OK room, good location...

I chose this hotel because it is a Marriott property and close to Newark Airport. Also had a free breakfast and a swimming pool. My 6 year old could swim the night before our trip and burn off some energy. NOTE: The pool is small. There was a group of kids that were loud, obnoxious, and rude in the pool as well as occupying the exercise room. Being how loud they were and proximity to the front desk, I was astounded the hotel staff didn't say anything. There were about 15+ kids and it made the atmosphere uncomfortable, loud, and not enjoyable.
As for the room, very basic but clean. Room was hot all night but bed was comfortable. One thing I will point out is the room was quiet and you could barely hear airplanes or people in hallway. This was nice.
We left at 5:30am so missed breakfast, but got small carry out bags. These had a water, an apple, and a danish. This is nice if you miss the breakfast, as at least you get something. The hotel staff took our bags and loaded the van. Short ride to airport. The man was courteous and helpful with bags.
Lastly, we did get a ride to hotel and needed to park a car. It was $10.00 to park which i thought was unnecessary. This fee should be included with a one night stay. It was also annoying that you needed your room key to get OUT of the lot.
Overall I would likely look for a different hotel next time that was in a similar price range with free parking. I would stay here again if I was unable to find one.
