This hotel takes away from the feel of HJ hotels I have visited previously. This HJ does not offer continental breakfast the rooms are said to be renovated and they don't appear to be, and also the rates differ from those advertised on the advertisement located outside of the building. The employees are courteous however they appear to be residence... More

This is a good option for an overnight stay at Newark Liberty Airport. It was the least expensive motel available and yielded excellent value for money. The room was clean and comfortable, with free WiFi and a TV with many, many channels. There's a free shuttle to the airport bterminal for those who don't have a car and a large... More

Poor sleeping accommodations at best. I'm glad I was only there for 6 hours. The sink pipe was leaking underneath hitting my feet and legs as the water was turned in...nasty. The carpet and walk behind the night stand was filthy. I had to plug up my phone and did it as steady as I could so I wouldn't touch... More

I stayed at this hotel and booked for a room just a few nights before I was due to arrive. Comparing to any other properties around the neighbourhood, this hotel came up as the cheapest one and the distance to Newark Airport is considerably near (however, walking seems to be out of option). They provide the customers with complimentary shuttle... More

This was a great option at the Newark Airport and the staff at every level, general comfort, internet and nice small restaurant with great food were all top notch and far in excess of what is normally available at that price class. What needs improvement is the King bed. Ours was much too hard for a good night's sleep.

A fine park-to-fly site. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and the entire process is smooth.

We flew into New Jersey for onward travel the next day. This seemed convenient. And it was. They have a small restaurent with unblievably good food and the staff alla round were very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable and we had a very restful night. Throughly reccomended.

Horrible, horrible staff!!! We didn't get a single 'Good morning' from anyone the whole time my family and i were there. Neither a single smile; even the kids noticed the cold atmosphere. Really, it was an unusual experience. Everything that represents what hotels are & stand for, we didn't find it there! I would for sure never go back there... More
