“Good for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

My family and I stayed here this past weekend. The hotel is in a nice area, close to stores and restaurants. The staff was very nice and we had no issues checking in or out. The rooms were clean and presentable, and were equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave and other essentials. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable, so bring your own pillows if you want to be able to get some sleep. The breakfast was quick and good. Although there is only one waffle maker so go down early. New York is only a 40 minute drive away and its easy and fast to travel back and forth. All in all my family and I had a good experience here and would definitely stay again.

Just got back from visiting Parsippany NJ, and stayed at the Howard Johnsons, The room was clean, fridge, microwave, coffee pot with coffee and tea, Continental breakfast, the price was right, the only bad part was they have the worst bed I have ever slept on, but for the price and the convenience of being just about an hours drive from new york, I would stay there again.

*****WARNING****** Do not and I repeat "DO NOT" stay at this hotel, the first room smelled like B.O. and there was mold along the bathroom tub. Then she offered us to check a 2nd room and that one was worst then the 1st. absolutely disgusting. Then they didn't want to give me my money back, until she knew I was not going away or leaving until I get my money for the room. She was concerned about getting in trouble for giving me my money back and not the rooms being smelly and filthy. Serious, if you don't believe anything, believe what i'm telling you about this hotel, stay else where.

Cleaning staff destroyed personal property left in the room, hotel staff and management assumed no responsibility for the damage. Complaining to the main franchise office proves useless as they put the responsibility back onto the individual franchise branch who were useless in the first place.

High School students allowed to throw Raging Keg party. Took 4 calls to main office to get them to break it up, noise and ruckus on hall/balcony room entrances unbearable between 11pm and 4am until cops came.

As a long haul truck driver I visit many an economy motel, in compasirion to the others of its kind, it rates pretty well in my book. I have stayed at this property 3 times in two diffrent rooms. My room on the first floor had a loud air conditioner, otherwise no problems. Both rooms were clean and everything was in working order. Fridge and microwave are a plus. Fair selection of TV channels as well. Breakfast is varied and well stocked. Free WiFi would bog down occasionally but the front desk staff was always quick to reset the network and get it rwaring again (Ask for a room near the ends of the building if you want to use the WiFi, this is where the antennas are located) The laundry facilties were fair priced. In a very good location, right were 80 and 46 meet. Also a safe area with a pretty constant police preseance due the the highway nearby. I would stay again. If you want more luxuary there are plenty of other hotels in Parsippany along this strip of highway. TIP: Book through there website for the cheapest rate!

rooms are ok..but not worth the 70 bucks..internet is ok but slows down when lots on it..anyways to my point watch your charge cards closely as they tend to do unauthorized preapprovals on it...example i paid for a week stay and sign the receipt for 525.00 in the morning..when i got back to room i checked my account and had not only the 1 charge but 3 other preapprovals on it..when i asked them they said sorry a mistake so i had to wait for it to fall off...so when it did i left..then i made sure when i checked out i owed 345.00 and watched as the clerk entered it and gave me a receipt for paid in full..they the next day at another hotel i noticed an additional 111.00 preapproved without consent on my card from them so stay at your own risk

  • Liked — was quiet
  • Disliked — unauthorized preapprovals on my credit card
