Good for the price, close to airport

We wanted to be close to the airport. The Treat hotel is about a 10-minute shuttle ride. The pros: free 24-hour shuttle, price, and reasonable walking distance to Penn Station. Cons: outdated decor, trash on the floors, and we had to wait for our room to be cleaned upon check-in. Suggestion: stay in Hoboken or some other happening city if you have the time.

Nothing to do around the area unless you have a car!

The breakfast staff was excellent but the desk needed some work... waited for a shuttle that came, dropped off a person and suddenly left without asking us where we are going...

Best Western Robert Treat review

The hotel looks good, nice lobby. I didn't like the check in process since I needed to leave the car alone in the back with keys inside, no marked space in front of the hotel for check in customers, just signs showing that you cannot park there. The room was small but clean. The continental breakfast was minimum, usual stuff, except fruits (only apples available# and no yogurt available. Parking was free but shared with the local event in Prudential Center, so you cannot use your car on immediately basis since it was blocked into a crowded parking space. Restaurant in house looked expensive. Front desk people was not so friendly. Location is fine, neighborhood was not bad specially on the Mulberry Street #in the back of the hotel#, on Park Place #front of hotel) there are a lot of people on the streets, so of them want to talk with you while you are walking.

Location based

The hotel was used for location to Newark Penn Station to and from Manhattan. For that, it is very good with just a few blocks walk to the station. The room itself was nice, beds, desk, tv, refrigerator, etc.... However, the restroom was not updated and was bare bones. It sufficed. The staff was pleasant and tried to help when needed. The Wifi in the room works poorly, and when asked about it, I was informed the weather sometimes knocks it out. On clear days it is still poor. I was provided a cable to hookup at the desk in my room. It was a fix, but I would have preferred to have the Wifi work properly. The restaurant (Maize) was not that impressive. After traveling, or a night in the city, you would like a small bite to eat. Unfortunately, you have the choice of the dinning room or the bar, neither of which has food priced appropriately. I would recommend taking your business elsewhere. A funny story with the separation of dining and the bar. The room is a rectangle, with no walls separating the bar. My group of four sat down in the dining area and asked for the specials which were on the board. We were informed that you have to sit in the bar for them, and rather rudely, informed that is why they are called bar specials. With no seats at the bar itself, merely 20 feet from our table, we were moved one table over between pillars. Kind of silly, especially with the place being empty. I presume the bar and the dinning area are run separately. Again, if you are looking for a place to stay to visit Manhattan and take the train, it does the trick. If you are looking for a halfway decent hotel with some food, go elsewhere.

Niz Sushi, off of Central Avenue, is a few blocks away and a great value. The staff was pleasant, they provided complimentary mussels, the food was great, and once inside, you forget the drab surroundings of the neighborhood.

great location for a new york trip

I was on a trip to new york and the location of the hotel was great. It was easy to get to Penn Station for local transportation into the city. The only thing that was not so good was the linen on the bed. We asked for clean linen and that never happened. The rooms were small but comfortable. Altogether it was good.

Great Value for a Budget trip to NY

<10 minutes to Newark Penn Station and a 40 minute ($1.75) PATH train into downtown NYC. The price differential for this time investment is great if you're looking to make a budget business trip (since late nights on the City would make the 40 minute return less reasonable). The staff was nice & professional, the amenities were nice as well, but though the room was clean there was this... smell. Like wet beach towel. Again, it's a value, but not luxury.
