Recent guest reviews

We arrived there at 3:30. Our check-in time was at 3. So we asked for our room and the lady just out of nowhere with everyone just started giving attitude and tone. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Then we all called the manger and all of a sudden she acted nice again. I feel like she should be fired and until the hotel does not get nicer staff they have lot me as an costumer forever. REALLY RUDE STAFF

This is one of the few hotels that I give an excellent rating to. I DO NOT give this rating lightly..Checking in was quick and easy, the front desk staff was very helpful, the room was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The next time I am in the area, I will probably book another nite stay there.

First time in Jersery, hotel was in a great location. Very clean!

Good access to NY City, good facilities below average breakfast.

We have not received any complimentary break fast and problems with wifi.

Very clean ,staff was friendly,good bar and great restaurants within walking distance.

This is a great hotel close to Newark and to NYC. The bus to Times Square runs frequently. The ride is 15 minutes and costs $8 for a round ticket. I would like to go there again.

Instead of spending so much money for a hotel in NYC we preferred to stay here with my husband and 7 yr old. There is a bus stop and ticket machine in front if the hotel and the bus trip takes 15 min to NYC. It is clean, neat and quiet and the location is so good. There is Walmart, Dunkin Donuts and a great deal of restaurants near the hotel which is a plus. Free WiFi, microwave and refrigerator available. Staff is friendly.

Everything about this Holiday Inn was very good except one thing -- parking. The place is beautiful, the rooms are immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful and the restaurant excellent (except - guys buy some REAL maple syrup for the pancakes, please). There is free parking -- sure, about a quarter mile away. In the cold and wet this is unacceptable, and if you have packages or young kids, well... There are many garage spaces right next to the place, but guess what, they are for VALET parking only at $13.00 a throw. That is just not right. Get this one correct and you have a first class place to stay. Until then, I'd be tempted to look elsewhere where the parking is close by and FREE.

Location is perfect with a quick bus trip to the city. Parking is free which is a plus but you must park a block away. Room was clean, staff were nice, hotel food was okay. I would stay here or other hotels in this area again depending on the best price.

This is a good hotel if you wish to keep costs down and still be close to Manhattan. Manhattan is only a 15-20 min bus journery way (8$ round trip) with regular service. The hotel keeps a good standard and have helpful staff. Breakfast is not included but next to the hotel there is a plaza with many cafe/resturaunts.

This was the quitest hotel I have ever stayed in. I did not expect that at all. There were several places to eat all around the hotel. There was even a Wal-Mart and a Sam's within walking distance. The Bus stop was less than a block away. We rode bus 320 into manhattan. A round trip ticket to the Manhattan Port Authority costs $7.90. This trip takes about 15 minutes and you will be the first ones on the bus which means you never have to stand up! We flew into LGA airport. You can take a transit bus to grand central and then switch to a bus going to the Port Authority. From there, you will need to take the new jersey transit bus #320 from terminal #231. That will save you lots compared to a taxi. The taxi is cheaper from the airport than returning. We took the taxi from the airport because we didn't have all of this info beforehand. The port Autority terminal is located at 42nd and 8th which is about a block from times square. I hope this helps! It was a great choice.

First, the rooms were cold. I am a person who lives in Minneapolis, and even though that I felt cold. The only heating system is an air condition which is very old, makes so much noise when you turn it on and it also trow dust to the room. It is very unconfortable. We told to the hotel reception, they send us a tecnician who does not speak English and he did not understand even what was the problem. Second, the bed was confy but they put 4 small couch cuisons as pillows which is really hard to sleep. I really could not fall a sleep first 2 days, afterwards I was so tired during the day, I was able to sleep even on a wooden floor, so it did not matter anymore. Third, the transportation is that easy as it is written in the previous commends. You always end up waiting for at least 30-40 mins for the bus, because it does not come on time. And also sometime because the previous bus did not come, the coming bus is very full, so it does not take all the passengers. In fact, on the second day there was a snow storm and there was literally no tranportation from NYC to hotel. The road are not clean. We begged to a airport shuttle (none of the taxi drivers accepts to drive till hotel even if you give 100 $) and the vehicle stucked on the snow on a main road. Although there were many police officers or shuffling cars, noone helped us. We stucked at there for 3-4 hours and even at the end of that we gave 150 $ for two people. How we were resqued from the snow, I ll tell you. I got off the van and I dig the snow under the van, not the van driver. Maybe I should not even give 2 stars, but I believe there are worse places, so I saved the 1 star for them.

