Verified Reviews of Empire Meadowlands Hotel by Clarion

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I will never go back!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Upon checking in l was somewhat impressed, the place looked good and very clean. They explained their usual things to me and said that breakfast was $10 per person extra if we wanted it. We went to our room and we noticed we didn't have a microwave nor a mini fridge, called front desk to ask for one and I had to pay an extra $10 to have one brought up to my room. Now, when I made the reservation on line, all of these things were included. When I opened the faucet in the shower, the water first came out a muddy color, mold and mildew in the bathroom and a bad odor like swamp water that wouldn't go away. There was a family who had kids running up and down the hallway, laughing, screaming and teens going in and out the room slamming the doors and carrying on until about 4-5 in the morning. Horrible experience! I have points with Best Western but wanted to try something new, never again.

"Worst hotel experience ever"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
When booking this hotel we were going by the 4 out of 5 star review. When we arrived at the hotel at around 7 there was no one at the front desk to check us in. A security guard had to go find her and it still took her 10 minutes to come. Once we were in the room it was not the room we were expecting. The outlet was coming out of the wall, there was hair in one of the beds, there was a plastic bag over the smoke detector. These are just a few things to name. When checking out a day early the front desk lady was very rude to us in explaining their refund policies. She would not give us anything to show we checked out a day sooner until we repeatedly asked for the manager. We came to NJ due to a family emergency and this hotel made our experience that much worse. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone I know.
