I stayed there twice in a two week period as I was arriving late to Newark and heading out early the next morning. Their free shuttle and proximity to the airport was the best thing about this place. It's less than 10 minutes to and from the location for pickup/drop off for hotel shuttles. Otherwise, the hotel isn't located by...

"Oh damn!! The camera battery and the charger are in the room". We were living through any travellers nightmare of forgetting things behind in the hotel room. All excited about reaching NYC early, we forgot the camera battery and the charger behind. When we called the hotel, the gentleman at the reception was kind enough to arrange for my items...

We missed our flights so this was the bottom of the barrel at midnight. ...It was grubby ,tired and grim.....you'd only stay here in desperation. The lovely Mexican waiter in the cafe was the one feint glimmer - just hope I he doesn't get on the wrong side of Mr Trump because he was lovely.

My stay didn't start off on a good note. Howard Johnson could place better signage to find your way to the parking lot. You have to go through a part of an airport parking service before you get to the hotel, and the signs aren't clear. When I walked into the lobby to check in, there were 2 staff members,...

I was looking over the accommodations prior to making the reservations. The ratings were average to good and the pictures looked like typical living arrangements, nothing over-the-top or too dingy. I had heard great things from friends about Wyndham hotels which was a contributing factor to going with Howard Johnson. I was happy they offered a free shuttle to and...

I booked a room at the Howard Johnson at Newark Airport through the national reservation center. They did not tell me about the 15 dollar parking fee that I had to pay. The rates are reasonable but once the 15 dollars is added on the total, it's not as great of a deal. The front desk told me every hotel...

The power outlet next to the desk was broken. The bottom plug was broke in half with the metal prong inside te socket exposed. If I had a kid with me, I would not have stayed in the room. Also, the bathroom ceiling was disgusting. Stained and rusted from excessive water damage.

This hotel has great customer service and a restaurant with excellent food. I had a room with new carpeting and a comfortable bed. Room very clean and housekeeping always available. I have stayed here several times. The rates are much less than staying in New York City. Maged Hanna has a van service from the hotel into New York City...

although the shuttle service driver was nice/helpful as was the front desk staff, the room was not what I had hoped. Ended up with tons of bedbug bites the next morning! Didn't have time to report the bedbug problem
