    « Nice place »

    The hotel was clean and staff was courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit hard to my taste. All amenities in room worked great. It was close to the wedding we went to. Exterior and interior was clean and inviting.

    Came to New Jersey to attend a family memorial. Hotel location was very convenient and central to where we needed to be. Hotel was clean, quiet, and suited our needs very well. Would highly recommend the Best Western in Murray Hill.

    « Perfectly met my needs »

    I stayed overnight for business and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My room was clean, spacious, and had all the amenities I needed. It was quiet and I slept well. The breakfast was better than I expected and I was refreshed and ready for work the next day.

    « Excellent in Every Way »

    One of the best hotel experiences and best values we've had. From the room and super comfortable bed and pillows to the excellent breakfast. The location was close to family, restaurants and other conveniences. The area was beautiful.

    « Wedding Stay »

    Hotel was good, comfortable rooms we reserved 2 rooms for 2 nights. Staff was good and helpful. Breakfast was poor. Ice cold pancakes despite just being brought out. Small selection of choices. Breakfast staff seemed to be understaffed.

    « good rate »

    clean rooms, nice friendly staff, close to Nokia for interviews. I would recommend this place to a friend. Very nice restaurant on the hotel property and just down the street in a shopping plaza. The parking lot is in front of the main entrance and very convenient.

    « After Wedding Stay »

    We booked this on the website(as recommended by the venue) to stay at after our daughter's wedding. From setting up the arrangements by phone to the morning after breakfast the staff & personal at this hotel could not have done enough for me my family & guest. The rooms( booked 15 rooms) were clean and available when the guest from out of state arrived early that day. The front desk worked with my wife to give out welcome bags, Jayne was more then helpful when working with my wife & daughter. My family, friends and I have no complaints about the stay here. My wife & I may just book a night to enjoy the restaurant & relax. Thanks to all at the Best Western Murray Hill for making this part of the wedding stress free.

    « I wrote a review on the wrong hotel »

    This Best Western is A+ for everything from the service to the restaurant and more. It's great to have a restaurant on site s owe don't have to go out again and it was the same lace for a free hot/cold breakfast. The rooms were great and the beds comfortable. I had given this place a bad review but I thought we were at a differant hotel. Again this if A+ on everything

    « homey in every sense »

    Check-in late evening and was met by a charming lady. She was attentive and processed my check in quickly. The place has seen better days with wall paper bathroom and popcorn ceiling.but overall it is reasonably clean and feel homey. Breakfast was included. There is a shuttle to surrounding, nearby locations. .

    « Horrible housekeeping »

    Housekeeping was horrible.One morning the beds were very sloppy and garbage was not picked up and the pillows were left on the floor. The next morning only 1 of the beds were made and still garbage around. Not even sure if sinks were cleaned Pillows still on the floor. Other than housekeeping we didn't have any complaints. This is my first time to complaining about Best Western but we will continue to stay in a Best Western.

    « a bit expensive, bad a/c, otherwise ok »

    hotel is overall very nice, decent restaurant, very nice bed/pillows. and room is large. a/c blew moist air, and exercise room is a bit small for the size of hotel. location is good, we were surprised there were not more hotel options near all the corporate offices in this part of nj

    « Neat place »

    The hotel is clean and neat. Well laid out, but as a somewhat handicapped person, the bathroom was a little tight. All handicapped rooms were taken. Bed was most comfortable. The hotel was pleasantly quiet even though fully booked.

    « Rooms smell - there may be mold in the air »

    Impossible to sleep due to smell. Room air is really bad. The airconditioning unit pushed bad smell air to the room. Hard to breathe due to bad smell I do not recommend this hotel. They need to fix the smell problem immediately

    « Good value/ great location »

    We stayed at this hotel for a family reunion. The hotel staff was all very professional and helpful. Breakfast included hot items - eggs and ham and oatmeal in addition to dry cereals, bread and sweet rolls and fruit. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Our reunion was in Summit, NJ and the hotel was very convenient.

    « Comfy hotel with great restaurant »

    Nice room, well equipped and clean if a little unusual layout. Wine at check-in and cookies available later. Plenty parking but your gps may find it difficult to get here - use Google maps which finds it easily. Convenient for Bell Labs (Nokia).

