“Should have been closed!!!”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

We should have been warned ahead of time that they were undergoing major reconstruction when we made our reservation. The entire first floor is being completely renovated. Only the 3rd and 4th floors were being booked, and when we entered our room, we were hit with an overpowering smell of air freshener. Beds had two old horrible pillows on them each, pillows that were lumpy and looked used. Room was mostly clean though. Nothing in the hotel worked. All the ice machines and vending machines were broken. The lobby was totally gutted and smelled of cement and chemicals. They really should just close during renovations. We would have gotten a different room somewhere else if timing wasn't such an issue for us. We surely won't be staying there again. The pictures looked so nice to, what a disappointment!!

As of Oct, 2011, this Ramada Inn is undergoing MASSIVE restoration. The whole lower floor appears as if it is in tornado recovery. The tiles are unfinished, cement dust is everywhere. You can see through many of the walls as the sheet rock is removed leaving a skeleton of framing. The fitness center is covered in dust and debris without protecting the equipment and is marked "unusable." Fortunately, we were able to cancel our reservations, but were forced to go to neighboring state to find accommodation. No one should have to track cement and building dust on their shoes and suitcases in getting to occupiable sleep space. They should be closed until the work is done!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel because we were purchasing a car from the area..we wanted a decent hotel but didnt have to have any frills..it was only for a night. Surprisingly the hotel was very nice..it was under construction...a new restaurant, however, we were very surprised at the cleanliness and teh amenties of the hotel. I would definately stay there again if I was in the area.

We were here in Aug 2011. This is an older motel, but it's in generally good condition. The room was spacious - 1 king bed plus a work table and an easy chair. There was a refrigerator and microwave also. 1 luggage rack, but there was room to put a 2nd suitcase. The bathroom was small and the bottom of the tub looked like it could use a good cleaning. There were 60+ TV channels. The front desk staff was friendly, but not knowledgeable or helpful. The guest book in the room said to ask the front desk for a menu to a restaurant that delivers - they couldn't find one but told us to look it up online. Breakfast was great! They use their ballroom as the breakfast area so there was more than enough room for everyone. They had scrambled eggs, cereal, bagels, muffins, pastries, fruit juice, coffee, milk and waffles. There was at least 1 attendant there all the time, clearing tables, checking the food, etc.

Stayed here for one night for a quick visit to the area, and concluded that this place had the best fit for location and value. I'm pretty sure I made the right choice.

The non-smoking room had two beds, full bath, phone, AC, microwave, mini-fridge, hair dryer, iron & board, coffee maker, radio alarm clock, and TV with 88 channels. Free amenities included parking, wifi, hot breakfast buffet, pool, exercise room, and two PC's in the lobby. The room was clean and well-maintained. Staff was professional.

Motel is located right off Exit 160 of the Garden State Parkway. Several highways intersect in this region, so you will definitely need a map to get there if (like us) you happen to miss the exit. It is NOT a simple matter of getting off at the next exit and coming back, as most exits on these highways do NOT have a way to easily turn around. After missing the exit, we got off at the very next one, then, even WITH a map, we spent 20 minutes trying to return to this street. Between traffic, signs that told us nothing, and turns that seemed like good ideas but actually just got us more lost, it was not a pleasant effort to go back less than a mile.

The motel is just a few blocks from a major mall. Other than that, the area is a place to spend the night while you spend your days going some place else. New York City (the obvious choice) looks close on the map, but the simple fact is that thousands of people are doing exactly that every morning, and returning every night. Thus, you will expend a fair amount of time and effort to get there. If you're visiting NYC, I recommend you spend the extra money, or give up size or amenities, and stay on Manhattan.

But if, like us, you actually are visiting someplace in the area, this is an excellent choice based on value and nearness to freeways.

Ok I booked this hotel because I knew the area and needed something cheap, and with easy access to NYC via public transportation, but that also had a parking facility.

Rooms were clean service was good and I really don´t know what the other people are complaining about in the other reviews. The hotel itself it kind of old and needs some work, but nothing major. An old carpet here, some torn wallpaper there, but keep in mind the price that you are paying. It has a bus stop right on the corner which you can take to Port Authority bus terminal that is GREAT! It´s the 163 or 164 NJ transit bus. Fare is about 4,25 each way.

Now some people complained about noise at night and that is true, ONE night some other guests were kind of loud, but nothing that made me loose any sleep.

You even get a free breakfast in the morning which is pretty OK as well. I was expecting nothing for the price. You can get a fresh waffle, some juice, coffee and other things which they offer from 6am to 9 am if I remember correctly.

Room was clean, sheets and pillow cases were clean and changed daily. Bathroom amenities were also very good, with just a little wear and tear to the shower ceiling.

Other advantage is that there is a 24h Shoprite just a block away and the Garden state plaza mall is also just a block away. Very easy to walk to.

So to end this review I would recomend this hotel to anyone who is on a budget. And just wants someplace clean and cheap to stay at.

I will be staying there again in July with my GF so she can get to know NYC, as hotel prices in the city are outrageous and anything cheaper has a SHARED bathroom and thats a BIG NO NO in my book.

Oh and before I forget there is FREE WIFI which was pretty good, and they also have some computers in the lobby that are free to use. FREE things in the NYC area are very rare!
