I stayed for one night. I arrived late, and recieved a key to a room at the 9th floor, but when I tried to turn on the lights in the room, there was no light in the room. So I went down, and the guard gave me another key, and I tried to open the door, but I couldn't open the door. So I went down, and the guard asked one man who lived there if he could open the door and come down and let us know. The man went up, but never came down, so another guard went up with me with a third key, and the man had managed to open the door, but there was no bath gel, as there was at the first room(but I had already given that key to the guard down stairs, and was tired of all the fuzz), so we opened the third room, but there was no light and no bath gel. So I went for the second room, and I thought that I could lock it, but I discovered that I couldn't, but then I just though that I hoped no one tried to take my stuff when I went to the bathroom and showers. Because I was tired and wanted to sleep after a long trip overseas.
The elevator was quick in elevating when you had it at your floor, but slow in arriving at your floor, more times I just took the stairs because it just never came. The elevator was way grose, the roof and air holes was just really with fungus and all.
It was an ok room, nice people, ok, bathroom and toilets. I just couldn't sleep to much because of my jetleg, and I had to wait til 8 am before I could check out.
But the guy who was there before 8 am(another than the two guards in the evening) was very helping with bus and used his iphone to figure out bus hours, that was really nice.
I ended up paying less that what the internet said, so that was nice, but I would have preferred it if I got a room that had lights, that I could open and that had bath gel. It would have been nice if the guard had actually got up from his chair and tried to help me.
But I survived.
I didn't like Newark, that place, but it was a good option for me because of my journey.
I guess I would go there again if I arrived so late, and it was the best thing to do. But then I would remember to bring bath gel if I wanted to wash myself good without that lame handsoap. But I hope I will go somewhere else. Don't want too much of that fungus breathing inside of me from the elevator.
