                  There were roaches in my room. They were the little ones. You know the kind that will sneak into you luggage and take a trip with you back home.

                  Roaches, No fire extinguisher, and did I say roaches.

                  I always stay at this hotel because of its location being close to New York City. It has been recently renovated, and although it appears to be very average from the lobby, the room are actually quite nice and very clean. The location of this hotel makes it perfect for visiting Manhattan by car via the Lincoln Tunnel, mta buses (a bus stop is a 5 minute walk), or it is also only a 20 minute drive to the nj path train stations. It is conveniently situated on Route 3 west in Clifton, nj, right next to the Tick-Tock Diner.

                  Sometimes the front desk staff can seem a bit uninterested in you (not very communicative) and not very adept at what they are doing. Overall though, everyone I've met at the desk has been at least satisfactory to deal with.

                  Staff changed our room. We arrived around 5 pm and were checked into a room that was not yet cleaned, the toilet was backed up and the refrigerator did not work. New room was nice.

                  Air conditioning and comfortable pillows

                  This is absolutely the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. As soon as you walk in, there is a weird smell. The front desk staff is so unfriendly and unpleasant. They sent us to an unclean room, then to a room that was occupied. The hallways were not well-ventilated. Suppose to have a non-smoking room, but it smelt like smoke.There was no coffee pot, ice machine on the floor did not work. Bugs on the bed and carpet! Card to enter the room did no work at one point. Towels were stained and rough to use. Housekeeping did not speak English. Couldn't wait to leave this place!!!

                  I liked the free wifi access and the spacious size of my room.

                  Te customer service is horrible.

                  The bed and room confort were great, eventhough the iron and coffee machine were not working..

                  Day time receptionist was too rude. My room key havent opened the door two times. 4Th floor wending machine wasnt working. Also, the iron and coffee machine too.

                  Hotel is value for money but staff should be more courteous.

                  The attitude of staff is dry which does not leave a good impression about the hotel

                  Nothing it was loud and you could hear everything from the neighboring guests toilet flush to every door on the floor shut anf open

                  Its proximity to shopping centers and restaurants as well as its closeness to New York City

                  The front desk service was very poor. They hardly answered the help desk phone.

                  the other guests. and the balconies made it possible to meet people.

                  my room was not cleaned once during my stay. i had to call down to ask for towels on my last day because i never received clean ones. the woman at the desk when i was signing in was rude. and didn't know how to do her job. i was told that i never made a reservation when i had gotten a confirmation email four months prior. i didn't feel safe staying there because when i left my room key in my room i went to the desk to get a replacement. i was not asked any information other than what room i was staying in. they would have handed a key out to anyone. my room keys just stopped working on the second day of my visit. i had to replace them.

                  My friend stayed at a Hyatt for $50, for $76, this Hotel was disgusting, they advertise HBO, no cable or HBO hairdryer was broken, closet door was broken so you could not use the closet, it was the worst hotel I ever stayed in, when I called the front desk about the TV, they said they would send someone to check, no-one showed up and the lobby looked like they had coffee in the morning but at 8 am the carefs were empty and the lobby smelled awful.

                  Nothing

                  No tv. Staff not interested. Poor electrical setup with wires all sticking out

                  The only thing I liked about staying there was that it was close to the event I was there to attend.

                  When I went to get into bed I found that the sheets were dirty. Whomever had cleaned the room never bothered to change the sheets before making the bed. There was no staff to change sheets, I had to switch rooms. Both of the rooms I was in were filthy. The front desk clerk was sound asleep and couldn't hear the phone ringing. He was also unable to give me directions to the hotel from where I was when I got lost. I will never stay there, or in any Howard Johnson's again.
