“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Just returned from spending three nights here. I totally agree with all the previous positive reviewers. This place is a gem. Very clean, staff is friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent, fresh made waffles, eggs, juices, cereals, yogurts, bagels, muffins, etc. all included in the price. Just across the street from an Outback and Carrabbas. The NJ 320 transit bus to Times Square (Bus Terminal) picks up just across the street. Value is so much better than the Courtyard Marriott across the street where we have stayed before. We will be staying here in the future.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

The Meadowlands River Inn is an ok hotel for a stopover. The room was fine, with a good shower. A cab into Penn Station on Manhattan runs about $65, without tip and the 320 bus departs from the stop across the street which costs about $4 return and takes about 30mins. There's not much around the hotel except for a couple of restaurants and more hotels, but Secaucus isn't really a top holiday destination!

Secaucus is a nice place to stay and commute to NYC for work or leisure by using public transportation that is across the street. Also across the street from the hotel to the right is about 15 restaurants including coffee shops and fast food. To the left of the hotel is about another set of restaurants including retail shops. Only 2 miles to the Metlife stadium for NFL fans, and for concert attendees. 5 minute walk to the EXPO center for convention attendees. Just a nice place to stay for any reason. Thank you for the 4 star review, we hope to see you again.

We have stayed at this hotel twice on a weekend trip to NYC and this is a great place to stay. Extremely clean and comfortable and only a couple minutes from the city. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby and it is right by the bus stop. I will stay at this hotel again when we travel to NYC.

This used to be a Hampton Inn. It still has the nice clean rooms with the very comfortable beds and the complimentary breakfast buffet as it did under the Hampton franchise. It is only one block to the bus stop and the easy 20 minute commute ino Midtown Manhattan. You can also drive into the city in 30 minutes depending on traffic, or you can drive to Weehawken and take a ferry across the Hudson to the free Red and White busses that drop you at various locations around Manhattan. There is a good assortment of restaurants within walking distance.

The rooms are comfortable and spacious at half the price of comparable accommodations in Manhattan and parking is free. It has easy access to I-95 and the NJ turnpike for easy driving to other cities in the Northeast. This is a great bargain place to stay when visiting New York City.

Thank you for the great review. You said it all. Great Location, Great Price, Great Standards. There is the BUS 320 that drops you off at Times Square. There is the Secaucus Junction train station, a minutes ride to Penn Station New York. There is the bus to Hoboken, and catch the Ferry Ride to Mid or Lower Manhattan. Multiple options to travel right from the hotel. Thank you for staying and writing about your stay. See you soon, again.

My friend and I stayed at the then known as Hampton Inn Secaucus. Rooms were spacious and and very clean. Location was excellent close to the Bus stop and so much to do in the surrounding areas.

With the above said , what made our stay even more excellent was the GREAT and OUTSTANDING SERVICE we received from a lady named Jennifer Grant. From the moment we stepped in to check in she was so friendly and helpful. With our endless questions she remained polite.

We would definitly stay at this hotel again.

Greetings to Jennifer from the 2 ladies that visited from SOUTH AFRICA. Keep up the great workl !!

Regards
Ayesha :)

Room Tip: room 419 was great .. great view

Our company has a rate at this hotel and so we are obliged to stay here when visiting HQ. The property was until recently a Hampton Inn.

The entire hotel is in dire need up renovation. Old furnishings, dingy, worn carpet, torn bedding and disastrous bathrooms.

If you aren't picky and just want a place to lay your head while you're visiting New York, then I'm sure this hotel would work for you. Not sure their rates relative to others in the area, but if you're talking a $20 difference per night, I would certainly recommending staying elsewhere.

Terrible, basic breakfast is served in the morning. Cheap food. The hot selections aren't worth even trying.

Staff are friendly and as helpful as they can be.

If they just renovated I would change my review. But for now, this is a hole.

Dear DAN,
I am very sorry that the hotel did not meet your expectations. I am happy that in spite of the shortcomings you still noticed the good in our staff, thank you. Things have changed in this hotel, mainly the brand name and reward points. What has not changed is the same cleaning staff, same front desk staff, and same breakfast items from the same vendor, and the same free AT&T internet and free parking. I do share the same view with you about the building needing an uplift. Having said that I want to assure you that the cleanliness of the room is above standards because we still use the same guidelines of the previous brand, it is an older building but well kept and run by an extremely friendly helpful staff. I hope you continue to come and stay with us. I want to thank you for taking time to write this review.
