Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Whaler25 Needs some upgrading
Rooms were clean but still had lingering smoke issues.
Bathroom was on the older side. Needed a good fix up and renovation. Many crackc and toilet and sinks were very old and severe stains shown.
Bed and pillow comfortable. New rugs may be in order.
Pool was stated to be heated. Was very cold.
Restaurant décor was dated but food was very good. Large portions for decent price. Only 2 servers made it for a very slow service time. They also had to handle room service delivery.
Was a good stay for the short time we were staying. Would book again but only for a night or two.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by StayBeforeEarlyFlight Too smokey
for the price I expected better. the room was difficult to sleep in due to the smoke. the smell was in the hallway as well.
if it were closer to the airport the price might be justified, but as it stands it was a premium price for a less than stellar location and the smell stuck in my clothes the next day

Great staff and great truck parking. Exceptional parking lot for truckers considering the location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyHoov Forgot reservation
While my stay was most pleasant including only decaf coffee in the room (I suspect Crystal took care of that), I do have 1 comment. I had forgotten to make my reservation the previous week (I'm a weekly visitor) so I called the hotel directly. As soon as the word reservation was out of my mouth I was transferred to the Holiday Inn reservation system. The reason I call the hotel directly is that I know most of the people, and most of them know my preferences, so I would prefer to deal with them vs some corporate reservation person. It is also quicker. As soon as the reservation clerk picked up I asked to be transferred back to the hotel. My request was accommodated and things went smoothly from that point.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JSgrufst44 Very clean but avoid the restaurant!
The pluses : very clean room! They have fridges and a microwave and even a kuerig! It's great!
The bad: The restaurant. Avoid it. The food was either overly flavored (garlic mashed potatoes) or totally bland (chicken francais). Even the kids didn't like their food. The staff wasn't very friendly but they did their job just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent Property and Staff
Great staff and Clean rooms.
We have been greeted with warm words and great service. Key was ready for the rooms and FDC brought all our language to the room. Rooms had everything and were neat and clean. Staff was helpful and friendly really seemed to want the stay to be pleasant for us. When we entered in the rooms we had GM welcome letter with goody bags which was great. Hotel has restaurant on premises which is very convenient when traveling with family. Hotel is conveniently located very close to NYC and Newark Airport. Best place to stay if you are traveling NYC and want to avoid city cost and traffic.

Night clerk needs to care about the property and left my wife and I stranded at 3am with no remorse. There are other locations in the city that finish the experience and treat you like a guest. Morning clerk and manager were friendly and room was immaculate.

The lobby and hallway smelled like smoke plus the hotel did not have an elevator. Exiting from the parking lot was problematic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John1001 Skip the breakfast buffet
"Clean rooms, great staff, skip the breakfast buffet"
A bit dated on the outside and the hallways, but rooms had everything and were neat and clean. Staff was helpful and friendly, really seemed to want the stay to be pleasant for us. As a platinum member I was offered a free "breakfast buffet" did not realize (no one told us and they were out of the coupons) that this could be used towards 20% off the real breakfast. What they call a breakfast buffet and apparently charge non platinum members for was about as poor an excuse for breakfast as I have run across. Some sort of "egg" squares, we weren't really sure what to think of them and that famous shaved bacon that you can see through. Generally, the HIEs we stay at offer 3-4 times the spread (choices) to everyone for free. This was bad enough that they would be better off not offering it. There is a restaurant on premises, I would assume they have a good food, wish we had tried it. Other than that disappointment, decent place to stay when traveling. We didn't use it, but the work out room was well equipped!read less

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rileyw9701 Hotel was fine, location was not.
I know its NJ and I should expect a lot of concrete, but the hotel location made it difficult to get to because of the roads.
My room was too close to the smoking rooms and when walking through the hallway the smell was annoying.
The room was clean and the pillows very comfortable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by selliott Nice Hotel
This is a nice hotel and was convenient to the Amtrak locations I was working at. This hotel is difficult to get to with its location next to the overpass. I arrived after dark and was unable to figure out how to get to the hotel which caused a 30 minute delay and a 5 mile detour just to get back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JC1030 Stinky room
I always request a non smoking room but what I got this time was anything but. This room smelled like someone had been smoking in there for years. It is in the drapes, the carpet, the furniture and the bedding. There hasn't been a deodorizer made that could make that room smell better. In case you are wondering, I am a Platnum member.

We did the park and stay option and flew out of Newark Liberty. This may not be the closest hotel to the airport, but the staff is the best! We enjoyed everybody we encountered during our stay and they were all friendly and helpful. Do yourself a favor a book a room here if you are flying!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TAYLORY1 A Surprise
My room was clean and accommodating however I know I reserved at the best rate but i was not asked where I preferred to be. I didn't like the fact that I was given a room with an adjoining door, without being asked. That door bothered me a lot. A single woman i felt vulnerable. I wound up putting a chair under the door knob so that i could sleep....
Why I didn't ask for another room? , it was already late I was tired (and had to be up and ready early for a centralized work pick up). All in all it was quiet. Though it was next to a highway the noise was minimal.
Though I live on the other side of town I never thought to utilize this hotel because i thought of high expenses.. I love that the room had a hot water pot for coffee/tea, a microwave and fridge, so the food that I brought in didn't go to waste. Some places do not have all the amenities at once.
All in all I would give it a try again. QUESTION: if you do not have a car how does a person get across the highway (not user friendly) to the strip malls?

The freezer is extremely noisy. This was the second time for me to try this hotel. I was very disappointed. This was the only IHG hotel ignored my member status twice, the freezer in the room created lots of noise. I definitely wouldn't try it again when I visit Carteret next time.
