Perfect for A Couple Nights

Posted 18-Oct-2014
This place was a perfect place to stay for a smaller budget for a New York trip! My husband and I stayed here for one night and it seemed as if they also upgraded our room from two double beds to a king bed and a double bed!

Great Value with Good Access to Manhattan!

Posted 18-Oct-2014
Pros: Easy access to transit, large, clean, comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff, light breakfast provided every morning.
Cons: add scrambled eggs and toast to the breakfast offering :)
Location: close to Journal Square PATH trains, drug stores close by, nice diner a few blocks away
We stayed four nights over an extended weekend and enjoyed it very much. We came to town to see Broadway shows and NYC, and accomplished everything we set out to do. The hotel has good access to transit via Journal Square station just a few blocks away. We saved a lot of money by staying there versus in the city, enabling us to see more shows and attractions. The room was always clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Don't Go

Posted 23-Sep-2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: Needs a 100% reno and a neighbourhood rehab program
Location: An india community nearby with good food.
This hotel is in a terrible neighborhood. The hotel itself is worn, feels dirty, and lucky us! they gave us a dingy bedroom off of a boardroom. We used the boardroom table to hold our bags because we were so afraid of bed bugs. We actually left 2 hours after checking in. Without spending a single night. And we paid for 3! What a sad rip off.

Good hotel for price, nice staffs

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: Staffs are nice, reasonable cost, close to PATH station
Cons: I guess the old infrastructure is hard to be improved.
Pros: Comparing much more expensive hotels in Manhattan, this hotel is much convenient to access downtown NYC with reasonable price. Close to PATH station and one MetroCard can be used for both PATH and MTA and used for multiple people. Same as others' feedback, their staffs were smile and helpful. Good breakfast. Cons: The surrounding area looks old and poor. The hotel is a bit old, so there was some power shakes that shut down TV once and several times of light flash.

Close to transport links to Manhattan and beyond

Posted 10-Jul-2014
Pros: Friendly and approachable staff and better priced than the hotels in Manhattan
Cons: General upgrade needed and representations to local government to clean up the midtown area
Location: Short train ride to the Waterfront with spectacular views of Manhattan across the Hudson River
Located midtown and just a short walk to Journal Square for PATH train service to Manhattan / Newark, so no car required. The hotel was a former art deco style block of flats in a run down and untidy, but vibrant area of Jersey City. The hotel decor and fittings are in need of an upgrade but this is offset by the staff who are positive and helpful. There are plenty of eateries in the area with the food predominantly of the taco / burger / bread rolls variety, but for the Bits, a five minute walk away there is a whole street of Indian restaurants. Take the PATH uptown to Grove Street / Exchange Place / Waterfront and that is where the restaurants / bistros are located in a rapidly developing and much tidier area

Best place to stay if you are visiting NYC!

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: Very cheap rooms, fastest and cheapest way to go to NY. Decent hotel rooms, no funky smell, great and very friendly staff, good breakfast, good wifi.
Cons: - Air Conditioners in the rooms seriously need to be replaced. They are very old. - Loud walking sounds from upstairs, it is a bit disturbing.
Location: Path station is 10 min walk away. 33rd street train takes you to mid-town NYC in 27 min. WTC train takes you to World Trade Center in 10 min
We arrived a couple of hours early, the staff were very accommodating and provided us a very nice room. Parking was not available on location but there is paid parking just one block away for a very affordable price, plenty of parking available even during the long weekend. The hotel has the 1970s feel, the rooms were decent looking, no funky smell. They provided breakfast between 6 AM - 10 AM. The breakfast was good. They have shuttle service to Newark airport, they also reserve cabs for us if we inform them in advance. We took a cab to Liberty State park. The staff are very hard working and focused. They are extremely patient. PATH train station is very close, a 5-10 min walk from the hotel. Very cheap and the trains take us to the heart of NYC in less than half hour. 10 min to World Trade Center(Mon-Fri). The trains are not full, the stations are not very crowded. The train frequency is also very good. Very close to fantastic Indian restaurants(in Indian square). I didnt walk around the area after 10 PM, so I am not sure how safe it is after dark, but before 10 PM, I am sure that it is a very safe area.
