Close to Bus Stop to NYC

Great place to stay outside of NYC with a easy bus ride into the city. Bus 129. The windows were pretty dirty and the water was slow to warm, but overall great hotel.

Good Business Trip location

Not bad. Staff very helpful. On site stuff like gift shop and normal higher end hotel things like restaurants and gift shop useless. Luckily mini grocery near-by and other things close if you have a car. Good place to stay though if you are spending time in NYC but don't want to pay 3 times as much

Great Location close to MetLife stadium.

Was able to check in early. Room was spacious and clean. Only downer was the sports bar was closed for repairs. However the hotel lounge was open and serving food late at night after the game. Friendly staff and plenty of parking.

It is a best choice if looking for a cheap hotel just to stay during your trip. Closer to a bus stop too.

Friendly staff, good location, but needs some work

Stayed one night for a trip to NYC. Great location, close to highways. The staffs were friendly and professional. But there was somekind of black dusts in the tub and the overall cleaness of the room to be much desired.

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
