"Solid Quality Hotel Value"

21/09/2018

This is a high quality hotel at a budget price. The hotel is a classic suburban hotel. Large, spacious and immaculately clean rooms. It also has a five star restaurant, Moe's Bistro just off the lobby. To have this quality a hotel so close to the city at prices per room under $200 a night is a real value. We loved staying here and would gladly return.

First off, this is a expensive area, and the price for my room was very reasonable. The location is within walking distance to the town center, which has plenty of restaurants, deli's, stores etc to choose from. The staff from the desk, through maintenance to the Buffet were very friendly. Room was clean, had nice large newer tv with cable, frig,microwave, very comfortable beds, which were recleaned every day, modern/newer furnishings. The complimentary breakfast buffet was the best I have ever had with Oatmeal,eggs,sausage,waffles,danishes, toast,coffee,oj etc . Overall great experience, and whenever visiting relatives who live nearby, will gladly stay here.

"What a find!"

We just came home after a brief weekend that included this wonderful place. All of the positive reviews were accurate: this is a quiet place with impeccable service, ultra clean facilities, friendly and helpful people everywhere, comfortable bedding, air conditioning that doesn't blow you away or keep you up at night and a fabulous restaurant located right inside the entrance. And did I say quiet? Quiet is important to my husband and I and this place was one of the most peaceful places we have ever stayed in on the East Coast. They were booked solid with wedding parties and one never heard a sound. The place to eat, both dinner and the complimentary breakfast buffet, was called Moe's and it was marvelous. It's menu spanned from the simple, like sandwiches, to the elegant, like a Mediterranean styled lamb dish. My own John Dory dinner was sublime and my husband's burger with wonderful, spiraled French fries was perfect....I did say the menu spanned the spectrum having taken advantage of that breadth myself. The breakfast was terrific and filled with decent choices of hot and cold foods. I would return to this place in a heartbeat. Bravo!

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
On behalf of the entire team at our hotel I want to thank you for the over-the-top review during your recent stay with us.

We hope we have the opportunity to host your next visit to the Murray Hill/ New Providence area, and thank you again for the kind remarks.

"Great place for the price"

24/07/2018

This BW location is a little hard to rate given the strong positives and couple of negatives, but when everything is considered, it is a really good lodging. The room was large, the bed was wonderful as were the pillows and the A/C worked well, not blowing directly onto us like other hotels. The hotel location is also away from traffic, so it's quiet at night, making for easier sleep. Bonus points for these elements. The bathroom was a little compact though fully functional. We just wished there'd been a bit more elbow room. Hot water was quick to our faucets, though. The complimentary breakfast was among the best we've seen when hot offerings are available without a fresh cooking station. They had decent though slightly dry scrambled eggs, two kinds of sausage and tatter tot potatoes. There was a waffle maker in place, and they had good, hot oatmeal as well as cold cereals, hard boiled eggs, pastries, yogurts and fresh fruit compote. The fresh orange juice was great, and they also offered cranberry juice as well. For the approximately $160 before taxes, this hotel was a winner. We will return when in this area. A word of warning: the housekeeping staff routinely use a strong smelling "room freshener" that we found moderately offensive. Opening the window and door allowed a strong breeze to reduce the impact. The staff were most apologetic about our problem but had no other rooms available, so we stayed the night. The housekeeping supervisor also told us to alert them ahead of time to our sensitivity, and they would not apply the freshener to our room. As said above, we will return and just specify no freshener/fragrance. Ah, one more caution, the breakfast is available in a separate room, actually a restaurant that's only open to hotel guests for breakfast. The room is pretty chilly, so take a wrap.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
We really appreciate the fact you took the time to provide so much objective feedback on Tripadvisor! Spreading the good word on social media is important to us, and your comments indicate that we exceeded your expectations. Thank you for pointing out the comfort of the room and how our many amenities added value to your stay. We have taken note and discussed with all of our Room Attendants your comment about the air freshener. Also, climate control in a busy restaurant can be a bit challenging but your feedback reminds us to be attentive to the needs of all of our guests. Thank you again for such a thorough "review" and for sharing it on Tripadvisor.

This was our first stop on our New York trip. The hotel was clean, had a great bistro, and a great breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was good also and the price wasn't bad for what you got.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to recognize a few attributes such as our location, cleanliness and very friendly staff. We are pleased to hear that you dined in Moe's Bistro as well, and that our complimentary breakfast exceeded your expectations. We hope to see you again in the future.

