“Small, but excellent.”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

We stayed at the Best Western - Ft. Lee on 12/11/2012. The only slight drawback is the the rooms are a bit small, along with the front desk/breakfast area. Other than that, the hotel is in a great location, adjacent to the George Washington Bridge, and provides easy access to New York City. The front desk staff were excellent, the room was clean, and we could not have been happier with our stay at this hotel! Be careful when approaching the hotel on Rt. 4, as you slow down to access the hotel driveway, other drivers might be come up on your rear quickly, so be alert!

Dear Nylonghorn

We are happy that you enjoy your recent visit with us and most of all choose to let others know how fulfilling it was staying at our hotel.

With our rooms a little bit smaller we try to ensure that they are always proply maintained and always up to our guest standard.
Our delicious continental breakfast that is served each morning is also another talking point from our guest.
From Belgium waffles with strawberries to several choices of cereals hard boiled eggs.

We hope you will come again soon.

Sincerly Yours

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Fort Lee while visiting New York city and we got the best deal staying at this hotel. The hotel is located at a very good location, very easy to go across the bridge into the train station. And of course the hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. We knew about Rosa even before we meet her and she is as friendly as people say she is, (thanks Rosa for being so helpful). The hotel is very clean, the rooms are comfortable and just great for relaxing after a day sightseeing in New York City. This was a great holiday and hopefully in the future we will visit again now that we know about this hotel...a special thanks to Rosa!

We stayed here on business trip as it is in walking distance of the office buildings on Executive Drive. We usually don't hire a car and had previously stayed at the Doubletree across the other side of Route 4 but found it tedious to get cabs all the time, so we thought we'd try the BW. Glad we did. Rooms were fine and staff very friendly. Breakfast was included and good, though served in the very small reception area and was self service.

It's possible to walk to the bridge plaza area to get the bus across the bridge to Manhattan, and also to walk to some restaurants. Maybe this is just a UK-thing, but I hate not being able to walk anywhere!

Would be a good cheap option when visiting NYC as it really is very easy to get across the bridge and then take the Express subway line. :)

We stayed in a king suite for our 3-day trip to NYC. Close to the NYC (although traffic, always, is SSSLLOOOWW) but since we stayed on weekdays, the traffic was somewhat not slow at least when we started from the hotel. The room was compact with all basic amenities like mini-fridge, iron board, closet, coffee maker & TV. We would have preferred a microwave but we knew it even before we booked the room. So, whenever we need to warm something, we would take a short walk to the reception / breakfast room to do so. The room service was excellent. Our room was cleaned when we left. There is also ice-maker etc. on the top floor in case you need them. The bed was nice & comfy. Overall, things were clean. On all 3 mornings, we had a decent breakfast in the reception / office. Only gripe (which I let them know in my feedback) was that I hated coffeemaker in the bathroom. It should be in the room. Do not trust your GPS. We were stranded in the highway with the GPS asking us to get down. And the hotel was visible from there and we did not know how to get there. So, we had to inquire at the local shops to reach there. Parking lot was spacious, we did not have to "look for" space when we needed to park. We always parked close to our room. All rooms have to be accessed from a main entrance door with access card, so that way we felt more secure. Front desk staff were very helpful & friendly. ECONOMICAL & good stay at the same time. Cannot imagine the same if you were staying in the NYC area. You will only get economy OR comfort.

Room Tip: DO NOT TRUST your GPS to reach the hotel.
