Ramada Compliment - Ramada EWR-Good Refugee Service For Passengers Of Cancelled Flights
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY -- The Ramada Inn-Newark Int. Airport has lodging for passengers of cancelled flights down to a science. The process begins after you get your vouchers from the airline (hopefully) and get the shuttle at the P4 station on the Airport Tram. The shuttles run about every 30 minutes. At the desk a smiling and sympathetic Ramada employee (The man who greeted us really was smiling and sympathetic) takes your voucher, hands you a room key and points out the sandwich shop & Teddy's Sports Grill to you where you can use your food vouchers. Our lodging voucher, by the way, was accepted for our stay with no cash or credit card required. Your food vouchers are for $12 or $6 depending on what you were able to get from the airlines. Most of the food items are priced at $6 or $12(or less) and the food is really quite good with large portions. Or you can use your vouchers for drinks, if you're so inclined. The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean, have soap & shampoo for a shower or bath, and comfortable beds. On the whole, the staff is efficient, professional, and friendly. Much better than what you most likely experienced at the airport. Even if you didn't get vouchers, I'd stay here since it's a well run motel and close to the airport with a reliable shuttle every 1/2 hour so you can get your flight (with luck) and proceed to your destination. Rooms begin at $65 and they have 234 of them so there is usually space for a few loads of Airline Refugees.