"A convenint, worthwhile hotel"

25/06/2018

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night. As with most places there was good and poor, and in the case of this place the good outweighed the poor. The poor was minor starting with my room not being ready at the advertised 3 p.m. check in time. That is late enough so that a room should never be "not ready" at that hour. The elevator door, when closing, slams shut so hard that if anyone put their hand out to keep it open, they could end up with broken fingers. I mentioned this to the front desk. A simple aid for guest is to have a listing of local churches and service times available but this place does not. Other than that everything else is a positive and a good reason to stay. The rooms were spotless and well equipped with refrigerator, microwave, TV and coffee maker, etc.. One very nice touch was the built in automatic night light. This assured that your 2 a.m. walk to the bathroom would be made without tripping over the furniture. The staff was great and the grounds were landscaped beautifully. . The lobby had a coffee station for our convenience. The complementary breakfast had a wide assortment including, coffee, juice, oatmeal. eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast, bagels donuts and a waffle maker as well as fresh fruit and yogurt. All in all I liked this place very much and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to my friends.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to give us very thorough feedback from your recent stay. I am sorry that your room was not ready (perhaps there was a special request) upon your arrival because that was an isolated incident. The majority of the rooms are ready for arrivals by 1pm each day so I apologize for the inconvenience. The elevator did in fact need a slight adjustment and our licensed contractor was called for that repair. I completely agree that information regarding area churches and synagogues should be available for our guests and that is why this information is provided in the Guest Directory in each room. We appreciate your kind words regarding the cleanliness and amenities that we offer to our guests, and your feedback has been shared with the entire team. We especially like to hear such positive feedback about our breakfast buffet because we know how important it is to start each day satisfied. We hope to see you again in the future.

We arrived earlier than we expected on the morning of the Memorial service for our friend's father, after driving four hours north from Virginia. The service was starting at noon. We decided to take a chance and see if the hotel might have a room ready for us early so we could stow our bags and freshen up a bit before heading over to the service, which was being held at a church just five minutes away from the property. We lucked out and our room was ready for us--clean, neat and located at the quiet end of the corridor. The staff was kind, and eager to help us out. It was a great stay! Many thanks!

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
We are sorry to hear the circumstances surrounding your visit to New Providence, but glad that we made your stay a comfortable one. Thank you for noting that the associates were kind and willing to provide the best customer care possible.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hotel and again wasnt disappointed. The hotel is somewhat updated. It is very clean and the staff very nice. On this visit the A/C was working substandardly. I called the front desk who was willing to send a technician down immediately to look at it. Unfortunately this was not an option for us as we had an event we were trying to get ready for. After explaining this to the front desk we were immediately moved and upgraded to a new room! Could not have been more impressed! Thank you to the staff at Best Western Murrayhill!

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
It is always nice to have repeat guests because it shows us that given a choice, providing a hospitable experience brings travelers back to our front doors! I am sorry to hear that you experienced a bit of an inconvenience during your stay, but very glad to hear that the issue was resolved promptly, to your satisfaction. Thank you very much for your loyalty to our brand.

Very nice hotel. Very comfortable. Very good breakfast. Hotel did not call me for my wake up. Denied my request for 1 hour late check out. Great location near route 78. Desk clerk could have been more friendly and welcoming.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
We take pride in handling the details, and it is unfortunate that we did not meet your expectations. We are pleased that you found the hotel to be nice and comfortable, and that the breakfast was very good.

First: good is the shuttle to the office, unfortunetly could not always use it because had to go to the office at 6am as the wifi connection was a disaster....explanation was the rainy wheather. Seriously? Personel is friendly and willing to help offering a half broken umbrella... but ok, the intention was good. What stroke me most was the attached restaurant, unstable tables trying to fix them with piece of wood which did not really help, the meat was black burned, top of the bill was on Saterday having breakfast on cardboard plate. This all in combination with a too active airco and tables almost fallen apart made me feel being on a outdated camping. Thanks but no thank you anymore.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
I am very sorry that we did not meet any of your expectations during your recent stay, and I only wish we had the opportunity to address these items while you were still our guest. I am not sure what type of internet connection issue you experienced during the several days you were with us because our 24 hour support service did not show a record of a call for assistance. When connectivity issues do occur they are usually resolved immediately, and I am sorry that we were not aware of this problem. I have shared your comments regarding the breakfast service with those associates working in the morning, and the "unbalanced" tables have been balanced. I am sorry for any inconvenience you experienced with our extensive hot/cold complimentary buffet. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay.

Nice staff, comfortable clean room. Wi-fi was good, we were very satisfied! The breakfast which is included was not wonderful the one day we had it, so that is an area they can improve on. But there are plenty of restaurants in New Providence to get breakfast, so no big deal.

"Moe's Bistro is what makes this place!"

06/05/2018

Never thought we would have such a pleasant experience at a Best Western. We needed a reasonable place to stay for the night, this was just that and more. The rooms were nice and cozy, the bathrooms appear to be just renovated- very nice as well. The carpets in the hallways and the paint could be updated, but were not terrible. Moe's Bistro, a restaurant and bar, was something to really talk about, The hostess, was an older woman who was so kind and had a lot of spunk. There was a piano player, who was outstanding! While sitting at the bar, we also spent some time talking to the owners of the place- we informed them that they we were very impressed. The drinks were made well, a nice selection, and pretty knowledgeable bartender too. We had a wonderful night here, When we woke up in the a.m,, we went back to Moe's bistro for a continental breakfast. My husband and I both made ourselves Belgian Waffles-Very Good!

