Clean Rooms+Good Food=Great Hotel A review of Country Inn & Suites Newark Airport
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.
