“Best appliances ever”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Stayed here on the second night of a business trip. I was very impressed with their quality of electronic appliances in the room. These appliances were of such high quality and esteemed value that they were bolted to the wall to prevent guests from stealing them. The brands were from such exotic places as a small, family business that makes hand crafted hair dryers under the name Sunbeam. The coffee machine was hand delivered from the beach by way of fine coffee purveyors, the Hamilton family. And finally, the alarm clock. Ahh yes the alarm clock. It was the crown jewel of the collection of alarms from the GE line of fine timepieces. All bolted to the wall. I was discouraged that I could not take one home. I will post a picture.

The stay was OK. Place was quiet during the week. Clean room. OK location for what we needed.

I had supper on March 10th at the bar in Totowa New Jersey. I ordered the pork chops. My server was Joey. I had come to know Joey by my visits to NJ on business. A great hotel with a reasonable price but more than that a great meal. Important. I don't think the meal, the service, and the attention would have been as good without Joey there. Pass it on.....stay at the Holiday Inn but also consider eating a meal there.

Room Tip: Great hotel, great price, great service, great food

Horrible stay after a wedding in NJ. Next door room had excessive music at 1:30am, called front desk repeatedly every 10 min. to complain over an hour, my son and I never slept. No manager to get a hold of. No one assisted us. At 2:30am, it was too late to search for another hotel off US 46 highway. At 10am the next morning, front desk clerk hadn't heard of incident, was only capable of refunding us half the room rate. Left several messages for General Manager to call us, still waiting since Feb. 17, 2013. I stated that years ago, I was the Secretary to a General Manager of a Holiday Inn and am extremely shocked of what we had to endure.

Room Tip: Do not book a room at this hotel.

Mt wife and I along with about two dozen family members stayed here for our nephews wedding on Friday Feb. 8th. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and very pleasant. Not even a major blizzard could make this stay a bad one. The only thing that could have been better organized were the rides from the hotel to the Tides Estate catering facility during the storm. One van was not enough. At least 3 trips were made for our group alone.

Breakfast was good but definitely not worth the $11.95 per person charge.

Dear Pparrothead,

Thank you for selecting the Holiday Inn, Totowa New Jersey for your recent stay. We are truly delighted to hear that you were happy with our hotel's accommodations. We also would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience during the blizzard we recently experienced. With most of the transportation during the blizzard being offline due to the risky driving conditions, we decided to continue our hotel shuttle service to accommodate and uphold our promise of running the shuttle for the guests attending events in the area. We definitely value and appreciate your input, and we will most certainly take this into consideration for the future . You are a valued guest, and we definitely look forward to your future stays with us.

Sincerely,
Amira M.

My bride and I stayed here while visiting New Jersey. Fortunately we had a quiet room, very clean, with great a/c. Young woman on the front desk (Latoya) provided absolutely excellent customer service. I am hearing impaired and needed assistance in scheduling our next stop. Latoya cheerfully and efficiently assisted (I was unable to get assistance at other Holiday Inns). It is obvious she enjoys her job and hones her skill at every opportunity.

This is a older classic Holiday Inn. It is adjacent to US46. Rooms on the east and south have significant road noise. If you want a quiet room, stay on the west and north facing rooms.

The staff is friendly. They handle special request just fine. I ate at the buffet once, it is acceptable, but nothing special.

The rooms are comfortable and modern enough. Everything works and the TV are all flat screens. Wifi works well.

The place on the weekend had many “weekend getaway” customers. If you are getting away, then you will find similarly noisy neighbors, which might be good when you are making noise yourself. If you are a quiet person, you might ask at the desk to be separated from these revelers.

For business travelers I would say try the Crowne Plaza just a mile away. Its about $30-50 more a night, but the restaurant is good and has a more business attitude.

Room Tip: Pick a north or west facing room to shield from road noise.
