    I was traveling alone and the price tag pulled me in. I saved money over the next option so I can't complain. This was my goal. If my wife would have been with me I would have stayed elsewhere. The rooms were ok. Any solo man who does not wear $1500 suits should survive just fine here. Prima donnas and captains of the universe look elsewhere...

    I would recommend this hotel to someone who isn't put off by an average place. This hotel is also under one of EWRs flight paths, but so are other hotels around ewr which charge 5 times as much! Also, I had to call the hotel from the airport upon arrival at ewr. I was placed on hold for several minutes and I was very tired. I had to call back three times to understand where I could catch my hotel shuttle. The hotel is staffed by Indians (from India, who were pleasant, but hard to understand). Also, at the desk, the usual happened. Desk clerks at hotels nowadays will answer a telephone while they are helping people check in. I consider this to be one of the rudest things that one can confront in the hospitality business. It's my pet peeve.

    There was the nicest woman at the front desk named Monica. She was wonderful to us. I liked the fact that there was a restaurant .

    The owners lived in a suite on my floor and they cooked. The entire floor had the overwhelming, nausating smell of curry. Always. It wasn't as bad in the rooms. The manager didn't want to work with me on the fact that we had to come in one day late because of the volcano eruption in Europe and I requested that he wave the first night we missed. I emailed him from Rome but he initially didn't want to wave it. He finally relented and waived the first night. To use the internet (there were 2 stations) you had to feed the machine a dollar for every 5 minutes. Ridiculous. The restaurant was average to below average although the staff was very nice.

    The staff is nice and kind. This is my first time travel in NY and they kindly answered all my questions.

    Altought I booked the room from internet, the room wasnt prepared until I checked in when I arrived the hotel. And it also took almost 15 mins to get this room ready for me to move in. Kind of weird and not efficient.

  • Single

    The staffs in the front desk are helpful for getting information.

    The none-smoking room I booked is smelled.

    It was an average experience, but last night (5/16) I stayed at a Best Western in Albany ny and the value for the money was not there. I am traveling alone now, my wife is not with me, I am ex-military and pretty tough and not so sensitive, but I do like the price/value relationship at the ewr Howard Johnson. I do not stay in my room. I get out there all day long, so this is good value for someone like me, a senior, retired, military person. One thing I do not like at any hotel and that is when the desk clerk answers the phone when youare right in front of him ready to spend your money. This practise must simply go away! It is rude and unbusinesslike.

    See above. I would recommend this hotel based on price/value above all else. I have not read others' reviews.

    Sticky floors, sheets did not stay on, extra charge for a car.

    nothing, I was very disapointed

    it offers itself much better on the internet than reality shows

    Room was clean and reasonably big. Very good price.

    Each time had to wait for shuttle bus for 20-30 minutes. Hotel does not sell even beer. There is no bar.

  • Older travelers

    i took what was close to where i need to be

    First of all i ordered a 2 queen bed smoking room on the internet and when i got there i was put in a 2 queen bed non smoking room so i went back to the front desk and told the man and he then put me on the first floor in a 2 bed smoking room and the toilet was leaking all over the bathroom floor and it smelled like urine extremely bad so i went back to the front desk to ask for a different room and he said ma'am come on... and stuck me back in my 2 bed non smoking room rather then taking care of the customer i paid 80.00 for a room i did not get and had to smoke outside..

    I liked the proximity to the airport and shopping centre. Also the price is right for that type of hotel.

    Everything was good

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    the room was smelling really disgusting and the staff were unfriendly

  • Couple
    7.0

    The stay was pleasant but the hotel is rather old-is, but I'd strongly recomed it for travelers going thru newark airport like us.
