Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Southernsleever Excellent staff, comfy beds, clean rooms
I'd come back here in a heartbeat. We spent a week here and all of the staff was great. The beds were comfy with lots of pillows and rooms were very clean. Coffee/tea/juice available 24/7. The dark haired woman who works mid shift at the front desk goes above and beyond. She really makes your stay amazing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by artistapart Excellent stay
I'm on the road constantly, so I have plenty of experiences with hotel life.
This hotel had great accommodations, the breakfast area was clean and private (too many hotels have their dining area's open and exposed, this was cozy). The rooms were quiet and the overall construction minimized hallway noise (my room was directly in front of the elevator and I barely heard the traffic).
My only complaint of this location was the internet speeds, although this was likely due to distance from the actual router (I had a very weak connection), and a member of staff assured me they were upgrading soon). I plan to stay here again very soon, and will update if this has been fixed.
Very close to shopping, a gym (retro fitness), and fast food choices if you're into that sort of thing.
Overall, a very good experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FamilyTraveler2013 Just a barely average facility
The hotel interior layout is really dated. The layout of the room is just strange, with a tiny bathroom with toilet and bathtub/shower that is simply claustrophobic. And the sink is in the hallway across from the bathroom door, on the left as you enter the room from the main hallway. Just a bizarre and non-functional design to say the least. Would not stay at this location again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Errieberrie Extremely friendly staff..
I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly. Everyone greeted you while in halls or at the front desk. Which is rare for a nj hotel to do in my opinion. It was very clean. Beds very comfortable and I loved that they gave you a choice of 2 types of pillows on your bed. Firm or soft which was great as my bf likes a firm pillow and I like a soft pillow. Made it much more enjoyable. Also I felt the rooms were kid friendly I don't have to keep pulling my child away from a batch of cord or lamps. Which I've had issues with at other hotels. Definitely would be a hotel I'd stay at in the future. Also liked that priority members got bottled water as well as a snack when you checked in. Def a plus for me.

The staff helped me find the best and cheapest way to get to New York and enjoyed a great visit of the big apple.
Recommendation about restaurants has been made that conducted to great experience at 200 yards from the hotel.
Definitely recommend this hotel.

Hotel is super clean and staff is very friendly. Breakfast was so delicious and the juice selection is great to have. JP is super cool to talk to at night. I couldn't sleep that night so i ended up talking to him. Hina made my check-in super quick. I love how they make there registration cards before 3 pm. David at the breakfast was super friendly to me and overall staff was super attentive. Overall i would definitely come back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay777 Excellent choice for a basic hotel.
We stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend. The hotel is small and on a major highway with alot of options for evening dining close by. Our room did face the highway but we only faintly hear some trucks go by, could not hear any major traffic. If you live in a city this will be quieter. The room and bathroom was small but very clean. The sink is not in the bathroom but out in the main room. This took a little getting used too but no complaints. The pillows on the bed were very small and not comfortable at all. This would be the only downfall to our stay. But we anticipated this from reading previous reviews and brought our own pillows. The bed was comfortable to sleep on. We have slept on better hotel beds but not many. Breakfast was the standard expanded continental hotel breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, several cerals, toast, muffins, tea and coffee. No waffle maker but they did have a pancake maker. There is no exercise room but you can use Retro Fitness down the street. Its as easy as showing up and showing your room key. Thats it, then you will have access to a full gym. If you want to do cardio go into the Theater Room. Treadmills and exercise bikes in front of a huge tv screen. They were showing a Steve Martin movie and time flew right by.
The staff here was extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk staff went out of their way to make sure everything was going well during our stay. The woman working in the breakfast area kept everything clean, hot and well stocked. We did not have any interaction will housekeeping.
If we come back to this area, my wife and I look forward to staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrL55 Great Service, Great Location and Very Consistent
I have been staying at this location for over a year now long-term for business and receive the same warm welcome each time. The incredibly friendly staff are always smiling and they take care of my requests promptly. They always hand me bottles of water when I ask. The complimentary hot breakfast is a great amenity to get my day started. I love that coffee is available at all times. The rooms are clean and most of the time I get an upgraded room which is very spacious. The beds are very comfortable and I sleep well. There are plenty of restaurants that are within walking distance which is really great. It's a pretty neat place which makes me feel cozy just like home.