    Up here with several family members. Rooms are good size, clean and comfortable. Front desk staff are very helpful. Full service including room service. Had a whirlpool tub during a previous stay. Quite an enjoyable place.

    « Wonderful stay and incredible breakfast 8.20.16 »

    The room was very clean, had a couch, desk, microwave, good size refrigerator, nice bathroom and the room even included a Keurig coffee maker. We had the king size bed, very nice. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding. It included hot oatmeal with many toppings, 4 or 5 different kinds of cereals, pancakes and waffles with fresh strawberries, rasberries, and black berries for toppings, home fried potatoes, eggs, sausage, bread pudding, toast, bagels, donuts, fresh fruit, juices and coffee and everything was presented beautifully. Enrique, the breakfast and restaurant manager, was there to greet us and show us all the selections. He does an incredible and amazing job there and I can't say enough how nice the breakfast was that he and his staff prepared. In my opinion, you won't be disappointed. It was a very quiet hotel. Parking lot was full but we never heard other guests

    « Nice place, people & food »

    We arrived at 10 pm & left early the following day but the bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom is pretty swanky. The staff is very friendly and overall I was pleased. Extra pillows in rooms as well. The breakfast was great: scrambled eggs, waffles, oatmeal, fruit, sausage...it was very filling and offered a lot, even bread pudding. The fitness room was small but offered what I needed.

    « Breakfast at Moe's restaurant lacks items »

    Items which were offered before, are not offered now during breakfast at Moe's restaurant. Items like bottled water, bananas, large selection of fruit yogurt, are not offered any more.I was expecting a better breakfast to be served at the restaurant.It has gotten worse.

    « 2 weeks business trip »

    I stayed for two weeks, the hotel is clean, breakfast is very good and complimentary, rich of cold and hot food, sweet and salty. Waiters and waitresses know what to do, always nice with customers, I appreciated that. good Laundry service, guest attendant always takes care of your problems and try the best way to solve them.

    « Nice condo to stay with family »

    Nice hotel with kitchen which helps us to stay close to the home cooked food... clean, quiet and safe environment makes the trip a memorable one.. The staff was good and co-operative..only concerns is that you get all kinds of smells from almost every room when you walk on the hallway...some are delicious but some are :)

    « just a great stay »

    Great hotel--we came to help care for a new granddaughter and spent 2.5 weeks here--it was a delightful experience from Waiter Enrique's wonderful smile and helpful service at breakfast to Blanch's fresh baked cooking at night. The hotel was very clean and comfortable.

    « Pretty good one-night stay »

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Murray Hill Hotel for one night during a recent road trip. I chose this hotel based primarily on its location; we stayed here after visiting a relative in nearby Millington and were heading into NYC the next day. We were also considering taking the train into NYC (though we didn't), so the nearby Murray Hill train station was another plus. We had a pretty good experience overall. The decor in the hotel common areas and rooms is a bit dated, but the light-colored wood used throughout gives the hotel a very warm and homey feel. The lobby area is in an open two-story atrium, and the warm woods and large stone fireplace give it the feel of a ski chalet. The room had a large mini-fridge and microwave, and a comfortable bed (the pillows were a bit small for a king bed). The bathroom sink and counter were a bit small, but the night-light bathroom light switch was a nice touch. The water pressure in the shower could have been better but it was okay. The AC unit is under the window and the fan runs continuously when the AC is on. The window curtains don't come down all the way because of the AC, so they don't block morning daylight very well. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and served in Moe's Bistro, located in the hotel near the lobby. Moe's has live music on Friday and Saturday nights, but when we went to check it out on Saturday night around 9:30 or so, they were already closed. Our stay at the Best Western was pleasant and we didn't have any issues, and it was reasonably priced. We would stay there again if we were spending the night in the area.

    « wedding party hotel »

    The hotel could not have been nicer except for the odor in the room. The staff was great, the service was excellent. Everyone in the hotel was very accommodating. I would visit the hotel again but in a different room on the 2nd floor not the first.

