awesome hotel but not sure for the value since i am from the south and the price seemed kind of high; but since right across the river from NY, it is probably reasonable.

Great location

This place was great. We were 4 in the room, which was essentially a small apartment. We had a full kitchen w/ a pull-out couch and separate bedroom. Even with 4 adults it didn't feel too crowded. Only steps from the PATH, we were downtown in a matter of minutes. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my closest friends.

Nice weekend hotel

This hotel was a great place to stay when visiting a nearby friend. I didn't spend much time there, but it was quiet and the staff was very helpful. Its also very close to the PATH train allowing you easy access to manhattan.

The product would best suit relatively self-sufficient business and independent travelers looking for a well maintained, secure and quiet spot with quick and easy access to Manhattan, Hoboken, public transport links and Newark International. A good selling point is the 'normality' on offer; pleasant staff, no packs of loud guests in the corridors, short wait times for the lifts, and none of the 'tourist trap' nonsense you'll find at the large midtown Manhattan hotels. On the other hand, there is no grandeur, ceremony or sense of luxury - the room was well equipped, the stuff in in could have been quieter and newer, but everything was in order and there was no sense of being chiseled or duped. Comfort level was good. Sleep was easy. Space was sufficient for up to 2 people. Self-catering is very possible using the fully equipped kitchen area. I've stayed in bigger and better but when you open the door you won't think, 'What have I done now?'. So I liked the place and I'd recommend it with the caveats mentioned above (we're talking about a no service hotel otherwise on a par with a UK 3 star). What works best is the location. This part of Jersey City is virtually on the Hudson. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been poured into the redevelopment of that waterside, so your immediate environment is not just secure but actually quite enviable. You cross the road from the hotel to get to the new boardwalk, which gives you a postcard view of Manhattan. It is a whole minute to get to the LRT (tram); do go to Washington Street, Hoboken (it only takes 10 minutes to get to what in tourist terms is an unspoilt historic gem). 5 minutes along the boardwalk gets you to Exchange Place. The PATH train will have you at WTC soon thereafter. Or walk a couple more minutes to Paulus Hook ferry (unmissable) and make the tourist free ride up to 37th Street. You don't get these options if you're stuck in Times Square. I haven't mentioned Newport Mall (large and generic, 4 department stores and a big food court for all you hardened shoppers). That's a quick tram ride or a 10 minute walk. Grove Street is the close-by shopping neighbourhood with a good choice of independent stores and food. And downtown Jersey City is another lo-rise older neighbourhood that balances out time spent on 5th Avenue nicely. Is at all wonderful? No. The waterside scheme includes a mini mall, bars and restaurants, but only opens Monday to Friday. While a train journey from Newark airport is cheap and fairly quick, you have three transfers, and you're on your own pretty much tackling the tickets, route and local geography. It's about $39 for a cab against $15 on the train so 2 people should get the cab and save energy. The hotel is fine. The location is great. There are several new hotels in the area and I'd certainly recommend looking at these as well. Or call the Candlewood direct and haggle!

Just fine

The room was fine, with all the accoutrements of home. Some of the furniture was a little worn, and the hotplates gave off a strange odor when turned on, but otherwise my stay there went smoothly. I enjoyed the food area and the workout room. The staff was very nice, kindly, and attentive.

Pros: - close to two PATH train stations to NYC - close to NJ light transit trains - really nice staff - clean room - mini kitchen Cons: - room was not sound proof - the room was old, needed a few things fixed (eg. bathroom door was hard to shut)

PATH train stations, the one south of the hotel takes you to the world trade center subway station, and the one north of the hotel can take you all the way to penn station.
