I was a bit disappointed the room was dated & didn't feel "fresh". The shower never shut all the way off so we got to hear that all night and the walls are very thin so every door that shut was audible. Our room was right next to the pool exit so it was loud. We were told by the...

The hotel, is a very good one. The structure is dated but well kept. The restaurant has a great staff. The girls go beyond the call of duty to accommodate the guests needs. Service is overall good in the hotel, but excellent in the restaurant! I will recommend eating here, even if you don't stay in the hotel. Hiram Diaz...

The Holiday Inn Carteret - Rahway is right off the turnpike at exit 12. It is a nice, clean, quiet hotel. We stayed on the second floor facing the pool. The pool was open until 10:00 pm, but we couldn't hear anyone down there. One negative was the lack of an elevator.

It was a short visit due to canceled flight. Really nice people working there. They kept the kitchen open to feed me and the burger was really good. Gave me a free coffee to go in the morning. There was nothing fancy about the place but it was clean and good folks working there.

If your room is on the second floor plan on hauling all your suite cases up one flight. NO ELEVATOR. This was the biggest draw back to this location. They had a small shallow pool 3 -4 1/2 ft range, places to BBQ your own food. Just off the NJ turnpike exit 12. Rooms were clean and in good condition....

Stayed 1 night on a business trip. The hotel does not stand to the usual Holiday Inn standards. The room is large and clean but the hallways should be renovated. Breakfast is not included, which you expect in a location like this one
