Best Western Robert Treat

Deal with the male staff if at all possible. The female staff is not friendly, not helpful, and certainly not customer service oriented (nor is their English very good, and when you can't understand what is being said, they get upset with you). Wish there had been a pool. The breakfast was really good for a continental breakfast. Rooms are big and very clean (even when we got stuck in a smoking room, it did not stink nearly as bad I was anticipating). Nice showers.

There's a restaurant right around the corner called 60 Park and they serve a mean burger (and the best potato skins we've ever had). They also had live jazz music that was outstanding the night we were there. Very, very fun.

Nice hotel in a bad location

Location of hotel was good during the day but after dark we felt uncomfortable walking around the area. There were very few places to eat other than in the hotel itself.

Overall good

Everything for this hotel is good. Free shuttle, breakfast, internet are big plus. Only thing which I found bad is front desk representative at night. He was very rude whenever I called him to pick up from aiport or train station.

Romantic getaway

The hotel was very nice. Easily accessible by public transportation. Provides free shuttle to Newark Penn Station. I called the hotel and the shuttle came to pick me up within ten minutes.

Just Okay

This hotel is an older hotel, the rooms need updating but you get a continental breakfast with your stay. The breakfast room is really nice, but they don't tell you about the breakfast or where the room is when you check in (it's on the garage level). The toilet in the bathroom was really weird, has a plunger handle like the public restrooms and you can't flush it unless the lid is down. Overall, the hotel wasn't too bad, it is very close to Penn station which is where you need to go if you are going to NY. The hotel has a 24 hr shuttle to take you to and from Penn station. A direct train ride to NY (from Penn Station Newark to Penn Station Madison Square Gardens) will cost you $10 round trip per person. The parking at the hotel sucks, it's free but extremely limited. The underground garage connected to the hotel is not owned by the hotel so if you are not careful and park there by accident you will have to pay. This was my first trip to NY and if you stay here, park your car and take public transit. The traffic in NY and the surrounding areas is insane. The only bad thing was that I wasn't too sure about how safe the neighborhood was. The train station is close enough to walk (only a few blocks away) but I opted to take the shuttle because I wasn't sure about the neighborhood. On our way home, I noticed that there was a 24 hr Subway restaurant a few blocks over so the neighborhood can't be too bad, but better safe than sorry. I would probably stay there again. A decent price, you get what you pay for in that area.

Take the train to Penn Station in NYC and leave your car at the hotel. Don't bother driving through NY.

Did the Trick

The Best Western Plus is a good location when you don't want to spend Manhattan bucks but would like to have the option of going into the city. We visited Newark to go to a Red Bulls soccer match, it's within walking distance to the stadium. The room was updated but we were given a handicap accessible room and I don't think the bathroom had been upgraded - just the sleeping area. Overall an OK stay that included breakfast (although it was very busy on Sunday morning).

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.
