Decided to get a room at this hotel because I knew that I was going to be flying in really late to Newark International and just wanted a room to get about 5-6 hours of sleep before having to leave to attend a function. Got into the hotel at a little later than 12:30AM and was happy to see the hotel looking good from the outside, a nice lobby, and very courteous staff checking me in. So far I was thinking that everything was going to be great and that you don't always 'get what you paid for'. Get up to floor, everything was fine. Get to room, open door, look in...... Nice room. Nice big bed and was one of the SleepNumber beds. Nice touch. Prior person must have liked it taught since it was very hard. Control didn't work. Display and buttons did nothing. Ok no problem, I was tired and was going to be there but a few hours. So lay down and then notice a huge crack in the ceiling. Not falling on me so I fell asleep under the covers, sheet, etc.
Later that morning, I shower and go downstairs for the breakfast offering. To my surprise it wasn't just cereal and cold food. It was a very nice setup including meats, warm foods, juices, etc. very nice.
I check out.
Later in the day while driving to my second stop, I notice several bug bites on my forearm. Hmmmm. Mosquitoes hate me so, that's not it. Disregard. Later I get to a relatives house and I am changing to go to gym. Take off shirt and notice several more bites on abdomen. Well, the only time I was without shirt was when I was in bed earlier. Darn it, something may have been in there with me. Mind you, I state MAYBE, because I am not sure.
Anyway, long story short.... Good hotel for the money, just check your bed to be safe.
