I was annoyed when we arrived because I had called ahead to ask if there was parking, and was told yes, for $5 extra. What the person didn't explain is that it is not guaranteed; we arrived very late (past midnight) and were told there were no parking spots left. The guy at the reception desk was very apologetic and reassured us that the night watchman would keep an eye on our car, which we street-parked next to the hotel. It worked out fine, but I do think the hotel should warn people who ask about parking that it is limited.
This hotel is in a not so nuce area of Newark, but its less than 10 minutes from the airport, which is what we wanted. When we first arrived we were a bit put off by the neigborhood, but the rooms turned out to be a nice surprise. They were large and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Its an old-fashioned, simple, indpendent hotel; the kind of place that is rare to come by today. The "bang for the buck" was excellent; we got one room for ourselves and a little suite (room 168) for our children, who actually each had their own room and shared a bathroom. Each room (the children's suite counted as one room) including taxes, was only 85 dollars. The staff people were very nice.
