Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terryc84 Great experience
My son was getting married near the hotel, so I blocked rooms here for my faily & our guests. The reservations manager Monica was extremely helpful, and worked with me on the rooms & the shuttle to & from the venue.
The day before, the hotel manager made sure everything was just right.
Check in for my guests went smoothly, as did the shuttle & check out.
The day after the wedding, I realized that I had left my gown in the room, so housekeeping made sure it was brought downstairs & the front desk held it for me, so nothing would happen to it.
I would recommend this property & all the staff to anyone looking for a place for your guests who are attending an event @ the many venues nearby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ReporterTN This one needs help!
Holiday Inn really needs to do one of three things with the Totowa facility: 1) Remodel it completely; 2) Sell it; or 3) Tear it down. Though it looks fine from the highway, the building is old and timeworn, with dingy carpets, dim hallways, and scuffed furniture. Problems start right at the beginning, as the side facing the highway appears to be the entrance, but is actually the rear of the building. It took another ten minutes and several turns to find the entrance, due to lack of signage and a peculiar location behind two separate parking lots. A strange layout indeed, almost as though they are trying to hide from customers.
My room overlooked a busy four lane highway, where truck traffic rumbled rumbled over a bridge at high speeds most of the night, making restful sleep nearly impossible. The immediate neighborhood is mostly industrial in nature, and not all conducive to walking or jogging. Hopefully the place has seen better days, but those are long past.

Everything about the hotel was good. The even provided shuttle service to our party so we did not have to drive afterwards. The only downside was the difficulty accessing the hotel from the thighway.

I love this Hotel. I never think of any other place to stay while visiting the NJ/NY area. The location is great. The Staff is Warm, friendly, helpful, attentive, without being invasive. Good parking access. Lovely, delicious, healthy Breakfast.
I always try to make my next reservation before I leave the hotel, because I know this best kept secret hotel will not last forever!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmandaandDave Nice Place
Nice place to stay in North Jersey.
Location: Conveniently located across the street (about a 2 minute walk) from the Bethwood, where our friends wedding was. We didnt even bother taking the shuttle since it was so close.
Room: The bed in our room was SO COMFY! Could have laid there all day..
Staff: Staff was just OK, not all that friendly and slow as molasses.There was a line of about 10 people checking in and only 1 person working the desk. For events like weddings, they really should have 2 or more people working the desk, and should learn how to process the information quicker. We were in line for a while.
Ammenities: Not sure if they have a pool or gym or anything like that. They do have lounge on third floor which is nice place to hang out. They offer breakfast in the morning which was decent..what you'd expect from a buffet breakfast. It is served in the Ruby Lounge which is quite nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJL7 Surprisingly great
I was in town for a shoot and I was really pleasantly surprised by how nice the space was.
The manager, Mohem (sp?) was extremely gracious and helpful - he even remembered my name when I checked in!
The rooms were spacious, the free breakfast buffet during the weekdays, clutch.
If anyone finds themselves around Totowa, NJ - I would recommend they stay here. Super affordable!
Also there is a pool (I didn't check it out, but another East Coast luxury).

Hotel is kept up in a relatively good manner. Older hotel that meets the needs of business travelers who are looking for a clean room that is not too fancy. Good value in area. Breakfast buffet is very good and enjoyed the bar for evening meals.

Friday night loud fighting outside window at 2:30 pm. After 15 minutes+ of continuous cursing & profanity called front desk. Took another 10 minutes to be addressed. Lost precious sleep. No free continental breakfast on the weekends. Enjoyed a lovely bar fight at the Ruby Lounge the following night. Fight did not seem to be addressed by any hotel security/staff. Fighting dragged on throughout the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by morga01 Family Wedding
My family and I were in town for a family wedding and the family lives in Little Falls so this location was wonderful.
As you can see I gave a very nice review but the one downfall that we found was the restaurant. The 6 of us were the only diners in the room that evening and although the food was good the atmosphere was dark and depressing, and the service was very slow. For a Holiday Inn you would expect a nice cheerful atmosphere, not a bar scene, so for breakfast the following morning we found a diner down the road. Also that morning while waiting in the lobby, I saw a few families go into the restaurant and turn around and walk out. It is so much nicer when you are traveling not to have to leave your hotel for meals.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DarrenDad Worst managed Holiday Inn ever
The hallways from the lobby and fitness area of the hotel were dirty. The elevator smelled musty as did the stairwell. The food at the buffet was lukewarm at best. The air conditioner in my room barely worked. When I entered the lounge one day and asked about lunch, the barmaid was surprised and acted like no one ever ate there. I asked for a recommendation from the front desk for a steakhouse for dinner one evening and was simply handed a multi-page list of all restaurants in the area. "This is what's nearby," was the comment. The hours on the fitness center window were listed as opening at 5:30AM. The door must have someone from the hotel staff use a key to unlock a deadbolt. I tried my passkey in the door one morning at 6:00 and the deadbolt was still locked. The next morning at 7:00 I tried again with the same results. I went upstairs to the front desk and was told the fitness room would be unlocked in 2 minutes. I went back to the fitness room, waited 5 minutes, and no one showed. All of these incidents are a reflection of a poorly managed hotel. On the positive side the room was clean.

