“Great staff, good location”
Reviewed December 17, 2006

We stayed at the Fairfield East Ruth from Dec. 10 -13. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Front desk people, wait staff, even the maintenance workers were so very helpful and courteous. We had a king bed room with sleeper sofa. Clean room was of adequate size. We weren't in it that long, since we were there for New York City.
Easy access to Lincoln Tunnel. About a mile to Giants Stadium. We drove into the city although there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. Took 25 minutes to get to TImes Square on Sunday and Monday, an hour on Tuesday for some reason, although we left at the same time each day (@ 9 a.m.). 20 -25 minute return each night. ICON parking web site can help reserve parking spots at a pretty good rate, but you must be on time.
Nice variety of breakfast selections. Pleasant eating area.
Half the price of NYC hotels and not a bad commute. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to the area.

This hotel is right on the NJ Transit bus line - the stop is in front of the hotel and is the reason we stayed there. The place is clean, the staff is friendly. It is not fancy but a good place to stay for convenience to the city. The breakfast is your standard continental breakfast and there is plenty of food.

  • Liked — The proximity to the city and the friendly front desk staff. They were extremely helpful.
  • Disliked — No restaurant in the hotel or within safe walking distance
  • Tips/Secrets — Definitely stay here if you want to be close to NYC but not pay an arm and a leg.

this hotel is in an excellent location if you are touring New York / New Jersey by car. Free car parking with an excellent bus service into Manhatten, reasonable costs and most of all hassle free, have you seen the traffic getting into NYC!!

The hotel staff were very friendly, the breakfast was very comprehensive which is included in the price. Free hi speed wireless internet, so using skype could phone home from the laptop for 3p per minute in the hotel room! Using the webcam was able to chat to our daughter who was at home in the UK.

Recommended to all.

This is a very clean, pleasant, well staffed hotel in a bad location.

The hotel is located between a very busy road and an industrial estate which means that there are a lot of trucks entering and leaving next to the hotel at all hours of the day and night. Also we experienced a lot of aircraft noise, sometimes into the early hours of the morning from the nearby airport.

The only good point about its location is that the bus (163) into New York stops right outside the property and drops you next to Times Square for $3.10. The manager (Lisa) provides you with a bus timetable and all the info you need for the trip.

Also bear in mind that staying in this part of New Jersey means that you will pay a fortune in tolls whenever you venture out in a car.

  • Liked — Cleaness of room.
  • Disliked — Noisy Location.
