I was looking for a Hotel near Newark Airport and most of them were over $100, this one was around $80 per night. I've been at a Howard Johnson in New York before and I liked it. But this one was not as good. When I got there the front desk said I had to pay $15 per night for... More

hojo at ewr is very convenient, and it is pretty clean, but not luxurious, which is why it fell into my expenditure range. the restaurant was closed at night, but i got an okay breakfast and good coffee in the morning, very reasonably priced.

Did a park and fly. Room was shabby, bed was sad and old. Didn't really feel safe there. When I checked in there was another guest arguing with the manager. There was yelling and a very tense atmosphere. Came back from my vacation to find coffee poured on my car

When I was looking for a hotel for my upcoming trip and saw a Howard Johnson advertised, I thought I would be safe choosing it due to it's halfway decent reputation. As soon as I drove up I should have turned around. It was a total mess out front. Garbage and cigarette butts littered the front walkway. Enough to fill... More

Stayed here when a flight was cancelled & didn't want to sleep on the floor at the airport. Friendly front desk and convenient shuttle. Beds very uncomfortable and rooms were dingy, wouldn't stay again unless we really had to. All in all, not the worst place ever but it was pretty much exactly what we expected from reading the other... More
