I stayed a night in this hotel just before traveling to New York. I asked the location of the parking lot and they told me it was few blocks away from the hotel. And it sounded very easy to find. BUT It was dark night and our family wasn't familiar with the location so we couldn't find the parking lot.... More

Just checked in about an hour ago. I parked out front as there were no more than 40 or so parking spaces (despite saying "ample parking"). They said there was satellite parking about a mile away with a shuttle she called a taxi service. I asked if I could leave my bags, especially thinking a taxi might be cramped if... More

Stay away!! I cant wait for check out. I am only staying here because I'm taking a class that starts at 6:40 am. The only good things are: friendly kitchen and cleaning staff, close to NY...that's it. Worst: limited restaurant menu...very limited, looks old and need repairs ASAP, no parking, internet does not works. Let's see how the rest of... More

I stayed here five nights, taking the bus into Manhattan regularly to see New York. The hotel staff were friendly, the room was great. I had one meal at the hotel and it was fine. There is a 24 hour Walmart a 10 minute drive away. Spent most of my time in New York as the bus is easy and... More

I had to book a hotel while we were driving. I found the Empire Meadowlands by Clarion and booked it but didn't know what to expect. Check-in was very easy and the desk clerk was very friendly. Parking is limited by only a few steps away from the main entrance. When we got to our room I was very surprised... More

We were grateful the Meadowlands had a room. We had tried since Nyack, New York to find a room; all hotels were sold out. Our room was excellent. When we opened the windows we were overlooking Manhattan and could see the tall skyscrapers. It was excellent! We did not eat breakfast at the hotel but located a restaurant on our... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The manager is evasive and the staff simply has no problem lying to your face. Supposedly 9 months ago a level of their aged parking garage collapsed upon the cars of five guests of this terrible hotel. From that incident they now have no more than 20 parking spots within walking... More

First impression as we drove up was scary, but we had searched for other hotel options and due to weather we were limited. There was a bad food smell that immediately hit me when I walked into the lobby..same with the room. Damp and smelly. The hotel isn't clean to what I would think (hope?) are Clarion standards...more like a... More

I needed to attend a seminar there. I read about parking problems so I called in advance and was told there was offsite parking a block and a half away. I was assured there were signs directing visitors to the parking. That was a lie. It is also substantially farther away. No signs or directory told me what room to... More
