To say our journey to New York started with drama would be accurate. First off the car that was to drive us south towards the airport ran out of battery. This was followed by Fraser's seat on the plane having bed bugs and him not feeling well enough to eat once we'd landed. Not the best start to the holiday we'd been hoping for but hopefully meant …

Today we traversed the many expressways to our hotel in Elizabeth, NJ to await the arrival of our traveling companions, Patti and Alan. We detoured for a surprise visit to cousins, Arlene, Alan and their son Seth. We visited their new huge office and congratulated them on the recent business successes. They treated us to a working lunch and the after lots of laughs we traveled about 11/2 hours to Elizabeth. Once there we ...

Friendly staff. Great room. Nice pool. Yummy breakfast. All in all a good stay with a useful transfer system from the airport. The complementary goodie bag on check-in was a nice touch. The staff were willing to help with any problems.

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites Newark Airport Elizabeth
After reading other reviews, I was prepared for rude staff. However they didn't appear to be working while we visited in early November! Staff were helpful in explaining how the airport shuttle worked and also how to get to NYC via train. Nothing seemed a problem to any of the staff and they were all courteous.
Excellent, excellent, excellent, cannot fault the hotel
This was an excellent hotel, I could not fault any service. It was beautifully clean with exceptional facilites, including swimming pool, and gym. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, with so much choice, healthy or fattening it was the guests decision. The staff were so helpful, and made me feel like a celebrity. Travelling alone I had intended only staying one night, as I passed through Newark Airport, but I cancelled a hotel booking in New York and stayed at the Country Inn instead for a total of six nights. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the free shuttle to the airport, it was a little hit and miss on occasions. Allow an extra half hour to get to the airport, and you will be fine.
We stayed at the hotel one night for their park and fly rate.
The entrance looks great but the front desk staff did not smile. This girl put us into a smoking room and would not change, telling me the non smoking room all sold out. I asked for a two double bed non smoking room but I was told the room was the only one left. I had a feeling that I was not welcome.
Nice big hotel, good staff
We stayed here for a night on Sep 5. This is a good hotel with friendly staff. The rooms were good and so was the breakfast. There weren't a whole lot of places to eat around this hotel. Good place to stay if you are visiting New York. You could drive just a bit and take the free Staten Island Ferry or the Statue of Liberty tour from the NJ side.
I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites from July 29 - 30 and again Aug.3-5. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. A new hotel, the rooms were large and clean, as well as bathroom. Liked the ironing-board and iron, as well as a safe in the closet. Liked the added touch of whirlpool and swimming pool. Also, laundry room. Impressed with the continental PLUS style breakfast. Waffles, french toast, boiled eggs, cereals, yogurt, pastries and bagels, along with juice, tea, & coffee. You could get a good start to the day with breakfast. Location good for me....convenient airport nearby and free shuttle provided by the hotel to and from airport, the Jersey Garden Mall (you could walk to the mall across the street), Ikea, and the airport train station to NY. Execellent!
Kept a group here two separate times in June, 2004. Good and bad. Good...hotel is very nice, rooms are very good, nice continental breakfast Plus and very good location as it's about five minute walk to a very large mall.
This hotel was really great. Very clean, the staff was very friendly, and the rooms were spacious. The breakfast was very good. This hotel is definately a good price for what you get. We had a very wonderful stay and will be back.
I stayed in this hotel 2 nights during an organised trip to NYC last November (I guess Manhattan hotels were too expensive.) I stayed in a single room but it was very large. The bathroom was spacious (and, most important, it was very clean) and it had nice fluffy towels. The staff was friendly and the free breakfast was amazing: waffle maker, juice bar, 5-6 different choices of breads and cereals...and...doughnuts! Oh my...they were heaven! It really gave our group a boost of energy before heading out for some major sightseeing! The only "problems" present at this hotel (as mentioned by the previous reviewer) were the noise factor (airport nearby) and the surrounding area (or lack thereof). I wished there had been some sort of supermarket or convenience store nearby. There's no minibar in the room (thank God...I'm sure I would have run up quite a tab). But they do sell a few snack options in the lobby. Oh, and we got a complimentary copy of USA Today on Saturday morning. All in all, staying at this hotel was a positive experience: nothing too fancy but clean rooms, good food and a friendly staff. If you don't mind staying far from the city lights, then I would recommend this hotel.
Great staff good value
Very good value for a typical chain motel-clean, nice new rooms and a good price; great breakfast; fast trip to the airport; most of the staff went out of their way to help me. Only negatives - a little airplane noise but not bad (I always bring earplugs), the mall looks further away than it sounds to walk for food but they have a shuttle; and the NJ add-on taxes -ouch!
