“Ruined the end of a vacation”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Hello, I wanted to share my experiences with everyone regarding this property. I made a reservation with the propoerties reservation number, and was advised I would be checking in at a certain rate, well I was advised at the front desk the reservatin had not been made and that I should only ever check in at the hotel. I was checked in, and not given the price of the room, I had to ask, and it was 2 times the amount that I was quoted on the phone. The Manager refused to deal with the issue and it was only resolved a month later. Hairs on the towels and in the bed, and they were not mine. No food in the lobby, and not enough was ordered. NEVER again.

Room Tip: All rooms are noisy, you can hear everything your neighbours are doing.

We are from an upstate Radio Station " La Mega 90.9 F.M. " and go to N.Y.C. often during the summer months. this facility is always available when booking. the front desk girls are very friendly, the cleaning ladies remind me of being home because everytime we go, they will take a few minutes to speak to us in a very friendly manner. this last trip 7/7/2012, was fairly well i noticed a new t.v. in the room, the refrigerator and microwave had to be replaced from another room by myself since it was the weekend i guess, a leak in the bathroom in room 203, but for a few days we did with what we had

Room Tip: we always ask for the upper balcony front rooms

Clean rooms in the shadow of the GWB. Great value. Room had no tv remote and no coffee maker, but did have hairdryer, fridge and microwave. Coffee available in the office. Had nice postcard with a dozen local restaurants and a grocer on one side and a Manhattan subway map on the other (nice!). It was a quiet night and some "loading dock noise" could be heard (heavy metal bangs). While I grew up across a river from a train yard and currently have a train that passes within 1/4mile of my home, the noise did not bother me, but it might some who it is not familiar to.

Ok this is an older motel, which could use up dating. The staff are friendly, and work hard. The location is great if your looking at bicycling over the George Washington bridge. The hotel is just across the street to the walk path over the bridge. We wanted to bike NYC this time. So we took this hotel, which s extremely budget friendly.

PROS:
1) budget friendly.
2) if your using bridge - perfect location
3) clean rooms
4) stores around the corner - east access
5) access to NYC buses - which we never used.

CONS:
1) TV in room was old and needs to be replaced.
2) bathroom are closet size. If your a large person good luck using the toilet which is up against the sink.
3) always had to go down to get towels. Cleaning staff wash on site. Therefore it's a constant cleaning process for them, not their fault.
4) no face cloths.
5) location looks shady, but never any issues, our vehicle was left a lone, and we walked around at night - no problems.

In conclusion, I would consider returning again. When I travel all of my time is spent outside. This hotel was ok to sleep at night, get up, shower and then split. If you spend time in your hotel go some where else.

So I searched several sites, sorted by user ratings and took a chance. Last time I do that. The first room had the windows open and a non-functional air conditioner. Room number 2 did cool down, but the TV didn't work and the toilet wouldn't stop running. Room number 3 had filthy rugs and a smokey, stale smell, but too tired to care at this point. The front desk young lady was very friendly with no attitude, but seemingly aware that a lot of the rooms shouldn't be used. Spend the extra bucks and go somewhere else. You get what you pay for. Lesson learned...again!

The Econo Lodge in Fort Lee, NJ is comfortable and convenient spot to stay in. The location is perfect. It's less than 5 minutes away from the George Washington Bridge, providing easy access to New York City from New Jersey. Great option, if on budge; avoid extremely high priced hotels in NYC. Room are clean, adquate, and comfortable. Rooms come with TV w/ cable; microwave, refrigerator, cabinet drawers, continental breakfast, everything you need to enjoy your stay. Service is good, the staff does their best to accommadate requests. For $80 bucks a night in the Tri-State area, can't beat it. Strongly recommend this spot (Hotel).
