“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I had to be in the area on business. This was my first visit to the Newton-Sparta area and I was planning on staying in the Dover area 15 miles away. I spoke with someone I know who lives here and he recommended the Holiday Inn Express instead. I was glad that he did. The hotel is very well kept. The staff are friendly and very helpful when it comes to recommendations for local restaurants. They even have a list of restaurants that will discount your meal 10% by showing your card key.

The rooms are spacious. Traveling for business as I do, I find it difficult being able to sleep thru the night because of mattresses. Not here. This is the first time I have been able to get uninterrupted sleep on the road in a very long time. I even requested the make and model of mattress.

The only drawback is the quality of the breakfast. It's edible. If you're not in a rush, try the Hampton Diner down the road. It's good food ad reasonably priced.

Dear Bruce L,
We would like to thank you for your great review.The entire staff was happy to hear that we have succeeded in making your trip a memorable experience. We have told many guests where to purchase the mattress and are glad you are one of them. I hope you were able to try our pancake machine during your breakfast. We do try to have a variety of foods for our guests. Please thank your friend for sending you to our hotel. We hope to see again soon.

Chose this hotel because of its location near our family Thanksgiving. It's just basic everything—bed is okay, breakfast is okay, conveniences (toiletries, coffee) in the room are okay. It seemed expensive for basic, but perhaps that was because of the holiday. Service was great--people at the desk and in the breakfast room could not have been nicer.

In smaller towns often Holiday Inn Express Hotels are one of the few choices to select from and they are usually the newest and nicest of the bunch, the Newton one was the best choice. The limited staff were all friendly and helpful and the room was large, well appointed for a hotel in this price category and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone need an accommodation in the Newton area.

This is a reliable clean hotel close to shopping and amenities. No surprises for a HI Express.

The thing that makes this place very good is the upper level management that really cares about your experience.

I was here for 2 days giving a seminar. The meeting room was great and again the senior management made sure everyone was happy. They even made warm fresh cookies for us.

If I was planning on being in the area again I would stay here.

Excellent hotel we couldn't stay at our usual hotel because it was full this was our second choice but we were pleasantly surprised it was very nice , very clean and the free breakfast was an added perk. The area was hosting a lot of weddings and we got the last room which was a suite which also turned out to be a great surprise the extra space was great there was a sitting area and a Jacuzzi tub. The staff was very nice and helpful we took the grand kids apple picking at a nearby farm and had a great time.

Room Tip: The little extra for a suite is well worth it

We just returned from a wedding in NJ and stayed at this hotel. The staff at the front desk were very friendly. We were so happy to get into our room early to change clothes before the wedding. We had a two queen room. It was very clean. Loved the fact there was a small refrigerator in the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

We are "frequent stayers" at Hampton, Marriott.....a 58th high school reunion in the area necessitated our Holiday Inn stay...a lovely building..lobby had the feel of an expensive, city hotel..rooms were very clean, well decorated, offered frig/micro, breakfast area was separate and had the feel of a restaurant...breakfast was very satisfying, nicely offered, food was constantly replenished...the staff was friendly, welcoming and the cookies, fruits, candy, water were available throughout the day.....really enjoyed our stay...Applebees, Kohls, HomeDepot and other stores within walking distance.

Room Tip: we stayed on the first floor and enjoyed being so close to the workout room, business office, lobby...
