Good solid bet

Robert Treat is a great place to stay when visiting NY area. Easy access to Manhattan via NJ Transit. Hotel is an excellent value. Very solid older property, with clean rooms and comfortable beds. Good breakfast included.

Good for access to downtown

I stay here every time I need to attend a clients appointment with immigration. Restaurant in basement is solid and after going to one of the "best restaurants in Newark" this trip I'll stick to the hotel. I wake up and walk to the interview so great for my purposes. Though one time I had a room. Next to the elevator shaft and did not sleep at all.

Wonderful Stay

Stayed one night to get my freshman settled at NJIT. The location is close to the school, can be walked but the light rail is nearby and very quick. The staff at the front desk were very helpful regarding best ways to travel about the city and which shuttles to use, etc. The hotel was clean, the room smaller than newer hotels, but the bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The carpeting in the hallways showed wear, but that didn't detract from the overall experience. The continental breakfast was more than adequate with egg, sausage and cheese biscuits, bagels, hot oatmeal and pastries. I thought the rate/price was very reasonable. I plan to return to this hotel whenever I visit my son.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

There is great shopping at the Jersey Mall near the Newark airport. The hotel has a courtesy shuttle to the airport, then there's a shuttle that's $9 RT from the airport to the mall.

Good value, comfortable, and convenient to EWR

Greatly enjoyed our stay here. We were arriving from a very long journey from Greece and needed a night to recover before heading even more west out of EWR. After staying a month away abroad, this hotel felt very cozy and comfortable to return to. The beds were comfortable and we were so excited to see that there were multiple fluffy pillows (something that many over our hotels abroad were lacking). It was wonderful to be able to wake up to a good continental breakfast spread. The hotel offered hard boiled eggs, sausage egg and cheese sandwiches, oatmeal, cereal, juice, yogurt, a limited selection of fruit, coffee, toast, and even make your own pancakes! It was easy to wake up to this and then to catch our flt at EWR after taking the hotel shuttle to the airport, which leaves every 30 mins and takes about 15-20 mins to get to the airport. This hotel isn't like staying in NYC because you don't have a tom of restaurants and other things around at your finger tips. Still it was great for what we needed on our day layover. Bottom line is it's not a beautiful 5 star hotel by any means but if want an easy and good experience while traveling from the airport, stay here. We would definitely stay again!

Correct. Convenient for NYC or Newark.

I wish the staff were more friendly and helpful. They were distant and listless - especially at the front desk.

Good Stay

Stay was pleasant enough. No serious problems. Internet totally sucked in the room though. Couldn't do my business. Of course you can go to the business center down stairs, but that was the point of staying there. I would like to do business in my room...which I couldn't. Refrigerator did not work. Ice machine was broken on floor. Loved the bar downstairs (Maize). Will return hopefully with better results as it was within walking distance of my work place.
