Was in north Jersey on a business trip. Had to take a break and meet an elderly relative in Westfield and get her out of the house for the day while her apartment is being painted. Couldn't stay at her place because of the painting. Checking the map, she is in the center of a triangle formed by three surrounding... More

Down for a wedding nearby and was suggested this place since we are not familiar with this area of NJ. All but completely remodeled (there is no lobby or front desk yet)-but the rest is totally top-notch. The rooms are large and spacious, so the bathroom. The king bed we had was heavenly delight to my well traveled bones, large... More

I recently stayed at the Kenilworth as part of the "sleep and fly" program which allowed 4 girls to leave our vehicle for 10 days which was exactly what we needed. The rooms were nice, clean and modern. Also included big bathrooms, WiFi and keurigs. We got on the 4:00 am shuttle for the 6:00am flight we had. We were... More

Zero hot water. Tried to call the front desk to report the lack of hot water - phone didn't work, neither of the two. Half-assed renovations, damaged ceiling tiles walls and fixtures and furniture. These people do not know how to run a hotel. Plus, leaving the parking lot there is a cop that stakes out the driveway because for... More

Recently my Mother In-law passed away after a battle with cancer. My wife is working on her service and directed everyone including ourselves to the Kenilworth Inn to stay for the services.

In process of renovations but a very nice, clean hotel. Wonderful continental breakfast. Nice big grocery store next door. Had trouble with wifi signal. Have to travel a bit for restaurant options which can be time consuming with NJ traffic. I am very picky and was very comfortable here!

Reliable choice at a good price. Very nice staff. Right off the parkway, close to airport and 30 minutes to cruise ships and Holland Tunnel. Free parking. Comfortable rooms. Great for visiting relatives, etc.

Needed accom close to Newark Airport for myself and a friend with a baby. Undergoing renovations, but the room we had was lovely, and the staff were polite and helpful. Food was extremely tasty, if a little long in coming - but with the renovations the kitchen facilities were reduced, so this is only a temporary glitch I am sure.... More

For what this is, it is rather nice. What is it? It's a newly renovated hotel, conveniently located 30 minutes outside of Manhattan with prices that are approximately a third of what you would expect to pay in "The City". Moreover, for those who need to be at Newark Airport for an early morning flight, this is the place to... More