"RUINED OUR WEDDING WEEKEND "

1
04/05/2018

We booked 14 rooms for our wedding through this hotel, not only did they give the bride a problem during her check in, they were extremely rude and unprofessional during the process. The room was pre paid on my mother's card and they made my wife put a $500 deposit on her own card. Nothing but snotty attitudes. Next my father attempted to check in the day of our wedding and they told him his room wasn't ready, so an hour and a half later (well after the 3pm check in time) he asks again whats going on with his room. They said it still isn't ready, and that 3pm is just a "suggested check in time" and nothing is guaranteed. My father lost his mind on them and the woman said he could call and speak to the manager after the weekend. (How that would help the day OF the wedding, I don't know). He ended up getting changed in the bathroom of another family members suite. Finally one of my groomsmen did not receive his change from the extremely over priced drink he bought at the hotel bar.. when he questioned the bartender he got nothing but an attitude. This hotel, their staff, and service are despicable.

Kerry L, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
On behalf of the entire team I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations during your recent stay. I am well aware of what occurred with a few of the rooms from the wedding block, and we have communicated directly with the guests occupying those rooms. We are accustomed to balancing the arrival and departure patterns of wedding groups each weekend, but extenuating circumstances led to a few rooms not being ready at our check in time of 3pm. While I am sure it is of little consolation at this point, we had extended a one hour later departure for a particular group (12PM on Saturday) but many of them did not return to the hotel until closer to 1pm. In an effort to provide superior customer care to this particular group, we were unexpectedly behind schedule to have these rooms ready for new arrivals. We take full responsibility for this isolated incident, and understand the frustration of those guests not able to check in at 3pm. Incidentally, please speak with your father about our resolution for the inconvenience he experienced because I am sure you will agree that we have now exceeded his expectations. You also mentioned that there was an issue with a groomsman not receiving the proper change, and I am interested in speaking with him directly. Now that I have the facts surrounding that scenario I would like to have a conversation with that particular guest. Once again, I am very sorry that a few of the rooms were not available for check in at the appropriate time, and I am glad that we have had the opportunity to resolve this with those affected by this inconvenience. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and please be assured that they have been shared with our associates.

Arrived very late after a long flight arrived and had a rather confused checkin as apparently I had checked in earlier! Once that was sorted out, room was large and clean. Breakfast that was included in my rate was plentiful and pretty good. Would have liked bacon, as that is what I look forward to in the USA! Good value.

We stayed in this hotel on Christmas night while visiting my mother at her nearby senior citizen residence. Check in was quick and the room was clean and very spacious, with a microwave and fridge. Heating system was quiet and worked well on that cold night. You will want to bring a night light, as the bathroom fan and light are both on one switch, so if you leave the bathroom light on the fan will be loud. Our night light solved that problem and we slept well. Bed was very comfortable and room was quiet. Included buffet breakfast was quiet nice, with lots of choices and very helpful staff. We will definitely stay here again when visiting my mother.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review

Have stayed in the Murray Hill Best Western whenever we visit NJ family in the area. Always a good experience. However, this time there was problems with the TV and even after reporting it, TV picture didn't work. So we couldn't watch TV during our entire stay. Other than that, it is a nice, clean hotel with friendly staff.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for choosing us once again during your recent family visit, and I am pleased that you have always had a good experience. I am disappointed to learn that you experienced a problem with your TV (or TV channel) and even after reporting it, the problem was not resolved. Many times a reported issue with a TV is resolved immediately, and if the problem cannot be resolved, the entire should be replaced with a new set. I am confused as to why this did not happen because it is such a quick issue to resolve. Since I cannot determine the specifics of your stay based on the information provided in this review, I am requesting that you reach out to me directly to discuss it further. I will need your assistance in order to further investigate what happened during your stay, and work our a satisfactory resolution.

We are glad that you loved your visit with us because we anticipated many of your needs and provided the necessary amenities to make your stay more relaxing.

"OK place in an area that is an oasis of lodging"

04/12/2017

I come to the Berkeley Heights area a few times each year on business. My company usually puts me up at the BW Westfield Inn, which, other than the staff and the location, is just plain nasty. This was my first stay at the BW Murray Hill, and it is a better facility. There's not much around it from a shop/restaurant standpoint, but it was clean, and it does have a restaurant. Staff was cordial, but the gentleman who is in the restaurant in the mornings was a fantastic guy. Very warm, attentive and pleasant. Made us feel very welcome. They also serve wine in the evening. The rooms are spartan and are kinda awkward suites, with tiny bars, etc. Nice large TV in the bedroom; smallish oddly placed TV in the sitting room. The bed was hard as a rock, which made sleeping tough. Clean, but a couple of reddish carpet stains made me wonder. A/C units were relatively quiet. I read from another review that you could ask for firm or pillowtop beds...we were never given that option - I would have loved a softer bed. Hotel is very quiet, which is nice. I hear an Embassy Suites is opening up May 2018 a couple miles from this one.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
We are glad to hear that your first time with us was a welcoming experience. Your comments about our Breakfast Attendant will be shared with all of the team because one person really can make a difference regarding the guest experience. I am sorry that we were unaware of your requirement for a pillow top bed instead of our firm model, so I suggest you make your next reservation directly with one of our agents at the hotel. While there are in fact several lodging options in our area, we hope that the comfort and service we provide to our guests makes a difference in their respective choices. We hope to provide accommodations for you in the future.

