From JFK take the Airtrain to Jamaica Station. Transfer onto the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station which is at 34th and 8th. Either walk or take a taxi to The Port Authority Bus Terminal (42nd and 8th). Get NJ Transit Bus #320 which has a stop right in front of your hotel.

Can you change your flight to go into EWR (Newark)?

Or, assuming that the ultimate purpose of your trip is to visit NYC, can you stay in a hotel located in NY State (there are hotels in Long Island City which is nearer JFK and on the NYC subway system -- but quite possibly more expensive than the La Quinta in Secaucus)

Thank you both.

the first reply looks like too many transfers.. if i should arrive PA, Isnt it better to take the bus from JFK to PA?

and as for the second reply- thank you for it, but impossible to land in Newark.. i should stay at NJ Secaucus as hotel was prepaid...

reading many posts - i assume the best is to reach PA and then take the #320 NJ bus.

more expensive then trains.. but i understand the for me me and my luggage - quite complicated to use the train...:(

The NYC Airporter goes between JFK and the PA http://www.nycairporter.com/

It is not as reliable as the train and very possibly not even as fast but given your situation I would use it.

It gets mixed reviews on yelp http://www.yelp.com/biz/nyc-airporter-astoria but I think people who post there tend to be the ones who have problems -- so I would not worry too much as long as your expectations are in line with reality

There are shared van service but they really get TERRIBLE reviews and it is universally recommended on TA to avoid them

And yes, unless you're willing to pay for a car service (probably around $100 + tolls & tip) the #320 bus is what you want . Here's the schedule http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0320.pdf

And here's a map of where you're staying http://www.harmonmeadow.com/map/HMmap.pdf

If you used a travel agent you should complain
