conference, etc.
I am very picky, about clean, germs when it comes to hotels. the staff was friendly, from the valet to restaurant staff. the room was clean. i would go back and stay there again.
If you have a choice I wouldnt stay here. The surrounding area is horrible. Also, very very hard to find and easy to get lost in an area I dont feel safe in. The hotel is just average, the staff is just ok. Absolutely no restaurants in the vicinity so you are forced to eat at the hotel for mediocre food. Meeting rooms had leaking ceiling, where water came through like rain! Parking for hotel guests is expensive! Unfortunately I had to stay here for a meeting, if I had a choice I would not stay here!
First of all, I am a veteran traveler. I used to travel for a living, spending more than 200 nights a year in hotels. What upsets me about any poor service experience is that it is relatively easy to avoid with good training and good management.\n\nI checked into the Doubletree Newark Airport after 11pm on the 13th of December. If I didn't already know they had a shuttle from the airport, there would have been no way to know they had one running. In the terminal and also at the P4 shuttle pick-up area, the hotel is not displayed on the courtesy phone area. I ended up having to call the hotel to see if indeed there was a shuttle bus available. \n\nWhen I arrived at the property, there were 4 people behind the front desk but no one at the front door or any bell service available. I had numerous bags as I was returning from an overseas trip and had to secure the bell cart myself. I passed several staff members with this cart and no one offered to assist me. \n\nThe guestroom was fine, alt...
Clean and affordable. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel in general which would include the room, lobby area, and the indoor pool. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and very accomodating when it came asking for directions, coordinating adjoining rooms, and providing additional services such as a roll away bed and blankets. Each time we came back to the hotel from our day or evening trips the front desk manager or clerks would ask how our day went. We enjoyed the flat screen, LCD T.V. and the variety of channels available for free viewing. The only downside to the hotel is that it's located right off the highway across from the airport which meant we were pretty much land locked which limited our dining choices without having to drive. The Perkins shuttle never showed so we ended up eating lunch the first day in the hotel restaurant. Being right off the highway also made it very challanging and confusing to get into the frontage road area where th ehotel is locat...
This hotel has been recently been renovated. The public areas on the first floor are very nice, and the quest rooms are very nice as well. My only negative comment (and it's very minor) is that the hallways in the guest room areas still need to be redone. The front desk and restaurant staff's are very friendly and accommodating.
We needed a hotel not far from the airport as we had a 6:30 am flight the day after our stay. The staff at the Renaissance were incredibly helpful with any and all questions we had re: transportation, food, etc. Although we had a short night's sleep due to our obligations, it was completely restful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The front desk personell was very friendly the room was nice overall hotel standards were very good.
Beware, renovation under way. Paint on carpets, in sinks.... smell is in the air. Not sure why I didn't know about the daily parking fee ($14).
The room was pretty clean and adjacent to Newark Liberty International Airport. The view was just overlooking the parking lot. Nothing else. The lobby was very beautiful.
This was my third stay at this hotel and even better than the last two. The rooms, lobby, and restaurant have been very tastefully redone. The room was very comfortable with HD TV. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Even though near the airport, my rooms have always been quiet.
I arrived at 2 pm only to be told to wait an hour. Upon returning at 3 I was told the room wasnt ready and I could have a double bed. I refused and was told by the manager YOU CANT EXPECT US TO RUSH OUR STAFF. My toilet was broken. I was charged 3 TIMES for the same thing. Then I was told the only thing that can be done is a FREE DINNER....unacceptable treatment and horrible attitudes
Everything from the location to the meals include with the service.
everything else Slow Wifi..
From the moment we arrived until we left, the front staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Felix especially was very knowledgeable with bus schedules and Metros/trains leaving the area to go downtown NYC. Overall great time at this hotel. We forgot to bring bathing suits, don't forget that if you come!!
Was able to check in early with no hassle When my mom found a stain on the sheets the staff ladie came immediately to change the bedding Had a mini fridge,coffee maker and microwave in the room and an ice machine right down the hall The breakfast staff kept staring at me like I was going to steal something, that made me feel uncomfortable The WiFi didn't work very well but that may have been because of how many other guests were also using it
Everything was just perfect....
The staff are nice, too. Too bad the highway noise is the most annoying, but other than that, everything is goood. April
I liked everything about it I felt at home. Nothing
The staff was amazing, especially Yun. They were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Overall just a average hotel Staff limited English skills. Elevator smelled of vomit. Rate didn't match for condition, should be cheaper.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very comfortable stay. The pool and hot tub closes early.
Quiet Pillows too soft
The rates they have are 4star hotel rates and the hotel itself a 2star hotel. No value for my money. Beds aren't comfortable at all. The hotel itself as a whole could use some major renovation. Improvement on staff too. The old guy at the front desk wasn't that welcomimg. Being that close to one of the busiest airports around, a lot of money is being made so doing all those improvements is possible. All around environment
It's close to NYC Everything. Never felt welcome. Overall renovation from the staff to the rooms themselves. 4star rates and you get a 2star hotel.
Nothing Dirty- biker gang partying all night being rowdy
Lication to the airport at newark Hotel smell not clean
Convenient location, provided shuttle to airport very early in the morning. Requested wake-up call but never got one.
Every thing Nothing
I liked the shuttle to NYC. The hotel had a strong odor and I'd I need of some repair. Our room had obvious water damage and rust in the bathroom.
the room was decent the bathrook could be better atleast with fitting shower curtains. the fitness center was convenient also but its closes at 11, what about the guests that work late shifts that want a quick workout? any exceptions? the time the gym closes, no indoor pool, cafe was over priced, there were no king size bed smoking rooms.
Clean room. Good location. Good, affordable room service. There was a strong smell, like citrus cleaning fluid, throughout the hotel. I saw this mentioned on other reviews -- not sure of the issue there. Also, the tub drain was slow, causing buildup during showers. And during part of the stay, the wifi went down.
The room was super convenient to the airport and immediately off the hwy The bed was like a prison mattress, paint peeling, and I could hear the neighbors using the bathroom, not the toilet flushing actually USING THE BATHROOM....
Close to airport The room was filthy. There was hair all over the counter and dried toothpaste on the sink. We didn't feel comfortable sleeping in the beds with the rest of the room that dirty.
non smoking room, did have a bad smell of old smoking room.
the size of the room, the fact that there was a fridge and a microwave in our room they advertised a shuttle to the airport, but it didn't run on weekends, and it cost $10 pp, The area around the hotel is not that great.
Nothing The service was poor, it was a very unclean facility, and the would not recommend this is place to anyone.
The room was big and spacious. Very roomy. Also had a a extra space that has 2 seater couch to entertain guest. On my first night. The room was dirty has there was hair in the bathroom and leaving room area. The tiled floors felt sticky. After I complained, it was cleaned but yet it was not an excellent job as I could still see hairs but very minimal.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, large clean room, enclosed safe parking Slight lack of noise insulation from overhead room and outside traffic.
