HORRIBLE NEVER AGAIN!

if i could give NO STARS i would. this is got to be BY FAR the worst hotel I've stayed at first and foremost every night i was there the floor smelled like weed. the second night we were there there was a group of people in the hallway with drums and were chanting from 1-3 in the morning. and the last night we stayed there we heard from across the hall a little boy say "PLEASE DON'T HURT HER!" needless to say the police were there a few moments later and the little boy explained to the police that "he was holding a gun to my mom's head" the police asked him if he had seen the gun and the little boy said "yes." ... throughout the whole night all you hear is sirens of cops and ambulances. the lady at the front desk she told me that her name was "mercedes" did not inform us that there is a shuttle to the train station instead handed us a MAP and told us where to walk to get there (which i complained to other workers about her and they all agree that she's a "not so nice woman" and said i should file a complaint. also i called the front desk and let them know that the TV had NO sound after watching it for 5mins or so... the TV never got fixed. the A/C didn't work. (yes i needed the a/c in this tiime of the year because when we walked in the room it was ridiculously hot. the towels the second day of coming there already had some kind of dirty "stain" on it... not dirt like brown dirty... but more of a yellowish.. sticky stain. i would NEVER EVER stay at this hotel nor wish it up on ANYONE to stay here. my experience at this best western pushes me away to stay at any of them. for the price at basically 130 a night i rather have stayed at a motel 6 for 50 a night. this hotel has no control over their workers and management is apparently so poor. i don't even know how it's open still.

Robert Treat

Our reservations were for three people in one room. Front desk people complained that [...] is always doing that to them and they cannot do that. They were very upset with us and finally gave us a cot for the room.

Perfect for a business trip...

Overall, this hotel was a nice place to stay. If you are traveling for a business trip, need to travel back and forth to NYC and are looking for a cheaper place to stay, this is the perfect place for you. It was a short distance to the city by the PATH train (the Newark Penn Station is a short walk from the hotel, about 10 minutes) and only took about 20 minutes to get to NYC. The only major downfall for this hotel is that there really isn't much at all to do in the area. Unless you have a car or are willing to travel to the city every night, you will be stuck in the hotel with nothing much to do. Also, the hotel food wasn't that great for what they charge. However, like I said before, this is a great place to stay for a business trip, especially if you do not want to spend an arm and a leg like you would in NYC.

YES!

A few of my friends and i wanted to do an inexpensive weekend trip, so we went to Newark to visit some friends. This hotel was in the perfect location! Food was in walking distance as well as the train station to go to NY. Not to mention it was affordable for a group of college students on a tight budget.

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 Stay

Once you find the hotel, and figure out the parking it is a great place to stay. The front of the hotel sits on a unique angled street, it can be kind of tricky to spot if your not paying attention closely. Parking is also tricky if you don't realize the lot is BEHIND the building and not accessable from the street the hotel address is listed on. Once you are in the hotel, everything was great! The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and quiet. Great linens and towels, comfortable beds and pillows. We stayed here for the convience and price, easy access to New York for all of our plans, good train schedule, and the hotel has a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes (free!).
