We chose this hotel as a base for sightseeing in New York without incurring the cost of Manhattan hotels. Parking at the hotel was free and everything seemed quite safe.
We thought the reception staff on the day of our arrival to be a little indifferent and not particularly forthcoming with advice. Quite a contrast to the people on our departure who recommended some final sightseeing at the waterfront at Hoboken.
Our room was large and had everything we wanted. It was clean, well-looked after and the beds were comfortable if a trifle firm. Breakfast provided a good selection of cooked and cold dishes eg eggs, bacon, potatoes, cereals, cakes, juices etc which was excellent given the hotel rate (our room was $99 but we paid $89 with AAA membership).
The transporation service to the local Secaucas railway station worked well although it did stop at 10pm (in which case you needed to take a taxi back to the hotel). The hotel was pretty strict about only coming out to collect you upon assurance that you were actually at Secaucas but this did not cause us any hardship. The return journey from Secaucas cost $8 and the trains were frequent and quite quick 10-15 mins for the journey.
We would recommend the hotel but you may wish to consider the price advantage against the total time journeying between Secaucas and Manhattan. This could amount to as much as an hour each way and for this reason, it was not feasible to return to the hotel after sightseeing to say go out to the theatre later. But if you are on a tight budget and either have no time pressure or don't mind being "on the go" all day followed by night time entertainment, this will be the place for you.
