Airport Overnight

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.

business trip

Convenient, clean, reasonably priced. Don't have much more to say, but they want a minimum of 50 chars. Silly.

Excelent to connect a flight

My wife and I stayed there because our flight left at 5 pm and needed a room for a few hours close to airport. The shuttle was very punctual, took us to Newark airport in less than 10 minutes. The room, although seemed old, was very clean, as well as the bathroom, and the bed very comfortable.

Good for 1 night stay

I only stayed for one night . Which was okay for this hotel. The staff was friendly .however, I was on the 3rd floor and it reeked of cigarettes,even though I'm pretty sure the whole floor was nonsmoking. It was close to the airport. But, first impression of the hotel outside was not nice .

Super convenient for flying out of Newark
