Was perfect for a quick stop-over closer to the airport for a quick shower & change for an early morning start with close access to city via taxi/train from airport. The shuttle service to EWR was prompt.

Horrible customer service;

The bathroom was not cleaned properly, the toilet seat was disgusting. The person at the front desk was unprofessional; his name was Ameht. The hotel was unkept. There were extra fees for everything. When we checked in, the man at the front desk had a nasty attitude and kept giving smart responses instead of trying to answer our questions. He just handed us our room key and went outside to smoke a cigarette. Horrible place and dirty it was disgusting I will never stay there again!!!!!!!!!
