First, you have to drive through a shady section of town to even get to the hotel... we arrived late, and it's around the corner from what seems like a rough area. Seond, the entire hotel smelled.... funny. I can't explain the smell, it was really unpleasant. Third, one of the rooms we rented smelled like smoke, and when we... More

This hotel was about 15-20 minutes from the airport. They have a free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes. I flew in at 9 pm and had a 6 am flight the next day, so this was a short stay. We passed quite a few hotels on the way this hotel and it seemed a little off the beaten path.... More

I was stranded at the airport and the employees at Howard Johnson were great at getting me a room allowing me to check in early after spending a night sleeping in the airport. I was upgraded at no charge. Great stay a shuttle is included free WiFi.

I have never stayed in a hotel or motel that I felt concerned for my health. There was mold in the bathroom; on the ceiling and around the basin. There was peeling paint around the base of the walls and around the doors. The microwave looked like it had never been cleaned. The patch work on the ceiling was poorly... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the airport and the low cost, we just needed 1 night to recover from our flight from Japan. The rating would be a 2 or a 1 (vice the 3 I gave it) if the cost was higher than the $58 that we paid. The building is just old. The tub... More

The price was competitive, the internet connection was good. Service to and from the Newark airport was reliable. But the room had a damp smell as though some thing was wet somewhere. But I did not find anything wet anywhere.
