I stay here about 45 days per year and have been coming here for 2 years. Although every hotel has a bad day/bad room every once in a while, overall, this place is the best option with the best value within a 15 mile radius. It's nicely located on 46 with easy access to 46E or 46W. Plenty of restaurants/bars nearby. Also, Ruby's in the hotel is pretty good for what you may expect from a Holiday Inn menu. Joey at the bar is fantastic and attentive. The bar is a great place to relax after a 12 hour day and it's outfitted nicely with many new TVs to catch your favorite sport. Mohan (GM) and the front desk staff are always friendly, fast and thorough. *If* you ever experience any problem, whether small or large, Mohan and team bend over backwards to fix it and make your stay worthwhile.
The hotel is old, yet remodeled (but everything in NJ is old). The lobby is attractive. If you're a first-time guest, the hotel is tucked away behind a Petco and may be a bit challenging to find at first even though you can easily see it on 46. The rooms are nice, walls perhaps a bit thin (but what hotel isn't?). There is plenty of parking (don't forget about the 3 level underground garage like most do!).
Within 8 minutes you have an outstanding sushi restaurant (Sushi Lounge), a new Tilted Kilt in Wayne, Bahama Breeze, H00ters, etc. Most days I prefer just to relax at Ruby's downstairs and they make it even more appealing with free-drink cards and a 3$ coupon off a dinner entree. Ruby's menu is boring and limited, but there are a few great items: Wings are surprisingly good, nachos, Chicken Madiera, Pork Chops, Skirt Steak, Burgers to name a few. They have a full bar (wine/beer/liquor) and the bar is huge so you can always grab a seat.
You won't find a better option in the area.

Efficient and welcoming check-in. We arrived at late dinner hour and front desk was very helpful with a ready list of local dining facilities. We chose this hotel for its location as we were going to NYC for a cruise the next day, and was rewarded with our decision to stay in NJ rather than in Manhattan.