    « Still Aging and Same Issues »

    I have reviewed this property in the past, as I have stayed here multiple times over the years. That said, two years had passed since my last stay, so I'll add a new update. For good or bad, all my observations from the past carry through to this review. The hotel is old but holding up. They do a good job of keeping things looking good, but you can tell the building is quite old. As has been the case during every single of my past visits, the hotel was hosting large groups of wedding guests. This time, there were two separate groups. The hotel must have been fully booked, as they called a few days before our arrival to confirm our intention to come, even though I'd prepaid the room. Still, check-in was smooth and efficient. When I saw the posted schedule of van services shuttling guests to the two weddings, I had fears of again hearing scores of people arriving back late from the receptions, but this time I only heard one group of people come in, so not too bad. The rooms are large, but the bathrooms -- even though they were recently updated to include very dark formica-like coverings -- are still cramped. The makeovers, in fact, make them look almost dingy, with the dark brown colors. My complaints about the stay carry over from previous stays. First, the beds are small. The rooms could easily accommodate two queen-size beds, but they have full-size mattresses, which are snug for two people sharing. The biggest issue remains with the HVAC units. Even though it was not humid during our stay, our room was damp. I cannot figure out how this hotel still has issues with removing humidity from their rooms. The windows were fogged inside and the sheets felt damp. The bright spot remains the complimentary breakfast. Selection was a bit reduced from our last visit, but it still included hot and cold items, and lots of seating. If you have to be in New Providence, then stay here, but weigh location and cost very carefully.

    « front desk Management lacks professionalism »

    I blocked rooms at this hotel for my wedding in late May. I was told that with ten rooms booked we would have a complimentary standard room for the bride and groom for 1 night. With this knowledge, I stayed two nights. The day after my wedding when I was checking out, I realized that the hotel had charged for my full stay, despite the fact that I had ten rooms booked for that evening with all my guests. I wanted to dispute it but was told that JANE the front desk manager would not be in until Tuesday since she was out for Memorial Day. But since I was flying out to my honeymoon the next day did not have a chance to make the call. When I returned from my honeymoon to dispute the charges with JANE the manager, she literally scoffed at me with a snooty faux british accent and stated that I would need TEN rooms booked (NOT including the bride and groom's room) , and since that meant technically I had only NINE booked rooms, she would not honor my 1 complimentary night's stay. It is unreasonable and I expressed that I had brought their hotel a lot of business that day and had also ordered catering at their restaurant in the lobby for my guests , and she interrupted and said, "Im sorry you feel that way but your room booking was very small, there are other guests who blocked like 30 rooms" and essentially they didnt give THEM any preferential treatment. So now this made me feel very insulted that because I only had brought them business of TEN ROOMS it was small for them and not worth their effort and energy to treat us with reasonable care and consideration. I expressed I would not recommend their hotel to future guests and that I would file a formal complaint. JANE the manager scoffed and said that she was confident that their hotel will continue to get a lot of business and that I was free to put my review out there. So here I am. This hotel is nothing fancy. Do not settle for this place if you are getting married in the area. You do not want your handsome groom carrying you through the door of this shoddy sad poorly managed establishment. Their wifi did not work. Their "GYM" was a disgrace and was neglected and poor quality. Please look elsewhere.

    « lovely hotel in a lovely neighborhood »

    New Jersey is MUCH prettier than what you see from the interstate highways. Very nice hotel in a very nice neighborhood. One of the very best free breakfasts I've ever seen at a Best Western. The bed room was a tad small, but the suite style made up for that.

    4
    « Nice & Clean »

    Staff was very accommodating and efficient. Room was fine - could have used more light at the desk. Bathroom was okay - but more counter space would have been nice; fan & heater were quite noisy. Closet area was very tight. Yes, I would come back here.

    « Really Good »

    Very clean, in good condition, friendly staff, decent complimentary breakfast. So we have been to New Providence many times, and this will now be where we stay. We were pleasantly surprised with our room and the complimentary breakfast. Nice area and walking distance to stores

    « Overall, a good experience, but could benefit from some small improvements »

    I stayed here for three nights while in the area on business. The staff are friendly, helpful and service at the desk was prompt and efficient. The room was clean and decently furnished, and the wifi worked well. The heating/air conditioning unit was a little frustrating as it was difficult to get a setting that was comfortable - it could use updating to a more modern unit. The included breakfast buffet was serviceable, but not exceptional and was the other area where a small improvement would be much appreciated. Other than those two items, it was a pleasant and comfortable stay.

