Had a microwave, mini fridge/freezer combo. Full bath tub. There was also a small sitting area for you to relax in. A little sofa, coffee table and desk. It was a really...

I love staying here. I stay quite often for work. Very convenient location. Complimentary shuttle service is a plus. The staff here is very accommodating. Joann is always nice at the front desk and Kim always shares new information about IHG and its benefits and promotions. I love that! We would highly recommend this hotel!

We booked at this hotel because they gave a very good rate for a stay and park reservation. After a long day of traveling we returned, got our luggage and tried to call the number that the Holiday Inn provided on their card. After numerous tries over a 30 min time period we gave up and got in line for...

I stay here often and great. The people are fine and caring and take very good care of you. Great breakfast. I stay in the same room and it's very comfortable. It's close to New York they will take you to the bus stop and also kick you up a bus stop on your return.

Was there last week for one night (only a few hours) because United cancelled my flight to Montreal. The driver of the Hotel Shuttle Jimmy was very nice, friendly and helpful and the girl on the Reception Desk LaLa was also very nice and did the best they could for me. The Room was very good and clean

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 were put up at this hotel courtesy of our airline after their 3 hour delay caused us to miss our connecting flight. The hotel was just average Holiday Inn, but the staff were fantastic in their handling of 15 weary and frustrated travellers late in the evening.

Our room was clean and recently redecorated. The fact that the hotel offers free parking for up to ten days and has a shuttle to Newark Airport sold us on the deal.
