“Nice clean well located hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Pleasant little private hotel in the center of Tenafly. Nothing special here. Good bar/restaurant in hotel. Walking distance to the cute shops and restaurants in Tenafly. Room was clean and so was the bathroom. Service was prompt.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had the opportunity to visit the Clinton Inn Hotel once again this year. Last year's visit was less than ideal due to the front desk staff. This year's visit, was a completely different experience!

Katherine who was working the front desk Friday night when we checked in, was a dream. She was helpful, pleasant, attentive and everything you could've asked for. She was also working the front desk in the morning, and our check out was a breeze. Thank you!!

Our room this year was leagues better than the one last year. Last year the room was hot and air-conditioning attempts proved futile. This year, room 214 was amazing. The a/c was outstanding, the room was spotless and the amenities were as expected.

We will definitely return, without hesitation!

Room Tip: Room 214 was very nice

The Clinton Inn is a hotel with a long history in the area. The framed newspaper article in the lobby is worth taking the time to read.
Our check-in was fast and efficient. The staff at the front desk, the bar and dining room were all excellent (friendly, patient and helpful).
They have an extensive wine list and the food was delicious. One of our favorites was a margarita pizza with a glass of chianti.
The bus stop is right in front of the hotel so it is convenient to go into the city or any other place. We walked around the quaint town of Tenafly.
If you need a taxi, we would highly recommend The Happy Taxi, operated by Eddie. He is reasonably priced, great service and all around good guy. I'll try and post a separate review.
Our room was clean and contained all the basics. Included daily maid service with clean towels, etc. If you need a hair dryer,however, look in the closet.

Rooms are generous (two double beds), great for price, good restaurant. Front desk service varies -- some of the staff were very very friendly, a few didn't really smile much. The restaurant service though was fantastic, and the wait staff were very helpful and always smiling at customers. A good place to stay if you're in the area, and right in the middle of Tenafly so also convenient if you want to go around the area (some great places to eat there as well).

Our office in the US is located in NJ and I usually stay at Clinton Inn in Tenafly.
Tenafly is a small town in NJ but it is convenient for me to stay at Clinton Inn because there are several restaurants and a convenience store as well as a supermarket near the hotel.
I usually don't buy anything, but water at the CVS.

Around our office, there are several hotels such as Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn and Hilton Fort Lee.
I stayed those hotels as well until now.
If you have a rent-a-car, it might be the same, but if not, Clinton Inn is the best because it is in a small town and everything is in the walking distance.

I have stayed at Clinton Inn several times a year for more than a decade.
Room itself has been the same and I would say it is just an American standard.
No complaint about the room.

Breakfast is buffet style but meals served on the table are rather limited like scrambled eggs, bacons & sausages, mashed potatoes and some fruits.

I stayed there 4 days. I eat the same menu every morning, because there is not many choices.
From time to time in the past, they changed buffet menu. Sometime in the past, there were Korean noodles and rice and some Asian foods.
There are many Korean living around Fort Lee.
I don't know if it is the case, but there are any Korean are staying at Clinton Inn.
So I sometimes observed so many Koreans were in the breakfast buffet and full of Korean language, which is a little noisy...

People working at the reception have been the same for the decade.
So I know most of them for more than 10 years, but they don't show me any familiarity when I check in and out.
This is the complaint I only have until now.
Otherwise, its service level is quie acceptable.

Room Tip: Nothing particular...

Stayed in the hotel for business for an extended period.

Location is great. Close to local, large businesses, with a shuttle service provided. Tenafly is small but has a few good places to eat within easy walking distance of the hotel and a decent supermarket. There is a bus service stopping right outside the hotel that runs to the central PABT bus station in Manhattan. Takes a while to get there (#20 or express #166 - 40 mins; normal #166 - 60 mins) but at $6 one way it beats a $40 taxi fare !!

Hotel facilities were unexpectedly good for its star rating. The gym is small but has a good range of equipment. Breakfast buffet was very good. Wi-fi service was free and performed better, even in the public areas of the hotel, than I've had for £15 per day in bigger, more highly rated hotels.

The hotel bar was an oasis after a stressful day in the office. Staff were very friendly and extremely competent - Hi Joey, hi Greg. The menu for bar meals was good enough that I never felt the need to look at the main restaurant menu, though I understand that that was even better. Baseball on the big screen was a bonus, even if the Mets did feature too often.

-
There is no in-room safe and the safety deposit boxes behind reception are only big enough for cash, passport, cards and similar. Given that a lot of the guests here are business visitors, with laptops, tablets and other expensive equipment, this was a major fail and the reason why I have not given the hotel a five blob rating.

Also recommended. The Blue Moon Tex/Mex restaurant in Englewood (short bus or taxi ride) had a great atmosphere and an extensive menu. I only found it on my last evening but wish I'd known about it earlier in my stay.
