Positive Reviews

Good location, value for money

Guests described the hotel as a quaint, quiet and a perfect hotel, with the decor matching the theme. Located off the Raritan Center, the location of the hotel is good. It’s a short drive from Newark Penn Station from where guests could catch a quick PATH Train to Newark. The business center in the premises is convenient to print important documents. Wi-Fi in the rooms is good. Clean and reasonably priced, it is good value for money. Guests enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a hard day of work. The hotel also offers bubble soap and flower petals. Guests also felt that the area is safe for families.

Friendly staff

The front desk staff completed the Check-in fairly quickly. They explained everything guests wanted to know. They also assisted them with the places of interest and local attractions, and the easiest way to reach there.

Good breakfast

Guests felt that the breakfast offered in the Indian restaurant was reasonably priced. Waffles were a great hit with the kids. Guests could also try out other good options nearby. They felt that the bar and the restaurant added value to the complex.

Negative Reviews

Unhappy with the events room

Guests who attended the catered wedding said that their experience was not good. The carpet was not installed properly, and many guests tripped over it. The glasses were unclean with lipstick stains. The table cloth and the chair pads were also stained. Guests also noted that the staff touched the food with their bare hands, thus ignoring the basic sanitary procedures. They also complained that the restaurant rooms were infested with bed bugs.
