When booking this hotel online it seemed to have everything we wanted in a hotel. The pictures online made this hotel look huge and inviting. It offered free shuttle service to and from the airport. There was a shuttle to the cruiseport in Bayonne (for a per person fee) which we needed.
When we arrived we were disappointed to see the real facts of the hotel: the lobby was small and in need of some TLC, a huge abandoned building was our view out of our room window, the elevator would jump and make loud noises if more than 3 people were riding, we were right in the midst of freight docks of some sort, and in order to catch transportation into New York we needed to take the shuttle back to the airport. Also, there did not appear to be other restaurants close, and the hotel restaurant was not open for lunch.
On the plus side, there was a tour company that picked up at the hotel for a day excursion into New York. For a fee, the shuttle would take you to the outlet mall if you wanted to get away from the hotel. The restaurant was open late evening with a very limited menu but the food was alright. The shuttle drivers were friendly and helpful.
If I was leaving for another cruise out of Bayonne I would be ok with this hotel for the overnight stay before boarding the ship. However, I would not book this hotel for an extended stay.
