I'm not joking about the title of the review. I don't think I've ever stayed in a worse place. I took a group of 22, so I had 6 rooms. ALL of them were bad. Two rooms had to be reassigned because AC wasn't working in the first ones. Wallpaper falling off the walls. Tiles broken. Stains on the floors. Sinks not draining. Broken shower curtains. Rooms with odors. This place has it all. After being the Dominican Republic for a week, under more primitive conditions, I didn't even take a shower at this place. Decided to wait until we reached our final destination.
Although I didn't feel like we were in danger (some of the ladies in our group did), the place certainly doesn't make you feel comfortable.
The people who checked us in were very nice and were helpful with the room reassignments (the lobby was very small, hot and had a bad odor). The van drivers were surely and rude - one asking me for a tip when he didn't even touch my bag in or out of the shuttle van. Another giving our ladies a harsh look when they screamed as he barely avoided slammed into another vehicle.
It's very convenient to EWR, but that is the ONLY thing this place has going for it.
