“Value for Money, comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I was on a business trip, so main advantage was near to airport. but for pleasure trip, it is convenient only if you have a car.
Rooms were comfy, but Bathrooms need serious improvement, we had to change room on the first day because of chocked wash Basin, and the new room wasn't much of an improvement.

but during renovations, it seems they would cover that part as rest of the rooms and amenities are satisfactory. also description which states 2 double beds double room actually turned out to be twin single beds in single room. they need to state that clearly while booking.

staff is cordial.

all in all, value for money and good for business travelers.

I just stayed at the Ramada for a 3 day bagpipe workshop and competition. This was the host hotel and after reading previous unfavorable reviews, I actually made reservations at another hotel. Not being familiar with the Newark area, however, I changed my reservation (reluctantly) to the Ramada so I wouldn't have to bounce back and forth between hotels. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Ramada hotel and my entire experience here.

I can't say I'd choose to come to any airport hotel for vacation but as a venue for an event like this, the Ramada was fine. I will say the first noticeable thing about this hotel is the staff. They are amazing! Every encounter we had was a positive one! I would describe them as exceptional!

The hotel is undergoing renovations but it really wasn't much of an inconvenience. Our room was very clean and nice. One morning, there was no hot water but we just waited til later in the day. No big deal. That was a Sunday and we did notice more construction noise so it's possible, the hotel was doing more work then so as to not inconvenience any more people than necessary. The walls are a little thin but that's to be expected in most hotels. Only an issue when someone next door was up and about very early.

The restaurant was very good. I would say the food was much better than most hotel restaurants I've been to. The only down side was that because they're not technically part of the hotel, you can't charge things to your room. Again, no big deal.

I worried for nothing. This was a fine hotel and I would come back in a heartbeat. Actually plan on it if the same event is held here next year.

Thank you for providing feedback regarding your stay at The Ramada Plaza Hotel.

Metro Cup competition is a long term friend of the hotel. We look forward year after year to hear the first sound of the bagpipes, it is truly our honor to have the group stay with us.

I do apologize about the hot water, there was a surge that tripped the water heater and as you mentioned it was back and running almost immmediately.

Thank you for the all of the positive feedback you provided we look forward to you staying with us again next time.

Ten minutes from Newark Airport. Nice place good rooms. Food in restaurant was really good with reasonable price and recommend the burgers. Ask for room that does not face the railroad tracks. My room faced the tracks, had double pane glass so noise was minimal.

I booked this hotel by accident and I'm glad I did. My wife and I usually stay at another hotel at EWR when we travel and book a park, sleep and fly. When I pulled up to this hotel, it was a good looking property. The room was clean and comfortable. The room looked like it was recently updated since there was construction going on elsewhere on the property. The lounge was nice with many televisions for sports. I would and will stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stay at this hotel almost every weekend. The rooms are always very clean, bed is big and comforable but it is the staff at this hotel that makes us keep coming back. Christina works in the restaurant and she is always very friendly, courteous and professional. She remembers us by name and we look forward to seeing her in the restaurant. Nora works in the convenience store and she is very sweet and helpful if we forget to pack something, she will find it for us. The Housekeeping staff are very friendly (wish I took their names down) they are very accomodating with extra towels, soap etc right away. The Hotel is a nice stay but it's the people that work there that make the difference for us and we enjoy staying there.

Room Tip: The hotel is overall very quiet as we stay in different rooms, different floors. This is a non-smoki...
