    « clean hotel with decent breakfast »

    in town for meeting and ive stayed at this hotel before. it looks like theyre updating a lot. i saw landscapers outside until late at night working in the rain and they were really getting in a good cleanup. the outside of the hotel looks pretty basic, lobby is nice and clean. rooms are pretty clean, bathrooms are a little on the smaller side but they were clean. i stayed on the 2nd floor this time and the rooms seem a little bigger and so does the bathroom. 1st floor seems a little tight but i liked that i was able to see my car last time i was placed on the 1st floor. it looks like they changed some of the furniture in the rooms and when i asked i was told they were under new management and that the new management is really taking care of the staff now and investing in them. employees seemed very happy and excited to be at work. hallways smelled a little funny but its probably because it was 95 degrees and very humid. if i ever have to come back to this area ill try to stay here again. my company likes the fact they are much less expensive than the other mediocre brands in the area.

    « nice hotel with cheap rpices »

    i must say after reading some reviews i was skeptical but i was allowed to see a room before checking in by the manager. i can tell the staff was working very hard as everyone was moving around in an urgent manner. they were very attentive and even gave me a few free water bottles. The room was clean and smelled like lavender. i think this place is great. Unlike some other reviews i read there were no shady people outside. mostly tourists from another country, there was a lot of people in the breakfast room but the selection was there and the girl who worked in there kept everything fully stocked even when things disappeared within minutes. this hotel is close to the mall and has a bunch of restaurants in the parking lot so its definitely a convenient location. ill def be back towards the end of the summer.

    « Clean and friendly »

    Looks like things are changing. I've been here before and the rooms look better than ever. Breakfast is still free and had a good selection. The staff is probably the best part. Everyone is friendly and they always ask if I need anything. All smiling when I see them.

    « Clean but not at all what I would expect for a rating of 4 »

    This is definitely an Inn and all lower rooms are accessed from an outside door. We had an upstairs room that should have been accessed with the card key, but the lock was not only disengaged, but taped and painted over. Lobby looked like it had an overhaul, but the first thing I smelled was cigarette smoke, so someone had either been smoking in the building or close to it. Once assigned our room, we walked to the closest stairwell and found it unlocked - this is a safety issue and a half! the stairwell smelled of camphor to the point of being nauseating. Once upstairs, the smell went away. The room was clean and of adequate size, but the towel allotment was cheap - only two full size towels where most hotels offer you 3 to 4 for double occupancy. I would only stay here again if absolutely no other hotel was available.

    « Horrible,Horrible »

    Checked in Thursday for my elderly parents. I saw the parkng lot was being paved. I asked if this will be done today and the front desk person assured me it would be. That night we could not get the car in front of their room because the parking lot was closed off. I had to have them walk each day to get to the car in a different lot. This was a holiday weekend. Why would they start work like this and cause this problem. The full breakfast was held in a dark room. There were dried pancakes,bagels an butter when asked about the eggs they were told they didn't get a delivery. The front desk staf was not helpful at all. I would never recommend ??this motel. Not even overnight.

    « Don't waste your money!!! »

    Lets start by addressing the plastic covering the hallway floors and room numbers written on paint tape attached to all doors. Because I'm in the hotel business, I have a habit of checking the sheets for any stains to ensure there are no bed bugs especially in motels. And of course there were tons of disgusting stains. The bathtub floor was covered in what appeared to be rust. Oh and the door was open when we first got there. I hadn't actually checked the beds right away when we first checked in bc we had been in a rush to attend a concert. When we got back is when I checked the sheets (room 267). I called the front desk around 2 am to ask to be changed to another room without bed bug blood stains. The Housekeeping dept should at least be smart enough to discard sheets with this many stains. We were changed to room 221 which seemed to be better until the next morning when we were looking for something right before checking out we noticed a pair of dirty socks which clearly weren't ours. The worst part is that it's a platform bed so there's no reason why housekeeping shouldn't have noticed these at the corner of the bed. There was a brownish stain on the towel hanging on the tub. At this point we didn't even want to shower. We just left. NEVER again!

    « Keep Driving »

    We arrived after a long drive at 2:30am. Someone was sleeping on the couch in the lobby. The person who checked me in (not the sleeping individual) was nice. We were traveling with our dog and our room was handicap accessible. We did not request this. The entire bathroom was tiled and smelled of urine. The chairs were stained (did not use them) and the carpet was dirty. If we weren't so tired we would have left. The bed seemed clean so we opted to sleep the 4 hours and left without using the shower. The hotel is extremely outdated and old. For the price you can do better elsewhere. We called the hotel about an hour before we arrived looking for a dog friendly hotel. It was the 4th hotel we called. We weren't told about the free breakfast but after seeing the quality of our room we didn't want to eat there. We opted for Dunkin Donuts right down the street. The checkout person was friendly but couldn't get the printer to work for my receipt. I'd say yo keep on driving and find another hotel.

    « Too much prostitution activity »

    Will not be staying here again on account of the all night prostitution activity. Don't even want to know what other criminal activity is taking place at this location. I'll be staying in the Hazlet, NJ Best Western instead.

    « Average hotel for lower price range »

    Issue with broken toilet was resolved on check-in. Given a different room. Hallways accessible to public in our upstairs room since main outside door lock was not working. TV remote didn't work. Had to get desk to reauthorize key card several times during 4 day stay after they stopped working periodically. Shower water pressure very low.

