Great place to stay close to NYC

This hotel is in a great location. There are several restaurants in the area within walking distance. There is shopping across the street and a Walmart within walking distance. To get to NYC there is a bus stop across the street. You can purchase a round trip ticket into the city for $7.50. The trip was a 15-20 min trip that drops you in the Port Authority near Times Square. The hotel had breakfast that started at 6am each morning. The only complaint is that the wifi is very sketchy. While my phone connected, the iPad did not. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Nice

We stayed at this hotel to visit NY. There is a bus station to NY near the hotel, so we didn't bother the distance from NY. ( However, it took one hour from here to Times square when it is morning or late afternoon.) Our room was close to the parking, but it was so quiet. They served hot meals like sausage, potatoes, or meat pate at breakfast.

Very close to work site

I was looking for something affordable for a last minute business trip and this was perfect. I couldn't ask for a more convenient location to the job site. The staff was very friendly and the hot/cold breakfast was great. Also, there are many restaurants within a block.

Cute little place.

This was a little hard to find, but a safe neighborhood for a middle-aged woman. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really quite adequate. It was convenient to NYC. Price was reasonable for the area. There's a little mall across the street that offers an extensive choice of amenities.

Great find.

This was a great hotel. I had a very nice room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. I was able to use the free Wi-Fi to do some work. The parking was free. The breakfast was very good. There were plenty of places within walking distance to get dinner. I was travelling alone and felt safe and secure. I didn't use it but the bus stop to the city was within walking distance. All in all, I was very happy and will use this hotel again.

Couples Football Club trip

Hotel was clean and the front desk staff (especially Jennifer (aka 320) were very helpful, friendly and very easy to talk with and get info about NYC and the surrounding restaurants. We had a great time touring New York without paying those New York prices to stay in the city. I would recommend this hotel, for it's location, friendly staff, and cleanliness. Great trip with great memories...especially our Steeler victory!

Excellent place to stay!

The staff was over-the-top nice and made sure we were doing well and had everything we needed. We stayed in NJ and commuted to NY each day. The bus stop was across the street, a Wal-mart was just down the road and restaurants were all in walking distance. It was perfect! An inside pool would have made it perfect. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely stay there again if we go to NY.

Great location, Helpful Staff

We arrived early and the staff was very efficient. They helped us get a bus schedule and helped us catch a bus to the city. Free parking is another benefit as parking is expensive in the NYC area. The best place to stay on your next trip to NYC.
