Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJ1975 good hotel
good clean hotel, staff should spend more time out behind the desk and less time on the phone in the side room. Other then that it was a great stay.

One of the best Holiday Inns I visit, staff and facility are always a pleasure to deal with, very accommodating.
Would refer this location to anyone staying in NJ/NY area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Little1linda Beautiful hotel...noisy location
A beautiful, immaculate HI Express with a friendly and helpful staff. The only thing I would say to watch out for is that the hotel is on a very busy street (US Highway 1) and the noise is 24/7. It was so loud that we were unable to sleep through the night. I would definitely recommend this hotel but ask for a room off the main road. Other than that- would have been perfect if we'd have gotten some sleep.

The beds are extremely comfortable. Rooms are very clean, and accommodations requested to be away from the highway were honored.

I absolutely love this hotel!
The rooms are up to date and clean. They have nice TVs with a good selection of channels to catch any shows you follow. I would like to see NFL Network but that's unlikely in any hotel. The wireless internet connection is fast enough and there is even a wired connection although I don't think its any faster. One minor gripe I have is that there are refrigerators in the rooms without freezers. I travel a lot and like to shop at grocery stores for dinner so a freezer is key for me. I'm certain that if you ask the staff would be more than happy to get you one.
The area is nice and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Newark. The is an amazing ShopRite less than a mile away that stocks anything you could ever want. There are also several good dining options very close. It's really more of a residential area off of the highway.
The breakfast in the hotel is not great. Like many other HIEs, the eggs are dry and the sausage greasy. Maybe they just don't get eaten frequently enough and dry out under the heat lamps. This is something I would like to see Holiday Inn Express address as a franchise because they are quickly falling behind the curve of other hotels when it comes to breakfast quality. For someone like me, the free hot breakfast is a major draw to this brand, but if it isn't even edible I might have to reconsider in the future.
The front desk staff is pleasant and willing to help and address issues you might have. A+ for them.
This is my new go to hotel in the area. I drive about 30 mins to work when I stay here, just to stay at this hotel.

Difficult to pay $149 for a nice room with an HD ready flat screen and watch SD television. Hard to understand why HD is available in most HIE properties and not in others.

First time staying at this hotel. Right away I was greeted as a priority member and given a bag of goodies, which rarely happens anymore. The room I stayed in was on the third floor and the elevator was always clean and working well. Breakfast was a bit difficult because it was too crowded but the variety was okay for a continental breakfast, basics. There was an issue traveling to the hotel each day, due to how the road was setup but that's out of the hotels control. A small parking lot but surprisingly I never had to wait for a parking spot.
