I have to say this hotel is now one of my favorite Holiday Inns ! It is clean, has good food, a great pool and an amazing staff that treats you like family from the General Manager to the cleaning staff! Rooms are spacious and my wife appreciated the Kerig coffee maker. We will be back!

Just walking into the lobby of this hotel, i had the feeling i was in some kind of cheap road motel. The ones you pay 25$ a night for just to get some sleep. It smelt like smoke, it looked outdated.

Right off the nj tollway, which is cool, but the hotel is kinda old and in need of an update. Rooms are ok, ac is kinda loud. Service was fine, nothing special. Good location to newark and or airport, only 10 mins on tollway. Also quick access to Brooklyn or Wall St area via Verrazano Bridge.
