“Choose somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

This hotel is one of the worst I've stayed in. Everything was grungy, especially the sofabed. We booked a non-smoking room, but were given a smoking room when we arrived. I am very allergic to cigarette smoke, but they said they were sold out and could not give us another room.

The room and hallways reeked of cigarette smoke. The carpet was littered with cigarette burns. There were stains on the bed, walls, shower, etc. The breakfast was also likewise disappointing and stale.

For the value, we will definitely not make this mistake again.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

The best part is location...many restaurants and shops with walking distance. Shuttle bus that takes you into NYC! It's downhill after that! The rooms were just gross. The group I was with included 17-14 year-old boys that play hockey. They were grossed out by the nastiness of our rooms and bathrooms! It takes a lot for boys to notice! We, Moms, made a trip to the store to buy bleach to clean and spray to try to get rid of stale cigarette smell-from our nonsmoking room!

We stayed at La Quinta for a dive convention as this was the hotel of choice. All events were held there so super convenient. For a New York hotel the rooms were huge - we had a two bedded suite and the breakfast just what was needed. A free hotel shuttle bus would take you to local shops and a shuttle bus to show was also available. Elevators were great and rarely a wait. This is a not five star hotel by any means but the service was ten star, all the staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful.
The night we arrived was after a long flight and we were booked into the wrong La Quinta - although this one was booked the staff went out of their way to find us a room. Will book there every time for the show.

We stayed in NYC for mega(MEGA)bucks a few weeks ago, and returned to the area for an event in the Meadowlands last weekend, so this time we stayed on the thrifty side of the Hudson. The La Q was the host hotel (with almost ALL events there) which was super-convenient, BUT - we also got a *suite* (standard), two beds (which usually costs more for some reason), *free parking,* a small but totally adequate workout room (which I actually used!), free shuttle to other hotels/convention center, both elevators worked great (long story), and most importantly - the staff - every single one (with the exception of one semi-rude bartender who was a total anomaly), from the maid to the desk clerk to the catering manager to the waitstaff, to the shuttle driver, to the doorman to the - you name it! - was super polite, attentive, gracious, (trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, etc.!). Even the catered food at the evening events was super. We will definitely book here again next year.

Room Tip: Get a room on the NYC side of the building for a nice view of the city skyline!

I stayed at La Quinta Secaucus Meadowlands with my husband and children for couple of days. Everything worked well, and we were very comfortable. The best part was the staff, especially Richard. He is very helpful, patient and friendly.

We will definitely be back.

I stayed at La Quinta Secaucus Meadowlands for 8 nights, with my parents, while we visited with family and saw New York City. We chose La Quinta for its location and price. We were bowled over by the excellent customer service.

This is an older hotel, with renovations and updates underway - some things changed during the 8 days that we were there! There was a letter on the desk in our room, advising guests that the hotel is undergoing a transformation. While we were there, we found it to be immaculately clean and well-kept. Everything worked well, and we were very comfortable.

Our room had a king bed for my parents, and a couch that made into a bed in the living room for me. There was plenty of space for the 3 of us in our mini-suite. We appreciated 2 televisions, wireless internet in the room, and a bar fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Mom, who has some mobility challenges, especially appreciated the grab bars and no-slip bottom in the bathtub/shower. She told me that the arrangements in the bathroom were the best she has seen in all of the hotels she has visited. This was in a standard room (not specifically for people with physical disabilities). Our non-smoking room was clean and fresh, and the housekeeping staff made it up every day to be crisp and welcoming when we returned from our long days of visiting and touring. The beds were very comfortable, and there was plenty of closet and dresser drawer space for us to unpack for our longer stay.

We enjoyed the hot breakfast that is included with the room. It's standard La Quinta fare as described in other reviews here. The breakfast attendants were friendly and helpful, and kept everything fresh and replenished. The breakfast room is unusually large, so we never had trouble finding a table. For other meals, we were happy to find more than a dozen restaurants in the immediate area, as well as a Walmart and Sam's Club nearby. We had a rental car for most of our stay, but used the hotel shuttle twice, and found the service to be quick and friendly. If you have a car, there are some spots right out front of the hotel, as well as ample free parking in a covered structure adjacent.

We enjoyed catching the bus into Manhattan several times. Right outside the front doors of the hotel is the first stop on the local bus route into the city. This means the bus will never sail past, already full of passengers. Even late at night, we felt safe returning from the city and being dropped off right in front of our hotel.

The best part was the staff. Everyone we met was friendly, welcoming and eager to help us enjoy our stay. They went out of their way to greet us warmly every time we came in the door or went out for the day, and they were helpful in recommending restaurants and helping us to find our way around. This made us feel truly appreciated and comfortable during our stay.

Eight days went by in the blink of an eye. We can't wait to return, and well certainly stay at La Quinta Inn Secaucus Meadowlands again.

The hotel is not far from Giants stadium with good access to New York. The room I stayed in had a living area with couch, tv, desk, microwave and small refrigerator. The bedroom was off that room divided by a door with the bath off the bedroom.
It is an older hotel. The continental breakfast was typical for La Quinta.
The staff were friendly. The parking was in a parking garage next door and across the street.

Room Tip: The rooms on the north side give a good view of the New York City skyline. You can easily see the E...
