My husband & I stayed at this hotel as the hotels in New York/Manhattan were quite expensive. It's only about 6 miles from Manhattan and the NJ Transit bus stop directly across the street from the hotel takes you to the heart of Manhattan for about $4/one way or $8/round trip. We tried the public transportation (bus), the subway and taxis.

You could tell that the hotel was somewhat 'aged' and is in dire need of some upgrades, but overall, our stay was nice.

This hotel, which is just being rebranded into River Inn, exceeded our expectation in everything!
Reception staff is very helpful and quick in dealing with issues; rooms are spacious, clean and quiet; breakfast is buffet style and food offered is delicious!
The bus to NY is across the street and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe. There is a huge Walmart at the end of the road and several restaurants nearby.
I will definitely return to this place next time I'm in NY and I thank all the staff for making our stay really enjoyable.

Great location. Walked across street to use computer since it was inoperational for guests at this time. Needed to access for an emergency business problem. Clerk called ahead for us to use at the Hilton across the street. No courtesy vans at this hotel, had to walk to amenities, but not too far even though I had foot problems.

My sincere apologies about your experience, while we were in transition from Hampton to the New Brand. Those seven days were quite unique to us and the guest, we had many obstacles in the transfer. I can see from your review that you still said" Nice Stay" I am humbled by that. Please come again, we will make sure all your needs are met to your satisfaction. Once more I am sorry for the difficulties you faced.

Hotel was very nice and the staff was friendly. I had an issue with the TV not working and they wanted to send a cable signal thru to get it to work, which it did not. After checking it out myself, found the TV in cable had been disconnected and fell behind the wall unit. Alittle struggle to move out, but was able to reconnect the cable and the TV worked fine.

This was a clean quiet place to stay while we visited NYC for 3 days and nights. It's location is very convenient. It was a 2 minute walk to the bus stop and an easy 15-20 minute bus ride from there to NYC. Also within easy walking distance was a small outdoor mall with shops, restaurants and a movie theater.
Overall the staff were friendly and helpful, though 3 stops at the front desk for one extra pillow yielded no results.
Free breakfast was pretty good: fresh fruit and pastries, cereal and waffles, coffee, juices and milk. All tasted great, a super value.
Would have rated the place a 5, but the lack of a pool and the fact that they couldn't find us one pillow kept it a 4.
