EWR is like 55 min and PHL is like 1:20. There aren't many hotels in the area. Will you be here for shabbos?

There's a Hilton on Route 70 that may be walkable to a shul (not sure) but if you really want to be in the middle of the community, there are apartment rentals which is a furnished apartment rentable by the night. Probably more expensive than 1 hotel room but cheaper than 2 (if you otherwise get conjoined rooms). Then you get a full kitchen and dining room too...

Other than the Hilton or Lakewood hosts, the only other normal places are a drive out of LKWD possibly 25 min or so kind of defeating a lot of the conveniences in LKWD if you need to keep going back to hotel and wasting time.

Thank you both.

PHL has cheaper parking. Check on Groupon. I fly from there often with BA points as American has very few flights from Newark.

I would not need parking. I would rent a car.

How many kids? Hilton could be fine if you want to hang around LKWD the next day.

If not, there are some hotels north of Lakewood (think Edison area) or northeast (Longbranch, Eatontown) so if you're flying out of EWR the next day look there.

If flying out of PHL the next day look west of LKWD in the Hamilton or Cherry Hill areas.

It's a real problem here. I got hit by a car,  got a car door opened on me, and had a car that merged into the parking spots to turn right when I was biking there (and I swung into the curb and went flying,  when I stood up the car was gone).
I'm not who you think I am.

Not that it absolves the driver of any responsibility in the case you described, but do you bike with or against traffic? I once had a close call with a biker going the wrong way

It's unbelievable, the traffic situation in this town has gotten horrendous,

Even within the past year of living here I've noticed a massive increase in traffic jams

They are Brooklyn drivers who got out of the traffic.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

All lady drivers, (like the one that banged into my car this morning in front of my face but drove off) they are all from lakewood...