    « Needs work »

    Not a great experience. Broken TV remote. Leaky drain pipe. Heater didn't work right. Bathroom floor was dirty. Sink area was not clean. But, the bed was comfortable, the room was quiet, and we felt safe.

    « Need Renovation. »

    Avoid staying on the 1st level, it seems like those rooms have not been renovated. Had major issue with the heating unit in the room, had to switch 3 rooms and even then the one we stayed was warm air.

    2
    « Not Very Clean! »

    It was good for a quick stay, but I would never stay there again. There was mascara stained on the pillow cases and trash was left in the hallway for all 3 days that I was there. Although staff at the lobby were nice and helpful and breakfast wasn't bad.

    2
    « not so good. »

    I spent only one night in the hotel. The heater in my room was broken, it was either on or off, the auto button did not work. I warmed the room up, turned the heat off as it was hot and dry but woke later freezing needing to turn the heat back on for a while. Also the check out clerk was rude and unprofessional. BW typically offers a grab and go bag in the morning for those without time to visit the continental breakfast, this particular BW did not have the grab and go and I was told to go to the vending machines for water at $2.50 a bottle. Oddly the sign for the grab and go amenity was prominently displayed at the check in desk.

    « Good stay »

    We had a very good stay at the Best Western in East Brunswick. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was a nice and quiet location. We would like to return. There was many places to eat nearby and the price was right!

    « Given unserviced room »

    Upon check in, I was given a key to a room that had not been serviced (unmade beds, wet towels all over, etc). I called down the the front desk who instructed me to come down and get a key to a different room. The staff apologized but this was a major inconvenience. I had to carry all of my luggage from the first room on one side of the hotel to the new room in a different building. This made me late for the event that I was in town to attend.

    « check in from hell »

    night clerk was lost for an hour, even called the cops for a welfare check, nobody seemed to care when I got checked in, next morning informed of the hour and a half process and they said they would email me a new invoice with a discount, did not expect much but got the invoice that they gave me at check out (so no discount) Room was nice (some smoke odor) but probably would not go back.

    « pleasant room, horrible breakfast »

    great design for room for the price, extra touches such as arched, lighted soffit over bed, double sinks in bathroom, triple mirrors. However, breakfast was cramped, harried and hurried. Too many people in too small a space. Food not kept up with demand.

    5
    « Service at its best! »

    Our stay was great start to finish! We had a nice large room with 2 queen beds and a microwave and fridge. It was clean and modern. I was very surprised. The staff really went out of their way to make sure all our needs are met. The helped with directions, restaurant suggestions, and extra towels.

    « Good value this close to NYC »

    The hotel is a good Best Western...an hour from NYC...coming from the south, rest here before your trip into New York---save some hotel money on first night...same for the other way...Save some dough on the last night by transferring to this hotel on the way home...

    « It's come a long way! »

    I've been a customer of this hotel for the last 12 years (since it was the McIntosh Inn). No, it's not top of the line. It was never meant to be. But for its class, it's one of the best around, especially since the new management came in. I can credibly say that these people have put some money into this facility, inside and out. Before they came, there was no landscaping to speak of. They have done a great job at that including benches and that patriotic flag pole...with a flag!! The interior renovations were a much needed improvement. But as with many hotels in this class, failure to maintain the hallway carpeting can result in a stale odor, sometimes. Yes, the breakfast variety has been reduced to more of a continental style in the last couple of years. But, there are two affordable, national restaurant chains directly in front of the hotel. They may still have a discount arrangement with IHop. I know that they have increased their extended stay and tour bus business. But the bottom line is profit. And, they are not the only area lodging to seek out these markets. So sometimes it may be a bit noisy. And sometimes it may be crowded in the small breakfast area. But you can only make so much money from the "one-night stay" crowd flowing along Route 18. My only real issue with this hotel is the tendency to allow the hallways doors to remain propped open. When asked about it during one of my stays, the staffer's response was that they have cameras. Of course, I didn't see one pointed over the doors which are accessible by anyone passing along. I have gone into the hallways myself to purchase items from the vending machines with ease. When I mentioned it to one of the maids, she suggested that I rent a direct access room on the first floor. Both answers were wrong from my perspective. Since patrons and staff have card keys, why would any of the exterior doors need to remain open, period? I feel that is their one safety issue. The facility is across the street from a mall and in front of a busy gym. The town of East Brunswick is a low-crime bedroom community but it is not crime free! The exterior door situation is definitely a safety issue. For the most part, I've found the staff to be okay. They did have staff who smoked and would stand in the doorway to do so. Of course, this allowed smoke to filter back into the lobby. But, I figured that perhaps staff is hard to find. Television reception is not always reliable and channel selection is fairly limited. But, again, it is what it is...and one of the most expensive BW's in the county. I will stay here again (in a couple of weeks as I do every year). And I do recommend it to others for a convenient night or two. The manager's at my former job used it a lot during bad winter weather. They could walk across the highway to open the store! Give it a try.

    « Really No Frills »

    I guess Best Western just decided to give up with this one. From the typically surly NJ desk clerk to the non-operational ice maker and the burnt out light bulbs and disheveled room features, this has been a pretty poor stay. But it's nearby where I need to be, it's relatively cheap, the room IS clean ... it's just lacking any type of flavor or personality at all. Usually BW tries to keep things updated, but this one falls far short.

