The room itself wasn't bad, but the surroundings looked like a scene out of a "I Am Legend" and getting there was terrifying! I called before booking to make sure their shuttle ran late at night and was told it did. I was coming from Princeton and just needed a place to stay before catching a plane in the morning. I asked whether to get off the NJ Transit train at the Newark Airport or Newark Penn Station and they recommended Penn Station. However, they didn't tell me that there was a $12.50 fee for being picked up there until I was on my way out of the station. Nor did they tell me that it would take at least 15 - 20 mins to get back to the hotel or that I would have to wait outside on the street surrounded by rather scary individuals. Thank goodness there were 2 beat cops set up outside the door of the station the whole time I was there. They also told me to wait on the wrong side of the station since that side was closed at 1 AM. Newark Penn Station looks like it would be a scary place to visit during the day, but it was terrifyingly deserted down on by the tracks at 1 AM. I wasn't thrilled to not only pay the shuttle fee but also the additional train expense to go further only to have such a harrowing experience when I was already exhausted! The next day when I asked for their corporate number they gave me a wrong number that actually seemed like some sort of con. Room itself was nice and clean as well. The bed was comfortable, but I made the mistake of looking out the window and was so unsettled by the abandoned, rundown building and garbage in the street that I barricaded my door for the night! I can't believe I spent over $100 for this!
