“Totally awesome Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This Hotel is a hidden gem! Everything is updated, clean, well appointed, and the staff is first class! Especially notable are the young gentleman and lady working the front desk. Very accommodating and courteous. They were delightful!

I love this hotel. My family and I stayed there for two nights and we loved the staff and loved the amentities. The parking was great both in front and in the back of the hotel. They also have a grill out front that you can use for free. The have non-smoking rooms for the whole family to enjoy. The have DVD's that you can rent and they have free washer and dryer. The best thing that I really enjoyed was the FF (free fast) internet service. That's what put the hotel over the top for me! The room was kinda same for a family of 5 but the kitchen area was awesome. I would stay there again! Oh yeah...The beds were comfortable too. Not to far from Walmart, Target and a bunch of other shops. A+++++

Stayed here for five nights and found it to be a very good place.
The train from Penn station to Secaucus Junction station takes 10 minutes and costs $4, this is very frequent and can be checked on njtransit.com. It is a 20 minute walk to the hotel, if you don't feel like walking you can get the hotel shuttle in either direction. If you need to get there outside of the shuttle operating times a cab will cost you $8, provided you go with Secaucus taxi service, on arrival I was charged $14 by a different cab company from the station.
The hotel itself was very clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. The suite was well equipped with cooking utensils etc, microwave fridge/freezer, even if the fridge was a bit noisy. There is a guest laundry free of charge and well equipped. If you want to go shopping in Secaucus the hotel shuttle will drop you off, there is an outlet centre close by and a walmart. Overall if you are looking for a budget alternative to cramped New York hotels this is the place.

I was transferred here after I was walked by the Candlewood Suites Jersey City. I arrived after 1AM and Homero at the front desk was so kind! He said he was sorry for what happened and he did everything he could to get me into my room as fast as possible. The room was very nice and clean. The next morning, Homero remembered me and asked how I was feeling. I definitely would stay here again and this is a place that knows how to treat a guest.

Stayed here for 5 weeks and it was very quiet. The staff was friendly and very helpful in helping us to get around to the sites like ground zero. It is located close to shopping and restaurants as well as the train to New York and the interstate. It has outdoor grills and eating area that is covered. VERY VERY CLEAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!! A must stay when in the area and it is close to New York and Hobokin, NJ where the Cake Boss has his bakery.

Room Tip: I was on the first floor but I think any room would be worth it.

Just got back from a short visit tomNYC. Stayed in Secaucus. Krishna at the front desk was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Shuttle to train station in 5 minutes saves you $16 per day and Secaucus is only 1 stop from Penn station, takes only 15 minutes. Room very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for room furthest from highway if you like to sleep with window open

My friend and I stayed at this hotel as our base for visiting Manhattan. The hotel was sparkling clean, the staff were friendly and the room was in great condition. We were quite surprised by the kitchenette in the room, everything was very clean and in good working order. Very quiet at night which is a huge plus after a long day of exploring New York.

This hotel is a good alternative for budget minded travellers looking to explore New York. Once you're at Secaucus Junction station, the train into Penn Station in Manhattan is only about 6 or 7 minutes and very cheap at 4$ each way. The only trouble is the hotel isn't within walking distance of the Secaucus station. The hotel does have a courtesy shuttle back and forth, but only Monday to Friday in the morning and then again from 4-9. Thankfully, the hotel is partnered with a taxi company that only charges $8 for at trip from the station to the hotel. As we were there over a weekend, we were a bit disappoitned at the lack of shuttle service on Saturdays and Sundays. The hotel is in an excellent location to market itself as a cheaper alternative to staying in Manhattan, and it would be great to see the shuttle in use on a more frequent basis. Granted, even with the taxis, it's still much more affordable than the standard $300 a night in Manhattan.

Overall, it was a great stay and I would stay there again. If you're looking for a relatively hassle free alternative to staying in New York, this hotel is for you!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was very quiet.
