“Decent place to stay for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2009

Just came home from the U2 concert and stayed at the Econolodge-1st time I stayed over for a Meadowlands/ Giants Stadium event. I agree with everything about this place that others have written- but if you are looking for a place for one night for a concert or event at the Meadowlands or Izod center-this is it. One great discovery on our way to the pre concert dinner is Redd's Restaurant and Bar while walking down the rd. They have a full restaurant and bar and pre concert outdoor bar service with Dj spinning the bands music(weather permitting) They are open after the shows for food and drinks till 2 am!! THEY ALSO HAVE A FREE SHUTTLE TO GIANTS STADIUM .What a find!!!!

It's true! There are good things that outweigh the bad: 1) price - < $70 for 2 doubles in Aug, free parking, fridge/micro, no $4/night NYC tourism tax, 2) expanded breakfast - muffin, bagel, danish, toast, cereal, waffle, and milk/juice/coffee, 3) NJ #161 Moonachie bus to NYC Port Authority Bus Terminal in 15-20 mins. Adult fare $3.40 and children are free. Save $$$ in toll and parking, and stress from driving.

We stayed for 3 nights and were surprised in a good way. The bed was very comfortable, everything clean, all major things in the room. Breakfast ok, staff nice. If you go sightseeing, this is an affordable place to sleep. Although there is a bus that takes you straight to Times square in half an hour, it runs only till midnight or even less. This time we are taking another hotel in downtown NY, but only because we want to see more night life. Anyway, I recommend this hotel :)

My husband and I had plans in the city and we stayed at Econo Lodge because we didn't want to pay NYC rates. It was very convenient to go to the city. Also, the hotel is under new management, the rooms are clean and the service was excellent.

My stay at Econo Lodge was great! When I checked in, the hotel staff was nice and friendly and the hotel room itself was clean and spacious. We had plans to go to New York City the next morning so we had the hotel's free breakfast and took a bus that stopped right across the street to Manhattan. In less than 15 minutes I was in Manhattan. The commute couldn't have been easier--you dont even need a car to get around. Coming back to the hotel was just as easy. This hotel was such a bargain. I am so glad I found it and would definitely recommend staying at this place to friends and family.

The bus in front of the hotel took us right to NY in just 15 minutes...really convenient. Hotel looks new on the outside. They still need to work on the rooms a bit. It's dated but clean and reasonably priced. Restaurant next door was not so great....I forgot the name.

Value for money - good, i got the room for $60 a night including breakfast. Break fast though was very basic nothing fancy, bread and muffins at best, no eggs etc but it helped. Their standard rate is $ 100 and would never pay that for this hotel!Also they provide free internet in their rooms which was a great plus

Cleanliness: The lobby, corridors etc seem more like a garage than a hotel so that was disappointing. The rooms are very average with not so clean carpets but the one thing i was thankful about was clean toilets and very clean towels.

Location : Travel to new york - very good connectivity to new york (bus every 30 minutes from the gas station opposite the hotel)
Eating places : nothing a walk away except a subway though there are plenty of places a couple of miles away (taco bell, KFC, Burger king etc)
Shopping : again most stores like best buy, walmart, target etc are all in the radius of 4-5 kms
