I booked 10 nights online but left after the first night. The hotel, located in an industrial area with poor links to New York, was dirty and poorly maintained. The room had a broken door lock, greasy hand prints over the bed headboard and a 2" straw and white powder on the laminated page in the info folder. The NYC shuttle only operates for a few hours in the morning (7.45-11.30) and again in the evening (8pm-10pm) and the cost is $7 per trip with a surcharge for luggage. This is not advertised in their info. Breakfast is help-yourself cereals, breads and bagels. I booked this hotel because it was cheaper and I thought I would be able to commute to the NY attractions. My advice is to pay extra for a Manhattan hotel where the public transportation is inexpensive and excellent with quick links to the major airports and not-to-be-missed attractions. New York is a 24 hour city and you don't need to catch 10pm shuttles. Alternatively, look for hotels near to the NY subway system - Brooklyn or Queens perhaps.

I am a returning customer to this hotel since 2008, and since then, they have improved a lot. The rooms have been renovated, as well as the general infrastructure. Do not expect a 5 stars hotel, but do expect a great price/value relationship.

There is a private shuttle that takes you right to the heart of times square for 12 dollars round trip... Average continental breakfast, free high speed internet and parking lot... If you're driving and are not familiar with the area, ASK for directions right as you enter New Jersey... Getting to the hotel is a little tricky..
Very helpful and kind staff... Specially the General Manager.. If you ever need anything beyond your expectations, request to talk to her and chances are you'll get what you need.

Room Tip: If possible, request a room on the opposite side of the main building... (not in front of main avenu...

Been staying at this hotel over 5 years on business trips. Many great improvements to property since we started staying there. Much cleaner and more modern. Very convenient with shuttle to Times Square several times a day.

We booked in advance through Travelocity for a Sunday night. The previous Friday we called to add Saturday to our reservation. We were given a confirmation number and a price quote of $142. When we got to the hotel on Saturday, we checked in and the room was Perfect and exactly what we expected. On Sunday morning, we went into NYC, and received a call from the hotel telling us that we were supposed to check out. We told them, NO, we have a continuing reservation for Sunday. When we returned back to the hotel Sunday night, our hotel room was locked and they would not let us back into our room. The staff called and confirmed our travelocity reservation, thank God we had the info in hand. This took over half an hour to rectify and let us in our room where all our belongs were.

We checked out Monday morning, and once we got home, noticed that the hotel had charged us $279.99 for one night!! We have been dealing with the Customer Service center and the hotel at the same time and the hotel is currently refusing to fix the rate in which we reserved the room for. Might I add, we kept records of confirmation numbers and names of staff. What a hassle!

We now have to wait several more days for the hotel to attempt to rectify, before Customer Service can step in! I will never again stay here, regardless of how clean the hotel room was. I could have stayed in the city for that price!!!

Room Tip: TIP: MAKE SURE you either book ahead or through a travel agent. BEWARE of confirmation numbers and t...
