the room was very nice
staff was horrible. wanted to charge me 30 a night per child extra. also was visiting with relatives who lived in the area, and staff came to our room three times after viewing my two relatives come to our room to get us. kept asking us if they were staying too. night manager got very rude with me about me having my two kids. he had to go call manager to verify that i had bad extra for them. also telephone cord ripped out of phone. outlet hanging out of wall too. smoke detector didn't work either.
Good public transportation to NY but horrible to other places in New Jersey
Do not have an elevator to the second floor so you have to lift your luggage all the way up
Very quiet and comfortable once we settled in for the night
We booked a non-smoking room but all smelled of smoke. We were told that people smoke anyway so they put ashtrays in all of the rooms even non-smoking. We tried several rooms before we found one that was less offensive than the others. We almost did not stay because of this.
