“Fine...could be a lot better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

The hotel is in need of major updating. Walls in lobby knicked. General wear and tear.

Checked in with a gentleman at night...he was accommodating and helpful.

The staff at the desk in the AM was non-existent. She was often observed texting on her cell and did not seem present...literally. I went up to the desk several times and waited minutes at a time. I finally gave up and sat in the lounge until she appeared.

Rooms: (rm 708) Time to spruce them up. The pull-out mattress was so terrible that I ended up putting layers of blankets on it to keep from feeling the springs. The beds felt like someone had been jumping on them.

Bathrooms: the tub had a squishy floor. YES, a squishy floor. Not safe for our kids. Seemed somewhat clean but by the end of the night our kids feet were disgusting.

View: We had a few of NYC. Very nice.

2nd floor smelled like smoke

Breakfast: Warm and satisfying. No real complaints except I wish they had some sort of way to tell guests that there is more seating in the bar/restaurant. There is more food that way as well.

Bus to NYC: extremely convenient!!! Fast ride. I will probably never stay in NYC again now that I know how easily accessible it is from this general area.

With how many options there are in this area I am surprised that this hotel has not updated their look.

Hi LandandSea,
Yes, the hotel could certainly use a renovation and we hope to see that happen soon. Until then, we keep it clean and our staff provides friendly service. Thank you so much for your review.

Travelled from Scotland and stayed at La Quinta for a week. Fantastic base for travelling to and from Manhattan, bus 320 leaves directly opposite hotel on a regular basis. We arrived at 1am in the morning (due to a flight delay) and were greeted by very helpful staff (and we experienced the same pleasant helpfulness throughout our entire stay). We were allocated suite 910....which had an awesome view of the skyline. Suite was more than big enough for us and our teenage daughter, with two double beds and a small lounge area complete with fridge, microwave and coffee machine. Bathroom was a nice size. We were able to get clean bedding and towels everyday if we wished and the room (albeit some parts could so with some refurbishment) was well kept, well cleaned and stocked each day. One day we had a problem with our toilet which overflowed, but this was immediately remedied within 10 minutes by the maintenance staff! We were able to launder our clothes (wash and dry them) and the indoor swimming pool was clean and pool water very warm. The changing rooms were however a little chilly.....The gym is well equipped and spotless. There was a fantastic hot buffet breakfast every day with so much choice and something for everyone. The hotel also has a transport service that will take you anywhere for free within a certain radius...we went to the "Outback" restaurant nearby which was very reasonably priced and the steak was lovely. There is also a "Subway" sandwich bar a small walk away.
We had a fantastic stay at La Quinta and it was excellent value for money....staff are great which makes such a difference! Thank u for a wonderful stay and hope to be back again soon.

We stayed in a suite at the end of October and we enjoyed our experience at this hotel. We had a large and comfortable room (though, there was a slight smell of humidity). It is really easy to get to NYC with a NJ Transit shuttle that takes us right in front of the hotel and drops us in Times Square for a very affordable price (around $8 for a round trip). Complimentary breakfast is good and offers various choices. The hotel staff is nice and cheerful. The wifi connection was slow and was working on and off.

My daughter and I stayed with you about 2 weeks ago. We had excellent breakfasts, wonderful service, and received lots of good advice about how to get around. Our view was terrific, but of course, not everyone will get the view of NY unless you ask for that side of the building. We looked out on the Empire St. Bldg. Beautiful. The bus service is the way to go! Jorge, a desk clerk, was so helpful to us. Please be safe there during this storm, and if we ever come again, we'll look to stay there. It was quiet, and after NY we needed that. We don't need extra fancy, but we do like nice folks and clean rooms. We got that. Again, thank you!!

Room Tip: If you want to see NY skyline, ask for it. Be sure to plan travel time into the city..it varies depe...

We chose this hotel after reading review after review for most of the surrounding hotels. This hotel seemed to have everything we needed and we weren't disappointed. We stayed from 10/11-10/14 for a convention in NYC. The bus to the city runs all day and well into the early morning hours. Its cheap ($4 one way) , clean, and so convenient. The hotel is really nice. The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable. The price is great for how close you are to the city. The deluxe continental breakfast was hot and tasty daily and we found if we went down around 8:30 it was just before the rush so there were less people. The pool is really warm.and after a long day on my feet in the city it was just the thing to losen up my muscles. The staff at this hotel is outstanding. They were super helpful when we had questions especially the 2nd shift man on the 13th. He really helped make me feel like a valued customer. (I wish I could remember his name :( ) I will be staying here from now on whenever I have plans for NYC. I'm already planning a return visit in March. Keep up the good work guys!
