This hotel did not take away the stress of traveling to Manhattan as we wanted it to. First, the hotel isn't in the best area. NOT to say I felt unsafe, but I am not so sure about the area, could definitely be cleaned up. We arrived around 9pm. The woman at the front desk was nice and helpful. At this point we found out the shuttle ONLY leaves the hotel at 3 different times in the morning (starting at 6 I believe) and leaves Manhattan to come back to the hotel 3 different times (starting at 8pm) By reading the reviews before, I was under the impression that I could get a shuttle back midday. Asked the driver and there was no negotiating. There were no instructions as to what to do if you can't get the shuttle. I read in the reviews about a bus going by, but had no information on where that dropped off, or where to get on. That would have been helpful. Also would have been helpful to know that taxis do not have to take you to New Jersey, and if they do, they will most likely charge you a bundle. This information should have been more readily available. The room was average, seemed clean. Definitely a smaller room, but for a one night stay it was manageable. The beds were not comfortable. We did take the shuttle to the city in the morning and ended up getting a taxi back, which got lost.