A very good hotel for the value. The buffet hot breakfast has many varieties with made to order omelets and waffles. It has the usual eggs and bacon and ham, selection of hot and cold cereals. Service is also excellent. Room is clean with good supplies of in-room coffee and tea. All day coffee and tea in lobby, home made cookies occasionally.

Your feedback strikes a chord with us because you have noted the "value" of your experience and that shows our efforts have made a difference. Thank you for acknowledging our many amenities, but most importantly, the delivery excellent service!

"Family visits"

09/11/2017

We have stayed at this hotel many times during visits with my brother and his family. The hotel is quiet, clean with very comfortable beds. We have not used the breakfast during several of our visits because the cost for outsiders to join us seems too high for food quality and dining ambiance. The new restaurant does not have a menu that appeals to our tastes and again seems to be overpriced. Over the many years we have stayed here, the price has increased to a point were we have been encouraged to research other hotels in the area. Our past two stays have been at another hotel at which we were able to find great deals online.

"Awesome Service"

The best hotel and suites to stay; walking distance for food and other grocery. Interior and Cleanliness was great. The staff is really helpful. I loved my stay there and would prefer to stay there only

"clean and functional"

07/11/2017

OK. Its clean and functional. Not memorable but a good place to just to rest your head. Very quiet but make sure you eat before you arrive. There is an restaurant attached but not a 24 hour affair so no room service was available upon arrival. There are vending machines but one ate my last $3 change and didn't dispense anything ..aghhhh! Top tip: Steer clear of 'Sam's' Taxi service offered by the hotel...very expensive. I believe i was overcharged by $40.!! Not being local I decided to use the Lyft app the following morning for the same journey and the bill was 1/3rd the previous price by Sam's taxi service. Not a great advert for the Hotel. Staff were courteous enough.

In the morning the waiter at buffet felt as tho he needed to explain how the buffet worked then asked my three times what room I was in. He never asked any other guest. Then when I went to toast s bagel. He threw my whole plate away. I yelled and said I'm not done. He's reply. Get more

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Mr.Davis--as I have explained to you in a previous email exchange, our Breakfast Attendants greets each and every guest with instructions for our breakfast buffet, as well as a request for a name and room number. For accounting purposes, we track the number of breakfasts served against our Guest Ledger so that we can better predict activity trends on certain days of the week. I must point out that not only do we have a very ethnically diverse team of associates, but we also cater to an international clientele each day. I can assure you that each guest arriving for breakfast is given the same instructions, and asked the same questions. While I might not be able to change your perception about your stay, I can definitively state that our team takes great pride in the customer care provided to each and every guest.

"Good Breakfast but noise in the bathroom fan"

01/11/2017

Breakfast is one of the best I recall in USA that I have. However, I always target hotels that I can have a good night sleep. The bathroom of this hotel has a fun running continuously. So, there is that kind of noise that does not let you to sleep. Called the staff but they could not do anything (not their fault). Finally, needed to drive to the near CVS in the middle of the night to get some ear plugs. I was, then, able to sleep. Bring some ear plugs with you, if you are noise sensitive!. When I was looking the bathroom fan I noticed tons of dust there. I recommend the staff to consider cleaning that at least once a month.

Very nice place to stay. Quiet. Nice restaurant in the building. Custom omlets included with the free breakfast. Limited other choices close by walking distance. 5 minutes to Nokia / ALU / Bell labs. Fairly good access to/from I-78. I will stay here on my next trip.

Terrific hotel for business or pleasure. Comfortable rooms and a very friendly and welcoming staff. Complimentary breakfast had a wide assortment of both hot and cold items and was very good. There was a strip mall within walking distance where there were two grear restaurants (Italian and Chinese) plus a liquor store and small market.

While it is always nice to meet expectations, it is very rewarding when we can exceed the expectations of our guests.

This hotel is beautifully maintained. The beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get out in the morning. Full service breakfast was phenomenal; one couldn't ask for more. Value was incredible, i.e., fairly low prices. No indoor pool. Close to train to NYC.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Hospitality is all about providing comfort and value and we are thrilled that we exceeded your expectations during your recent stay.

We stayed at this hotel because we were attending a wedding nearby, and the family reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate. If you are planning a wedding and looking for a place for your out-of-town guests to stay, you might want to check it out. It worked great for us!

Very good hotel for business stay. With shuttle options to near by offices, ideal place to be. Less activities around if someone is looking for them, but good locality. Good helping staff. In room kitchen options are not there except microwave and fridge, for people looking for them, it is not suitable.

My overnight at BW Murray Hill was outstanding. Attended a nephew's christening and it turns out the BW was within walking distance of the church. Bravo! Wonderful welcome provided by Michele at the front desk. Special thanks, Michele, for securing that second floor room (244)...super quite but one little caveat -- better to be up and out on a Monday morning because a huge sanitation truck comes calling on the dumpster in the back...and it's quite the BOOM. Other than that "wake up call" the BW epitomized cleanliness (compliments to housekeeping team) and comfort. Would definitely stay at BW-MH again.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing some specifics during your "outstanding" stay with us a couple of weeks ago. We are glad that our location, walking distance to town, made traveling to the church much more convenient. Recognizing the efforts of Michele, as well as the housekeeping team, means a lot to us. I am sorry that the sanitation truck may have arrived earlier than the designated 9:00am pick-up time, and that it caused a disturbance. We are happy that, given the opportunity, you will gladly stay with us again!

