This hotel was recommended by AAA and seemed to be a good choice, location wise. While it was clean and comfortable, there's nothing special about it and I do think the rooms could use some updating as they are a little shoddy. In our room, the air conditioning unit very noisy and right over one of the beds plus the... More

I didn't find this hotel as bad as many other posters, but some inexpensive basic maintenance is desperately in order. For example, the toilet paper holder and towel rack fell off the wall, and the shower drain stopper was not attached to the drain. None of these affected the quality of my stay, but they are simple things to fix... More

First word that comes to mind for this hotel, smelly. The hallway leading to my room smelled like curry and sweaty armpits. The room was hot and smelled like the hallway, but worse because the air conditioner was blowing hot. The linen looked dirty and gave the impression that little visitiors were waiting underneath. Stay away from this place and... More

The first words out of my mouth were - " it stinks". The room smells incredibly moldy. I think the smell is coming from the carpet which is old and just looked dirty and was damp. I wonder if they shampoo the carpets and don't get the moisture out. The beds were comfortable and there was a decent size refrigerator... More

Good location near the zoo but the hotel and rooms are dated and appear dirty. The lobby rooms and hallways all smell strongly of disinfectant. I was getting a head-ache just walking into the room. I couldn't stay longer than 20 minutes.

Over the years I have felt ever declining expectations with Best Western. Perhaps it is my standard that has increased, but for me the Turtle Brook Inn reminds me of a motor lodge, with price being its best asset. Bed was comfortable, no clock in room and wake up call not delivered as requested. Bathroom had towel bar hanging out... More

After spending a couple of days on business at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, I came to spend the night at the Turtle Brook Inn before I caught my flight the next day. This is no comparison to the Hyatt Regency but it is a comfortable place to spend the night. The decor could use a little sprucing up... More

Looking for a place to stay in the Oranges? This one is located in West Orange and is within a few miles from Seton Hall University, the Thomas Edison National Historic Park, Eagle Rocks 9/11 Memorial, and is right across the street from the Turtle Back Zoo and Tree Tops Adventure Course.
