Good Location

HJ: Clifton is convenient to my family in Passaic and I have been there about five times. The rooms we had were recently renovated. They are clean and quiet. There is a peculiar odor in the halls and lobby - like a cheap, flowery perfume. An aerosol deodorizer would be better - to neutralize the musty smell. The windows were grimy on both sides and from our "balcony", the view was a corridor of garbage bags and discarded furniture that looked like a dump and a fire hazard.

The staff was very accommodating, the room was clean. Could have used another chair or two in the room. It was close to shopping, business and restaurants.

Ok

The room itself was nice but the bed made so much noise when you turned and it was so hot in the room. I turned the air con on and it worked for 5-10 minutes then turned for 5-10 minutes then turned back and so on. It was awful I didn't sleep well and I had to get up at 3am for a flight I prefer the Howard and Johnson in newark. The staff were very nice and helpful. It's a shame there's no shuttle to the airport.

Convenient location

The location of this hotel was great for our goal of shopping for setting up a new college student. Shopping was all close and easy to get to. Room was adequate and secured at all times. Shuttle to Times square was a perfect trip into the city and the cost less than using NJ Transit. Front counter staff ultra friendly and helpful. Lots of options for dining out that are all reasonably priced. Fridge and microwave hard to find in hotels in the area is a big plus. Overall I will most likely use this when I visit again.

Smash burger and Tick Tock Diner are great. Shannon Rose is a short drive but has great attmosphere and would recommend the Portabella and Goat Cheese Sand.