The hotel was excellent as far as location. We were minutes away from our event. Hotel was clean and staff were excellent. The breakfast was standard buffet servings. The noise level of the AC/Heat unit was disturbing during the night. A quieter unit is recommended.

The hotel staff were most helpful, especially the front desk personnel. We were a large wedding group, and the front desk staff accommodated all our requests as best they can.

14/08/2017

We stayed at the Best Western Murray Hill Hotel & Suites in New Providence recently after a day of bad weather and multiple cancelled fights at Newark Airport. About a 15-20 minute cab drive away, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful front desk staff. The room was tastefully decorated with classic furniture and immaculately clean. Given that our bags were already checked, we appreciated the amenities and it was especially nice to have real cotton terrycloth robes in the room. There was time to try some really well-made hummus in the on-site restaurant before they closed. The surroundings were quiet and bed comfortable, so we were able to get some rest before our early departure. There was a free continental breakfast with many choices, or "grab & go" bag for those like us leaving early. We would definitely stay again when we're in the area!

10/08/2017

We recently stayed at the Best Western in New Providence for two nights as a result of having some work done in our home and were pleasantly surprised. Being up in years, having to leave your home is traumatic enough but the staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful they made us feel like we were on a vacation! The room and bathroom was spacious and very clean. There was even a microwave and refrigerator in our room. The food in the dining room was good. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay.

08/08/2017

We were visiting relatives in the area and this was a perfect location for us. The rates were the cheapest we have seen in a long time. The staff was attentive at the front desk and at the breakfast area. The air con was good in that it didn't turn on and off all night long, it was continuous. The decor was slightly older, but for one night it really didn't matter. The room was not far from our parked car, so that was nice too. The woman who checked us in gave us a King Firm mattress which was GREAT because I have neck problems. The breakfast had many, many choices-scrambled eggs, meats, juices, cook your own waffles, breads, muffins, and the usual. Also, freshly made oatmeal. All in all, a pleasant stay.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
It is nice to hear that our hotel was the perfect location for your recent family visit, and that the attentive associates provided many amenities to make your stay a very comfortable one. We feel that giving our guests a choice between a firm or pillow top mattress is an important one, because a restful night is what makes for a great day ahead. Thank you for recognizing the variety and quality of your breakfast experience because we do take pride in what we feel is a fantastic complimentary breakfast buffet. It means a lot to us when our guests share their experiences on Tripadvisor, so thank you for taking the time to offer your comments.

"A great place to stop over outside of NYC"

07/08/2017

We were headed out to Long Island and just wanted a place to stopover before facing NYC traffic. The Murray Hill turned out to be the perfect place. Feels like the last small town before you hit the metropolis. Hotel is clean, safe, friendly. Yet easy access to major routes into/around NYC. (People we met were staying there for going into Manhattan for a Broadway show. That seems a little far to me, but maybe not.) The downtown of New Providence is pleasant, and you can stroll into it from the hotel. One very good restaurant (with a full liquor license) downtown (Providence Bar and Kitchen). We didn't try the restaurant in the hotel, but it gets good reviews. Really friendly staff. I highly recommend it.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
This review of your recent experience with us certainly sums up everything we try to portray to our guests, as well as though following social media feedback.

I stay here every other month for work and it is always a nice welcoming when I arrive. Clean rooms, comfy beds, and good internet connection - that's what is important to me when traveling for work.

I always believed and will, 1st impression is the most important for any business. This exactly what I received at BW Plus Murray Hill. Ali who checked me in was extremely professional and was well versed with the procedures. Nevertheless, what truly set the stage for for a this great experience at this location was how sincere Ali was. She made me truly welcomed. I also like to recognize the the gentleman who was at the desk during the overnight shift and the gentleman who assisted with the food services in our conference room. This was true hospitality. Super clean rooms. Will definitely return whenever I return to the area.

"Damp Room"

21/07/2017

The hotel is in a really good location but my room was very damp for some reason. The carpet felt wet and the sheets felt damp.We thought we would give it a couple of hours to see if the conditions would improve and it did not. I reported the situation to the front desk receptionist and told they were totally booked. I asked if they could at least put me in another room for the night and I'll find another hotel the next night. The receptionist eventually found me another room. The rest of our stay was ok.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
I want to apologize for any inconvenience during your recent stay with us. While I am glad we were able to offer alternate accommodations that met your expectations, it is unfortunate that you had an initial negative impression of our hotel. After reviewing your incident upon departure, it appears that an under-performing A/C unit may have contributed to already humid conditions and this created more moisture than normal. Again, I am sorry that your stay started off with an issue but glad we were able to resolve it.

