Please do yourself a favor and do NOT go anywhere near this place, especially if you’re a woman traveling alone. I wound up being stuck at the Newark airport all night, so I thought I’d book a room at a nearby hotel to try to...More

This hotel is located in a very dangerous place. Time to time you can hear the people shooting on the street, the police is every 3 minutes up and down. You can not walk in the neighbourhood. There were fights on the corridors of the...More

You are absolutely right. No decent person should sleep at this hotel. It's very horrible. I didn't even sleep there the night I booked and paid for it online. Lots of crack heads, homeless and crazy people lodging there. I... More

i have no idea as I went to New Jersey airport from this hotel. I would NOT recommend to stay in such hotel anyway as it is rip-off (expensive for no reason). Uber would not even come there to pick me up.
