Clarion Secaucus

Its OK. The elevators always have problems. There is no real restaurant. The Bar is open sometimes. Luckily there are plenty of places nearby that offer the services most other hotels would provide

Outlet shopping

Check in around 8:30 thank goodness I check in before we went out. Room was dirty had to go back to desk and demand another room. The second room was much better but there was a big gathering at the hotel. Children we're all over the place and made it hard to exit elevators .

Inexpensive, near NYC

We had a pleasant stay here. I read all the reviews and did lots of research on hotels with pools and fitness centers around $100 throughout our cross-country trip from CA to NY and back again. Traveling with kids ages 6 and 8, it's important to find safe hotels in good locations that are kid-friendly. This hotel met all my criteria, although the outdoor pool's water was freezing and the fitness center was minimal. Starbacks was open as it was Friday morning (open only F, Sat, and Sun), and we ordered pretty good food from their restaurant the night before. There was no refrigerator or microwave, although you could get one on request. It was a quiet stay, and bus line 129 is a 3-minute walk and a 30-minute ride to Port Authority in NYC. Overall, we were satisfied and would stay here again if our budget was still around $100.
