I thought I was the pickiest traveler around -- whoever is writing most of these reviews has me beat by a long shot. This hotel is just fine. If you want "Hilton" ammenities, then pay the price and stay at the Hilton. The hotel was older, smoking rooms did smell like smoke but that's why they're smoking rooms. Ours was clean, a/c worked fine, bathroom was clean and roomy. Spotless when we got there, obviously not as much attention to detail during our use of the room, but ammenities restocked, trash out, beds made and vacuumed. Staff was not overly friendly or outgoing but they were not rude. Some complain of airport noise, we never heard a thing on the first floor. I could see how it would be hard to find if you were driving, but we did not. Shuttle could have been a little speedier to and from the hotel, but no big deal and it was free. We feel we got our money's worth -- it was clean and comfortable. FYI to ones staying in Newark and traveling to Manhattan to sightsee --- free shuttle to airport, bus to Penn Station, PATH to Manhattan. It's takes a minute to figure out, but smooth after that and saves a lot of $$. Feel free to email me, I have all the bus/train numbers and ticket cost and info.
