Five stars all around. Super clean , friendly / helpful staff. Great views and surroundings

Was unclear if room was suppose to be cleaned daily. Had a smell when walking into the room -- musty, wet carpet type of smell. Positive -- very quiet and restful

Very clean, secure, nice neighborhood, nice layout

Great location, amazing staff. The room was clean and comfortable.

Nice location, 25 per night for parking which is safe. Don't check out early you will be penalized.

Loved it! Great place for couples and families stay. Planning to stay again really soon.

Hotel is fine, and just that staff could probably stand to know more about the areas attractions other than that all was great

The check-in wasn’t smooth. The young lady at the desk became distracted twice by incoming calls. She was alone at desk. One call she was on, involved a lot of apologizing on her part. Not sure what the caller was having an issue with. You pay $25 per night to park, which I found RIDICULOUS. I was there for Beatles Fest. We could’ve and should’ve stayed at the Hyatt, where they held the event at the same price, in a large room with panoramic views of NYC. And then there’s a $50 “holding fee”??? Really now. Most places will have your card info IN CASE they need to place further charges. This place charges first, then refunds. And heaven forbid you don’t place your enormous parking tag on your rear view mirror. I was told we’d likely be towed! We were running a little late to the event, which was less than a mile away. We had no choice to go do the check-in first because after midnight, you’re SOL. No check-in. I can’t remember the last time I stayed anywhere that didn’t have a complimentary breakfast. The room has a coffee maker and they left one packet of regular coffee and one decaf. No creamer. The only thing that was great was that the room with the sofa sleeper was large. It had a kitchen and living room and a separate bedroom.

Had a great time walking along the water and enjoying the views. Hotel was very accommodating and in a great area. There are many excellent restaurants nearby!

Awesome view of the city. The water is a 1min walk. Great location however no free parking !!!!!

The rooms are clean though felt a bit cramped. Lots of workspace and a kitchenette for extended stays. It's a place to sleep, not a place for a business meeting and that's okay if you know it going in there.

I am amazed at the amenities available for the price. Full fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and stovetop in room. Free laundry service, and can rent other amenities (crockpot, blender, etc) and movies ! Secure parking....which is now $10/night....it's not free anymore. Very friendly staff! Enterprise service right in lobby. Only minutes to walk to NJ light rail and PATH to get into NY. Safe, upcoming area, near college campus. I definitely will be staying again!

Staff was incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating. I cannot say enough nice things about them! The hotel however needed some maintenance. I actually got locked into the self serve snack room and had to call the front desk from my cell phone to let me out. Our room had a door lock problem as well. The shuttle service was entirely inadequate. We ended up walking more than desired and taking Uber rides. The car rental folks were super nice and their service was convenient as well. Finally we were disappointed in the lack of room service. We expected clean sheets and towels etc in the room instead of the weekly service offered at this hotel.

The Candlewood suites are very well located, neat everything in Jersey City. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the personnel very helpful. There is a free shuttle to go to the Path station, the mall or the most important shops.

Good value. Hotel and room a little dated but clean.

Good hotel. A little old but accommodating staff, etc.