    « Excellent stay at Best Western »

    « Front desk is amazing. »

    Every employee I encountered was friendly and happy to help with what ever I needed. The rooms were basic but served their purpose. The room was a little hard to locate from outside due to the layout.

    « Clean friendly hotel! »

    We were looking for a dog friendly hotel for one night, and happy we decided with Best Western ! Very clean room, no sign it was even a pet friendly hotel. Kind staff, decent internet and tv selection. Name brand shampoos provided, and polite staff that greets you each time you pass them! Awesome stay.

    « Disappointing »

    Hotel looks great from the outside. The inside is another story. This place is badly in need of repairs and updating. There are holes in the wall, falling tile, and old age most obvious to the eye. No fault of the staff however as everyone encountered was most friendly and accommodating. The bed was comfortable and a quiet sleep was had.

    « What a GREAT hotel!! »

    I got a great deal at this hotel in East Brunswick! The price was the best in this town. My room was very spacious and clean. The front desk girl was very friendly and helped me with directions to the restaurant I needed to be at. The breakfast in the morning was free and had great coffee, pastries and bagels. I definately recommend this hotel.

    « Phenomenal stay!! »

    We had a great stay at this hotel. It all started with the friendly staff at the front desk and was matched by the clean, large, well appointed room. Location is truly unbeatable with everything that one would need within few minutes drive. The breakfast was great too. Highly recommended & we will definitely be back.

    « Stay Away »

    Save your money people. Stay away from this hotel! Feel confident in spending $100+ at another chain hotel to get a comfortable, clean room. It's not here at the BW East Brunswick Inn. Rooms weren't clean. Complimentary breakfast was HORRIBLE and LATE without even an offer of coffee for the waiting guests. Guests/visitor (?) outside the building talking/yelling loudly on the phone late at night/early in the morning. Did I mention the cleanliness is highly suspect? RUN!

    1
    « Not bad if... »

    .... ..you don't mind a poorly maintained, poorly serviced, relic of what must have been quite nice when it was built 50 years ago. Then again, maybe not. My favorite ?highlight? is having to run around under the shower head trying to get wet. Or was it the ancient heating/ac unit that makes a billion decibels of noise every time it kicks on, blowing freezing air right on you in the adjacent bed? Or maybe my room key card that twice got demagnetized from, the desk guy told me, my cell phone, credit cards, or my car key fob (due to the fob's battery). Or perhaps asking the desk guy how to turn off the blinking red phone light indicating a waiting message, only to be told he has no idea. Never again. Hoo boy.

    « Worst Hotel EVER »

    I stayed at this hotel only because I was in the area for a funeral and it was inconvenient to check out and go else where. The cleanliness of the room and hotel are extremely poor. Bathroom was aged and poorly maintained. The door to the bathroom scrapped along the floor as you opened it making a load sound every time you opened and closed. The toilet flush mechanism was broken and had to be flushed several times. I would advise putting fire exit directions on the back of the doors as required by law. The window to the outside was broken or never installed correctly since it did not close or lock. I placed a coat hanger in the track to stop it from being open from the outside. In the window track was a family of shield bugs which occasionally would find its way crawling up the curtains inside. I thought that I killed them all but one would keep appearing. The air conditioner is loud and does not run continuous as normal air conditioners do, on any setting. The clock on the bed stand was broken and stuck at 12:00. I tried to adjust it but internally it was broken. The entry doors to the outside of the hotel were open around the clock adding to the security threat with the window I described. The second outside door was magnetically latched but had a large gap that anyone could reach in through the pulled door and unlatch it. This had to be the worst hotel in all my years in spite of the occasion.

    Our stay at this specific best western was very good. The front desk clerk , Vanessa, was so so helpful and friendly. We had a rough time at other hotels, i.e. Motel 6, best western hazlet... but this one was definitely different. I would definitely stay again , the room was clean and more up to date, the breakfast was clean and always full.

    « Terrible Night's Sleep »

    Stayed here for one night for business. Actually motel style which was not clear from booking website. Room smelled of smoke despite being non-smoking. Blanket on bed had crusted brown goo on it -- ended up sleeping in my jacket rather than using the blankets on bed. Room was very loud with guests from other rooms yelling and smoking outside. Did not get quiet until after 2am, and then was loud again by 5:30am. Heater gave off a burning smell. Towel rack in bathroom seemed as though it had been ripped off wall and re-attached several times. Hand towels and washcloths were discolored. Will not stay here again. Would not recommend.

    « Billing issue »

    Hello, We had a horrible experience with Best Western. The amount we were quoted when we made our reservation did not match what was charged to our account. Our room felt dirty and was not clean. It was the weekend of the Diesel Nationals and Friday night we barely got any sleep because of people running around/ being loud outside of our room. We would NOT recommend anyone stay at this hotel.