    « New Providence NJ »

    Very well priced hotel convenient to major highways while being in a very pleasant suburb in the Summit/Chatham/Morristown area. Direct train service to NYC. Decor is dated but it's clean and safe. If you need an upscale experience this isn't it. If, however, you want all the benefits of a good hotel in this area at a reasonable cost - this hotel is an excellent value.

    « Dated and stinky, but clean and cheep »

    This place needs a major overhaul. The staff, service and facilities are fine (though nobody overly impressed us) for the price (pretty cheap), and its not dirty. Just very dated and carpets and tapestries in the rooms smell of old days when smoking was permitted.

    5
    « Stay here often to visit family »

    Have been staying here for one night one to three times monthly. Service is also great, professional; check in is fast and easy; rooms are very clean; breakfast is delicious. Internet service is easy to use. Love this hotel.

    « First Best Western Plus Stay »

    Everything was great, internet was decently fast, bed was conformable, they give lots of pillows which is a huge plus (we booked the king bed), comfortable and clean sheets/comforter, temperature easy to adjust, outlets everywhere bathroom was impeccable. Breakfast was served in the restaurant, everything was perfect except they id not have OJ or Apple juice which seemed strange, maybe they ran out for the duration of my stay. But other than that it was a great experience.

    « Pleasant staff, great dinner, bad internet »

    The restaurant is pricey but dinner was surprisingly good. 5 of us stayed in different rooms, all had problems with wifi. Speed 2-60mb. Internet access problems. I'll give it one more try the next time I'm in the area. Staff was polite. Exercise room is weak. Weights to 8 lbs. A couple cardio machines and a couple resistance machines.

    « Tired hotel, in need of updates »

    The heater was extremely noisy, squealing all night. The TV remote was worn badly so that a few buttons didn't work. The shower head only allowed a trickle despite very high water pressure in the tub. The electrical outlets were so worn that my chargers would only connect in one outlet in the room. It's just tired. Please update it! It was quiet though. And the staff was excellent.

    « Comfortable, convenient, kind! »

    We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the room was clean and attractive, the staffers at the front desk and in the restaurant were kind, and the food at the bistro was delicious (terrific dinner and fantastically varied breakfast options). Best of all, the restaurant had a quiet (you could still hold a conversation easily) but smart and accomplished entertainer, the singer/guitarist/songwriter Joe Janci, whose music was truly enjoyable. A delight all around!

    « Family stay whilst visiting family in new providence »

    Comfortable, well equipped hotel. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. Everything was clean and set up to create a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were very helpful. We had a slight issue with GF/vegan breakfast options and the restaurant staff were unable to help. We had to buy our own and take it in each morning in the end. I wouldn't be able to recommend that you ate there if you were coeliac. The other breakfast options were fine though.

    My family of 6 (4 kids ranging from 7-13) needed to stay at the Murray Hill Inn because our house was still under construction when we came back from vacation over the summer. Due to the construction taking much longer than anticipated, our 2 week stay was extended to 6 weeks. Each and every staff member was excellent! The room was cleaned every day to perfection. They could not have been more accommodating to us. Everyone was super nice and made us feel right at home! The free breakfast was amazing!! Thanks to Kerry and his awesome staff!!! The Cook Family

    « Good place, a little dated. »

    Hits and misses. Bed - super comfortable. I would like to own that bed. Tv controller is "easy clean" hopefully they do, first time I've seen those so it was a nice touch. The grounds and hotel. Rooms look remodeled. The covered drive up is probably nice when its raining and you have old people in the car. The free coffee is good. Misses. We were lucky it wasn't colder, when the heater (or AC I guess in summer) comes on it was loud enough to wake you early or keep you awake when trying to get to sleep. Water pressure was terrible as was the crappy dollar store shower head. Tried to get it off of "cold mist" but then it seemed to only dribble. GYM has a treadmill and elliptical and a DANGEROUS looking weight machine. Weights on one of the sets have pin badly pulled, like if you tried to fix it so you could use it you could crush a finger. And a sort of odd these days sauna. I enjoyed the Sauna - nice throw back to the 70's. I would say it is about as nice as a 1970's vintage hotel could be - its clean. Its not on Route 22 (bonus) Most of the staff was welcoming and friendly. ESPECIALLY the breakfast lady- she seemed to be happy you were there. Nice that they have computers in the upstairs hall to use if you don't have your own along. We arrived to an empty hotel on Christmas day - earlier than check in time - and were told to come back later - but that the reservation was all set. Fine a policy is a policy - just don't go out of your way. The later check in guy was a little befuddled seemed to be running the credit card through a lot (10 times through the scanner?). The breakfast stands out as a highlight- included and well better than most hotel breakfasts... eggs, sausage, potatoes, oatmeal, usual stuff too. Yes I would stay here again.

