"The bathroom door didn't lock. The housekeeper didn't make the bed the 2nd day. The hotel clerk was more interested in ordering food than in assisting me, but the other employees were great. Breakfast was the best part of the stay. I was disappointed that parking wasn't free.2018-05-15"

"A clean, affordable hotel. The restaurant was good.2017-04-15"

"The hotel was lovely, clean, and comfortable. Definitely stay here.2020-08-02"

"Close walk to the Red Bulls game, and there were a few restaurants nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful in every way. We unexpectedly got a corner room suite that was perfect for our family of 4. Good continental breakfast, too. This would be a great hotel if you want to be close but not in NYC. The train station is next door for an easy ride into the city. Reasonable parking rates.2015-06-23"

"Good hotel for an overnight stay. The staff was fine. We had a pleasant pre-cruise stay.2016-10-20"
"We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the hotel lobby, but that changed when we walked into our room. The windows needed to be replaced; we could feel the wind blowing through them. The heater didn't adequately warm the room, though we had it on high. The "desk" was a piece of wood that was painted and attached to the wall and dresser. The door lock was falling off, and the bathroom door was hard to open. The walls were filthy, especially in the bathroom. We didn't feel safe at all. When I complained to the front desk clerk, she said the entire place was newly renovated. We'll never stay again and don't recommend.2015-03-03"

Our smoking room was clean and smelled lovely. Great service. There was coffee on tap and a choice of delivered food. We had a comfortable stay.2016-03-23"

"Convenient to the NJ Turnpike, but the hotel was hard to spot at night. Safe check-in, and parking was in a gated lot. Bring your own toiletries. Rooms are only serviced every 3rd day due to Covid. Breakfast was a bagel, apple, and coffee, served by a hostess from behind a plastic barrier.2020-12-12"

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.