    « Worst hotel ever... do not stay here! »

    I have declared before that I would never again book a night in any hotel associated with Best Western. The quality standards must be low to allow some of the worst hotels to be part of their group and they have not been able to resolve serious problems when hotels have serious problems. On this occasion, someone else booked a room at this Best Western, probably only because of the location and the fact that it says that the rooms are renovated. Our flight was late and we didn't get to the hotel until almost midnight. There was a gang of young men in a car in the parking lot... I'm not sure what they were doing there but, it didn't make me feel comfortable. The room was dirty, smelled of cigarette smoke, and it appeared that the sheets hadn't been changed from the last guest. There were a couple of young ladies who spent the night on the street near our room looking for short-term relationships. We spent a fitful night on top of the bedcovers, in our clothes, and got up early to get the heck away from this place. The young ladies were still working on the street when we left. This hotel doesn't deserve a one star rating. Do not stay here (unless you are looking for the type of place I described in this review). Having been to this hotel, I cannot believe that the rooms that I and my father stayed in could ever warrant a five star excellent rating. It is not possible unless other guests were staying at the East Brunswick Best Western in an alternate universe where everything that is crap is good.

    Stayed one night in a 2 queen room. Beds were ok, but room was not very clean. Found corners were not vacuumed or washed, stains and burn holes in bedding, air conditioner barely pushed out lukewarm air because it was filthy. Shower either burnt your skin off or froze you. Breakfast was ok, but very crowded due to a large tour group. Had party people next door which made it hard to sleep . Will pay an extra $50 per night for a cleaner hotel next time

    We really enjoyed our stay at the best western in east brunswick. The staff was fantastic! They were very friendly and helped us get around the area. There was tons to do nearby. Lots of shopping and restaurants. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was clean and spacious. Wifi was free and very fast. Free breakfast was a great perk!

    « Amazing stay!! »

    Loved the stay at the hotel!! They had a lovely staff and a welcoming environment. I and my friends loved the breakfast service as well as the gym service they had. We enjoyed the location that the hotel was at. We had access to the mall at a walking distance. There were good places to eat close by as well, as a hotel guest we also were given good discounts to the close by food places which was a great benefit.

    This review should be taken seriously.This franchise will reflect BW in a bad way and will affect business.The other businesses beside it will also be affected.The suggestion to have unannounced inspection will show what this hotel really is and how it function.Need to improve staffing esp during times of check in and check out.

    This hotel is very friendly. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The check-in and checkout process was very efficient. The breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. The fitness room was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

    Outdated facility, no amenities for me to speak of. Rear entrance locking mechanism was broken allowing anyone to get in. They did do a sloppy temporary fix. On the positive the front staff was very friendly, housekeeping doesn't smile. But all in all it was a decent value for the dollar and the right location for me.

    « "Sleeping with the Bed Bugs" DO NOT ENTER - STAY AWAY »

    I've never been so disappointed in a hotel experience. My uncle had just passed away, my family and I needed a place to stay in Jersey. I got the two bedroom with another family member. When I first arrived, I was greeted with a front desk attended who tossed me my key card and said "out the door to the right". She pointed to my card for the room number. I walked over to my room to notice water bottles and old ice bags around the landscape of the property, not very presentable. I inserted my key and the reinserted it slower and it didn't work. I tried this 4 times until I went back to the front desk. As if I was asking for the keys to the owners suite, annoyed, the hotel employee walked with me to my room. She tried to enter twice and then reassigned me a brand new key for the room. I opened the door to a room Edgar (the cockroach from Men In Black) would have called home. The room was disgusting but I had no time to worry as I was late for my Uncle's wake. After coming home I just had to take pictures and show this to the attendant. I walked to the front desk and no one was there. I was completely alone with my dirty pictures and disgust. I had to go back and sleep for the night. Blood stains aligned the walls, meeting the floors filled with dirt from years of build up. The room was so dirty that I felt like I was sleeping in a garbage bag. Mystery spots were on the walls, in the light fixtures, on the furniture, and even in the bathroom filled with mold. I couldn't even attempt to go back to the front desk as right outside my room crowds of people formed and started to party outside until 4 am, I thought it was unsafe to leave the room with a broken lock. The following morning I had to attend the funeral mass. I went to check out and no attend was behind the desk, once again, so I left my key behind the desk. Furious with the customer service and experience I knew I would get in touch with them after. Just a day after we checked out of the hotel, we both had went to the doctor after feeling extremely itchy to find we had lice from the hotel's bed. BED BUGS. We had called the hotel and company to express our frustration and experience. All they offered to give us was 25% of the room instead, of for free as we had insisted. I sent them the pictures attached and even a letter to corporate and they said that 25% is the best they can do - they didn't even offer my family condolences for my uncles passing. I had to dispute the charge and thankfully my credit card company saved the day. I would highly recommend staying away from this hotel and if I could sum up this review with a symbol it would be the ice bags I mentioned in the begging. Right before I had left the hotel I decide to take advantage of the ice machine (with my own zip block bag). I figured why not get some ice? I went to the ice machine and it was broken. No sign or anything just broken after trying multiple times. I now solved the mystery of why so many ice bags lay around the hotel property. When staying at this hotel customers get so fed up they just toss the bags like their tossing their money - into the ground.

    If you are looking for an up to date hotel with a bar and such, this is not your place. If you are looking for a comfortable and quiet small hotel, this is it. The lobby was remodeled and very nice. The rooms need a facelift, but again, are quite comfortable. And the staff is outstanding. The breakfast is so-so. I've had better. But there is an IHOP and a Denny's on either side. This was my second visit and I will definitely stay again.

    Property is not the newest Best Western and is a combination Motel and Hotel. They do however appear to try to maintain the property and make the most of what they have.

