We got in to Newark Liberty Airport and in order to take the free shuttle, you have to go to P4. Take the Air train and get out at P4 stop and look for the hotel shuttle pick up. Luckily, the shuttle was just pulling in and we didn't have to wait long. The hotel was less than 10 minutes away from the airport.
Check in was fast and purchased some items at the market store but they were very expensive. Our room was on the fourth floor and far away from the elevators and the hallway was pretty dark. We had a one bedroom suite with a sofa bed. I requested a rollaway and it wasn't there when we walked in and had to call and request for it. But they brought it right away.
The room looked like they recently renovated and the decor looked nice but it didn't feel renovated, like they did the basics so they can claim that it has. Also there were a lot of marks and stains on the wall and doors. It didn't seem like it was cleaned properly. The deal breaker was the linens for the sofa bed that my 11 year-old was going to use. The linens were neatly folded in the cleared zippered linen bag. The sheets, pillows, mattress cover looked clean but the fleece blanket had ATLEAST ten pubic hairs!! Ugh!! I think I'm going to puke. This isn't as bad as the dirty bare mattress at the foot of the bed at Mabuhay Manor or the pungent smell of urine of the shower curtain at Villa Camilla or the red carpet that looked black and the white socks looked like you walked outside but I felt really grossed out by this. It's the same as finding hair in your soup that isn't yours. Totally disgusting. I just flung it on the floor. I wasn't comfortable here at all, couldn't wait to check out the next day. I should have taken the blanket to the bath tub and ran water on it so they had to wash it but I don't think this hotel really cares about good service to their guests. I would normally complain or even mention minor problems when we check out but I didn't see a point here.
I chose this hotel coz it was close to the Jersey Mall, free shuttle to and from the airport and their free breakfast but trade off wasn't worth it. I won't be staying here again.
