Nice room. Clean and quite. Only concern was the whirlpool tub in my room. You could hear showers and toilets being flushed through the drain in it.

This is one of the nicest Holiday Inn Express hotels I've stayed in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by David - Gold Elite Nothing to point to the positive
Our poor experience at HIE Newark Heath started when we arrived. I did not realize when I stopped the car at the entrance by the registration desk that the person 'working' at the desk was actually standing outside smoking and talking on a cell phone.
I went inside and waited and waited for the desk staff to arrive. Some guests came and stood and left. A second person arrived and joined me in my waiting for registration vigil. I tried ringing the hotel phone to see if someone was in an office. The phone worked, but no one answered.
Eventually, the person at the desk returned a said he needed to make an emergency call to get a housekeeping staff member to come in to clean a room. I guess that call could not have been made from the desk phone.
Twenty minutes after I arrived at the hotel we were checked in.
When we got to the room, I was surprised to see housekeeping had turned on the air conditioning and set the thermstat at 60 degrees. The room was 62 and uncomfortable for hours.
I was even more surprised to see the trash container in the room still held the empty beer bottles from the guest#s# before. Since we don't drink, I was certain they weren't ours.
Later on, when I went down to the desk to confirm the person who checked us in had given us credit for our Rewards Club points #he hadn't# the person offered to return to the room and remove the trash. It was a little too late to salvage this stay. No greeting, no welcome package, no offer of 300 points in exchange and almost no points at all. The nearby hotel looked like such a better option by this point.
We usually give HIE the first chance. Big negative experiences over the past year have dampened that willingness. This doesn't seem a bad place, but our staff experience was terrible.

We attended the 2014 Mopar Nationals and this was our first time at this hotel. We were extremely impressed with the staff---they were all so friendly and went out of their way to make sure our time there was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Demon Dave clean room with big bathroom
Our stay at the hotel was great.
Great service, good food.
Pool was freezing cold.
doubling the price for that weekend is just wrong.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Abbygrace Clean, quiet room, "not handicap" as reserved
Not the room I reserved at all. The front desk tried to tell me it was a handicap room. No one reserves a handicap room unless they need one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djinvasion21 Comfortable room, great service, very quiet
I've been to this Holiday Inn twice now in the Heath area and its conveniently right next to the Indian Mound Mall as well as a variety of grocery stores and restaurants around it. The bed was very comfortable, enough lighting for the whole bed and bathroom. No major problems. The internet was really bad the two nights I stayed, most likely wireless issues. The pool was quite nice too, not huge, but comfortable for myself and my fiance and big enough for a small family to enjoy with others. Otherwise no huge issues here.

Would NEVER stay again.First, was WAY overcharged.Then, to be told no smoking and to walk into the room and smell smoke ? Then to find out the place burned down 3 years before and STILL smell smoke? Would only stay at a Holiday Inn, now, probably NEVER will.
