“Super Storm Sandy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

My son (22yrs old) and 3 friends stayed at this hotel on 10/29 due to the fact they were running out of money since thier flights had been cancelled and they could not afford to stay at the Marriot any longer. From the moment they checked in they said staff was rude and not helpful with storm info. They ended up running through the storm from the hotel when they could feel the building shaking and things flying from the roof. And still the staff was not helpful with info., The ended up at the Crowne Plaza where they had to purchase another room and could not hear or better yet feel the storm. Mind you these kids are from so Cal and have NEVER been through anything like this before. I am very very dissapointed and will be taking this matter further.

15 minutes.... That's the TOTAL time we spent in this hotel..... 5 minutes checking in, 5 minutes in the room and 5 minutes recovering out the front waiting for a cab!!!
The time we were in the building is an indicator of what we thought of this hotel. Walking into the room we were struck with an overpowering stench, that had me almost vomiting by the time we left again. My daughter and I both agree that the smell of the streets of Bangkok city was better than this room.
I'd like to rate this hotel in the negative.... Can I have a -5?!?!!!!!!

Although we prefer to stay in more luxurious hotels, this hotel provided a great option at a terrific price when we were going on a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Port Liberty. We stayed one night before the cruise. The hotel provided free internet, free breakfast, free transportation to the ship (one-way) and free parking for the time that we were on the cruise. The hotel was clean and the staff was terrific. Although the hotel was not in the greatest neighborhood, the parking was secure (14 foot fence - totally enclosed).

Stayed with my fiancé for 4 nights. The hotel was clean, the staff was nice and friendly, large rooms, excellent value. Breakfast was good and free with fruits, juice, yogurts, omelets, breads, waffles, etc. I've rented a car, but we left the car at the hotel and went by train to Manhattan. The hotel has a good and safe parking. It's just 10 min walking from Newark Broad St. And by train 20 minutes to New York Penn Station. Returning from NYC we've walked by neighborhood after midnight, the place was pretty empty, we're feelig nervous, but we've had no problem on our way back to the hotel. During the week the traffic is very bad, better to avoid leaving car at peak times. The hotel is near from Jersey's Gardens Mall, Walmart Kearny, Newark Liberty Airport. Definitely would return to stay at this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was overall very clean but there was a weird candy-product-like smell in the corridors and room. Staff was very kind and welcoming. Breakfast was very good with great amount of options: variations of eggs every day, one side meat (bacon/sausages/ham), waffles, yogourt, bread, etc. Broad St. train station is only a 15 min walk away and leads you straight into NYC for $5. The neighborhood doesn't look safe at all at night even if it may be. Went on Broadway one night and came back pass midnight and we were feeling a bit nervous on our way back to the hotel.

I recently stayed at this hotel for business. My business partner had checked into the hotel earlier in the afternoon and I was arriving that night. Having years of experience in hospitality security I was quite shocked when I arrived at the front desk, gave the name of my colleague and was handed a key to the room. Never was my ID checked or was I asked for my name or the room number.

Room Tip: If you value safety and security do not stay here.
