"Horrible" Econo Lodge Newark International Airport Tip by rarzt1

Econo Lodge Newark International Airport, Elizabeth: 271 reviews and 0 photos

Everything about this motel stinks. The mattress was one of the worst I have ever slept on - I could feel the very slightest movement of the other person in bed. The water coming out of the sink was a trickle. The housekeeping staff left a full complement of towels only two out of the four days we were there. The room was tiiiny. The breakfast was in an empty tiny motel room with one table and six chairs for a motel with at least a hundred rooms and was what a third world country might provide if they were trying to imitate an American motel.

But on top of this all, on the third night at 12:30 am our door suddenly opens (fortunately the chain was attached) and a stranger exclaims "there's somebody in here!" On calling the desk the night guy has the stupidity to tell me that he wasn't sure the room was ocupied but he didn't want to call because it was so late. So he gave a key to a total stranger to find out if the room was vacant. Are there stupider people in the world? When I spoke to the manager about this she was totally blase -"These things happen."

Be warned. Don't stay here!
