My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We were needing to get to NYC pretty quickly and wanted to stay at a place that had easy access to the train station and was priced at a value. I found a deal on hotels and priceline that listed the rooms at 79 per night so we decided to give the Meadowlands Plaza a try. Here were the Pros and Cons about this hotel:
Location: This hotel is about 5 minutes away from the Secaucus Juntion Train Station: It is about a 5-6 minute ride into Penn Station which takes you to 7th and 32nd street. The price per ticket was $4.00. Also, there is a subway, wendys, Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins within walking distance of the hotel.
- Complimentary Shuttle to train station as well as other places" The shuttle was very convenient and runs till 11pm. We had no problems with the shuttle being late to pick us up from the train station when we arrived back from NYC. We waited no longer than 8 minutes to be picked up.
- Free breakfast buffet: The breakfast buffet had hot scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, potatoes, cereal, toast, fruit, orange juice, croissants, and a little more. It was an okay breakfast overall, but nothing spectacular.
- Nice large and clean room! The rooms also had a nice flat screen television as well as complimentary Wi-Fi.
- Free Parking
Cons: We stayed on the 9th floor and was given a two queen room. There was not a microwave or fridge in the room, but this was not such a big deal to us.
- The Beds were really hard in my opinion
- The heating unit did not work very well in our room.
- The staff was not as friendly as I am used to when staying in hotels.
Overall, I was pleased with this hotel and would consider staying there again.
