Great Service Very spacious and nicely appointed I brought the kids here mainly for the indoor pool so they can go whether rain or shine

There was plenty of parking behind the building near the indoor pool, so there is no need to compete with anyone Has EV charging too for those of you that run on batteriesThe restaurant downstairs has fair prices, which is competitive against the need to drive out and eatWhile we gave it 5 stars anyway, I just wanted to note that the photo of the indoor pool is a bit misleading The pool is a little smaller in real life, but it is still roomy and not too crowded when we went

Rob Jelinski

Beautiful hotel that sits on the Connell business park now renamed The Park Like all Embassy Suites each room offers sofa/ kitchen area and the bedroom area These are spacious and nicely decorated for the price point

Included in the stay are a free breakfast buffet (oatmeal, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, etc and an omelette station) which are good and quality does vary of some offerings based on the time you eat They also give a complimentary drink for each adult per/ night of your stay This is a nice touch and you can upcharge if you’d like top shelf brandsLots of common areas for working which is the top priority here for most guests There is also a full Starbucks on site and a great reading area in front of the shop See my Grain & Cane review for notes on the on-site restaurant which is 👌🏼 tooThe pool area could use a little love, but all in all the Staff was very courteous, the property was very clean, and all in all I would highly recommend it!

The room was dirty upon check in, there was like white substance all over the bed shams and all over the doors and all over the floor, there was also a sticky substance seeping out of the refrigerator the room smelled like they were covering up maybe pet odor The scent from the vents was very overwhelming like a deodorizer

The lamp was broken and hanging sideways There was no happy medium with the air conditioner, it blew right on us all night and there were no abilities to set the vents in an opposite way away from the beds the breakfast stations were jampacked nowhere to sit young kids touching all the food with their hands, and the lines wrapped around the tables for fresh omelets, which led us to get breakfast at Starbucks Maybe it was a wedding weekend? The hotel should alert guests when something like this is occurring, We weren’t able to use the pool, there were so many kids in it and it was a very small 3ft pool, and we chose this location specifically for the pool Very unhappy We even came late like 8 pm And check-in was at 3, we told them we would be late so they had an ample amount of time to clean the hotel room , the daybed cushions were not even put in correctly the zipper seam was facing out The hotel has such potential

really quite nice and inexpensive Faced with paying about $250 for a night at the Hilton Garden Inn or $150 at the Turkey Inn, it was a great inexpensive alternative The person with whom I spoke a couple of times before I arrived was thoughtful and attentive and made the logistics work perfectly

A large comfortable room with old furniture was really welcoming This is a great find in the State I Hate (Spent my formative years in NJ and its certainly a good part of the reason I am malformed)

Katie A

Loved staying here! I called the owners last minute and they were so accommodating and got everything ready quickly I spent time talking to Bill upon arrival whose family owned the inn for generations and he is lovely! So much history! The room (room 9) was on the top floor and large, comfortable and such a great value Included coffee, a cooktop, microwave and fridge, a large seating area and work desk

The grounds are lovely and we’ll cared for, and it’s a quick 2-3 minute walk into the middle of town Definitely recommend and will be back

Kathleen Brennan

Super-cute inn only a few blocks from Springfield Avenue and the Summit Train Station Though there is free parking, it is also close to community parking lots My ensuite room was big, very clean, and came with thoughtful details like a bottle opener, champagne flutes, and even a flashlight

Check-in was finished even before I got there (I received my keys in a personalized envelope), and there is a complimentary coffee bar in the sunny front sitting room The only downside was that there wasn’t an elevator (that I saw), so anyone with mobility issues might have a more difficult time reaching the rooms on upper floors

The worst guest service I have ever encountered in my life My family had just experienced an electrical fire in our home so we had to make a last minute reservation here My father, who booked the reservation, stayed behind to speak with the first responders and our now traumatized dog

We arrive to an extremely rude concierge refusing to allow us in, demanding that my father arrive to present ID After explaining our dire situation to them, we were met with shrugs and complete and utter disregard They did not offer any solution except for us to call corporate or have my father show up We were forced to look for somewhere else to stay- it’s pouring outside and late Beyond dissatisfactory- the staff clearly needs retraining I’ll never forget how they treated me and my family in a time of need A shame

Maliah K

So let’s start off this review with the front desk Some of them are friendly and a great help and some need training againNow lets go to breakfast

