Good choice for visiting families and extended stays. Great location near both path and light rail. Nice to have a mini kitchen and large room. Prices are usually pretty fair too. Excellent if you want to go to NYC and not have to pay crazy NY hotel prices. Lots of restaurant choices and supermarket and BJ's close by. Also Newport... More

Recently stayed here for a couple of days, no car so relied on light rail which was ok, good for access to Newport, Hoboken and path train to Manhatton, room was fine, clean & quiet. Able to get a coffee in reception area, purchase other items at high cost but free wi-fi is a bonus

We received a free upgrade to a one bedroom suite on arrival. The room was very spacious and impressive! There were some minor problems with the bathtub faucet, but the room was well equipped with two TVs, plenty of wardrobe space and drawers, a sofa and coffee table, a dining table, a large kitchen and reasonably sized bathroom. It's location... More

I had a lovely time here. The room was updated and clean. The rooms with a view were all sold out but it didn't really matter. You can literally step outside and walk to the boardwalk across the street and have all the view you want. Absolutely beautiful location! We had some trouble working the AC in the room and... More

I stayed here November 27, 2013 to December 4, 2013. Long story short I arrived in New Jersey on November 21st for a 2 week vacation to visit New York. We originally rented an apartment but less than a week in, the building next door to ours caught fire. So there we were, the night before Thanksgiving and homeless in... More

The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The room was clean and spacious. There are rooms that overlooked the river, but ours overlooked the Light Rail and part of the financial district. Still, at night the view was quite nice. We had a queen studio and it included a full size sink, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. It even had... More

We stayed in Candlewood Suites in May 2014. Our experience was great - very close (1 minute walk) to the train station, grocery store near by (walking distance), water taxi to Battery Park - 10 minutes relaxed walk, but the most amazing was the view - the whole Manhattan not even 5 minutes walk from the hotel! We could see... More

We didn't spend too much time in our room, due to the College Graduation that we had to run into NYC for, but what little time we spent there; all was good! getting into Jersey City was not very easy, due to some road construction! the woman at the front desk was very attentive and provided us with 4 rooms...

Lets face it. Nothing in the vicinity can be taken even if you pay $ 100 over the fare here. So that way, i think it will be unfair to compare Candlewood with other options like Westin around. It was a calculated risk for me, taking in the view of one night stay and bare minimum time available to stay... More
