“Trip to NYC? Meadowlands? Can't beat it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were looking to spend a weekend in NYC without having to break to bank, and by doing so, we started out by staying in New Jersey. For a total of $270 for 2 nights, we made the decision to stay at the H.I Express and what a great move it was. The rooms were clean, the service was wonderful, front desk staff was very helpful, parking was free, free wi-fi, and the free breakfast couldn't be beat. Bacon or sausage - alternated each day, eggs, french toast, waffles, pastries, fruit, cereal, etc... What a deal it was. The cost of a hotel room in NY, in addition to the parking you have to pay, is at least $300 a night, and add on the breakfast - Well, you can see that it is quite a savings.
Taking the bus trip into Manhattan was very easy and convenient. Walk down the street to the bus stop, pay $4.25 per person, and in about 15-20 minutes, you are at the N.Y Port Authority ready to start your NY adventure. The return bus stop is on the opposite side of the street from where you boarded the bus into NYC.

Room Tip: If traveling to NYC by bus, you pay the bus driver $4.25 in cash -- You do not need exact change. Ho...

I read the reviews before I stayed here and did NOT experience what all of the good was about. For the low, low price of 233.00 a night I got a room that: had a toilet that wouldn't flush, had someone vacuuming the hallway between 9:30 and 10:00 PM, had a maintenance man whistling the Andy Griffith show at 10:30 PM in the hallway, had maids that took my keys, had a washer that wont wash, had a dryer that won't dry, have the smallest parking spaces I've ever seen. NOT AGAIN! NOT HERE! My last night there made 119 nights in HIE's for the year for me. This one is in the top three of worst. But you know what, I suppose if you don't stay in these motels like I do, these things would never bother you.

Room Tip: If it's a HIE you're looking for....keep looking. If not, there are some hourly motels righ...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one week to visit New York City. Because most of the NYC hotels are very expensive for medium quality, this hotel seemed to be the best compromise. At a walking distance from the bus stop, this hotel was the perfect stay for a visit to the City. In the evenings it was much more quiet than the big city, which was very nice after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel rooms were very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices were large but not that much variation. Although a great hotel to stay in!

We stumbled upon this hotel on Trip Advisor and we were glad that we did. We were there to go into NY City for a few days and it's the perfect place to stay and take public transportation into the city without the hassle of driving and parking there! The rooms are clean and the amenities are great, wi-fi as well as a full breakfast, there is nothing continental about it...even had hard boiled eggs and cinnamon buns! Kudo's to the Management at this facility, would highly recommend and actually plan on staying again at some point in the future.

We stayed at this property last night. What a wonderful experience! We arrived at 11am and knew check-in wasn't until 3pm, but the staff said they would call and try to get a rush on our room. We decided to good get some lunch and the staff provide us with directions to some of the local restaurants that offer a discount to hotel guests. We also asked about transportation to the Meadowlands and the front desk agent called and setup a taxi for us. After we got back from lunch, around 12:30pm, our room was ready. How wonderful! After arriving back at the hotel late in the evening, we were looking for somewhere to order pizza from and the front desk agents provided us with two locations to call and also informed us that it was an hour wait. We called and placed an order anyway. After an hour we went down to the desk to wait for our order. The agents knew we had been waiting for our food, so they called the pizza place to check up on our order. The staff was very nice and helpful during our stay. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone attending an event at the Meadowlands.

we thought this hotel was a good value for the price we paid considering it's so close to nyc. We would definitely stay again- it was clean, comfortable, quiet and with a pretty good breakfast. a little difficult to find with the directions given to us. the desk lady at night was very helpful with our questions about the area
