Candlewood Suites Secaucus
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Secaucus
Reviewed March 22, 2010

Our room was absolutely spotless! We opted to stay at this hotel whilst visiting New York to get away from the busy city and restaurant food for 4 days - the hotel is self-catering. Great stay if you intend to do some shopping, as there are shopping outlets which are approximately a 15 minute brisk walk/less than 5 minute drive. We had some problems with hot water on the first day and this issue was resolved within 12 hours. If using public transport, the hotel is quite secluded from local amenities and its morning shuttle only operates 6-9am between the hotel and Seacaucus station. The laundry facility and bbq area are a plus. The manager is so friendly and staff very promt in addressing any requirements we had. We will definately stay here again.

We are currently 1 week into a month+ long stay at the hotel and our experience has been wonderful so far. The gym and free laundry were a big plus, especially knowing we would have a long stay, compared to other facilities we looked at. We were also happy to be able to bring our pet. The front desk staff, especially Jarrett, have been knowledgable about the area and the property and always eager to help and make our stay as pleasant as possible. We were advised that the furniture (except the desk) is moveable- which really went a long way to allowing us to make the room work better for long-term needs. We are also very happy with the cleanliness of our room and of the facility as a whole. Overall, we would definately recommend Candlewood, especially for a long-term stay.

Unlike the Apr review, we stayed in March and the hotel didn't have complimentary shuttles to the bus station. That was the only drawback since we had to drive to the bus station or pay the $7 cab fare. But once at the station, it is only a 10min trip into the city.
The rooms are new, clean and with many amenities. The hotel is easy to find. Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is very new and central to our needs (Newark Airport/Linden, train access to Manhattan, fwy access to George Washington Bridge/Bronx, West Orange). However, the immediate vicinity consists of highways, train tracks, and a salvage yard. Anyways, it'll be even better once the carpark is completed at Secaucus Junction although the $7 taxi ride was always ready and waiting.

We had two multi-day stays within a one week period. There was plenty of room in the suite for our travel crib and luggage. I'd recommend requesting a room on the back side of the property (odd-numbered rooms) since the fwy hum didn't bother us at all whereas the Secaucus Road noise was quite noticeable. The first room we had was perfect really and the second room had some detectable odor. The hotel didn't seem that busy so we could've probably asked for a different room had the noise and smell bothered us enough. The front desk staff was generally very helpful, friendly, relaxed, and efficient. It's such a small place that I'd recommend asking for assistance in person at the desk where their informational binder is maintained. The honor "cupboard" (a convenience store -like room) is well-stocked and was a very nice touch for our stay even though we opted to drive to the local supermarket for the most part. The free laundry room was truly a godsend. I'm not cheap... it's just incredibly annoying trying to pull together change or small bills!

My only sincere wish is that they'd put more sets of cutlery and dishware in the suites so that we would not have to wash the dishes after every single meal.

The hotel's comp shuttle to the express train to Manhatten made site seeing almost too easy. A round trip ticket cost only 5 bucks. Hotel had free DVD's and big flat screens for after we got back from the city. Free popcorn and free dvd's! The friendly staff had expert knowledge of New York and public transportaion, so we didnt even have to drive!! huge plus. Having never been to New York before the staff was a blessing. They found all the coolest stuff for the family to do at a great value and the simplest possible way. The rooms were very clean. I would recommend this hotel to everyone that wants a great holiday in NYC for a great value.

This was a great hotel brand new, with easy access to NYC via NJ Transit Train. The room was very spacious and had a great full kitchen. The staff was nice and friendly from the moment we checked in. The beds were very comfortable. I stay at lots of hotel and this is definitely one of the best hotels I stayed...would stay again. Would recommend this to anyone, and honestly you could stay here for a fraction of the cost of staying in NYC and be just as convenient. Over all I give it an A+
