We stayed here on our way back down South. The room was comfortable. Only weird thing was that there were no electrical outlets near the night stand. The clerk was helpful and got us an extension cord. The best thing about this hotel is the people. It is obviously a family run operation. They are nice people. I would definitely... More

It is indeed a friendly place. THe room was clean, and spacious as other readers have indicated. Does not have a shuttle service. However if you have a car, it is indeed an option. I have stayed at many of the hotels at EWR and room-wise it is a bargain! However, it has limitations. First, it does not offer breakfast,... More

I picked here because it was handy for us wanting to stay somewhere we could drive easily to Newark Penn to park car for the day before hitting NYC it was that and staff friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Which is what i generally want from these kinds of hotel.

Very friendly family that runs this motel. The room I had was clean, and very spacious with fridge and microwave. And lots of TV channels! Good deal for the price. I stayed for 2 nights and had a good night's sleep both nights.

Although the rooms are a little dated the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We were given a king sized room for free even though our original booking was for a queen size. The room was extremely clean and quite big. We definitely were impressed by the quality we received for the price we paid.

Always a good welcome and great first night stay after a long day travelling. The room was clean and tidy. The beds have mattress protectors on and the linen was fresh and clean. It would be nice to have a light breakfast on hand(possibly a doughnut or something light) to start the day. A good stay again but would only... More

We found the staff to be charming and warm. From the moment we entered the door, the staff was extremely helpful...with luggage, finding food and beverage (in the midst of a snow storm). The rooms may be dated, but they are clean and comfortable. In the morning we found our car totally swept clean of snow. I would highly recommend... More

This was the cleanest hotel I had been to in a while. The staff was great. There was no elevators, we were on the second floor, the lady there helped us with our luggage. They were friendly to us, as we came in all hours of the night from NYC. Highly recommend this place.

Really cannot understand the reason of so many good reviews!!! This bring serious doubts on the method of evalation of Tripadvisor. I found nothing in this hotel: room with old (and old stye) furniture. No breakfast, no restos in the neighboor (minimum 2 miles). Strong smell of cooked food everywhere. Distance from Manhattan, with average traffic conditions: 1,5 hours. The... More
