Surprisingly nice

wHEN WE BOOKED THIS HOTEL, IT WAS OUT OF PURE NECESSITY AND very tight budget. I was expecting a horrible evening, but to be fair, was pleasantly surprised. I have paid 2x as much for a much worse stay. The room and bathroom were clean, the flatscreen tv was brand new and, most surprisingly, the staff were very friendly. They even upgraded us to the "honeymoon suite", complete with heart shaped jacuzzi, for free. overall, If I had to, Id stay again and not think twice about it.

A very nice stay.

I stayed one night in this hotel, and I have very few complaints. The only one is the location, it's literally right next to a very busy road. Other than that, I was very comfortable, the room was very clean, and everything was just great. Even the staff was fairly friendly. I was actually taken by surprise because of some of the awful reviews, but I figured it couldn't be that bad. I gave it a shot, and I am very pleased and would definitely stay here again.

Cheap and effective

For the price a great value in a little bit out the way area. It's in 5 minute ride from journey square in jersey city. The room was good for what it was meant for a bed and a nights sleep. Bonus is the bar next door that sells very cheap big drinks. You can get comp breakfast in am in lobby. The basics but enough to get you going.

Absolute DUMP

Located in a very tough neighborhood surrounded by trash and junk everywhere. It was so dirty we immediately checked out and left. Room, if that is what one would call it, was dank, dark, and no idea how clean. Bathroom was impossible to navigate. Sit on the john and the toilet paper dispenser is stuck under the toilet seat lid making you stand up, lift the lid, to get to the paper. Never again. Agent did negotiate a refund for what would have been a second night. No handicapped access to any second floor rooms, which is where we were supposed to go.

Broke Travelers

You are getting exactly what you're paying for. I was actually surprised that the hotel was better than I had imagined it would be. If your looking for something with easy access to the city, stay in the city. For a short NYE show run without crazy prices, not a bad option.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're taking a ferry from the city to the hotel DO NOT WALK! Take a cab regardless of the price-safety first! Also, if you're using an iPhone GPS to get I the hotel, it will initially bring you to the wrong location. Hence why walking isn't the best option!

Recently updated but still needs work.

Rooms are being redone and are nice with all of the usual amenities. The television needs to be replaced, there is no intensity available. I am a lite sleeper so the road noise was a bit much. But that is me.

Acceptable

I am conscious of the fact that I am on an expense account so I always look to spend less that I would had I been on my own. The hotel is 5 minutes from public transport and I get to my water front office in 25 minutes. I also get to the NYC office in about an hour by public trans and 1/2 hour by car. The rooms are clean, the wireless above average, the breakfast - if you can call it that - is skimpy, but by and large all is OK.

not a good place for family

Staff friendly, and rooms is ordinarily clean BUT at night early morning it is quite evident that "ladies of the evening" see this as a good spsot for business. Definitely would never stay there or suggest it to anyone else
