Unbelievably crummy. Nealy inaccessible, surrounded by parking lots.Vending machines inoperable -- dollar bill device refuses dollars, quarters dispensed a package that jammed and could not be reached. Managers said "3rd party -- nothing we can do." There is a bar, but serves no alcohol. Proves you pay for what you get -- paid very little, got same. At least the...

A decent place to stay if you need to catch an early flight at Newark Airport. Property looks dated; the management isn't putting any money into the facility. The $15 parking fee for hotel guests comes across poorly, but if parking was "free" then the fee would be built into the room rate. Wi-fi was included, so we'll give them...

I stayed here while touring NYC, and it was the right price for my budget at the time. It was receiving a face-lift, and my impression of it was seeing the construction in progress but that was in 2012. The staff were friendly. I did get rattled by a jet engine about midnight but isn't that to be expected next...

Upon arrival at the Howard Johnson Hotel near the Newark Airport, we were greeted with friendly staff. The room was clean with all the amenities. However, the toilet flushed loudly for a couple of minutes....but, it worked fine. The King size bed was comfortable and the staff were welcoming. We were so happy to land upon such a hotel during...

In my opinion this was a very good hotel for the price I paid. I went here just for one night 'cause my connection flight wasn't until the next morning. I got just what I needed, a nice bed and cozy room to get a nice bath and few hours of sleep before my flight. The room was clean and...

The room was booked so we'd be able to make an early flight. It was difficult to find the hotel & seemed to be in a very industrial area. The hotel is close enough to hear planes going overhead. Checked in after 10 & swear it smelt like pot. Room didn't seem super clean. Bathroom had burn marks around sink...

Room and service was good. The bathroom could use a little help. there is no bathroom fan in it, therefore the ceiling was a little mold stained. The food in the restaurant was good.

I arrived late night - troubles with the van driver getting out to the airport started things off. Check in was pleasant, but the room smelled like something decaying - not super strong but very noticeable. Like old seaweed. I first smelled it in the hallway when I got off the elevator. The room itself was nice enough except for...
