Knights Inn South Amboy/Garden State Parkway South Exit 125
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in South Amboy
Reviewed July 27, 2014

My sister stayed there last night with her friend and her parents. She called me crying because it was creepy and dirty, and that she wanted to go home. I thought "How bad could it be?". Our family normally stay in resorts or 5 star hotel so I was just thinking she was being a prissy brat lol. But I did end making the 2hour drive to get her and was appalled! There was cars coming and going like crazy and it was 3am! I went inside to her room to get her and all I could smell was weed. I got to her room, they let me in and I was ready to cry! there was stuff running down the walls, my shoes were sticking to the floor and there was a disgusting smell of vomit. All of them were sitting on top of the bed on beach towels that the brought. the staff was very rude and gave us dirty looks while leaving. I was creeped out enough that I had given all the girls pepper spray which probably wouldn't have done anything. When we got outside there was people gathered not far from my car and they were talking and pointing at it. when we finally got out of there I was relieved to say the least. I suggest no one stay there. It's dirty and made me fear for our safety.

I made reservations online and paid before we arrived.. they locked me out after one night saying i hadnt paid?? no handicapp nothing and walls look like someone sprayed something all over them by the table, the door and behind the night stands. the guy at the front desk was not helpful and made no apoligies for their error. I would never stay here again.

have stayed at this hotel while traveling in the area on business. The rooms are clean and have everything I need for a knight's stay.For the price it truly was amazing value for money. The check in was quick and both in the evening and morning the staff (I think management) were very friendly and welcoming.

I found super cheap deal online, and I stayed there. Close to NY, just 35 min. All of the people at the desk were extremely helpful, positive, polite and friendly. Room was very nice and clean, king size bed super comfy. We will come back there again!

My friend and I drove down from michigan to do some fishing, and needed a room for afew days. We found this place, and decided to try it out. I knew that is wasnt a 5 star place, but at first glance it seemed ok. We check in at around 6am or so and went to sleep. We woke up and left the room at 11am to head out to the bay. We returned to the room pretty late in the evening, and WOW.... it was an entierly differnt atmosphere. Creepy people everwhere, cars zipping in and out as if they where dealing drugs. I went up to our room, tried the card key and it didnt work so I got a new one from the office. returned to the room, opened the door and was in shock. It was obvious that people had been in the room because there was 2 plastic cups on the desk covered with red lipstick, the bed sheets where half torn off the one bed and a dirty nasty hand towel was laying on the bed. Then we noticed that the laptop was missing also. It was a very expensive laptop, dell 17 inch. I called down to the office, demanding the worker came up to the room. He took forever getting up there, and didnt seem to care at all. Come to find out this place rents rooms by the hour aswell, and they re rented our room for 4 hours while we where gone. Im assuming it was a hooker that rented the room, who else rents by the hour !!! That explains the lipstick and the dirty "clean up" towel on the bed. To make a long story short the police where called and so was the manager. The manager said the maids must have put the laptop in a storage room when they cleaned the room for the hourly renter's. I was still checked in to the room on the hotel computer, so how could the have even rented it again. The manger was never able to produce the laptop, and pretty much told me file a report and piss off. I live 680 miles from there, so know im screwed. The police office was really mad with this situation, but he really couldnt do much. He told me that this place is nothing but trouble and never stay in that are. There's xxx strip clubs. All over and prostitution is a big thing around there. The manager took my info, and claims he will get to the bottom of it but im not holding my breath on that. They did refund my money, and we left immediately. Fearing retaliation, or vandalism of my 40+k vehicle. I will be filing a report with the BBB aswell. When we drove by this place the next day in the early afternoon there was 2 police cars outfront, so its safe to assume they are called there pretty regularly. Stay away from here, its not a safe place at all.

If you do not follow the directions or signs you can miss the entrance. The lobby is smaller than the picture suggest but the service was good. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Could not say that the continental breakfast was any good though. They had cereal and toast,. One of the coffee pots had cold coffee in it. Allin all the breakfast is what knocks it down to average.
