The location near I-78 is good. Extremely quiet despite being in the Newark metro area. The exterior sidewalk area and parking lot were a little trashy, so I'd recommend daily attention to keep first impressions at a 9-10 rating.

I was there because of the Scrapbook Expo weekend!

Pros: Nice room
Cons: Food service could have been open later. Everything closed at 10 pm and I didn't get back from the Expo until midnight. That was the only problem.
Location: I had to go to CVS during my stay and found one located very close by.
The hotel was right across the street from the Convention Center where the Scrapbook Expo was during the weekend. It was very convenient.

Nice hotel with friendly staff

Pros: It was convenient and had reasonable rates.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: I assume if you're looking at this hotel it's close to something you want to do already.
This was a nice hotel and our stay was pleasant and easy. When we checked in they moved our room to avoid having us on the same floor as a large group that was staying there to prevent us being annoyed by any potential noise.

perfect accomodation except no internet in the room as promised.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Hotel promised free internet in the room, but it stopped working and the staff couldn't figure out how to fix the problem. I needed the internet that night for a presentation I needed to make early in the morning. I couldn't wait until 7AM to have the problem fixed.

Well worth the price

Over the past few years I have had to travel to this area every 6 weeks and I have stayed at just about every hotel from Rahway, Woodbridge, Avenel, South Brunswick, Edison and now Somerset. After discovering what Travel Website is able to continually obtain this hotel for (using the secret location menu) I truly recommend it. This is an older Holiday Inn but with many of the amenities of the new ones. The rooms are very clean, given the recent out break of bed bugs, I am very cautious. The staff is friendly and everything is close by. You could easily pay twice the amount at the other hotels for less across the street and right next door, but what are you truly paying for. The only draw back are some of the clients who truly party at the restaurant/bar on the first floor on Friday and Saturdays. I would rate the hotel a 3 1/2 star out of five.