Not being able to access the hotel bill on line at the Priority Club website is totally unsatisfactory. Hire someone to drag yourselves into the 21st Century.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shocks234 Horrific experience
I put in reservations for this location and due to a change in business plans I called to modifie by reservations; I called a day in advance to have on night cancelled and add a night on at the end of the week. The woman told me she would send an email confirming the cancelation which was great so I could send it to my company. After a few hours I had not received the email she claimed to have misspelled my name. Made correction and sent not a cancellation but a confirmation . Not realizing this as I had gone to sleep; I trusted she did what she said and cancelled my reservation. The day I was leaving for NJ I got a call from the hotel at 8am asking why I did not show for the night before....I was taken back the man over the phone told me I was charged I explained I cancelled opened the email to see she had not done what we agreed on .David claimed he had no phone numbers to resolve my issue and he was the only person there and could not help I had to wait till 3pm to speak it the original person I spoke to and due to a no show my reservations were then cancelled after numerous calls being put on hold and disconnected they refuse to issue a credit.
I called guest services got a great person who help me out. And will be receiving a refund in the mail. I have stayed in many Holiday Inn/express I am so surprised at this situation
I visit this area 6 times a year and would never look to this individual location again. I will stay in other IGH properties as they are great and they handled by claim professionally and with respect

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garry60 Very Accomodating and Helpful!
I unexpectedly needed to put up for the night while on business travel in northern NJ on the evening of 5-14-2013. A late afternoon client meeting extened well beyond what I had anticipated and I was too tired to drive all the way back to central CT. Consequently, I did not have any reservations.
I stopped by the Holiday Inn Express in Ramsey to see if they had any rooms. The parking lot was full and when I checked at the desk, they were indeed booked for the night.
Not to worry. The staff immediately called the Crown Plaza Inn in Suffern, NY, (about a 10-minute drive) made a reservation for me and I was even guaranteed the HI Express rate. The folks at the HI Express are great and I always feel like I am "family" when I stay there.
As Arnold would say "I'll be back"!
I also had a very pleasant exoerience at the Crown Plaza.

Front desk staff very friendly, hotel clean and tidy but the overall decor is rather dated and tired looking. The actuall room was the same.

Front desk staff were very helpful and acommodating. As a Priority Club Platinum member, I was given a free upgrade to a king suite without even asking for it. As usual at most Holiday Inns, the bedding was very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shesh Everything is perfect
We have stayed at this location many times over the past few years, and everything is consistently wonderful, from the very helpful and gracious staff to the great accommodations. There have never been any problems that the staff could not resolve easily and with calmness. Whenever we walk in, we are greeted warmly, as though we are old friends, and the staff always makes us feel welcome. We also look forward to the breakfast--everything is fresh and delicious, and very plentiful. The dining alcove is maintained very well, and it is a very pleasant experience--we also appreciate the coffee and cookies at bedtime! The rooms are very well appointed, clean, and very comfortable.
Overall, a great experience every time--thank you!

I'm not a fan of this area of New Jersey. I had to be there one night for business. It's crowded and very busy. But once I was off the highway and in the hotel things changed. It was clean, quiet and comfortable and it was easy to relax for the night.

Acceptable accommodations for the business traveler. Front desk staff ( young guys named Craig and Dave, I believe) on duty Feb 18-19 day shift were excellent. Otherwise, nothing too remarkable, good or bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garry60 Dependable HI Express Ramsey, NJ
I am a regular business traveler and have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Ramsey, NJ numerous times. I stayed there last week instead of booking a room at a property closer to Morristown, NJ because I know I will have a very nice experience at the Ramsey property. I would rather drive a half hour to get to the client location knowing I will have a great experience at HIE Ramsey. The staff is genuinely friendly and attentive - and they always thank me for choosing their property. The rooms are always clean and properly equipped. I like extra pillows - I request extra pillows during the on-line reservation process and I always get them. The breakfast selection is always robust and the food is good. The cinnamon buns are delicious. I will be staying at this property again soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jem813 Nice respite from the cold
I had a bunch of personal business to take care of and just wanted tthe lodging part to be a no brainer. Holiday Inn Express was great...comfortable bed, super quiet, nice enough TV and internet access. And the breakfast was much more than just cold cereal. It was great to have eggs and sausage before facing another busy day. The staff was super friendly and when I rushed out to catch my plane and left a couple sweaters they were nice enough to send them to me pronto.
Also the location on Route 17 near the train station made getting into the city no problem (if you don't want to drive in).
Thank you so much HIE Staff!
