Howard Johnson North Bergen
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in North Bergen
Reviewed January 27, 2014

We had a few rooms blocked for a Birthday Party that we was attending and had a few people flying in from other States. My family booked 4 rooms at this property for 3 nights and overall ok. The manager was able to assist me in checking in at 2am on January 18th instead of waiting until 3pm checkin time, she was able to give me a discounted rate for Friday so that I can be able to checkin. The rooms on the second floor was all remodeled and it has like a wall partition that separates the two queen size beds. NICE! Our rooms also had the pull out Queen Sofa Bed which was great for our family. Breakfast is your average toast, pastries, cold cereal and coffee/juice. The housekeeping department which was these two elderly couple was great, they was always there promptly to clean our rooms we just let them know that we didnt need our rooms clean but they great at making sure we get our clean towels etc. The hotel looks iffy from the road but overall its nice, clean, and reasonable within distance to everything we came to New Jersey for. FYI, to get up to the hotel their is a steep driveway so beware when its snowing. If you need a room that is wheelchair or ADA you will need to request a room on the ground floor as their is no elevator to the second floor at this property. Like some of the other reviews on here this hotel is located on a busy road but hey its New Jersey/New York everything will be busy. Thanks to the staff for making our trip a little more comfortable.

Room Tip: We reserved 171, 172, 173 and 156. Overall I like room 171 better cause it was much brighter, and so...

I thought we were in a tiny hotel, but the room was spacious and there is a lot more to the hotel than the picture shows. The breakfast was basic, but that is all we were looking for. They kept it well stocked. The management helpful and friendly. We were supposed to travel after Christmas but we, the parents, wound up sick, they could not cancel the reservation, but they did transfer the dates to MLK weekend.

The hotel was located on the side of a busy highway and was hard to get out. The room had many stains on the floor, sheets, towels, and the tables had a lot leftovers that seemed like it has never been cleaned. The room was cold and took forever to heat up. We didn't even want to shower in the tub because of the smell the water had. To get to your room, you had to drive a VERY steep hill up and it was very dangerous. Not a good place to stay even for this price.

Not bad overall. Of course it is not a five-star hotel. Location is acceptable to transit to NYC with some planning. I read a lot of complaints about the hotel shuttle service, for half the price NJ transit will get you in 15 min on time square (Port Authority Bus Terminal) but of course it depends on the traffic. You can park at North Bergen park and ride, which is a 2 min drive or 5-10 min walk, and the 320 will bring you very quickly on time square. Contrary to the hotel shuttle you can decide when you want to go and leave. We found that service very convenient. Cleaning could be better. Breakfast could include more varieties and coffee is disgusting. We did not have to deal a lot with the staff, but service seemed to be acceptable.

Room Tip: We had a room up the hill, which might be inconvenient for some people walking with lots of luggage...
