Wow, words can not do this place justice. Just stay away, rooms are unclean, have mold, and just a very dank place. The Courtyard by Marriott is just a few miles down Route 3, take your money there.

I only just found this website and decided to look up the worst hotel I had ever stayed in to see what comments people had written. I found I agreed with the majority of negative comments that it really is a truly dreadful place to stay. I had the misfortune of staying there for three nights and there were holes in everything.
Its saving grace is the staff who were nice and friendly, why are they working there?

Take my advice and do not stay here!! The first room, the heat did not work so I was moved to a second room. I had to stay in this dreadful place 2 nights. All night long the heater went on and off every 10 minutes. Could not get any sleep it was so loud. There was someone else's hair all over the bathroom. The wallpaper was peeling. VERY VERY bad. A couple times I tried to call the front desk and no one came out. Finally I went downstairs and had to call into the back for a person to come out. Horrendous!!!!

Me & 5 of my friends stayed here the night of my bachelorette party. First of all, they did not get my reservation right but that is completely irrelevant to this review. The rooms were terrible. The rugs were SOAKING WET, the toilet ran the whole night, and it smelled like mold & you could see mold all on the ceiling. All the rooms we went in (as they were trying to get my reservation right) stunk. I will say the guy at the front desk was nice & accommodating. Luckily, we only used the room to sleep and nothing more. If I wasnt intoxicated I would have slept somewhere else. Its cheap, but spend 20 bucks more and stay somewhere better.

I just recently found this website, so that would be the delay in posting something. I went to this location In July, when I was going to a Springsteen concert. Just where do I begin? We had arrived late, so when we got there we were checked in quickly. Once we got to our room....205 will be in my mind forever. I turned on the tap to brush my teeth when brown water came out of the tap. So I decided to watch some tv, but wait ours didn't work. NO problem I'll go to bed and turn on the a/c but once again that didn't work (keep in mind this is July), okay so now what can't open the patio, judging by all the locks on the patio and main door, it was not the best neighbourhood. Well made it through the night, got up to have a shower when my mom, noticed a hole in the cieling above the shower. Fine jsut don;t look up. Went to voice my complaints to the Front desk, when I got someone will check into it.
Returned home late after spening the day in NYC, and nothing was working still!!! Was too late to look elsewhere so we just stayed...defineatly not satisfied and told everyone of out horrible experience when we got home. And still talk about it, how everything could be wrong with one room!!

Stayed at the HoJo in Clifton. The hotel is small, and very quiet considering the noise and traffic on Route 3. Even though I was only passing through and staying one night, I was pleased to find that all the rooms have balconies. Even in- room coffee tastes better when you're sitting on a balcony reading the local morning paper! I-Hop restaurant next door was handy for breakfast.
