“Expensive LaQuinta, but reasonable for NYC in December”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you have transport, this is not too far from the city. It's a little hard to find, but then again you won't be paying for overnight parking, either.
The front desk was friendly and helpful. Great job! The rooms are good sized-but decorated for a 3 star hotel. The buffet area is a sizeable area-plenty of space.
We had a great experience here and would go back again.

Just back from a 6 night stay (nov/dec 2012) and the hotel is great. Its basic but its clean & tidy, has free wifi and a PC to use in reception, gives you breakfast and is a great location for travelling into manhatten. Free bus service by hotel for 3 mile journeys. NJ transit stop right at the hotel and 20 mins or thereabouts into manhatten. Hotel and rooms are basic but they are kept clean and really good value, the free breakfast is great. Walmart near by and some great resaurants. There is a gym and pool but i didnt use them.

Great loction for access to NYC. Bus stop right in front of the Hotel.
We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend to go to the football game.
Free Shuttle service to the Meadowlands stadium wich is about a mile away.
Great poeple who work there. We stayed at the sixth floor with view of Manhatten.
Breakfast was outstanding and plenty to choose from.
Room were realy spacious. Free parking. Why spend big bucks in NYC when you get better quality
only 25 min. away.
A big thanks also to Baida who help us with a small problem we had.
We will be back to NY and will stay again here.

My daughter, mother and I stayed at La Quinta Inn & Suites Secaucus Meadowlands from Nov. 20 - 26, 2012. Most of the reviews I read online before we left were positive, but those few negative reviews still can make you a little doubtful.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The location was perfect. Great shopping and restaurants a walk away. The bus stop (320) for New York was literally across the street and we never had to wait. It stops at La Quinta Inn & Suites first so you always get a seat. it's a 20 minute ride to the Port Authority in Time's Square and costs $8 return. We did it every day!

The hotel offers a free shuttle within a 3 mile radius so we took advantage of that a few times too. The drivers are great and are there whenever you need them. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, couldn't ask for better! The complimentary breakfast was great too, hot and cold items and lots of it! We enjoyed the heated pool after being on our feet all day in the city. The rooms were fairly big and clean. They had everything we needed and if we needed something extra all we had to do was ask. We stayed on the 6th floor with a view of the NY skyline, just had to ask for it!

From La Quinta, besides NYC, we went to Carlos' Bakery in Hoboken which was a 15 minute taxi ride away. We also went to Jersey Gardens Outlet Mall which was about a 25 minute ride. You need a couple of days to see everything there. Johnny Rocketts diner was great there!

I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Just ask the person at the desk for a NYC view and you will get it!! Take advantage of the complime...

Excellent hotel for the price 20-30 minutes from Manhattan. Spacious suites, clean and nice area. Nice cover swimming pool for the kids to relax after you visit the big apple. Five star breakfast and very nice and friendly staff. What else do you need to feel comfortable and happy in a hotel?. We only reserved 3 nights at this hotel and wanted to stay more days after the experience but the hotel was sold out.:-(

Room Tip: If you get a room on the highest floors you will have a spectacular view of NYC

We were at this location over the Thanksgiving holiday for five nites. We were satisfied with almost everything there; from the very convenient bus to NYC across the street to the "way above average" breakfast that is provided free of charge. This breakfast has numerous hot items and from someone who does alot of traveling and staying in alot of hotels, this hotel goes several steps beyond what the usual 21/2-3 star hotel provide. The staff as well provide a pleasant energy and that is reflected in the breakfast room atmosphere. I didnt feel rushed and was roomy. The first nite we had a late check-in and upon entering our room found one of our tv remotes not working. I phoned the front desk and within five minutes the front desk man knocked on my door with a new remote! The only downside was on the second day our maid didnt clean our or change the towels/bedsheets, even after telling her we were leaving for the day. The following day we reported this to the front desk and hence to housekeeping. After that day we had no more problems with missed housekeeping. The place can get noisy on weekends but our suite was spaceous and isolated enough that we experienced quiet during our stay. It would have been nice to have a king suite with a view but sadly I was told only the double rooms have views of Nyc on the upper floors. An added plus is the free garage parking , free wifi (which can be slow) and comfy beds. Again probably the best non-luxury choice in not only the Meadowlands area but frankly in any area I've run into. And dont know if that says anything about this property or if says how disappointing other properties can be.