This was a nice hotel in a very quiet location. The staff was extremely helpful at check-in, during my short stay, and again at check-out. The Mediterranean restaurant offered great food and service. The breakfast was delicious, warm, and fresh. The guest room was comfortable, with nice bathroom facilities, a very comfortable bed, and very quiet surroundings. The hotel also offered a stress free drive back to the Newark Airport. All in all, it was a great break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Thank you for recognizing the very good service of the associates, as well as the good breakfast buffet. However, I am sorry that you experienced an issue with the AC unit during your stay.

My room was okay, but I saw a strange short curly hair in a place too close to the bed. Form that point on I could not relax. Furthermore, on the first Saturday night there was a group coming from a wedding and they kept running up and down the hall way banging on each other's doors and and continuing their party in the hallway. I had to convince the hotel staff that the group was actually too noisy for 1:30 AM before he talked to them.

I am very sorry to hear that you encountered a housekeeping deficiency and did not bring it to our attention because we would have provided new accommodations to you immediately. I wish we would have been made aware of this while you were here. I apologize that some late arriving guests took some time to settle in and that you were disturbed by them.

16/06/2017

My family stay in this hotel was below expectations. A simple request for a safe in the room went unanswered for the whole week I was there so I had to carry my valuables around. Breakfast buffet is reasonable and staff at the restaurant is very pleasant. Location is another inconvenient. It is my last visit to this hotel.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
I want to thank you for staying with us recently and I am sorry that your room was not equipped with a safe. We are in the process of installing safes in each of the guest rooms and should have this project completed in the coming weeks. I am sorry that you did not take advantage of the safe deposit boxes we have for our guests at the front desk because these are also supplied at no charge. While our location in the quiet suburban Borough of New Providence is very desirable to many people, we cannot do anything about those guests preferring the busy activity of a larger city. Thank you for recognizing the pleasant staff at the hotel and thank you again for staying with us.

"They need better cleaning service schedules."

12/06/2017

They skipped out on cleaning my room. I had stayed there for a short time(two nights to be exact), but they never came to clean my room on the second night. The remote for the tv wasn't very helpful and the Wi-Fi could have been much faster also.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
As mentioned in a previous correspondence with you regarding the cleaning concern, a communication error must have occurred regarding a "privacy" or "service" sign room status on your second day. I apologize if the error was the result of an oversight by the room attendant. Like most hotels, a call to the front desk requesting service in the event of an oversight, will usually correct the situation. I am not sure what your comment about the remote implies but we do not have a channel list card in each room for the convenience of the guest. I am sorry if you experienced an isolated situation with our WiFi because the feedback we receive is usually quite reliable. Thank you very much for your feedback.

The rooms were nice but needed some bathroom updates, example: have separate switch for exhaust fan . Otherwise very comfortable . The location was very convenient and close to shopping( several malls within 15 miles,

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
While we are glad you enjoyed the guest room during your recent stay, we are sorry that you could not experience one of our renovated bathrooms. We should have all of the bathrooms renovated by the end of the summer, and hope that you have the opportunity to see the difference. Thank you very much for staying with us.

Rooms had been renovated since I last stayed here. Very comfortable with excellent Internet service. Would like " real" cream in refrigerator for coffee in room, not artificial packages. Did like having Keurig in the room

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
It is nice to hear from someone who has noticed the many updates and renovations throughout the hotel, and that you are sharing your comments on Tripadvisor. We are pleased that your recent stay was very comfortable and we hope to see you on your next trip to the area.

I was visiting family in the area and traveling with my daughter, daughter in law and 9 month old grandson. I called the Murray Hill Inn to book 2 rooms for the night. The person taking my call was very helpful and accommodating. Because I was traveling with a small child, it was important to have adjoined rooms. I was assured this was not a problem. Upon check in we were directed to our rooms that were exactly what we needed. The hotel is older, but was clean and the staff was especially courteous and helpful. We did not need to utilize the train, but I did notice that there was a train station nearby that would be convenient if a guest was wanting to visit New Your City for the day.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your recent experience on Tripadvisor and for mentioning some highlights from your visit. We are pleased to hear that your request for adjoining rooms was honored, and that we met your expectations for cleanliness.

What a lovely surprise this hotel stay was. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere but don't let that fool you. Take a walk (yes walk) down to the small but quaint town centre. We visited during Easter holidays so there was a quiet buzz. The hotel appears to be a popular place for visiting family's as central meeting point whether attending weddings etc. We loved the location and hope in the future to short break here in the future. Homely, warm, welcoming atmosphere with friendly front house staff and handyman. Clean and comfortable. Would recommend for short stay in the area.

I love the BW brand. Especially the PREMIER & PLUS hotels. So booking this knowing it's a PLUS I had great expectations. The area is great and clean. Nice location near great BYOB restaurants. Unfortunately the hotel has not been updated. Its very old fashion looking. Decor was not updated in years. The beds were hard. The front service desk staff were nice but that's it. Nothing to write home about or brag about in regards to this property. I will say that the hotel was IMMACULATE! You can eat off the floor! It was quite average stay.

