I traveled here for business. The room was clean and quiet, but a little small. Nice breakfast. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious. This was also the best buy for the area, and easy to get onto the highway.

Shower curtain is INSIDE frame of tub and has large loops around the rod making clearance inside the shower about 15 inches. You cannot take a shower without the shower curtain sticking to...

Great stay, very clean and professional. I had even lost my wallet (did not realize I had left it in the room) and when I called they had already found it and put it into a safe. With the hundred dollar bills intact and all they kindly mailed it to me UPS. A ++++++

Renovations are underway but thus did not impact our stay at all. Room was quiet and comfortable with fridge and microwave. Great sandwich/deli place just down the street. Great facility for events. We were able to get a rollaway bed, but had to ask at desk and then call before it arrived. Nice street with a variety of shops nearby

We enjoyed our stay. Very clean and bright. Seem to focus on weddings but we stayed while visiting Montclair University. Pretty good breakfast included. Polite staff and beds were pretty comfortable. The lobby was under construction, but it seemed it was due to a sprinkler incident. Even so, lobby was pleasant. Would definitely stay again!
