“Great hotel, great service, great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We stayed at the Best western Robert Treat hotel New Jersey for one night prior to our flight from Newark intl airport.
This is a great hotel with a magnificent legacy. The concierge at the front desk was very nice and helpful, the room was clean and spacious, and the shuttle service to the hotel saved us a lot of money, as we used it also to get to the Jersey Garden's shopping outlet, and to the airport.
9 minutes walk to Jersey's Penn station, and 20 minutes more by train to the World Trade Center in Mannhatten NY.
Overall, a very nice hotel, A great value for its price.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The hotel itself was actually very nice, and the rooms were spacious and clean. I really liked the fact that we had a safe in the room that you could program your own code, which made me feel comfortable about leaving my ID and passport in the room.

The continental breakfast was better than I expected, and I was surprised to find they offered hard boiled eggs and oatmeal, which offered a little bit more substance then the bagels. However if be sure to get to the breakfast early, it can get pretty busy and there is never anywhere to sit, but the staff does an OK job with keeping everything stocked.

The staff were friendly, they didn't offer exceptional service or anything, but at least they were polite.

Parking at the hotel was included which was nice since we drove there, but parking at the hotel is a NIGHTMARE, there is not a lot of parking available and the spaces are really tight and hard to get into (we got lucky and could see our car from our window)

the best part of the hotel was the shuttle, we took the shuttle every morning to the train station to take the train into the city (its like 2$ a ride) but I know it goes to the the airport as well. During the day that have more than one shuttle and we never had to wait when we left in the morning, when we returned in the evening all we had to do was call the hotel and they would send the shuttle over, we never had to wait more than 15 minutes. Beware however that the streets outside of the train station are a mess and you usually have to run into the middle of the road to catch the shuttle, it never pulls up directly to the building.

The worst part about the hotel however was the area! Newark is a very sketch area, and while the train station is only about a 10 minute walk from the hotel I wouldn't suggest it, especially at night. There isn't much in the way of shops in the area and the people in the neighborhood are a little on the rough side. because of there area there were times that I would see some unpleasant looking people hanging around withing the lobby but security was usually always around.

I would probably stay at this hotel again due to the price and the proximity to the train station

Non Smoking rooms smelled like smoke the entire time. Notified manager of this issue and was informed that he would send to security to check to see if any one was smoking on that perticular floor. Every day room smelled of smoke. Overall staff was good customer service.

service was nice. They changed my room from the 14th floor to the 7th because of an extremely loud air handler on the roof. Rooms where very old looking. Breakfast area was packed, not worth waiting for. Parking was horrible.
