    The Hotel is basically designed for people on the road in new Jersey - not sure if I would stay there while in New york.

    The location was perfect to where our intended event was held. I was surprised by the nice decor inside the lobby. The rooms are clean and has all the amenities one would need. The price is really affordable too. Would highly recommend this place and will come back here again.

    As a health conscious person, I did not like their free continental breakfast because they served nothing but sugary, high carbohydrate food, so we ended looking for another place to eat breakfast.

    I had made 2 reservations through Booked.net but when we arrived at the Kenilworth Inn they only had a record of 1 reservation. It did not seem to bother them that there was a problem, I guess since they did have another available room...but it bothered me! Also this survey consists of answering more than 4 questions.

    The location - close to the freeway and close to path (train) to New York city. Good infrastructure close by (supermarket, post office, liquor store and small restaurants)

    The hotel is dated and needs renovation badly. Everything is damaged. The biggest disappointment was the cleaning crew. The rooms were never cleaned proper during the stay.

    I reaked of cigarette smoke and I was in a non smoking room. The other guests were drunk and loud. There was a fight in the hall at 2 am. There was mold in the bathroom and with cracked and missing grout and tiles.

    Quiet, discreet and a 20 minute ride to the airport.

    A bit on the tacky side.

    All the staff was great and friendly, maids, continental breakfast lady, desk! Lobby was pretty.

    The Complimentary Breakfast was great. Rooms were nice BUT one of our stuffed chairs and rug by window smelled like Urine. Our Towel rack kept falling off wall and beds were uncomfortable...

    The rooms need updating. Almost e everything is worn out and old.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the front desk (Bob and Rob?) and the lady that set up the breakfast

    The "deluxe grand" continental breakfast was a little lacking-too many carbs and very little protein

    Our stay at Kenilworth Inn started well. They were happy to receive and hold on to several Amazon orders that I had delivered to the hotel. Good service, all boxes were waiting at reception when I arrived. Unfortunately things went downhill from there!

    The room I booked in this non-smoking hotel smelled like a group of chain- smokers just had a party in it. Then the next day we were informed that the swimming pool, the primary reason to select this hotel, was closed until further notice due to maintenance. When I complained about this, I was offered a compensation. At check-out his turned out to be a whopping $10 discount on a $700 stay… As I didn’t want to have a verbal fight in front of other customers and spoil the start of our holidays, I decided to leave the discussion until later. I sent the hotel an email outlining my complaint and the request to do something a bit more substantial than then measly $10 they did so far. It’s been 6 weeks since, and I have yet to receive a reply… If you’re just looking for a place to sleep with decent access to Ney York city, and don’t have high expectations, Kenilworth Inn could be an option. Expect a bit more than a roof, and you’re in for a disappointment. The place has potential, but has an “has been” feel to it. Apart from our own issues with the room, I’ve heard several guests complain about theirs at the reception desk. Breakfast is poor to start with, limited choice and availability. When we were there, this was made worse by the fact that the place catered for groups of Chinese students on study-trips to the US. If you didn’t show up before the crack of dawn and beat them to it, you were likely to find a near empty buffet! Last but not least, don’t bother to ask the manager directions to go downtown New York in the most efficient way. You’ll end up with a tour of the continent… Drive to the Rose Park station, approx. 5 min by car, and take the train downtown. Or drive to Liberty State Park and take the ferry to Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty and then onto downtown Manhattan.

    Hotel staff very friendly and forthcoming. Although hotel is rather old, cleaning and maintenance is done very well. Location is ideal for visiting Manhattan by using the train from Elizabeth nj.

    Unfortunately the pool was empty due to serious leakage and we were told that this is already a problem during the whole season. This was a serious setback, but overall we had a great stay here.
