This hotel needs an update. The minute my family and I stepped into the lobby all we could smell was cigarette smoke. The staff were very nice, but the furnishings were stained, out dated and run down. As much as the beds in the room were comfortable and the air-conditioning was working (helping to partially drown out the noise of... More

My daughters and I stayed here for the sole purpose of visiting New York City. The FREE shuttle to the Rahway Train Station was fantastic and only took 5-8 minutes to get there. We used the shuttle everyday and when we returned back, I called for a pick up and never waited more than 15 minutes for them to come... More

This hotel is right off the New Jersey Turnpike, seems like it was right on the exit ramp. The hotel itself is very old and worn out. There is a sign in the room saying that if you cannot rate them excellent, please let them know before you leave so they can fix any problem, so I give them credit... More

I must say, this hotel has some of the most friendly staff I've seen in all my years of traveling! I not only entered the doors to a warm welcome, but also to a tray of delicious cookies beside the desk. Yum! We stayed in a double room which was immaculate and the kids were ecstatic about the pool. It... More

We stayed 3 nights in this holiday inn. Firstly it doesn’t have an elevator and they put us on the second floor despite us checking in with my wife’s 87 year old grandmother who has mobility issues. We had called ahead to the hotel to let them know about this but this was not accommodated on check in. As for... More

We booked overnight for our trip our of town. Hotel was clean, very reasonably priced and the shuttle service was good. It did take about 40 minutes after we called for a pick up so just call early. It's a little dated but if you're catching an early flight out of Newark I would recommend it and stay again. It's... More

Stayed here this past weekend. This hotel is located just off the New Jersey Turnpike exit 12. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is very clean. There is a restaurant and bar on site. The food choices are very basic, but if you don't want to leave the premises, it will suffice. There is an outside pool. This... More

Nice hotel south of Newark, NJ. This hotel is just a few miles from IKEA and not far from a large Outlet Mall. It is right off the freeway however you have to pay attention to your GPS or phone navigation to get to it and get back on the freeways. The rooms were clean, had plenty of outlets for... More
