With little expectations, we checked in and the lobby was chic and boutique, not what we expected at all. Front desk check in was utilitarian, nothing amazing, but got the job done. In the area for a wedding, so we only stayed one night and its right off the Garden State Parkway, so easy to locate. Rooms are spacious, clean... More

We stated here for 2 night unexpectedly. Our car broke down on our way to our vacation destination. This hotel was literally across the street and had availability. We used the pool which was very clean (although small). We ate at the restaurant 5 times (no car, so we were stuck there!) but the menu had enough to choose from,... More

We stayed 2 nights here for an event nearby. The hotel is very convenient to the highway, the front desk was really helpful and the bar downstairs was great. The hotel is pretty busy lots of tour groups and events seem to be staying there or are held there. The room was large and clean. Its very basic obviously since... More

We had another 5 star stay at the Holiday iNN Express in Clark, NJ. From the warm welcome of Philomena at check in. She was assisted by Raheel and Derek. It was extremely busy as they had weddings, graduations and groups all checking in. I requested rollaway for grandchild and John, had in our room before we unpacked. The staff... More

Finding decent hotel accommodations in Newark vicinity isn't so easy and this may be a clapped out and tired Holiday Inn (it really is) but it has been renovated in such a way as to make it tolerably pleasant for the business traveler. Check in was easy & pleasant,(snacks etc available for purchase) parking plentiful. Rooms were nice & spacious... More

This hotel serves as a role model for Holiday Inn's all around the country. Newly renovated rooms and public spaces, along with a great staff make this hotel a regular choice of hotel. Ask for a 6th floor room!

I have not always been impressed with my Holiday Inn stays. So much so, that I tend to steer clear of them. This Holiday Inn has changed my mind. Great food and bar area with a friendly staff, clean rooms, and a nice area within a short drive to the wonderfully fun Westfield downtown historic area with Revolutionary War graveyard,... More

Had to stay in Clark because our flight was cancelled. Rooms were nice. Staff was great. Had to complain about noise around 2 am. Taken care of immediately and free breakfast for our troubles. Very happy with shuttle too.

This is an odd review because to be honest, I did not have the opportunity to stay here. Our tournament was cancelled at the last minute. HOWEVER, the process of both reserving and cancelling my rooms was handled in an outstanding, customer-focused manner and left me very satisfied. I would definitely book this hotel in the future if my plans... More
