I reserved because of price and convenient location. When I got there, I noticed used needles in the parking lot. I thought, well consider the area, and didn't hold the hotel responsible. However, after a few days, the needles didn't get cleaned up. The room was alright, newer bed, mattress & furnishings; good internet signal, etc. Bathroom was very small.... More

I'm writing this review at 1:49 am . Yes you read it right. The hotel is packed with "friendly" ladies, loud cars and a parking lot party that does not stop. Saturday night. The rooms stink . The only reason I booked it was for the price not worth it. Can't sleep or rest. The continental breakfast is joke. Stale... More

This hotel is located right on route 22, about 25 minutes or a 60 dollar cab ride from Newark airport. There's a IHOP across the street and a liquor store two blocks away. It will keep you dry. It is very basic, but it is what a HoJo should be.

Realize that this is an extraordinary winter but on arrival the entrance to access the rooms was in terrible shape (e.g., had to walk over snow/ice mounds). Very little improvement made over the next 2 days of stay.
