The location is near to the Jersey shore opposite Manhattan so the view from the shore is great and you are also close to the Path so it is easy to get to Manhattan. However do not expect a view from the hotel as it is sat back from the shore and most rooms look onto other buildings. The Candlewood... More

We only stayed one night while visiting NYC for the weekend, but having stayed in Jersey City before, we knew it was convenient to access Manhattan. We got an excellent price with an Express Deal. The desk help was as nice as could be, and so were the rest of the staff that we encountered during our brief stay. They... More

This is not a fancy Hyatt or a hotel with a fancy lobby. No marble fountains here. This hotel successfully caters to travelers who need a home base. Saw guests from all over the world .... Lots of different languages. If you are traveling for business or pleasure this is convenient, friendly and safe. Self parking inside locked gates. Honor... More

The place is stuck in the 1980s. If you liked the 80s and you like your décor in the 80s then this is the place for you. The rooms are big, granted but there are no redeeming features unless you like a kitchenette. the fridge and ice maker are really loud. I'm missing the key feature though there's a video... More

We chose the Candelwood Suites in Jersey City from Internet options in anticipation of our 5 day trip to explore NYC. Candelwood Suites in Jersey City provided even more than we had hoped for as far as comfort, convenience to public transportation and pleasant neighborhood. Staying on Manhatten was not in the budget. While looking for more affortable alternatives Candlewood... More

Stayed here for 6 nights on a visit to New York. Great location with access to the local PATH station only minutes away so convenient to get into Manhattan. Staff were helpful and the room was a good size. It did smell of cooking from the previous stay (as the kitchen is built into the bedroom) and you are unable... More

This is supposed to be a review of the hotel and I’ll get to that. But first as a NYC visitor newbie (2nd visit), I must speak to the overwhelming sense of historical significance I found while staying at this hotel. First, was the view from our room. I was speechless when we first looked out the window and saw... More

The suites are used by many business travellers wanting close proximity to the Jersey City and Manhattan business districts. However, I found them convenient as a tourist base for exploring New York and surrounding areas. The suites are self contained self-service apartments with fridge, dish washer, stove top and microwave oven. The complex also provides free use of the gym... More

Stayed here while visiting Jersey City, NJ and New York City. Love the honor bar concept in their convenience store, where you can purchase snacks and amenities at your leisure while staying at the property. The suite was on the small side, but you can't beat having free internet access, a comfortable bed, workstation, full kitchenette and a nice view... More

Enjoyed stay at this extended stay hotel. Good location near Hudson river with access to river walk and city activities. I always have a good stay at Candlewood Suites Hotels, clean rooms, and full kitchen. No breakfast but free laundry!
