My name is Amaury De Saint Martin and i was a client of your hotel. I was quiet unlucky... I would say that we are VERY disappointed of the services of the hotel. First of all, the rooms were not clean. The food of the restaurant - if we can name this like that - is totaly unacceptable and your... More

Having flown in late we were told that they had given our room away!!!!! This was due to a card error and nowhere in their policy does it say they will charge before you arrive. If we had of known this we would have given a different card as we are foreign travellers. They did not notify us in anyway.... More

We arrived at this hotel around 8.30 p.m. on the 3rd of July. Due to flight cancellation at Newark International airport our family searched for a hotel within the budget that the insurance was willing to pay. After making the reservation by the phone at the airport we had to wait nearly an hour or more before the hotel shuttle... More

This hotel is a true POS! Do not waster your time or money staying here. It is very apparent that the management here does not care!! Just read responses to reviews they copy and paste a response. I will NEVER stay here again. If I could have gotten a refund then I would have especially after Front Desk Clerk tells... More

I am very well travelled and have no problem staying in low budget hotels - I know to generally expect what you pay for. But this hotel was utterly awful. The reason we booked it is because we were landing at Newark around midnight with our two children and decided it would be a better idea to wait until the... More

We stayed here for one night as our flight was early in the morning and as we had been on a 3day excursion trip we didn't fancy the long travel from NYC. The hotel room was nice with all the amenities you need and they provide a free shuttle bus every half an hour which goes to the airport. The... More
