They updated the decor and call this a boutique hotel, but it is a 1960s motor lodge. The positives- it was clean and there was adequate parking. The negatives- hallway carpeting and front lobby look tired, service at the front desk was disorganized and fairly unhelpful. The clerk in the AM allowed me to spend $4 for "designer water" without... More

We stayed overnight for a nearby wedding. The room was spacious and clean. This is a very nice hotel. The only thing I noticed that needs to be rectified is there is no elevator for those who need one.

This isn't your posh getaway. But it's definitely worth the stay. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The location lends itself to easily getting in/out on the Garden State Parkway which then gives you easy access to everything else. EWR is a bit further than I would like but it all depends on where you're spending most of your... More

BREAKFAST is not free, it use to be, all they serve is fruit, coffee, cold cereal, and stale muffins NO elevators, have to carry all your personal items up stairs, staff won't help you STAFF is unfriendly and not helpful, they don't listen to you and are very rude PARKING is terrible, have to park far away from the entrance

I was in the area on business and a friend suggested the Kenilworth. I was happy with my stay as my room was very clean, spacious and quiet. There were no odd hotel odors and everyone seemed pleasant. The computer table/desk, couch, refrigerator and king size bed was very welcome. My only complaint was the non complimentary breakfast. Charging for... More

Our hotel stay was fine . The best part was relaxing in the Trillium Lounge, thanks to Shonte. She went above and beyond in accommodating our tired group, and in making sure our cocktail requests were taken care of. The lounge was quite busy but Shonte took the time to use fresh ingredients to make the most delicious Sidecar I've... More

We stayed here for only one night, but still i feel like we got to know the staff pretty well. They were all so friendly and helpful. The shuttle's drove us back and forth to the airport, and they drove us to the train station when we wanted to go down-town. Really good service! Thank you :) The room was... More
