Only 1 block from the NJ rail system into Manhattan - well lite at night. A decent breakfast. Comfortable bed. Water pressure was good, lots of hot water. Did not see any bugs. Towels were sufficient. Nothing in the area worth seeing. Great place to stay if going into Manhattan and want to save a few bucks, but plan a full day in the city because you won't want to come back to the hotel to rest - it's to inconvenient for that. We were exhausted when we got back after a full 14 hours in the city. It would have been nice to rest in the room in the middle of the day.
Next time I will probably spend the extra cash and stay in Manhattan. Overall a great 3 night stay.
This hotel is very close to Path station at Journal Square. We did not have a car with us, so I don't know about any parking issues. But one can use a small street called Magnolia to walk to this hotel. I admit that the neighborhood "looks" unsafe and shady but after having walked to the hotel at 1:30am and 10pm, personally I would rate it a safe neighborhood. Magnolia seems like a perfect place for muggers, but it was just the opposite. THere are houses on the street with families living there and several people (local and tourists) walked through it at night.
I had a room with two double beds and was surprised to see two bedrooms and two TV sets and also a set of microwave and refrigerator! Beds were clean and very cozy. The windows were useless coz there are buildings right next to it, so it felt kind of dark indoors. EVen the bathroom was very small and not very well lit but it was clean. But we were touring most of the time and were at the hotel only to sleep.
Among the staff, I met some very nice ones and then especially one who was disinterested and had no idea of the surrounding streets. It didn't bother me as much though. There are no restaurants or fast food joints close by but the front desk handed out menus for atleast 4 places that I could request delivery from.
Continental breakfast was awesome. Newark airport is 15 mins of drive and their shuttles leave promptly at every hour. The front desk took care of our luggage while we ate our breakfast before departing.
All in all a nice experience for the price we paid. If you don't care too much about small bathrooms and sometimes un-polite staff, you can try this out.
The things I like best was the price, location to the train and the breakfast. It took a little work finding the place but after that things went fine. The parking was a short block away ($8 per/day) and the train into NYC was a long block away.
The only drawback is the neighborhood. It's a little rough looking although we didn't have any problems. Saturday night when we got back from the show it was around 12:30 and there wasn't a soul around from our walk from the train.
Overall I would stay here again.
We had a little troble finding the hotel but after we arrived it was fine. The parking was a short block away ($8 per/day) and the train is a long block away. The hotel was a good value for the money. The breakfast in the morning was a surprise. We took the train into the city and once we figured out where the train goes it worked fine.
The only drawback is the nieghborhood, it's a little rough. Friday the street was packed but when we came back after the show on Saturday night after midnight there wasn't a soul around.
All in all I would stay there again. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. The best part was the price.
I must admit off the bat, that I did not stay at this hotel, even though my office had me booked there. I had a hard time finding the place, partially because the area did not look like it would contain a large franchise like Ramada. I also had a very hard time finding designated parking nearby. There were some rough-looking kids hanging around the entrance that looked gang connected. I wasn't comfortable walking with my luggage and laptop and I'm a rather large guy and not easily spooked. I did venture inside, however. Apparently I entered a rear entrance and could not easily find the front desk. The ceilings were very low on the first floor and I was forced to duck exposed pipes along the ceiling. By that time I decided that this place was not for me. It just did not strike me as a comfortable place to stay despite the reasonable rate.
As many times as to visit, I still need directions to the hotel and the staff is always helpfull and pleasent. The rooms are clean and accommodating (iron, microwave, etc.). The hotel is convenient to the Path train and it is very easy to get in and out of NY from the hotel. I love the price!
For the last five years that I have been going to NY, I have only stayed at this hotel. The price is perfect, the hotel is clean, the rooms are very comfortable, the staff is friendly/helpful, and the continental breakfast is perfect!
We booked this hotel for the Bike New York event. You are two blocks away from the Path subway and a ten minute subway ride to the WTC stop. The neighborhood looks a little sketchy but my wife and three teenage daughters felt safe. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The hallways of the hotel were wide and well maintained. Our rooms were comfortable. This hotel is a bargain since it includes breakfast.
There is a great diner just two blocks from the hotel with really great food and very friendly staff.
The hotel has more of a feel of an urban, European hotel. There is no parking at the hotel, but rather at the lots nearby. The hotel was clean and felt safe. The only reason I give it a "4" is the cost of an internet connection.
I want to recommend The Ramada Limited in Jersey City to anyone who wants good value for money and convienient location for a NY visit. It's a great alternative to the Manhattan hotels. I originally wanted to book in Manhattan but after searching I turned out with an empty hand, either very bad reviews from guests or far to expensive (like 300-500 USD pr night). The Ramada Limited is clean, has spacious rooms with large bathrooms, friendly staff and helpful. It's just a block away from the Journal Square PATH station, but from there one can ride the trains either to World Trade Center (10 mins) or up to 33rd street ((20 mins)with stops at 9th, 14th, 23rd and 29th streets if I remember correctly). The fare is 1,5 USD. The surroundings of the hotel is not very attractive but we felt totally safe walking in the area. There are few resturants in the area but still some, e.g. we stumbled upon a nice Indian resturant very close by (forgot the name of it unfortunately). Breakfast is included in the price of the rooms (130 USD with all taxes). The breakfast room is a bit small and the elevators are a bit slow, thats the only things I can complain about. I recommend the hotel and would not hesitate to stay there .. any time!
This hotel really suprised me, the only thing that I was not pleased with the parking and the traffic area. Overall the hotel was really clean and convenietly close to the train station that goes to Manhattan.
