She went above and beyond by making sure we got into our room and after we were in making sure I got credited my IHG points. The beds are very comfy and the housekeeping immaculate. The only...

Staff was friendly and extremely helpful! Upon check in I discovered that the reservation I had made over the phone was booked for the incorrect room type. The manager on duty, Jimmy, quickly recognized me as a gold member and switched us to a king room. He provided extra pillows and was very knowledgable about restaurants and things to do... More

As with nearly all Holiday Inn Express facilities this one ranked as a very good place to spend a night or two. It is new and well maintained though they cut corners with cheap plumbing fixtures that are already falling apart. It is next to I95 at Hiway 273. If you go into downtown Newark you are in for a...

Great hotel for a business trip. Clean. Room was orderly, simple, and comfortable upon arrival. Hotel looked to be new. Complementary breakfast in the morning offered a good selection of yogurt, coffee, cereal, pancakes, eggs, biscuits, bagels, sausage/gravy, jellies, jams, cream cheese spread. Exercise room a little small. 3-4 Cardio machines and some hand weights. Indoor pool and hot tub... More

Very nice, neat and clean Holiday Inn Express. Staff and common areas were very nice. The room was quite large, with a small kitchen. Check in and out was quick and easy. Truely a great find for the busy business traveler.

Hotel is really clean, room was also clean, pool is a bit cold and small but still nice. Breakfast had a good selection, and overall was a nice place to stay. Nothing to complain about. Will come back next year for sure.
