We booked this hotel about a week in advance of our stay. We came to NJ for a funeral. The staff was extremely nice, check-in was quick and easy and the suite we had was clean and comfortable. The hotel was in a very convenient location for everywhere we needed to be. Only complaint was that at 10:30pm, the housekeepping... More

Our family of 4 was searching for a place to stay close to NYC that would fit our budget. This just happened to be the place. There are a couple of other decent hotels in Avenel near the Rahway station, but this worked out for us because our family isn't little anymore and we needed more room. Accommodations: Double queen... More

Great location, short walk/drive to lots of restaurants. The rooms were nice, clean and bright. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Holiday Inn Express hotels don't really offer much in the way of extras, its the staff that count and these were a credit to the hotel

This was supposed to be a two night stay but we left early. There were some problems in addition to the noise mentioned by other reviewers. First, we had booked a queen suite so we could use the sleep sofa. When my son took the cushions off, he found popcorn, cereal, stains, etc. It was so filthy, he chose to... More

One of the 1st things I look for when I enter an hotel room, is the state of the carpet! The hotel, both carpet, bed linen, towels, walls everything is so, so spotless that I am overly impressed!

The area this hotel is located in is not very salubrious. It is on a busy main road with used car sales lots and some run down buildings. But this hotel is a little oasis. Plenty of parking and comfy and well kept rooms, with a spacious and comfortable breakfast room. But best of all are the staff. Very helpful... More

We just needed a place to stay two nights, do laundry and rest up. This was perfect. Great washer and dryer. The whole place was spotless. Breakfast was up to standards. Had a microwave and fridge in room so we didn't have to venture out (though we did find a great diner nearby!). Best of all was the staff. They... More

Have stayed here before & would stay again. Clean, comfortable, good value . Only complaint was that boo hoo pancake machine at breakfast was not working. Other than that all went well . Always greeted by front desk which is nice.

This hotel is kept clean, the breakfast is decent and the pool and fitness centers are well kept. The hotel is located on Route 1 so it is convenient for local travel. The staff were helpful and friendly. And the rooms are nice and provide all of the comforts you are looking for in a hotel.
