Small room but comfortable. Not very soundproof. Heard our neighbors all night our first night. Otherwise, exactly what we needed

False Advertising!!

1 out of 5
Posted Dec 15, 2016
Maybe I wouldn't be so angry if I had known what I was getting myself into, but this "hotel" was falsely advertised. It is nothing more than a dumpy motel facing a loud highway. The pictures as advertised are absolutely false. The rooms are very small and dirty. The previous customer's old towels were still in the bathroom. The shower looked gross. The complimentary breakfast sucks! And the "not my problem" attitude of the staff is absolutely awful. I was so scared to spend the night in this shady place that I had someone stay on the phone with me all night. I have never had such a bad experience at a hotel before. The minute I got there I wanted to go home. DONT GO! There is a perfectly good Comfort Inn facing this dump.I was terrified to stay the night but my room was non-refundable. If my room was refundable I definitely wouldn't have stayed the night. This so WAY OVERPRICED and they charge you a ridiculous $30 fee for checking into your room early. OVERALL BAD EXPERIENCE. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Not bad for the $$ Had to wait for clerk to call his manager, I showed my PAID Expedia room and there was a problem with my reservation I guess. He was on the phone with his boss speaking Arabic. Very rude in hospitality business. You speak the native language, or the language the guest speaks. I have no idea what the guy was saying about us!! Breakfast was continental with a wa

Business meetings in Manhattan

Pros: Clean. Polite people. Very quiet if you ask for one of the rooms in the upper level. Quieter than any place in midtown Manhattan. And very very cost effective. A no frills kind of place so do not expect a Taj Mahal.But, for a guy who travels to NYC a lot, you are a stones throw from the Lincoln tunnel. You don't need a car to get into Manhattan since they have a cheap shuttle too.
Cons: The rooms are spacey, but old. Definitely a C- level facility. No pools, Not a place for kids or to impress your spouse.
Location: On Tonnelle Ave in N Bergen NJ. An easy entry point to Manhattan, if you are aware of the traffic patterns. Nothing to do near or in the HOJO.

Cheap hotel for a reason

by from Cayman Islands
Posted Nov 3, 2016
Pros: The Breakfast was good, the city shuttle was a comparable price and easy ride, the rooms were cleaned every day.
Cons: renovations of the rooms maybe and advertising of the correct types of beds
Location: It's very close to the city, it was also quite close to shopping in NJ and a cinema is you didn't want to go over to NYC.
Hotel was not at all what was advertised, we booked a 2 queen bedroom suite because my husband is 6'2. What we got was a cramped 2 full-size beds suite that could barely hold the two of us and our son. But we made the most of it as we weren't spending a lot of time in the room. But the bathroom needs to be updated: a lot of rust on fixtures and we had two melipedis in our room. Also the fact that we had to go up or down a hill everytime we had to leave or return to our room wasn't too helpful. The shuttle to the city was a great deal and we would recommend that to anyone. Also the cab service "Day and Night Taxi Service" was great! quick response, friendly, great prices!

Stay next door at the comfort INN

Pros: the only likable item was the female counter person she was hot
Cons: clean it better
Horrible experience Who forgets to clean a room that the occupancy left in early AM and returned at 930 pm. Got back went to shower no towels beds both unmade. Counter person sold me a very expensive boat/bus tour that wasn't what I wanted nor asked for but he made his cut of the money. NYC itself is pretty but many people begging on the streets and wait staff in restaurants are very slow and rude food way over priced.
