Never Again

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 10, 2015
I suppose there was a good reason I haven't stayed here before. Shuttle driver was on his cell phone the entire time both to and from and on both stays. Front desk staff not friendly at all. Rooms were disgusting. If I hadn't pre-paid on the return trip I would have gone somewhere else. Rooms in ill repair, old outdated fixtures, and cock roaches! Not a good value for the price I paid. Not sure I would have felt any better at 1/3 the price.

Airport stay

Would recommend Tue, Nov 3, 2015
The location was perfect to make a very early flight. Van service prompt. Shuttle drop off not at terminal but at AirTran but still convenient. Cafe was very limited.

Only Okay.

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 25, 2015
I stayed at this hotel only for one night because I had already been traveling all day and didn't want to go any further until morning. We took the shuttle from the airport to this hotel - only a couple of minutes. This was a bit less comfortable than other Holiday Inns I've stayed in. The room was mostly clean (I think) but musty. Old furnishings. But whatever, we just needed to sleep. In the morning, we decided to order room service for breakfast, because there were no other restaurants around. It came in about 25 minutes, but was not very good, by any means. It came in styrofoam containers, as though it had been purchased from a real restaurant in a to-go box. My girlfriend had never had room service before. She never will again. All in all, it was an inexpensive hotel, so you get what you pay for. If you want the Ritz, go to the Ritz.

I've had a great experience during my stay at this hotel, they have great staff, free shuttle to Newark Airport and back. There's also a shuttle to Manhattan at a minimum fee, I could not ask for better.

Would recommend Tue, Sep 29, 2015
We arrived at 9:00pm and left again at 5:30am, so our experience was limited. This HoJo seemed quite old and not as renovated over the years as one might expect. It was clean and comfortable, however, and we had a good stopover.

Unpleasant experience

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 29, 2015
Location of the hotel was out of the way the room smelled of air freshener in stale cigarette smoke it was dark and generally unwelcoming. The staff wouldn't give us a phone book for a taxi cab nor would they help us in getting one. We didn't stay at the hotel

Airport Overnight

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 22, 2015
This hotel will do if you're stuck in Newark. The staff is great and will take care of you. My room could have used an update but...the bed was comfortable. I just needed a sleep before catching a plane. If you're really picky...forget it. If you're looking for a bargain...this will be a fine place to stay.
