The traffic is a little inconvenience. Others are all good. It's value for the price. See full review

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

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

Affordable, Near Manhattan

Got lucky and scored an Eastside room on a high floor which gave us an awsome view of the city.

Poor quality accomadations great staff.

The rooms were of poor quality . Staff was friendly and helpful. No WiFi which made it difficult to work there. I asked for a room that is not next to the supply room on my floor and not next to the stairs and I was ignored . The elevators were breaking down all the time and they only had two .

Think Again

Just about average. Very bad customer service and if you are planning on using their shuttle to get to the station, the service is horrendous. Given the number of people and the distance to the station, the hotel ought to have a few shuttles running back and forth instead they make you wait for hours.

Could have been better

Upon checking in, I found that my window would not close, the heater would not work, lamps missing light bulbs, shower curtain missing about 3-4 rings. I was too tired to complain, just hid under the covers & froze. Next morning the staff corrected everything. Internet service was shaky and EXTREMELY slow.Parking was free but a long walk away. Made it tough due to the stormy weather.
