This hotel was a pleasant surprise. I needed a reasonable hotel with a low price and with free internet for some remote work on my corporate laptop. The wireless internet was free and fast. Unlike most hotel internet, I did not need credentials and the connection did not timeout. I was able to keep vpn connect all night and half... More

From beginning to end, terrible experience. Rude pm check in staff, all about the $$$. Increased our rate from what we were told then inflated bus metro prices to persuade us to use their overpriced shuttle to Manhattan. The 62 bus from the airport is $1.50 and the clerk argued otherwise to the point of being rude. The other worker... More

Overall, this is a great option for traveling in or out of Newark International Airport. Free shuttles run every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day! Two things to consider - parking, if needed will cost extra and although there is a restaurant onsite, they do not offer a free breakfast.

We keep coming back to HoJo at Newark Airport. Even though we live in the region, we don't take chances driving same day to those early, early flights. The price is right, and with Vista Parking and their reliable 24 hr shuttle right there, it's a great combination.
