Hilton Garden Inn Secaucus / Meadowlands
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Secaucus
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Had driven 2000 miles from Canada to meet up with friends in from England for their 50th anniversary. Did not want to drive into NY itself, worried a bit about other reviews concerning bus into town. No worries, desk gave us a 'crib'sheet on all the details necessary for trip in and back. Walk was about 4-5 minutes for bus. Very nice hotel and very friendly staff, great at half the rpice of Manhatten hotels for a 10 minute bus ride.

We enjoyed a lovely stay at this hotel. The place is clean and friendly. The hotel staff was extremely helpful with directions on how to get in and out of NYC. Note- Make sure to pay attention to the directions on how to get BACK to the hotel from NYC. The hotel team will give you specific instructions...follow them!

Room Tip: Love the Garden Sleep System bed (king beds only)

We had to come to NYC and decided to stay in NJ. We are Hilton Garden Inn members so we booked our stay here. It was easy to and from the city via the bus. The staff was wonderful. We had never been to NYC before so their help was great. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was wonderful and the staff was fantastic!

We stayed here while visited NY. Good location with our budget. There is bus stop not far away, about 5 mins walk. We stayed there 2 nights. The lady in the front desk was very nice and greeted us every time we met. The room was clean. It closes to shopping mall. But there is no complimentary breakfast. And it is not easy to find it the first time. We missed the exist on highway the first day. If you can walk (to the bus stop) and want to save expensive parking fee in Manhattan, this is a good choice.

Dear Smartbebe:

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review of our Hotel after your recent stay with us. I hope you will accept our apologies for any confusion as to the breakfast. We have researched other comparable hotels in the area and while there are a couple that have a complimentary continental breakfast we have found the rates for their rooms to be somewhat higher than ours. The cost for two guests to have breakfast with us plus the room rate in some cases is still less than other locations. We do have available for our guests a breakfast package called the Bed and Breakfast Deal. This package will offer you a rate for the room including breakfast and up to two children under 12 are complimentary as long as they are in the same room as the adults. With this package the rate will represent a discount on the normal breakfast cost. Our breakfast always has the hot food prepared to your order and is not prepared in advanace.

All of us do appreciate you staying with us and hope to see you when you are in our area in the future.

Hotel is a 5-10 min bus ride with NJ transit to the port authority in manhattan. Bus is 2-3 min walk from hotel. We didn't have to wait at all at the bus stops going there and coming back. Hotel is very clean and nice probably half the price compared to staying in manhattan for a 5 min bus ride.

So I booked this hotel b/c I planned to take my daughter to see a play in the city. I read many reviews before booking it and some people said..the bus stop was far away and some people said the bus stop was close and easy to get to. I actually called the hotel and asked myself and they told me it was really close and not dangerous.

After fighting traffic to get there...and a situation with the front desk woman...we were finally off to hit the Big Apple! Let me just tell you...if you are a single mom traveling with your 6 year old daughter, the bus stop is far away! You have to walk down the street...though an abandoned buildings parking lot...pass the home depot...and cross the street. I was like...we better be back before dark..who wants to walk across an abandoned parking lot at night?? That is where the area doesn't have good sidewalks so I can see why people were saying it was dangerous.

Let me say this, if you are traveling with all adults, a couple men, I say go for it and book this hotel for your trip to the city. While the traffic was crazy getting in the city...it was a short bus trip to get back that evening. So the hotel isn't far from the city. Maybe the hotel should offer a shuttle to the bus stop...or something? In my situation..single parent traveling with kid..I will not book this hotel again for safety reasons.

P.S. the lady running the breakfast in the morning was really nice!

Dear BlkBarbie99:

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review after your recent stay with us. I hope you will accept our apologies for the New Jersey Transit bus stop not meeting your needs. The bus stop is two tenths of a mile walk which is sometimes less than one block in New York CIty. We are working with the state to see if they will allow a bus stop that would be about 1/2 the distance of the current location but so far they have not been cooperative. All of us here at the Hilton Garden Inn can assure you that there has been no issues with the walk in the more than ten years that our guests have been using the busses.

We do appreciate you staying with us and do hope to see you again in the future.
