“Newer clean hotel with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

In smaller towns often Holiday Inn Express Hotels are one of the few choices to select from and they are usually the newest and nicest of the bunch, the Newton one was the best choice. The limited staff were all friendly and helpful and the room was large, well appointed for a hotel in this price category and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone need an accommodation in the Newton area.

This is a reliable clean hotel close to shopping and amenities. No surprises for a HI Express.

The thing that makes this place very good is the upper level management that really cares about your experience.

I was here for 2 days giving a seminar. The meeting room was great and again the senior management made sure everyone was happy. They even made warm fresh cookies for us.

If I was planning on being in the area again I would stay here.

Excellent hotel we couldn't stay at our usual hotel because it was full this was our second choice but we were pleasantly surprised it was very nice , very clean and the free breakfast was an added perk. The area was hosting a lot of weddings and we got the last room which was a suite which also turned out to be a great surprise the extra space was great there was a sitting area and a Jacuzzi tub. The staff was very nice and helpful we took the grand kids apple picking at a nearby farm and had a great time.

Room Tip: The little extra for a suite is well worth it

We just returned from a wedding in NJ and stayed at this hotel. The staff at the front desk were very friendly. We were so happy to get into our room early to change clothes before the wedding. We had a two queen room. It was very clean. Loved the fact there was a small refrigerator in the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

We are "frequent stayers" at Hampton, Marriott.....a 58th high school reunion in the area necessitated our Holiday Inn stay...a lovely building..lobby had the feel of an expensive, city hotel..rooms were very clean, well decorated, offered frig/micro, breakfast area was separate and had the feel of a restaurant...breakfast was very satisfying, nicely offered, food was constantly replenished...the staff was friendly, welcoming and the cookies, fruits, candy, water were available throughout the day.....really enjoyed our stay...Applebees, Kohls, HomeDepot and other stores within walking distance.

Room Tip: we stayed on the first floor and enjoyed being so close to the workout room, business office, lobby...

We've never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before - if the Newtown hotel is typical of the chain, it's a nice place to stay. The front desk was welcoming, the complimentary chocolate chip cookies in the lobby were a nice touch, as was the coffee that is available 24/7. The hotel has free wifi, which is always appreciated (and should be the norm at this point).

The large room was clean and comfortable. There was a microwave, small refrigerator and coffeemaker in the room. The bed was a bit higher than usual - but fine for us. The pillows were interesting - they had a discreet "firm" and "soft" stitched on them, so you could choose the type you prefer.

Breakfast is complimentary until 10am, but we didn't have breakfast so we cannot comment on it.

Holiday Inn Express' do not have restaurants, but there is an Applebee's a two minute walk from the hotel entrance, and several places to eat within a five minute drive.

Most of the guests staying overnight were there to visit the NJ State Fair.

A solid 3 star hotel in the traditional rating scheme.

I was having to drive around looking for a hotel as the I80 corrider was sold out. Someone suggested Newton had a Holiday Express. I called and there was only a couple of rooms available so i booked a suite as the alternative was a handicap room. Just as I leave a space designated handicap for the handicapped, I do thye same at hotels.
The property isn't in a very nice location, but hey, I wasn't there for the scenery.
The room was nice, the staff was friendly and knowlegable and right across the parking ,ot was a neighborhood Applebees. So food, drink, local entertainment, and of course a restfull nights sleep.
Hey, even the pillows were good.
It doesn't get much better than that folks.
BTW
It is the gateway to the best hiking trails Jersey has to offer and its very pretty to drive around lost, so to speak.

Great entertainment locally in Newton. All the B list, ex A list people play in town. I saw Lyle Lovett playing there that night.