I really wish they had better breakfast The oatmeal is watery Coffee taste like it is old and they never wash the coffee machine The tables were dirty The dishes looked like they were ran through just hot water and no soap I was very disappointed with the breakfastNow let’s talk about the pool place There are towels everywhere As a guest you should pick up your towel and put it in the basket but for the guest who are to good for that the housekeeping will not bother picking them up I saw the same towel there for days! When you ask for towels for the pool they will give you the white towels There is this machine that is there and covered up you can see the rust on it and its grossThe pool itself is dirty They might clean the pool after weeks While i was swimming in the pool i looked down and there was a bunch of hair in thereThe water looked murkie That is how you know the pool is not clean The windows in the pool area are dirty Around the pool looks like no one cares to clean it You can see the smudges all over the windows It looks really bad! The hot tub has been out of order for a hot minute now Another annoying thing i came across is that they were swimming lessons going on I did not know that guest have to deal with swimming classes I think that is very unprofessional and very uncomfortableNow about the rooms They are a good size rooms it’s just that they smell dingy Thinking it is just me i wanted to give them the benefit of doubt Friday Housekeeping came and let me tell you how i was shocked with their cleaning They will not wipe the nightstands The headboard you can see marks on there as well I left some stuff there and when i came back it was still there The linen does not smell clean at all Nothing they put out smells clean or washed It has a very dingy smell The bathroom mirrors you can see the smudges and toothpaste marks The wall to the side of the mirror you can see toothpaste marks there as well The shower area the only thing they do in the tub is rinse it with water There was hair along side the walls on the toilet seat and if you looked close enough there was hair behind the bathroom door alongside the walls Now the kitchen They do not wipe down the counters at all The dishes in the dishwater are only run through water When we came back and went to use the dishes there was food marks still on there the glass and spoons had marks on them as well I then had to put dish detergent in the dishwasher and run it again The hallways smelly dingy as well It is like they never clean the carpets THE PRODUCTS THEY USE IF THEY USE ANY ARE CHEAP AND NASTY THEY NEED TO RETRAIN OR HIRE NEW CLEANING PEOPLE There are a few nice cleaning people but majority of them need to learn how to talk to guest and not make them feel uncomfortableThe guest who stay here regardless them being long term or short term pay money to stay here The management does not use good cleaning products or the right equipment to clean Cleaning also does not happen everyday day I think it is twice a week When you take money from us for staying there everyday you should have them clean the rooms everyday as wellI know Marriott is a very well know name I have stayed at many around the world I would say that the hotels in third world countries are way cleaner than the one here in Woodbridge NJ Would i recommend anyone to stay here no never Management really needs to step up their game in cleaning the place

Adam

The two women who checked me in for my stay were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful!!I did have an issue the second morning of my stay I was rudely awakened by a woman who seemed to be management knocking on my door I open the door to chat with this woman, and she explained that my card on file declined for the charges

Understandable that this is a concern for the property, however instead of taking a gentle, friendly approach – which should be used toward guests (especially who you just woke up) she decided to tell me that payment is due now and ‘normally in these situations police would be called in 30 minutes” TMI and offensive in my opinion As a titanium elite member, I really did not appreciate the insinuation that I could not afford to pay, or the approach this woman took with addressing the issue at hand I went straight to the front desk and completed my payment The issue was a simple lock that I had placed on my cardThe room I was in was very spacious and the layout was excellent However the furniture arrangement was arkward and uncomfortable, so I took it upon myself to rearrange the suite to a more comfortable layout (as shown in images) Several things were broken / not functioning properly, all of which were easy fixes that I personally addressed

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This website will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t regret itThis hotel location was excellent!! You had a Walmart extremely close by two restaurants and the room was absolutely clean and modern!! We had so much space despite sharing a room as a family! It met our needs to sleep shower and go on about our next stop the Statue of Liberty!! If you’re traveling with the family I would definitely recommend this place! My husband was the only person who took advantage of the free breakfast because we were running late but it was all worth it!! If you need to get to the Statue Liberty from Philly stay here you will not regret it!!

