This has been my worst hotel selection ti on in 20 years. The entry was had a horrible smell. Even though I had a non smoking room the hallway smelled of smoke and marijuanna. The mattress was extremely hard not firm. The shuttle driver is rude. I checked out early.

The bathtub had a ton of hair on the sides from the previous guest. The room smelled overwhelmingly like bleach but still seemed overall unclean. The staff was friendly. The location is terrible.

Bed was hard and springy. Front desk person was rude and un-accomodating. Cockroaches in the bathroom. Overcharged me from what was quoted.

This hotel is located in close proximity of EWR with a stuttle service. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You may get disturbed by airplanes taking off late in the night. Breakfast is best avoided at this place

All the information online was correct. Shuttle bus service to airport, two beds in my room. But, it was not friendly. It was not a good bed. There was no one who would help me printing out my boarding pass. I had to do it myself with a computer available to customers.