Business trip near Newark? This is the place to be. Good breakfast, comfort bed, decent gym with good and warmth client service. Feels like been in a small place in an episode of Gilmore Girls. Nice surprise is coming from an afternoon run and be welcome with home made cookies and chicken wings at the frontdesk!

Stayed 2 nights w/ my daughter and her friend for a nearby dance competition. Our room and bathroom were extremely clean. The mattress was a little firm, but the bedding was soft and clean. Overall, a good sleep experience. We had a great nights sleep. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good and we also ate Sat night dinner at Moe's (onsite restaurant) and the food and service were incredible. We also enjoyed listening to the guitarist.

Room was large, comfortable and had a sitting area and 2 flat screen TVs. Internet was fast! Room tastefully decorated, bathroom spacious. Desk staff friendly. Would be helpful to have entrances at the end of the long wings for loading/unloading luggage. Included breakfast offers hot and cold choices. Long line at waffle maker. Food stations spaced for easier access; attractively displayed. Sunday morning and dining room was very crowded - no seats.

Kerry L, General Manager at Best Western Plus Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Seeing that we provided "great value" to a guest shows that we exceeded their expectations, and we thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Large and comfortable rooms, along with spacious bathrooms, set us apart and we are glad that they had a positive impact on your stay with us. As for your breakfast experience, even though we can seat 70+ guests in the dining room, there are times over busy weekends when guests decide to meet at the same time. As a result, there are rare occasions when seating is limited but usually some tables free up in a timely manner. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you in the future.

Only 20 mins from EWR, this BW is a great option for a business traveler on a budget. Close to highways, good wifi, gym and an EXCELLENT onsite restaurant - Moe's Bistro. Breakfast is included in the rate and you can't beat the selection, even made to order omelettes! Dinner here was also very good and tasty- Filet Mignon BLT with fries $16. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience on Tripadvisor, and for the objective feedback. I am disappointed to hear that a "good" weekend stay was overshadowed by your breakfast experience. We usually receive very high marks for our complimentary buffet but it is apparent that we fell short in your case. We regularly host large groups over the weekends, and while we do staff the hotel accordingly, there can be isolated instances whereby a rush of activity can enter the dining room at the same time. I apologize if you experienced such a moment, and that certain items may not have been appropriately replenished. Thank you again for being our guest this past weekend.

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.

"Horrible housekeeping"

25/09/2016

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
Please allow me to apologize for the poor housekeeping experience during your recent stay. It is confusing, to say the least, as to why your room was only partially cleaned during your stay and I am very sorry for any inconvenience. It would be very helpful for me if I knew a little bit more about this incident since I cannot see any documentation about this while you were with us. If it is not too much trouble I would appreciate it if you could contact me directly so that I can confirm the room you occupied as well as the dates of your visit. Again, I am very sorry for any inconvenience because this incident is not indicative of the performance of our room attendants.

I am very sorry that you had an unpleasant experience with us recently and it is unfortunate that we were not aware of it while you were staying with us.

Again, I am sorry very that we did not have an opportunity to resolve this while you were with us.

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

"Pretty good one-night stay"

10/07/2016

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
We are glad that our convenient location near the Murray Hill train station was a factor in selecting us as your hotel. Thank you for recognizing our "homey feel" and it is always great to hear that the comfortable bed met your expectations. I am sorry if the A/C unit was running continuously because usually the "auto" selection will allow for the fan to cycle on and off. We hope you do come to try Moe's Bistro because it is a fantastic restaurant and quickly becoming a local favorite. Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent visit to the New Providence area.

"Still Aging and Same Issues"

3
28/06/2016

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
First of all, I would like to thank you for being a repeat guest to our hotel over the past several years, and for taking a few moments to share your experience. While the hotel was built in the 1980's we are pleased with the many renovations and upgrades we have completed in the past couple of years. Your comment about our high occupancy was accurate and since we often have limited or no availability on weekends, we do in fact call to confirm reservations prior to arrival. I agree with you that it would be nice to place two Queen beds in some rooms but the dimensions of the rooms with two beds only allow for double beds due to federal accessibility requirements. I apologize if the settings and/or performance of the A/C unit created an excessive amount of moisture in the room, and that particular unit has now been replaced. Thank you for recognizing the extensive breakfast buffet as being a "bright spot" because it has become very popular with our guests. Finally, our renovated bathrooms are equipped with commercial grade granite and tile throughout and I am sorry if the darker colors did not suit your preference. Thank you again for taking the time to post your comments on Tripadvisor and we hope to see you again!

"front desk Management lacks professionalism"

17/06/2016

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.

We needed to attend a wake and funeral. We stayed at Best Western. Staff at front desk was very helpful in telling us how to get to where we needed to go. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a plus and there were staff in there too who were just great!

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Hotel & Suites, responded to this review
It is always pleasing to us when we hear how much our guests enjoyed their stay in the "lovely suburban neighborhood" of New Providence. Our location appeals to both corporate and leisure travelers, and we are especially glad that you found our breakfast buffet to be one of the best ever! Thank you for sharing your experience so that others might consider staying with us as well.

