    The rooms were remodeled and designed to a pretty high standard, there is coffee, microwave, fridge and a giant tv, something you would never expect looking at the hotel outside. The staff seems to earnestly put effort into living up to franchise standards

    Breakfast is next to non-existent -- and even the undrinkable coffee runs out, while there is virtually nothing else. The location is very good if you need to be locally in Union/Somerset counties, New Jersey, and if you travel by car, but it is not something to consider if you need New York City or use public transport. The whole hotel is now (Sept 2011) underdoing the extensive refurbishment on the outside, which results in construction traffic in the parking lot and untidy construction workers swearing loudly in Russian all over the place (even less comfortable if you speak it, like I do), occasionally landing on your balcony

    Comfortable..nice size tv, refrigerator and microwave - great when we did not want to go out.

    Lack of towels and bathroom accessories in the room at check-in

  • Group of friends

    Nothing really. It has horrible customer service. I left a pair of shorts there and called them and they hung up on me. We booked the 3 nights originally but checked out the next morning. They said they would give us a discount but didn't and where rude about it. Has bad smells throughout the hotel. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

    Nothing. The facilities had an open window with out window frame. Our towels were all dirty. Out key was deactivated every single time we had to go into the room, and it was never even placed closed to cellphones or anything magnetic.

    The remolded rooms were amazing. The bed was big and comfortable and the big screen tv was great. When we first pulled up to the hotel we were beginning to wonder if we should turn around and find something different because the outside was all turn up. When we got to the room we could see that that the place was getting a complete overhaul from the inside out.

    The really only negative was the lack of water pressure in the shower. Not sure if that is something that is affected by the remolding going on or if its in the plans as the remodel continues but the water pressure in the shower was a little low.

    it was close to Murray Hill, was quite cheap. I chose it mainly for location and due to the fact it also had breakfast included. Room was clean with 2 beds inside, even if i was alone it could fit 4 people inside. Internet access was really fast

    Hotel had some renovations outside but on the inside it was ok. You can hear what other people talk trough the walls, in the morning i could not sleep anymore because of people making noise on the hallway Limited variety in breakfast, even if it mentioned as continental

    Very convenient to my business visit to Warren, New Jersey. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. I would stay there again.

    Some of the hallway decor needs attention.

    It was quiet,well kept and very friendly.

    I would like for the bathroom to be cleaned a litttle more especially the bathtub and shower doors.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Close to highway.

    The entrance to the hotel office was dirty and muddy, I am assuming that that the hotel is under remodelling, if not it was scary looking with the windowless on the second floor which was very scary.

    Very bad outside, they were refurbishing it but did not finish the job I guess.

    You had a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. It was clean and affordable.

    The breakfast area and selection were not satisfactory.
