Nice place to stay between Newark and Philadelphia

We (family of 2 adults and 2 kids) are due to arrive around 10 o'clock at night in August into Newark and need to be at Philadelphia Airport the following day at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Rather than stay in an airport hotel, can anyone advise me of a nice place to stay between Newark and Philadelphia?

Thank you in advance for any help.

There really isn't anything of note between Newark and Philadelphia that would provide a reason for staying there. The driving distance is less than 2 hours. If you want to do a little sightseeing in the morning before your flight, your best bet would be to stay in a hotel in the historic (old city) are of Philadelphia.

How are you planning to get from Newark to Philadelphia?

Not quite sure what you are interested in, but Princeton, NJ would make a nice stop. It is a pretty place and The university campus is lovely for strolling and even has a very nice Art Museum. There are a couple hotels right in town, but also some chains on the outskirts.

It sounds like you are arriving one day then picking someone up the next? I would just drive to wherever you were planning to stay in Philly anyway (you'll be in your hotel by 1 AM) and then either hop out to the airport or have that person take a short cab ride to meet you in the city.
