Nice large room, a little tired, I think it changed hands recently, but very clean. Perfect location for travel into the city. Caught the bus in every morning, only 15 minutes. Would stay again. Great staff, very helpful.

The only bad thing about this hotel is getting to and from JFK Airport; next time we would try to land at Newark. A taxi was arranged for us (Secaucus Taxi Service) by Katie, the General Manager, to pick us up from JFK. We didn't arrive at JFK until 2.15am (plane was diverted due to storms, so we were late.)...

We chose this hotel because of two things - price and connection with Manhattan. Both of them are more than excellent for the purpose of the trip. Hotel offers very nice breakfast and bus 320 in front of hotel to Port Authority in Manhattan/Times Square. Ticket is US $3.95 one way and you can purchase very easily at the bus... More

It is a decent hotel with a good breakfast not to far from NYC or the train station. Would stay there again. Similar to the Laquinta next door. Rooms were quiet. Hotel could use an update. Main reason was pricepoint.

Formerly a Hampton Inn, the design will be familiar. Super convenient location right off route 3 near the NJ Turnpike and close to the Lincoln Tunnel. There is a bus stop right across the street where for $3.95 each way you can ride to the Port Authority and not need to worry about driving and parking in Manhattan. The hotel... More

What a wonderful hotel. A "gem" and a joy to stay at. Thought it might be a hassle staying over the Lincoln Tunnel when we wanted to go into NYC...but the bus is so convenient and downtown bus authority is so close to Times Square. Service was great, breakfast was good and always well stocked. Housekeeping was great. Only incidence... More

The Service was great . The family loved your staff manager Frank Spinelli, Erika Rios who was very helpful to my wife when it came to shopping location and Mr. Alex is a very friendly person. We loved our stay and we will choose you again.

Just stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 5 children in 2 rooms. Arrived very late the first night (12:30am) to find a party going on in the next room along with a strong marijuana smell in one of our rooms. Called to front desk to report both concerns and was assured it would be taken care of.... More

I was told this hotel was formerly a Hampton Inn and it still had the bedding & look of a Hampton property. The staff was helpful & breakfast was plentiful each day. They do take on numerous student motorcoach groups in the spring & summer so you could find yourself in a hotel with a lot of kids, just fyi.... More