    Had to pick up my daughter from Philly from school and we live in Massachusetts so knowing it was too much to drive back I decided to stay overnight in familiar surroundings to cut down on the remainder of the trip (I grew up in that town).

    « Great Repeat Stay at Best Western Murray Hill »

    This is our second stay in two years at this hotel. All of the staff are friendly and go out of their way to help. Our king room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Our room had nice size refrigerator and microwave. There was a nice variety at breakfast and the woman managing the breakfast area was friendly and very helpful. The new restaurant Moe's was terrific. Lots of great unique food choices. The Mediterranean Pizza was terrific. Make sure you take home some of their hummus! I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Needs a remodel »

    From the moment you drive-up to this hotel you know it's not going to be good. Then you walk into the lobby, and it's worse. Our particular room had a strong mildew odor that made all of our clothes smell after we left. The whole hotel needs a remodel, though.

    Great hotel in the town of New Providence, New Jersey. A treasure of a restaurant called Moe's Bistro is a must while staying there. The Mediterranean food is amazing and Moe is a great host! The hotel staff is professional and kind. Rooms were big and comfortable. Small refrigerator and microwave was a plus along with service team attentive to room details. Highly recommend for both business and pleasure.

    We had an event in the area, and took the train in from Eastern Long Island. Was an easy walk to the hotel from the train station. Staff was friendly. Short walk into town. Nice breakfast served in the morning. We found the layout of the room to be a little strange, and somewhat dated, but all in all it was a worthwhile stay at a reasonable price.

    « it's THE BEST Western! »

    It's my second stay in this hotel during my business trips and I have to say that it's probably "he BEST Western hotel I've seen. The location (in New Providence) really elevates the quality of this hotel and the service. It's nice, clean, quiet,convenient. it's just neat. You might not need to rent a car with the train station located in a walkable distance. Just make sure the trains still work if you are coming from the Newark airport late at night.

    My aunt was celebrating her 80th birthday in Summit and the Best Western Plus in New Providence looked like a good and close place to spend the night. Overall, great place. The front desk people were very nice, the room seemed clean, bed comfy. Had a fridge (which I LOVE when my room has a fridge) and a microwave. Wifi seemed good. TV good with a good selection of channels. Shower OK. There was a robe in my room but I didn't use it. AC worked well. I sleep with one of those noise apps on my phone so I didn't hear any loud noises during the night. One small thing I thought was great. I HATE it when you turn on the AC and it blows the curtain all over the place. They have a plastic container along the top of the AC where you, uh, tuck the curtain into. I'm not explaining it well but it keeps the curtain from blowing all over. Breakfast the next day was OK. I mean, it was't OMG this is great, but it was pretty good for a free breakfast. Had some scrambled eggs and sausage, with apple juice. They had a couple different juices, waffles (I think), yogurt, etc. Nice spread. Not just a couple prepackaged muffins and coffee. I didn't leave the hotel (only there one night) so I can't speak about area restaurants, close to business offices, etc. I don't know when I'll be visiting my aunt again but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel staff were extremely helpful. The location was perfect for our needs. We held two bus tours and the first one was in northern New Jersey and the second one was to NYC.

    I've been in several hotels in the past 2 months and I must say this has been the best value! Great room! Excellent staff! Very good breakfast AND it's complimentary!! Spacious rooms and very clean. I usually look for inexpensive accommodations just for a good bed and bath but this was the best! Best Best Western ever!

    Stayed here to be near family in the area. It is very convenient. Since it seems to cater to business people the accomodations are clean, up to date, and the breakfast is one of the best we've ever had in a Best Western.
