Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2HappyGuest Loved this place
We had to attend a wedding in the middle of Manhattan so I did a lot of searching for a good hotel for a great price and I found it! This place saved me hundreds of dollars for my four day trip. It is a block from the Path train which can take you right to the WTC in no time. This place is set up for extended stay so you have your own microwave, refrigerator, plates, and cookware. The neighborhood was very safe and I did not feel worried at all walking home from the Path station at three in the morning. This place had one of the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept in. All of the staff that I encountered was very helpful and nice. My wife and I will be staying here again for sure. We were very impressed to say the least.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Disres Convenience, Comfort, Accommodating
I recently stayed at the Candlewood Suites Jersey City for 4 months and left highly satisfied from my stay. The hotel is conveniently located near PATH, close to shopping, and routes north, south, east, and west. The rooms are comfortable and well planned for extended stays. The kitchen area is ample and one can cook on the 2 burner counter stove and in the microwave oven. The bed is very comfortable, the bath very good, and laundry facilities are free and close by. Candlewood's staff is outstanding too and they work tirelessly to accommodate your needs. Since this is more of an extended stay facility rather than a short-term hotel, room service is limited, although many folks order out for food delivery. Unlike other nearby facilities, parking here is also quite adequate and never had any problem finding a convenient spot. My only concern here is the entry and exit gate and the poorly designed control arms. These need to be replaced and improved upon.
Finally, the rates charged were in line with other hotels in the area and better than the nearby competitors.
In summary, I was highly satisfied and recommend the Candlewood Suites for its location, service, price, and accommodations oriented to the long-term guest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KareninDE Great place to stay outside the city!
Great hotel near NYC for less than the cost of staying in town. Short walk to the PATH station. Nice alternative if you don't mind taking the subway or ferry back and forth. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Shopping is withing walking distance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cw42 Very nice accommodations near the city.
We spent 2 nights at the Candlewood. The desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. You do pay $10/night parking for short stays. There is mixed web site information, many saying it is free, but that is not true, so we were a bit disappointed. Parking is easy and convenient. The hotel is in a nice area and is very quiet. Not much activity here during the weekend. We were able to check in early and the room was spacious and clean. We had basic kitchen utensils and dishes and a 4cup coffee maker. Full size refrigerator had an automatic ice maker. We had a large desk with 3 chairs, a recliner and a fold-out sofa bed with a separate bedroom (suite). Nice flat screen TV. Large bathroom with full tub/shower. Housekeeping does not come daily, which was fine for us. We had plenty of towels to last 2 days. Very roomy accommodations for the NY/NJ area. No pool or restaurant on premises.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Merrytraveller Great stay
Everything was as advertised. Clean, updated room, helpful staff, secure parking (free now, but a $10 daily charge in the near future). An excellent location for being close to NYC without NYC prices. Waterfront, a good grocery store, Newport Mall, and PATH system (underground to NY) all within 10-15 minute walk. We made breakfast in the suite each morning (stayed for 3 days) and then walked to the PATH system (single fare of $2.25 will get you close to Times Square/Theatre district in 20 minutes or so from the time you purchase your ticket). Toured all day and then either picked up take out or stopped at the grocery store for supplies on our return to prepare our own evening meals (kitchen facilities great)... so expenses can be minimized if desired. We'd quite happily stay here again.