I have been staying at Hilton since past 7-8 years and this was the worst experience ever Starting from the check-in – We were not greeted with happy faces at all We had total of 6 rooms for the week so total around like 15-16 nights since i had used points for some rooms and paid for the other

We had a baby shower event nearby and booked the rooms for my guests and my family but they were also utterly disappointed by the overall experience The major concern was the provision of the housekeeping service and bath/hand towels We had to literally beg for towels every few hours since they would not give us the number of towels we requested We could see they have enough towels at the back of the reception but still would not give us that It literally felt like they were discriminating towards my brown skin They would not provide housekeeping the same day even if we asked for it in the morning I have been staying at Hiltons since the beginning of Pandemic but never had such experience anywhere else I had options nearby to book my rooms for the baby shower but chose this since I had previously stayed at this property couple of times They had like 4-5 front desk people sitting doing nothing during the work hours They should instead hire more house keepers I really hope Hilton will take some acceptable action towards the customer service at this particular property

Joelle Romano

We arrived and was given a room that upon first entry was clean and it appeared everything was fine The room happened to be on the side with a lot of street traffic, which made sleeping the first night completely impossible That next morning, we realized the a/c didn’t work properly and we had an unwanted “guest” (rhymes with coach!) in our bathroom

We spoke with Amanda at the front desk and she was able to move us to the opposite side of the hotel room we were in THAT room was also clean, a/c worked and sleep that night was great! Breakfast selection was nice Amanda is the reason I’m able to give this hotel a better rating than I would have if we stayed in the room we were given

Thallis Miranda

We were very disappointed, I have never left a bad review in any of the dozens of hotels I’ve stayed through the country or world Lights weren’t working, service at front desk neglected to take requests Other customer complaining constantly, one gentleman checked in his room and small daughter to find blood stains on bed sheets

Last time we stayed there we loved it (about 2 years ago) seems like no updates have been done at all since, neither has any repairs There was puke in the entrance sink to the room The paper towel at the lobby men’s bathroom was empty for all 4 days we stayed there Breakfast was dry and cold, attendant didn’t care much when advised about breakfast essentials such as cups and food ran out We paid the same price for what we could’ve paid staying in Manhattan Unfortunately we will not be recommending this hotel neither will we be returning again

Mario Jones

The rooms in this place are extremely out dated and unsanitary However the ladies at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful, that’s the reason why I gave this place at least (2) star’s The breakfast was non existent, no juice only water, nothing but cereal and bread, a few old stale bagels and boiled eggs

We used to love this place, but I can’t imagine recommending this place any longer to my company HR department when our travelers fly into liberty airport

As a Hilton fan, we are a bit disappointed The check in was very smooth, staff was very friendly and helpful Room was very comfortable, great view, but be awarded pictures can be misleading

outdoor pool is not as fancy and big as we expected, a lot of people using it daily( at least when we were there), patio is part of the restaurant for outdoor dinning, cant just go in there and enjoy the seating parking is not free, will cost you 18 dollar per night no microwave at all in the room or lobby Breakfast was not impressive Staff were nice, but really short staffed do your calculation before booking

Richard Krasney

Samantha help us book our wedding block rooms and sent up complementary champagne with my wife’s name on the label, as well as chocolate covered strawberries She was so great to work with and the hotel couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful They even helped us when her ride to the wedding didn’t show up and she was dressed in her wedding dress waiting to go to the ceremony

The hotel stepped up with their Hilton Honors Cadillac and got her there in time for the ceremony Thank you for making our stay so special and memorable

Nate B

Ok this hotel is very very nice in regards to the rooms Recently renovated however they charge 18$ a night for parking AND make sure you double check the bill! They might double charge you If you’re Hilton honors the 15$ meal credit is essentially worthless for breakfast

Coffee is 7$ and They charge 20$ on average for their meals which are merger at best! I would skip this Hilton location and go to their Home 2 down the road with free99 breakfast AND free parking

My wife and I set up a hotel block of rooms for our wedding at the Holiday Inn Clark on July 16, 2022 We worked with Lori, who went above and beyond to ensure all of our needs were met for all of our guests She was always available to take our calls when we wanted to change/ask questions

The check in process went extremely smooth and quick Cecilia the bartender of the hotel restaurant was absolutely fantastic for our hotel after party We even did a group breakfast buffet the next morning in a private room that was absolutely delicious! If you are looking to stay at a hotel in the Clark area we highly recommend this hotel!!!!

