I booked a room 6 weeks prior to a wedding as part of a block of rooms. I confirmed the night before and everything was set, or so I thought. After the ceremony we went to the hotel to get ready for the reception. We were told they were oversold and we couldn't stay there even though we had a confirmation!!!!

They offered to put us in a hotel that would have taken 40 minutes to get to on a Friday night about 12 miles away. There was a shuttle bus taking guests to/from the hotel and reception, so we would have no way of getting to the other hotel. This happened to about 30 guests! My girlfriend had to drink diet coke and coffee so she could drive us home after the reception, since the the other hotel is further were weren't going to stay at the other hotel. When the shuttle dropped us off, we hung out in a room for a brief time and were not impressed. The hotel had a mildew smell and dirty halls. Also, seven guests were stuck in an elevator for 40 minutes.

I would NEVER recommend this hotel and for anyone that has a special event planned I would re-book elsewhere as the staff didn't seem to mind that they were at fault.

After booking a pre-pay/no cancellation 3-night stay, one month in advance - we were assigned to a room as far from the front of the hotel as possible.

The ceiling had suffered damage and was peeling. The enamel on the bathtub edges was gone. The toilet "ran" after flushing and although this was reported, it was never fixed. The hem on the sheers behind the black-out curtains was ripped out and hanging over the heater vents. The remote was not working. The switch on the bedside lamps was broken - you just turned and turned and hoped it would work. The lamp on the desk wobbled and fell over if you moved the chair!

The location is okay for transportation to NYC - about 1/2 mile walk, sometimes on the highway. The restaurant (Red Robin) was good! Breakfast was okay -- waffles, toast/bagels, apples/very very very ripe bananas, cereal, juice and coffee. No skim milk available.

It was an easy walk to Clifton Commons outdoor mall which has 2 restaurants, a Target, grocery store and assorted other stores.

The staff was always pleasant.

Free USA today during the week and Star-Ledger on Sunday (great coupons.)

We paid $89 plus tax - I told the manager it was maybe workth $59.

Just stayed at this hotel. Close to Roche and not far from NYC and Newark. Nice refurbished rooms and good breakfast buffet. Not much in area, service is good. If near Roche stay here.
