“Real value,ideally located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Our family of four adults stayed here for a week, while we explored both Manhatten and nearby Hoboken.To make things affordable we booked only one room with two queen beds and added a rollaway bed (at no extra charge). The room was comfortably sized so even with four adults we were not too cramped. The hotel was very quiet particularly at night and we were able to rest very soundly after long days exploring the area.We didnt have a great deal of interaction with the staff, but when we did we found them helpful and welcoming.
As other reviewers have pointed out the PATH station is next to the hotel running regularly to 33rd St,World trade Centre or Hoboken. We recommend buying a Smart Pass which can then be loaded up with credit and trips then cost only $1.50 each as opposed to $2 each on fixed trip passes,singles or returns. Even at night the train and stations felt safe and are kept clean with staff almost always visible.
Just across the road are a Starbucks and a Gourmet Deli. The latter really lives up to its name with a super range of upmarket wraps,sandwiches or hot take away plates. We really enjoyed nearby Hoboken (Birthplace of Frank Sinatra) as a change of pace to Manhatten. Its as if time has stood still from around 1955? here but in a nice way. Independant stores a wide range of restaurants and bars and a waterside promonade make it well worth a look.
The Hotel represents much better value than Manhatten is relatively new and still in very good condition. Cant see any reason to go back to staying 'over the water' and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Some rooms on higher floors have view of Manhatten and Hotel will help you book Taxi at reasonable r...

Sure they are in NJ but the PATH is directly next door! The rooms are spacious! I mean you really have alot of space to move around and put your luggage out of the way. You don't have the noise that you have in the city. Clean and well maintained. I didn't find anything in our room that needed repair or replacing. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accomodate any of our requests. We've decided that this will be the place we stay whenever we go to NYC!

Debated between Holiday Inn Express 5th Ave. & 45th near Times Square and this hotel. The Holiday Inn TA comments mentioned noise and tiny rooms. Chose this hotel for spaciousness, convenience in driving/parking, and quiet night's sleep. Arrived, via own car, early afternoon the day after Christmas and were greeted by the very personable valet. Our room was ready so we went right up and dropped off our belongings. Then we headed to NYC via the convenient PATH station immediately adjacent to the hotel.

The hotel's kiosk attendants/front desk staff were personable and helpful. Location felt very safe even at 2am when we romped through the charmingly decorated and illuminated Christmas garden behind the hotel just before the riverfront walkway. We walked along the riverfront at 2am taking in the picturesque NYC skyline.

Perfect location across from large indoor mall with theater so we could catch a late night showing of MI4: Ghost Protocol. Cosi is across the street for breakfast and lunch. The hotel lobby also has a Starbucks cafe w/ light fare, but the hours seemed limited?

My three daughters and I had a terrific, but short visit. The hotel was mostly quiet, though we did hear some noise from the room next door as they readied themselves in the am. We slept in and the beds were very comfy and the room cozy. I am a light sleeper and there were no AC/Heating noises.

After checking out, we headed to Hoboken 1 mi. north to visit Carlos' Bakery and the wait to get in was over 3 hrs. Instead, we joined other tourists in taking pics out front. But, we did find a fun overstock shop, Cheap Maggies, right on the main street. Bought good quality college hoodies and NCAA tournament jackets/hoodies for $5 each. The girls found some American Eagle real suede boots for $20/pair. Leather jackets were plentiful and reasonably priced too.

If you want to drive up to NYC and not deal w/ the hassle of driving IN NYC, this is the place to stay. You get the amazing NYC skyline, nearly riverfront location, mall convenience, and easy NYC access via the PATH which lets you out at WTC or 33rd not far from Macy's, Penn Station, Empire State Building. $2.00 each way per person, The only down side to the PATH is that it doesn't run frequently on weekdays. We waited at least 15-20 mins. for the train midday. The trip itself is quite short - 8-12 mins. depending on the stop.

Something we learned about using the NYC subway is that you can only have 2 credit card transactions a day. After being locked out of the automated machine and checking w/ the attendant, he recommended we all 4 share ONE card. I don't know how that would go over during rush hour, but that's what we did - tricky, but doable. I don't like to travel w/ much cash, but that could be an alternative to the credit card limitation if you don't mind carrying the leftover change. I do as I like to travel light. ;-)

We attempted to eat at the well reviewed Brooklyn Diner at 212 W. 57th St. near 7th Ave./Carnegie Hall. After a 15 min. wait, we were somewhat seated. The place is VERY SMALL - customers are sitting on top of one another, w/ no room to put your coat on the back of your chair. Prices were high even for NYC. $15-20 for a hamburger. We opted to leave and go to our usual diner, La Parisienne, at 910 7th Ave. near Central Park/Carnegie Hall (around the corner from Brooklyn Diner) which serves basic but tasty diner food. We again got the Reuben platter ($11) and tried their hot roast beef sandwich w/ gravy ($10) which was tasty. The triple decker club sandwiches looked yummy. We'll be trying those next visit. They are hospitable and the food is decent. http://www.allmenus.com/ny/new-york/113711-la-parisienne/menu/

Travelling w/ a family, this hotel is an excellent choice and makes visiting NYC and Carlos' Bakery much easier and enjoyable. Paid $179 plus tax for 2 queen bed room. I think this was a standard room, but it was quite spacious.

Room Tip: Ask for room w/ NYC view, some of the higher floors have one I'm told.

We stayed here 3 nights pre cruise in May 2011. I was looking for easy access to NYC with out spending a lot of money and this was perfect. We had a king room and it was plenty big enough to never feel cramped and it had a view of the Empire State Building.
The day we arrived the Path was shut down for a while while the president was at Ground Zero but by the time we were ready to go into the city it was back open.
We would stay here again if we ever come back.

Room Tip: ask for room on higher floor with view of NYC

If going to NYC and you want convience then stay here. You can get on the NJ path right next door and be in Time Square, 34th Street or the 9/11 memorial in 15 min and it is only $2 per person each way. The motel is clean and staff is extra nice. You can walk to the river. My daughter and I stayed alone and felt very safe. The price is a lot less expensive than anything in Time Square and the view of Manhatten from the river is amazing. Will definitly stay there the next time we visit

My daughters live in JC and NYC. We stay here whenever we go to visit. It's location right next to the PATH train into the city is super convenient. The hotel itself is clean. The staff is always friendly. Parking is also available. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Great location and value!

For less than the price of a less than average Manhattan hotel and right across the river (via the 24/7 PATH train system), there's a great and incredibly convenient location to rest after a day (or night) of "doing the town".

This property is literally in front of the Pavonia/Newport PATH station making it even more convenient. It's immaculate and just about brand-spankin' new with an indoor pool and jacuzzi on the ground floor. The room I had was spacious, clean, comfortable and just to my liking!

For shoppers, there's the Newport Mall across the road and other shopping as well (btw, New Jersey doesn't charge sales tax on clothing!) Also within walking distance is a deli, Starbucks and a waterfront view of downtown Manhattan.

Another great factor is it's nice & quiet here, getting away from the noise of downtown NYC. Come to New York City and make this place your restful and enjoyable spot with New York practically at your doorstep!