Paula Lancaster

The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful I wasn’t able to take advantage of the pool or exercise area but both looked goodThe breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, pre-prepared and warmed pancakes, eggs, sausage, and hash browns; apples, oranges, and yogurt

Apple juice in containers, coffee and hot water for tea – but this was provided at a cost of $15 (incl taxes) per person, which I find exorbitantIn the room there was not hot water at the sink, but the shower was warm The room was clean and comfortable The TV worked I read a review that indicated there were wood floors in the rooms, but mine was carpetedThe lock at the door was repaired from what looked like a forced entryI would stay again but I would not pay for that breakfast

Maxine Wilde

I’ve stayed in this hotel about twice year for at least a decade As always, the hotel is clean and fresh and the staff is polite and helpful In the past the service in the restaurant had been good, too

But not this time Included in my room rate was a hot, cooked-to-order breakfast in the restaurant, and I’ve always enjoyed a fresh cooked omelet seated comfortably at a table This time, on Sunday there was only the barely warm food on the buffet available: scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage only Not the best, but at least a meal eaten comfortably at a table But on Monday, although there was a buffet set up, I was not even allowed into the restaurant I was told I could take a pre-wrapped sandwich out of the hotel store back to my room Maybe to reheat in the microwave? Really? That’s not what I paid for And no decaf K-cups or creamers available in the room Had to go back down to the lobby to get them Disappointing

Maria vera

The room was a good size, but the carpet was extremely dirty and sticky They say they steam clean all rooms which have had dogs, can’t possibly believe that’s true The halls and rooms are filled with a foul smell, mildew foul odor

Getting fresh towels, linen, even soap-one has to fill out a form at the front desk, CRAZY! Just to have your room clean one must give a 24 hour notice, and if the front desk forgets to schedule it in their log book, they contradict the customer, saying since it’s not scheduled, no cleaning can be be done until the following day I tried rectifying this by scheduling in advance, cleaning service everyday, I was shocked to be told by the front desk, I wasn’t allowed to schedule my room clean everyday! Don’t bother to ask for cleaning service during the weekends, apparently there isn’t any This Hilton, needs new management, new paint, new room furniture and new carpets The breakfast area is okay, but the floors are extremely sticky And no it’s not just during breakfast time, I walked over around 3 pm for a cup of coffee and everyday the the floor was sticky Bring a pair of sandals, don’t let your babies walk barefoot, the carpets are super super smelly and extremely unhygienic I would say the hotel does have comfortable beds and ONE lady, at the front desk, seems to be the only one who knows how to be professional and tries hard to help guests Other than that, the hotel should not be classified as part of the “Hilton” brand

Laprecious Wright

Hotel was in a perfect location especially for my planned attractions There was an odor outside of the hotel that was sickening but inside was pleasant with a great smell Each floor has selected days that rooms are serviced

Washcloths and towels are not provided daily unless a request is made by noon each day, which is an inconvenience Hotel did run out of towels and washcloths which was also an inconvenience especially to paying guest

Philip McLaughlin

Received phone call from hotel while driving to get there Was told the accessible room I reserved was not available No explanation why

Was given room with 2 dbl beds instead of king size and no walk-in shower Wife has had both knees replaced and has trouble getting into tub even with grab bars Breakfast was so-so, eggs with peppers (don’t like peppers) No fresh cut fruit the 2nd day No waffle maker One elevator out of order leaving only one elevator for entire building (3 floors) Only 2 staircases for building AC worked very well

A true gem for either business or personal stay We have stayed here numerous times due to working late and love it The owners are genuine and gracious hosts with great conversation

Cant wait to come back when the weather turns to sit on the porch while having my morning tea Perfect place for a long weekend getaway or business stay while enjoying the best of what Downtown Summit has to offer Thank you, Michelle & Nicholas

I was able to live comfortably as if I had come home Although the inn is over 100 years old, it is clean and the rooms are modern and It is a 5 minute walk to Summit DowntownThe staff are friendly and nice to sit in the garden at night for a beer

Especially, the strong wi-fi is good for simple jobs, both cell phone and notebook(laptop) work fine The water pressure in the shower is a bit weak^^*I miss the cool breeze of the garden

kaethe cuomo

We spent our 50th anniversary weekend at the DeBary Inn in Summit and Innkeepers Lee and Sharon went above and beyond to ensure we had an experience to remember From the warm welcome to the beautiful surroundings and special attention they give to all guests, we highly recommend anyone going to Summit to make this a part of their visit! Suite 17 was the perfect accommodations and a place to call home for the weekend (the bed was the most comfortable we have encountered in our travels!) We went to the Papermill Playhouse for a show which was only 8 minutes away and the Inn is perfectly situated walking distance to town with numerous restaurants, shops and the train station The owners purchased the Inn one year ago and have updated it and made it beautiful, comfortable and a home away from home

We look forward to returning for what we know will be another memorable stay!

