This was a very good stay in New Jersey. I guess on the weekends it is better to get a room because it is cheaper in this city. So the normally $160.00 room, we got for around $105 with taxes included. The hotel was nice. It was like a mini apartment. All of the rooms are suites, but I think they have studio suites, and suites with different rooms in them. We stayed in a studio suite which was nice. We got one room, and had to switch to a different room because we did find nasty hairs in the mattress, and on the sheets. The lady working on the night shift was nice and called to make sure our room was okay. The second one was. I also liked that the shampoos they give you, and soaps are neutrogena and not the cheap stuff a lot of hotels offer. The beds were extremely comfortable, and were spacious. It wasn't a king room, and instead had a queen mattress which turned out to an extra 10.00 if we wanted a king bed. So the beds were a little smaller, but an upgrade is available for an extra fee. Then there was an excercise room there with really nice equipment. It had two treadmills, and some free weights, and another eliptical. The television didn't have many channels on it though. Also the rooms advertise that they offer paperview movies, but in our room we couldn't access it. They said they would give us a new room if we wanted one, but we didn't want to move. They promised they would have it fixed the following day, and when I got done working out they didn't have it fixed yet so the front door guy gave us some free stuff from the 24 hour store. They also let us swim in the pool and hot tub past 10pm which is the normal time it closes. The toilet did break and nobody came to fix it.
They have a business center which was opened 24 hours.
The following day though they gave us a late check out, and a wake up call at 1230, the girl at the front desk still called and said, "You know check out is at 12pm" and I told her we got a late check out and then she said that it was based on approval, and if she wanted to charge an extra fee she could. But she said she wasn't going too. I got the feeling she had an over inflated ego, as a hotel clerk. To make matters worse although I had paid on a debit card the second day, they said my debit card had been declined. I only owed 2.00 so I knew that something was wrong. When I looked at the bill she had put an extra 50.00 charge on my bill, and I called and told her that something was wrong. She said well next time you need to be aware the rooms go up on the weekdays. Well for as long as I can recall Sunday is a weekend day not a weekday. She did adjust the bill, but still I didn't like her attitude, and I wasn't happy that she tried to charge me an extra 50.00, and had I put money on my card she would have charged the card and I may not have been made aware of it. So at this hotel I would most definitely watch my bill to be sure nobody was putting an extra dollar amount on it. Also there was a lot of kids at the hotel running up and down the hotel halls. The hotel is a pet friendly hotel w an extra fee attached to it.
