“Affordable @ a nice locality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

The most affordable hotel in this kind of locality for sure. Theater, Restaurants, Wallmart .. all are nearby.

facilities are good. weekly shuttle services to wallmart/indian market.
Room service not bad.
No Breakfast is a drawback though
Free wifi provided is terribly slow, even youtube buffers most of the time.
Bus to NY is available nearby which is a really good thing.

I have been staying at Extended Stay - SEC for a few months now..and this is my 3rd extended-stay here at Secaucus Homstead. For longer duration business trips, this has become home instead. I guess it says a lot about this place itself!
During my stay I have seen many positive changes and I thought I should write this and give credit where it's due. Some of the noticeable changes here:

1) High speed internet: This was one of the severe pain-points for IT professionals like me for office work, and also serves Infotainment needs of non-IT guests.
2) Scheduled weekly trips to Little India and Wal-Mart: This helps the guest a great deal who have come here from foreign countries for business assignments and don’t have car in possession for their grocery needs.
3) Observed individual’s birthday celebration from the staff: This gives out the message “Management cares!” for staff. This in turn translates into staff going an extra mile for guests to exceed the expectations.
4) New equipment in Gym
6) Clean and Hygienic rooms: This certainly makes the stay comfortable.

Excellent hotel for visiting New York City. Bus to Manhattan Port Authority Bus Terminal picks up right outside the Hotel every 15 minutes or so.
Manager of this hotel was very accomodating. He and the Staff did everything possible to make our stay very pleasant.
The rooms were being renivated when we stayed there and we had a newly renivated suite with a separated bedroom. This suite allowed the wife to rise early and drink her coffee while I continued to sleep. In the next few weeks, all of the rooms should be renivated. The full kitchen, with refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishes, was convenient for quick breakfasts. We spent most of the days touring New York City. The staff did freshen the rooms daily.
Overall, we enjoyed the hotel. We had stayed at this same hotel last October and found its convenience worth while so we booked it again for our 3 night stay on May.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side do not have as much street noise, but both times we stayed here we had rooms...

Prentice,

It was very kind of you to take the time to publish such a positive review of your stay at the Homestead Secaucus - Meadowlands. It's always satisfying to read positive feedback from our valued guests, like you. Although some companies run extravagant advertising campaigns for their hotels, we believe that the best kind of marketing is the public praise we get from our millions of happy customers. That's why the biggest investment we make is in our customers. As you know, our unique suites are designed with you in mind. Offering amenities like a full refrigerator, stovetop, in-room wi-fi access, personalized voicemail, and on-premise laundry in exceptionally priced rooms has led us to be the premier extended stay option in the industry. Knowing that you had such a positive impression of our renovations meant a great deal to us as well!

It would, of course, be our pleasure for you to repeat your experience with us in the future. Thank you once again, and feel free to reach out to us directly if we can assist you in any of your future travels.

My travel every day into NYC is a short bus ride that leaves me right at 8th avenue and 40th street, a short walk to the Empire State building, or Broadway shows, the Intrepid air and sea museum, wonderful restaurants, or a short cab ride to almost any attraction in New York city. Unfortunately I am here on business, even though staying at the Homestead in Secaucus during this time has made this business trip seem like a wonderful vacation - they even have a pool! The staff is considerate, courteous and attentive - a reflection of Mash, the manager's example. I feel comfortable and safe here, and having travelled for business for more than 20 years, I can attest to just how important those simple things can be. This is my hotel of choice when visiting New York City.

Location is perfect. There are plenty of restaurants nearby on walking distance. Wallmart is close. I stayed for two weeks on a business trip where I had to travel to WTC. The bus stop is just next to the hotel and it takes around 40 mins to WTC. Bus 320 to port authority and then subway. Restaurant staff is helpful. I wanted to take an urgent print-out and their kiosk PC was not working, the lady at receiption was helpful to share her desk PC for me to take a print.

Hotel runs free shuttle to wallmart and Little India once a week. That was helpful too.

I have stayed often during past 3 years at the Homestead Studio Suites Secaucus and the stay has always been good with a very helpful staff, but this time there was a pleasant surprise with the once a week trip to Walmart and the Indian Market and thanks goes to the manager Mash Sopariwala for this
