Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn NEWARK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT Hotel
Not bad, but the food could be improvedfrom JoeTrainer
Great--If Conveneince Has No Place in Your Plansfrom steve39
Two major problems that rule it out for plane travelers.
--Arriving by plane (or train) you will need to take the AirTrain to Stop P4. And there you may have to wait up to 40 minutes (I did in four separate experiences in Aug 2007) for the bus to come to take you to the property. This may be longer than a non-rush hour cab from New York. Most other airport or close proximity properties have their vehicles arriving every 15-20 minutes. The actual ride to the hotel is 10 minutes, but to save money the bus stops at two other hotels. IN short, it took me close to an hour each time I went from P4 to the Holiday Inn. While you can call and ask where the van is, the answer is always the same--five minutes away.
--Spending a day in the city. If you plan is to fly out in the evening and leave your bags at the hotel, guess again. They claim that TSA does not allow checkrooms (it allows them at every other airport hotel I have stayed at since 9/11). I went through a multi stage diagreement, which took more than 30 minutes. I was told 1) You must take your bags. 2) You can leave them in your room until 6 PM for $69.95. 3) You can try to leave them at the front desk in the morning (not secure), but we can't promise it. 4) You can leave them in your room.
SO if P4 is necessary to get to and from the property or you need a check room, forget this.
If you do not, the hotel is in good shape, the restaurant had good, but overpriced food and there is fine concession to buy simple food to take to your room.
The hotel is between a railroad yard and highway, but there was no significant noise.
Only if you have no other choicefrom PBearSingapore
The furnishings however are old and some things need better maintenance. The bathroom floor also feels sticky. There is also no breakfast included in the price.
I also took the hotel shuttle from the airport during prime hours and thought the frequency was alright. The shuttle however would be best served with some cleaning.
Overall, if you have a better choice, you would not wish to stay here.
OK if you can find itfrom wizbud
*NOTHING* around this hotel and HORRIBLE shuttle servicefrom bscrim
The price may be right to be close to the city, but you're trapped there. The rooms are fine, butif you don't mind being nextdoor to a prison and there is nowhere you can walk to.
The shuttle from the airport took over an hour one time and a good 55 minutes an other time. Every time I called I got a new excuse.
When I complained at the desk about the shuttle, I got yet more excuses.
Beware of the shuttlefrom darren022
Good Choice for Short Stayfrom alaskancrzr
Less expensive way to see NYCfrom ransonju
The only complaint we had was with the return shuttle service on our second night. We returned to the airport after taking the train back from Manhattan and the shuttle didn't show up for over an hour - it was supposed to arrive every 20-30 minutes (I think...it has been a few months!). We ended up pleading with the driver of the Marriott shuttle and walking from there (next door). There were some very unhappy people who had just arrived from out of town and just wanted to get to the hotel.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to see New York, but not pay NYC hotel prices!
Fair dealfrom DSXM
The check-in was efficient and problem free. We were given a free drink at the bar and a voucher for the sudries store. Our room was your standard king room with fully functioning amenities. Everything was clean and items were restocked if we used them. The wall unit heat/ac was easy to operate and kept the room comfortable.
The only downside was that the breakfast in the main restaurant was overpriced and my wife found the food inedible. One morning we grabbed a pastry at the coffee bar and one moring we ventured to the IHOP out on Route 22.
We drove to Newark Penn Station and parked for free in the Ironbound section to get to the city. As another reviewer mentioned, getting to the hotel can be tricky if you aren't quick to read the signs or happen to make a wrong turn.
Right price for commuting to NYCfrom AnonVirginia
One of the days of our visit we drove to Liberty Park, NJ to take the ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. We had been told that the ferries leaving from the Jersey side would be less crowded than the ones from Battery Park. We had no way to compare, but walked right on the next ferry each time we were ready to leave.
On the good side, the hotel had very nice public spaces, and we had a decent, clean room, which did not suffer from airport noise. The hotel shuttle worked well for us, although we did not try to use it late at night or early in the morning. While we were waiting for or riding the shuttle, our daughter got a kick out of chatting with the many airline flight crews.
On the minus side, the beautifully tiled showers had ledge to hold shampoo bottles or soap - strange and very inconvenient. The water pressure in the shower was the lowest I'd ever experienced, more of a morning "trickle" than a shower. Also, there are NO nearby eating places. We solved this by eating in the city before we returned to the hotel, except for the night we did Ellis Island. That night the hotel directed us to a small town about 10 miles away, which was nothing to write home about. We chose a Ruby Tuesday as being the best of limited options.
I had read other reviews about how hard it was to find this property, but we had no trouble, using the directions from the hotel's website. Although, coming north out of the tool booth, you really had to be ready for an *immediate* right exit.
Although it would have been fun to stay in NYC, the extra commuting time was worth the $500 savings for us. Flying in (no parking fees) and a shorter stay reduces this benefit quickly. For instance, I estimate a 2-night stay (Sat-Sun with no parking) to save only about $100.
