We looked for a place to stay outside Manhattan that is accessible to Manhattan but not as pricy. The Holland hotel was a good choice. It is located near the entrance to the Holland tunnel. It's 10 minutes walking distance to the nearest PATH station (the train that takes you into Manhattan). The station is right next to Newport Mall, where you can do some shopping which is usually much cheaper than NY (no sales tax on clothing). The train ride itself is about 10 minutes and you're in 33rd street. If you want to continue the ride using NY subway, you need to pay for another ticket (so each way may costs double) as PATH is a different network.
The rooms are fairly simple but clean and satisfying for someone who's just looking for a place to take a shower and sleep after a long day in NY. We took a room on the second floor facing the parking lot (which is more quiet than the rooms facing the main road). Bear in mind that the hotel doesn't have an elevator.
Breakfast is complementary and include pastry, juice and coffee. They don't have a breakfast room, so you either eat standing or take the food to your room.
The hotel is pretty close to Newark airport (some 20-30 minutes drive).
In conclusion, the best option of course is to sleep in Manhattan itself, but if you'd rather pay as half or even third as any 2-star hotel in the city, this is a very good option.