Older Holiday Inn, didn't see anyone in restaurant at night and only a handful at the lounge. Breakfast buffet was typical but not bad. One suggestion I have for this location is to have coffee in the lobby for guests. I travel a lot and this is the first property IHG or otherwise where I couldn't get a cup of coffee before 6:30 am paid for or free. Please don't suggest the in-room coffee.

The hotel appears to be a little dated but I had a great stay while visiting family and friends. The weather was extremely hot but the air conditioning kept the room comfortable and was very quiet. Hotel staff including front desk, food servers, and cleaning crew were courteous and helpful. Only cons were no microwave in our room, small selection of TV stations, and unusual entrance to property. I recommend the hotel for the value and will return during next visit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RobinNC Uncomfortable stay
I parked in the parking garage and the next day to the last day that I stayed at this hotel; part of the ceiling was drooping and the car next to me was wet and it looked like the entire ceiling was going to fall through at any time. The rooms were not cleaned to expectations. Restaurant food was undesirable and not clean. The utensils and plates were dirty every time I tried to eat. The entire stay I was unable to access any online information, because the computers were down the entire time. For the money, that we spent it was not worth the stay; therefore, we checked out and moved to another location. I tried to speak to the staff regarding the and no results.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ellie24 Stay someplace else - don't stay here
We were in town for my brother in law's funeral. This hotel was close to everyplace we needed to go so I booked two nights. The rooms are so outdated and horrible. I thought the beds were very uncomfortable. The bathroom had cracks in the sink and the shower area was not nice at all. The air conditioner barely worked. The towels - wow - can you say ROUGH? They were so bad! I did not want to stay another night at all!!!!!! I ended up cancelling the second night and we returned home - driving 7 hours after the funeral that afternoon. I would never ever stay at this hotel again. The front desk staff could not cancel my second night and finally sometime that afternoon the manager was able to do that. They left me a voice mail and sent me an email but I received no paperwork upon checkout. The second night points were credited to my account but for some reason they were deducted twice to begin with so now I have to see how to get those points back. Dissatisfied with hotel - and I recommend that you search the area and find another one. No recognition for being a Priority Club GOLD Member.

This is a good property, although dated.
As a Priority Club Member we enjoyed a wonderful free breakfast and two drinks in the lounge. We enjoyed the blueberry pork chops in the lounge/restaurant the night before we left.
One elevator was working out of two in front...kids enjoyed riding it up and down. We did not bring this to the front desk as a complaint; the kids were customers too.
We will stop here again when visiting relatives in Clifton.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bibomo Great choice for the area
The staff at the front desk and Joey at the bar is what keeps me returning. The location is great. Parking is easy. Rooms are "nice". My only complaint which seems to be consistent at this hotel (I've stayed here about 20 times in the last 2 years) is the level of cleanliness. I always seem to find some obvious hairs in my shower/tub and that really sets the tone for my perception of the level of attention the rest of the room. I wish the cleaning was better. Overall, I keep returning because the hotel has a bar/restaurant in it and the location is great. Yes, the restaurant is mediocre at best, but still, on cold winter nights or after working for 12 hours I don't feel like leaving the premises. So it's nice to have that option and Joey the bartender is one of the most attentive bartenders I've ever met.

My car broke down 5 hours from home with my daughter coming home from college, and I found this Holiday Inn by luck. Dan, at the front desk, was wonderful. He helped me relax by offering a discount rate, coupons at the lounge, and needed toiletries for an unexpected stay. What had been a very hard day turned in to a relaxing night
