Stayed here with my husband & 2 small children the night before we flew out of the Newark airport. Booked through AAA and got a $159.99 Park & Fly package. An outstanding value for a night in this hotel, which included breakfast...plus we were able to leave our vehicle for the week while we were gone. Wish we had the opportunity to have breakfast (as we heard it was very good)...however we had to leave earlier than it was available the next morning.
Plugged the address into our GPS and had no issues finding the hotel. Upon arrival...the hotel lobby is warm, inviting, & charming. Staff was extremely helpful & friendly. We used the pool and it was very clean and refreshing after a long drive. Also used the laundry facilities (just the dryer)...and ran into a slight issue. But a quick trip downstairs and a staff member immediately followed me upstairs to help remedy the problem. Excellent customer service! Wi-Fi available in room worked well. Fitness Center looked nice, but didn't use. There were computers available for use in the lobby...as well as a small market with snacks available for purchase. They pretty much have everything you could possibly need here!
There is an indoor mall/outlet complex directly across the street...which we didn't get a chance to visit, but would have been very convenient to do some shopping if we had time. There are also 2 restaurants in the adjacent parking lot (IHop & Ruby Tuesdays) which were very convenient to walk to for dinner.
The van service to the airport was on time and very convenient...however, I will recommend that you be curb-side at least 15 minutes early...as it was just a VAN that shuttled us to the airport, and it was full (even at 6 AM). Not sure how many vans they run... so if you have to make your flight, definitely make sure you get there early.
Room, itself, was on the small side for 4 of us (with 2 queen beds)...but clean, nicely decorated, and beds very comfortable. Perfectly adequate. The toiletries they provide are high quality/brand name... which was also a nice touch.
As we drove through some sections of Newark that didn't look the safest... we never felt anything but safe staying at this hotel.
Upon our return flight into the Newark Airport... I called the hotel to ask how to find their shuttle. They instructed me to take the Air Train to the main terminal...and go to location "E4". Their shuttle picks up on the "15" and the "45" of each hour. Couldn't have been easier.
Had a wonderful experience at this Country Inn & Suites... and will absolutely stay here again next time I fly out of Newark. Highly recommend!