Such a beautiful old-world hotel that is frozen in time Elegant and charming are the first words that came to mind when I walked into the beautiful lobby The room was recently renovated but still has much of the old hotel architecture such as a window in the bathroom

The staff are all very friendly and the bar is definitely a locals hangout that welcomes visitors with open arms Every single employee we encountered was courteous, friendly and accommodating Such a wonderful place to rest after a long flight The hotel is very convenient to Newark without the New York prices Highly recommend

My partner and I have stayed numerous times at Grand Summit We usually need to check in early, around (1/1:30 pm) for meetings, and check out very early (5 am) We never had to pay for an early check-in until the last time

The front desk attendants enlightened us that the new check-in fee of $50 is the result of the new management and cannot be waived Clearly, the new management is not making good business decisions as we will not be staying there again because of it In general, the hotel was ok- clean rooms, generic and tacky decor, and hit-or-miss staff We mostly stayed there because of its historic past and convenient location

$300/night (not even base prices, this is the rate I got through a third party) TO FIND MENS BOXERS IN THE DRESSER IN THE ROOM, a motel with full size beds, a/c that won’t go lower than cooling the room to 75° in April with the heat blasting in the hallways while it’s 71° outside, and a “deluxe continental breakfast” that resembles prison food Complete rip off, the fact that it looks interesting from the outside does not justify these prices

Location was great; the town is very walkable and this hotel is close to so many shops, restaurants, transportation, and parks I booked in advance through Snap Travel and received an itemized receipt Upon checking in, I gave my credit card, I assume for any damages

In my room, the phone on the desk was fake (no dial-tone, buttons didn’t work), the refrigerator was stuck at 48 degrees (the light did not work on it, neither up and down buttons worked) and there were a couple of other things if I was knit-picking, but I won’tMy biggest concern was the fact that I signed a receipt, but did not receive one from the hotel What I signed was regarding parking my vehicle in their lot I then received a charge on my credit card for the amount of a 1-night stay, that remained pending through the week Upon calling the hotel to ensure this pending charge would be cancelled, they asked if I was certain I checked out, asked for my full name, my credit card number, and phone number It seemed I was not in their system, or they were having trouble confirming I was ever thereI’m hoping to receive contact again soon

We stayed in this hotel May 25-June 1 The total for our stay was $1,19175

This hotel froze $5448 of our money, which caused us deep distress while on vacation! What type of business does that??? We have bills that are paid out of our account and they had this large sum of money tied up and unavailable for our use I tried numerous times to resolve this issue with the front desk and was assured that the manager would contact me I NEVER received a call from this manager and the staff could care less that my family was being billed this astronomical amount of money while on our vacation They ruined our vacation and severely limited the things we were able to enjoy with our kids We even had to shift money around at the last minute to make sure that our mortgage payment was covered!!! This is unacceptable and I do not recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

Nice clean spacious rooms in a great location, the gym is well equipped as well There wasn’t a microwave, or fridge in the rooms which is a negative but doable seeing as the hotel also has a stocked bar that serves great food The reason for the 3 star review is a private event rented out the bar and kicked all paying hotel guests out, highly inconvenient and will affect my choices and recommendation in the future

Update: The bartender’s servers and other employees that I had the pleasure of interacting with deserve 5 stars, they are amazing people that are doing a fantastic job (even the bartender that said we could not be served because of the private event, he was fantastic the following night no hard feelings he was just doing what he was told) The place in general is 4 stars The rating is strictly off of general upkeep, there are a few blemishes that could use some professional touches to ensure the maintenance personnel are able to keep up a 5 star appearance

Great location… an easy commute to the city I like being outside of the hustle and bustle, noise, crime, and grit of NYC The hotel itself isa five minute walk to the train

The room are spacious and clean Whenever I call for service, they send someone right away Friday & Saturday night jazz in the cafe is an outstanding bonus I am very happy I chose this place

Stay away from this hotel This rooms were dirty, bathrooms were not clean, furniture was old and dinged Service was horrible

