Very scatchy neighborhood. We didnt feel like staying in there but rooms were already booked and paid for and we were tired to go searching somewhere else. We were scared to leave our cars at the outdoor parking lot. Rooms are a disaster, old and outdated. Air Conditioning provided by means of cheap window shakers that are loud and dirty....

We wanted a cheap hotel outside of the city. 10 mins away from path subway into the city. Cheapest hotel we could find. Checked in no problem. Police all around the area, constant sirens. Church group out and about. Hotel room wasn't bad. Building itself older so expectations were not high. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. It's cheap for...

The neighbourhood is a bit rough, but I am here to review the hotel. The hotel was value for money. I did a last minute booking and checked in early. My room was available for me by 9:30 am although the check in time is 2 pm. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I use Uber to go places...

The neighborhood is a bit sketchy. The taxi driver who dropped me off at the hotel told me again and again to be careful in the neighborhood. The room itself is big enough, but the bed is extremely uncomfortable. It feels like lying on a sweaty sheet. I didn't fall asleep until at least 4am in the morning. And at...

Honestly, we read the reviews before coming here but our accommodations at an Air BnB were cancelled at the last minute so we had to scramble and find a place to stay for two nights in order to attend an event that we had already paid for so this was our last resort since everything else was already booked up...

I had to stay over as after my long trans-atlantic flight my next trip with United airlines was cancelled... it was late, around 9 pm and I picked this hotel and paid a lot of money to get at least some sleep before my next flight to Florida. It was terrible - the bathroom was in process of renovating! It...

I really believe that some improvement can be made with regards to the Rooms, the Bathrooms are in need of plumbing work (Repairs), also, their Heating System is in need of work. Other than that, the location is Great

My husband and 8 year old daughter were in Newark for a hockey game and decided to stay over due to weather. The room was ok for a dive hotel. Looks like it use to be a nice place. Room was obviously not cleaned, my daughter found a spoon and candle in a drawer, she had to stop exploring after...

If you want to leave with cockroaches and mice please welcome to Hotel Riviera. If you want to know about hotels styles during Soviet union times just visit this place. The staff is quite friendly they changed our room at 1 am because we found a mouse!

This place is great if you like cockroaches, crime, rude people and uncleanliness.The room I was sent to was disgusting the receptionist became very agitated at the mere sight of me returning to the desk. I guess this comes from her hearing horrible things about this hotel on a daily. As if my mind wasn't already made up, I will...
