"The hotel was a little dated, but it was OK. The check-in clerk didn't explain how the elevator worked.2022-01-15"
"I had an enjoyable stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful. I appreciated that the ferry to NYC was right outside the door, and there was a shuttle back from the Port Imperial ferry later in the evening. Be prepared for the $25 parking fee.2018-10-15"
"Great hotel room. I had a gorgeous view of New York across the water. The bed was luxurious. Great restaurant downstairs. My stay was very pleasant.2015-05-12"
"The customer service was awful from check-in to checkout. The front desk clerks were always rude and never smiled. The toilet paper roll was almost empty, so we asked for another roll and extra towels; we were told to come back the next day. We had to go to a store and buy our own toilet paper. There was shady activity going on outside. The hotel pool and exercise room were closed due to Covid. We decided not to stay.2021-06-26"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
