Great location for NYC & Cape Liberty
Posted Nov 19, 2016 on Hotels
We chose this hotel based on its proximity to NYC, and Cape Liberty for a cruise we were taking. I was very nervous about finding a hotel in the area, but didn't want to pay too much (like staying in NYC), and didn't want a commute to make it to the cruise terminal.
This hotel was perfect for our needs. It was the same Comfort Suites experience I've had plenty of other places. The hotel is located on a very busy one way road but it was easy to find. There is a small parking lot, that I feared would fill up, but was never an issue. It was adequately lit and felt relatively safe.
The hotel offers a shuttle into Manahttan but it seemed expensive for the trip and had to be prearranged. Instead, we drove to the local park and ride (North Bergen), where there was plenty of parking. We bought a round trip ticket from the machine, which also covered the parking. We caught the 320 bus that takes you to Times Square. It runs very frequently, was a relatively quick ride and couldn't have been easier for our first visit to the city.
On the morning of our cruise, it was an easy, quick and traffic free trip to the cruise terminal. Once there, we heard horror stories of how long it took others getting there because of traffic from NYC.
I would stay here again to save money when we visit NYC again!
