This hotel is in an older building, and like old buildings, it has its quirks as well as its charms. It's in the Journal Square area of Jersey City, which is a middle-class/working-class neighborhood with shops and services within walking distance of the hotel. There are lots of good Indian restaurants a block away, and a nice variety of restaurants are just one or two stops away on the Path train (at the Grove Street and Newport Stations). The train station is a short walk away, and I felt comfortable walking from it well into the evening. Late at night, you can take a cab from the station to the hotel - they're at the curb in front of the station.
I stayed 4 nights at this hotel - I was in town to visit my son, who lives nearby. The first night I was in a room directly above the outdoor smoking area, and the room smelled like smoke, so I asked to be moved to a better room. There weren't any other rooms available that night, but they moved me the next morning to a nicer room, and they handled the move in a courteous and professional manner. Both rooms were very clean, and the staff was consistently friendly, courteous and helpful. I felt very well taken care of.
I appreciated having a free shuttle to and from the airport, which saved me $50 cab fare each way.
I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a low-cost hotel option in Jersey City.