    « This specific location-disappointing »

    I personally, would not stay at this specific Best Western in the future. First of all, I do not like that the set up is outdoors. Our room was on the second floor, thankfully, however the door to go upstairs was not locked at all. It was open 24/7. So the only sense of security I thought I had, was not secure at all. Obviously the actual hotel can't be changed too much (with the first floor rooms opening to outside), but at least that door to the second floor stairs can be locked. It should only open with the keycard but we never had to use the keycard. Also the fact that someone could be lurking around there because there's parking lots on either side, was concerning as well. I will not return to this location for these reasons. Also we could not turn the air on. The unit was not working properly and we were so hot during the night and day. The shower head also had terrible pressure, so it was almost coming straight down, instead of shooting out. I am NOT one to complain about anything. But these key issues really turned me off to this hotel.

    « Needs a LOT of Work »

    Stopped to stay the night on the way to New York City. The location was out of the way and when I walked in to check in, none of the employees had shoes on. One was barefoot and it was 35 outside. The room was rundown with wires hanging out of the walls, cobwebs on the ceiling, carpet that has not been vacuumed for ages. The bathroom wall was being held together with a piece of duct tape. No hi def tv. Breakfast was underwhelming, like this whole experience. No bath towels in the from, took half an hour to receive them when I asked.

    « You get what you pay for...not that special or great...needs help »

    I've stayed here 2x's in the past 30 days. I do not think I'll return unless I'm in a jam. It needs help. Things need to be repaired......looks sloppy and dirty. Definitely needs a thorough cleaning. First room didn't have a hairdryer...so when I get out of shower and I realize there isn't one...i have to wait for someone to bring me one and then i'm questioned 2 times about did I look in the closet? It should be in the closet. There was no hair dryer in the room. The bedding was disgusting. They should've been ashamed of themselves to let people sleep on it. Burn marks on the sheets and comforter. Big marker stains on white comforter and lots of other stains. SO GROSS. I didnt notice until the morning I was leaving because I didnt check. I complained to manager and she didnt seem to care. My current room has dead bugs in the lights...clock doesnt work. outlets don't work. curtain is torn and not hung properly. Lampshades ripped/torn. Missing towels in bathroom. Overall..if you are looking for a cheapish place to lay your head and you aren't paying attention to details....it's fine. Otherwise, go somewhere else.

    « Dropped standards, mixed views »

    Some background, I had stayed here in the past and felt it was value for money. This time, whole I noted the new carpets and other uncompleted renovations, I shuddered at how much the standards had dropped. Mainly the cleanliness or lack of cleanliness in the rooms.. the bedding was not sanitary. . Then the air conditioner in the room wasn't heating anything... I shudder what would happen in winter... the hallways had some uncompleted patch work in several places... My overall conclusion was standards had dropped fast and management was slacking and this is fast becoming a motel rather than a hotel. while the location is great, there are other places on the area that offer much better value for similar price.

    We had a four night stay here and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Our room was clean and the bed was excellent. It is a busy hotel with many tour buses but we found it to be quiet in our room. The check in and checkout processes were quick and efficient. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel as we chose to eat next door at IHOP. The location of this hotel is excellent for shopping with a mall just across the street.

    « Stay far away from this run down mess »

    Stayed there four nights with bus tour. First room was foul smelling like mold. The room next door was filthy so both moved upstairs. Better room but still dirty. Plug in bathroom not working and no heat. Room across hall had broken toilet. Bedbugs found in two other rooms and despite pictures management refused to acknowledge. They also avoided contact. One person works the entire hotel from 3 onward. My up most respect goes to Kia at the front desk who does her best to resolve issues for customers. Lovely person and deserves a raise. After complaints some improvement shown in daily cleaning. The whole place needs to be gutted as carpet dirty and stinks,plaster crumbling, mold, just yuck. Room keys had to be reset every day. Worst of it was management just really didn't care.

    « DON'T GO NEAR IT! »

    Went on a bus shopping trip, the worst mistake we ever made was staying at this dump. All the rooms had a smell not a fresh smell, it was musty/moldy, the blanket had a stain on it, one of the towels had five holes in it, I wouldn't even give a towel with holes to a guest at my own home, the chairs were stained, lamps had no light bulbs with torn lampshades, bedskirt had a hole and was very wrinkled, the windows were so filthy dirty that they were gray in color, the dry wall was not taped properly to the wall by the window you could push on it and it would move, each day we left to go shopping we had to get our keycards re-activated, mold on the ice machine, the door to the upstairs rooms was kept open by a rock when it should have been locked after all it was keycard entry, the staff didn't wear uniforms or name tags so you didn't know if they were guest or workers, when I requested towels they didn't give them to me until the next afternoon, we put the do not disturb sign in our door but they went in anyway and they took the sign, this place is so bad that the pop machine was also messed up, you press orange pop you get lemonade. Our tour organizers wanted to meet with the manager of the place and she would not come in to meet with them, we were there from November 3-7,2016. I wouldn't stay there again if they gave me the room for free. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

    « Think twice »

    We stayed there only once because it was close to family but we were disappointed in the condition of the room and breakfast. When we arrived for breakfast we were greeted by a bus load of people. There had to be at least 30 people in the very small eating room and most of the food was gone. The hotel needs to be updated. We have been back several times to that area and stayed at a different hotel.

