When I was looking for a hotel for my upcoming trip and saw a Howard Johnson advertised, I thought I would be safe choosing it due to it's halfway decent reputation. As soon as I drove up I should have turned around. It was a total mess out front. Garbage and cigarette butts littered the front walkway. Enough to fill...

Stayed here when a flight was cancelled & didn't want to sleep on the floor at the airport. Friendly front desk and convenient shuttle. Beds very uncomfortable and rooms were dingy, wouldn't stay again unless we really had to. All in all, not the worst place ever but it was pretty much exactly what we expected from reading the other...

Got stuck in Newark for the night so had to stay here. Even though it was only a night it was a cozy hotel. Free shuttles to and from the airport every half hour. The hallway carpets were a little dirty but our room was just fine. Had a microwave and a fridge! Easy check in and check out. I...

The room was comfy and clean. The staff were a little rude and didn't give off a nice impression of the hotel. We stayed 3 nights which was probably 3 nights too long. It's a very noisy hotel right underneath the flight path of planes taking off (which can't be helped) The hotel could do with updating, you can tell...

This was our 4th stay at this hotel. Despite the Manhattan distance, the cost-benefit of staying here is highly advantageous. Reforms and changes occurred since our last stay last year were great, especially the new staff, more attentive, helpful and polite. A complimentary breakfast, even though simple, is what is lacking for a perfect stay.
