First I chose this place because we needed a Park 'n Stay rate. From the moment I walked into the small lobby I knew it would be an average stay at best. It was not even average. Old and run down interior and no elevator. Although we did not want anyone above us making noise, because we had a long...

Reviewed 16 January 2017

Why an excellent review of a run of the mill Holiday Inn in New Jersey? It's because the staff had their act together. My wife and I had a connection in Newark on flight from Salt Lake City to Richmond. United decided that because of weather, Newark was as far as they were going to take us so they put...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are old but clean. They have a washer and dryer that take coins. Small rooms but very comfortable beds. Close to Walgreens and McDonalds.

My wife and I needed a place to stay overnight on our way from Boston to Baltimore. We saw that the Holiday Inn had availability, even well after dark (11pm). Thankfully, it was easy access to/from the Turnpike. The rate was excellent. Room-wise, it was sufficient. The hotel is dated in some areas, but for a one-nighter (or even a...

We stayed here because they had shuttles to Newark Airport. However, they wanted us to take a 2 or 3 am shuttle for a 7:30 flight because their shuttle was full. The receptionist didn't want to be bothered to deal with the issue. On the way back, we waited and waited....well, you get the idea. Oh, and the hotel room...

We arrived late, the overnight staff was friendly and effiencient with check in. The room was a reasonable size. The bathrooms were slightly dirty, but still within reason for the level of hotel. We would stay here again, would recommend to friends, but not a client.