    Great hotel for the price. Location is nice, very close to the mall and restaurants. Rooms were clean. Only negative thing I noticed was the smell of smoke in the hallways, but the rooms smelled fine.

    « Thanks, but no thanks »

    First, the good points: most of the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a issue with our room not having hot water and they quickly moved us to another room which also happened to be nicer. The king bed was comfortable and there was a choice of two size pillows. The room had a microwave and refrigerator and the location of the hotel is convenient to restaurants and a shopping mall. Our room faced the back and it was quiet. Now for the negatives: the first room was non-smoking but smelled awful and we couldn't get hot water in the bathroom. The floor was filthy and appeared to have only vacuumed in the center. There were wrappers and dirt behind the furniture and along the sides by the walls. The chairs in both rooms were dirty. The hair dryer didn't function correctly. The shower water didn't drain and flooded the entire bathroom floor. The ceiling had major damage that was poorly patched. They ran out of towels. Breakfast is sad with some pancakes, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, mini muffins and bagels, juice, and terrible tasty coffee. There was a sign saying to ask for gluten free options which I did and the woman at the front desk had no idea what I was talking about. She got rather annoyed and finally told someone to take the sign down. While, we realize the price here is much lower than other hotels in the area, and you can find a coupon for an additional discount, we don't plan to stay here again.

    The room was ok but the internet was terrible...it kept shutting off and i had to constantly reset it, the 2 chairs in my room were filthy so i stayed on the bed.

    No matter how many times we asked for towels. we never got them. This being said we asked the cleaning ladies and the desk. But it would take hours for them to bring any and we needed them within 5hr not 24.

    « Quick stop »

    We stayed here for just one night. The room itself was located on the 2nd floor, and adequate for our needs. This motel establishment does not have an elevator, so we had to lug our bags up a flight of stairs. Breakfast was chaotic as there was a large group of college-age young adults getting their food to go while their tour guide yelled at them to get on the bus ASAP. The trash can was filled to the brim, with coffee grains spilt on the floor. The tables were not cleaned up after the guests' use. At the end of our continental breakfast, a staff member did come along to clean up the mess on the floor. The only saving grace was the motel's close proximity to Olive Garden across the street. I don't think I'd stay here again, although I think the other motel choices may be similar in value.

    This BW is one of my favorite locations when driving up to JFK from NC or vice versa. Quiet location for good sleep; walking distance to good restaurants and short drive for shopping.

    « Review of The Best Western Inn (Rm. 213) »

    Length/Type: 2-night stay, tour package accommodations Hotel Rating: 3-star Tour Company: Sinorama Tours Travel Dates: August 24-26, 2016 (Wed.-Fri.) Overall Experience: Fair Good Points: - Free Wi-Fi, newspapers available in lobby - Comfortable bed - In-room coffee maker - Hotel located across the street from a shopping mall Bad Points: - In-room A/C was noisy & weak (had to change rooms) - Included breakfast was poor, buffet & sitting area much too small - Second floor smelt bad - Far from NYC (1h drive from Manhattan) General Overview This was an included 2-night hotel stay, part of a New York City sightseeing tour. I will admit, this is more of a motel rather than a hotel. The lobby was small and the breakfast area was even smaller. Speaking of which, the included breakfast wasn't very good. You had a small selection of toast and bagels, juice, coffee and cereals. There were also a few hard-boiled eggs and firm flapjacks, which weren't too appetizing. As for the breakfast sitting area, there were 4-5 tables, each siting 4 people. It was very small and compact. Once it got busy, there was nowhere to sit. The self-serve buffet reminded me of a typical airplane galley. The whole area became very crowded once everyone on our tour showed up for breakfast (serving yourself was impossible). As for the room, it was average size (as well as the bathroom), but clearly outdated and run down. On the upside, there was Wi-Fi available and there were shops and restaurants located in the vicinity. The Room The furniture in the room was worn out and broken in certain cases. The knobs on the drawer units were loose, with run down corners. The wall- mounted lamp by the desk didn't work and the A/C unit wasn't very powerful (we had to switch rooms when we first arrived, since the first room we got had virtually no A/C). The second floor hallway (where our room was located) had a strong cigarette smoke odor. Yet the beds in the room were comfortable and the room itself was relatively clean. Advice to those staying: - This is a budget hotel. If you're visiting New York City and just need an inexpensive place to stay for a few nights, this hotel is ok. Bare in mind, it is a 1-hour drive from Manhattan (and that's with good traffic along the New Jersey Turnpike). - Don't bother going to the breakfast buffet. Spend the extra $10-15 and go to IHOP or Denny's instead, right in front of the hotel. You'll get a much better meal served to you in a quieter setting.

    « Got what we paid for »

    My family and I stopped in around 11pm and left before 8am the next day. As a stopover, this hotel was acceptable. The room seemed clean, the beds comfortable. The morning breakfast had hard-boiled eggs, pancakes (in a hot-plate, so crisped in the bottom layer), cereal, milk, coffee, tea, juice. pastries. No make-it-yourself waffle, but whatever. The only real complaint I have is that our non-smoking room certainly smelled as if smokers had inhabited it more than once or twice before our stay.

