I would try the Country Inn or Hampton Inn ..
However..you should know that not many places in the area offer a cruise packager per se...many of the hotels are near EWR airport and while it is good to have heads in beds, they have enough contract rooms with airlines that cruising is a very small percentage..
SKIP the Best Western and Wyndham Garden...
the Holiday Inn would be my choice if i was really on a budget. Your other choice would be to book a park and fly rate and then your own transfers...expect to pay AROUND $50 each way give or take, for cab and/or car service..
click the link below to my blog..there are some other ideas there...
ALSO sometimes, some of the Marriott brands near EWR offer park & cruise..and we can give you info about transfers on your own (actually it is in the blog..)
