A broken toilet flooded our second floor room, so we were put in a smaller, musty smelling room on the first floor.

This Hotel is located very close to the bus station, and opposite to the zoo. Very well maintained. The breakfast was good, with a variety of vegetarian options. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will visit again.

This is a Best Western and its not meant to be a 5-star hotel so lets keep that in mind.. We loved the location being across from the zoo and reservoir.

The room was clean, the staff was okay with the exception of the front desk attendant when we checked in who was borderline rude, but condition of the bathroom was atrocious, it's at least 10 years over due for a remodel.

This is an older hotel in need of renovation. The room was fairly Spartan with several of the bathroom fixtures coming off the wall. On the up side, our room was very clean and the hotel offered a good breakfast. The beds were comfortable and the towels were nice and soft. The staff were friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced for... More

I was made to wait several minutes to check in despite their being no line and when I was ready to go to bed I moved the sheets aside and there were several ants crawling over the pillows. The fitness center was also nothing more than a treadmill and some light dumbbells.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was great and gave variety. I just wish there was more room to dine. The hotel was across the street & convenient to our trip to the zoo and treetop adventure course.

This partially-renovated hotel has existed in my childhood town up to the present day and has been visited extensively over the years. It is located with easy access to NYC-bound buses, and to venues such as the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo, an ice skating arena complex, and an outdoor adventure interactive park -- all within walking distance of the...