    « Too far from everything ! »

    I spent 2 nights in this hotel when I visited New York earlier this month. However, this is way too far from Manhattan. First of all, for me this is not a hotel - this is Motel. Very far from new York and if that is a purpose of your visit (to go to Manhattan) it is much better to find something else. This is about one hour ride from there. There is very small breakfast area and I had to take my breakfast in the room. It was impossible to find available chair or table. Breakfast itself is not too good with almost no warm stuff (just pancakes). My room was on the ground level and parking is just 3-4 meters from my window. Room was clean and bad was OK, however bathroom is very small. It is not that bad, however I will never come again.

    « Not bad, but.. »

    The price is right. The service was great--we had a terrific interaction with the desk attendant. But...the included b'fast is not great. They put out two towels for a room with two queen beds (there were four of us) and there was one caffineeted coffee for the in-room coffee maker. Also, they have an adjustable showerhead, but the water pressure is so bad, that this is ridiculous. Fine for a quick stop. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

    We stopped here supposablly it was right off the highway, but it's right about four miles down the highway. At the hotel there was wiring that needed to be taken care of, they were sticking out. All that needed to be done was to have a cover on it. Both ice machines didn't work. The breakfast room was as big as a walk in closet. There was a bus load of kids so they had the whole kitchen they stayed in the kitchen until it closed. At 9:00 sharp. So no one else could eat. They should have extended the breakfast meal but they were on a schedule.

    Really poor cleanliness, and hotel wouldn't return calls afterwards when we forgot something in the room and requested that it be shipped. We offered to pay for the shipping and do anything we could to help.

    although the hotel could use face lift as far as mattresses etc it has gotten alot better over the past few years . Fast check in and check out close proximity to the race track and other ammenities what else could you ask for ?

    « A place to crash that's quiet »

    Tuesday May 17th I checked in around 4:30pm. Vanessa at check in was calm but efficient. I was given a quiet upstairs room in the back. The room was clean and everything worked. The bed had a foam pad on top which made for good sleeping. I realized I left my credit card at check in and Vanessa had it ready for me when I asked for it. There is an IHOP and a Denny's within a short 3 min walk or so from this motel that are 24 hours so that's convenient. It's not new but quiet and clean. Good deal for the money.

    « Good location with Great Staff »

    This hotel is very central and across a big shopping center. The hotel has loads of restaurants around it, like 24 hour IHop (pancake and all day breakfast) plus Red Lobster plus so much more. The rooms are very clean. Plus the hotel does offer a free small gym (but if the gym isn't big enough or you want a full gym you will find a massive WOW exercise gym at the back of the hotel, they give you a free 5 day pass to train) The only thing I wish the hotel had is an on-site laundry area. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I hotel I would recommend.

    « Worst 2 nights ever »

    Just take my word for it. Do not go through booking.com or to this best western. Lost about 100 dollars because they screwed up my reservation. The walls are so thin if you are a late sleeper expect to be woken up at 8am or earlier. The lights didn't work so every night I had to unscrew the light bulbs, Toilet didn't flush, desk was cracked in half. Whole room smelled like chorine when we checked in.

    « Great organization and amazing front desk staff named Vanessa! »

    My husband and I decided to go on a road trip to explore New Jersey. Before, we knew it, it was 9:00 and we decided to look for a hotel. The nearest hotel where we were located at was Best Western so we stop and checked in. When we checked in we ask the young lady Vanessa at the front desk a lot of questions, such as ,"Is there a washer and dryer machine," "What will you guys be striving at breakfast," "Are the rooms and bathrooms good in size" and etc. She asked so professional that me and my husband were in shocked. She is a very nice and professional young lady! Im so glad that this respectful lady checked us in, Vanessa helped my husband and I a lot!

    « Very good hotel »

    Very clean and comfortable room. The price was more than I wanted to pay but I didn't have reservations and it was on a weekend. Breakfast was conventional. You got 20% off your meal if you ate at the nearby IHop. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    « Terrible experience »

    Terrible experience. Not clean, felt unsafe, breakfast was not available because nothing was restocked and people were walking out with trays of food- no monitoring. Bathroom was dirty and when AC was turned out black ash was shooting out of it. Was a smoking room/floor and still has smell. Very unsatisfied. Switched to a Hilton for the same rate and had a much better experience. Will not stay at a Best Western again.

    This hotel is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, My kids were attending a dance competition event, where we have been competing for the last 10 years, and never have i stayed in such a terrible place. Rooms stunk of smoke, room was not cleaned properly, no room attendant service, no replenishment of towels or toilet paper. Garbage left for 2 days. They lost all my information after i checked in and then tried to check someone else in at 1 am. was not offered any accommodations at all. worst ever.

    « Shame on Best Western »

    This property is so run down, old, gross, stinky and horrid. I'm ashamed that Best Westen keeps its name on this. It's really a waste, because it has a great location for getting into the city, but it isn't worth it. Pay a little more to get somewhere that isn't nasty. The ice machines didn't work, the floors are all uneven. The rooms stink. The hallways stink. They are just milking this property for money and not putting a dime back into it.

    The door knob was broken and they never came to fix it, but everything else was ok. They didnt let me a deposit, everything was clean, the staff was very friendly and is near to airport. Just a few minutes from Walmart and other stores too.

    « Pretty well maintained »

    Last minute booking, location wasn't the key. Price was surprising good via Hotwire, I guess it was because there was road works on Rt 18, a bit noisy, but door sound proof was good enough, didn't hear a thing in the room. Cleanness, wifi, reception, parking...everything was just what a BW should be, except bathtub didn't work well if you want to have hot bath after a long day. Breakfast, standard...

