I decided to take a chance and stay at this hotel for a night rather than pay the exorbitant room rates and parking fees to stay in Manhattan, Queens, or Brooklyn. The hotel is located in a suburban area of North Jersey and Manhattan is an easy 1/2 hour drive away. I was completely satisfied by the experience. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the free wi-fi was reliable, the parking was free, and a full hot breakfast was provided. The area around the hotel seemed safe and quiet, and there are some cute little towns to explore before heading into the city. I definitely recommend this as a budget-friendly option for staying in the New York area, and I plan to return to this hotel in the future.