17/05/2016

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
We are pleased to see that for the most part your stay with us was a good experience. All of the digital A/C units in the hotel were purchased within the last couple of years, and I am sorry if you found it difficult to operate. Thank you for staying with us and I hope you choose to stay with us on your next trip to the area.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay in our pleasant suburban community, and that the hotel provided you with an excellent value. We hope you will stay with us again when our ongoing updates and renovations are complete so that you can experience the difference.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
We are sorry to hear that your recent experience at our hotel will not be remembered for our service and amenities, but pleased that the cleanliness and value met your expectations. The hotel has been updating rooms, both in the public areas as well as guest rooms, for many months and we are sorry you did not experience these updates. Please come visit again when you are in the New Providence area and we are confident you will be pleased.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Reviews like yours remind us why we enjoy what we do and how satisfying it is when our efforts are recognized. We are pleased to hear that you had a great stay and that our bedding package and "impeccable" bathroom exceeded your expectations! I am sorry to hear about the lack of a particular juice selection because we always rotate between 3 different juices for breakfast, with Orange always being one of them. Again, my apologies if there was a replenishment issue during your stay but I am glad that the rest of our breakfast buffet pleased you. Thank you so much for giving us such objective feedback and we hope to have an opportunity to serve you in the future.

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.

We are pleased to see that Moe's Bistro exceeded your expectations, and that seems to be the consensus with our other guests as well. As I discussed with you while you were staying with us, we have tested the internet access points in question and they have since been replaced. I am very sorry that you and your colleagues experienced an inconsistent experience with our WiFi. Thank you for recognizing the politeness of our associates during your stay. Hopefully, our recently purchased Multi-Functional Trainer will be installed in our Fitness Room for your return visit to the hotel.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your experience, albeit not a very good one, and I am sorry that we were not aware of any of your concerns until after your departure. I apologize that during your 4 night stay that one or more of the highlighted issues impacted your stay with us. During a thorough inspection of the room you occupied we were unable to duplicate the problems you pointed out, but have taken preventive measures just in case. While I am pleased to see that the performance of our associates met your expectations, I am disappointed that isolated maintenance concerns impacted your overall impression of our hotel. Again, I am sorry that we did not have an opportunity to address any of these concerns while you were staying with us.

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!

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.

Thank you for recognizing the efforts of the hotel associates because they take great pride in exceeding the expectations of our guests. As you stated, our hot/cold breakfast buffet options are varied but I am sorry if it did not meet your specific expectations. We do prepare our eggs separately from items containing gluten, and we provide 2 types of gluten-free cereal, as well as a variety of fruits. Please feel free to contact me directly with some suggestions as to how we can better accomplish our goal of providing something for everyone.

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

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
We are always pleased when our guests take the time to share their experiences, and offer objective feedback for us to improve upon. Allow me to start with the "misses" by saying that I am sorry we were not aware of the inconvenience with the heat/ac unit because we certainly would have changed you to another room immediately. These units can of course experience isolated issues and we try our best to resolve the problem once it is reported. The restricted flow shower heads in our guest rooms are in fact a brand requirement, but we will certainly check to see if the one in your room is restricting flow more than it should. We recently purchased new equipment for our Fitness Center but the Multi-Functional Trainer (to replace the gym set you referred to) is on back-order. I am sorry that it was not on site during your recent stay. Finally, although our "check in" time is 3pm, we always do our best to accommodate early arrivals because we prefer that guests not have to wait in our lobby. However, we are 100% occupied over the Christmas holiday and often our "departures" request late checkouts, and this pushes everything back a bit. Although we still have rooms ready for our arrivals by 3pm, we simply cannot accommodate the number of early arrivals. In response to the "befuddled" Guest Services Representative, we have just installed a new property management system and there is of course a learning curve. I am sorry for any inconvenience during the process. In response to the "Hits" from your stay, I want to thank you for recognizing a few of our strengths as well. We are pleased that a "highlight" of your stay was the breakfast buffet and the Breakfast Attendant. We understand the importance of this guest amenity and try very hard to deliver the very best! We do hear great feedback regarding our comfortable beds and glad that you were pleased as well. Thank you so much for your comments and we hope you will stay with us should your travels bring you near New Providence in the future.

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.

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.

Kerry L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Murray Hill Inn & Suites, responded to this review
I am very sorry to hear that you had a problem with your room, and that we did not have an opportunity to correct the problem. I wish we would have known that you were unhappy with the accommodations because we could have moved you immediately. Your comment about remodeling is timely because we have been undergoing renovations for the past few months. While phase one has addressed the guest bathrooms, furnishings, and Moe's Bistro, the public areas (to include the lobby and front desk area) will be completed in phase two, beginning next month.

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.

Thank you so much for giving a considerable amount of detail with your feedback from your recent stay. Your overall experience of a "great place" tells us that we succeeded in providing you with superior customer care. As you mentioned, we do try to handle the small details as well (plastic diffuser for drapes) because we know they matter. Finally, our "nice spread" for breakfast is exactly the feedback we like to hear!

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.

We are glad that our location was convenient for your recent family visit. While we do cater to business clientele during the week as you stated, we feel that our weekend guests also enjoy the comfort of our rooms and great breakfast buffet. Thank you for sharing your experience.
