We were very pleased with our accommodations here. The room was very clean. It had a wide flat screen TV, microwave, small refrigerator, single cup coffee, tea or hot water maker, hair dryer, a small table with two chairs to sit at, clock, phone, free Wi-Fi, safe at extra $1.50 and own unit to control the temperature in the room. The location is just up the road from Giants Football Stadium and Route 3. we are seniors and for the location of the motel we found the cost to be very reasonable.

The hotel is located very close to NY. By car its 15' to go to central park. This is the best advantage of this hotel. Rooms are clean and large enough for 5 persons including a roller bed. We have 3 children 16,15 and 8. The worst point is the breakfast location. It's in a covered yard inside the hotel as if you were in a car park. Not very attractive and romantic. The front desk staff was pleasant and gave us very goof advices concerning the way to visit NY or the restaurants near the hotel. Nevertheless we have spend a good short stay, SUBWAY and CHEESEBURGER are closing at 22pm.

Room Tip: all rooms seem same wherever you are located inside yard, outside, whatever stair you will choose.

The hotel was located close to Met Life Stadium within walking disatnce to Redds Bar & Restaurant where you can get a shuttle to and from any events at the stadium-just ask the staff & they take care of it ($10 per car for parking & free shuttle or if you walk you just pay the $10 for 2 people). The room was tidy but older and still had not been renovated. I asked for a renovated room but was told none were available. The front desk staff was pleasant & informative about travel options. The bus #161 can be picked up right down the street in front of the gas station and takes you right into the Port Authority & Bus Terminal were you can get access to any part of NYC. Free available parking and they let us park as long as we wanted. Not the nicest area but we had no problems walking at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room

We have stayed in this area before. What we like is you can walk out the door. Hop on the NJ bus and it takes you right to NY city. The Econolodge is a great clean place to stay. We had two rooms that were extra nice for the area. The breakfast that comes with the room was also great.

Room Tip: You have to climb the stairs so make sure to get a lower room.

Chose this hotel because of its close proximity to NYC (20 min by bus), the free parking and convenient public transportation - the bus is across the street, as others have mentioned. The service was always friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean. I had no choice but to book a smoking room and the smell didn't overpower us. A/c worked fine, which was good since we were in a massive heat wave. The breakfast area was quite hot though, even though there were fans. Not too much choice for breakfast, but was fine. I would suggest they put extra toasters and waffle makers.
When traveling back from NYC, make sure to tell the bus driver to stop. It worked well on the first night but on the second we had to urgently ask him to stop because he didn't notice the stop request. Oh well, he left us right at the entrance of the hotel, so that worked out fine! It is true that the walk back from the regular bus stop isn't very pleasant - no sidewalks and your walking next to run-down buildings. Atleast its not a far walk.
So if your looking for a convenient, inexpensive hotel to visit NYC, and your just there to sleep really, this hotel is a two thumbs up!

We were there July 6-10 2013. The outside does not look as pleasant as the pictures but the room was very nice. Everything except the carpet was renovated. The bus stop is about a block away but returning at night isn't the nicest walk. there are two abandoned buildings on your path. They do give you a paper with direction to get back from NYC. The round trip to NYC is $9. If you drive into NYC it cost $13 toll but is hard to get parking. The breakfast is outside on a patio but it was only waffles and some apples. Metlife stadium is in walking distance. You can drive to Liberty Park in NJ to go to the Statue of Liberty in 10 minutes. Our first room the air conditioner didn't work but we had no problem with changing to another room.

Not only a clean room, friendly personnel, but a great location. We were visiting NY for the first time and we were very please to have all the info about our commute ready for us. The bus station is 3 steps away from the hotel, the nice lady from the hotel gave us a note with all the steps we had to follow to travel back and forth. Our nightmare changed into a happy, stress-free and fun adventure.
A great value for this priceless price !!Free breakfast, free parking, a gas station across street, for who knows what you forgot home... I will definitely book this hotel next time I have to be near NY and I will recommend to everybody!
