When I first drove up, I was a little put off. It didn't look as nice as the photos on the website, and I was nervous about its location so near the Garden State Parkway, another major road, a gas station and a store. I'm glad I stayed several nights because the place grew on me. It was a drawback... More

We went to New Jersey Gardens over the holiday season. I found Kenilworth Inn through hotels.com for an extremely reasonable rate. I was a bit out off by the other reviews, but this place is amazing. It has undergone renovations and is now a luxury boutique style hotel. The decor is fresh and airy. There was a feel of comfort... More

-you listening?! This is a great spot to sit between New York City and the shore but with enough highway access so you are not feeling over-freaking-whelmed by being stuck in the dense Jersey City and Hoboken areas. You feel me? When you need to get into the mountains or the ocean, you need a good start off point and... More

I stayed at the Kenilworth Inn as a single for 10 days and enjoyed each day! The hotel is nicely remodeled and clean. It's location is convenient to highways, local stores, and restaurants in the surrounding areas. Staff generally helpful and friendly. They have a continental breakfast each day with fresh fruits, breads, juices, and muffins I liked a lot.... More

We checked into The Kenilworth at night and the person at the front desk was so helpful and attentive. She made us laugh which was great after a long trip. The rooms are a very good size and very clean and also includes a mini fridge which was great! The trendiness of the room and hotel decor made me want... More

We have stayed here a few times over the past few years and were always pleased. They seem to have upgraded the rooms in the past year (bathrooms, beds, etc). Rooms were clean. TV had great reception. Breakfast was OK for coffee and juice, but not much more. They could use a few more parking spaces, since the second night,... More

I stayed at Kenilworth for a few days during my trip to N.Y. First, I must say that it was one of the few hotels in the region that accepted me, since I am under 21. Second, it is one of the few in the region to have a very reasonable price and offer an excellent service. I was really... More

We had a very good experience at the Kenilworth Inn. The inside has obviously been renovated recently, as the rooms have nice modern decor, individual Keurigs (which worked great), good TVs, comfortable beds, lots of space, etc. Although it's right off the Garden State Parkway (our room faced the highway), it was still quiet. The best part of our stay... More
