“Total surprise--great, clean hotel with amazing free breakfast!”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

This hotel was AWESOME and a total surprise. Right off of 95, it looked like nothing special from the outside. From the minute we walked in, the staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly, asking if we needed anything in the hall and just smiling (so, so nice) every time we passed them. The pool was very small but very clean with great furniture for parents to sit on while watching the kids. The room was great--beds were amazingly comfortable. And CLEAN. But the best part was by the free breakfast. It wasn't your usual free hotel breakfast. It was pancakes, eggs, biscuits, bacon, sausage, good bagels (not the frozen kind), fresh fruit, and WARM whole wheat muffins (one of the best muffins I've ever had). We ate and ate and didn't even need to have lunch. And all of this for $100 for the night. Next time we're in Newark for a hockey tournament, we will absolutely be staying at this Holiday Inn.

We just want to add our commendation for this comfortable, attractive hotel right off the I-95 corridor. Decor of the public areas is excellent, especially the breakfast room with its widely spaced tables and convenient counters for a pretty solid breakfast. Rooms are average size, but nicely furnished. We checked in at a busy time (about 9:00 p.m.) but the process was efficient and the desk staffer friendly. Beds are comfortable, as found in the most luxurious hotels. Everything was spotless, contributing to the brand new feel of this hotel. A very good option for anyone needing a night's rest along the East Coast.

We were traveling from North Carolina to Connecticut and had to stop for the night. This hotel was right off the highway. We checked in around 10 p.m. We needed an extra set of towels and they were delivered right away. The room was very comfortable and CLEAN. Breakfast was as healthy or as decadent as you pleased. Very clean. The hotel associates were all very friendly and helpful - without being asked. I would recommend this hotel in particular to friends. I will definitely try other Holiday Inn Express hotels when we travel. We were very satisfied.

Convenient location right off 95. Front desk very helpful with local directions and check in/check out. I asked for a quiet room and got one. Breakfast is free and plentiful and offers a variety of foods. Free wireless internet access. Pool and exercise room. Large, well lit parking lot -- no safety concerns. The only issue for me was the soft mattress and lumpy pillows -- I noticed several traveles checking in with their own pillows and now I know. I would have given 5 stars but for these qualifications.
