We stayed here for 1 night (the night of the blizzard) before our flight out the next day (which was delayed until after Newark Airport opened at noon). We checked in very easily and quickly. My husband parked the car at the airport and then took the shuttle back to the hotel. He said it was right there waiting at the airport so he didn't have to wait around for it.
The room was MUCH nicer than we expected. 2 double beds and they gave us a crib for the baby. It was very clean and roomy and comfortable.
The next morning we ate breakfast downstairs- a buffet. It was decent. Service was good. They informed us at the front desk that the airport was closed until noon (there was a sign). They had a screen with flight info in the lobby showing all the canceled/delayed flights. They also had computers with free wifi in the lobby that my daughter used to play disney jr. games on before taking the shuttle over to the airport (they called it for us and it arrived very quickly to bring us to the airport).
We booked this not expecting much- mainly just to avoid having to shovel out our car and drive in the morning and were definitely pleasantly surprised. If we ever need a hotel near Newark airport again, it will be this one.
