I read all the review and I was scared and my thoughts was what have I done booking this hotel? But I was wrong, staff was nice, room was clean no mouse or anything like that. Good buss connection to Penn station. I spend one night at this hotel and price was good for that!

By far this is the worst hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay at. The New Jersey turnpike was closed due to a accident and this was the only available hotel in the area. I now see why. I should have slept in my car at least I wouldn't be sleeping with roaches and cigarette smell. Had to... More

We booked this hotel through hotels.com (a company I strongly recommend against using as you will see by this story but also by other experiences I've described in other reviews). We had accumulated two free hotel nights ($100/night). Since we were going on thanks giving weekend, not many options were left. The reviews on hotels.com also didn't accurately reflect this...

My boyfriend and I wanted an affordable, easy in and out place to stay for just one night after flying into Newark. Upon entering this hotel, it was clear the conditions were deplorable and service was lacking at check-in. We went up to the room only to find no AC (in the middle of July), cockroaches in the bathroom and... More

My girlfriend and I had our flight cancalled due to weather and we needed a place to sleep. This was the only place left in closeness of the airport and we were really tired. As soon as we got to the hotel we had a bad feeling about the place especially when theres a sign saying bug exterminator comes every... More

If you need to stay in luxury accommodations this is not the place for you. Room was clean and since it was on the 8th floor it had a nice view, bathrooms could be updated. Area is a little sketchy but stores are close and everybody seemed nice enough. Delivery options for food. TV is nice (HD) and some premium... More

Neighborhood, out of the 2 nights stay, reception denied that they had any available parking spot in the parking lot which caused us to leave our SUV parked on the street (broken glass pretty much all over the street, proof that other cars had been vandalized before - nothing happened to our car but I couldn't sleep much just being...

If you have set standard dont go to Reviera Hotel in NewArk NJ. I have traveled in many cities and many countries but never seen any hotel in these terrible conditions It's smelly, it's filthy its old and it's not worth paying for that hotel. In top of that make sure you get the price that you reserve for and... More

Had the misfortune of having my flight canceled the other evening late after several other weather related cancellations that resulted in the nearby hotels being full. So just wanted a bed for the night and the hope of a shower. I did no expect much and did not get much. Neighborhood is suspect which resulted in the lobby desk being... More

I would give negative reviews if I could! I made the mistake of booking through a website that rhymes with Snotwire a week prior to our stay. We chose the area because of its close proximity to the airport for our overnight layover from Italy. I was with a group of 3 other lades and our first red flag was... More