We visited NYC and went to the Radio City Music Hall with our 3 children ages 1, 4, and 7.The first night was fine, but the second night was very disappointing. We stayed in a room (3rd floor) that was right above a "party room". Around 10:30 we (my Wife and I) were woken from our sleep by VERY loud music that reverberated through the floor and walls of our room. I called the front desk 3 times. The first time the person I spoke to acted like they had no idea what was going on and said he would see that the noise stopped. It did not stop. I called a second time and the person I spoke to informed me that it was a hotel-sponsored party and that the music would be turned down. It wasn't. I called a third time, after putting my youngest back down to sleep at 11:30, to find out what was going to be done. I was told by the front desk staff that they could move us up a couple floors. Hmmmm, wake up my entire family, pack up all our clothes, toys, toiletries, and pack-n-play, move upstairs and then continue sleeping? Anyone with kids will understand why I decided against this plan of action. I asked to speak to the front desk staff - s/he was unavailable.[...] my Wife and I were left with no better solution than to sit awake for the next one and a half hours while the DJ and the party roared on. Waking up at 6 am to make the musical in New York would have been much more pleasant if our family had gotten a good night's sleep. We were never informed that we would encounter wall-rumbling music through the night when we booked, which is why I demanded my money back for the night's stay. The hotel is in a nice location but our last night's stay left a bad impression.

The Hotel is at an ideal location. Just come out of the hotel and catch Bus 320 to go to Port Authority Terminal. It takes only 15-20 minutes to reach New York. Breakfast was good and was cheap ($5). Beds were comfortable. Now the issues we faced. The hotel is under renovation. It's dirty, noisy and doesn't feel like a good hotel from outside. They didn't have any facility to surf internet or take print outs. I needed to take a print out so the guy at front desk offered his computer and printer to me. The elevator were so confusing. Probably because of the renovation thing. I could have given the hotel 4 stars but since it was under renovation, I didn't feel it appropriate.

The hotel was under construction. No one seemed to be there except for us( we had 4 rooms with our party). We had no clue about this when we booked. The staff was friendly and we stayed there before. However, Had we been aware of this construction in the entire lobby, we probably would have stayed at the Hyatt right next door.

This hotel has a great location which is close to NYC but not in the city itself. The NJTransit bus stop is about two short blocks from the hotel entrance. Cost into NYC is now $3.85 each way for adults. Bus 320 goes into Port Authority in NYC and runs until 12:30 a.m. We caught the bus from Port Authority after arriving on Amtrak and got the wrong bus which was what was reflected on the NJTransit website. Correct bus is 320. Transfer to subway or buses at Port Authority can all be done in the same building. Buses can take suitcases which can be stored in the bins under the floor. We had a deluxe double room that was on the top (8th) floor. There were two sinks, one in the bathroom and the other just outside the bathroom. The room was large enough for a desk and chair and an armchair with a footstool along with the usual console, night table, bench and beds. The lighting was good but no room darkening curtains. There was wireless internet at no charge. The hotel was undergoing a two month renovation scheduled through June 2010 affecting the restaurant. As such, the restaurant and room service were not available and the lobby was not in pristine shape. However, the hotel is on a mall with a Chilis, Burger King, Cosi, Cheeseburgers in Paradise and other eateries as well as other stores. Housekeepers were friendly, front desk less so. There were two outlets that were unusable due to alignment of face plate and lack of power to one outlet.

The stay is in good location close to the place where we wanted to be. Accomodation is good, Rooms are clean and STaff are polite. Very close to New York. Public transportation is accessible only 20 minutes to take the bus from and to New York. Bus top is right in front of the Hotel.

it was very clean and great location

great location. loved all the shops, restaurants, etc nearby. The bus service to NYC is a major benefit!
