“Close to NY - great alternative to staying downtown.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Stayed there for 2 nights with my wife and 3 kids. Got the large suite which was not huge, but sufficient for all of us. Room had a small fridge and micro.
Room was clean and comfort portable.
They only have an outdoor pool that was closed because it was cold out.
Staff was very helpful and accommodating.
Free breakfast was excellent.
We went there to visit NY and we took the front desk person's advice and took the local public Shuttle bus into the city. Cost $3.00 each way. We needed to walk about 5 mins from hotel and it takes 10 mins to get to Port Authority. It was a little longer walk when the bus get's back on the return, but still close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was the biggest room available and was great for 5 of us. I would not want anythhing smalle...

We stayed that during the Patriot's Day weekend. Before the trip, I took the suggestion from a colleague to stay in the Jersey side and go into Manhattan for this family trip. I looked up reviews at tripadvisor, and chose this location. All the reviews are so correct:
The staff is wonderful. They are so friendly that if you are not used to it (like all other hotels), you will be scared. They came and say hi during breakfast. And not just one, but two. They walked around the tables and chatted with guests. Mathiew at the front desk was so nice and helpful when we arrived on the first night. Fabulous!

And the shuttle at the front step is so convenient. You got into Times Sq in about 20 minutes! I know it is not provided by the hotel, but rather a local service. I assumed that the shuttle should stop by other local hotels too. But the fact that this hotel bing the only stop both ways the day we used the service told me how this hotel attracts all guests from its competitors in the neighborhood. Warning: the shuttles runs hourly, and on return from Times Sq, go to the stop at least 20 minutes before the departure time. This is not because they would mess with the schedule, but because there are many people using this service so the seats are filled fast.

No, the rooms are not the most glorious, not the most updated, not the most attractive. But the room is most generous (two queen beds and a sofa bed if necessary) as far as I can tell. So, if you are a saver, and are happy with friendly people, this is the best alternative for a family trip to NYC. Save the lodging cost to do something interesting across the river.

Room Tip: Try the other side of the road, and go as high as you can. Unfortunately the traffic is there almost...

Overall the actual room accommodations and the hotel breakfast was pretty good. However, I encounter a front desk person who clearly did not pay attention. The young lady told me that my credit card had expired without looking at the credit card itself to read the expiration date and she also attend to another customer while she was still handling my transaction and service.

We just got back from 3 days at the North Bergen Holiday Inn Express. We stayed here because of price, size of the rooms, free parking and ease of getting into the city. We had read some mixed reviews about the hotel, but were pleasantly surprised. Our room had two queen beds and a pull out sofa. The beds where comfy, although the sofa was a pit springy - so slept on it as a couch. The breakfast in the morning had a nice variety of food -- cereal, precooked eggs, sausage, bagon, fruit, yogurt, danish, bagels, donuts, and an automatic pancake maker. There was always someone from the hotel at the breakfast to help you with any questions (or help clean up the milk your toddler spilled. Thanks!) There is a shuttle available that comes to the hotel - the owner/driver is Christian. What a helpful guy. The first day we took the shuttle it was delayed a few minutes as he was helping a guest jump start their car. The shuttle leaves from the hotel and drops you off near time square. The round trip fair is 6 dollars a person. Our last day we took Christian's shuttle to NYC, but since it returns at night we needed to find another way home for during the day. We took the Paterson, NJ shuttle from the Port Authority Station. It was fine and 3/pp, but not nearly as clean or friendly as the other. It drops you off about 3 blocks above where the hotel is. Overall we had a very nice stay and I would stay here again.

This was a much cheaper option than staying in NYC for a whole week and was great value for money. Breakfast included in the price was a fabulous idea and the choice was varied. The room itself was ideal; clean, nicely furnished, with a comfortable bed, decent bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. Staff were friendly and the hotel was generally clean and tidy throughout. The shuttle buses were great for travelling into NYC but were hit and miss for the way home. Public transport from the Port Authority bus terminal in New York was abysmal which is a shame because otherwise this would have been a perfect choice all round. Frustratingly we had to wait ages to find/catch a bus and then walk a fair few blocks of unfamiliar territory to get back to the hotel. Traffic through the Lincoln Tunnel at rush hour was also a real negative. If I had my own transport I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed there for one night before a cruise out of Manhattan. A short 10-15 minute trip to the port made it very convenient. We had requested a room on the top floor and they gladly accomidated us. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again.
