This is an old hotel with an ugly exterior and an updated interior. The owners spent some money, but I'd characterize it as "updates on a budget".
Our first room had a sofa bed with so many springs missing that the mattress literally fell through to the floor when my son sat on it. The staff moved us promptly when we contacted them.
The second room (where they moved us) had a thermostat that didn't quite work. After repacking our stuff, and moving it to the new room, we didn't bother complaining a second time.
There are a lot of smokers here, and I believe all rooms were smoking at one point. The lobby bar was a cloud of cigarette smoke, and was playing 80's rock music WAY too loud.
They advertise having a "casino". Note: in this part of the country "casino" means ONLY slot machines. No table games. And the casino is a short drive across the parking lot and up the hill, not connected to the hotel.
The Holiday Inn Meadowlands is an adequately updated, old hotel with old mechanicals. At best, it is acceptable for a 1 night stay if you're driving through.
The staff at check in wasn't particularly friendly. Neither was the staff when we checked out.
All of that said, the rooms and common spaces are decently updated, the beds were comfortable enough, and the staff was helpful enough. We had a decent night of sleep.