We got in at 11 am at night and there were 2 couples before us waiting for their room They were told that they couldn’t find their reservation Those poor people showed them that they booked thru Hilton Instead of talking to these people and apologizing that they double booked, the front desk called cops Long story short, same thing happened to us They couldn’t find our reservation and had double booked and gave our rooms to someone else, even though we are Hilton honor members and booked through Hilton website After an hour and a half, they gave us a room with a King ( we had reserved a queen- 2 adults and 2 kids) The room was dirty The floor was not clean Front desk had to go down and get us towels The bathroom was dirty as well and there was a half used shower gel left in the shower stallWe could not sleep at all as this room faced the garage and had unloading loading noises all throughout the night and early morning After talking to the front desk, they finally shifted to a room with two queens and gave us free breakfast, the next day which was niceThe room that they switched us to was clean but of course the furniture was old and had scratches and dings on it The front desk manager was nice told us that we wont be charged for that night as a courtesy and she apologized However, they charged us for NO SHOW for the first nightThis hotel has lot of problems Younger lady at front desk was very rude did not apologize They have horrible serviceIf they are negative ratings, I would give them a negative 10 Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel The only good thing about this hotel was eclectic decor

Let me start off by saying I am a fan at staying at this embassy suites location because almost always I am greeted by welcoming faces all around, but Friday was very differentAfter a long day I wanted to grab a meal at the restaurant in the hotel, the server Danny was extremely helpful with the menu, and overall was great as she tackled table after table I did notice the chef was very rude to her and another gentleman

While I was eating I heard some things fall, and seen the person in the kitchen throwing pans It was a concerning sight because the energy from her was felt throughout the entire restaurantOverall I love the embassy suites, and I do enjoy the service but this was one of the first days I did not finish my meal It was very undercooked, and too greasy for my liking I’m hoping for some improvements moving forward because usually the restaurant is one of the best parts of staying at this hotelI do give credit to the server that was working, she is one reason I am still willing to give this hotel/restaurant one more chance

Hugh W

The staff at this location is super nice, friendly, helpful and professional The overall perception of the employees, everyone works as a team making this Hotel the place to stay The lobby is very spacious, the complimentary breakfast is on point, the rooms are a decent size for a family of five and lots of outdoor parking spaces

I recommend and definitely will stay here again

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your place They compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This place is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you decide to stay here you won’t be let downRoom was very nice and clean Staff friendly and very approachable Location convenient to airport via just a short drive, it is walking distance to a very large Mall and to restaurants I didn’t need to test wifi while I was there so I’m unable to provide any information on that

Richard Turcsik

The rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable I had a room on the lower level facing the Garden State Parkway but thanks to the sound proof windows I could not hear the traffic The staff was great, especially Sebastian

The only downsides were that there is not a restaurant in the hotel, although they have a kiosk in the morning that sells coffee and light breakfast items However, there is an ACME within walking distance and tons of great restaurants just minutes away Try the Galloping Hill Inn in Union for an excellent hot dog! My only other downside was that they only clean the rooms and make the beds if you give them 24 hour notice that you would like your room cleaned

Shepherd’s Crook

Thank you for honoring my request for late check-in My first room assignment was cancelled due to heavy smoke odor in hallway Front desk clerk made every attempt to accommodate

Thank you The fabric covered headboard in the second room assignment was mysteriously stained Please replace the mysteriously stained headboards It could cause the imagination to run wild Also, the top bed sheet reeked of fragrance very odd Since I’m highly sensitive to fragrances, this experience resulted in restless sleep and a severe migraine Due to my exhaustion level both at check-in and checkout, I had nothing else to spend Overall my quality of stay was voided mainly due to the fragrance issue Although a bit cramped, it wasn’t a huge issue for me Thank you Kenilworth Inn

Stayed one night before flying out of Newark Airport, using the fly and 7 day park package Very friendly staff at both check in and check out The room was not fancy, but relatively large and quite clean

Lots of parking on site, and the staff were efficient in ordering a complimentary Lyft to the airport (instead of a shuttle, as the driver was off shift) The coffee maker in the room was broken, but even that was a fairly positive experience as they had maintenance there within a few minutes to swap it out!

Rooms are really nice ❤️! Love the setup and beautiful decorum Only critique is no bathtub I didn’t really interact with staff, but everyone seemed pretty chill

Jerseys a very different seen than I am use to so I don’t think I can judge the location fairly although I would have liked it to be in a more open and scenic place Has exercise room so that is always a plus for me 😊!