    Good location. Polite staff and hearty breakfast. Unfortunately, if you have noisy neighbors in the next room, you'll have to solve this problem yourself. Although the room looked clean, the carpet on the floor is very dirty and stinks. It's time to cover the laminate flooring.

    « Problems with doors, but great location »

    This Best Western is in a fantastic location--convenient to highways and easy walking distance to several shopping malls. I had a difficult experience due to problems with the doors (to staircase to second floor and room door locks not working properly with card key) as well as the toilets not flushing well in either of the rooms that I was put in. However, I will say that the management was very responsive to my concerns and I would give this hotel another chance in the future. Wifi, TV, and breakfast were all decent (although the fruit selection was a basket of nearly rotten, tasteless apples) and as I mentioned, the location is terrific. A pretty good value if they fix the doors and the toilets!

    It was very pleasant stay at this hotel, but i had very bad experience at the time of check in. The front desk staff assigned me the room where someone was already was there, and that was vary embarrassing for me. The front desk manager charged me $10 extra as she/ he didn't know about my rates. But rooms were cleaned and breakfast was good.

    I very recently spent a few day at your hotel in East Brunswick while visiting some old friends. The room was great, the bed was comfortable, but the part was Vanessa Ferreira. She checked me in and was very energetic and helpful. Whenever I came into or exited the hotel she greeted me with a big smile. Whenever I needed something she made sure I got it in a timely manner. Very great time and when I'm in the area again I definitely will be staying with you. Thank you for the great stay.

    « Served my needs very well »

    I was traveling through the area and needed to lay over for the night. Having stayed at Best Western hotels in the past I was relieved when I saw this one show up on my GPS. My room was clean, took a while for the heat to get up to where I was comfortable, but that I kind of expected. The bathroom was clean, I think it is time to get a new mattress and box spring though. I had the breakfast that was available in the morning, not bad, there sure were a lot of Asian people and they were pretty loud, but I wasn't there for too long so I just dealt with it. The young woman running the front desk Vanessa was a pleasure to deal with. Very accommodating and answered the questions I had for her quickly. She is an asset to this organization. All in all a decent spot to catch up on sleep before continuing my trip. Make sure someone praises Vanessa for her hospitality.

    Overall, it is a nice place to stay when traveling to celebrate an activity after a few cocktails. I only wish they had a restaurant with a breakfast menu instead of a few items buffet style. Best Western in NYACK provides a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    « The worst »

    stayed at this hotel this weekend with some friends to attend a concert at Starland Ballroom. The hotel looks gross from the outside and the rooms are not any better. the beds are uncomfortable and the bathroom so tiny you can barely move (i am 5'2 and thin) we checked out on Sunday morning with no issues.. then on my way to work on Monday i checked my credit card statement and see a charge for $200 .. I called the hotel and they said it was a "cleaning fee" added to the room.. They never called me or emailed me to inform me they would be making this charge on my card and its even more ridiculous because the "cleaning fee" was DOUBLE the price of the whole room itself..

    « Value for the Money »

    The Good: Comfortable Beds, Hot Shower and Clean. Rooms are a little older and have shown signs of repairs, but clean. House Keeping is above average in most hotels. The Okay: Breakfast was average, consisted of cook yourself waffles, cereal, toast, oatmeal, boiled eggs, coffee, juice basic fruit and yogurt, but not always ready at the time of posting, so leave extra time in the mornings

    « DISGUSTING »

    The pictures on all travel websites for this hotel are either from when the place just opened or from another location altogether. The inside is filthy and broken down. I requested a new room after my first room had no closet door, a room lock that didn't work, missing ceiling tiles in the bathroom, what appeared to be blood on the shower curtain, a leaking faucet, and a hole in the wall. The second room honestly was not ANY better. However, I only needed to be there for a night and at least there didn't appear to be stains this time and the lock for the door worked. The staff was unfriendly and more interested in watching Botched then fixing the messed up reservations. They are still trying to charge me double for a place I didn't want to be in the first place. Don't be deceived by positive reviews from people most likely who stayed years ago or were payed to write them. Keep driving and find a cleaner, safer environment for yourself and your families.

    one room had a faulty lock that didn't lock. the other a broken heater, and it was more important to the clerk that it looked bad to have one guest with two issues in one day than to satisfy the guest. thought it might get him in trouble. amazing.

    We stayed with a group using 15 rooms. This is a great location for shopping and food. Everything is in walking distance. That being said, I'm sad to not use this hotel again until they upgrade. The rooms had a strange odor. From the cleaning chemicals I would guess. The king size beds had old spring type mattresses that they put the egg carton type foam on the top of to make them softer or so the springs wouldn't poke through. This did not stop the beds from sagging in the middle and being extremely uncomfortable. A couple of our folks even changed rooms. Didn't help. The cleaning staff needs training as carpets were dirty and bathrooms not cleaned properly. Other than a great location, this one is not for us until they get new beds and clean up a bit.

Traveling with our dog asked for a ground floor and was pleasantly surprised to learn all of their dog rooms are ground floor! Plenty of green space to use and nicely groomed. Our room was comfortable and clean. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Breakfast area was kept full and fresh.
